Of course, there are many elements to the full golf swing. However, there are essential fundamentals that are most critical to ingrain consistency into your game. In this article, we discuss the most essential golf swing tips for a solid golf swing. Note: these golf swing tips are for right handed golfers.
Golf Swing Grip
1.We recommend the Vardon Overlap grip, which is the most common golf grip. With the Vardon Overlap grip, the little finger of the right hand (trailing hand) is placed in the crease of the forefinger and middle finger of the left hand (leading hand).
2.Place the thumb of your left hand within the lifeline of your right hand.
3.Your final golf swing grip should lie in fingers and not the palms.
4.Your grip pressure determines amount of wrist hinge and release – strive for a "5 to 6" on a scale of 1 to 10 where 10 is "tight" and 1 is "loose."
5.We recommend a "Neutral" grip for the majority of golf swing shots. A neutral golf swing grip results in a "square" clubface at impact. To check to make sure you have a neutral golf swing grip, check that the "V's" formed by thumb and index finger of each hand should point between right shoulder and chin.
Golf Swing Posture
1.Your body weight should feel like it is in the middle of feet, not too much in the heels or toes.
2.Tilt from your hips approximately thirty degrees.
3.Keep your knees flexed slightly..
4.Keep back straight with your chin up and off your chest.
5.Let your arms hang freely.
