Some people make New Year’s resolutions—and some refuse. Whatever side of the fence you’re on, golfers can always look at the year ahead and put some thought around what they’d like their game to achieve.
After all, what golfer doesn’t like thinking about golf?
Here at LostGolfBalls, we get questions. Lots of questions. (Keep ‘em coming.) Figuring that the questions we get most might figure into more than a few 2015 golf resolutions, we’ve put together a few tips.
Improve Your Swing
Whether you’re trying to get more distance or you need to correct that hook or slice, the driving range is the place to improve your skills.
Yet getting out there isn’t enough.
You’ll get the best improvement to your swing by following driving range best practices, such as rotating targets between shots instead of aiming at the same one ten times in a row. And make it out to the range once a month or even once a week.
Practice makes perfect!
Find the Best Golf Ball for Your Style
In golf, equipment matters. And not all equipment is right for all players.
Have you thought about which golf ball is best for you? Different balls are great for different players. Whether you’re a fierce competitor on the green or a golfer who’s just interested in a casual game with friends, using the right golf ball will give you an extra push in the right direction.
Get in Prime Golf Shape
If you’ve already resolved to get into better shape this year, consider an improved golf game extra motivation.
There are several exercises you can do to stay in shape for golf. They aren’t too intense and most of them do not require special equipment—meaning golfers of all fitness levels should be able to get them done in almost any setting. Incorporate some (or all!) of these exercises into your daily routine and you’ll be swinging like a pro.
Practice Good Golf Etiquette
Golf is a sport of traditions and rules—both of which play into how you comport yourself on the course.
To ensure everyone has a good golf experience, brush up on your golf etiquette. Some of these best practices are easy to forget; and while we wouldn’t blame you for spending twenty minutes looking for that lost ball (we’ll find it later if you don’t!), the group playing behind you might not be so understanding.
A quick etiquette recap will help you have great games for the whole year—and who doesn’t want that?
Ready, Set… Go!
Make 2015 the year that you achieve your golf goals. With a little thought and effort, you can hit your resolution targets.
And, of course, don’t forget to start the New Year right with a new set of balls from Lost Golf Balls.
