Tiger Woods is the undisputed king of professional golf. With a smooth
technique you could set your watch by, he makes winning those
championships look like a walk in the park.

Imagine if you could sit with Tiger for a few minutes and pick his brain
to help improve your game. Here are some great golf tips from Tiger
Woods.

It's All About Rhythm

Every player has their own natural rhythm. Some players are energetic and
full of motion; others are stoic and deep in concentration.

Tiger says that when he's playing his best, everything he does is just
second nature. He just goes with the flow, and there's little else
involved. That's because he's found just the right groove that suits his
natural rhythm.

If the rhythm's off, Tiger misses a swing or two. When things are flowing
for him, he has to work a little to get it back into a natural rhythm.

So, how do you learn to keep your natural rhythm? There are a few ways
Tiger suggests to help you find your groove and keep it.

Stick To Your Routine

Rhythm and consistency are important, so how you get ready both
physically and mentally for the game is essential. Tiger has a practice
routine that he does before every single game. He uses the same clubs,
and the last club he uses for his pre-game warm-up is the one he plans to
use for the first hole.

The point isn't to practice swinging, but to get into your groove.

The First Hole Is The Most Important

Long before he swings for that first hole, Tiger plans the whole game
ahead. He prepares himself for the game mentally and emotionally. This
involves relaxation, and deciding his game plan beforehand.

An awkward, uncertain first shot is a sure-fire rhythm-killer.

Keep Things Steady

To keep your rhythm going, you have to keep the tempo steady. When you
get stressed, you start to speed things up. All that nervous energy makes
you hurry to the next hole, and you end up making silly mistakes you
wouldn't have made otherwise.

The next   time you watch Tiger play, pay attention to the way he walks to
the next   hole. Even after a great shot, you'll never see him rush on to
the next   one. He'll pump his fist, smile, and stroll to the next hole
with the   same leisurely pace.

Tiger recommends a good pre-routine warm-up that helps you get into a
relaxed frame of mind. This will get you started on the right foot. For

Posture Means Perfect

When asked for practical golf tips, Tiger Woods always mentions posture.
Tiger always stands straight and tall, a decent distance from the ball so
that he can keep his chin up. Lots of golfers (including Tiger when he
was a beginner) put their address position too close to the ball, and end
up having to bow their head down too much. Tiger says to keep a good
distance away so you don't have to lean over the ball.

Tiger Woods is not only one of the best players, he's also one of the
most reflective. Perhaps the key to his success is his ability to look at
his mistakes and shortcomings, and work to improve them, instead of
getting frustrated. This is why his golf tips are so helpful to his fans.
When you blow it, think about why you did it. Then, correct it next time,
and you'll see improvement.
