How To Improve Your Golfing Technique
The golf swing can be one of the most complicated things to master in all sports, if golfers have this mindset. However, if golfers follow a few, easy tips they can have a swing that feels natural and yields excellent results.
The key is for golfers to forget about all of the technical things they hear from golf announcers and their friends. Golfers hear all of this stuff about swing plane, wrist hinge, shoulder turn and which body parts to move first. These things all occur naturally, assuming the golfer is in a relaxed position.
It is important the golf swing does everything that the technical information discusses; however, many people take these thoughts to an extreme.
They stand over the ball, trying to imagine where the swing plane would be. Then they wonder how they are going to get their hands in front of the ball, which supposedly results in better distance and accuracy. By this time, they are already very tense, and it will be a miracle if they can get any distance on the ball, let alone accuracy. There are a few drills golfers can perform to see that the golf swing is actually a natural movement.
Most golfers believe that all of the angles have to be manipulated; however, this first drill will prove otherwise. To begin the first drill, the golfer should take practice swings, without a ball. They will need to grab a club they feel comfortable with and try to bring it straight back from the imaginary ball.
They will notice that the club actually forms a right angle and stays on the swing plane. The majority of golfers hear all of the talk about how the club needs to strike the inside portion of the ball, so they manipulate the club to their inside during the backswing. The club will naturally come inside if golfers simply attempt to bring it straight back, as it has to rotate with the body turn.
Another drill golfers can perform to improve their downswing and follow through is the half-swing drill. They will simply bring the club back, as if they were hitting a 40 yard chip shot. When they reach the halfway point, they should bring their arms back to impact, without manipulating their hands or wrists.
Most golfers have been led to believe that they need to actually manipulate their wrists to square the clubface. Again, the golfer will see that the clubface will automatically square, as this is a natural instinct.…
