You and I share something in common. We both want to improve our golf game.

That doesn’t mean I can give you one good tip that will dramatically improve your golf skills. Instead, think of these tips as tools you and I can use along the way towards improvement and more enjoyment.



Professionals know everything they need to know, but what about us?

Thankfully, there are a lot of tips for beginners and Mattis from Fast Learners compiled five excellent ones for you.

Let’s dive in.

1. Choose essential golf equipment that's right for you

Let's first start with the tools that are the most obvious, our equipment. There are many tools involved, but we'll focus on the most important ones for now, your golf clubs.

You could buy the latest golf club with the latest technology or a branded golf club with the best reviews.

But what you need is a golf club that is right for you and your current skills. The brand and price tag are not your main concern right now.

Secondly, you don’t need a lot of clubs. Many professionals have taken years to build up their collection of clubs. Each club serves a particular purpose. You only need few essential clubs when starting out, such as a driver, a putter, and a sand wedge.

These three clubs will get you through any situation that you’ll find yourself in when starting out. As your skills improve, you can always add specialty clubs
