Master the Golf Basics

This golf swing basics section of the website is dedicated to beginner golf tips for less experienced players…

As a beginner, the amount of lessons and tips on this site (let alone the entire Internet) can be a bit overwhelming. So where do you start? What areas of the game should you focus on first?

Fundamentals, Fundamentals, Fundamentals

Ask almost any club golfer what the most frustrating thing is about their golf game and they’ll tell you it’s inconsistency…

Every golfer has experienced hitting the perfect golf shot. They know what it feels like to strike the ball straight and true, right out the middle of the club.

But rarely are they able to hit great shots for an entire 18 holes. Or, if they play a great round of golf one week, it’s back to square one the next.

What causes such inconsistency?

Poor technique.

It’s nearly always down to an inefficient golf swing that is very difficult to repeat with any level of accuracy and control.

As a beginner golfer you have a unique opportunity…

Because you haven’t spent years ingraining bad habits, it will be much easier for you to build a solid, reliable golf swing around proven fundamentals.

So make a commitment to really master the proven fundamentals in the lessons and beginner golf tips below. Remind yourself of them every time you practice and re-visit these lessons at regular intervals.

Don’t be like most beginner golfers…

Don’t just head to the range and hit ball-after-ball hoping to get better solely through repetition. Yes – you’ll make some progress that way but, unless you have hours every day to spare at the range, it will be slow and frustrating.
