Three Key Problems for Women {Golfers

By: Jim O Connell

|Golf Players}
Each golfer has special problems, and golf training aides are intended to handle those problems. In researching the areas that women golfers have essentially the most difficulties, we learned a number of unexpected things. In addressing the major challenges to women golfers, these issues will not be inevitably unattainable to overcome as a result of physical limits, but together with some facts could be dealt with.
The three areas that we feel are the major issues to women golfers include putting, not enough driving yardage, and general club head velocity. Through some knowledge on what you are trying to accomplish along with a bit of training, we think that women golfers can demonstrate progress in all three areas.
1. Putting. This is probably surprising of the foremost problems to women golfers to many people, since putting wouldn't appear to require power, that is taken for granted as the largest help for men. But in PGA versus LPGA statistics, men are statistically better than women in putting, and women are improved in hitting greens in regulation. So why are women poorer at putting? In a ensuing article, I will go into putting at greater length, but two things straight away come to attention: they too frequently utilize a putter that is very long for them, and they don't take putting training seriously enough. These two components clearly don't hold true with professional golfers, but for amateurs if they'd get fitted for a putter that's the correct length and work on stroke mechanics at the practice green, we can all but guarantee their scores will plunge.
2. Lack of driving distance. Women's professional golfers are getting more into physical exercise, and their driving distances have gone up correspondingly. This has probably not occurred to a great degree with recreational golf players. The places to work would be the core, the abs, lower back and hamstrings. At the end of this short article we'll tell you on where to locate some excellent tools to meet these ends. Additionally, learning to utilize the power of centrifugal force is an even bigger contributor, which has as well been described as "let the club do the work". There are some teaching tools available which will enable you to get a "feel" for producing this centrifugal force.
3. Despite which club you use, they all go about the same distance. The cause for this is lack of club head velocity, and as a long-time golfer, I've noticed that my long irons haven't any additional distance than my middle irons as club head pace has diminished. Club head speed can be improved with work, but father time always marches on. My answer is rescue clubs and being refitted with fairway woods. Another tip to answer the challenge of women golfers is improving ball contact. Statistics show that for every half inch you strike the ball from your sweet spot, you lose ten yards. By just becoming more consistent with your ball striking will offer more distance.
These key challenges to women golfers could be overcome by practice. Furthermore, women in my observations appear to be further inclined than men to give in to problematic shots, like deep rough or sand shots. I'll confess, there are lots of times I think identically, but I know that will not help me the next time I'm confronted with a similar shot. But then again, I do think men can learn from women in not at all times taking things on the course too seriously. A solid theme for another day!
