					Tips For Correcting An Ailing Golf Swing
If you're like most golfers, you want to improve, not just hack around the golf course. When you're playing golf badly it isn't a lot of fun. Most golfers
don't know that eighty percent of the world's golfers have a handicap of 18 or more.

Visualize where you would like the ball to land, as you swing. The positive energy you send out will influence your game, just as negative thinking and
therefore negative energy will affect it also. Golf requires tough mental fitness as well as physical fitness and is often overlooked.

Putts and short chips are ideally played without much movement of the body, but most other golf shots are played using variants of the full golf swing.
Ask your golf pro to evaluate your posture while swinging. Make sure to use the proper technique.

Use the muscles in your legs and trunk when you swing. The most important thing about the golf swing is the angle and not the strength that's applied
to it. Accomplished golfers purposely use sidespin to steer their ball around obstacles or towards the safe side of fairways and greens.

Pick out a spot on the course, preferably the green of the fairway, and concentrate on hitting the ball to that spot. At the end of a swing, the weight has
shifted almost entirely to the left foot, the body is fully turned to the left and the hands are above the left shoulder with the club hanging down over the
players' back. After the ball is hit, the follow-through stage consists of a continued rotation to the left.

At the end of a backswing the hands are above the right shoulder, with the golf club pointing more or less in the intended direction of ball flight. Use
the basic 'hitchhiker' position when you're working on your backswing.

Most golfers don't know there are techniques that will greatly affect swing mechanics; you can get an edge by just changing your approach. Don't
underestimate the value of fitness when it comes to your golf swing and your overall golf game. It's no secret; most of the professional players actively
participate in workouts.

Before buying any golf swing aid, check with an expert to get an idea of what problem you need to work on first; backlift of golf swing, momentum of
downward thrust or stance for example. If you're looking for an aid to improve your stance they're not hard to find. Aids come in all shapes and sizes
including apparel type accessories to correct alignment or a golf club add-on accessory to monitor your swing.

You can find aids that will help you with your wrist and arm position. Golf aids are often for sale at your pro shop or local golf shop. Golf magazines
often review the newest golf swing aids and are reviewed by golfers, making it easy to choose the right one for you.

Most of all don't waste your money on an aid you don't need or will never use. Sporting goods stores have golf aids to improve your game. Whether
you're a seasoned golfer or you're just starting out, pick just one aid and go to work on your swing.

Look for golf swing aids at your local golf course. If you're a golfing novice just starting out, it's easy to become overwhelmed.

If you've hit with your golf driver perfectly once, you can do it every time. Get some golf DVDs and commit yourself to a time to practice what you learn.
Pick out something every week to concentrate on and help you improve your golf swing and golf game.
