Good Golf Swing Tips for Beginners

Many golfers work hard at trying to improve their golf swings. Golf swing improvement usually means a better golf score. Practice is the only thing that will help you. If you want to learn to have a good golf swing and if you want to lower your golf score then follow these tips.

I like to compare the golf swing to music. Music and the golf swing need good tempo, balance, and rhythm . It's no different with the golf swing! The foundation of a song makes it good music. Just like music a good golf swing must have a solid foundation and this starts with a golfers stance.

While hitting balls at the driving range, concentrate on varying the width of your stance to find the one that is suitable for you. Narrow your stance then widen your stance. If your stance ends up about shoulder width apart you will have matched most golfers. Your stance, once found, needs to be put into automatic memory through practice. This will allow you to do it automatically on the golf course . An additional thing that you will need to practice is how to properly shift your weight throughout the swing. It is much more complex than shifting your weight from one foot to the other. A golf professional can help you with this particular part of the golf swing.

My next tip is about hitting the golf ball into the wind. The natural tendency is to hit it hard. This is a false assumption. Trying to muscle your ball into the wind will result in poor trajectory . Your swing thought should be to swing easy. That tip will help you tremendously.

In conclusion, hit easy into the wind, learn how to have the proper weight shift and the proper golf stance. Combining these three things will result in better accuracy, further distance, and lower golf scores. Practice is the key that will get the results you want. Don't give up and your efforts will pay off.
