If you really want to improve your golf game tomorrow, you need to get started with some new ideas.
How is your golf game? Are you working hard on it, and not seeing the results that you have been hoping for? After you have finished 18 holes, are you normally worn out? Do you get out driven by your playing partners? When you miss a shot, or hit a bad putt, do you carry the disappointment over to the next hole?
If you are not getting better, and the fun has gone out of your golf game, maybe it is time to give your game a boost. If you were to change your focus in five areas, your golf game would become consistently better. No one said that playing better golf would be easy, so if you will work on your flexibility, your endurance, your strength, find a good nutrition program, and develop your mental toughness, you will find your handicap steadily dropping.
If you will stretch on a regular basis, and do exercises that will increase your flexibility, then when you rush to the course, you will not be stiff on that first swing. Hitting a good shot off of the first tee, will give you a good mindset for your round. If you maintain good flexibility, not only will it help your golf swing for the present, but will keep you in good form as you age.
When you look at the senior pros, you will see that the ones who remain flexible, are the ones who continue to play well. Do you do anything to help your strength and endurance? Golf is more physically demanding than most people realize, and it takes being in good shape to make the entire 18 holes without losing leg strength.
Most people do not know how much the lower body is needed in the golf swing, and tired legs cause a lot of bad shots. To hit the ball a long ways is dependent on clubhead speed, which can be generated with the proper swing. That is why most pros, even ones that are not that big or strong, can hit the ball a long way.
But leg strength is important, and endurance is necessary, to be the best golfer you can be. If you find yourself tiring before the round ends, the problem might be your nutrition. Not eating before you get to the course, and then grabbing chips or a candy bar, along with a pop is not going to help your golf for the day.
What should a diet consist of for your sports nutrition menu? Try a high quality carbohydrate to go with lean protein, fruits, vegetables, and of course, lots of clean, cool water. Always drink plenty of water during a round of golf. Now that you are eating the right foods, and exercising, mental toughness will come easily.
Usually, it is hard to concentrate when you are not feeling well, but with extra energy from your proper diet, and your lack of stiffness and soreness from your stretching, you will be hitting the ball better, and your mind will be focused and positive.
Since you feel so good physically, and your swing feels so good, that any bad shots you hit will not affect you as much as before. Play better golf by working on your flexibility, strength, endurance, nutrition, and mental toughness. Golf is way more fun, when you feel better, and play better.
