How to improve golf swing - The golf swing can always be improved whether you want your shots
to land on target more often or whether you want to get more distance
from your shots, the golf swing can always be worked on. In this article
I want to give you a quick guide on how to improve golf swing accuracy
and power, it will focus on how to improve your accuracy, how to get
more power and how to eliminate your mishits. Improve Your AccuracyA
great swing is one which produces accurate shots on a consistent basis.
Accuracy is an asset which all golfers want to posses, if you're
accurate you're going to eliminate mishits, get the ball to land on
target every time and most importantly shave strokes off your score.So
the best way in which you can improve your accuracy is to work on your
alignment. Now a lot of golfers when it comes to alignment can often
neglect it, but just spending a little time working on your alignment
will improve your accuracy very quickly.In order to get aligned
correctly you need to align both your body and your clubface correctly.
First of all take your normal stance and grip and then you want to align
your clubface correctly to your target. To do this you want to aim the
face of the club at the target.Next you want to ensure that your
body is aligned correctly, now an easy way to do this is to imagine a
line going from your ball to your target this is your target line. So if
you imagine that line all you need to do is ensure that your hips,
feet, shoulders and arms are all aligned parallel to your target line. Eliminating Mishits This
is again linked to accuracy, in order to improve the accuracy of your
shots you need to eliminate your mishits. Now the best way in which you
can eliminate your mishits is to work on your posture. The majority of
mishits are caused by simply setting up with an incorrect posture - it's
either too high or too low.So now that you're aligned correctly
you want to ensure that you have good posture. First of all you want to
bend forward slightly from the hips and bend your knees a little, your
knees should be nicely flexed. Then ensure that you tilt your spine away
from the target a little.When your stance is viewed in profile
your spine and the shaft of the club should form a 90 degree angle.
There should be about a hands width between your body and the club. Keep
your arms nice and relaxed, your left shoulder should be a little
higher than your right shoulder because of the position of your hands on
the club - your right hand is lower than your left on the club.Now
to be certain that you're set-up at the correct height you need to
check if your stance is too high or too low. To check if your stance is
too low you should address the ball with the clubhead square behind the
ball and then move the club back. If the club contacts the ground a few
inches behind the ball then your stance is too low. So if you're set-up
too low take a look and see that you haven't bent your knees too much,
there should be a slight bend rather than a 90 degree bend.To
check if your stance is too high you should again get in the address
position and place the clubhead square behind the ball. Then move the
clubhead back a few inches and then back through the ball - sort of like
a mini swing. Do this slowly and take a look at what part of the golf
ball the clubface is making contact with, if it is hitting the ball
above it's equator then your stance is too tall.Boosting Your Swing PowerWhen
adding power to your swing you want to be really careful not to make
any changes to your normal swing mechanics. If you change your swing to
get power it will only bring those mishits back and lower the accuracy
of your shots.Good golfers do not make changes to their swing
mechanics what they do is really utilize what they already do in the
swing to boost their power. So I just want to give you a brief guide to
utilizing your swing power. Firstly ensure that you're relaxed and that
you have a nice light grip pressure.Secondly most golfers are
aware that they have to direct their weight to their front foot on the
downswing, but they don't perform this weight shift to it's full
potential. You see a lot of golfers don't get that weight off of the
back foot enough, they tend to fall back on their back foot. A lot of
power comes from moving your weight towards your target through impact,
so if you don't get off that back foot enough then you're going to lose a
lot of power.So really take advantage of that weight shift,
really feel that right knee swing in towards the left leg on the through
swing. Remember 75% of your weight should be on your front foot at
impact, allow your weight to naturally shift onto the front foot as you
rotate back through into the ball. Get Out On the Course...So
follow this guide and you will really improve the accuracy of your
shots and also the power in your swing. Put these tips into action and
most importantly practice your swing.
