Parent page: Learning Golf
Golf has been around since 1497 and originated in Scotland during the 15th century. During this time, a pebble was used as the golf ball. The golf ball was not thought of until the 19th century. In the United States, over 20 million people play golf. Whether you’re the best such as Rory McIlroy or Michelle Wie, it’s good to start with the basics.
The Tools for Success
There are many different golf clubs you can join, but you should focus on choosing your tool of choice. If you’re left-handed, finding golf clubs which suit you can be a challenge. Right-handed clubs are far more common, which is why many left-handed golfers play with their right hand. The internet is your best friend when it comes to finding the perfect set of clubs. Did you know that over 10 per cent of the world’s population is made up of left-handed people?
Do you have family members who play golf? If so, how long have they been playing? You may want to let your family members who play golf give you instructions. Following instruction are important for mastering the basics of golf. Once you learn the basics, you can customise a style which works best for you. Being left-handed is not the end of the world, but learning to play golf can be a challenge at times. Always remember that playing golf with your left hand is a mirror image of playing with the right hand.
Make Use of Second-Hand Items
As a beginner, your golf game probably won’t reach Tiger Wood’s status, and that’s okay. It’s best to use second-hand items until you get your golf game where you want it. Second-hand items are less expensive than new equipment, and they are gently used.
It’s all fun and games. Let go and enjoy yourself. Learn all you can and give it your best shot. You may be surprised at your accomplishments.
