There are several tips and tricks you can use to better your golfing technique. Golf is an excellent sport that anyone can enjoy. Here are a couple of tips you can use to help you master the game.
Swing in Slow Motion
There are two parts to your swing; the backswing and the downswing, and both the parts are different. The first part is about creating energy and the second part is about expending the energy. The trick in executing a perfect shot is to separate the two so that they don’t merge together. You can do this by pausing the backswing and then starting the downswing. If you execute the backswing at high speed, there is no way you can pause it before the downswing.
Let you backswing go in a smooth backward move in slow motion. Let the club, your shoulders, arms and hips stop at the same time at the top before letting it come down in your downswing.
Coil into Your Right Thigh
Your right thigh bears all the pressure of the motion, so if you execute the slow backward swing, it will cause the pressure to rest on your right thigh. The more pressure you feel in your right thigh, the more powerful your swing will be. The pressure you feel in your right thigh is the power of your swing. Unlike what most golf instructors will tell you, you do not need to move six inches to the right to get power behind your shot. Just by making a deliberate, solid turn, you will generate sufficient pressure on your right thigh and power your shot.
