Golf Swing Tips

1. You should keep your lower body quiet

This myth cranked out from the idea that too much lower body motion will result in the swing to get thrown off. Anyways, nowadays in golf, it requires a weight shift to the front foot from the back. If you put your focus on keeping your lower body quiet, it may result in a meek. If you make a weight shift with hesitancy, it can cost you distance and accuracy.

2. Your head should stay still and down

The truth is, your head will move slightly along with the pivot of your swing. But not upwards or downwards. Nor should your head move before the impact on the ball. If someone is giving you the advice to keep your head down, slap that advice right in the kisser. Adhering to this will result in the blockage of the shoulder turn. This is one of the most common myths about golf swinging and the receiver takes this fake news too seriously. So, if you are also another victim, then rise now.

3. You should make a big and full swing

Seeing certain moves of professional golfers, many newbies consider their swing to be an ideal.

You have to remember, most of the amateurs don’t have the flexibility or natural talent to smack a ball well over 300 yards.

Seeing professionals do such thing, the amateurs try to replicate them and make an all-out swing. This results in, wads of pushes, pull and slices. Instead, you should focus on turning your shoulders to the max comfy zone. After that, keep moving forward and let your club do its job naturally in the slot and down and through.

4. You should roll your wrists through the impact

This myth has been reigning for a long time. Seemingly, this idea was generated to make golfers release their wrists and encouraging the club to settle at the impact time. You see, the club will be released naturally and at a specific time if you hold it firmly but not too tightly. Your force of the swinging will permit the wrists to unfold and refold while the impact is being made, without any extra thrust from the golfer.

5. You should keep your left arm straight

This piece of advice is also worshipped by amateurs. Though a little of this advice is true, many love to take it to extreme and overdose the condition. They lock down their arm super stiff which results in robotic motion and ruins their opportunity of a solid strike. You sacrifice yardage and accuracy by following this advice. Even many coaches allow their students to bend their left arm slightly while swinging as the speed and momentum of downswing straightens the arm automatically. On the flipside, you should not over bend in order to draw the club back more than your body allows. You should simply rotate your shoulders till they hit the maximum bend suitable to your flexibility, and make sure to keep your left arm firm and not stiff.
