    10 easy ways you can improve your golf game

    For any keen golfer, hitting that perfect drive, iron approach or pitch is one of the sweetest things the great game of golf can bring. With our 10 step guide to improving all elements of your golf game, you’ll be driving like Duvall and putting like Poulter in no time!

    To really enjoy your round, the centre of the fairway or green is where you want to be. Unfortunately, just as common – if not more so – is the immense frustration that a hooked, topped or scuffed shot can bring. No-one likes to spend their time trudging through the rough or bunkers looking for their ball, much less on a world-class resort. To help you progress, we have gathered 10 expert tips to help you get back on track.


    1. POSTURE BEFORE STRIKING THE BALL
    Before you even think about hitting the ball from the tee, there are a whole host of things to get right to give you the best chance of getting the ball where you want it. Width of stance, distance between club and body, bend in your knees and overall body posture all play a role. Too much or too little of any of them and you’ll spend more time in the rough stuff than you want.

    2. POSITION OF THE BALL IN YOUR STANCE
    At what stage in your swing the ball is hit is as important as the swing itself. A perfect swing with the ball too far forward will result in less of the club making meaningful contact, too far back and you won’t get the required loft. As a rule, the ball should be nearer your front foot when using a driver, and more central when using your irons.

    3. KEEP YOUR HEAD DOWN
    The temptation follow your ball down the fairway almost before you’ve hit it is strong, but keeping your eyes down on the ball until your follow-through is complete is vital. Move your head too early, and all the hard work on your posture and swing up to that point will most likely be wasted.

    4. ROTATE YOUR TORSO, NOT JUST YOUR ARMS
    It would seem self-explanatory that a good golf swing generates power from the whole body, not from a rigid torso with the arms doing all the work, but insufficient body rotation is a major cause of an inefficient golf swing. To get the extra yards that’ll give you the chance to birdie that par 5, you’ll need your left shoulder to rotate round to be almost above your right foot on the backswing, and vice-versa on the downswing. Do this, and you’ll be on the putting surface in no time.

    5. MASTER THE ART OF PITCHING
    Getting to within striking distance of the green is only worth so much if you then spend the next 4 shots either criss-crossing the green with too much power, or flopping short with too little. The art and swing of chipping is very different to that of driving from the tee or with an iron from the fairway. 2 big differences are that your club should never go above parallel with the ground on the backswing, and your hands should always stay ahead of the ball and club.

    6. DEVELOP A ROUTINE FOR PUTTING
    “Drive for show, putting for dough” is one of the oft-repeated maxims of golf, and its true! Getting close to the hole, nerves and a whole raft of other factors can reduce even the greatest players to jelly. One way to minimise this is to create a putting routine that works for you. Be it breathing pattern, practice swing or visualising the shot, find a routine that works and use it every time. Remember, when it comes to putting, there’s no substitute for practice, practice and more practice!

    7. PREPARE FOR THE WORST: MASTER BUNKER SHOTS
    Ideally it won’t come to this, but realistically, especially on the more rugged links courses of Scotland, there’s a good chance you’ll find yourself in a sandy predicament at least once or twice. A couple of simple tips will increase accuracy out of the sand. Firstly, do not, ever hit the ball first. Aim a couple of inches short of the ball to avoid overshooting the target and probably ending up with another bunker shot! Secondly, keep your weight on your front foot throughout the swing and your left arm straight. Then watch the sand – and your ball – gracefully float out of that bunker!

    8. KEEP A TRACK OF YOUR WEAKNESSES
    Whether you play every day, every weekend or just every so often, if you want to see an improvement over time you’ll need to keep a track of your round-by-round performance to work out what needs the most work. How many fairways did you hit from the tee, how many greens-in-regulation did you get, or how many times did you take 2, 3 or more putts once you got onto the green? All important statistics, and worth noting down – as well as your overall score – to get better over time.

    9. DON’T UNDERESTIMATE THE FOLLOW-THROUGH
    A great golf swing, whatever the shot, doesn’t stop once you’ve hit the ball. A good follow through, with your hands ending up above your left shoulder, and your right shoulder below the left means you’ve hit the ball well, in the direction you wanted. Low hands and a right shoulder that’s not lower than the left usually indicates an element of your swing isn’t working, meaning a less than perfect connection between club and ball.

    10. IMAGINE A SET OF TRAIN TRACKS...
    This analogy works for the pros, so why can’t it work for you. The best clubs and the smoothest swing will all count for nothing if your body orientation in relation to the ball is wrong. For almost every shot, remember this one golden rule. Imagine your feet are on one train track, and the ball on the other. Angle your body, and therefore these “train tracks” towards where you want to hit the ball, and keep your feet parallel to the line of the ball. Not facing towards or away, or expect to get out the gardening equipment to dig your ball out from the rough!

