Go for the Greens Golfing Tips (Part 3)

Practice Makes Better (Not Perfect)

If you are just beginning to golf or would like to improve your game a bit, then practice is important. You can take lessons, read books and watch videos, but in the end, you still must get out there and practice your swing and putting. The driving range can become your new best friend. Stop by the driving range for a 30-minute practice. Hit lots of golf balls to be able to feel more comfortable at the golf course.
Not sure you can make it to the range often enough? Here are some other ways to practice:
  • Keep a club near your desk and work on your grip.
  • Hit a few putts at home each night. Aim for a turned-over plastic cup.
  • If you have a dog, chip some tennis balls out in the hard for it to chase.
  • Top Golf and other venues offer a fun way to join friends and practice your swing.
  • Ask your expert golfing friends to provide you some tips on how, where and what to do to practice.
