In this article I will point out 6 easy to follow steps to achieve that correct golf swing. Grip, posture, pivot, the hand and arm relationship, alignment and the most important of all which is the mental side of things.
Put these simple steps into your practice and before you know you will be on your way to developing that ideal correct golf swing that you have always wanted.
The grip should be a normal hand above hand grip, with the right hand being at the bottom of the club with the thumb facing towards the ground flat on the club and the left hand above the right doing exactly the same pattern.
You should have your legs at about shoulder width apart with the toes pointing out at 5 -10 degree's and with the knees slightly bent. Bend at the hips and keep the back straight at all times. A good way to keep the back straight is to contract the abdominals when you are bending at the hips, this acts as a stabilizer for your back.
The pivot is how you move your body from head to toe, without the
use of the arms. When you pivot to hit the golf ball, the correct way is to pivot at the hips when you are swinging at the golf ball. Do not pivot at the back as this can cause some serious spinal damage.
Hand And Arm Relationship
The hand and arm relationship becomes easy with practice and
following the fundamentals of the golf swing such as grip, posture
and the pivot will give you the correct hand and arm relationship.
Alignment fundamental of the golf swing, is where we choose our target and then we focus on it. Think of nothing else except for the target that you are aiming for. Point the golf club at the target like a gun and look down the scope or line of the club at the target and then aim your golf swing in that same target.
A calm mental approach is needed to reach that correct golf swing.
Before the golf swing or the golf game, pretend that you have already taken the shot and seen it in your head. Walk around the golf course in your mind before you even arrive there. Simple tasks like this using the mental fundamental will have you on your way to having a great game of golf and a correct golf swing to match it.
