Tee Shot



"Over the top" or "In the slot": Golf Lesson by Herman Williams, PGA





Keep pace with the group ahead of you. Do not waste too much time looking for a lost ball. If you want to keep to the five minutes allowed, wave groups behind you ahead so you will not hold them up. Golf can be a fun, relaxing way to spend a morning, afternoon or even a full day. You can enjoy that time either alone or with a group of friends or coworkers. 

Don t Be Intimidated By Those You Are Playing Against To be your best at the game you must never allow the people you are playing against to intimidate you . No matter how good they are, don t let their track records intimidate you, if you do you will lose focus. Make sure your focus is on the game, playing your best and not at your opponents what they have done in the past. 

If you don t believe in yourself you won t be able to overcome the challenges that come your way easily and you will be intimidated by other people s success. In golf, the same applies, you need to believe in yourself, believe you can master the game and compete with the best of the best. If you believe it you can achieve it. 

Tiger started playing golf at a very young age, he learnt and perfected the basics and today he is reaping the benefits. Learning and perfecting the basics helps you to really know the game and be a great player. The secret of success in life in any endeavor lies in the simple and basic things. Success in Business, for example, is all about providing what people need when they need it. 

In fact, my research has shown that it is actually recommended for beginner golfers to start out with a short set. It is recommended to have a 3-wood, 3-iron, 5-iron, 7-iron, 9-iron and a putter. You can always fill in the missing clubs later once you start to get better, learn your yardage more and become more schooled on the physics of clubs. 

It may help to mention at this point, that the two large golf organizations that take care of the establishment and enforcement of the rules are the United States Golf Association (USGA) and The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of Saint Andrews (R&A). Both these bodies carry the flag of fairness in the rules.
