Know the game of golf, and then learn to play, Golf an outdoor game; the course is about 7000 yards divided into sections called holes. Individual holes may vary in length from 100 to 600 yards; each hole begins at the tee and ends at the hole, to complete the hole the golf ball must be propelled into the hole. The object of the game is to advance the ball around the course using as few strokes as possible From the tee each player tries to drive the ball onto the fairway, a carefully tended strip of land, the fairway is short grass, on either side there will be rough areas of long grass, bushes, or trees. Also hazards natural and man made, including sand-filled bunkers, water hazards lakes, and ponds. At the far end of the fairway is the putting green, the grass short and smooth, not necessarily flat most greens have contours, down hill and up hill slopes to the hole, the short grass is smooth like a snooker table and will permit the ball to roll easily after it has been given a gentle stroke know as a putt. Golf Strokes and Golf Clubs: main shots. Drive: Which hopefully is a long shot from the tee? The approach shot: Played from the fair way towards the green, a number of different clubs can be used long Irons, fairway woods. Once within 100yds of the green it becomes a pitch or a chip shot, normally played with a pitching wedge. Normal set of 14 golf clubs: Are divided into those know as woods, (do not be confused) they will now large heads made of metal, titanium, and those know as irons with heads made of steel. The shafts can be made of steel or graphite. Woods are numbered 1 to 5, irons in the bag normally 3 to 9 plus your specialized clubs pitching wedge, sand wedge, and putter. (Another strange thing: The clubs with the low numbers 1-2-3 are used for driving the ball 200 yards+ the higher the number the less distance you will hit. Why? It is all about loft your driver will be 10 degree loft your sand wedge will be 56 degree loft) All will be explained in the lesson number 2. (What is in the bag .)
You must always be positive no negative thoughts, be confident and in control. One of the golden rules we will teach you will be to trust your clubs. Forms of Competition: Match play: This is played hole by hole, the player taking the least number of stokes between tee and hole wins the hole. The one who wins the most holes wins *once handicaps have been taken into account. Stroke play: You need to play consistent golf over the course the winner is the player taking the fewest stokes over the full 18 holes. Again once handicaps have been taken into account The term par: Refers to the number of strokes the pro-golf would normally expect to use in completing a particular hole. Each hole is measured from Tee- to green, the distance and degree of difficulty will determine the number of stokes you should take in a perfect game. Your score card will show you the distance and degree of difficultly. You will note that the holes which are the 450 yards + will be ranked as par 5 holes, the holes that are up to 400 yards will be par 4, short holes up to 250 yards will be par 3 Also on your score card will be the stoke index, stoke index 1 will be rated as the hardest hole on the course, stoke index 18 being rated as the easiest hole on the course. If you made par on every hole your total score would be a perfect 72 for 18 holes, which is why the most of the top courses are referred to as a par 72 course. (When you can play the course in 72 or less then you are a potential pro-golfer)
General Course information: Par three short holes, it is possible to make a hole in one, with a perfect shot and more than a fair share of luck. Par five holes as we said earlier 450 to 580 yard holes all with varying degrees of difficulty. Tee: Tee it high let it fly – the time it takes to say is the timing for your swing Is the area from which you play the first shot on every hole? A-tee is also the small peg, which you place in the ground
On the Tee area place the ball on top so you get a clean contact with the ball when you drive the ball towards the fairway
Par: The number of golf strokes a pro-player would expect to take on each hole (or better) Bogey: Is one stroke over par Birdie: Is one stroke under par. Eagle: Are two Strokes under par Handicaps are very important, because even if you are playing with a player who is considered to be a very good golfer, his or her handicap will be much lower than yours so he or she has to play to their handicap or better in order to win. For example: If your normal game your score is 100 stokes for the 18 holes your handicap is=
100 – 72 = 28 If their normal game is 80 stokes for 18 holes their handicap will be
