Your golf swing will only improve with practice, like any other skill. Here are some tips to help you improve your golf swing and in turn, your game.
Always avoid swinging too fast – danger there. Too fast of a swing tends to be more of newbie golfer mistake, though. As you reach the summit of your swing – the top, then just pause a trifle. That pause is not supposed to be of a long duration, though. Don’t destroy the feel and rhythm of your swing with your pause – just ever so quick for the pause. Just think about what’s going on with your swing; if there is no pause you will be much more likely to lose some control because you need to be mindful of the change from back/front swinging.
Make sure to put your left knew out toward your target during the backswing motion. It is most likely that you will feel a bit of muscle tension not to mention a much more stable position in both knees. The position you are now in will help you maintain a good base and minimize the amount of turn your upper body will give you during follow through. Try imagining a basketball between your knees (or really putting one there) when you swing to practice this. You will be more apt to point your knee in the target direction and feel the tension and strength yu will need to draw from.
If you need to work on the swing power, then you need to use the leg and trunk muscles. Your swing power is not in your arms. Ok? It’s not about how ‘strong’ your arms are. It kind of seems that the arms are the seat of power, and that is a natural assumption made by new players. Truthfully, attempting to gain power with only the use of your arms and wrists can be a terribly bad idea because you can produce an injury. So remember that swing strength and power comes from your entire body and specifically your legs and body trunk. Your stance is critical, and this will help you keep the right stance. It protects your arms and wrists. If you keep at it, then you can have the kind of power and accuracy that will improve your game.
