Learning how to swing a golf club is an important tip for any golfer to enable them to score better. Often, the simplest golf swing is also the most effective at hitting the ball further. Below are golf swing tips on how to improve the swing
The club should not be held too tightly, neither should it be handled too loosely as there is the danger of releasing it prematurely. The same concept should apply when driving the club to the right direction.
When playing golf, the weight of the player should be equally balanced. It is also important for the golfer to stay relaxed over the golf ball as any tension will affect the quality of the golf swing.
The left arm should be kept straight (for right handed players) during the backswing. The player should go as far as possible. The tempo of this swing is dictated by the personality of the player, as some players are naturally faster, while some are slower. The player should do what is most comfortable for them.
In this swing, keep the head at the same position. The swing should begin with the hips. The head should be behind the ball until the golfer follows through. The right hand should not be used to generate more power. The force in this golf swing should come from the leverage in the angle between the club and the wrists. The angle between the wrists and the clubs should be held as much as possible to generate maximum power.
The downswing should not be rushed as this will result in poor shots and inconsistency. There should be a gradually increasing speed on this swing, and the proper balance should be maintained. Also, the club should not be muscled or swung hard. Instead, make smooth and controlled movements which help the player to hit the ball solidly on a regular basis.
The club should not be lifted to let the force flow smoothly. Perform this swing with a smooth arc. The speed on the downswing should also be about thirty percent more than that used on the backswing which will ensure a smooth flow, proper force is applied to let the ball tee off, and a fantastic follow through
The Follow Through
After impact, fully release the club while keeping the head behind the ball. The player’s head should come up naturally with the right shoulder.
Patience is necessary when learning the golf swing. To begin, the player should go to the range and practice the swing without hitting any golf balls. As time goes by, then the player should start hitting a few balls.
