Introduction: The Perfect Golf Swing
The perfect golf swing has 8 very important steps that you will be learning about today.
A golf club.
Step 1: The Set Up
First and foremost you need to have a good set up for your swing. You need to have your feet shoulder width apart and the club a comfortable length away from your body. The club head should be on the ground behind the golf ball so you are ready to start your swing.
Step 2: The Takeaway
This is the first part of your swing. For the takeaway it sounds exactly how it is, you want to take away your arms and hands holding the club and the club head should come off of the ground shown in the picture. This part has a huge influence on the rest of the swing.
Step 3: The Second Part of Your Backswing
For this part you need to keep taking the club away while starting to bend your wrists to create lag for the ball to be hit correctly. The club should be close to your hips as you are turning your hips away from the target.
Step 4: The End of Your Back Swing
At this point of the swing your club should be parallel to the ground and the club head should be pointing at the ground. Your lead arm should be straight while your other arm should be bent. Your hips should be fully turned away from the target to get the most distance out of your swing. Your head should be still the whole time while keeping your eye on the ball.
Step 5: The Start of Your Down Swing
For the down swing it also sounds exactly how it is. You need to release your arms down towards the ball with your wrists still bending away from the target. The club should still be behind you before you hit the ball. You want your wrists bent because in order to hit a good golf shot you have to hit down on the golf ball which is called lag.
Step 6: The Contact With the Ball
This part is for when you are actually in contact with the golf ball. You want to the club head to be pointing down at the ball because you want to hit the ball first before the ground. After the ball is hit your club head should slap the ground and create a divot. If this is done correctly the golf ball should then fly up into the air. You never want to hit the ground before the ball because then it will not go as far, (this is called a chunk).
Step 7: Second to Last Part of Your Swing
This part is after you have made contact with the golf ball. Your body should have fully turned toward your target. You want your belly button to be pointing at the target. The club will be in front of you with the face of the club pointing to the sky. Your back foot should be pointing down at the ground while your front foot is still in the same position it has been in the whole swing. your back should be bent backwards in order to create the golf ball to be higher in the air. You should be watching the ball in the air so you do not lose it.
Step 8: Your Swing Is Now Finished
This is the final part of your perfect golf swing! At this point the club should be behind your head and your arms should both be bent while you are looking at your ball in the air. And remember you need to put all of this together and do it fast to get the best performance possible. The golf swing is very hard to master and it needs to be practiced over and over again to get the best results. You will not be able to do this overnight. Even the pros practice and learn new things about their swing every single day. I practice 5 days a week and i still have troubles in my swing. It is a very long process. Thank you for learning with me, have a good day!
