How To Get More Birdies On The Golf Course: 5 Useful Tricks

Many golfers wonder what they are doing wrong on the golf course when it comes to birdies. You may notice while playing with other golfers you’re doing almost the same thing as them. Except, they are making more birdies when it comes to score recovery. What do you need to do to get more birdies? Here are some tips to consider when practicing on the course that may help you pinpoint areas in your technique to improve.

  1. Know the distance to hit the ball. Understanding distance is important but many golfers don’t take time to review this element. If you have a distance in mind to hit the ball to it may give you a realistic chance of making a good shot. Think about your ability to hit the ball and whether your skill level is up for challenge of meeting that distance perfectly.
  2. Know the right club to play with. Some golfers use the wrong club or they don’t realize they could actually go up an iron. Think about the shot you are trying to achieve. You can practice using different clubs to get an idea of what the outcome would be before taking your real shot.
  3. Have an effective technique for short approach shots. Short distances may seem like an easier way to play but even then some players get too anxious and end up missing the shot. Think about what you want to happen but consider a method or technique that will help you execute the shot with less tension. In some cases it comes down to having more tension that necessary or lack of focus that leads to missing the shot.
  4. Have proper focus. You should focus on the task instead of the outcome. You know what you want to achieve, but think about how you will do it or what you think is best to complete the shot. Some think about it too much and when they miss their shot it shows.
  5. Have good tempo and speed in your hit. Good speed and tempo behind the shot is important. This coordinates with your swing and stroke action along with distance judgment. If you lack one of these elements your tempo and speed could come off too fast or too slow resulting in fewer birdies.
