When I first started playing golf, I made some critical errors that cost me many hours of practice time. It was frustrating because I had such high hopes of improving my game. But after some research and a lot more hours of practicing, I finally realized what was wrong. I needed to improve my golf swing for women.
If you’re a woman, there are a few different things that can affect your golf swing. First, your height and body type affect the speed and force with which you swing the golf club. Women tend to have less “swing speed” than men, for reasons that scientists don’t yet understand. However, if you use a golf club in a way that works with your body, you should be able to increase the power that you generate in your swings. This is why the adjustment of the club head length is so important.
Women tend to have a tendency to hit the ball harder with their golf swings. It’s funny; I really didn’t think so at the time! When I began playing on a regular basis, I began to notice that my drives were getting especially hard- hitting as I became older.
Another thing that tends to affect a woman’s golf swing is her backswing. The backswing starts the movement from the front and is a big part of how the club connects with the ball. If a woman has a good backswing, she should be able to create a longer shaft, with more energy at impact. The best shaft length for a female golfer is about two inches longer than for a male golfer. To get a nice, long shaft, start your backswing with your arms straight, then release your wrists slowly, so that they naturally rotate, creating a nice rotation at the top of your swing. Don’t snap your wrists or turn your wrists too far to the left!
Also, if you see that your golf swing has a tendency to slice the ball a lot, or if you’re not getting a nice ball flight on your shots, then you may need to work on keeping your left knee slightly bent. Keep it slightly bent all throughout your golf swing. You should be rotating your hips and torso a lot, and the legs, knee, and hip joints will rotate more naturally, giving you a better golf swing.
Women with less upper body strength and higher handicap will benefit the most from using a golf club that has a larger head. The reason is that the larger the head on the golf club, the straighter it’s face will be. This will give you a better ball flight, with more distance, because you will be hitting the ball with more power.
