In order to improve your golf game it is necessary to put in a lot of effort and hard work. You can spike up the quality of your game by reading these tips carefully and applying them on the course.

Add power to your swing by using your body, not your arms. Lean in to power your shot. Turn with the ball on the downswing. This lets you use the power of all of the muscles in your body to get a better shot, instead of being limited to just your arm muscles.

Wiggling your toes while getting ready to swing will tell you if your posture is correct. If you can do this without difficulty, you are probably leaning too far back from the ball. Try leaning toward the ball so much that you can still move your feet a little, but not a lot.

Are there some tall trees with thick leaves in your way? Do you want to hit below them? You can easily do this. First, the lower the number the club, the less loft you will get with that club. Secondly, if you close your club face you will decrease the angle and the loft. Careful though! Closing your club face can also cause you to slice the ball.

Green fees can sometime be ridiculous. Worse off, many old stodgy, expensive courses are no better than the cheaper courses. Look on golfing sites and check the star ratings on Google before you venture out to any golf course. Most courses that are over 3.5 stars will be thoroughly enjoyable.

In order to improve your golf swing, you may want to consider practicing your swing in front of the mirror. You will be able to see what you are doing wrong and try to work on improving. You may also want to practice in front of a friend who can give you tips.

To get better at putting make sure to keep a soft tension free grip on the putter. You want to be free and relaxed. If you are tense, it is highly unlikely you will be able to make a high pressure putt, and very likely you will end up hitting the ball too hard.

Fix your backswing. In order to start the downswing step down on your left heel, and allow your left hip to move towards the target. When your lower body moves, your hands should move down with your right elbow kept close to your right hip for the maximum time possible.

Balance is the foundation of golf and you have to make sure you can stand on your own two feet without feeling uncomfortable or shaky. Golfing involves being able to balance with a club and also to steady your hand. It also requires good hand eye coordination. So learn to balance first and all the rest will come naturally.

Golf is a popular, world-wide, recreational activity. Most players remain amateurs, and you will have to work hard if you wish to master this game. Use the advice here, and you will see improvements in your golf game.
