Unless you’re one of the experts giving these lessons, you could probably use a little help with your golf game. The weekend is coming and that means it’s time to play some golf! It also means it would be in your best interest to brush up on your game or face the consequences and ridicule from the other members of your foursome.

Fret not, hackers, duffers and less-than-good golfers of the world, Back9Network is here to help. This week’s Performance Friday comes courtesy of the folks at Callaway Golf.

Putting: The Little Red Wagon Tip
“If you try and pull a little red wagon, it’ll come directly behind you. If you try and push it, it’ll often go off quick and [it] turns…think about that in terms of the putting stroke.”

Driving: Longer Drives Thru Lag
“I really rely on creating lag to hit the ball further.”

Short Game: Getting Out of Bunkers With Ease
“Take more sand in front of the ball than behind the ball.”

Strategy: Getting Over First Tee Jitters
“Hit some shots at the end of your range session that simulates the shot you’ll need to hit on the first tee.”

Check back every Friday for a new batch of the best golf tips on the web to help you get ready for the weekend and may your drives be straight and your tales be tall.
