Miami Golf Tips Of The Month / Consejos Del Mes

Practice From Bad Lies

Most golf players have to frequently hit from bad lies in almost every golf round: high roughs, lies with close to no grass, balls at a different level than their feet, hard or soft bunkers… These situations make each hit a very particular experience. Many amateurs refer to these situations as bad luck; nevertheless, have they really prepared for them? Most amateur players practice on the driving range or the chipping green from ideal positions and in perfect conditions. Are all our strokes as such on the course? The answer is no, which is why today we advise our followers to practice from uncomfortable lies. To achieve this goal, try hitting balls on the range from divots, difficult inclines in which the ball is not in an optimal position, and most important of all, practice around the Green, making sure the ball is a bit compromised and hard to hit.   

Try this technique when training and your score will certainly improve; even more so on rounds in which we do not always land on the fairway.

 

Equipment

MIAMI GOLF makes it their purpose to recommend our clients acquiring a set of Golf Clubs that matches every PLAYER’s profile.

This is why we take the selection of products and brands very seriously at the moment of putting together a GOLF SET for our clients.  

We are able to determine the right SHAFT for every SWING speed, age, and size of each client by analyzing his/her golf SWING using the latest generation TRACKMAN system.

This week, MIAMI GOLF references two GOLF CLUB brands that have shined in 2017 thanks to their DRIVERS. The first one is TAYLORMADE, with an improved version of the DRIVER M2 that has become one of the first options for GOLF PLAYERS buying DRIVERS. Every week we observe how more and more players add this new 2017 TAYLORMADE model to their GOLF BAGS.

Likewise, CALLAWAY has done a great job this year by launching their new DRIVER GBB EPIC, which has significantly elevated the company’s sales in the first half of the year.

On a less than positive note, TIGER WOODS, former number one golf player and fourteenth-time Major champion, was arrested last week by the Jupiter, Florida police, on DUI charges. MIAMI GOLF expresses its solidarity with TIGER WOODS and wishes him a soon recovery from his physical and personal problems. We miss TIGER on the course and we hope to see him back soon hitting long DRIVERS and competing in PGA Tour events.

Practicar Desde Posiciones Incómodas

Para la gran mayoría de los golfistas es muy común tener que pegar tiros durante todas las rondas de golf desde posiciones incómodas, rough alto, lies con poca grama, bolas por encima o debajo del nivel de los pies, bunkers muy suaves o duros, lo cual hace de cada tiro una experiencia distinta y particular. Hemos notado a muchos amateurs mencionar la mala suerte que tienen al encontrarse con estas situaciones; sin embargo, ¿estamos realmente preparados para afrontarlas? La mayoría de los jugadores amateurs suelen practicar en el driving range o chipping Green desde posiciones ideales y en condiciones perfectas, pero, ¿son realmente todos nuestros tiros así en el campo? La respuesta es no, por lo que en esta edición aconsejamos a nuestros seguidores a practicar desde lies incómodos. Para ello, es bueno pegar pelotas en el range desde algunos divots, desde posiciones con inclinaciones en donde la pelota no siempre se encuentre en una perfecta posición y, sobre todo, alrededor del Green, tratar que en nuestras prácticas la pelota siempre se encuentre un poco comprometida y complicada de pegar.

Prueben esta técnica en sus entrenamientos y verán como mejoran sus resultados; sobre todo en esa ronda que no estamos por el fairway en todo momento.

Palos de Golf

Para MIAMI GOLF, es fundamental recomendar a nuestros clientes adquirir unos PALOS DE GOLF que se ajusten al perfil de cada JUGADOR; es por ello que tomamos con mucha seriedad la selección de productos y marcas a la hora de armar un SET DE GOLF para nuestros clientes.

Con un análisis especializado del SWING de cada JUGADOR DE GOLF, para el cual utilizamos un TRACKMAN system de última generación, podemos determinar el SHAFT correcto para cada velocidad de SWING, edad y tamaño particular de cada cliente.

