Personally I remember how hard I thought it was when I first started out playing golf. I looked around both in bookstores and online for basic golf tips for beginners, but it’s not that easy.
Yes, I found some tips…
But I was looking for simple golf tips and for someone that was new to the game I found it extremely hard to value the tips I stumbled across. With all the free online golf tips it was hard for me to put them into context and to understand the basic swing mechanics.
When I tried to swing better I often felt like I was on the how to play golf for dummies series and it wasn’t fun at all. Today I'm very glad that I didn’t throw away my clubs, for after some hard times I finally broke through…

The resources and tips we will cover in this article will help you gain more knowledge and set you on track for future improvements. These free golf tips for beginners won’t make you a scratch golfer, but they point you in the right direction and the effortless and natural swing will be within reach.

To me every round of golf is a good round. I often think about Mr Hogan’s saying about smelling the roses…
You should feel fortunate if you are able to play golf.
But I know that’s not what you were asking. You want to know what a good golf beginner score is in terms of strokes.
Here you shouldn’t put too much pressure on yourself though, remember to smell the roses…
According to this article (referencing National Golf Foundation data) a whopping 45% of golfers average more than 100 strokes per round. If you shoot double bogey on every hole of a par 72 course your score will be 108. We all started from the beginning in our golf evolution and if you can shoot a 108, you can play your way around the course. And from there your scores will be lower the more you play.
These were a few free golf tips for beginners and they do point you in the right direction on your quest to a proper swing. However, it’s hard to learn the fundamentals when you are looking in different places and finding a piece of the puzzle here and another piece there.
When you are ready for some more golf swing tips for beginners, my suggestion is that you sign up with a local teaching pro or for a basic online swing course. Doing it this way will better help you draw the full picture.
