We will reply the same day. Taking into account this is a beginners course we best cover the important elements like having the correct clubs.

 

What is in the bag? Plus your first steps to becomming a great golfer.

One rule you must remember, you can only have 14 clubs in your bag. In the bag: We all have our own personal preference.  Therefore to make it easy I have used the clubs from my bag as an example. Please do not assume we are promoting these clubs, the clubs you select are your choice. To start with, do not rush out and buy the most expensive clubs you can find. First, learn the fundamentals’ then buy your clubs there are many ways to purchase a good set of clubs at a reasonable price.

 

The Driver: There are many different lofts, which play a major part in trajectory –flight path – distance.

To go in all the technical details of loft would only confuse you at this stage, so to keep it simple the average club player will use 10.5° and a regular shaft.

Driver is only played from the Tee:    

Later in this course, we go in far more detail.   On the Tee you will also need, golf balls and tees

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fairway woods

(Strange they have retained the name woods) but over the years have been redesigned, and are now fairway metals

Fairway Metals: Easy-to-hit fairway metals that bring any green within reach.

Average club player would select 13° with graphite shaft.

 

This is a 3 wood.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Irons:

Long Irons Numbered 3 to 9 the lower the number the more distance you achieve. We will teach you how to be consistent, and learn to know the distance you play with each club.

Irons are a set numbered three to nine the higher the number the more loft the club has. The lower the loft the more distance you will hit the ball, the higher the loft less distance but more control.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wedges:

Wedges are unique providing increased spin, developed with a precisely machined, tight tolerance groove that provides the player with increased spin on both full and partial wedge shots.

 

Wedges loft designed for shots close to the green or out of the bunkers, we will teach you all the different shots.

The average club player will carry two wedges one 50 degree – 58 degree

With the 58 degree you can play chip shots onto the green, with a 50 degree will play shot out of the sand traps

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Putter: The putter is the most important club in your bag. You will use your putter on every hole. Even with professional golfers, their putting will determine if they win or lose.  One of the first objectives learn how to read the greens and to never three putt.

 

Putter is used more than any other club in your bag

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For beginners even the basics can seem complicated

The grip is important, strange, as it may seem the correct grip does not immediately feel comfortable. Look at the photos. There are other grips, however for this lesson we the feature to interlock grip, because that is the grip that most professional golfers use.

 

As a Coach I often say to beginners just think of the grip as shaking hand with the club.

Simple visual checks that we can ALL make; which we can do in front of a large mirror.

 

Stance, which should be the width of your shoulders, hold the club out in front of you and bend forward from the hips the point at which the club comes to rest is the position the ball should be at address.

 

Posture: Your back should be straight.

 

The key to great golf:

 

To develop a perfect swing that becomes like second nature you can repeat every time.

You must work on timing, rhythm, balance, and tempo. (Do not swing like a mad axe man)

 

Pre-shot Routine:

 

Pay attention to detail. Complete your pre-shot routine. Once you are ready, concentrate, visualize your shot; waggle your club to take the tension out of your arms. Start your back swing take the club back low and in line with the target, do not start to pick the club up until it is pasted your right foot. (Head still eyes on the ball.) Complete your upper body- turn. Your wrists will hinge as you lift your arms and turn. At the very top of your swing you club must be level and point at the target. Your upper body starts to turn back, pull down with a straight left arm. Do not force the shot, nice easy natural swing eyes still on the ball, (Do not cast the club out) your club must return on the same path in line with the target at impact, follow through –hit right through the ball.  Your divit should be just in front of where the ball was at impact.  

If you hit behind the ball it will cost you distance.

If you are just learning golf, it may still be too early for you to venture onto the golf course, assuming you now have a set of clubs and shoes we suggest a trip to your local driving range. Go when it is not busy; allow yourself plenty of time, no rush. If there are some good players there, spend time watching how they set up and how they swing.

When you are ready get your bucket of balls, find a tee box on your own.  

Have your Hand Book of Golf with you then you can read and refresh your memory. We hope that you have already practised your set up, stance and grip. Now it starts to get exciting. Be confident but do not expect too much, because it takes a time to develop your natural swing, once you do and you can practice with a consistent swing muscle memory will come into play and then your swing will be natural.

(Which is the main reason to learn the correct mechanics from the start it is hard to correct bad habits later)

 

OK now take your seven iron tee up a ball on a low tee.

Follow the aforementioned instructions, and then take your swing. (Do NOT look up until after the ball is the air) Practice with the seven iron until you can consistently hit the ball straight. If the ball is going right that is a slice, if the ball is going left it is a hook. By checking and readjusting, you should be able to correct the problem. If not then you can go to our top tips or contact your on line coach..

Do not try your driver or fairway metals until you master your irons

You need to know the exact distances you can achieve with each club.

Hit a great shot with the wrong club and you end up short or way over the green.

You will need to make your chart so you are sure of the average distance you play with each club.

Next practice session take five balls with each club full swing and record the average distance with each club off the tee refer to the scorecard distance to the green.

If you have not played the course before it pays to purchase from the clubhouse the course planner.

Always check the course markers they will show you 150 yards from the green – 100 yards from the green.

Take time to think, Chose the where the ball needs to land and how much it will roll.

Always think positive- Ball in the hole

The table below gives you the average distance the average player will hit with each club.

Examples: yardages. (Average club player)

 

Check and record your own yard -age the best way to do this is on the practise range. Take the club and play five shots they same swing with the same timing and tempo Total the distance for the five shots - divide by 5 and that is your distance for that club.  

 

Woods ? they are in fact metal now - and some time called recovery clubs

 

 

Driver 220 to 240 yards Average Player

 

3 wood/ metal 200 yards

 

5 wood/metal  175 yards

 

7 wood/metal  160 yards

 

3 Iron 175  yards  Not many players carry a 3 Iron now they prefer a recovery club.     

 

4 Iron 165 yards

 

5 Iron 155 yards

 

6 Iron 145 yards

 

7 Iron 135 yards

 

8 Iron 125 yards

 

9 Iron 110 yards

 

P wedge 100 yards

 

S wedge   70 yards  - When playing a high shot from the grass ( Not from the sand Bunkers )

 

YOU MUST KEEP YOUR SWING CONSISTENT the same speed timing and tempo for every shot develop a repeat swing is the key to top class golf.

Once you achieve that level of golf you just select the club with the correct loft and distance. You will be on target every time.

The key element on developing a consistent game is attention to detail, for example ball position at address. With the driver it is in line with your left heel, as the number of your club gets higher the further back in you stance the ball, with your five iron the ball is in the centre of your stance

With you driver it is level with your left heel. With your wedge, it is level with your right heel. (Get the principle 10 clubs 5 iron centre. High numbers move to the right low number move to the left e.g. towards the front of your stance.)

Your pre-shot routine, you must practice until it is second nature. Determine your optimum target area, and the correct distance from the tee. Taking into account all these factors hazards, water, bunkers, trees, heavy rough, out of bounds. Wind direction from behind, wind against, swirling. Is the fairway narrow or wide? Does it dog leg right or left? Where are the Fairway Bunkers?

 

Next Lesson: Your Pre Shot Routine. A MUST for Every shot.
