Importance of Spinning the Golf Ball
Spinning is one of the most fruitful and classic methods that are used in most ball-related games.

How to Spin a Golf Ball Best Easy Step
I don’t want to confuse by telling complex things. Here is a simple description of a ball spinning with some easiest steps. By following them you will learn to spin the ball in minimum time.
Step 1: Evaluate The Situation
At the very first, try to deeply understand the situation and calculate how you need to spin your golf ball, which curved way your ball should fly, the wind condition, the density and height of the grasses around the ball, etc. Analyzing these factors will give you a better chance to hit the ball in the right spin and reach the target without hitting the middle-obstacle.

After analyzing everything, stand in the correct posture. Posture will mostly like your regular one. Keep the ball between the frontal alignment of your leading leg and the middle of your body according to your height and comfort.
Step 3: Hold The Club in A Proper Way
The club is the only contact between you and the ball. So you must drive the club in a way that the club shows to the ball how you want it to spin and fly. The direction of spin and the number of spins depends on how you hold the club. That’s why hold the club open or close according to your need. Also, choose the right-lofted club for better favorable spins. Hold the club with your palms instead of your fingers. It will let you have even more control over your shot.
Step 4: Choose The Right Golf Ball
Spin also depends on the characteristics of the golf ball. A soft cored and soft covered ball are perfect for backspins as well as other-directed spins. These balls are made for accuracy and spinning instead of speeding. It also provides the ball a good grip with the clubface of gives a proper spin to it.
Step 5: Focus On Your Target and Choose the Right Angle
Since you are ready for the hit, you must now use your calculations to send the ball to its expected path. Rotate the clubface a few degrees (just a little) open or close for a fade or a draw spin. For backspin, you have to place the ball in a deeper stance. This must be according to your height and the face of the club. It may take some practice to get a suitable stance and clubface rotation to get an accurate result.
Step 6: Backswing and Shot
Now for the final step! Make sure that everything is perfect and suitable for a good hit.
For fade or draw spin, hit the ball almost with the square face of the club. Change the hitting position slightly towards the hill or toe of the clubface according to your needs. For backspins, try to compress the golf ball with the clubface to create a smooth backspin. Compression is how to spin a golf ball backwards properly. Hit the ball a little under the center for better lift. Try to make a shallow divot also.
Make sure the clubface angle should not get changed while swinging. Start swing from the straight upright position to give a good hit to the ball.
Step 7: Never Stop at The Point of Hitting
I know, you probably are well aware of this fact. You must follow through after the hit. If you try to stop suddenly soon after hitting, it can totally ruin your shot. Follow though instead, keep your body relaxed and let the body flow with the club.
If you know how to put backspin on a golf ball, you will have a better chance of making a good score in the tournaments.
