Golf Swing Drills: Perfect For The Aspiring Golfer!

By Nylah I. Mcthige

Golf is not the kind of game that you can master you are on the playing field. Golf requires hours of practice, preferably hours also spent with your very own golf instructor. To be a decent golf player, you will have to practice at it, and practice always means doing golf swing drills.

Practicing golf swing drills is imperative because it makes the golfer practice the whole motions of a golf swing. During the tee off, a solid swing will enable to bring the golf ball closer to the putting hole. On the other hand, a lousy swing at a tee off probably means that the golfer either hit a block or sliced the ball.

A swing path that is much too shallow during a swing indicates that there is a block on the right. An open club face hitting the golf club could subsequently be the root cause of a slice. We will now proceed to discuss methods on how one can prevent these mistakes.

First, check the grip on your golf club. The hands should be forming a V-shape with the use of your thumb and forefinger. Do remember that it is not necessary to hold the golf club tightly.

In actual fact, a tight grip on the golf club may actually make the clubface to open, thereby causing a bad swing. Practice these simple stances regularly, and it does not even have to be done at the golf course. If you do decide to practice at home, try doing so in front of a mirror just so you can watch your posture.

When doing a follow-through, try to pause midway to inspect yourself. Are the toe points of your golf club pointed in the right direction? To create a good slice and block technique, try releasing the trailing side over the lead hand.

Some swings are affected by the simple fact that the golfer is mispositioned from the golf ball. One should not be positioned too far or too close to the ball and this can be avoided by making sure that the alignment is according to the shape of a square. Also, check for divots that are either too shallow or too deep.

Then you have the problem of the flat swing. As with the divot, the flat swing will also be avoided with golf swing drills. For a more detailed explanation on how one can improve on golfing, check out The Simple Swing e-book.
