Expert Tips To Improve Your Swing Technique As A Beginner Golfer

By

Golf is more of an art than a science, regardless of your age or ability level. You should be wary of recommendations targeted at tour professionals. Expert players can hit the ball a long distance, but they typically aim to develop until they are as consistent as a robot. If you follow the majority of their advice as a beginner golfer, you will most likely play worse rather than better. While the techniques listed below can help you develop your swing at any age, you should also consider investing in golf training aids. But it all comes down to practice.

Practice Drills In A Chair

Even though this method has been used for decades, it still works today. As you sit with your feet flat on the ground, hold a club with a regular grip. Swing the club back with a complete shoulder turn and then through. Please note how your forearms feel as you spin the clubface open as it returns, makes an impact, and then follows through with it. When you use the chair to restrict everything from your hips down, the forearm and clubface rotation sensation is focused and magnified. 

Practice Taking A Walk Through

This approach aids in the development of rhythm and footwork. It will sync your legs and feet’s support with your club, as well as the swinging of your wrists and arms. Start by arranging six balls in a line (teeing). Continue with your short iron and work your way up to utilizing the driver. Begin with your short iron club. However, swing your club back, allowing your left heel to get off the ground and hit the initial ball. Step toward the line of balls you’ve lined up and hit them one after the other. Because you are going forward, your hips cannot release at impact.

Practicing Speed Training

Place an alignment rod under your left armpit to work on your range. Put yourself in a regular address stance and pretend to perform a backswing by turning back as though you’re about to do it. Turn through as quickly as you can. There will be little speed there. Swing the rod with your usual grip, blasting it through with your hands and arms. You enjoy an almost immediate difference in your swing. If you keep your hands and arms loose, you will be able to swing the rod faster. 

Practicing Transition Drills

When you practice different-length pitches, you get a sense of using the clubhead and swinging your club freely. When you practice with the sand wedge, you may rapidly understand allowing your club to swing. This is the most powerful and heaviest golf club in your bag. Instead of controlling where the club goes, your hands, arms, and body will react to the golf club; try practicing transition drills.

This will assist you in creating a feel for how your weight slides to the inside of your right foot on the backswing. It then moves around the outside of your left foot on the through-swing. Hitting pitch shots is frequently the most effective approach to enhance your whole swing. You develop an awareness of how your feet and legs support your swing by varying the practice pitches. Practicing this every day will add “muscle memory” to your body and allow you to hit longer shots.
