You don’t want to purchase “any old” golf ranger finders. You will want to purchase those devices which are top of the line and integrate PinSeeker Technology into the mix. Why buy any device that is anything less than the best range finder on the market? Some might mention that the price of the rangefinder might be the impediment.

3 Tips For Finding Golf Balls In The Rough

Smacking a tee shot or a fairway iron into the rough is a relatively common occurrence for most recreational golfers. Landing a ball a few yards off of the fairway typically isn’t a big deal unless you are unable to find it, which can lead to dreaded penalty strokes and a need to fork over cash for new spheres. Losing balls on the course can be embarrassing, expensive and time-consuming and can easily ruin whatever rhythm or focus you were carrying throughout your round.

Golf Stretching For A Better Swing

If you’re a golfer over 50, you need to read this article. I want to ingrain this statement in your brain. “Golf stretching for a better swing”. Now repeat that a couple of times, and let it sink in. I’ll make a bold statement that nearly all the golfers that are 50 years or older have range of motion issues in their golf swing. This can really inhibit your ability to make a full backswing. Not making a full shoulder turn robs you of distance. And, it can also cause all kinds of swing faults.

Bunker Shots And Impact

Fault: When playing bunker shots I see players trying to ensure that their hands lead the swing like when chipping. I’ve even seen some golfers position the ball behind their back foot.

As if there is some long, lost secret that they are going to uncover. I am sorry to say, there is no secret. There are several things you can do, to ensure you have a good chance of hitting longer shots, but there is no guarantee.

Golf Setup

All golfers have their own rituals prior to making the swing. These rituals on setup are important in as much as they establish consistency in performance. The logic here is that since you setup the same way every time, you train yourself to develop the right position, posture, etc. that really work. In addition, you also become less affected by external influences like the wind, temperature, crowd noise, jibes from fellow players, equipment, among many others. If you setup with things that you’re used to, everything else will follow.

Putting Tips – Improve Your Putting Now!

One of the challenges in golf is mastery of putting. This routine is often touted as a game inside a game in as much as a lot of skills needed are different from those needed in the rest of the game. It is very important to be a brilliant putter since most of the shots-often nearly 50 percent-come from putting.

Golf Back Swing

A lot of golfers make the mistake of letting their left knee collapse to the right during their golf back swing. Little do they know that this pulls the shoulder down and makes the hips sway and misaligned. The solution to this is to think of the left knees as going out toward the ball during backswing. There should be a feeling of tension and stability in both knees. One activity that golf instructors do to teach this is to make their students hold a basketball between the knees.
