Always focus all of your concentration on the next shot. Don’t think about your past shots or the water hazard you’re going to have to face; don’t get distracted from the very next shot that’s up. When you do make a mistake, just take note of what you did wrong. From there make the changes necessary to succeed; you don’t want to let them consume you.
Hold your golf clubs with neutral grips. When you grip your golf club tighter than you should, your shots will tend to hook right. If you hold too loose, the ball will likely go to the left. You can make adjustments to your grip according to the direction of each shot. If you are having a bad round on the course, you must learn to control your emotions to end up with a respectable score. When you become angry, you will shoot too many aggressive shots, which will lead to sending drives and putts, far off course. Take a deep breath and regroup after a bad shot. Using an unnatural stance will be detrimental to your game. One way to find a comfortable groove, is to practice different stances without using a club. Stand up while flexing your knees, bend them slightly at your waist and have your arms drop right on your front. Then, put your hands together, palms facing inward, and hold that pose. That is the natural stance you should take. If you feel awkward in this position, you are doing something wrong.
If you feel that your swing is too fast and the head of the club is not properly flowing through the swing, a simple solution is to try relaxing your grip. This is a easy way to make the club feel heavier all the way through the swing and it can also help you focus.