Esta semana MIAMI GOLF hace mención especial a dos marcas de PALOS DE GOLF que han destacado en 2017 por el desempeño de sus DRIVERS. La primera es TAYLORMADE, que con la versión mejorada del DRIVER M2 ha logrado afianzarse como una de las primeras opciones cuando un JUGADOR DE GOLF decide cual DRIVER va a comprar. Todas las semanas vemos en el PGA TOUR como más y más jugadores agregan a su MALETA DE GOLF este nuevo modelo 2017 de TAYLORMADE.

Por su parte, CALLAWAY ha hecho un gran trabajo este año con el lanzamiento de su nuevo DRIVER GBB EPIC, el cual ha elevado las ventas de la compañía en un porcentaje importante durante los primeros seis meses del año.

En una nota negativa, no podemos dejar de mencionar lo sucedido la semana pasada con el golfista TIGER WOODS, ex numero uno del mundo y ganador de 14 majors, quien fue detenido por la policía de Jupiter, Florida, mientras manejaba su vehículo bajo influencia de sustancias prohibidas. MIAMI GOLF se solidariza con TIGER WOODS y le desea una pronta recuperación a sus problemas físicos y personales. TIGER hace mucha falta en los CAMPOS DE GOLF y esperamos verlo pronto de regreso pegando largos DRIVERS y compitiendo en eventos del PGA TOUR.

How To Find A Golf Instructor

How To Find A Golf Instructor

Whether you’re new to the game or a seasoned player looking for some tips or trying to overcome a handicap, hiring a golf instructor can be great for your game. But how do you find a reliable teacher to get you on the right track? That really depends on your goals and personality. Here are a few tips to help you find the perfect instructor for you.

 

Personality Matters

When you’re looking for a golf instructor, you need to take their personality into account. There are some people who you meet and instantly develop a rapport, but there are others who rub you the wrong way. When you’re starting a teacher/student relationship, it’s important that there’s a mutual respect and that this person is someone you can take advice and orders from without feeling attacked. You may need to meet with more than one instructor to find someone who you connect with, but once you do, you can effectively communicate with each other and really improve your game.  

 

The Right Experience

Another thing to consider when finding a golf instructor is the experience and qualifications they have. After all, there aren’t any requirements needed to teach golf, so you have to make sure the person you’re learning from knows what they’re talking about. A good golf coach is always learning new things and seeking new accreditations, like getting a PGTTA certificate from the PGA. You may also want to find someone local who has experience dealing with your climate.

For example, when you’re a Miami golf enthusiast, you may want to find someone who is used to playing in hotter temperatures, not someone from up North who thinks 75 degrees is warm.  

 

Ask Around

Referrals are probably the easiest way to find a coach in your area. If you don’t know anyone who uses an instructor, you can visit Miami golf courses and ask at the clubhouse. Most courses either have a pro they employ or can recommend someone who frequents their club.

 

Keep Searching

Finding a reliable golf instructor isn’t always easy, but don’t feel bad if you go through three or four coaches before you find someone you can work with. The worst thing you can do is settle for an instructor you don’t feel comfortable with or someone who isn’t invested in helping you learn and grow.

 

When it comes to finding a golf instructor, there are many things to consider. How well do you get along? Is this someone you can trust to help you improve? Are you comfortable with their teaching style?

Do they have enough Miami golf experience to know the best times to play in our climate?

Once you find someone who fits your criteria, go out and play. Not only will your game get better, you’ll also develop the confidence you need to stare down any opponent on the green.

First time on the course? Here’s what to expect

First time on the course? Here’s what to expect

If you’re new to golfing, heading to a full course may seem intimidating, but if you’re serious about golfing it’s important to get out there and see what it’s like. So grab your clubs and let’s explore a golf course!

 

Lay Of The Land

Golf courses follow a standard and each hole is set up with certain specific elements. These include the teeing ground where you initially hit your ball, a fairway – the area between the tee and the green, the rough and other hazards that you should try to avoid including sand traps and water hazards, and the green with a flagstick and cup where you end your hole. Of course, while all holes have these elements they are arranged in different ways and various lengths over the 18-hole course to make the game challenging and fun.

