Keep Your Head Down and Use Your Torso
A common rookie mistake is looking up too early to follow the ball down the fairway with your eyes. Focus on completing your follow-through and your swing before looking up to see where the ball heads, or else all your alignments and visual calculations will go to waste. Keep your eyes down and focus on the swing before moving your head anywhere else. Also, make sure to always use your torso when swinging, not just your arms. Rotate your shoulder all the way around to your other foot to generate enough momentum, and have the power of the swing come from your torso. Having that strong rotation will give your ball the extra oomph to make that shot.
While golf may seem like a low energy sport, it can surprisingly take a lot out of you. In fact, research has shown that a golfer walks about 6.5 miles during a round, which equates to a lot of calories burnt and energy used. For this reason you should make sure to fuel up beforehand and stay hydrated throughout. Visit our on-site restaurant, Sandtrap Bar and Grill, to fuel up on a nutritious meal before your game. If extreme fatigue or hunger set in, your performance will likely be impacted.
Just like with anything else, there’s tons of technology these days that can help you brush up on your golf game. There are apps that help you analyze your stats and track your improvement, one of which being Golfshot. With this app, a player can keep digital scorecards, send invites to their friends and receive helpful statistics and insights. Do some research on what apps have features that you think would benefit your game personally.
