Play The Right Hand
Ideally, what you want is to neutralize either your slicing or hooking tendencies by balancing out the pressure in your right hand, which closes the face, and the left hand, which tends to open the face. If you slice, your right hand probably isn't doing its job correctly and it's gripping the club too lightly.
Hitting better iron shots is key if you want to shoot lower scores. It's really the great equalizer if you will—the link from the tee box to the green. If you hit great drives and are putting well, it's not going to matter if you keep hitting substandard iron shots. So let's look at a few positions in the golf swing you should pay attention to so you can start hitting better shots from the fairway.
5 Ways To Putt
Eighty-five percent of the information people take in is visual. That is,what we see is most of what we know. Consider the last movie you saw. I bet you remember more of what you saw than the dialogue you heard. The same goes for golf. What you see on the golf course is often what you get. (If you’ve ever fixated on a water hazard only to hit your ball in it, you know what I mean.)
Five Strategies For Lower Scores
There’s little doubt that proper swing fundamentals and short-game techniques are important parts of a consistent golf game. Good golf, however, isn’t purely about perfect mechanics; it’s also largely about strategy. Fortunately, there are several key strategies anyone can easily utilize to produce lower scores. Better yet, using your smarts is a lot easier than trying to create a fundamentally perfect backswing or impact position. In this regard, the title of this story holds true—you can score better without changing your swing.
Ever wonder what causes a slice to curve? Either your hands don’t rotate enough and you hit the ball with an open face, or you have an out-to-inside swing path. When either of those things happen, the clubhead then applies a mixture of backspin and sidespin to the ball, resulting in a big curve to the right.
