Golf Swing Tips: Don’t Fudge When Stepping Off Yardage

driving a golf ball straighterOne of the best golf swing tips is to not fudge when stepping off yardage.

The reason why this is one of the best golf swing tips is you must know the precise yardage to your target to execute the perfect golf swing.

Many golfers believe when they step off 100 paces it equates to 100 yards.

The truth be known, when some golfers step off 100 paces, it equates nearer to 80 than to 100 yards.

Unless average golfers really stretch their stride when stepping off yardage, the number of paces will be considerable more than the actual yardage.

For example, at my age and condition (well past an invitation to join AARP), I hit my lob wedge approximately 80 yards at sea level during the summer months.

However, when I step off the distance of my lob wedge, it is more   like 100 paces instead of the actual 80 yards.

Similarly, my full wedge shots at sea level during the summer months average approximately 110 yards. However when I step off the distance of my full wedge shots it takes approximately 130 steps.

Nowadays, many golfers have GPS range finders.

However, in many instances the rules do not allow such range finders, even assuming the golf course has GPS adaptability.

As a consequence, golfers must rely on the number of paces between their ball and the target. In deriving at such number they cannot fudge when stepping off the paces between the two.

They need the precise number of paces for the yardage between their ball and the target in order to hit a ball the precise yardage.

One of the best ways to calculate the number of paces for the actual yardage of each club is to play a few practice rounds on a par three course that has an abundance of holes ranging from 70 up to 150 yards.

Simply take a notepad and count the paces from the yardage marker on the tee box to the middle of the green on different holes to determine the paces needed for specific yardages.

You then should know the number of paces for each of your scoring clubs.

You then should also agree these are some of the best golf swing tips ever offered.
