If you suddenly find yourself swinging for the trees, these golf tips might help.
Most golfers have difficulty executing a good golf swing. If you are one of those that belong to the 99.9% that makes nasty swings, here are some basic tips to help solve the problem. Especially if you play a lot but don’t seem able to improve your strokes or hits.
Take this golf tip: Go back to the fundamentals of the sport.
Most problems start from improper stance and grip.
- Identify the strokes that cause you the most problems and focus on improving those strokes.
- Check your tempo. A good golfer has proper coordination of the moving parts of the body. Speed and timing are also important factors for a good shot.
- See to it that you are not too anxious while hitting the ball. When you miss, then try again, this time relax yourself.
Once your stance, grip, and timing are corrected, you will see an improvement in your golf swing.
In addition to the above, other factors need to be considered and corrected to improve your golf swing. One of the scariest problems in golf is when the ball crazily turns to either the right or left. (Otherwise known as a slice or hook!) This is due to misalignment in the body and the swing plane. To alleviate this problem:
- do not stand to too close to the ball and shift your weight on your heels.
- When hitting the ball, avoid swaying your body. Any unnecessary movements may result to incorrect shots.
- It is but natural to move your body during stroking, but minimize side-to-side movements.
- Keep your feet together while hitting the ball as this will minimize body movement.
- Also, consciously shift your weight, trying to keep your weight in your heels.
- Keep a constant pace on hitting the ball, don’t decelerate as you make the down swing.
- Be wary of hitting the ground before the ball, this is called “fat shots” that may lead to injuries.
- Do you have bad games because you often push or pull the ball? Then check the distance of the ball and your stance.
- Make sure that your body is parallel to the target line. For pulling shots, ensure your self of enough coils while making your back swing.
- Avoid looking up while hitting the ball, again focus on your hit. See to it that you do not take your eyes away from the ball until it disappears after a shot.
- Do not be anxious as to where your ball will go. Many golfers say that this is their number one mistake.
