Golf – Beginner Basics III The Long Game
The long game refers to your drives (shots off the
tee) and fairway shots; everything short of the shots
you make to get onto the green.
Each hole has a different difficulty level, different
par and distinctive hazards, so instructing you to use
your Driver on every tee would be blatantly wrong.
This is something you will learn over time as you
learn the various shots you make according to the
club, the placement of the ball and your personal
Generally speaking, the lower the club number, the
longer and lower your ball will go. A 4-iron shot will
travel long and low and will most likely roll, whereas
a 9-iron shot will have much more loft and go less
distance both in the air and on the ground.
The professionals on television make it look so easy;
they consistently hit the ball long and straight and
never miss-hit the ball making it dribble ten feet, or
completely miss the ball.
Driving is very important to the game, and many hours
spent at the driving range will help improve your
distance. Experiment with the same club to see what
works for you if you move the ball forward or backward
in your stance. Take a lesson, if possible, and learn
the proper swing from the beginning.
Mastering the long game helps you get to the green in
fewer strokes, keeping your score and frustration
level down. Remember that it takes a long time to
learn consistency and remember to have fun!