 

Many courses also include a driving or practice range with bunkers, greens, and driving areas. This section is separate from the course itself and is a great place to warm up and get to know your clubs.

 

Keep It Under Par

When you come up to your first hole, you’ll notice a sign with the hole number and name and the word par with a number. That number is there to tell you how many strokes the hole will take, also known as par. This doesn’t account for any handicaps, which can be factored in later. By setting a par for each hole, your golf course is providing you with a standard to play to. Of course, it’s more fun to get a hole in one, but you can challenge yourself to get below par as you play your game.    

 

Join The Club

Another benefit of going to a golf course is the clubhouse. Even many smaller courses include a clubhouse where you can find refreshments, dining options, and a place to relax after a long game. Many clubhouses include their own golf store or pro shop. It’s generally included for the convenience of the golfers so that you won’t have to stop at a golf store on your way to the course if you forgot your hat or need extra balls. It’s important to note that dress codes can vary by location, so it’s a good idea to check with your clubhouse you go.

 

Cart or Not?

When you’re on a big course, you may want to hire a golf cart for the day. If it’s a smaller course or a nice day, you may want to walk. Either way, the choice is yours. If you do decide to use a golf cart, remember there’s a certain etiquette to follow that includes staying behind golfers, avoiding loud noises, avoiding wet turf, and using common sense so everyone can enjoy their game and do their best.

 

That’s all there is to it – well-planned holes that you can walk or drive to with recommended pars to shoot for, and lovely clubhouses with their own pro shop or golf store where you can stop for equipment and advice. Now that you know what to expect, it’s time to play, so grab your clubs and get out there!

Five Putting Tips

Five Putting Tips

There are many golfers who could spend days on the driving range, practicing their swing and pushing for longer and longer drives. That’s great for your long game, but playing a successful round of golf depends on your ability to navigate down the fairway as well as on the green. That’s why putting is so important.

 

Let’s face it, we’d all love to make a hole in one every time we swing, but the chances of that happening are low. Instead, concentrate on improving your short game and learn how to make each stroke count. Here are five pro tips to help you improve your game and hole more putts.

 

Practice, Practice, Practice

As with everything in life, from playing the piano to driving a car, practice is key, so it should come as no surprise that it also applies to putting. But the great thing is you can practice your putt even on days when you can’t squeeze in a full 18 holes. Buy a putting green of your own from a local golf shop or online and set it up in your home or office to practice each and every day.  

 

Read the Green

To improve your game, reading the green is crucial. Some players think this is a pro move, but over time you can develop your eye and see the breaks easier. To start, consider where water would flow if it was raining. This makes it simpler to predict how your ball will roll along the green so you can sink more putts. There are also devices you can buy at your golf shop to help you read the green, but instead of lugging extra equipment on the course, take the time to learn to read the green on your own.

 

Adjust Your Grip

Putting requires a steady hand and finesse. Using the same grip you use for power shots just won’t work. Instead, use your fingers and angle your wrists slightly downward. This will give you a gentler swing so you can become more consistent in your short game.

 

Line It Up

You’re on the green, staring at the hole. You’ve adjusted for the roll of the green and are ready to putt. But where are you aiming? It’s important to line up your shot. Start by visualizing where you want the ball to go and make an invisible line in your mind. Once you’ve committed to that line, take your shot. As time goes by, you’ll get better at drawing your line and your putts will feel more natural.  

 

Block Them Out

Proper putting technique requires intense concentration, and while the noise of a crowd can give you a rush, it can also be extremely distracting. Block out those distractions by staying focused on your stance and your breathing. You may also want to adopt a personal mantra for occasions when the pressure gets to be too much. Repeat this saying in your head, line up your shot, and don’t forget to breathe.

 

When it comes to putting, there are many small changes you can make that will make a big difference in your game. From reading the green and lining up your shot to adjusting your grip and putting in the practice, these techniques can help you get more confident in your short game and play like you mean it. And leave the extra gadgets at the golf shop – the best way to improve your game is to get on the course and play.

