This is a common question of all beginners in this sport. So, in this article we want to share some opinions about what is the best way to learn golf. And then, hope you will determine the method you are going to choose for your golf studying by yourself.
Firstly, if you want to study with a golf teacher, typically you will be instructed the lessons of about 8 different positions to take a swing. Not only tell about the positions, there are about dozen standard lessons you must learn in a course. But, as likely as not until the course ends, you still can’t take through all these positions. And those positions are just the reference aim points for you to come closer but you never have the chance to that you aim to get close to but you will never fully achieve these ideal positions. In general, the teachers will often start their basic lessons on posture, grip, stance, and so on. After that, you will be allowed to play golf as an exercise and then, back to the lessons one more time to reduce your disadvantages and improve the total gradually. The quick way to enhance your points is to practice on the putting and brief game.
Secondly, you can learn through video or website. Nowadays there are the video lessons that teach you how a professional golfer plays, and viewing this can helps you identify what you are doing inexactly, then they will also show you how to correct your mistakes. By this way, you just learn what you need. For example, you should focus on the swing which is a part essential, can’t be lacked of this sport, and occupying about 20% of it. And because in golf, you must play over the distance, one swing is just full when it eats up almost that distance. But remember that a swing is not all things in golf sport. You study golf but not only study how to do golf swing. The swing is only the needed step to become an amateur golfer of a beginner, so what score you can get also belongs to the remaining of the golf game and one key thing: your brain. That is the reason why you need to study to play golf.
Thirdly, although you only learn alone, you have to look for a partner (a mate in golf class or your fellow or even your teacher) for trying competing with his or her. It is one step every golfer should do.
Finally, regardless you choose what method of learning golf, success or failure depends on your attempts. Remember that in any sports including golf, practicing is very important. Moreover, the aspect about the mental side really also needs to be cared. If you always stand between the course and are nervous about how to control your weight or where the proper elbow to take a swing, you can’t get anything. Let’s take all the clubs in your bag and go to the golf field, take up the course, play and keep playing, even when you do an ugly shot, identify the reason of this fault and continue to play again.
