WHAT TO WEAR TO THE GOLF COURSE
All new golfers are concerned that they dress appropriately when arriving at the course. In this video you learn a few key details that will make sure you show up in style.
ARRIVING AT THE GOLF COURSE
Knowing what to do when you arrive at the golf course can be intimidating. In this video, I show you what to do when you drive in, how to drop off your golf bag, what to expect in the locker room, and making sure that you check in in the golf shop.
HOW TO DRIVE A GOLF CART
Ok…I assume nothing and that includes driving a golf cart. Most new students don’t ask me what to do but I can see it in their faces that they are not clear on how to manage a golf cart. When I volunteer a few key details to driving a cart, they are grateful…so I included a short video here, just in case you find it helpful. 😉
WHAT TO DO AT THE PRACTICE AREA
If you want to play golf and improve, you will need to discover the practice area. This is also called the driving range or practice range. This is the area where golfers warm up by hitting a few balls before they play or where they spend some time working on their golf game.
HOW TO HOLD THE CLUB
It all starts with how you hold the club or your grip. I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to learn a proper grip and to review it frequently to make sure you are on point.
HOW TO STAND OVER THE BALL
Your posture over the ball is important so that you can make a repeatable and powerful swing. It establishes your distance from the ball and when set up properly, makes your swing much more repeatable. PLUS, if you stand over the ball properly – you look like an instant golfer.
A SIMPLE BASIC SWING
Here I show you a few simple swing moves that you can easily repeat. This is a super way to get started so that you can get the ball up in the air. The key is to keep it simple, swing at a pace you can keep your balance and learn to brush the grass. You can do this!
LET’S REVIEW THE SWING
A little review to help remind you where to put your focus and how to keep it simple before we head to the golf course.
ANATOMY OF A GOLF HOLE
Before we head to the golf course, I want to make sure you have some golf terms and understand the different parts of the course. This helps put some context to the game and what we are trying to do when we play.
LET’S GO TO THE GOLF COURSE
Alright…it is time to play! Come along with me as I walk you through playing a golf hole and what to expect. You will learn how to start and finish a hole and some basic etiquette.
