How To Drive a Golf Ball For Beginners

How to drive a golf ball for beginnersHow to drive a golf ball for beginners is not that easy.  I found this fact out early in my golf experience.

Does the following sound familiar ?

It’s a beautiful clear day, sun shining, blue sky with just a few white clouds, perfect temperature of about 75 degrees and just a light breeze to make everything even more amazing.

You are a golf beginner, played only a few games in your life, not really confident at all in what you are doing on the golf course, although you wish you were a better golfer.  It’s just not that simple. Well, I know I’m not alone. Driving a golf ball for beginners isn’t quite as easy as it looks on TV.

But, you do have the new golf shoes, new clubs, a shirt that says Arnold Palmer and a great golf hat that says Budweiser (for some reason).  You are ready, so, what could go wrong ?

You’re on the first tee ready to hit your first shot of the day, with the dreaded driver in your hands. You’re quickly trying to remember how to swing a driver as taught by Johnny Miller in the PGA golf tournament last week, but too many thoughts come rushing into your mind.  Oh no, your friends and lots of other strangers seem to be watching your every move as if you were somebody really important.

You could have heard a pin drop – why was everyone so quiet ? You put the tee in the ground and place the ball on it. That was easy …

You take a look down the fairway at the straightaway 380 yard par 4 hole.  The group ahead of you is out of the way so it is time for you to take your turn.  You grip the club in a rather baseball bat type fashion, try and align yourself to the target with your feet (just like they do on television) and then you notice a few grins in the crowd. What am I doing wrong you silently think to yourself ?  I don’t think this is funny at all.

Not to hold up the game and the patience of my friends any longer, you decide to take that first swing of the day. You turn the club around your shoulders and thrust yourself with everything you’ve got at that little unsuspecting white ball on the tee.  Boom !  You hit it right in the middle of the face of the club and then quickly follow through with a high finish just like a pro.

Boy did that feel good !

Well, not quite.

Your shot starts out like a dart and then about 100 yards into its journey it takes an abrupt detour to the right and keeps going.  “Oh no, not again” you exclaim !  As your friends eagerly and sympathetically watch your ball quickly enter the trees you here the unwelcome sound of branches cracking and a few birds tweeting some insults your way.

When you find your ball, it is surrounded by a forest of oak trees and you can’t even see where the fairway is, although you can see your pals in the distance waiting for you to try your next shot.

Driving a golf ball straight must be nice. Lots of people can do it, so why can’t you ?  Must be in your genes or DNA. Some people have it and some don’t.

Well, anyway, you hack at the ball with an iron and hit a few trees again on the way and when the dust settled some 15 minutes later, you had to write an 8 on the scorecard.

Not a very good start. Four over par and you have only played the first hole.

There must be an easier way.

Maybe there is …

No more frustration from playing inconsistent and butt-ugly golf. I was in the zone. Loving the game like
never before.

Welcome to My Golf Beginners Blog !

Hi, this is my personal blog and a place for me to share my experience with an emergency situation I had less than a year ago. I was tired of my friends making fun of my golf game and laughing at the shots I was making and I was fed up with losing golf balls in the woods, in the water, out of bounds, in the parking lot and even in people’s backyards when houses were around the course.

Kind of embarrassing and frustrating, to put it mildly.

I had to do something or quit the game and that is why I called it an emergency.

Maybe you’re here because you also want to find some golf driving tips for beginners, or maybe you are just looking for some information on the proper golf swing.  Either way, you are in the right place.

Now back to my story …

I really didn’t want to pay $100 for a half hour lesson with a local golf professional because I knew I would have to go back again and again and I was not made of money. I had to save a few bucks for green fees and lost bets and of course golf balls at $4.00 a piece. Golf can be expensive some times, so you save money where you can.

Funny how this happened, but there was kind of a new friend that joined our group named Dave and he always seemed to play well. He was average height and weight like me and around the same age as me (middle age). He even shot a 73 one game not too long ago, I think mostly because he hits his drives so straight it was hard to believe. I guess if you’re never in trouble you can shoot lower scores.
