No matter how much experience you have on the course, there is always room for improvement. If you are still looking for a New Year’s resolution this year, why not work on improving your golf swing? There are several different tips that can help you to gain more distance on your swing, and this is the perfect time of year to start practicing in prep for the upcoming season. Check them out here:
- Know your fundamentals. Take a moment to go over all the basic golf fundamentals and see where you stand with them. Check on your overall set up – how is your stance? Is your grip strong enough, or is it too strong? Are you over-turning your hips during your swing? How is your posture? These are all great questions to ask yourself, as all of these will have a direct effect on the success of your swing.
- Stay relaxed. First and foremost, stay relaxed before you swing. If your mind is elsewhere, you will not be focused, and your swing will ultimately not have as much distance and speed as you would like for it to. Take a deep breath and swing confidently!
- Try a wider stance. To increase your speed and distance, you need stability. Try taking a wider stance before you swing, which will also help to add some resistance in your hips and legs. A wider stance will also help with a proper shoulder rotation, as well!
- Increase your strength and flexibility. For your overall game, not just your golf swing, you
should work to increase your strength and flexibility. Go to the gym a few times a week and
attend some yoga classes! This will ultimately help you to gain better distance and speed and keep you in good health along the way!
