As any golfer knows, the quest to perfect your game is a never ending journey that can be the most frustrating and satisfying part of the sport. There’s always room for improvement and there’s always new ways to help with everything from swing style to mentality along with new equipment and new technology to assist all aspects of your game.
We’re not saying that we have all the answers to getting your game perfect but here’s some tips and pointers on what you can do to help things along.
1. Have Goals To Work Towards
If you’re looking to improve your golf game then first of all decide what you want to achieve. Don’t try and do everything all at once, instead identify what parts of your game you want to work on and set targets for improvement.
That way you can see actual progression and achievement and once you get there you can set new targets. And don’t just think long term, you can have both short term and long term goals that you can work towards.
2. Get Fitted
Having the right equipment can really help with your game. Knowing what works for you, what compliments your style and technique and getting fitted for proper golf clubs can enhance your swing.
Our in-house Club Class Golf Repairs can help with identifying everything from grip size, shaft length and flex on your clubs or when you’re looking to buy new ones. We’ll look at your swing technique, playing style and then get your measurements to determine the right golf clubs for you.
3. Develop Your Swing
It’s easy to just think that your swing is your swing. There’s no deviation from it, that’s what you do. But you can try and develop a new swing that might just be a better option. It’s always worth trying new techniques because it might just uncover something that you never knew you could do.
Our golf pros offer lessons and work with golfers every day on things like this and it could just be the answer to the problem you didn’t know you had.
4. Work On Your Fitness
We all know, a round of golf can be tiring by the time you get to the 18th hole. And with tiredness comes a drop in technique and standards falling. To counter this, you’ll need to work on your fitness and improve your stamina.
It’s an often overlooked part of the game but it can make all the difference especially as you get to the latter holes on a round of golf. Start by simply walking more and building up that way but you can also look at building up your strength too. This will help to add power to your drive and improve accuracy too.
Our personal training service at the CustomFit Gym can help with this but it’s not just your golf that will benefit, it’s great for your overall health and wellbeing too.
It might be obvious but one of the best ways to improve your game is to practice, practice and practice some more. There’s nothing like playing a round of golf to perfect your game but the Driving Range is a close second.
To keep that technique going and stop getting rusty keep playing and practising whenever you can.
So, improving your game is something that we can all do. It just takes some planning, hard work and some dedication. But most of all, make sure you enjoy it. It shouldn’t be a chore to improve your game and if you take advantage of all the facilities and services we have here at Four Ashes Golf Centre, you can always enjoy a refreshment or two in the café/bar afterwards.
