#82 Web TV: Here’s A Tip To Play Better Golf

Here is a simple tip to play better golf.

If you want to play better golf you need to be focusingΒ on the most important thing in golf.

But what could that particular thing be?

Could it be…

  • your grip?
  • your set up?
  • the way you make contact with the ball?
  • good feet position?
  • good technique?

There is so much to think about right?

So the thing I want you to concentrate on right now… is only one particular thing.

That is making sure the when you are getting set for the ball, and you are ready to hit your shot… that the club is going to make contact with the grass just before you are going to make contact with the ball.

I will explain… how to play better golf with this…

When the bottom of the club (known as the sole) touches the grass… the golf ball then climbs up onto the club face… then the golf ball and then it lifts up into the air.

If however you were to have the bottom of the club face come through and make contact with the golf ball with the leading edge of the club… which means this leading edge hits the centre of the ball or the top of the ball, the ball cannot climb up the club face. That is why the ball shoots off really low. You won’t get any elevation from the ball.

If you were to view the video above… you will see a demonstration hitting the grass with the club just before the ball.

So to play better golf… you need the bottom of the club to hit the grass… the ball then climbs up onto the club face… the golf ball then launches off the club face into the air… all to plan.

This you can do without changing your technique and look forward to play better golf.

    Welcome back! You must have known I was hitting the ball too low today – I’ll concentrate on the grass in front tomorrow as well as committing! Great work ! Robyn

    • Tiffany Mika September 23, 2015 at 5:10 pm #

      Hey Robyn

      Of course I sensed that you were hitting the ball low and I thought I must make this just for you ;). So you motto is grass and commit!

    Welcome back Tiff! Great advice re hitting grass before the ball and the principle behind it. I tend to lift up at the last minute and hit the ball with the bottom of the club.. Practice practice I guess πŸ™‚

    • Tiffany Mika September 23, 2015 at 5:08 pm #

      Hey Shelly

      Thanks! Yes it is one of the most important things you must be doing. The longer you stay down through your shot the better.

      Always practice the right things!

    Hi Tiffany,
    So, so glad to hear you are back .
    My husband & I played golf today on Hamilton Island & I could have used your wise words this morning.
    So, i shall take all your information to task & keep practising.
    Keep the tips coming

    • Tiffany Mika September 25, 2015 at 9:27 am #

      Hi Stephanie..

      Thanks it’s good to be back!

      I hope Hamilton Island was good weather for you… just keep practicing.

      Tiff πŸ˜‰

  14. Dave O"Neill, VT September 24, 2015 at 2:54 am #

    Great tip Tiff. Nice to hear from you again! Yes, hitting the grass first with your practice swing helps to know your swing arc is low enough for good contact. I have found recently that taking the club back in one piece for 14 or so inches really helps to ensure a good backswing and square ball contact on the follow through. When I get sloppy at the beginning, many things can go wrong! Cheers!

    • Tiffany Mika September 25, 2015 at 9:28 am #

      Hey Dave

      Yes you have got to stick with the basics and the less movement in the takeaway the better the shot will be.

      Keep working on getting the basics right

      Tiff πŸ˜‰

    so sensible, you are the classic proponent of the KISS principle Tiff! Thanks!!

    • Tiffany Mika September 25, 2015 at 9:29 am #

      Hey there Wendy

      Yes that’s me! KISS!

      People can make golf too complex… you have to keep it simple. Then it becomes easier!

      Enjoy πŸ˜‰
