The Golf Swing Is Counter Intuitive

The Golf Swing


golf swing


The golf swing is outwardly similar to many other motions involving swinging a tool or playing implement, such as an axe or a baseball bat; however, unlike many of these motions, the result of the swing is highly dependent on several sub motions being properly aligned and timed, to ensure that the club travels up to the ball in line with the desired path, the clubface is in line with the swing path, and the ball impacts the center or “sweet spot” of the clubface. The ability to do this consistently, across a complete set of clubs with a wide range of shaft lengths and clubface areas, is a key skill for any golfer, and takes a significant effort to achieve.

The golf swing is the one thing that you should practice more than anything else. Many people have a tendency of letting their left knee collapse onto the right knee when they are in their back swing. By doing this, it will make the shoulder drop and then forces your hips to overturn and sway. Try to imagine your left knee actually going towards the target during your back swing. Now you will feel tension in both of your knees as well as stability. Just imagine that you have something like a ball keeping your knees apart.


Golf swing made simple with Meandmygolf Professionals Piers Ward and Andy Proudman. They teach you how to perfect your golf swing in the easiest way possible…

 So you want to learn golf swing mechanics? Don’t even think about getting an expensive tutor to teach the secrets of swinging a golf club. No matter what people say, there is no one perfect swing that is going to make you a master. You can make your own perfect swing by endeavoring. Here’s some handy tips to get the ball rolling:Once you understand what golf swing mechanics are, you will grasp the foundation essential for a better swing. These are established on your stance, posture, golf grip and movement.A flawed stance will adversely influence your overall distance. A good stance and flawed grip will yield the same results. Grasping the club too firmly will also reduce your distance. Opt instead for a neutral grasp of the club. When swinging, try to keep a consistent speed throughout the movement.Doing everything right may still be for naught if your not fit enough to play. Exercising regularly is crucial for a good game. It will help you to avert injuries and improve upon your current game.

Main Question:

Can playing softball mess up my golf swing?

Best Answer: by Gerald R

 I would say don’t listen to anyone, until you try it for yourself. Only you can anwer that question after you have played both for a while. Some people have a hard time chewing gum and walking at the same time, but most of us can manage.

If you’ve been asking yourself “how do I increase my golf swing speed to achieve straight and far shot?” you’re not the only one who is asking this question. Thousands of golfers are asking the same question. In fact to increase golf swing speed is by far the most common problems to most average golfers. By increasing your swing speed, you are also increasing the chances for lowering your score and hopefully able to achieve the main goal of playing golf which is getting a single professional handicap. It is very impressive to see many new golfers able to pick up the straight and far shot steadily fast. But how come there is still many beginners who has started out the same time as them but yet struggling to improve the same problem? From this fact we can see clearly that having a proper swing technique and procedure is the key to increase your swing speed and attain excellent score throughout your game.

 Keeping your head reasonably still is actually more important than keeping your eyes on the ball at impact. You can move your head and keep your eyes on the ball, but if you move your head before impact, it will result in a poor shot. Your head is close to your upper chest, which is the centre of your golf swing. Therefore, any movement away from centre will cause you to sway and affect your swing.

Fix Golf Slice – Add Yards To Your Drives

Fix Your Golf Slice



Fix golf slice is a thought on many amateur golfers’ minds.  Studies reveal over 80% of all amateur golfers slice the ball.  There have been more training aids, drills and tips to fix the golf slice that I can’t even begin to count.

If you hit a golf slice, have you taken lessons; bought any training aids, and done several drills only to still hit a slice?  What a frustrating situation!  Do you realize what’s causing your golf slice?

A golf slice is caused by the clubface coming across the ball from outside the target line, creating side-spin on the ball.  Upon first thought, this may seem like a mechanical issue.  And it is…but if you dig a little deeper, you’ll find it’s a ‘physical’ issue.

You see…your body dictates your ability to swing the club efficiently.  If your body has ‘physical limitations’, your swing will not be mechanically sound and swing faults will appear.

In the golf swing there are many compensations for lack of proper mechanics.  If you can’t make a 90 degree shoulder turn on the backswing, you’ll do whatever it takes to feel like you are making a full turn.

A good example of this would be to rotate your hips beyond the desired 45 degrees to enable your body to make a full backswing.  What this does is rob you of power.  You have no torque built up in your core to unleash into the ball at impact.

The same thing with a golf slice.

A golf slice is caused by the upper body getting ahead of the lower body, creating an “over-the-top” move, which in turn results in your clubface slashing across the ball and creating side-spin.  Here comes the banana ball!

