At Golf With Luck, we do our best to provide detailed information and golf tips straight from a PGA professional (Tommy) and an amateur golf lover (Melissa). This post contains a roundup of the best golf resources throughout our blog.
1. Golf Grips
Make sure you are using the right grips for each of your golf clubs. Sometimes the grip that comes with the clubs will be the right fit but more often, you’ll want to invest in new golf grips for every club.
2. Alignment Sticks
If you don’t own them already, you should always have alignment sticks in your golf bag when headed to the driving range or before a round. They are one of the most simple and effective ways to practice your golf swing.
3. Training Aids
There are many different types of golf trainings aids out there on the market. Familiarize yourself with how each of them can help your golf game.
Training aids are a great way to elevate your practice sessions. There are even products specific to parts of your golf game like putting training aids.
4. Golf Etiquette
There’s a lot that goes into how to present yourself at the golf course. Some things have changed over the years but for the most part, there are certain golf habits and etiquette you should always follow.
5. Proper Exercise & Stretching
Golf is a sport, therefore you want to try to have an exercise routine that fits the bill. You don’t need to do anything too strenuous but every little bit helps.
Depending on your playing level, you may want to consider having a list of golf specific exercises to incorporate into your daily life and pre-playing routine.
6. Driving Range Practice
It’s really easy to have unproductive practice at the driving range if you don’t know what to focus on. Make sure you have an intent every time you go to the range – a list of simple driving range drills would be helpful.
Adding onto this, make sure you know the difference between good and bad practice. We wrote all about it in this article: how to practice your golf game the right way.
A golf rangefinder will help you see how far you are from the hole out on the course. Once you’re comfortable with your golf club distances, having a rangefinder will elevate your game that much more by pinpointing exact yardages, not just a ballpark average.
8. Essential Equipment
There are a few essential pieces of equipment that you’ll need when starting to play golf. Deciding on new golf clubs is at the top of this list.
