Investigating the 4 Elements of Your Golfing Swing

By Joe M. Randolph

Golf could be a relaxing hobby and sport that provides the advantages of getting exercise, enjoying the outside, and alleviating stress. if you're serious about the game and have trouble with your golfing swing, the basic fundamental of the game, your stress level will annul all of the other benefits related to golfing.


Everything built well starts with a solid base. Your golfing swing is not different. when starting to investigate your golfing swing start by concentrating on your position.

With golf club in hand take your normal stance and approach the ball as if you are going to take your swing. Then lay your driver down so that the shaft is touching the toes of your left and right shoe. This will reveal the direction of your feet in relationship to the pin that you are driving the ball towards.

If the golf club is not directly pointing towards the pin or your target adjust the shaft of the club accordingly. Then reposition your feet so that the toes are touching the shaft of the club.

The next part of your position addresses your shoulders and hips. They also should be totally in-line or parallel with the club lying at your feet.

With this under consideration, pick up your golfing club and practice some swings keeping your shoulders and hips parallel to that hypothetical line there at the base of your toes. Your golfing swing must reflect this rule of being parallel to the hypothetical line aimed at your target.


The 2nd step in investigating your golfing swing is observing the swing itself. Of particular help might be the help of a golf partner to help with the investigating of your form.

The first part of your golfing swing to study is the bringing of the club back to its uppermost position. The particular start of the swing should be even in nature and fluid. In addition, while your club is on the backward portion of the swing and overhead, hesitate for a particularly slight moment.

Following that slight hesitation let your downward golfing swing flow in the same even nature towards the ball. It is vital to remember that speed and forcefulness aren't traits of a good golfing swing.

Additionally, take note of your downward golf swing beginning from this upward position. Do you keep your wrists straight or is there a hint of wrist movement? It is recommended that the movement of the wrists should take place just as the golf club is horizontal to the ground.


Thirdly, in investigating your golfing swing, when your club makes contact with the golfball it is crucial to remember that you aren't playing baseball. The power to drive the ball shouldn't be drawn from your arms and shoulders. The drive given to the ball should be drawn from your whole higher body as well as your legs. Also, do not forget to follow the trail of your club that was lying at your feet to place your position. Your golfing swing should stay parallel with the shaft of that club that was directed towards your target.

Follow Through

The last vital part in researching your golf swing is swinging thru the drive. It is vital when you have made contact with the ball that you continue for an additional 5 to 6 inches following in parallel the hypothetical trail of the golfing club laying on the ground.

Finally, complete the swing with that very same liquid motion bringing the club to the opposite side of the body and above the head. Good luck!
