Golf Swing Tip Instructions - How To Draw The Ball by Terry Edwards
If you want to learn the secret to drawing the ball, then these golf swing tip instructions will
give you some much needed help.
If you're like most golfers, slicing the ball has never been a part of your golf game that you've
needed to practice on, it's just come naturally. But, drawing the ball is a different story. You're
not alone though, as upwards of 90% of all golfers have problems with slicing the ball.
So, how do you go about changing that and start hitting a draw?
Here are some quick tips.
1. We're going to assume that you are right-handed. If not you just need to reverse these
instructions. You begin by taking a 5-iron and setting up to the ball as you normally do.
2. Now, you will need to move your feet to the right of your intended target area. To get the
correct angle is going to take some practice, but begin with 10 degrees right of your target. If
that's not enough, then you can simply make more adjustments.
3. Next, you will maintain the face of your 5-iron pointing at your intended target.
4. Maintain your normal golf grip and swing at the ball. Keep your regular follow through.
If you have several balls in a row that hook too much, or not enough, make some additional
adjustments with your stance.
As with any golf swing tip instructions, the key to success is practice. With that in mind, keep
these points in mind:
-Practice drawing the golf ball with every club in your bag.
-Don't change your regular golf swing. Make the adjustments with your stance or grip, but
you don't want to change your golf swing.
-Start out drawing the ball slightly to allow your body and your mind to get a feel for it. You
can always practice more serious draws in due time.
-Consider taking a golf lesson if you can. You can find more information on golf tips and
lessons at the end of this article.
Learning to hit a simple draw is not difficult if you put these golf swing tip instructions to work
for you. In fact, I believe you can be hitting it consistently in a short amount of time. As you do,
you'll start to notice increased distance and no more slices.

How To Successfully Make Changes In Your Golf Swin g by The Golf Swing
If you are looking to improve your golf swing, there are a few helpful tips that can make this
process easier for you.
When working on changes with a golf instructor or whatever method of improvement you
choose, there are some problems that may come up.
First of all, often times a golf instructor may give the student too much information where they
start feeling overwhelmed. Trying to think about too many things in the golf swing will usually
lead to poor results. The analytical or left part of the brain is where technical thoughts are
processed and stored. The golf swing is a motion which needs the right brain to be involved
also. Ideally, it's nice to have a balance between technical thoughts and thoughts that are
related more to feel.
In order to successfully integrate a golf swing move correctly, it must be combined with a
feeling of smooth, rhythmic tempo. Trying to worry about where your left or right elbow is at a
certain point of the golf swing can cause the body to become stiff or tense whereby a fluid
swing is difficult to achieve.
The swings that are most effective generally will have a good balance of technique and feel.
It's important to have good fundamentals and proper golf swing technique. When you try and
work on improving your technique, it is very helpful to focus on one or two things at a time.
Trying to change 4 or 5 things in your swing all at once is pretty near impossible and will most
likely lead to increased frustration.
It's helpful to have a good instructor to guide you as to which part or parts of your swing to
focus on first.
There is an order you want to go about making changes. First, check your grip and setup. If
something is off in the setup, it will make your swing path be off as well. Fixing the setup and
things like alignment or ball position can actually improve your golf swing path quite a lot. I
like to focus on getting a good setup first so that making a good and simple swing is a lot
easier to do.
If you have a problem in your downswing, most likely this is related to or caused by a problem
in your backswing. Fixing your backswing issue can indirectly help to improve anything that
may be an issue in the downswing.
Have fun while trying to make changes in your golf swing. Have someone who can help guide
you or a system you can follow which works well for you.
Don't worry too much about your results right away when you are making a change. Your
main priority should be to incorporate the positive technique or change and then think about
the quality of your shots or your scores. Judging your results too early can hinder the
changing and improvement process.
Hopefully you have learned a few things about successfully making changes in your swing.

