Before you swing the golf club "� take time to line up! Aligning yourself for your shot is easy enough to do when you focus on a high and low object to set your line. Focus on something in the
distance, not the flag, that is in the direction you need to swing based off wind and other factors. Following that line back to you, find something on the ground in front of you to focus on for the
low. Doing this takes your focus off the flag since it is not usually the target you are aiming for directly.
There are many ways to putt a golf ball, but for the beginner golfer the most simple way to remember proper putting is the word "center". All puts should originate from the center of the putter while
you are still learning. Once you become more experienced, you can begin to learn about zones of the putter and how that will affect your shot.
If you want to lower your score with a little psychological trick, use golf balls in a color that matches the flag. Somehow, for some people at least, this physical color match can make it easier to
get the ball closer to the hole!