All About The Shoes

All About The Shoes

Walk into any golf shop, and you can take your pick from a variety of golf shoes with different designs and features.

But what do you really need?

That depends on a number of things. Are you a golfer who loves to ride in the cart, or do you prefer to walk from hole to hole? Do you want a lighter, sneaker-style shoe or a more traditional, structured shoe? There are a lot of things to consider when selecting your pair, so here are some important features you should look for.

 

Stability

When you’re trying on shoes at the golf shop, you might notice that certain pairs make you feel more solid on your feet while some obviously lack stability. If you practiced your swing barefoot, you can see just how much your feet move as you play. When you put these factors together, you’ll understand how important stability is to your game. Most golf shoes have stabilizers built in along the side of the arches and midfoot support. Spiked shoes are another good option because they help your feet stay firm regardless of the terrain.

 

Balance

If you look closely as you examine the shoes at the golf shop, you’ll see that many have a broader shoe base than a sneaker or loafer. The reason is that, unlike other athletic shoes made for quick, sustained movements, but because golf is a standing game, the need for a wide base to provide better balance is crucial.

 

Flexibility

Many times, golf is played on less than ideal terrain. There are slopes, hills and sand traps to contend with, which can lead to taking a shot at an awkward angle. Unlike football or basketball shoes that keep the ankle tight and rigid, golf shoes need to provide support and flexibility so that you can angle your body, and your feet, correctly. This will not only help you make a better shot but will also reduce your chance of injury.

 

Comfort

This may seem like a no-brainer, but when you’re on your feet for 18 holes, you need shoes that are comfortable and keep your feet safe from fatigue. You’ll find many pairs at your local golf shop and can explore the options, including whether you like padded soles, if you want your shoes to be waterproof, and how well the shoes allow your feet to breathe.  

 

When you’re searching for a reliable pair of golf shoes, there are many things to keep in mind, including stability, balance, flexibility, and comfort.

Visit your local golf shop to see what options are available to you.

You might be surprised by how many pairs of shoes have the functions you need and still let you show your style on the course.

The Benefits of Golfing

The Benefits of Golfing

Golf is good for you. While it’s known more as a leisure activity, it’s one of the most popular sports around the world and gives its players many benefits they may not even realize they’re experiencing, like improved physical and mental health, new bonding experiences, and a better nights sleep.

So next time you stop by your golf store, you can pick up more than a new set of balls – you’ll also find some much-needed peace of mind.

Here are some more benefits that golfing can provide.  

Your health

When you’re on the course all day, you may walk up to eight miles without thinking about it. And if you carry or pull your bag the entire time, you’ll burn even more calories, which can help you lose weight. Golfing is also increases blood flow to the brain, increases your heart rate, which can help lower your cholesterol, and improves your circulation. It can even help improve your vision by making you focus on small objects over a long distance. Overall, golfing is a great workout you don’t know you’re getting.    

Networking

For selecting the right set of clubs with the pro at the golf store to playing 18 holes on the weekend, golf is a social sport and lends itself to creating new relationships. Since golf is a game that has a lot of down time, there is plenty of time to get to know your fellow golfers. Many professionals even take to the course for meetings and a large number of business deals are closed over a round of golf. In fact, many young professionals are often encouraged to learn the sport just for the networking opportunities.    

Reduced Stress

When you’re having a hectic day, a round of golf can help you refocus and de-stress. As we’ve mentioned, golf is a social sport and walking around outdoors with friends who share your interests is a great way to escape your troubles for a short time. Studies have even indicated that after playing a round of golf, natural endorphins, or mood enhancing chemicals, are released by our brains, making you feel more relaxed and happier.

Sleeping

After you’ve visited the golf store, hit the course and loaded up your gear, it’s natural to be tired. In fact, because of all the exercise golf provides, golfers typically go to sleep faster and sleep more deeply than non-golfers. This is because, after using your muscles and mind your body needs a deeper sleep in order to regenerate and repair.

