Put your entire body into your swing to give it force. Beginners believe that the strength in their swing comes solely from the arms, but the truth is that using only your arms will give you a very weak shot. Moving the whole body with the club motion is much more effective. Avoid being super-tight or ultra-loose with your golf swing. If your grip is too tight, you will likely steer your shots to the right. However, if you don’t hold the club tightly enough, you’ll hit the ball too far left. If you have the right grip, you can control the direction your ball will go in. Don’t take your golf game too seriously! If you can accept your mistakes with a sense of humor, you will be able to learn from them and move on with your game. Even if in a hurry to get started, head to the range and hit a few balls before you take your first shot. These practice shots help so you don’t get off to a cold start.
Once you have your stance lined up, be sure to involve your hips in the swing so that power is transferred from your back foot to your front foot. This will help to improve your swing’s power and increase the distance that the ball travels. You want to always think about how you can improve your game, by even practicing your swing on a golf simulator. Practicing your swing frequently will improve your game with minimal effort, so schedule in time to do so regularly. Retain the proper stance. If you don’t know if you’re standing properly, you can find out by doing an easy test. Just try tapping your toes upwards and downwards while keeping your feet still. Only a small amount of effort should be required to do this. If you feel that striking the ball is very hard, then you may be leaning into the ball too much. If it seems too easy, you are leaning too far away from the ball.
