Try taking swings from the opposite side to improve your game. If you are a lefty address the ball from the opposite side for a while. You should have a better swing when you return to your usual stance.
Gripping the putter is very important not just at address, but throughout the putting stroke. Maintain soft but sufficient pressure at address, and keep your pressure constant throughout the address and stroke. This will help prevent any jerky movements that may cause you to push or pull the ball at contact.
During your swing do not look up to anticipate where your ball is going. This will ruin the shot or cause you to miss the ball altogether. Keep your eyes on the ball until you hit it and then look up to see where it is going.
When you are above your ball as it is lying on a hill, you should have the ball be aligned closer with your front foot, this will help to prevent you from hitting past the ball or on the top of the ball, it will also help you to hit the ball slightly downward.
In order to eliminate your overpowering dominant hand from taking over your short game shots and causing poor results, consider adjusting your grip. Instead of using a traditional baseball or one finger overlap, a grip that involves overlapping several of your fingers from each hand will give you much more stability for these touchy finesse shots.
Slices are a big problem for golfers with a variety of causes, but the most common and easily correctable cause is the grip. Make sure that you can see the first two knuckles on your left hand and a V between the thumb and forefinger pointing at your right shoulder.
When you are beginning to learn how to play golf, you may want to consider buying odd-numbered irons, a putter, and a 3-wood. These are the easiest clubs for someone to use if they are not a golf expert. Once you become more advanced, you can consider switching to other clubs.
If your tee shot starts out heading away from the fairway, don’t slam your club and walk away without first watching where your ball goes. The best way to add insult to the injury of a poor drive is to realize as you walk down the course that you have no idea where your ball went. Keep track of that ball, and give yourself a chance to get back in the fairway without having to play a new ball and suffer the penalty stroke.
