For beginners when you say golf swing lesson, I bet they are already tense thinking what kind of golf stance and golf club grip they are going to use before launching their very first swing.
Relax, it’s not that difficult to learn. I have noted below a few lessons that you need to know, such as…
Golf Grip – This is the main factor that can affect your swing. Before starting make sure to check your grip, is it becoming hard, slick or slippery? If not then you are set to go.
Golf Stance – A good balanced and relaxed stance would result in a good swing. It may not be perfect but it will help if you through the facets of the game.
For a good stance, start with placing the inside of your foot just ahead if the ball. The front and back feet should be shoulder width apart. Next, bend at the top but keep your back straight and then bend slightly at the knees.
Tip: the knee cap is directly above the balls of your feet. The angle of the back should be 45 degrees and your arms is hanging straight down from your shoulder. And keep your feet align every time you are about to perform a swing.
Back Swing– This is all about coiling up your body and creating the muscle torque needed to release a powerful downswing. Specifically, the resistance is created between the greater turning of the upper body and shoulder.
Tip: Do not perform in a hurry, it will not make the downswing any faster. Not real fast and not real slow, just the right tempo, take your time. Take 1 or 2 trial swings before hitting the ball.
Release– This is the term used in golf when you are going to hit the ball. You cannot make the impact by yourself. Your swing should reach it’s momentum to execute it effortlessly and release, then it will surely result into a good shoot.
Ideally, you want to square the clubface through impact by rotating your right forearm if your right handed and left one if your a lefty. After impact your arms should extend fully as your lower body rotates to the left while the club remains to the target line. Your arm passes your body through the impact zone, your head should remain behind the ball.
This isn’t a position that you just put yourself into, you have to learn it to let it happen automatically.
