More Info
									Finding Your Ideal Golf Swing Technique Golf is one of those sports which can be very rewarding and very frustrating at the same time. Your swing is one of the hardest things to perfect; and many say that you never really perfect it but instead there's a continual process of improvement. At least this is the idea - you may find yourself trying and trying, only to have something go slightly wrong. Once you do hit that ideal drive, it's a gratifying thing except for that nagging question of why all your drives can't go so smoothly. It is your golf swing technique which makes all the difference in how your drives go. As in bowling or baseball, there is something of a science to a good swing; it's all a matter of learning what works best for you. Naturally, it's harder than it looks on paper, but the following tips may help you to find the golf swing technique which best suits your game. The 3 Parts Of The Swing A golf swing has three parts: backswing, downswing and follow through. All three are equally important to your swing and each needs to have a fluency of motion. Understanding each of these three parts will help you to improve your technique - many golfers find is helpful to be able to break down their swing into distinct parts when trying to improve their game. Stance Unless you're already an expert player, then you should use the same stance for every shot. What you need is to have your feet set apart so that they form a straight line with your shoulders Your knees should be very slightly bent to allow you to maintain your balance as your weight shifts during your backswing. Grip Your grip should also be the same for every shot. If you're still learning the game or you've been having trouble with your scores, then a simple interlock grip is probably the best way to go. Remember that your grip should be neither too loose nor too tight. You need to keep control of your club while making sure that your wrists have just enough range of motion to move through your swing. Practice As You Play You can improve your golf swing technique by using your games as an opportunity to practice. Naturally, you don't want to practice your swing constantly while other people are trying to focus on their shots, but whenever the chance presents itself to practice while you're on the green, take advantage of it. Get Fit Being in good shape and flexible isn't just good for your health, but also for your game. When you've built up more strength and flexibility, you'll have better balance and more control over your shots. If you're all about the long drives, this will also help you with that. There are a lot of different things which go into developing a winning golf swing technique; and the tips presented here are by no means all of them. The more you learn and the more you practice, the better you game will be. *If you want more great tips to improve your swing, CLICK HERE ! *
