A Golf Swing Tip For the Lead Hand

The golf swing, the most basic move in the game of golf, is the act by which players continuously hit the ball throughout the game. The basic golf swing motion is a complicated movement between the upper and lower body; the nuances of the swing are called golf swing mechanics. Many players have attempted to simplify the golf swing, but the only way to truly master the golf swing technique is to spend many hours practicing. In this article I will examine some simple tips that can help improve the golf swing mechanics.

The first thing to examine is your posture while swinging. Professional golfers not only have perfect mechanics, they also have perfected their stance so that it gives them the maximum amount of leverage while making the golf ball go where they want it to go. The hips are in a slightly forward position so that the weight is shifted to the balls shoulders. The feet are in a slightly forward position to allow the golfer to shift the weight from their arms to the hands and down into the ball.

To make the most of the leverage gained from the shifting of weight from one side to the other while swinging, it is important to create a correct balance between the rotation of the upper body and the lower body. This balancing act is achieved through the rotation of the shoulders and the turning of the entire upper torso. Many golfers do not realize the importance of proper body movement during the swing, this imbalance results in the loss of mobility in the joints and the whole body.

The turning of the upper torso should be done slowly and deliberately so that you keep the wrists in a natural position at all times during the swing. Most professional golf swings are assisted by a natural movement of the upper arm. To make this movement easier, begin by keeping both arms straight without moving them in any direction. Move the arms back toward the body so that you are starting from a balanced position with the shoulders width apart and the clubhead pointing toward the ground.

The next step is to rotate the hips slightly so that the torso rotates in a natural fashion. This rotational motion should be done carefully and deliberately so that the golfer does not use too much strength or energy into the swing. The hips should also rotate freely with the knees slightly bent so that the golfer is not overstretching their muscles or tendons. Maintain your upper body as straight as possible while your hips stay in the same position. This is the basic starting position for the golf swing.

The final part of the backswing is the downswing where the golfer turns his torso and then turns his right knee outwards. The arms now go down by turning to the right side and the hands now come up over the top of the club at about waist level. It is important to have your hands set in a neutral position between your right thumb and index finger. It is the hand placement that will determine how much power you generate on your swing. This part of the backswing drill should last about two seconds.

Once the wrists have stopped turning and the body has stopped turning, the clubhead should be brought down through the ball. From here the swing tips will vary depending on the shot. The more technical swing tips concentrate on keeping the clubhead square at impact so that it can fly straight and low. However, more common swing tips tell you to have your left arm hanging down so that it can cock the clubhead after impact. For the best backswing and downswing tips it is important to rotate the hips and keep the shoulders in the same position so that you can keep the clubhead square at impact.

The final part of the backswing is the follow-through. This is where the follow-through begins. It starts by turning the body so that the shoulders turn back in and the lead-hand thumb and little finger extend into the distance between the ball and the front foot. Your hands should finish being in the same position on the backswing as they were at the top of the backswing.
