Me And My Hybrid Golf Clubs



Hybrid Golf Clubs

Hybrid Golf Clubs

I started playing golf seriously about 5 years ago. Over the past several years I played around with those mens golf clubs that my wife had bought me. I only went to the driving range a few times throughout an average golf season. Well this past year I might have gone to the driving range about thirty to forty times. I have actually developed a pretty good swing actually. I felt the awkwardness of the golf swing had finally been accepted by my body. It is such a different movement than most other sports and such a slow movement too. Oh well, maybe it was just the effect of my new hybrid gold clubs. I played on a course about 5 times during the season which is the most I have ever played throughout any season.

By the way I live in Ontario, Canada. Our season isn’t very long. So it seems by the time I started to progress noticeably the snow started to fall and the golf clubs got stored away. I miss that moment of peace just me and my hybrid golf clubs. Smelling the fresh grass and feeling the warmth of the sun on my face. And I miss going out with some of my buddies for a couple of hours. Chatting and hitting the ball around, talking about what is new in our lives. It would be just us and the golf clubs and a beautiful day, all of the worries far, far, away.

So just what is it about golf that attracts so many men? What posses them to get up at six in the morning to hit a white ball around? One thing about golf is it is more than just lugging around a set of mens golf clubs and hitting a ball from time to time. It has a lot to do with spending the day with your buddies. Most sports there are too many things going on to be able to interact with each other, but with golf you can. Golf is a slow paced sport so there is plenty of time to talk while you are waiting or walking to the next tee. With golf most of the time you are standing waiting with your golf clubs. Or walking to the next hole dragging your golf clubs with you everywhere you go. Definitely with golf you are getting some good exercise to go with the good conversation.

A lot of men would complain about their wives being mad at them for playing golf. I guess the wives don’t like the money spent on hybrid golf clubs, the green fees, or even the many hours that are spent playing it. But recently there have been quite a noticeable amount of women taking up the sport. Will the men be happy with this new change? For that, we will have to wait and see.

Bulletproof Ways To Improve Your Golf Swing!



Improving Your Golf Swing

Improving Your Golf Swing

Are you seeing the same decrease in your handicap that reflects your hard work and efforts? Do you consistently fall short on your drives or feel exhausted at the end of 18 holes? Do you carry the disappointment of a missed putt over into the next hole? If you are plagued with problems like these then it is time to give your golf game a boost. Change your golf game for the better by focusing on the following five areas: flexibility, strength, endurance, nutrition, and mental toughness.

Flexibility:

Have you ever rushed to the golf course, quickly stepped up to the tee and felt stiff when you swung your golf club? Warming up your muscles can help relieve stiffness, but it is better to be more proactive in your approach. Therefore, it is essential to stretch on a regular basis. This allows you to increase and maintain your flexibility. You only need a small investment of your time in order to see significant gains in your range of motion.

Strength:

Have you incorporated strength training into your exercise routine? Many golfers are tempted to swing as hard as possible when hitting the golf ball. There are several adverse side effects of doing this. Your muscles may not be physically prepared for the intense strain and you may become injured. Increasing strength will enable your body to tackle the demands of the golf swing and prepare it for the action ahead.

Endurance:

Do you lose your intensity or feel tired after a few holes? If so, then focus on your endurance. At first glance, golf may not appear to be a game in which aerobic fitness is necessary. However, golfers that walk the course can walk nearly five miles over the course of 18 holes. Try to work in 20-45 minutes, 3-5 days per week of cardiovascular activity.

Nutrition:

Your body needs the proper fuel to work efficiently. Common sense dictates that loading up on junk food is a bad idea. So what exactly should you eat? An optimal sports nutrition menu plan will include high quality carbohydrates, lean protein, fruits, vegetables, and plenty of water.

Mental Toughness:

Are you still thinking about the drive you sliced on the first hole as you set up to tee off at the second hole? This negative thought pattern will adversely affect your game. How you perceive the situation affects each shot. One way to increase your mental toughness is not to relive missed shots. Visualize a good shot to help erase the missed shot from your mind.

Take these five facts into account and you’ll likely see better results with your game. It will take some time to make these activities a habit, but will be well worth the effort.

How To Further Improve Your Golf Swing



Further Improve Your Golf Swing

Further Improve Your Golf Swing

Do you have a favorite golf player? Is it Tiger Woods or Ernie Els? Have you ever thought that your swing looks like theirs? Woods and Els are two great golf players. When you watch them play, you will definitely notice their graceful and powerful swings. Honestly, it is difficult to imitate that just by watching.

Having a good swing needs constant practice. Also, your body needs to be well tuned up for it to perform well. Exotic Golf Clubs offers you some basic tips to help you improve your golf swing and may help you shoot in the 90s or even 80s.

1. Warm up. Just like any other game or sport, golf players need a little warming up before starting a round. This is what most players, especially amateurs, often take for granted.

It is best to come early at the golf course and take a few minutes to stretch those muscles and warm up. This will make your muscles “know” that they are in for something and that they should be prepared. Taking a few swings in the driving range will also help you get tuned up and perform better.

2. Exercise. This is really important, not only for golf. Constantly exercising your body and muscles will keep them toned and ready for any activity. This will also prevent common body aches and pains that you usually feel when playing golf.

Getting into the habit of exercising, especially tuning up your muscles will have a great impact on your swing. It will help you have a good stance and increase total balance and control on your swings.

3. Do not swing too hard yet. It is really tempting to give your swing that extra effort. However, it is not recommended unless you already have the control of your swing. The key to a powerful and graceful swing is the balance and control that you have, add to it the proper form and stance.

So how do you get to learn to control your swing? Again, it’s tip number 2. Regular exercise will, in time, allow you to have a faster, more controlled swing.

Aside from these simple steps to do, it is also best to ask help from the pros, personally or thru online methods. They can give good advices as they already have learned a lot from their experiences. Keeping updated with the latest about golf will also help.

Also, most players tend to be so conscious in their desire to improve their swing that their minds are focused on every aspect of the swing itself; doing that will only make your swing look awkward. Instead, it is best to keep your mind off your swing. Try to focus on something else and the good swing will just follow.

Try to do these things when you play golf again. And do these regularly, then notice the change it will make on your next golf swing.
