Problem with your swing? Start with the basics…


The increasingly popular game of golf can be described as one of the hardest and most frustrating games on the planet. And at the same time can be both an enjoyable and relaxing experience. The thing that most golfers have in common is that just when you think you’ve mastered the art of the game, new problems begin to occur leaving you to re-think your entire golfing strategy.

The golf swing for example is one of the hardest things to get right when playing golf.

One day it can be fine and the next you can barely hit it off the tee. Why is this?

It could be one of many reasons, the most common being is that you probably altered a part of your swing or setup without even realizing it. Any slight change in anyone’s golf swing can have a huge impact on their game and before you know it you can find yourself in all sorts of trouble.

Below are a few golf tips that most players will find very helpful when it comes to improving their golf swing and overall game:

1. Your Grip

The first and one of the most important things every golfer needs to play golf is a good grip. The best tip for a good golf grip is to hold the club quite firm but not too tight. This will give you some freedom and movement and will allow you to swing with ease allowing for a better more relaxed golf swing. 

2. Your Stance

Probably the most overlooked aspect of the golf game is the stance.

The best advice on this matter is simply to make sure that your entire body (eyes, shoulders, forearms, hips, knees and feet) are parallel to the target line where you wish to hit your golf shot.

Posture is also a key factor to your golf stance. Always make sure you bend forward from the waist and keeping your spine as straight as possible. A good tip for this is to lift your head up a little bit so you have to look down your nose at the ball. This is a great way to keep your back that little bit straighter and create better golf shots.

And lastly keep your knees slightly bent with your weight on the balls of your feet to ensure good balance. 

3. Your Swing

A great golf swing tip is to always remember to swing through the ball and not at it. Doing this will achieve greater extension through your golf shot making for an overall better swing.

A mistake some golfers can make is swinging their club to hard thinking that the ball will travel further. The truth is that a more relaxed swing creates greater club head speed allowing the ball to travel further. Swinging hard causes the body to tense making it a nightmare in some cases to hit a good drive.

Overall the best way to achieve results in golf is to believe in your ability and knowledge of the game.

Try not to over think everything, relax and just enjoy playing the game of golf.
