10 beginner golf tips from websites you should check out right now

If you’re getting into golf for the first time, or if you’re new at the sport and are looking for beginner golf tips, hunting for best golf clubs for beginners, or ways to improve your game, here at Birdieable I’ve tried to write a variety of articles to help you.

But sometimes it’s nice to get a wide range of opinions – a choice of tips – all in one place, and that’s what I’d like to do here.

Golf can be a dizzying sport sometimes. I mean, just take a look at all the terms associated with it! You could lose your mind trying to remember all that.

And similarly, if you’re struggling to play better (and trust me, I feel your pain!) there are so many websites, articles, books and videos out there that it can be hard to find what you’re looking for.

Well here are 10 of my favourite golf tips for beginners from around the web, all taken from sites well worth checking out if you’re learning the sport or looking to get better.

This article and video covers one of the biggest problems a lot of golfers face when they’re just starting out: hitting the ball with good, solid contact consistently. It’s so frustrating when you smash the club into the turf, or else miss completely. This tip should help with that – and it’s well worth looking around the rest of the site, too!

Here, Golf Tips Mag goes through 10 aspects of the golf swing, so you can focus in on what you might be doing wrong and how you can improve it. It’s illustrated with handy photos, showing the correct positions, and covers key aspects of a good golf swing – from using your body for power to how to use your wrists properly.

In this post, the basics are covered – from stance to grip. But every now and then, we all need a reminder of the basics, and if you’re just starting out with the sport, its crucial to get the fundamentals right. Once you’ve got the basics down, you can work on each part of your game as a different element, but the basics always stay the same.

Golf Digest has an interesting piece here, first starting with how to choose the right golf clubs, and then moving on to the golf ball and how to play the game. It’s easy to read, but quite thorough, covering all aspects of golf. Perfect if you’re keen to start, but don’t know where to begin!

The Hitting it Solid website is loaded with fantastic advice, so it’s well worth digging around to see what you can find. I particularly like this post on golf swing speed, though, because it is one of those technical aspects of the sport that can be hard to grasp sometimes. Well worth a read before you next head onto the driving range!

A lot of golf tips will feel like imperatives. You MUST do this. You HAVE to do that. It’s enough to make you feel like you’ll never succeed. But the top tip in this list, and one of my favourites from around the web, is that you should play how you feel. What does that mean? Well, you don’t need to rigidly follow instructions to ride a bike, do you? A great list, and well worth checking out.

Focusing on the most problematic areas of your swing, this post is a fantastic way to improve your game. Whether you’re slicing it, hooking it, or pulling it – you can read through these tips (complete with handy illustrated images, like the one featured above) and pinpoint exactly where you’re going wrong – and what you can do to fix it.

When you’re starting out in golf, what’s more frustrating than lining up your drive, swinging through, connecting with the ball – only to see it swerve way, way off to the right or left? Golf can be crushing sometimes. But Golf Swing TV is here to help, and this is a great video if you want to improve your driving.

  3. Swings are just so variable it is hard to coach that i think. Bubba Watson is a great example where he would not be the player he is today if he had followed tips like this. Putting however is a uniform swing. Do you have any specific putting tip blogs

    • I agree Gio, Eamon Darcy (for those old enough to remember him), is another great example! I am due to release a series of putting tips very shortly, stay tuned! thanks for reading and happy golfing.
