How To Swing A Golf Club For Maximum Effect

By: Dean Caporella

If you have been playing golf for some time and don't know how to swing a golf club yet then you've got to consider whether you're really serious about improving your game.

When we say how to swing a golf club we mean using the correct fundamentals. It's amazing how even the slightest tweak can make a noticeable difference to your game. In this article, we are not going to explain the entire procedure of swinging a club but will give you some tips on how you might improve both your golf swing and your game.

Improving Your Golf Game

All the techniques in the world will do you no good if you either:

- don't identify your swing problem areas and
- don't get the correct advice

Identifying your problem areas is a nightmare when trying to work things out on your own. One of the best ways to do this is to take a video of your golf swing. Ask a friend or someone you play with regularly to video you while you are teeing off or playing approach shots to the green.

This is a tactic more and more players are employing and one which can easily show you where you might be going wrong. If you are not experienced enough to pinpoint the problem areas then it's on to plan B.

Get Some Coaching

This is an area many will resist simply because of the cost factor. Again, how serious are you about shooting lower scores? A coach will quickly identify the areas of your swing which need attention.

Remember that video you took. Take it with you to your coaching lesson and look over it with your tutor. The attractive thing about coaching is it doesn't have to be a long term exercise unless you want it to be. The primary reason you're enlisting the services of a coach is to identify the area of your golf swing which is giving you problems. Once this has been done, it's then off to the practice fairways to work on it.

Your coach may pinpoint your deficiencies within the first few minutes eliminating the need for future sessions. There is no point in thinking coaching will cost you a fortune because it doesn't. For the sake of a few bucks, your game can improve to the next level within a short period of time.

Getting advice on how to swing a golf club shouldn't come from your playing partners particularly if they are at the same level as you. A qualified tutor is a much better proposition.