Golf Swing Drills To Improve Your Driving by Sam Kinsley
An excellent golf player almost always focuses on having the capacity to drive the golf ball
long and straight. The ability to drive the golf ball good gives you the maximal possibilities to
achieve lower scores. In order to drive the golf ball accurately, a person ought to practice with
the help of golf swing drills that can help a golf player to attain the perfect drive swing that
each and every golfer needs to have.
Use Good Technique, Rather Than Strength:
It is often mistaken that hammering the golf ball as far as possible requires all strength thus
players often try to apply more strength to be able to to drive the golf ball even further. This
couldn't be more mistaken. In an effort to drive the ball even further, you need to focus on
applying correct technique so that you can drive the ball as long as feasible.
Through the use of golf swing drills, you'll find out the optimal way to swing a driver and will
discover how to hit your drives longer and straighter.
Drill 1: Focus On A Point
Here is the least difficult drill that can be done as well as at the exact same time can give the
most effective results. In this drill, simply set your focus on a particular point and attempt to hit
that particular target with the golf ball. First, you will need to visualize a straight line between
your chosen point and the ball. Then, put an extra golf club on to the ground, parallel to the
line of the target. Utilize this golf club as a reference line and try striking the golf ball in the line
of the club towards the specific target. Practice this drill so long as you would need in order to
obtain consistency in striking the ball along the line of the club plus on point. This drill will help
you to strike the ball straighter as well as on point.
Drill 2: Control Distance And Curvature
1st, place golf weights onto your driver or wrap a bathroom towel onto your driver. This
certainly will increase the actual weight of the golf club, then when you swing the club, it will
be easier to fully feel the proper wrist rotation in addition to lag required through the driver
swing. This wrist rotation and lag subsequently could possibly be altered to be able to obtain
the ideal distance as well as curvature (draw or fade). It will be easy to evaluate the actual
realignment of wrist rotation and lag essential to strike drives where you would like along with
a draw or even a fade by practicing this drill again and again.
Drill 3: Obtain Maximum Drive Distance
To be able to drive the absolute maximum distance, it is vital to use the proper technique. The
particular backswing employed must be of the ideal length, since whenever the backswing is
too high or too up and down, it can result in significantly less over-all width in the swing and
loss of control of the drive. Likewise, if the backswing is too low or too around the body, it is
going to result in a drive that will not go very far. The optimum backswing should be between
the first two swing types in order that the width of the golf swing is wide plus straight so drives
are straight and long. This kind of backswing will also deliver the ideal launch angle so the
ball can fly as long as achievable.
Avoid Wrist Activity:
A good number of golfers unconsciously flip their leading wrist every time they make impact
with the golf ball, which happens to be drastically wrong and needs to be prevented. It is
necessary to have a strong wrist and the forearm should be able to support it. Try out some
lower arm exercises to strengthen your wrists as well as your forearms so you can keep your
wrists strong at impact.
Balance is one of the most important elements for a golf player. Not one of your golf shots are
going to be good when you are unstable or when you loose balance while in the shot.
Therefore, the most important golf swing drills which can be done would be to practice correct
body balance during your golf shots. You could try practicing your current driver swing and
keep ideal body stability. Try swinging with your right leg forward if you are a right-hander
when you follow-through following the swing and the other way around for left-handers. This
can help you to maintain the stability of your body and can aid you in having a ideal follow
through. This particular body balancing drill will allow you to decrease body imbalance and
also at the exact same time help improve the actual consistency of your golf shots.

General Golf Swing Tips
Ã¢• Â¢ Relax: you can have the best golf swing in the world, but if you are too uptight and

left and right, then on your next shot, relax, take more club, shorten your swing and simply
ensure that you are making solid contact with the ball

length and follow-through; keep lower body 'quiet'; make sure to hit through the ball.

