I like to compare the golf swing to music. Music needs to have a good tempo, good rhythm, and balance to work right . So it goes 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 adjusting the width of your stance to find the one that is suitable for you. Try a different combination of stances, from wide to narrow . If your stance ends up about shoulder width apart you will have harmonized with most golfers. Once you have found you perfect golf stance practice it over and over again so that it becomes natural . You will also need to practice the various types of weight shifts throughout the golf swing. It is much more complex than shifting your weight from one foot to the other. You may find it helpful to talk to a golf teaching professional on how to do this right .
Another good golf swing tip involves hitting into the wind. The natural tendency is to hit it hard. This is a false assumption. If you hit your ball with tremendous force your trajectory will suffer. "Swing easy into the breezy" says Greg Norman. Follow that advice and you will have much greater results.
So remember to find your proper stance, shift your weight, and hit easy 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 you will need to practice! Be persistent, and you will see huge results.
