Golf Instructions

By: Milos

Assessing one's playing properties is the first step towards being adept at playing golf. Certain personal factors should be identified and if necessary, corrected. Golf is a game of relative precision. There's a little room for error in golf.

Power is always an issue in golf. Everyone wants to have more power, more delivery on drives. Even Tiger Woods have been silently assessing his chances for more power with a new graphite golf club. Though golf clubs like woods do have properties suitable for longer drives, the shorter irons give the needed control that is somewhat difficult on a typical wood. The trade-off though is lesser power.

By building a stronger grip, you can still deliver powerful strokes with an iron. A weak gripping is often characterized by one or two knuckles shown on your left hand during the address. This grip kills any power you might have built as you commence your swing. To correct this, turn your left hand towards the right until three knuckles are visible. This will afford more ball power and flight since it will keep you slinging the club head at the ball until its fullest position.

An efficient golf instructional glove like Rick Smith's Golf Gloves is suitable for gripping familiarity. It braces your wrist to the correct position as you make you swing but won't inhibit wrist movement. The good thing about this golf instructional tool is that it can be worn even during your regular play. You can purchase this online at: www.birdieball.com. This golf teaching tool costs $36.95.

Another neat golf instructional device is the Super Swing Trainer. It is actually a metal frame that you can use to guide your swings, every type and power of swing. By having a guide as you practice your swing, in no time consistent golf swings will almost be automatic. This golf teaching tool costs $159.99 at www.superswingtrainer.com.

Golf Instructions for Tough Bunker Situations

Bunkers along the green aren't that hard. In fact, it has become a standard ball trapping technique for long drives towards the green. But even if you are good at handling situations like this, bunkers that are located about 50 yards from the green isn't the same scenario.

Wedges aren't the top choice for this as they provide more lift to the expense of distance. Irons are the best for this. And remember the basics of digging up sand to help in slowing the ball? That won't apply here. Hit the ball squarely as you should in any other terrain. But compensate a little bit loft to clear the trap.

About the basics of bunker close to the green; it is a standard technique that you dig way beneath the golf ball, bringing some of the sand. This would help in slowing down the ball especially useful of bunkers beside the green.
