It doesn’t have to be either difficult or complicated to improve your golf swing. You do have to be committed to making changes, and making that your intention.
When you practice your golf swing, if you do it over and over, but are doing it wrong, it isn’t doing you any good. If you learn as much as you can, and practice doing things differently, you can gradually improve your golf swing and your whole game. We’ll be looking at some simple ways to do that in this article.
Your swing is closely connected to the way you grip your golf club. You cannot swing a golf club properly if your grip isn’t right where it should be. As you probably know, there are several grips that you can use. You simply have to find one that works for you. Perhaps you have heard of the overlap grip. Basically, the pinky of one hand goes over the forefinger of the other. The 10 finger grip and interlock grip can be used, along with an assortment of other grips that are available. Make sure you do not grip the club tightly, and also try to be relaxed when you are holding your club prior to the swing. Never hold a golf club in your palms – it should always be held with your fingers. You may have to experiment with different grips until you find the one that works best for you.
Golf lessons from a pro is the easiest way to quickly improve your swing. You can ask around where you play golf, but you might get conflicting recommendations, but you will have instructors to checkout. You don’t want someone who says he is an instructor, but someone who teaches and can actually play the game quite well. To find instructors who are legitimate, you should make sure they are members of either the PGA or LPGA, both well known organizations. Just because an instructor works well with one person, doesn’t mean that will be true in all cases. This is essential if you want to be able to benefit from taking lessons, as you have to be comfortable with the person who’s teaching you. If you have a good teacher, even a few lessons will teach you a lot.
One of the hardest things to understand about the golf swing is that it can be broken down into several parts yet it should still be one fluid motion. Before starting the downswing, there needs to be a slight pause at the top of the backswing. For anyone watching, the pause is so slight, they might not notice. The swing will lose its momentum, if the pause is too long. Your goal should be to make a smooth transition between the upswing and downswing, which only comes with practice. When you rush your swing, it causes harm, but so does being rushed, jerky or tense.
Unless you are willing to change to the right swing, practice will be fruitless. These tips have worked for lots of people, but for them to work for you, you will need to try them out. You can always be checking your grip or stance because they get off easily, and so does your weight shift. There are many different elements to the Golf swing, and everyone has issues that they have to work on.
