A Few Beginner Golf Swing Tips

Making golf swing improvements is a must for a lot of golfers. Golf swing improvement usually means a much improved golf score. But to get yourself to a better level in golf you will need to practice. Here are a few tips that you can use to get a better golf swing and a lower golf score.

I like to match up the golf swing to music. Rhythm, balance and tempo are important in music as it is in golf . So it goes with the golf swing! Music has to have a solid foundation in order to be considered good. The same is true with the golf swing you must have a good foundation, namely your stance.

When you practice hitting balls adjust the width of your stance to find the best stance that works for you. Narrow your stance then widen your stance. A lot of golfers find their perfect stance to be about shoulder width apart. Once you have found you perfect golf stance practice it over and over again so that it becomes a natural feel for you . An additional thing that you will need to practice is how to properly shift your weight throughout the swing. This is a very important part of the golf swing and it is more complex than just shifting your weight back and forth between your feet. The best way to learn weight shift is to take some lessons from a golf professional .

My next tip is about hitting the golf ball into the wind. You would think that you would have to hit your golf ball harder if you are hitting into the wind. This type of thinking is just plain wrong . Trying to muscle your ball into the wind will result in poor ball flight . To have better control of your ball you will need to remember to swing easy. Following that advice will improve your results.

To sum things up, learn how to shift your weight properly, find your personal golf stance, and swing easy when hitting into the wind. Improvement in these three areas, will result in better golf ball control, longer distance off the tee, and of course your golf score will look better as well. But it will only happen if you practice. Results will become evident if you don't give up.


  1. Thanks for these great tips. I especially like the idea of matching up golf swing to music.

    Here's a toast to you for your always interesting blog and a smile-maker for your readers...

    Why do golfers wear two pair of pants? Because they might get a hole in one.

    Golfer went to his priest to find out if there was a good golf course in heaven. Priest said he'd try to find out. A couple days later the golfer sees the Priest and asks him what he found out. Priest says, "Well, I have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that they have a terrific golf course in heaven. It's better than Palm Springs. It's better that La Costa. It's better than anywhere." "Well, what's the bad news?" the golfer asked. "Well, the bad news is that your Tee-off time is tomorrow morning."


  2. Now i'm taking interest in golf. You told the easiest way to learn golfing.Your post includes great tips and you managed to keep it simple and understandable.

  3. A good tempo thought is a three count with 1 and 2 on the back swing and 3 come forward. Solid contact with a square face and swing path are essential.

  4. I agree with you, that in order to improe your golfing skills, it is important to practise. That is basically how it is with any skill in our world. Practise makes perfect!

    I think that swinging to music is a really good idea and I have to admit that I haven't heard of that one before. I'll certainly give it a try.

    My stance is probably my worst problem to be honest. It's weird, it just doesn't feel right when I swing so that is what I will focus on improving.

    I actually thought that hitting the golf ball harder into the wind was ideal but then again, I'm an amateur. Thanks for the great tips!
