This Girl Proves You Should Learn Golf in Reverse
I don’t know if we can even give an A for effort here, folks. The Hooters girl is hot for sure, but her golf swing is down right ugly. Maybe it is the shorts she’s wearing, yeah that’s it. Those tight shorts could be restricting her movement. Whatever the reason, she completely misses the ball when she swings. Yet, before you pass judgment on this club swinging vixen, let’s remember a few things. It takes, on average, five years to learn the game of golf… if you go at your own pace.
This according to Troy Voyanos of Hitting it Solid. He says that you could learn much faster with lessons, though. Also, remember that most of the toughest shots in the game are not made from where the Hooters beauty is standing. That first drive is important, but it is not the best way to improve your overall score. Most newbie golfers tend to focus on trying to crush the ball 300 yards when that is completely unnecessary. There is a much quicker way to improve your game.
How to Make Par Quickly
Most of your shots will be made from under 100 yards. Keeping that in mind, the easiest way to improve your score is to focus on your short game. All of a sudden, those par three holes become pretty important! To start off, focus on your putting skills. Once you can shave a stroke or two off of your putting green, move to your irons. Seven, eight, and nine irons are what you need to master in order to really keep your short game tight. Nothing beats the feeling you get when you place the ball on the green with one stroke of your 7 iron. (more…)
You may want to spend some time on a short course before you do that, though. Short courses are typically nine holes or less, and most of the time they can be played with short ir
You may want to spend some time on a short course before you do that, though. Short courses are typically nine holes or less, and most of the time they can be played with short irons, wedges, and putters. These will really help dial your short game in. Before long you will be making par on these courses pretty easily. When you can do this repeatedly, then you can spend some time improving your drive.
Making the Practice Range Count
Before you even try knocking the ball down the fairway 300 yards, head to the driving range first. Learn to make peace with the driving range. You are going to have some swings that are more than ugly; they will be down right fugly. That’s fine, you are not there to impress anyone. Just focus on making contact with the ball.
Once you start to tag it consistently, work on your stance, swing, and back swing. Mastering all of these components takes a lot of time. How much time, no one knows. Just take a nod from Arnold Palmer. He says the longer he plays, the luckier he gets. If you have played for any length of time, you know that to be true. You remember what it was like the first time you swung and missed. Maybe you did not go heels up like our girl, but you came close. Yet, in time, you got it and the cursing rants were able to subside a bit. Well, except for that time you threw your clubs in the lake and twisted that one shaft around a tree. Other than those lapses, though, your game has improved.
So maybe we should not be so quick to laugh at our cute brunette. So what if she side steps and loses it, tripping over the distance marker? So what if she swings and generates more air than a warehouse on high? If we were able to see the first time you swung a club, I bet you wouldn’t be laughing as hard. On the contrary, I think a few punches might fly. Heads would duck and curse words would fly. Lifelong friendships would be called off. All of that drama and you don’t even look half as good as she does! To that end, this really teaches us one thing about golf… the struggle is real. It is absolutely real. Now you feel like saluting her, don’t you? Go ahead, you should. She deserves it after all of the laughing you had at her expense!
