The Grupo Mayan professionals are frequently asked to help beginning golfers understand the game. They work with beginners to help them with their golf swings, learn the ins and outs of the golf game, and learn the etiquette of golf.
The Grupo Mayan golf professionals say that one of the most important lessons they share with all of our guests is etiquette on the putting green. After a long drive to the green many golfers relax once they arrive at the green, especially if they met up with other golfers.
Here are tips shared by the Grupo Mayan golf professionals on putting green etiquette.
- The first thing every golfer should know is that it is his responsibility to repair any marks he leaves on the green say the Grupo Mayan golf professionals. It is important to leave the green in good playing conditions for the players who come next. If you see divots left by previous golfers it is a great idea to repair them also urge the Grupo Mayan professionals.
- Before you leave the green use your putter to tap down the spike marks left by your golf shoes. The Grupo Mayan golf professionals say that many golfers do not realize that their shoes cause damage to putting greens.
- The Placement of balls on the green is extremely important. Grupo Mayan professionals urge golfers to make sure they are aware of ball placement. The line the golf ball follows to the hole is called the putting and golfers must stay away from this imaginary line.
- t is a good idea to mark the spot where your golf ball lands with a marker. This keeps balls off of the green while other golfers are putting.
- Golfers whose ball has landed furthest from the hole on the putting green should put first.
- And, say the Grupo Mayan golf professionals, tend the putting green flag for other golfers.
A final piece of advice from the Grupo Mayan golf professionals: Keep as quite as possible while others are putting. Unnecessary noise will break a golfers concentration.
