Be Prepared To Play Your Stroke.

“Playing golf is good to walk fast, but when you get to your ball, you take the time to prepare the coup.”

Currently, in many golf courses, slow game situations can be easily avoided simply attending to basic considerations are given.

In informal parties other than golf championships, it is not necessary to strictly follow the Rules of Golf that say they always play first player farthest from the hole, always comes out the player who made fewer strokes on the previous hole first, etc.

Players in a group can agree on the following actions in order to speed up the game in an informal party (not championships):

  • – A player may play as you reach your ball (though not appropriate to play), provided they do not interfere with the preparation or the blow of another playmate.
  • – In the tees you can proceed in the same way: if a player comes in advance of the teeing their peers, you can place your ball and go, although it is not their turn.
  • – Leave the bag sticks on the side of the green on the way to the next tee is located. In this way, the player ends up kicking and leaves the green, picks up his bag on the way to the next tee. It is also good to have ordered the bag sticks, each stick always in place. So it is not lost so much time looking for the stick to play the next shot.   
  • – It is very important to visually control the ball playmates and help in your search if that is not. This gesture saves a lot of time spent searching balls and is also a sign of fellowship that all players should have.
  • – Treat yourself to turn off your mobile phone. Travel enjoys golf and forgets the work or duties during that time. Your mind will thank you for paying more later. Also, if you attend your mobile, you delay group play considerably.

The sum of all these details is a significant time-saving at the end of the 18 holes. A reasonable way to play 18 holes of golf in the long run (a golf par 3, 4 and 5) time is 3 hours to 3 hours 45 minutes.

We must always replenish chops, fixing divots and rake bunkers, as indicated by the rules of etiquette.

How To Mark Your Ball On Green.

When the ball is on the green, it should be marked with a small coin or a marker to lift and clean before shooting. You have to place the mark just behind the ball and then pick up the ball. When it’s your turn to kick, you must place the ball on the green in its original place before picking up the brand. If your ball mark is or may be in the line of putt of a playmate, you have to ask if it bothers your brand and if you want to change the placemark.

If so, you have to take a fixed reference such as a tree, a bunker or other object and move the mark in that direction the space of a head of your putt, or two if necessary, removing the mark line putt companion.

Then, when it’s your turn to kick, you have to replenish your brand in its original place before placing your ball and proceed to boot. If not, you will incur a penalty or even disqualification.

Remember also walk the green trying not to step on the line of putt players or players of your party.

How To Read The Fall Of Green.

When our ball is on the green, it is important to make a good reading or appreciation of falls or slopes that have the green to make the least possible strokes putt.

The key to correctly determine the falls of green is to establish a routine. This routine begins when we approach the green and look at the overall drop of the green. If we have to wait kicked our colleagues, we can go looking the fall of our putt, provided they do not disturb the development of the game of our compañeros.También we can look at the falls taking his balls.

When our turn comes, we began evaluating the distance from our putt, if you drop side is up or down and if the green can be fast or slow. The direction of the grass also influences the ball drop, and the height of the grass influences the speed. Keep in mind that on the greens where the ball faster wheel, the fall takes the ball is more pronounced when the ball is losing strength, especially if the putt is uphill.

Plumb technique is widely used by all types of players to see the falls on the green. It consists of holding the putt at the top so that it is completely vertical. What we put between us and part of the green that we see the fall. In this position, the vertical bat will help us see the slope of the green.

Once we have made a decision about the fall, we firmly believe in it. The first impression is usually the most successful. We stand, do some test swings, we looked at the hole and hit the ball safely. It is always good to spend a little hole, because if the ball does not come, can not enter.

” In the green, we have to kick relatively fast; the whole process can take us between 30 and 45 seconds.”

How to strike a Bunker.

After playing a golf shot from a bunker, it is necessary to leave the sand bunker in good condition for players who are playing behind. There is raking the whole area where you have left traces and marks in the sand, and even raking marks in the sand that had another former player.
