1. Check your alignment
Most right-handed people will naturally aim right, however that doesn’t always been the golf ball will go that way. Take time to align not only your feet, but your knees, hips and shoulders, not to mention the club face.
2. Posture makes perfect
Be sure to bend at the hip, not the waist. Make yourself solid and balanced before attempting a swing.
3. Get to grips with the grip
Place your weaker hand (left for right-handed golfer) at the top of the club with the right underneath. Many beginners think that the stronger hand should be at the top controlling the swing.
4. Take a swing at it
Imagine you’re skimming a stone or throwing a baseball, starting the movement with the lower body, with the upper body following.
5. Practice makes perfect
With many things, the more swings you can practise, the better you will become. Perhaps start with Pitch and Putt courses before moving onto the Par 3 course.