Most people don’t think of golf as a sport that can help improve your body and mind, but the fact is, golfing has many health benefits.

Not only can it help you lose weight, it’s also a great way to relieve stress, improve sleep and even provides opportunities to network. So next time you’re going to hit the green, remember that it isn’t just for fun — it’s also great for your physical and mental health.

The Weather and Golf – What To Wear To Be Prepared

The Weather and Golf – What To Wear To Be Prepared

When you’re a Miami golfer, there are many types of weather that can impact your game. Most of the time it’s hot, but we have our cool days too. It can also get windy or rainy without any warning and, unless you’re heading for the clubhouse, it’s important to dress appropriately. After all, as author Charles Hix said, “Looking good isn’t self-importance; it’s self-respect.”

Out In The Cold

Luckily, when you’re a Miami golf player you usually don’t need to worry about playing in the cold, but we do have days when the temperature drops.

If you are planning to grab your clubs on a chilly day, the best advice is to layer up. Wear two pairs of socks and make sure to keep your hands warm so you stay in control of your club. It’s also advisable to wear thermals under your golf shirt. And don’t forget your hat – it’s hard to concentrate on your game if you think you’re going to freeze your ears off.

The Rain, Rain, Rain Came Down, Down, Down

Most Miami golf players know that when there’s lightening and thunder it’s probably better to stay inside than risk getting electrocuted.

Some players may tell you that playing in the rain is a bad idea and that can be true. But in a light storm, there’s no reason to go inside. In fact, it’s been argued that golfing in the rain can make you a better player. If you do decide to go out when it’s wet, make sure to wear a poncho or light, waterproof jacket and pants, and shoes that have good grips. You should also pack your umbrella and a hat. And don’t forget about your clubs – use a rain hood to protect them and keep your golf bag dry.

It’s Getting Hot In Here

As a Miami golf enthusiast, playing in the heat is second nature.

We wear sweaters when it dips in the sixties, but what’s a golfer to do when it’s summer and the heat and humidity are almost overwhelming. The first things to remember are to stay hydrated and apply sunscreen. Dehydrated and sunburned isn’t a good look. Then, pick an outfit that will keep you comfortable as the mercury rises. There are many loose, light-colored clothes made of moisture wicking materials to choose from that can keep you cool throughout your game. It’s also a good idea to wear a hat and bring a towel. It can get sweaty out there.

When you’ve been playing golf for a while, especially as a Miami golf pro, you know that the weather plays as important a role as your clubs and balls. It’s important to dress for success on the green - with layers in the cold, ponchos when it’s wet, and light clothes when it’s hot. Not only will you stay comfortable as you play, but by dressing for the occasion you can actually improve your game.

Self Talk On The Green

Self Talk On The Green

Golf is a mental game. Sure, a proper stance, a good follow through and a solid set of clubs are vital, but when you’re playing on the green of a Miami golf course, it’s just you and the ball.

Unlike other sports, there’s no competitor trying to tackle you or intercept your pass. Instead, your mind is where your competition lies, and it’s all too easy to get caught up in your own thoughts and forget the basics. If you really want to improve your score, you need to change this negative self-talk and replace it with a positive point of view.

Changing your frame of mind is easier said than done. When you miss a short putt, “what’s wrong with me today?” can suddenly spring to your mind without any conscious thought behind it. After all, it’s much more common to internalize negative thoughts than it is for positive ones. 

For example, if you sink a hole in one on a difficult Miami golf course like the Blue Monster, you’ll probably cheer, but if you hit it into the sand, the most you’ll do is mutter.

To change this habit, it’s important to do what the pros do and adopt a positive attitude towards your game. Instead of getting mad after a bad shot, try telling yourself, “I’m a good enough player to make this work,” or after a rough game remind yourself that everyone can have an off day, but that doesn’t mean you’re a terrible golfer. The more you can build yourself up, the better you will play.

