Improve Your Game

Golf is a great sport for health and wellness but it's also a good way to get out and enjoy the outdoors. Golf promotes many levels of fitness; cardio, mobility and flexibility to name a few. To get the most fitness out of your golf game it helps if you don't have to be concerned with your actual game. When you're frustrated you can't enjoy all the other benefits of the game. One way to do this is to take a lesson.It's never easy asking for help, but in golf, it is almost a necessity. Unfortunately, we often ask our buddies and partners, when in reality we should take a lesson or two from a pro.

You may worry that a Pro will critique harshly, but they are honest, positive and very helpful.

Lessons at the local course aren't as expensive as you might think and they are worth every penny. Your game will improve rapidly and cause you less frustration, making the game much more enjoyable for you.

Of utmost importance, is being honest about your game. The Pro will ask you what you want to start with; driving, chipping, putting or whatever you feel you need help with.

Listen carefully and follow the instructions. You may have doubts if the Pro changes your stance, your grip or your swing; the Pro knows best. Be openminded about your lesson and what you can learn.

Don't hesitate to ask questions. Don't worry if you think the question or concern is stupid-they've heard it all before. The Pro is there to answer your questions and not ridicule you. If you don't "get it", tell him/her that you don't understand. You should never walk away from a lesson with unanswered questions.

You can concentrate on one thing during a lesson, or several. You might start with a lesson in driving; get the right grip, the right stance, the right swing, the right follow-through in one lesson, and then practice it. Next time, you might work on your short game, or putting.

You've invested in the equipment, doesn't it make sense to learn how to use them to their advantage and improve your abilities? Golf is a leisurely sport that can be great for your physical and mental health. Use the tools that are at your disposal to make this form of exercise more enjoyable.
