Starting As a Golfer
March 11, 2022

Playing golf well is a subject in and of itself, but are you only interested in the fundamentals? If that’s the case, welcome to the club! Find out everything you ought to know before you get started on your golfing journey here.

Playing Golf

Golf is a game where you visit a course and attempt to get your ball into each of the 18 holes while you play in succession. You want to sink the ball in the specified par, which is the highest number of shots one should take.

In addition, the following details should be taken into consideration:

  • You have the option of playing by yourself or with a team.
  • One round of golf can take anywhere from two to five hours, depending on how fast or slow you are.
  • There aren’t always 18 holes on a course. Some are smaller, while others are larger.
  • Dress codes at golf courses could be highly rigid. Check before you go.
  • If you’re just starting, stay away from competitive games.
  • If you’re new to the sport of golf, it’s a good idea to seek the advice of an expert.

Essentials for the Game of Golf

You must first master the fundamentals to take part in the tournament. There are only a few fundamentals to golf:

  • The rules
  • Your swing
  • The right equipment
  • Scoring
  • A good course

Instructions on how to hit a golf ball

You don’t have to be an expert golfer to get the hang of swinging the club. You only need to follow these instructions:

  • One: Put your feet firmly on the ground.
  • Two: Adjust your shoulders.
  • Three: Grab the club correctly.
  • Four: Stand closely behind the ball.
  • Five: Bend your knees just a little bit.
  • Six: Face the ball and keep your arms straight at all times.
  • Seven: Take a swing.
  • Eight: If you think the ball will strike someone, yell “fore!”

Gripping a Golf Club Properly: How Do You Do It?

You can hold the club in various ways; the important thing is to discover the one that works best for you.

  • Neutral Grip: Index fingers on each hand are at the shaft’s midpoint. Each hand should have three knuckles visible.
  • Strong Grip: Both hands’ index fingers are located to the right of the shaft’s center. Only the knuckles on the left hand are visible.
  • Weak Grip: Your index fingers are located to the left of the middle of the shaft. Right-hand knuckles are solely visible.
  • Interlocking Grip: Your right pinky and left index finger connect the two hands. Instead of laying atop each other, these fingers criss-cross each other.
  • Vardon Grip: The anchor that keeps the right hand close to your left pinky finger and falls between the middle and index fingers of the left hand.
  • Baseball Grip: Gripping the handle, the two hands are forced against each other without a pinky finger serving as an anchor point. Like holding a baseball bat, your right pinky finger should rest adjacent to your left index finger.


Following the basics of golf, you’ll need to locate an appropriate course for your next outing.
