Getting back to golf after break
I have a friend and he used to play golf for several years before he decided to spend more time for his career and his family. Now, after achieving some successes in both work and life, he has more time and wants to go back to this hobby. He is not the only one that is in this situation but many others out there have the same desire, to get back to golf after a break.

First of all, you need to buy all the necessary equipments to replace the old ones. Secondly, you have to do more exercises and practice to get back to your glorious time. There are too many things to do and too many challenges to deal with. Some people cannot get through these obstacles and give up on golf. We understand this problem and would like to introduce to you some strategies to overcome this period and help you make steady steps back into the golf games.
Start from the smallest things
If you have decided that this is time to go back to your favourite sport, then you should start from the very basics skills and techniques. Everything from the position of the ball, the poses for each part of your body, your swing pose etc. are all important and you need to take a careful look at them again before you start making any shots. Staying positive and give yourselves some time to get familiar again with the games. One vital point that you have to always bear in your mind is to make a clear picture of the ball swings before making it for real.

Stay away from pressure and enjoy the games
As you know, even great players like Tiger Wood have their bad days even periods. However, they are still great golf players and get admiration from others because they are also experts in controlling their emotions. It is very easy to feel angry and then desperate when you continuously make fail shots. The point here is if you keep being angry and hopeless about your shots and your games then you can never get better. Playing golf is relaxing and enjoying the sports and you can only do well if you can follow this simple rule. If you think back and realize that you have not played golf for a long time and during the time you have worked very hard to achieve other successes then you may want to give yourselves some more time. It takes years for an amaturer become a professional so you can rush and go short cuts. One thing also important to know is that golf is more than a sport. It is the opportunity to stay close to your fellows, your families and meet new people. You are doing exercises and stay healthy but at the same time you get more benefits from it. Because of these, you should not worry too much about a bad shots or if suddenly find your ball on a tree. All you need to do in these cases to to make a good laugh at it and be relax.
