Let’s Play Golf: Beginner Basics

We’re gearing up for a week full of fun events to start off the season. From May 1 – 5, participating courses across the nation will be hosting events, offering specials and more for all skill levels of golfers. If you’re new to the game, or know someone who wants to start, Bring a Beginner Tuesday on May 2 is the perfect opportunity to tee it up. And, we’re sharing some helpful tips from Golf Channel Academy to help you or your friend get started.


In this video, Golf Channel Academy lead coach Chris O’Connell shares three basic fundamentals—how to grip the club properly, swing on the correct plane and finish like a pro—every beginning golfer should know when teeing it up for the first time.