Some professional players adopt a golf mantra. The trick is to find a phrase that works for you and puts you in the right mindset to play your best. For some players it’s, “it’s all about this shot and this moment.” Others use longer phrases like, “"Why do we fall down? So we can pick ourselves back up." No matter what saying you adopt, it’s important to choose something that puts your head in the game without adding to the pressure you’re already feeling. It’s also a good idea to avoid negative words like don’t, can’t, and won’t, for example, a phrase like “I won’t mess this up.” This kind of self-talk can make your issues seem worse than they are and influence your swing for the worse. 

It’s all too easy to get frustrated, especially if you’re on a Miami golf course in the heat of the summer. 

By changing your point of view you can alter your entire game. So the next time you’re on the course, leave the negative thoughts behind and try replacing them with positive self-talk. You might be surprised by how a healthy attitude towards your game can help you enjoy it more and improve your score.

Five Important Items To Keep In Your Golf Bag

Five Important Items To Keep In Your Golf Bag

When you start playing golf, it seems simple enough to visit your local golf shop, grab some clubs and balls and head straight for the green, but any seasoned golfer will tell you there’s a lot more to it than that. Without the proper equipment in your bag, you can spend a long day suffering on the course instead of enjoying your game, especially if you’re playing in sunny South Florida. Here are five things to keep in your bag that can help you stay comfortable when you’re practicing your swing.

  1. A Clean Towel

Although golf is thought of as an upscale sport, the truth is, when you’re on the green you’re going to get dirty. Always keep a clean towel on hand to clean your clubs and balls after you clear a hole. And if you’re a Miami golf enthusiast, you might want to keep a second towel handy for personal use.

  1. Water

When you’re on the green, water is generally something you want to avoid, especially if your ball lands in a lake, but when you’re preparing for your game, a bottle of water is vital. Any Miami golf pro will tell you that, under the blazing sun of our beautiful city, staying hydrated isn’t an option – it’s a necessity.

  1. Sunscreen

Being prepared for a game of golf also means thinking about the elements, especially if you’re a Miami golfer. With unpredictable temperatures, clouds that move in and out, and the ever-present threat of heat exhaustion, the sun is one factor you don’t want to forget. Pack your favorite sunscreen in your bag, and remember to apply it often to avoid getting sunburn while you play.

  1. Extra Gloves

When you’re playing golf, your equipment is as important as your game. If you’re playing with a sweaty glove, which happens frequently if you’re a Miami golf enthusiast, or if you find that your glove has a hole in it, it can really throw off your grip. Pack a few extra gloves and you’ll always have a dry pair as backup.

  1. Cash

Other than being a good idea to always keep some money on hand for emergencies, having cash on the course can actually help with your game. For example, a coin makes an excellent marker when you need to move your ball so another player can take their shot. Many courses also have vending machines along the property so you can enjoy a snack or beverage as you play.

The Top Five Gifts For The Golfer In Your Life

The Top Five Gifts For The Golfer In Your Life

 The holidays are fast approaching, and if you have a golfer in your life, finding the perfect gift can be a challenge. Sure, you can find online stores that offer all sorts of gadgets and gizmos, but how do you know if these gifts will be useful to your loved one? Instead of searching for a gift that might not hit the mark, here are a few items we know any golfer would be proud to receive.  

Performance Tracking System

There are several golf performance tracking systems available to help your golfer uncover their strengths and weaknesses so they can improve their game. The most popular is the Arccos 360.

Available at many online stores, it’s fully automatic, and provides real-time GPS and shot-tracking system.    

Putting Mat

When the weather is uncooperative, or your golfer is just too busy to hit the green, an indoor putting mat is a great option. Available in a variety of lengths and prices, most golfers would love to have their own putting mat to help practice their swing and add more finesse to their short game.

Golf Watch

If your golfer is more traditional, instead of finding an app or performance tracking system at many online stores, you may want to consider a golf watch. Equipped with a GPS, stopwatch meter, and odometer, these devices provide accurate yardage information and can come in handy when facing a blind shot. They’re also extremely convenient – just put it on your wrist and start planning.  

