Consistency is the Key

The hardest part of golf is consistency. It is not possible for any human to hit a golf ball perfectly 100% of the time. That includes Tiger Woods. However, what very goof golfers is consistently hit the ball very well the majority of the time. They hit it nearly perfect quite a lot of time.

What sets them apart is consistency. Even those at the top of their game have days they don’t get their shots right too many times. Golfers can only get that consistency is through practice. This is the only thing that can really help.

Consistently bad shots are another matter that needs to be addressed. This is the major matter when it comes to gold consistency.  To make something a natural behavior you must do it consistently.

The also applies to poor technique.  Address poor golf techniques as soon as possible.  The sooner you start working on them the sooner you will be able to practice the correct methods. Then you can start making the new actions second nature.

The best thing is for everyone to get professional instruction before ever attempting to play a round of golf.  That way they won’t learn bad techniques and need to relearn them at a later time.

I would recommend before ever attempting a round of golf newcomers have lessons. Learning how to use one club well is an alternative to lessons.  You probably want to learn how to play with the 7 iron. Play the entire round or nine holes using just the 7 iron and a putter.

One player I knew I knew make dramatic improvements to his game by using this technique

This happened after he had been playing for years. He began playing golf with only the 7 iron and his putter. Once he perfected his swing, he introduced other clubs one at a time.  Once he perfected his swing with the 7 iron he went on to master the other club with ease.

In previous decades, golf was considered as a game where only men had an interest in participating. Now, the times have changed and many women golfers are interested in playing the game. In the field of golf for women, several advancements have been made.

There are women professional golfers who are passionate about golfing just like their male counterparts. Women golf gained so much popularity when Annika Sorenstam was ready to play against men in a PGA tournament.

There were both positive and negative waves about the issue, but on the whole, this increased the popularity of women’s golf.

Now, several women golfers were found to decorate the front pages of golf magazines. Golf accessories manufacturers have also taken efforts to design golfing equipments that suit women players. You can get customized golfing kit that is specially designed for women.

Though only a few steps are taken to welcome women in the world of golf, this is a positive change. Women are treated as equally as possible on the golf course.

The ratio of women and men participating in golf is 1:3 and this ratio is expected to rise in the upcoming years. When it comes to game play, women are mentally strong and passionate to play golf, just as men are.

Dedication and involvement in the game is great when it comes to women players. However, the physical demand of the game is what is restraining the number of women players.

Golf requires lot of stamina and practice to play a good game. Traditional golf techniques can be deployed only by those who have a strong body.

The new EFT technique is a non traditional playing technique used in golf. Men are more concentrated on specializing in traditional techniques and hence, EFT is popular mostly among women.

The new technique enables the player to learn to play some good shots in a short span of time. The kind of technique is least important compared to the quality of shots on the course.

The ladies professional golf association, LPGA is responsible for organizing golf tournaments for ladies. The tournaments are conducted separately for women where only women compete against each other. When the association was first formed, no-one expected that this would become famous.

Now, you can find several women golf clubs that take serious steps to train women golfers. Several professional women golfers have written books on tips and training essential for a woman to play golf.

If you are a women golfer interested in playing golf, you have to take steps to improve your game. A number of women golf magazines are found in the market and the subscriptions definitely cost money because golf is not an easy game.

If you are not interested in spending on these subscriptions, you can take advantage of the online magazines that concentrate on women golfers.
