Thanks for tuning back in in joining us for another article. This week we are going to talk about a few tips that every beginning golfer should use to help improve their ability to hit the ball. There are a few basic reasons why amateur and beginning golfers can’t hit the ball down range the way that they see other people do it.
If it is your first time trying the sport, we recommend that you start with a golfing coach, or golfing instructor who can at the very least help you select the proper sized club based on if you are right or left handed, and how tall you are and the length of your arms. Making sure that you’re comfortable and have a proper form is the first step to making sure that you are going to be able to perform the sport a respectable level.
The most important thing we recommended, is taking the best form is to make sure that you’re aiming by using your eyes keeping them directly focused on the ball. Position your body in a way so that your legs, shoulders, and feet are all at the same distance and that you are directly in a position in from the bottom. Allow your arms to reach without coming in contact with the floor or coming short of reaching the ball.
Once you have determined the proper stance that is solid and positioned correctly we will start to build your swing from the foundation. By properly practicing the correct mechanics and using the hips to swing in a motion that sweeps rather than chops along a horizontal plane, you’ll find yourself increasing the amount of power that one can deliver today impact of the ball. From this, be sure to pay close attention to the position of your shoulders arms and elbows. Make sure that the club is held within the palms such in a way that the wrist is not stopping short of its full range of motion, but instead catches the angle of the ball perfectly.
A lot of golf instructors will use the term “swing down” or what this really means is to make sure that the swing begins with the motion in your hips, from the ground up. Once you can begin to coordinate how you shift the weight between your legs and hips and knees you will be able to deliver more powerful and awkward swing with every stroke.
We recommend that beginning golfers try to save money by starting with small courses, where there are three, six or nine holes before getting too involved where they may find themselves in a larger courses that they are not prepared for. Practice makes perfect, so spend plenty of time at the driving range and you will find yourself getting better positions and feeling more comfortable as your muscles start to recall the movements.
By setting up a tripod and a camera you can catch your video movement on film and be able to correct yourself if you were over swinging or under swinging and making you adjustments to perfect the perfect stroke.
