Golf Back Swing

How To Improve Your Golf Back Swing

 

Golf Back Swing

When you are ready to start the swing, to uncover the first fatal flaws that appear, with the horrible shots they produce, and to learn the first of the magic moves that will cut strokes from your score.

Ironically, these first flaws that creep into the average player’s swing produce an effect that is the exact opposite of what he wants. Just as you have, he has read and heard all his golfing life that certain things are essential.

The first of these is that you must pivot, the second is that the club must be taken away from the ball inside the projected line of flight, the third is that the wrists should be broken late and upward.

You twist your body as you start the take away.

This brings the club back on an inside line. Fine.

It opens the face of the club too. Excellent, you say, for you know it should be open at the top of the swing.

You delay the wrist break as long as possible and then let the wrists break upward.

Then what happens? The very thing you wanted most to avoid. You hit the ball from the outside in, with an open face (usually), and you get an outlandish slice.

 FREDERIC GOLF COURSE 3

Golf

If you close the face on the downswing you probably will get a pull, or a smother (if it’s closed too much), or a hook. If the club is outside the line far enough, you will even get that most horrible of all shots, a shank.

You are then thoroughly crestfallen. You have done everything you’d been told to do and you still hit those awful shots. Why?

You hit them because your early movements got you into such a position at the top that you could hardly hit anything else.

Your early pivot, your attempt to “turn in a barrel,” didn’t permit you to transfer your weight to your right leg. You kept too much of it on your left leg.

Taking the club away inside (it was probably quite sharply inside) got it moving too flat, as well as opening the face.

Then, to get the swing farther along, you had to bring the club up. At that point things began to get tight and uncomfortable.

To ease them you stopped the turn that your shoulders were making and let your left wrist collapse, or bend back and go under the club. This let you raise the club and get what you felt was a full swing, without being uncomfortable. The face of the club, of course, was wide open at the top.

What happened next was inevitable.

You started the downswing by regripping with your left hand, which had loosened, which made you get the club head started moving too soon. Your weight, being mostly on your left leg, moved back to the right leg.

You turned your hips and shoulders sharply, which threw the club onto the outside-in line you were trying to avoid. And you came down across the ball.

Chances are that as you did, your left knee snapped back and locked and your right knee bent straight out in front of you. And your follow-through, what there was of it, carried the club around you instead of up and out after the ball.

You, however, see none of these things as the cause of your bad shots. You feel only that you haven’t done well enough what you are trying to do, and in your efforts to meet the standards, you exaggerate the actions.

You don’t improve. You may easily get worse. And you finally end your practice session frustrated and dejected, or your round, if you are playing, with a shameful score.

The Answer:

Fortunately, there is a cure for all this, a cure that is almost miraculous. The magic move that puts you on the right track immediately is simply this:

Start the backswing with an early backward wrist break.


Watch How To Swing Instead Of Hit from the leading how to video provider. This tutorial will give you step-by-step instructions to guarantee you get good at …

Of course this sounds too simple to be true. It violates every rule you ever heard about starting the swing.

Your first reaction is that the best golfers have gone completely off their rockers. But it is true and unless your swing is now everything that you want it to be, you will find out how and why this magic move is made.

The wrist break itself is simple enough, actually, though if you have been breaking in the conventional way you may need a little time to convince yourself of what is to be done and to make yourself do it.

Since the backward break is one of the key points in our system, let’s be absolutely certain you understand what it is.

First, hold your right hand in front of you, fingers together and extended, thumb up and the palm squarely facing the left.

From that position bend the hand to the right, trying to make the fingers, come back toward the outside of the wrist.. You can’t get them anywhere near the wrist, of course, but a person with supple wrists can bend the hand back until hand and wrist form a right angle. This motion of the hand, straight back, is the backward wrist break.

The way the right hand should move from the wrist in the early backward break straight back toward the outside of the forearm, with no turning or rolling.

The standard wrist break is quite different. Hold your hand again as you held it before. Now, instead of bending it backward, bend it up, so that the thumb comes toward you.

That is the orthodox, accepted wrist break. Forget it.

You will get it eventually, but you don’t want it now.

You will remember that the grip we stipulated was one which, at address, showed only two knuckles of the left hand and one of the right hand.

You will also recall that the right hand was put on the club so that the left thumb lay right down the middle of the right palm. This brought the heel of the right hand against the big knuckle at the base of the left thumb.

Main Question:

GOLF: Should I bent my left knee more as I Backswing for long iron?


