How To Forever Correct Your Cranky Old Golf Swing

It is possible to receive all of the best golf instruction, take countless golf lessons, receive the most superior of instruction and still be unable to reach the level of consistency that you desire for your golf game. Most golfers do want to improve as opposed to just stumbling ineptly around the golf course, and it is important to correct your swing, or you will never reach the level you wish.

Most golfers do want to play a confident game, and it has been shown through study after study that thinking positively about improving your golf game will get you much farther than just thinking about beating your partners or attempting to win a match just for the sake of winning. Approach each game of golf with the attitude that you are going to play better by improving the fundamentals in each phase, starting with your swing.

While putting and chip shots are played with very little movement of the body as a whole, your other shots such as your drives off the tee and the fairway shots do involve various degrees of the full golf swing. The club should not be too tightly gripped, and after you hit the ball, there should be a natural follow through of the swing all the way to the left.

Consider that the backswing is a full rotation to the right side of the body, which also shifts the body weight to the right, with the weight primarily on the right foot. The pelvis and the shoulders turn towards the right with a lifting of the arms and the elbows and the wrists flexing in accordance with club control. At the apex of the backswing, the hands is above the right shoulder, then as you begin the swing, the head of the golf club is pointing toward the ball, and you bring your hands in the direction of the ball so that they arrive just above the ball before the clubhead gets there.

The swing has to be natural, with your eyes always on the spot of the ball, even after you strike it. When you concentrate on how you strike the ball, keeping your gaze fixed on the spot where the ball rests on the tee, your don’t have to look suddenly at where the ball has gone, as that will wreck the accuracy of your shot.

Don’t stand over the ball attempting to get things “just right” because if you have practiced your swing enough, it will be just right, and you will assume that and know that because of thousands of practice swings at the driving range. The tee shots and fairway shots need to be all pretty much the same swing and stroke, you must trust the club that you use for the shot to do the job as it is intended. If the ball is firmly struck in much the same way each time you hit the ball, the pitch of the club from iron to wood will be your best friend.

Have your golf pro analyze your swing and help you to get a consistent and measured swing each time you hit the ball. There should be no guesswork and no fine tuning with each swing as your objective is to have the same swing with each effort. When you practice any physical enough the same way, you will soon find that it is the habit that is formed when doing it the right way that pays dividends in the long run.

There are golf aids that can help with your consistency, but in the end, it is your practice time and a good evaluation from time to time from your pro that gets results.
