6 Golf Tips Every Beginner Should Know

3. HOW TO SPIN THE BALL

The video above shows you how to put spin on a golf ball; and that includes both back spin and side spin. The best way to increase back spin is to make sure that the angle of attack of the club into the ball is nice and steep as opposed to shallow.

Step 1. Increasing back spin involves actually putting a little bit more weight on the left hand side and keeping it there throughout the swing. Open the club and body slightly. What this does is it allows the club to come into the ball in a slightly steeper angle of attack. And because we open the face, it stops the club digging into the ground.

Step 3. Break the wrist immediately on the back stroke.

Step 4. Make sure your hands leave the club heading into impact and just trusting that your correct set up and swing will produce the desired effect.

Step 5. Make sure you catch the ball before the ground and hit the ball with an accelerating blow. To do this, take a relatively short back swing and make sure accelerate through the ball all the way to the finish.

How to achieve side spin on a golf ball:

To curve a ball from right to left, cut slightly across the golf ball. To do this from our normal set up position, all you need to do is pull back the left foot, just a touch, open up the club face a little bit and then make a normal swing across the new body line. And after opening up the club face, just remember to re-grip it.

If you want to curve the ball from right to left, all you have to do is cut across the golf ball the opposite way. To do this, draw your right foot back slightly and close the club face a little bit, remembering to re-grip it once we close the club face.