Best Answer: by Crystal N

A lot of times, this motion is just a natural reaction to a strong hip turn; which is probably the case for your friend. Think of it as if the hips are pulling that knee back a little. Sometimes golfers initiate their swing by moving their forward knee back and start their downswing by moving it towards the target. Other players start it with a good hip turn. There are a few players that I have seen that only do this knee motion while they are chipping the ball and they allow this to start their “rocking” motion as they chip so that they can keep their lower body more quiet over all.

The problem is, if you are not used to this motion, you might throw your natural swing sequence out of order by forcing it to happen. If this motion is not natural to you, it might cause you to sway and prevent a proper turn. Plus, this also changes your stance; thus making it harder to return to the ball on the correct path. It could also change your hand positioning and balance. Stop your swing at impact to see if the “V’s” formed by your thumb and hand are pointing at your trailing shoulder. Check to see if the clubface is aimed at the target. Most importantly, check to see if you are in the same position as you were at set up (such as standing up more, using a greater knee flex, or leaning unusually).

Chipping For Score

  Golf Tips – Chipping For Score

 

Golf Chipping

In golf, chipping is probably one of the more – less glamorous shots that you come in contact with on a regular basis yet it is one of the most important areas of competency when it comes to shaving strokes off your game.

You’ll struggle mightily to find a lower handicap golfer that isn’t a good chipper of the golf ball. It’s curious irony to me when I see and work with mid to higher handicappers that spend so little time on improving their merit around the greens. If this description fits you, think about it for a moment. by definition higher handicap golfers are not going to hit the greens as often and as such they are going to leave themselves with chip shots much more often. So why not spend some time getting better at chipping and immediately start taking strokes off your game.

CHIP FOR BIRDIE IN ST.ANDREWS

Golf Chipping

I can tell you unequivocally, that if you are a higher handicap golfer, spending some time to improve you chipping skills will save you at least one to two strokes per hole. now that’s some serious scoring. wouldn’t you agree?

Much of chipping around the green is confidence and with practice your confidence will improve along with your chipping so it has a snowballing effect. Let’s take a look at a few elements of chipping that will get you going in the right direction and on you way to lowering your golf score.

First of all, select the right tool for the job. One problem or mind set that many get in to is that; if I’m around the green and am going to chip . I use my pitching or sand wedge. If this is you, I want you to learn to select the proper club for the shot that is required.

Actually let me back up slightly. first evaluate the shot and where you want the ball to land. then get the club out that is going to do that job best for you. These first two items are your approach the chip shot that you have in front of you.

If you’re not sure about what club imparts what type of behavior on the golf ball, just try different clubs and shots around the practice green. work to get comfortable with several different clubs and approaches to your chipping.

The physical aspects of chipping are very straight forward.

You want to keep your hands slightly ahead of the clubhead. both in your set up and as your hands and club pass through the impact zone. Press your weigh slightly forward during your set up and keep your weight pressed slightly forward throughout your chipping motion.

Use a one piece take-a-way and motion. This is a biggie with higher handicappers. they tend to get ‘flippie’ with their hands. When this happens the tendency is for the club head to begin to accelerate past the hands (a bad thing) and the result is the club either ‘chunks’ behind the ball or you hit the dreaded blade shot clear across the green.

 

This video shows for good consistent golf chipping it is important that the left wrist stays firm through impact.

Never decelerate the club as you come into the hitting zone. Confidence plays a big part in this for people who aren’t good chippers. In order to get yourself to consistently accelerate through the shot; when you are practicing, initially don’t worry so much about a precise target and if you are going fly the ball too far past. Just work on a smooth chipping motion making good contact each and every time. We’ll work on distance control once you master the motion.

I’ve gotten a bit long here and I still want to cover a bit more on the swing, club selection for you, as well as some drills; but for now, just get yourself out there and work on these few basics and making good consistent contact and I’ll be back with soon and we will continue our work on lower your score by getting the ball much closer to the hole with your chipping game.

Until next time. remember – practice makes permanent.

Main Question:

Best club for chipping?????


Best Answer: by knh959

It depends upon the distance you want the ball to travel. Basically your swing should not change from one chip to the next. You should be able to use anything from a 7 up to a SW depending upon how far you are from the hole. Practice is the only way to determine which club to use under which circumstance. For example if you used nothing but your PW for chips, you’d have to hit it harder to chip 40 feet than to chip it 20 feet. That means you’d have to hit the PW harder to make it travel further. You’re better off using a lower lofted club for the longer chip and use the same swing that you used for the shorter chip. Let the club do the work for you.

Posture for a Powerful Swing

Powerful And Consistent Golf Swing

 

golf swing

Many professional golf instructors refer to golf posture as “spine angle.” If you’ve taken lessons or have spent much time learning proper technique to improve your game, you have most likely heard the phrase many times. Good posture for the golf swing can greatly influence your ability to produce power. Without stability of your posture, a powerful and effective golf swing is very difficult and can result in injury and strains.

