The Simple Golf Swing Basics


Visitors: 132

I remember the time when I picked up golf, I wanted to have a swing like Tiger Woods. Have you heard the saying, “Its better to look good and lose then to look bad and win. " No dis respect to Mr Jim Furyk who has an interesting looking re routing motion of his golf swing, which though looks unconventional, still does the job pretty well.

To have a simple golf swing, one that can last 18 holes, and not just the 1st 9, I strongly feel that the basics of golf must be very very sound. Its very hard to replicate a golf swing if there is no consistency in the basics. Things like, Grip, Posture, Tilit of the Spine angle, Take away, are the arms dangling down, ball position. If there is no consistency in these areas, its very hard to build a sound and simple golf swing.

1 thing I found very helpful is to watch videos and read ebooks. I think for beginners to intermediates players, learning from ebooks and videos is many times better then hiring a coach. This is because the basics can be picked up quite effectively and when we forget certain concepts (concepts that are actually basic to the expert but are somewhat new to the golf newbie), we can easily go refer back to the material, refresh our golf knowledge then head back to the range to practice that particular golf thought.

As we progress further and when we wish to take things up a notch, then its worth spending the money to hire a good coach, or practice with a close friend, and make sure the take a video of you. Sometimes comments we may not agree with, after watching a video of our own swing, it naturally convinces us the changes we need to change in our swing.

To get started on golf on the right foot and spend 1 year to build a beautiful simple swing, be sure to read alot about the golf swing before heading down to the range. Having the right golf thoughts while practicing will help you greatly!