Your first inclination will be to take a lesson to fix this.  If that doesn’t work, you might buy a training aid.  If that doesn’t work you’ll buy an “offset” driver to help eliminate your golf slice.

Does this sound familiar?

Now the real answer!  Take a break on your lessons.  Don’t buy anymore training aids.  And keep your normal driver in your bag.

You need to work on you core rotational flexibility to be able to initiate the downswing with your lower body first, to avoid the upper body getting ahead of it.  It’s that simple.  The minute your able to separate the upper and lower body upon initial move down…you’ll see that golf slice improve dramatically.

Doesn’t that make sense?

Along with fixing your golf slice, you’ll add up to 30 yards to your drives.  You will get more roll when the ball lands from a draw ball flight.  A golf slice is a weak shot that does not penetrate the air for maximum distance.

All of my programs, dvds, and books focus on core rotational strength and flexibility which will improve your power output and eliminate swing faults.  You will not experience compensations on the golf course anymore.

When you work on your “machine”, your golf swing takes care of itself!  You will finally eliminate the thought, “fix golf slice”.

5 Traits Of A Good Golf Instructor

Teaching Golf

golf course


With the increasingly popularity of golf, the demand to fill related careers is also on the rise.  Many amateur golfers turn to a golf instructor to help them develop their techniques, so teaching golf is a viable career choice for many golf enthusiasts.  Teaching golf isn’t for everyone, though.  See if you have what it takes to make your living as a golf instructor.

You know everything (or almost everything) there is to know about golf.  You have to know a subject extremely well if you are going to be able to teach it.  Although you may be counting on having only beginning students whose knowledge of the sport is next to nil, you will most likely have intermediate and advanced students too, and they will look to you to help them hone their skills.  Before you pursue a career as a golf instructor, ask yourself honestly if you have enough expertise on the sport to assume the role of an expert.

You’ve played golf, taught golf, and/or worked in other areas of the industry.  Part of knowing golf is playing it regularly.  If you don’t play golf regularly, you probably don’t have what it takes to teach the sport.  Also, it is very helpful if you have previously taught golf or worked in the industry.  If you have, you are more likely to know a lot about it.  Remember, as a golf instructor you are sending the message that you are an expert on the sport, so make sure you know your golf before you take the job.

You know the techniques and theories of teaching.  Simply knowing a lot about a subject does not mean you will be a competent teacher.  If you don’t believe this, think back on how many teachers you had in school that were really knowledgeable, but still failed to inspire their students.  In order to be an effective golf instructor, you must understand basic teaching techniques.  After all, you will need to be able to communicate with students of every skill level, from the most bumbling beginners to the most assured intermediate and advanced students.

Your supply of patience runs exceptionally deep.  Patience ought to be a prerequisite for any teaching job.  Any time you are trying to teach knowledge or skills to someone who has next to no clue what they are doing, you are bound to run into a multitude of frustrations.  A golf instructor who does not have a deep well of patience is likely to feel overwhelmed by stress and frustration every time he or she has a lesson with a truly clueless golfer.

You truly love the game of golf.  You would think that a true appreciation for the game of golf would be a given for anyone looking for a job as a golf instructor, but that isn’t always the case.  Other features of the job may attract prospective instructors: the flexibility of the hours and scheduling, a laid-back work atmosphere, or the nontraditional aspect of the job.  However, if you don’t feel passionately about the sport you intend to teach, you will not last very long.  A good golf instructor needs to be able to eat, drink, and breathe golf without getting sick of it.

Being a golf instructor may sound like an easy, fun job, but it takes a special kind of person to fill those shoes.  A successful golf instructor needs to have not just one or a few of these characteristics, but all of them.  Knowledge, experience, skill, patience, and passion are all necessary ingredients in the formation of an expert.

Check Your Grip

Golf Basics


First things first; if you’re going to take up learning the game of golf, the first thing that you actually and literally come in contact with is your golf club. So it seems only logical that we start with the grip.

Understanding and establishing a proper grip is your first step. The grip sets the tone for all else to come. A good grip allows you to swing your club with control during full swings with maximum speed. It allows for you to bring the clubface squarely through the impact zone, and determines how much you club face rotation you get.

You’ll want to find a grip pressure that allows you to deliver enough force to the ball without the club twisting at impact; yet you don’t want your hands and forearms overly tight and stiff.

Grip pressure was once described by Sam Snead as though you are holding a bird in your hands and you want to hold tight enough that the bird can’t fly away yet not so tight as to hurt the bird.

