5 Tips For Improving Your Golf Swing

Aug 14, 2008
If you are trying to learn how to play golf, or just trying to improve your game, you most likely understand how important a good golf swing is to your game. There are some basic tips that all golfers either need to know, or already follow with regard to the swing. Following you will see what they are:

1. An accurate golf swing is really not about your arms. This can be described as putting your golf club behind your back, at the same time turning your back to the green. If you are thinking less about where your arms are, or where they will be, you won't be so likely to bend your elbow as you swing. It's important to cock your wrists. Be sure to cock your wrists at a 90 degree angle as your left arm is parallel to the ground. This will help you take your golf club back straight without having to actually THINK about doing it.

2. Remember to allow your left arm to roll just a little clockwise at the beginning of your back swing. You don't usually have to remember to do this. This can happen automatically if you let it. All you have to do is not resist the natural movement.

3. Keeping your feet on the ground is important. You see many golfers letting their front heels come off the ground while executing their golf swing. This is really not needed. This action really just makes creating the proper tension in your body that much harder. It is fine to let your foot roll to the inside, but also keep it on the ground to anchor your swing.

4. Remember that the golf down swing starts from the bottom. Even if you do everything right with your golf grip, stance and back swing, you can still ruin it all by starting your golf down swing with your shoulders.

5. To get the golf down swing right, turn your hips towards the target. This little tip can improve your golf swing so that your drives start going straighter and longer. If you turn your hips toward the target as fast and hard as you can, you will see a great improvement overall.

By following the above suggestions, you should be noticing quite an improvement in your golf swing pretty quickly. It may be hard to adjust to doing something differently, but if you have been doing it wrong all along, it is time to learn the right way. It's worth it to make your game better.
