How To Master Your Golf Swing

Aug 16, 2008
Mastering your back swing is important if you want to play good golf. Unless you have this skill, you can not make the most of your game of golf. Perhaps you already have this skill.

But improving on it would enhance your overall game as well as improve your putting skills. Improving your power is not that important as improving your form and distance when you want to work on this area.

Aligning with the ball, the right posture and good shoes would help you to improve your swing. What happens when you have a wrong posture is that you tend to twist at the wrong time. This poses a problem which may not allow you to hold the club properly.

It can make you twist at an inappropriate moment which ultimately does not allow you to grasp the club correctly. All these things put together could create big problems in a good back swing. The first build up is to have the right posture. This allows you for a rapid follow through to your swing.

One of the ways you can correct your posture is to take a snapshot of yourself or ask someone to take a shot. Once you have your picture, see it against the proper stance that has to be taken. If this is not an option for you, look into some lessons, which will allow you to work with someone to truly master your stance.

Building your skills upon a good set of foundation skills is necessary in order to ensure that you are learning the right skills as you need them. If you have the ability to work with a golf instructor this is going to be the best way since they can be much more honest with you about the flaws in your stance than you will be with yourself.

When you are sure that you have the right posture, look into the areas of problems with your grip. You could end up with a poor backhand right from the start if you overextend your grip or hold the club the wrong way. To get a good back swing it is imperative that you have a good grip of the club. To get it perfect, you would surely go on trying. But it would only frustrate your further as it is nearly impossible to attain. A small shift in the position of your hands could completely change the picture.

Before the club leaves the ground, just pull it away from the ball. This is yet another step towards improving your back swing. Players make the mistake of pulling and lifting the club nearly at the same moment. This will result in you're hitting the ball off centered and can greatly damage your movement. You can notice a dramatic improvement of the game if you just pull the club from the ball before lifting it from the ground. This is not something that should be unnatural of difficult to do. As soon as you consciously try to pull before lifting the club, your back swing talent would improve.
