The Golf Score - How to Improve It with the Proper Golf Swing Who can better understand the importance of the golf swing than the weekend or amateur golfer who sprays his shots all over the course with slices and hooks? By giving attention to your golf swing and improving it, you can not only improve your score but also your enjoyment of the game. The techniques and the mechanics of your golf swing are what determine whether the club face will hit the ball square on, in other words in the sweet spot, and send the golf ball rocketing towards the hole, or whether the club will hit the ball off center and send it spinning into the rough. In all sports, it is essential that you warm up properly to attain the best performance. If you go to any professional or even amateur sporting event, you will see competing athletes doing pre-game warm-ups. Golfers, especially those in the professional level, are not different from them. When tour professionals are about to begin their first tee, they would have made full warm-ups to be able to make their best swings. However, most amateurs have their “warm-ups” done by racing from their autos to the shop and check in, then dashing to their first tee, in just about five minutes. Most of the time, this is followed by an unsteady and inconsistent play for the first holes, ending up with another lackluster round. The result: Disappointing golf scores. Here are some tips for you for improving your golf score: 1. First, go to the golf course as early as possible. You need time in taking care of your matters in the shop, in using the restroom, changing clothes and shoes, among others. It is crucial that you do not feel pressured or rushed, allowing you to get warmed up at a relaxed pace. Remember that your warm-up time sets your mood and tempo throughout the day, so just relax and move slowly. A minimum of an hour or two before you begin hitting your first tee would probably help you get a nice and relaxed warm-up. 2. Start your warm-up routine at the putting green. By spending some time on warming up on the green, you will be ready for the speed of the greens. More importantly, you will start up your day with a nice, deliberate, and smooth tempo. 3. Spend about 10 minutes or so trying to hit the chips around the green using a tee as your target. First test the greens' firmness to see how much or less the golf ball will roll. In general, the ball tends to move more on hard greens than the soft greens. In addition, there are various kinds of rough which make the ball move differently when it touches the green. Spending some time around the green helps you to have some thoughts on choosing the great greenside shots during your round, and also, the spots where you are landing the golf ball on the putting surface. Remember that if you do not get enough warm-ups, you should not expect to have an optimal performance, and consequently, a good golf score. Because the golf swing is the most vital element of the game of golf in determining how well you will hit the ball and score, most people will spend a lot of time practicing and working on their golf swing. Practicing is important because by having a solid foundation and mastering the basics of the golf swing, you will add more enjoyment to your golf game for as long as you play. Your style of golf will determine what is a proper golf swing for you, but there are a few underlying things about the golf swing that will hold true for every golfer. Don't sway back and forth during your swing and keep your legs steady to form a sturdy foundation. Achieving a one plane swing should be your goal. This will give you scoring improvement on the course and better enjoyment of the game. Use a video camera to record your own golf swing with different clubs. Then you can sit back and analyze your own action and technique. If you are really serious about improving your game, then you might want to consider enrolling the help of a professional teacher. You may be surprised with how little effort can propel your golf swing to the next level. For more information, you may visit: http://tinyurl.com/lus536
