Golf Swing Help With A Different Approach
Golf swing help is a thought in most amateur golfers minds on a daily basis. The never-ending search for a quick fix to your golf swing. I receive emails every day reading how golfers have tried “everything” and still haven’t improved. They have reached a state of desperation in their golf game.
Does this sound like you?
Tip: Do not move your legs so much when you are swinging the golf club. Too much leg movement impedes proper posture, throws off your swing and detracts from the distance of the ball.
Unless you have 8 hours a day to work on your golf swing like the pros have, you will not be able to achieve that ultimate goal of consistent performance. The golf swing technique of today has become so complicated, that golfers are “paralyzed by over-analysis”.
I’ve heard some great analogies lately!
Tip: Instead of struggling to try to overcome the problem, just figure out a way to work around it. This will contribute to your developing a unique style that may be to your advantage.
How about walking? Would we think of every biomechanical movement in every joint of our body when we walk? I don’t think so. If that happened, we’d have a lot of frustrated, immobile people out there.
Tip: Before your shot, stand back and study where you’re going to send the ball. Take time to incorporate variables for wind direction and other determining conditions.
The same thing holds true with golf. Having a basic understanding of how to hit the ball to your chosen target is critical, but after that, you shouldn’t have to think of 30 different things to swing the club to make this happen.
Tip: You can maintain a high confidence while golfing if you play with other players at your skill level. When you just learning to play, challenge beginner-level courses, and take other beginners with you when you play.
The end goal in golf is to get your ball to a target as accurately as you can, and then get it in the hole. With that being said, why are so many golfers not improving? The answer and solution are quite easy.
It’s what I say more than a dozen times every day to golfers. “It’s your body that swings the club, not the other way around”.
Tip: When you take a grasp on the handle of your club, make sure not to favor one hand over the other. If you hold your golf club too tight, your shots will have a tendency to veer off to the right.
Your swing is only as good as your current ‘physical’ capabilities. Don’t you think that makes sense? I mean…if your body is tight (inflexible), do you think you’ll be able to make a nice full backswing with minimal tension? No way! That’s a physical impossibility.
Tip: Keeping an eye on your ball is a standard golfing principal in nearly every circle. This is a rule you’ll hear repeated when you play many different sports, but it’s of utmost importance when playing golf.
The ONLY way to be able to achieve optimal swing mechanics with minimal effort is to improve your body’s ability to reach these physical points in the golf swing consistenly. Whether it’s a 90 degree shoulder turn, or hips slightly open with your head stationary behind the ball at impact.
Tip: For every shot you take, keep the exact same ball position. This will help to improve the consistency of your game.
It makes total sense to break down the swing fault you are currently dealing with and look at the physical requirement needed from your body. The more involved I get with improving golf performance, the more interested I’m getting in the biomechanics of the golf swing and how to improve them with the physical approach (both strength and flexibility).
Tip: For increased power in your golf swing, focus on involving your whole body in the swing. Beginners often mistakenly think that arms provide the power in the stroke, but using the arms alone makes for an clumsy, weak swing.
I’ve seen dramatic results from members of my websites and customers of my golf improvement products, which tells me this is the way to improve your golf swing the quickest. I’ve had golfers literally tell me they wish they would have taken this approach 20 years ago!
Why not end the frustration once and for all and take a look at the ‘source’ of your swing fault?
With this approach, the last thing on your mind will be golf swing help.