80 – 72 = 8. So for them to beat you they would need to beat you by 21 stokes or more We have included sample score cards to help you understand. Scoring in golf is sometimes a mystery to non golfers or those just starting, because golf unlike other sports the golfer with the lowest score wins, (In normal Stoke play) Completive golf is played over 18 holes, if you are a pro golfer you would take 72 shots or lower to complete all 18 holes. That is referred to as a par round. Each hole you start at the tee box, and finish in the hole on the green. Every time you make a stroke, count it. At the end of each hole, add up your strokes for that hole and write it down. At the end of the round, add up the strokes for each hole and, there you have it, your golf score, your then deduct your handicap which gives you your net score Score in relation to par is also very easy to understand and you know how well you are playing by the number of shots taken on each hole. When things go wrong out of bounds etc (you will have to take a penalty stroke.) On your score card each hole is given a number representing “par” – the number of strokes it should take a pro golfer to finish that hole. If the hole is a par is 4 and you take 5 shots, then your score in relation to par is 1-over. E.g. a bogey If the par is 4 and you only take 3 shots, then your score in relation to par is 1-under. E.g. a birdie If par for the course is 72 and you finished with a 95, then your score is 23-over = to a handicap of 23. The handicap system: With the handicap system, you can play any other golfer on any course and be competitive. For example if your average score is 95, (Handicap 23) and you play a golfer that has an average score of 76, (Handicap 4) in simple terms if you take 95 shots, and he takes 77 you win. In order to play on the prestigious international courses you will need an official handicap, when you become club member, you can hand in three score cards, the average of the three scores will be your handicap. Once you play with a handicap of 18 or below you will be permitted to play on any course, including international clubs. Reason the club insist on you showing your handicap cards : To ensure you can play a full round in 4 hours or under, also you will comply with golf etiquette, correct code of dress, will not endanger other players, and for the hard working grounds men take care of the course. You will replace divots, repair pitch mark on the greens. Score card. (Assume normal tees not competition tees) You will note that Player 1 won the game with a net 73. 101 – (28) =73 The words “out” and “in” appear on most golf scorecards, alongside the par for the front nine and back nine. Why are these terms used, and what do they mean? What they mean is fairly self-evident. “Out” and “in” on the scorecard refer to the golfer’s front and back nines, respectively. The yardage of any given golf hole is on the scorecard and also shown on a sign at the tee. The yardage is also marked at various points on the side of the fairways- for example, from 200 yards out (from the green), 150 yards out, and 100 yards out. Many courses also put yardages on sprinkler heads and other objects found in the fairway. These yardages are to the center of the greens. Golf is not easy to master; many club players will never play well because they have not learnt the correct mechanics, only a few players are born with true natural ability. Even the lucky few still need to know the mechanics of the game. All have pre-shot routines, have developed and natural swing. Paramount to every thing else: Smooth swing, good balance, rhythm and timing, correct transfer of weight. Select the correct club.
In the lessons to follow we will teach you all different ways of playing and scoring. One of the many golden rules you will learn on this course: Golf is a mind game: Just one of the key objectives we will teach you. Once you have learnt the basics, you then need to develop the correct mind set. Mind Game: Golden Rule: During your pre-shot routine you learn to visualize the shot, in your mind you can see the target area; you see the flight path of the ball (trajectory) NO negative thoughts. Stand over the shot with confidence and be positive. Now all you need to do is trust your swing and your club selection, focus on balance, tempo, and rhythm.
Golfers with a strong mental game realize that the present is all that they can control. (Forget your bad shot) Learn to play in the present without dwelling the bad shots. Realize the power of just being in the moment with the full intention and expectation to play a good shot, once a good player has gone through his pre-shot routine, they address the ball and concentrate for just 10 seconds, once they start the back swing they switch to natural swing the one they use every time for that shot, they play on instinct and trust their subconscious or and muscle memories to make it happen for them. Learning to play in the present on instinct requires time and effort. That is why experience is such a priceless commodity. Because when all else fails, the truth emerges from one’s experiences if you are honest with yourself. By training your mind to play in the present, you can shorten the time required to experience the power of being free to play on instinct and in the zone. Unfortunately, many golfers never learn to stop dwelling on their past and future outcomes. The trick to being in the present is to allow yourself to learn from the feedback each shot provides without your ego being involved in the outcome. By being honest about your present mechanical, strategic, physical and mental limitations, you will increase your awareness of what you can do to improve your present abilities. Then, it becomes a question of how strong your desire is to make the necessary changes or adjustments to improve. Only the lucky few are born with natural feel, balance, tempo, even they need to know the correct mechanics of golf and practice for hours to perfect a smooth repeatable swing.
Most high handicap players have two common faults; they swing too hard and look up before impact One last comment: I wish you luck and enjoyment in every game you play.
