Critical Golf Swing Tips for the Golf Players
Though the golf swing can seem complicated, there are really only a few key critical fundamentals to remember that are inherent in just about any golf swing. Here are some critical golf swing tips for the golf swing. Whenever you are working on your golf game, review and practice these golf swing tips to engrain the proper golf swing movements into your full swing.
Golf Swing Tip 1: Setup
1.Golf Grip – Using the Vardon Overlap golf grip used by the vast majority of golfers, take the little finger of your right hand and place it between the index and middle finger of your left hand (or leading hand). Your left hand thumb should fit snugly in the lifeline of your right hand. Ensure that your golf grip pressure is light so that amount of wrist hinge throughout your swing is fluid. On a scale of 1 to 10 where 10 is “tight” and 1 is “loose,” you should strive for a “5 to 6″ golf grip pressure.
2.Posture and Stance – Placing your body weight in middle of your feet, tilt from hips approximately 30 degrees to achieve proper spine angle. Keep your knees slightly flexed and back straight while your arms hang freely. Keep your chin up and off your chest.
3.Ball Position – Driver – three balls forward from center (aligned with heel of left foot); 3, 5 Wood & Hybrid (also 1-4 Irons) – two balls forward from center; 5,6 & 7 Iron – one ball forward from center; 8, 9 & Wedges – ball in center of stance.
Golf Swing Tip 2: Backswing
1.Shift body weight to inside of right leg as club is taken back.
2.As hands approach waist, wrists start to hinge/cock.
3.At the top of the backswing, left arm is straight and 80% of weight on right leg; keep right knee flexed.
4.Also, at the top of the backswing, strive for shoulder turn 90° and hip turn of 45°.
Golf Swing Tip 3: Downswing
1.Your first movement in the downswing is weight shift of body to left, then hips, arms and shoulders unwind to impact.
2.At impact, club is released by unhinging wrists and delivering club square through ball—keep head behind ball at impact.
3.As body turns to target through impact, arms and club extend down target line.
4.At finish, belt buckle faces target, club is wrapped around shoulder; 90% of body weight on left leg with right foot on toes.
