Golf Tip #1 - Use your fingers

This is the first in a short series of features detailing tips that should get you playing better golf and enjoying the game even more. As with everything in the Golf section of the site, it is brought to you by The Walrus, who we thank for the input and the support.


Some people understand golf in different ways. What you tell one person may not work for another, but if you say the exact same thing in a different way the other person may love it. Golf is not an easy game but it can be simplified. This is the first in a selection of tips that may or may not suit you. 

If you are the type who practices regularly, why not try one or two of these at the range and see if they work for you. If they do not suit you, simply stop trying them. For best results consult a PGA Professional or any Teacher who promotes SIMPLE teaching. Technical is not always best. Very often it's just a few tips to get you hitting the ball better and when this brings confidence you are ready to up the level of teaching to help you enjoy the Greatest Game in the World, a lot more.

Putting Tip #1 - Use your fingers

Grip the putter any way you like, as long as it doesn't hinder your left hand's role in the stroke. But make sure to grip the club in your fingers. The shaft should run up the lifeline of your left hand for clubface control, but your fingers must contact the grip (as in the picture on the right). You can drop the right forefinger down the shaft, but don't steer with it. Forget about what your palms are doing. Fingers equal feel.

If you want to discuss these tips with fellow golfers why not pop along to The Walrus, which is quickly establishing itself as 'the' golfing pub in the city. Grab a beer, then sit and enjoy discussing any aspect of the Game of Kings and Gentlemanly Virtue to your hearts content in the company of similarly minded golfing fanatics.
