How to Achieve a Better Golf Swing

By: Donald Whitehead

In concept golf is a simple game where the object of the game is to hit a small ball into a small hole in as few strokes as possible. The main goal is however is to achieve a better golf swing which will help to improve your game by lowering your stroke score, (how many times it takes you to hit the ball before getting it into the hole).

Golf is a really popular game and though many people around the world enjoy the game it is still unclear as to it's actual inception date, or rather where it actually originated from. The most common belief is that it originated in Scotland around the mid 1400's and kept evolving thru the mid 1700's when the first known rules were put down in written form. By then Modern golfers were showing interest and playing the game. Though it may be argued, evidence showed that there were earlier, similar games that already exsisted, the scots still get the credit for the game as we know it today.

The development of one key element that will take you far is a better golf swing. Obviously you can control a lot of your game in your golf swing. One of the best ways to improve your full swing is to improve your short swing first and then gradually move on to a medium or mid swing then on to a full swing, taking note of balance and body positioning at all times.

Good tempo and balance! Two important keys to a consistent, powerful and smooth swing. Rushing your swing will throw you off balance and balance is very important when you make contact with the golf ball along with proper body positioning for optimum leverage which equals power. Some golfers have faster tempos (the rate of speed at which it takes to go through the full sequence of hitting the ball) than others and some have slower tempos. Rhythm is to be in sync with whatever your tempo happens to be.

Each Golfer have their own individual swing and and you should strive to find yours. Achieving a better golf swing should always be your primary goal. Once you find your swing you should be able to reproduce it consistently with very dramatic and powerful results each and every time....

The perfect swing should be effortless yet graceful and full of power. From the start of a full swing to the end of it your body should be in complete balance the entire time. To attain this The rotary action of the hips and torso, the vertical action of the arms, the hinging, and the cocking and uncocking of the wrists must all come into play at just the right moment. In order to achieve a better golf swing, you may need to make an adjustment to any one of the afore mentioned actions differently from how other players swing to to suite your body mechanics and tempo etc. to get the optimum result.

To learn and get to the point that you need to be to become efficient and effect a lot has to be done. Practice will get you there. The object! To achieve a better golf swing until it becomes a natural movement. Until you can perform it without thinking about how to do it. You step up you see the field, you become the field and you play the game of golf.
