I do not want to be too technical about it, my mission is to help you start and improve your golf game. Read on and have an open mind.
Understanding the game
You will need to know that your goal is to send the ball to the hole. However, you may ask why then do players take so much time on the tee? This is because you will need to learn the swing to send the ball to the hole.
The golf course has many holes you need to cover and the distance between each hole could be somewhere from 100 to 600 yards. You will need to learn how to swing the ball, possibly reach the level of hitting the ball to travel at 100 KPH. To do this you will need to practice.
One equipment you need to be comfortable with is your golf club. Do you wonder why a golf bag contains numerous golf clubs? This is not only to give the caddy a job; it is because in one single game, you will need all the different kinds of golf club. Types of golf club necessary to play a golf game are the putter, iron, wood, wedge and the driver.
All of them play a particular part in the game and you will need to understand how each of them work.
Let me tell you at this point that many beginners mistakably purchase costly golf clubs and this is not necessary. You only need a golf club that you will be comfortable with, thus if you must buy, buy your golf clubs intelligently.
You will need to give fluidity to your swing and if you are angry, frustrated or too excited, you will not be able to deliver the swing that will lead to the hole. Patience is therefore necessary; you may be mad at your poor swing but take time to relax and try again.
There is no overnight success in golf. Thus, to execute that perfect swing, you will need to practice. Practice without the ball and practice with the ball. You may be able to execute the swing perfectly without the ball, but executing it with the ball can make the difference. Thus, you will need a lot of practice to perform that swing you see on tournaments.
I hope that the above will help you begin playing golf. Have fun and see you on the green.
