If you have never played golf before or are just starting out it is best to find a qualified Professional to help you with your journey. Starting with the fundamentals and working your way towards a repeatable efficient game makes the journey and the game of golf more rewarding.
First step approaches:
Fundamentals – Make sure you are setting up to the ball with good alignment, grip and posture
Timing – This is the beginning of a long friendship; good timing is the difference between an enjoyable round of golf or a day where it all just doesn’t seem to work.
Equipment – Make sure you have equipment that fits! Too many times if clubs are too long/short, heavy or light it can lead to extra work and swing issues that after a while can become detrimental to the enjoyment and efficiency in the golf game.
Mental Attitude – A positive attitude goes a long way in how you approach not only the swing but eventually the score and ultimately your enjoyment of the game.
I have learnt so much about this game over the last 30 years or so that I have been involved with golf. The most important lesson of all as I continue in my own personal journey and in that of helping others is how enjoyable time spent on the golf course can be shared with both old and new friends.
