How to Golf
#0 Warm up properly before the first stroke
Many amateur golfers make the same mistake: they go straight from the car to the range to hit their first balls without any fuss. But there's a danger.
#1 Everything under control
The correct grip is the most important foundation for a golf career. Even here, a lot can be done wrong.
#2 Swinging to the green
A good game of golf stands and falls with the right swing. Unfortunately, there is no universal recipe for this.
#3 Swinging in detail
There is a lot to consider when swinging. Therefore, when the ball flies in a curve, the alarm bells should ring.
#4 With the pitch on the green
If you want to get the ball onto the green after a good tee shot, you use the pitch. There are a few points to keep in mind here.
#5 The chip to the flag
The chip is used to place the ball as close as possible to the flag after the long shots from outside the green. But what to watch out for?
#6 The putt - about the happiness of the "plop"
The movement with which a putter is guided is fundamentally different from the complex swing with which the irons are used.
#7 The agony of (club) choice
When it comes to choosing the right club, beginners in particular often face a problem. The solution to this is called "loft".
#8 The right "tool" for every purpose
"If you buy cheap, you buy twice." This sentence also applies to the first set of clubs that a golf novice buys.
#9 An often disregarded mistake
Only those who know exactly where the ball is supposed to land can position themselves accordingly to the ball. Here are a few tips.
#10 The Slice - come to stay
The golfer's battle against the slice often feels like Don Quixote's battle against the windmills. But it doesn't have to be.
#11 Keep your composure
The correct stance before hitting the ball is not even half the battle in golf, but you can't do it without it.
#12 Your friend, the putting green - part 1
Many golfers only practice with woods and irons before the round, neglecting the putter. This often takes its revenge on the scorecard.
#13 Your friend, the putting green - part 2
I have found time and time again that it is important to practice putting after iron swings. Here are more tips.
#14 Your friend, the putting green - part 3
Driving the ball from the tee to the green is something everyone can do. But what about a successful putt afterwards?
#15 Pitch or chip?
The green is in range. A pitch or chip is due. But which shot should it be? And what's the difference? Here are the facts.
#16 Fairway wood or hybrid?
Woods such as hybrid and fairway wood make it easier to achieve good distances on transport shots. But which club is used when?
#17 With loft in the air
The keyword "loft" is existential in the game of golf when it comes to a good result on the round. But for this you should know the facts.
#18 With Stableford to the handicap
Handicap and Stableford - two terms that are inseparable from golf. But what exactly do they mean?
#19 Impunity relief - what is it?
The "penalty-free relief" knows every golfer. But again and again there are difficulties in its application. When does it apply and when not?
#20 The unhealthy "Chicken Wings"
"Chicken wings" in golf - as fast food - are unhealthy, at least for the swing and the distance and direction of the ball flight.
#21 The most common mistakes
From the wrong grip to the faulty swing plane, this text covers the most common mistakes like a checklist.
