Psychological preparation for golf

Some golf players take huge amounts of time to prepare for action. It s a double sword policy in this game. Advantage is that you take your time and start to act only when you know you are ready. Problem occurs when you have to use rest of the time properly. It is so easy to fall in entrapment of over analyzing. When doing so one can easily use the proper connection between mind and body.
It is important to be systematic and thorough. You look at your putt from behind the ball. You take time study it,move around, measure in your head and calculate. It is routine any golf player should posses. If, at some point, you introduce other factors like wind, grain, final outcome and so on you may loose yourself in abundance of obstacles. Be reasonable. Acknowledge all factor, follow your instinct and trust yourself. too much doubt is lethal for performance.
If you have a number of thins you want to achieve with one swing and if they are all simultaneously floating while you prepare to hit the ball-no good. Try not to do everything that is in the book. Focus, simplify and go.
Take your mind to nice and quiet place. Do not over analyze and don t exhaust yourself with wish list.
Some people silently repeat their mantra. if that suits you go for it. If you prefer something quite, soothing and no so 'exotic' concentrate on your breathing.
Whatever maintains your balance stick with it.

Golf for beginers

Even though your potential for the game of golf is indeed significant do not rush and buy the most expensive equipment immediately. Golf is complicated sport and requires many pieces of different clubs. Majority of manufacturers will advertise last technology equipment. Without much doubt their products are fine but not exactly what you need to get.
Good start is to look for outdated or well preserved second hand equipment.(Google, CraigList to eBay ,garage sales and so on) If you find good second hand pieces you will save hunderds and hunderds of dollars.

Sometimes it is about the club you really want to have. In that case just wait few days after realising the product to the market and than start your search.

Same goes for golf balls. Instead of buying Pro V 1 (almost 5$ a piece) purchase Top Flite-if you get 15 of them you end up paying a buck for piece. As a beginer just think how many of them you are going to lose while practicing and how much sense it makes.

As a beginer place your playing schedule in the afternoon and dusk. saturday and Sunday mornings are always booked and very expensive. Your search should be based on easier time to get and lawer price to pay. There are some places known for their last minute discounts. Sometimes you can get a tee time there and enjoy

Be careful around pro shops. Thay are known for their over priced lists of products. Gloves, ball marker tools, tees and so on you can buy at Wal Mart or Target for 50% less.

When you are done with the equipment take your time, learn the basics of sport and you will have a blast.
