How to Improve Your Golf Swing

Improving your golf swing, can go a long way towards improving your standard of golf.

First off all you should remember flexibility and suppleness are both required for golf. Before you start playing, stretch a bit to improve your flexibility and definitely it will improve your golf. Moreover an additional benefit of stretching is that it can help you avoid injuries, especially injuries to your back.

Key things to bear in mind when taking your golf swing include:
  • Keep your head still

  • Keep your eye on the ball

  • You have to bend from hips

  • You need to maintain the angle of your spine

  • Correct grip of the club is important. You need to grip it in neither too loosely nor too tightly.

  • Try to be conscious if your body alignment and movement

  • Keep your shoulders square

  • You tilt your spine away from the target and over the ball
The position of contact between the clubface and the ball is also a very important issue, especially when teeing off. You should aim to hit the ball high enough so that at least half of the ball should be above the edge of the clubface. A thin or topped shot will result if you hit the ball against only the lowest a part of the clubface, and the ball will be skied if the point of contact on the clubface is too high. You can help yourself achieve this kind of position by how you position the tee – lean the tee slightly forward if you want a lower trajectory, and slightly backward if you want a higher trajectory.

Use of down swing is another technique that you also need to master. The purpose of down swing is to create club momentum, which will help you hit the ball further. The ball simply won’t go far if your downswing is too light. Downswing should come from your arms and hips, not your hands.

The last thing you need to consider is backswing. Your hands should go waist high or higher, and a good backswing will in turn help with your down swing.

In combination all these techniques will improve your golf swing. Think carefully about technique (although try to develop your own style rather than merely copying others), and over time, and with practice, your golf swing, and golf game generally, will start to improve.
