Golfers from different places travel to Arizona golf resorts to enjoy golf and to further improve their golf skills. Apart from playing on various courses to develop your skills, you can take lessons from a good golf coach. However, not all golfers can afford the best golf instructors. That is why Canoa Ranch has compiled some helpful golf tips from the best golf coaches in the world:
On keeping your focus:
“Always stay in the present, concentrating solely on the shot that you are about to play. Forget about any bad shots that have already occurred or shots that you will be facing later in the round.” – Steve Cooper
On improving your swing:
“Making solid contact has a lot to do with the proper swing path. Stick two golf shafts together and put them in the ground where your ball would be. The shafts should be on a 45-degree angle to the ground, parallel to your clubshaft at address, and angled back off your right hip. Practice making slow-motion swings: During the backswing, your club should slide along the top of the shafts; on the downswing, it should come under the shafts, with the hosel hooking around the bottom of the clubs. Once you’ve rehearsed this path five times, step away and use the image as you hit real shots.” – Mike Bender
On the importance of keeping fit:
“To any young player I’d emphasize the importance of working hard both on technique and physique. There are both crucial areas and deserve equal attention from an early age.” – Gary Smith
On generating power for a swing:
“Use your body for power. Every good golfer knows that power comes from the body, not the arms.”- Braddy Riggs
“We don’t often have our ‘A’ games, so we must play with the game we have. Aim for the biggest bits of the fairways and greens – always away from the trouble spots. Hit to where you can see is safe and think a shot ahead – make sure you next shot isn’t from water, rough or a bunker.” – Andrew Reynolds
Remember these words on your next visit at a golf course and see if they have an impact on your game.
