Improving your golf swing for idiots

Aug 23, 2008
For some golf trainers, the very 1st lesson they will teach their students is how to grip the golf club correctly. Why? Because if you don't grip the golf club correctly, it could cause you to slice the golfball almost everytime.

The best time to practice is after a round. All the shots that ended up in the wrong spot for you during the round is fresh in your mind,and your body and mind are still in game mode.Consistently working on the shots that gave you trouble on the course,will help greatly.

Regardless of which way you grip your golf club, never grip the club too tightly. This is one of the biggest causes of slicing the ball. You want to hold the club firm, but not "choke hold" it, meaning, you want a firm hold while not tensing up your hands or forearms, this makes you feel more relaxed and focused as well as giving you better control.

Another thing that may affect the way you grip your golf club is the size of the handle. When you buy a new club, you may want to go to a pro shop and get your grip measured. If you buy from a normal sports store or even from a yard sale or whatever, you are getting club handles that may be either too big or too small for you personally

This really does make a difference, it may not seem like it would, but it has been proven to help golf swings. You can buy handles and re-grip your clubs if you want to go that route, that way you don't spend a fortune on new clubs, just fix your old ones to fit your hand size, check out a pro golf shop and ask them about getting your grip measured and about getting grips to fit you.

Many amateur golfers have shaved 3 or 4 strokes off their games just by practicing 5 or 10 minutes while waiting for dinner or supper to be served. Putting is something you can easily practice at home.

In the most extreme case, if your club is too long or too short you will not be able to swing it properly. Your golf clubs will either keep on plowing into the ground or miss the golf ball. Either way, you will look stupid and feel stupid.

Whether you are already a die hard golfer or are a beginner, you want to learn how you can get the best golf swing so that you can start having fun and enjoying the game.