LOOK AT THAT FORM!

golf swing

Good functional posture improves your swinging action and lets you transfer more force in your ball strike. Body structure and posture are unique traits, but an improper golf swing can cause certain muscle imbalances. These imbalances might not be obvious until they cause a disruptive physical problem.

The body slowly adapts to poor posture, and some body parts, like the neck, shoulder, back, and hip, may be overused to balance for loss of motion in other areas of the body. By performing a few simple exercises regularly, however, you can improve and maintain good posture and thus improve your swinging power.

 

Golf Tips and Golf Drills – How to Have the Proper Golf Posture Learn from IMG Academy Golf Instructor, Larry Marshall, how to have the proper golf posture w…

The goal of exercise for posture is to improve both static and dynamic balance to develop functional stability during the swing. The postural muscles are located throughout the body. The primary role of these muscles is to hold the skeletal system and joint structures in proper alignment so the larger and stronger muscles can produce the desired body movements while keeping good balance.

Some common problems that are affected by posture are:

  • Difficulty keeping your eye on the ball during your swing.

  • Difficulty to transfer force from the lower body to the upper body.

  • Compromised swing patterns.

  • Poor club head speed and club control.

By performing a golf fitness routine on a regular basis, you will increase overall muscle strength, balance, and flexibility. All of these contribute to your ability to maintain an effective golf posture for a powerful golf swing no matter what the lie.

Commit yourself to proper preparation through strength and flexibility exercises designed to address current muscle imbalances and you’ll unleash a whole new level of play.

Main Question:

GOLF UPRIGHT POSTURE/SWING VERSUS BENT POSTURE FLATTER?


Best Answer: by jmeister_1

Check out the book “The Plane Truth for Golfers” by Jim Hardy.

You will see that he states that there are two different swing planes. One is upright and the other is flat. You need to match the swing mechanics to your posture to employ the proper techniques.

The one plane (flatter) swing is more body and that is why you feel it that way. You do not want to mix the techniques such as an upright two plane swing by bending over. That would also explain why bending over did not feel right with your swing.

Good luck!

Play Better Golf

 

 Better Golf Through Knowledge

 

golf

It is said that “What you don’t know can’t hurt you”. In golf, that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Let’s take a look at a few things the average golfer probably doesn’t know about and how these things are probably costing you strokes.

Practice makes perfect… Not!

Practice only makes perfect if you are reinforcing proper swing techniques. For most golfers, a practice session consists of ripping through a bucket of balls on their lunch break or on the way home from work. A trip to the range will not help you unless you are going to spend the time to “work” on your swing, and not just reinforce those bad habits you’ve already developed. Use the following suggestions to help you turn that grip it and rip it pit stop at the range into a true practice session.

1. Only bring one club to the range with you at a time.

2. Hit a small bucket of balls and take your time with each swing.

3. Slow down your swing and try to hit the ball straight, not far.

 GOT THE SWING

Go ahead, blame your clubs!

There’s a good chance that your clubs could be at fault for all those miss hits, even if they are brand new and cost you over $2000. The problem is, if they don’t fit you and your swing, then even when you make that perfect swing the ball isn’t going to end up where you wanted it to be. Club length, shaft flex, lie angle, and grip size will each greatly affect your golf game if they are not properly fitted to you. Get custom fitted for clubs and see what the difference is compared to what you have now. You could be losing a lot of strokes because of them.

Get some balls!

But don’t get just any golf balls. And that doesn’t mean that you should run out and buy the most expensive ball on the market. You need to get the right kind of ball for your game. Do you need extra distance? How about stopping power? Or soft feel? With so many different types of balls on the market today it makes it difficult to find a ball that suits your game. Here are a few tips on what different caliber golfers should look for in a ball.

1. Beginner – Distance, Durability, $

2. Intermediate – Higher Spin, Softer Feel, $$

3. Advanced – Tour Quality, Distance, Spin, Feel, $$$

There are a lot of little things that go into making a great golfer. Having a great swing helps, but that is the hardest part to get right. The easiest way to cut strokes is to learn about golf club fitting, ball selection, and practice routines and how they can improve your game. You’ll be surprised by the results.

Main Question:

What does it mean to have a golf club shaft “pured”?


Best Answer: by Doug

What is SST PURE?

SST PURE® is a patented process of shaft alignment that analyzes a golf shaft to find its most stable orientation. Using proprietary patent pending computer software and sensitive data acquisition sensors, the SST PURE Shaft Alignment System quickly locates the “neutral” plane in each shaft. By assembling the club with the shaft in this SST PUREd position, off line twisting and bending during the golf swing and at impact are greatly minimized. The SST PURE system also generates a printout for each shaft, showing its structural and performance analysis.