    LANGER SET TO DEFEND SENIOR OPEN TITLE AT SUNNINGDALE

    Bernhard Langer will bid to capture The Senior Open for a fifth time when he defends his title at Sunningdale Golf Club from July 22-25.
    The evergreen German made history at Royal Lytham & St Annes in 2019 as he claimed The Senior Open crown for the fourth time, one more than Gary Player and Tom Watson with whom he had previously shared the record for most victories.
    His triumph two years ago was his 11th Senior Major Championship, the most of anyone in the history of the game, and he also set a new benchmark as the oldest player to win a Senior Major, aged 61.

    Brandlink Golf Tees Off Leeds United Business Club Partnership

    Golf Company links up with local Football Club


    BrandLink Golf has celebrated its Yorkshire roots by partnering with the Leeds United Business Club. The company offers unique online retail services for golf products, coupled with an event management service and exclusively representing several brands within the UK. Utilising the large audience of sports fans at Elland Road, the business is looking to showcase its unique range of services to more than 30,000 fans every matchday.


    The business was formed by Andy Broughton in 2017 following encouragement from professional golfing friends, having previously worked as a caddy. With an extensive list of contacts throughout the sport, Brandlink began by organising corporate and charity golf events, before expanding into the retail market.


    Given the opportunity to represent a variety of golfing brands in the UK, the company offer a range of products spanning from custom-fit clubs to spike-less golf shoes. Broughton explained why he believes joining the Leeds United Business Club will benefit the business:
    “I know from personal experience of going to Elland Road year after year, of seeing the companies around the stadium, that over time you know exactly who the business is. I spoke to a few people who were also members, and everyone said it had worked for them.

    “Because we’re a bit different to most companies, we’ve got more chance of catching people’s eye if golf is something that they’re interested in. I’ve had a couple of emails come through the website that have said they didn’t realise anyone related to golf was involved with the Business Club and they wanted to do business together. It helps the company gain brand recognition and brand respectability.”


    The Leeds United Business Club is formed through a partnership between Eleven Sports Media and the Football Club, providing businesses with opportunity to showcase their brand throughout every home game. Brandlink see the company’s logo displayed on both pitch and crowd-facing digital LED screens.


    In addition, the branding also features on StadiumTV screens within the concourses and StatTracker social media content that is shared to Leeds United’s official feeds. This approach allows the business to consistently engage with the fanbase.


    Through becoming involved with the Leeds United, Brandlink are looking to attract both casual and committed golfers. Supplying a range of everyday products, such as trolleys and markers, Brandlink also arrange for any customer interested in purchasing bespoke clubs to be flown to their client in Germany. A committed Leeds United fan, Broughton is hopeful that the Business Club can help the business reach like-minded people:
    “The challenge is to raise the profile of the brand. It’s been a learning curve, in terms of brands and products, to give more choice to customers and how to market to the right sort of people. We’re probably a smaller business than most Business Club partners.


    “The decision to join the Leeds United Business Club was taken with my heart because I truly believe it will be good for the business. I went to my first games in about 1977/78 with my Dad. I’m very passionate about Leeds United and I know that the supporters always look favourably on any businesses associated with the club.”

    TOMO GOLF JOINS THE BRANDLINK GOLF PORTFOLIO!

    If you love golf and have an Instagram account, you no doubt have seen the recent buzz surrounding Tomo Golf Shoes. One of the hottest new spikeless golf shoes to hit the scene in 2019, Tomo Golf is changing the way golfers embrace style and comfort on the course!


    You will love Tomo Golf Shoes if…..


    You value Comfort – It goes without saying that comfort is a huge priority when selecting golf shoes. Golfers walk 5-7 miles for 4-5 hours every time they tee it up, and you will be hard pressed to find a more comfortable golf shoe on the market than Tomo. The key factor in Tomo shoes is the lightweight, stretchy knit material. The knit material is made from a quality fabric and is extremely flexible, allowing the material to mold around each individual’s foot. This is a great feature as golfers with both wide and narrow feet will be able to use these shoes. The knit material also allows the shoe to breathe, as air passes through it cooling the feet and reducing moisture. Each shoe weights only 9.8 ounces which makes Tomo one of the lightest golf shoes available.


    You love Fashion – Tomo Volume 1.0 currently offers four colours (Stone, Charcoal, Sand, and Forest). These colours represent several elements of the earth and give tribute to the company’s core principle of using a socially responsible method to produce the shoes. With these minimalistic and simple colour patterns, the shoes easily match with almost any outfit. Each time we wore these shoes out on the course, our playing partners immediately commented on how stylish the shoes were and how fashionable they looked. (Tomo Volume 2.0 shoes will be debuting in 2019 and feature a few more colour options)


    You value Quality – When you unpackage your Tomo Golf shoes and hold them in your hands, you immediately know you are looking at something special. A lot of work goes into crafting these shoes and the supreme quality and craftsmanship is what will separate Tomo away from its competition in the coming years.


    You need one shoe for the entire day – We all live busy lives. Imagine slipping on a pair of shoes and taking your dog for a walk, dropping the kids off at school, attending your weekly sales meeting, playing an afternoon nine, and grabbing dinner at your favourite restaurant……all while wearing the same pair of stylish shoes. Tomo Golf shoes are just that, a perfect shoe for the modern man & woman that look good both on and off the course!
