Golf Lessons for Beginners

I am always on the lookout for easy to follow and understand golf tutorials whether they are in print, audio or video for golf lessons for beginners – today I have come across a really easy to understand routine that breaks it down to the first ‘5’ basic steps to the golf swing by the great Jack Nicklaus. It starts off with:

1) One basic swing.

2) One grip at all times. 

3) The same aim for all shots.

4) The ball should be in the same position for all shots.

5) The same arc and plane for all shots, the only variable is the length of the club that you are using for the shot. I think after reading this and then watching the video it will bring it all into perspective – I have always been a person once I have read about it and then watched it, it all comes together. Some may disagree with the great man himself, mainly with the ball positioning IE slightly open for a fade and slightly closed for a draw, but Jack keeps it simple with his method by opening or closing the clubface to get the same results, with so many majors under his belt it is hard to disagree with him!

We as golfers sometimes over think the game of golf, my philosophy has always been keeping it simple, one swing thought, don’t get annoyed when you play a bad shot, always think the next shot is always the most important and above all enjoy the game, if you stop enjoying your golf then give it a rest for a while and reevaluate the situation, once you have the enjoyment back in your game then your game will improve!
