A lot of people go straight to the course, but you should always make time to warm up on the driving range. These practice shots help so you don’t get off to a cold start.
Use your body, and channel energy to get a good swing. When people first start out playing golf, they think the power is in their arms, but that is only partially true because you need to be in coordination with your body to hit the ball far. It is more effective to move your entire body with the motion of the club. A great technique for bettering your swing is to make the most of your entire body weight as a means to gain additional power. Novice golfers think the power comes from the arms, but only using the arms can make weak and awkward swings. You get better results when your body is in sync with your arms and hands.
If you find that you are having a hard time shifting your weight when you swing and seem to be leaning back after striking the ball, you need to take some practice. Go to the range, and try using a baseball-type style. Pay attention to how batters swing in baseball. They lift their front foot for balance and leverage, bringing it down through the swing and driving off of their back foot. You will obviously have to find your own rhythm here, but taking a page from the baseball playbook may help.
Keep the proper stance. If you’re not sure, keep your feet still and tap your toes vertically. You should be doing this with a little effort. If you are angled too far forward, this will be tough. If you can do it very easily, you need to lean forward a bit more.
You do not need to crank your backswing to the limit in order to get maximum power. By taking your backswing too far, you run the risk of shifting your stance away from what you need to produce a solid golf shot.
It’s a good idea to get as much practice as possible on your golf swing. A golf simulator is really helpful with this. By practicing a little bit every day, even in your bedroom or during your lunch break at work, you can keep improving your overall game. If you have issues with slicing the ball, you just need to practice. The problem arises due to the clubface hitting the ball incorrectly, which results to the ball curving to the right. Be sure that you have all your shoulders, hips and knees parallel to your target line. On the downswing make sure your hands are out in front of your body and try not to let yourself get ahead of the ball.