For our purposes here and especially you are just learning how to grip the golf club, we’ll discuss gripping the club with a neutral type grip (neither favoring a draw or a fade).

In this position the “V’s” created with the thumb and forefinger as you address the golf ball will point just to the right of your chin (right handed golfer). In fact, with this grip, someone standing directly across from you would see only the first two knuckles of your left hand. So, two knuckles of the left hand showing and your “V’s” pointing to just right of your chin and you have a neutral – traditional type golf grip.


With your forefinger and little finger that meet underneath the club grip; you can either choose to overlap these to fingers or you can interlock them; whichever is more comfortable to you and gives you the most confidence.

Hold the club more toward your fingers than back in the palm of the hand. We want to be able to get a good natural wrist cock.

When you are first just introducing a golf club to your hands, don’t worry about whacking golf balls right away. Rather, get used to the grip first. As you next begin to learn about address and set up, spend time just swinging the club back and forth and get used to how the club and the grip feel. Don’t worry too much hitting a ball at this early juncture.

Down the road of your learning curve just bit, you’ll no doubt become curious about ‘drawing’ and or ‘fading’ the golf ball. Drawing or fading the golf ball begins with your grip. Although drawing or fading your golf shot goes beyond the scope of this article, I want to touch on this as it relates to our discussion on the grip.

Remembering your initial neutral grip that we discussed; if you want to grip to draw the ball you’ll rotate your hands/grip slightly clockwise. In other words, this will produce a three knuckle grip… up from your two knuckle grip we talked about earlier. To grip to fade the ball, you’ll go a knuckle the other way. So, you will reduce your neutral two knuckle grip down one to a one knuckle grip.

I mention this, not to imply that you will want to immediately want to begin working your golf shots from right to left and left to right; rather I want to give you a basic understanding how the golf grip works first from the neutral hand position.

Start building your golf swing with your teaching professional by laying a good foundation that starts with – – – the grip.

Buying Great Golf Clubs

Without Emptying Your Wallet


Golf Clubs

Golf clubs are some of the most expensive accessories to buy when it comes to sporting goods. However, there is no reason why they should be this way. Expensive golf clubs usually have more technology and more features, but for the average golfer it is a complete waste of money. It is possible to get clubs at a reasonable rate. The surprising thing is that most of the time these clubs will be even better for you than the more expensive ones. Read on to find out about some of the reasons why you should stick with cheaper clubs, as well as some of the places that you can buy them.

For a beginning golfer, the temptation to buy more expensive clubs comes from the illusion that they will improve the skill as if by magic. The truth is that an amazing golf club requires an amazing technique in order to make it work as desired. Expensive golf clubs are designed so that they are more efficient and less forgiving. With the slightest wrong move, you will throw the trajectory of the ball so far off track that your stroke will be laughable. If you stick with beginners golf clubs (as you should), the heads of the clubs will be much more forgiving and you will be able to practice your technique without completely embarrassing yourself in the process.

Secondhand clubs are also a good way to save money and still get some nice clubs. If you golf with people who like to stay on the cutting edge of technology, they are likely to have older clubs that are still of a very high quality level. Speak with them about purchasing the used golf clubs. With used golf clubs you need to be particularly careful, and look for anything that would compromise the quality of the clubs. Sometimes when used enough, even golf clubs will wear out and become nearly unusable. Before any money exchanges hands, take the clubs out for a test game. If you are a good friend with the person who you would like to buy from, they might even let you use the clubs for a longer period of time.


So where do you find older models of clubs, or used clubs? Auctions and pawn shops are two of the best places to go for golf clubs of this type. Golf clubs are almost a staple of auctions, and you are likely to have at least one choice. If you spend a lot of time at auctions, you will be able to have quite a few different choices for golf clubs. You will simply have to learn to recognize golf clubs and judge whether they are a worthy investment. The same goes with pawn shops. If you are able to recognize the features that you desire in a golf club, you will have endless opportunities to check for these in various venues. If you end up finding clubs that fit with what you are looking for, they will likely be much cheaper than if you had bought them at a retail store.

Cheap golf clubs are very possible to come by, but they are very risky at the same time. If you know enough about what you’re looking for, you can look at a golf club and immediately tell if it is something that is worth your time. But if you are inexperienced in buying golf clubs, you are not likely to have this knowledge. Therefore you need to carefully plan out all of the things that you are going to look for in your future golf clubs, and bring this list with you when you go to scout out for possibilities. This will help you in every way, allowing you to recognize what you need and weed out what you don’t. It may even help you to avoid wasting your money on something that isn’t exactly what you need.
