National Golf Month in Lewisville

golf ball on courseIf you’re new to the wonderful world of golf, you’re in luck—August is National Golf Month. Residents of apartments in Lewisville, Texas are lucky enough to be living near some of the best golfing options in the state. The best way to learn is at the hand of an experienced golfer; either a pro who offers lessons at a nearby course or a friend with lots of patience and skill. Before you go those routes, here are a couple of tips to help get you started on the road to enjoying great games of golf.

Stay Balanced

Staying balanced helps produce a more effective golf swing, so take the time to position yourself solidly on the ground. Keep your back as straight as you possibly can, and when you swing, tilt from the hips instead of from the waist. You may have to practice this technique for a while in order to become comfortable with it, but once you’ve got it down, it’ll be just like riding a bicycle and come back to you every time. You can even practice your swing in your apartment to get you ready for time on the green.

Perfect Your Grip 

A good grip is an essential component to any good game of golf. Using the palm and fingers or your left hand, grip the club firmly, then position your hand on the club using your forefinger, your middle finger, and your ring finger. This is another golf essential that you can practice in your apartment along with your alignment and balance.

Most of all, don’t forget to relax and have fun while on the course. Golf is a great way to socialize as well as to get plenty of outdoor exercise.