Fix Your Slice: 5 Tips to Eliminate A Slice From Your Golf Swing by Kris
Understanding What A Slice Is
The slice shot is when the ball path starts left of the target then dramatically bends to the
right, for left-handers it is the opposite (right to left). Its caused by an open club face at
impact. This is the most common miss-hit by amature golfers, and can be frustrating at times
1. Ball Position
One of the easiest and quickest fixes is the placement of the ball in your stance. If the ball is
positioned too far forward at address, it is nearly impossible to square you club face at the
point of impact resulting in striking the ball with an open club face causing the all too familiar
sliced ball path. Try moving the ball further back in your stance, closer to the middle.
This is another easy fix. Gripping the club too tightly or having a "weak" grip can lead to
slicing the ball. On a scale of 1-10 you should grip the club around a 4. Think of the club as a
tube of toothpaste (cap off). You want to grip it tight enough so the tube doesn't fall out if you
swing your arm but not tight enough that toothpaste comes out. Another analogy I have heard
is to think of the club as a baby rabbit. You want to hold it tight enough that it wont get away
but not tight enough to hurt it. Make sure that most of your pressure is on the last 3 figures of
your left hand and the thumb and index finger on your right hand (opposite if left-handed).
Having a "weak" grip will also cause a slice. If your thumb on your left hand (right if lefty) is
more on top or to the left of the shaft, try rotating your hand clockwise. You should be able to
see 3 knuckles on your left hand if gripping the club correctly.
When you tend to slice your ball, some golfers will start aiming more left to try and correct a
slice. This is a big no no. Make sure you are properly aiming when addressing the ball. If you
aim left you can cause your swing arc to become to far left, only making your slice worst.
Place a club on the ground parallel to your aiming line. Your knees, feet, and hips should all
be parallel to the club and your aiming line.
Bringing your club up too high in your backswing can cause an out-to-in swing path which will
result in a slice. This is usually caused by not rotating your shoulders back enough. When you
stop your rotation short, your tend you use your arms and hands more in the downswing and
end up under rotating leaving the club face open. To fix this, rotate your shoulders back more
on your backswing. At the top of your backswing your back should be facing the target. If its
not you are under rotating. With a full rotation you will create the proper weight shift causing
you to swing less with your arms.
5. Swing Path
An outside-in swing path will cause you to slice every time. To fix this use this simple drill.
Place an empty water bottle or club head cover 4 or 5 inches behind the ball and 2 inches
outside. Place another water bottle or club head 4 or 5 inches in front of the ball and 2 inches
inside. This will force you to swing inside-out to avoid hitting the bottles or covers. Another tip
to fix this swing path is to tee up the ball with the logo on the back, inside quarter of the ball.
Aim for this spot on the ball and this will create an inside-out path.

The Best Golf Training Aid by Mike Pedersen
The best golf training aid is pretty basic.
But first let us answer a simple question so that we're all reading from the same page.
What makes the best golf training aid? In other words what qualifies it to be the best?
I believe that the fairest answer to that question is that it must be the sort of golf training aid
that has the best impact on your golf game. It has to be the sort of equipment that produces
the best results in terms of improvement in your golf game over the shortest period of time
Having laid down the ground rules, or made them clear, let me add that there are a number of
different training products that can qualify to be the best golf training aid. But for the purposes
of this article, we will focus on only one.
One of the best golf training aids has to be a weighted club. A weighted club has several
advantages that makes it so effective in helping many golfers improve their swing technique
and thus their golf game.
To start a weighted club enables a golfer to accomplish or practice two different aspects of
their golf swing at the same time. With the limited time most golfers seem to have, this has
got to be the most favored plus point that this golf training aid that is contention of being the
Firstly because of the additional weight, a golfer is able to exercise and condition the muscles
they use for their golf swing. Secondly the weighted club also enables the golfer to work on
their swing technique. Right from the set-up to the backswing and follow-through.
Considering what most trainers say is the most common mistake made by poor or bad
golfers, the weighted club can go a long way in correcting it. Some experts in golf training say
that the most common mistake made on the course is golfers trying to hit the ball as hard as
possible. This not only causes tense muscles and the opposite in results, but it can also quite
easily result in injury.
A weighted club will help condition and strengthen muscles so that the golf swing is executed
in a more relaxed and yet extremely powerful manner, which is bound to produce the best
Despite the fact that there are so many different types of equipment, challenging the weighted
club for the title of the best golf training aid is not easy.

