You CAN Be a Successful #Golf Beginner. Here's How

After introducing several of my colleagues to the wonderful world of golf, they caught the bug. It was inevitable - the ball was airborne, the weather cooperated...all things necessary for a successful start.

What steps were taken to ensure success for these two golf beginners and what is needed by the newbie to establish advancement of their golf goals? Here are three tips to help beginners get in, and stay in, the game.

1. Set a plan into motion. Most beginners want to get right out there on the golf course but that is not the best course of action. Time on the driving range is essential and, although practice is good, targeted practice is even better.

You have to be able to move your playing piece before you take the next step, otherwise, playing "military" golf is no fun (left, right, left, right). Step one leads us directly to step two (see below).

2. Qualified instruction is key to success. Although I put my colleague in the correct positions so that she could get started (she was very eager to hit the ball), when the professional golf instructor arrived, he noticed things I did not, such as a weak grip which was causing her to slice the ball. Take lessons but make sure to understand and learn each one before moving to the next.

3. Get custom fit for golf clubs. (This tip goes for all golfers!)
Did you know, it costs the same amount of money to buy golf clubs "off the rack" as it does to get them fit to your exact specifications? Also, a custom club fitter makes sure that the lie and weight of the golf clubs suit your particular swing.

If you are reading this and you are the beginner, remember that only focused practice will allow you to improve. I know you are in a hurry to get out onto a golf course but you will have so much more fun if you learn the basics! Remember, this is a game that will last you a lifetime. Take your time and enjoy the process.

What is the mentality of any golfer who wishes to become a winner? With so many different skill sets needed, from mental to physical, Golf for Beginners took one section from an infographic from Onlinegolf.uk to show you what, in their opinion makes The Perfect Golfer.




  • 1. Every shot counts, so remain focused on one shot at a time. If you hit a bad shot, it's automatically in the past and you must then focus solely on the shot you face next.
  • Play to your own strengths and try not to overthink shots. Keep it simple: aim to find the fairway and middle of the green every time.
  • Make your practice time a pressured environment. Imagine being in a scenario where that one shot counts. Apply your pre-shot routine and evaluate the success of each shot. This will help you when you play in your local weekend Stableford or medal competitions.

    There’s no such thing as the perfect golf swing, but there is a perfect golf swing for you…

    …a perfect swing that will astound your golf buddies every time you drive straight and long down the fairway.

    Everybody knows you should learn from the best. So it makes sense to learn your perfect golf swing from Michael Bannon, the life-long coach and mentor to the most exciting golfer in the world, Rory McIlroy.

    Michael Bannon knows what’s needed to produce your powerful and repeatable golf swing, no matter what level you are at right now. And soon you could be launching mammoth drives straight down the middle of the fairway, as your buddies fall silent in disbelief.

    Michael has coached Rory McIlroy from he was just 8 years old to becoming the World No. 1 golfer, and he is still Rory’s trusted coach to this day.

    He’s a real salt-of-the-earth, modest guy and often downplays his influence in Rory’s mega-success. You see, unlike most of the golfing “gurus”, Michael has an unusually simple approach to creating your perfect swing. And when Rory McIlroy says “Michael Bannon is undoubtedly the best golf swing coach in the world…”, then I guess we should pay attention.

    Michael loves to teach and now he’s ready to teach you too. He has created an amazing and unique online golf swing coaching program he calls…

    “The Six Step Golf Lesson”.

    I guarantee it’s unlike anything you’ve seen before. And what’s more amazing, it only takes 10 minutes per day!

    Have a look for yourself right here. ===> No.1 Golf Coach Reveals Simple Technique <=====

    Michael is so confident that this simple and unusual technique will work for you and absolutely anyone, that he’s giving his personal guarantee to anyone who isn’t 100% satisfied.

    Head over and check out Michael’s program now, and you’ll be on your way to producing your perfect, powerful and repeatable golf swing.

    Best Regards

    P.S. If you remember why Mr Miyagi was teaching the Karate Kid to “Wax On, Wax Off”, then Michael’s 6 Step Golf Lesson will make perfect sense to you. Check it out here. ===> No.1 Golf Coach Reveals Simple Technique <=====
