2 Easy and Quick Ways to Correcting Golf Swing

By: Staffan Moritz

Most golfers have problems with either their hooks, slices, or shots that fly too high or too low. These are most likely caused by an incorrect golf swing. A correcting golf swing may be easier to achieve than you think. Hooks, slices, and other problem shots will be a thing of the past once you learn the correcting golf swing tips in this article.

If you are hitting hooks and have problems hitting the ball straight, follow these correcting golf swing suggestions:

Is your grip turned too far to the right? You want your hands to make a v-shape that is pointing directly up. Pay attention to your ball position and make sure it is not too far back in your stance. Before hitting your driver, set up with the golf ball near your left foot if you are a right-handed player. Check to see where you are aiming. With hooks, players are often aligning their body and shoulders too far to the right. Avoid taking the club back too close to the inside during your back swing. For a straight shot, you want to be sure to take the golf club straight back and straight through with the downswing so your club face meets the golf ball squarely.

If you have problems with slices off the tee box, then these quick tips might help:

Are you hands on your grip turned too far to the left? Your hands should be forming a v-shape with your grip that is pointing up towards you. Make sure your body is aligned with the desired target line. Are you setting up too far to the left? When you are slicing you shots, your ball position may be too far forward. Try moving the ball position back in your stance. Your wedges and short irons should be played in the middle of your stance. Also. make sure you aren't taking the club out too far away from your body in the back swing. Keep an even swing plane and take the ball directly back in a straight line from your set up position.