Two Golf Putting Tips to Make Your Scorecard Look More Respectable by
Jim P Martin
One of the best golf putting tips that I can give you is this:
NEVER pass-up the opportunity to use the practice green before you play
PUTTING is half of the game of golf, 36 strokes of a par 72 are putts!
Most golf courses, if they are kept to a reasonable standard, will have an area set aside which
can be used for putting practice. This is usually 9 - 12 holes cut into a large green, on which
several golfers can practise at the same time.
Why should you practice at all? The greens on a golf course can change their characteristics
daily, depending on several factors - weather conditions, air temperature, if they`ve been
watered etc. Therefore, the greens will react very differently on damp days - running slowly to how they will on warm, sunny days - running fast. So, spending ten or fifteen minutes
practising beforehand will give you an insight of what to expect on the first green.
The second of my golf putting tips focuses on length. How often have you seen this - a guy
goes onto the practise green with 3 or 4 golf balls. He finds the longest possible diameter on
the green and proceeds to hit 25 and 30 feet putts right across it. To me, this is totally
pointless.These 25 and 30 footers are considered to be lag putts, even to professional
golfers, and most amateurs would be happy to finish within 3 or 4 feet. Secondly - as the idea
of practicing is to watch the reaction of the ball as it travels across the green - as the ball
nears the hole, how can he observe its reaction when he`s standing 30 feet away!
Mid to high handicappers, in my opinion, should be practicing putts 4 - 8 feet. Less than 4 feet
is probably 99% certain and longer than 8 feet would not be expected to be holed every time.
It`s that bit between the 4 and the 8 that causes the most trouble. Imagine, your an 18
handicap, you have a decent round of golf and come in with a 92 (net 74). Your feeling quite
happy as you sip your well-earned refreshment and re-live, in your mind, the morning`s
Then your face drops as you remember the three short-ish putts that you missed - all three of
them just 5 or 6 feet, oh if only........OK I'm getting a bit carried away now, but you can see my
point.Practicing putts at that kind of distance is far more effective, and valuable, than just
hitting random thirty footers.
Take our imaginary 18 handicapper, now imagine he`d practiced 4 -8 feet putts, now imagine
he`d practiced these twice a week for 6 months, now imagine that - on that rueful day 6
months ago -he didn`t miss those three 5 or 6 feet putts, and now (and you`ll have to use your
imagination here) think what this does to his score - his well-earned refreshment has become
a large one, as this is the first time he`s ever broken 90 - and his net score is now 71, the only
time he's ever been sub-par -So now he`s drinking double large ones and somebody needs to
take his car keys from him!
Don't forget, putting is ½ - 50% - 2/4 - 0.5 - 3/6 - 1:2 - and most importantly 36/72 of the game
I hope you enjoyed these golf putting tips and that you can make use (and sense) of them.

Golf Putting Drills to Build Confidence by John Paolino
Developing a high level of self confidence is an absolute must in putting and there are several
golf putting drills that will help you build that degree of self confidence. These are some of the
most commonly used drills by professional golfers that they use to start and end their practice
First is the Circle Drill. The main benefit is for you to quickly establish your rhythm and gain
confidence before a round.
1.To begin set six to eight balls around a hole with each ball roughly three feet from the hole.
2.Then one at a time putt each one into the hole.
3.By consecutively making several putts in a row you will quickly gain confidence.
4.Once you are able to get the entire circle in without missing, make another circle five feet
away from the hole and repeat.
5.This rapid series of short putts will get your rhythm and pace going quickly along with your
Second is the All in a Row Drill. With this drill you will also be developing your confidence and
tempo but in addition be working on your feel for the correct distance.
1.To start this drill line up five to six balls in a straight line from the hole.
2.Space each ball roughly two feet apart.
3.The putting target line is the same for each ball so the isolated variable in this drill is
4.Begin with the ball that is closest to the hole and work your way out to the end of the row.
5.Keep in mind to keep your head stable and do not look up until you have completed your
6.Also remember that you want to control distance with the length of your stroke.
7.By making only small alterations in the distance between each putt the result will be more
successful putts and again more self confidence.
Finally repeat both drills with your eyes closed. Prior to striking the ball close your eyes and
then take your putt. By practicing with your eyes closed you will develop the ability to visualize
the putt in your mind. This drill will encourage you to ingrain the feeling for your putts in your
Putting with your eyes closed is probably one of the most powerful drills you can practice.
This drill will dramatically improve your feel for distance and help you develop trust in your
stroke. As your judgment and feel becomes second nature your self confidence will
Although these drills are fairly simple that does not mean that they are not highly effective. By
quick rapid fire of easy putts, in which many will be sunk, your feeding your subconscious with
positive reinforcement and therefore building your level of confidence. If you only have a few
minutes of time before a round go to the practice green and perform the circle drill. This is a
much more productive for your mind set then taking those few minutes practicing forty or fifty
foot putts with a very small probability of sinking.
Learning how to putt takes dedication and practicing the right Golf Putting Drills that develop
proper fundamentals, consistency and self confidence. However with time and patiences
anyone can become an excellent putter.
