It is important to not talk on your cell phone while you are golfing. Outside conversations, ringing phones and distracted golfers can lead to a very poor round of golf.

Improve your short game by visiting some three-par golf courses in your area. Many golfers are too focused on taking that long perfect drive off the tee and neglect to put enough effort into improving their short game. Three-par golf courses can be even more challenging than regular golf courses. If you don’t make it onto the putting green with your drive, then you either have to chip the ball in for a birdie or make your putt on the first attempt in order to make par. Improving your short game can drastically reduce your handicap.
If you are planning a golf vacation for a group of people, be sure to choose a golfing destination that offers a variety of courses. By doing this, everyone in your group will be able to match up with a course that suits his or her abilities. That will make for a happy golf vacation experience.
If you try to be on-plane at the top of your golf swing, you will be able to guarantee a solid ball strike as well as have much greater accuracy. Place your forearm so that it is parallel to you spine. Also make sure to rotate your shoulders into the back swing.

So, when you switch sides of the tee, it forces you to focus on something new and gives you a different perspective on the hole.
To prepare for a golf tournament, the day before you should get some light exercise, such as swimming. Get a massage or spend the evening in your massage chair relaxing. Turn in early. The next day, begin your day with stretching and a light jog or walk. Shower, focus and head out to win your tournament.