Why do shafts need to be PUREd?

Like snowflakes and fingerprints, no two golf shafts are exactly the same. Every shaft contains irregularities in straightness, roundness and stiffness that are inherent to the manufacturing process. These structural inconsistencies can negatively or positively affect a shaft’s performance depending on how the shaft is aligned in the clubhead. SST PURE locates the most stable orientation in any shaft.

The SST PURE process works on any shaft, regardless of its material; steel, graphite, even boron or thermoplastic shafts benefit from the SST PURE process.

What are the performance benefits of the SST PURE process?

The result of the SST PURE process is that players of all skill levels hit the ball longer, straighter and more uniformly consistent than ever before. Independent testing on players of all skill level has established that SST PURE improves impact repeatability on the center of the clubface by up to 51 percent. Clubs that have been PUREd have a softer feel than randomly installed shafts, which is the current standard for club assembly.

Fairway Woods

Fairway Woods

Fairway Woods

Fairway woods, like irons, are progressive in nature. The same materials are used in the clubheads of fairway woods. Woods feature deep clubheads that are made of metal, usually steel or a titanium alloy. They are called “woods” because the clubheads used to be made of wood. Metals came into broad use in the 1980s, and “fairway woods” are now sometimes called “fairway metals.” TaylorMade SLDR Fairway Wood is a good choice.

 

Fairway woods come with different numbers associated with them, which indicates the amount of loft. Starting at two (the driver counts as the one wood), fairway woods can go up as far as eight and nine, but these higher numbered fairway woods are not as common. The higher the number wood, the more loft the golf club provides. For example, a three wood will hit a ball lower and longer than a five wood, which will hit a ball higher and shorter. Fairway woods can be used for shots from (you guessed it) the fairway, or from off the tee instead of a driver, for a more accurate tee shot. A beginner wood set would normally consist of a three, five and seven wood, and cost somewhere in the range of $150 to $300 dollars.


Buying the Right Fairway Woods

Fairway woods are an excellent alternative solution for the driver off the tee. There are three factors to make the fairway woods is a club favorite. Many golfers feel more comfortable while standing on a long fairway with longer and lower profile wood rather than a long iron is more difficult to beat. It is much easier to get the ball in the air out of the fairway, if you have a lower center gravity. This also applies if you are in the rough or sand. You can take advantage of more distance without having to swing again. You have a club that is greater than the long iron. You also can have more control long. Many people who replaced them with long iron fairway woods. If you want try to use wood instead of iron for the benefit of distance and control You may want to consider a few things. 5 wood equal to 2 iron, 7 wood for the 3 or 4 iron and 9 timber for 5 iron.

Fairway Woods

There are three basic fairway woods that are used in tournaments. These clubs offer greater distance with the least amount of control. The three woods used in tournaments are traditionally the one wood, which is also called the driver, the three wood, and the 5 wood. You will want to practice driving with each of these on the driving range and get a feel for their distance and control as there are times when each of these will be a good idea for your golf game.

Setup Is Crucial.

Your setup with fairway woods is critical.

The key is to place your hands directly below your chin when hitting fairway woods. If your hands are too close to your body, you’ll have a hard time making a good turn. If you start them under your chin, they’ll be the right distance from your body. You’ll have an easier time turning your shoulders and swinging on an elliptical path, which encourages a level or slightly ascending strike of the ball.

To get maximum distance down the fairway use your fairway woods. When you are new to the game, fairway woods can be harder to control than irons, but you should gain knowledge of how to use them as soon as possible. When you master your fairway woods you will be able to hit longer distances and this will help you lower your scores. An excellent fairway wood shot will get you off to a great start for the rest of the hole.

Most amateur golfers have a hard time hitting the longer golf club irons and fairway woods. Hybrid golf clubs were designed to combine the best features of the longer golf clubs irons and fairway woods. Even professional golfers are now adding hybrid golf clubs to the golf clubs in their golf bag. Hybrid golf clubs can run as much as the price of a driver. The budget conscious buyer should be able to find discount prices on clone hybrid golf clubs, or sometime known as knockoff hybrid golf clubs.

Main Question:

How do I hit my fairways woods higher?


Best Answer: by Michael

This a very difficult question without the ability to see one swing the club with the fairway woods. I have seen very elderly men that are not flexible hit high fairway woods. The best advice if you want quicker results is to ask a Club Pro for a short lesson so he can see what is going on and then he will be able to help you out. No one here can really give you sound advice as there are many factors that could be contributing to your dilemma. There are also many on line videos you can google. ” How to hit Fairway woods” or go to You Tube and ask for the same.

Good luck with your findings and hit em high.
