Beyond dispatching his professional obligations, Tim Salvesen enjoys a multitude of hobbies, including golf. The following tips could prove helpful for beginning golfers.

Before getting into stance, it is important to align the clubface properly by situating it directly behind the ball and in line with the target hole.

Select the right type of club, depending mostly on the type of approach. Natural shot tendencies, wind, and obstacles in the landing area also affect club selection.

Modify your stance to accommodate the selected club.

Grip the club’s handle tightly.

When there is wind, hit the ball in the direction of the wind, not against it.

Try to hit the ball to the upper or pro side of the hole, as that increases the likelihood of hitting the target area.

When in a bunker, hit downward, striking behind the ball to let the sand lift it up and out onto the green.

Do not undermine chipping.
