One of the most difficult parts of golf is learning how to swing a golf club correctly. Many people think that the harder you swing, the harder the ball will fly. This leads to beginner golfers breaking golf clubs or destroying dirt under the tee. With these tips you will learn how to swing the golf club properly and crack an 80 score. Here are the basics.
No matter how many different swings you’ve seen, the basics of swinging a golf club are all the same. To start your swing you need to know how to grip the club. Your hands should be as close together as possible and still feel comfortable. Getting a grip that helps position your hands is a good option, even some of the pros use one.
The second part of swinging a golf club is perfecting your posture. You start by bending your knees slightly and leaning forward from your hips. This puts you at a 30 degree angle to the ball. For most people this will feel natural and even comfortable, but there is a demographic for which this doesn’t feel right. From this position you should be able to rotate easily.
When it comes to moving your arms, you don’t want to block your arms. Make sure your left arm stays straight while your right arm is bent. Keep your left arm straight as you pull back. At the top of your swing, your right elbow should be pointing down toward the floor.
When your racquet is flowing down towards the ball, you need to keep your eye on the ball. If your eyes leave the ball, it will cause your golf club to move out of alignment. Once your racquet hits the ball, don’t look up, you need to follow through with your swing. Your club should return to the front apex of your front swing. Once the racquet gets to the top of the swing, you can look up to see where the ball went.
Once you’ve mastered your golf swing, you’re ready to learn more about the game of golf. You can learn different types of swings and aim better. From there you can progress to trickier shots and further control your distance and you can play like a pro. Always learn every step from the bottom of your heart.
