Putting is one of the most important parts of the game. It won’t matter how far you hit the ball if you can’t convert once you get onto the green. If you want to improve your putting skills, then you have to follow a few tips. First, you have to make sure that you do not break your wrists. This means that your wrists should stay locked at all times. You should not be swinging your hands.

The drive is one of the most crucial aspects of golf. A day that is full of long, straight drives is highly preferred to a day of shanks and unplanned visits to the rough.

The first rule of a great drive is to keep the head down. The only thing the golfer needs to look Read the rest of this entry »

You love golf. You can’t get enough of it and the only thing you love more than watching all your golf channels from places like SatelliteTV-HQ is playing the sport. However, not everyone can be a pro but we all have a little Tiger in us from time to time – it just takes a little practice to reach your full potential. If you love the sport as much as we do then you will want to read these tips we have compiled on improving your game and remember that the best way to improve your game, overall, is practice.
1. Speed, not strength – when you swing your club, make sure you focus on speed and less on strength. Your form and technique will carry the ball farther than sheer brute force.
2. Practice good form – take some time to really analyze your form. Your swing should be a fluid arch motion.
3. The touch – putting is a very important part of the game but mastering it can be difficult. Hit some balls into a coffee cup and really practice managing your speed and strength to sink those shots on the green.
4. Get a feel for the terrain – knowing the ground and the inclines will help you judge how to proceed on the course.
5. Focus on your form and not your gear – this point can’t be stressed enough – after all, the tools don’t make the man.

This year’s British Open will be just as competitive as last years. Though every year it seems as if an unknown golfer finds their way to golfing stardom, I believe that a veteran will find their way to the top in the British Open. Golfers like Rickie Fowler and Chad Campbell are among my favorites to win and I believe that they will be around the top of the leader board. I also see Tiger Woods and Ernie Els fighting to make a move on Sunday and they will definitely be making their mark during the Read the rest of this entry »