Head Covers

When golfing, it’s common for clubs to shift in their bag and jostle around, which can cause damage to the clubs. That’s where head covers come in. They provide protection for the heads and shafts of the clubs, and with an array of designs, can show off any personality on the golf course. You can find them in shops like Miami Golf, and they are also readily available at online stores around the world. So if you know your golfer is a serious player, you can find a sleek and practical set for them, but if they’re a bit of a character, you can also find a hilarious set that matches them to a tee.  

Sunglasses

When you think about golf gifts, sunglasses might not make your list, but for any avid golfer, they’re vital.

Online stores can offer a wide range of options, but for the perfect pair, take your golfer shopping with you so they can see what fits them best.

It may not be a surprise gift, but it’s one they will use again and again.

Get A Golf Shop Fitting

Get A Golf Shop Fitting

Whether you’re a new golf player or a seasoned pro, finding the right fit for your golf clubs can completely change your game. If your clubs are too long, too short, or too heavy, it can throw off your swing and make it harder to play. After all, your clubs are your tools, and without the proper tools how can you expect to get the results you’re looking for?

Visit The Miami Golf Shop    

The best way to be sure that your golf clubs fit properly is to get a professional club fitting.

We’ll work with you to get a custom-fit set of clubs so that you can improve your swing and really enjoy the game. We’ll start by analyzing your swing, measuring your height and checking your grip size. Then, we’ll select a few clubs to see which is best for you. After that, the game is in your hands.

Resize Your Old Clubs At The Golf Store

If you already have a set of golf clubs, bring them into our golf store and we can determine if they’re the right fit for you. If not, we can adjust them by changing the grip thickness to fit your hand size, altering the shaft length based on your wrist-to-floor measurement, changing the shaft weight for better balance, or fixing the shaft flex for a more powerful swing.

And if your golf clubs are old and in disrepair, we can also recommend another set of clubs that will work better for you. 

Getting a custom-fit set of golf clubs isn’t just for professionals. Even amateur players need to have a solid set of tools to get started on the right foot. At Miami Golf, we’re here for you.

Miami Golf Tips For Beginners

Miami Golf Tips For Beginners

Golf is a challenging sport, and some players take years developing their perfect swing. If you’re just starting out, the rules may seem complicated and you may not know what equipment you really need.

At Miami Golf, we want to take the mystery out of golfing so you can relax and enjoy the game. Here are a few tips to help improve your game.

Find A Good Coach

When you’re just starting out, golfing can be frustrating. You may not know the proper stance to take or which club is right for which hole. By finding an instructor and taking some lessons, you can learn the basics and go at your own pace. Maybe you’re a natural putter, but your driving game could use some work. Or perhaps you always land in the sand trap and don’t know what to do. A good instructor can help you overcome these hurdles so you can make the most of your game.

Let Miami Golf Help Find The Right Equipment

Like any sport, the right equipment is vital to your golfing game. And when you’re just starting out, you might not know what clubs are best, or the difference between one ball and another. But how do you know what you need, and more importantly, what you don’t? At Miami Golf, we want to help you get into the game. Come into our store or give us a call and one of our experts will be able to answer your questions and guide you through the maze of options to get you started on the right foot.

Start On The Driving Range

The driving range is a great place to begin your golfing adventures. With no one behind you, waiting for you to clear the hole, you can go at your own pace and practice your long game. It’s also a great place to get to know your clubs, practice your swing, and build your confidence as you learn about the basics of the game.  

Miami Golf Means Unpredictable Weather

When it comes to golf in Miami, we’re lucky to be able to play all year long, but that doesn’t mean the weather won’t affect your game. Summer heat and thunderstorms, not to mention the occasional hurricane, can put a huge damper on your game. So play smart. Always carry a bottle of water, sunscreen, and rain gear in your bag, just in case you get caught in foul weather. You may also want to keep a towel, some cash and a few snacks in your bag so you aren’t heading back to the clubhouse after every hole.  

Now that you know a few tricks of the trade, it’s time to get on the green. And whatever you do, don’t give up. There are many great golfers out there, but they all started in the same place — standing on the green, with a club in their hands, practicing until they got it right.
