Golf Swing Path-The Critical Role That Golf Swing Path Plays in Your Golf Game

The path of your golf swing is a critical factor in the quality of your ball striking in your golf game.

For example, if your golf wing path is from out to in you will slice or pull the ball. Sounds familiar?

If you are in the small percentage of golfers with an in to out path then you will hit a draw. . or a push/block.

Clearly it is essential that you swing the club on the correct path to execute the golf shots that you desire.

Golf swing path is essentially the path that your club travels on in the golf swing. This path can be one of 3 types.

3 Golf Swing Paths

1. Online: An online path means that the arc that your club describes in the course of the swing travels from square at address and remains square through the backswing and throughswing.

If you look down from above the path that your clubhead travels on will be a circular motion starting from the ball target line, travelling inside in the backswing and travelling back on the arc it started on when travelling through impact.

This swing path requires no manipulation of the club either in the backswing or throughswing and leads to a very efficient swing.

2. Out to in path: This path will lead to a slice and the club travels outside the ball target line in the backswing and approaches the ball from outside the line to inside the line in the throughswing.

3. In to out: This swing path approaches the ball too much from inside the ball target line and travels outside it in the throughswing. This path can be very useful and will produce draws, but these draws can turn into hooks if it is overdone.

The ideal swing path is square at address, curves inwards in the backswing and approaches the ball on a square online path through impact. This swing is efficient, requires no manipulation and will lead to your most efficient swinging of the golf club. It will allow you give the ball a good meaty strike rather than the cutting across action that you will suffer from is you swing from out to in.
