Post Golf Practice Tips
i just found a very good stuff about Golf practicing tips, by Rose Hala who says..
As with anything in life, becoming a better golfer depends in large part on the amount of time spent in practice. It’s a good idea to try different clubs, shots, and greens to develop skills in a variety of contexts. A few simple do’s and don’ts might help.

Don’t just hit balls when you pick up a club for practice. Instead of looking for balls with a good lay for easy impact, hit more that have bad lays. This will help to improve your hand-eye coordination and your swing. Even when hitting the ball right down the middle, you sometimes end up with a bad lay. You will need to practice hitting golf balls that are laying poorly so you can become used to it and improve your skill.

The next time you go to the driving range, start hitting the range balls off the ground. Don’t move the range ball with your club head; learn to hit the ball where it lays. Here are some differences between hitting the ball off the ground and hitting the ball off the tee: Your spine should be tilted more from the tee than from the ground. The ball position from a tee should be well forward of center. When you hit off the ground, the ball should be centered. You should transfer your weight more from the tee than from the ground, as well. Your swing plane also should be more flat off the tee.

It’s important to have patience when hitting practice balls. It is not how fast you can hit them or how many that counts. It is learning to improve your swing. Take a break or step back from your shot just to see if your mind is thinking about the angle. Make each swing count. Remember, it is going to take a while to get your swing where you want it to be. You’re going to hit some bad shots before you’re swinging the way you should. Don’t give up because you hit some bad shots. Everyone does. Many golfers pick up a bad habit of swinging too fast. If you’re one of these golfers, before you start your swing, count to five first and do some checks like ensuring that your stance is correct. Then see if you are gripping the club correctly. Take the club back slowly until you reach the top of your swing, and then speed it up on your down stroke.

The difference between practice and playing is when you are practicing, you are trying to learn something, like how to get your ball to hold on the green. When you are playing, you are more focused and you are staring at your target, checking out which way the wind is blowing. Take more practice swings to know how hard you should hit the ball.

Master the basics when you are practicing. Check your grip, and then examine your clubface. Make sure your alignments are set up. See if you are playing the ball in the right spot of your stance. Pay attention to your back swing and follow through. Avoid taking the club back too far. Don’t forget to shift your weight at the right time. Soon this will become automatic.

Keep in mind that to be any good at golf, or any sport for that matter, you must master the basics.
