Proper Golf Swing Basics for the New Golfer

Advice,Recreation & Leisure,Sports
When addressing proper golf swing basics for the new golfer, the thought is to keep things simple and never try to emulate Tiger Woods or any of the pros. Their golf swing basics are so far advanced to ours that it would only trigger additional frustration than this remarkable sport of golf already has. What I would like to suggest to the new golfer is to get very simple in their golf swing basics, and once that's set build from that basis.

1. Work relating to the short game first. I suppose since we start a hole from the tee, people learning the sport believe that is where their training should begin. I feel proper golf swing basics start with the chip shot, after that moving up, ending using the driver. The object of any swing is what occurs at ball contact, and the rest of the swing is only in support of ball contact. The nearer you get to the hole, the greater number of times you may employ a particular golf club. Then doesn't it stand to reason the more time you use a particular golf club throughout a round of golf, the longer you should put into working with it? It is natural for the new golfer to walk onto the driving range, pull out the driver, and hit half a bucket of golf balls with it. But how often do you hit a driver through a round of golf? Fourteen at most, and many of those swings with the driver another golf club would have been the better choice. Give the driver a rest.

2. Work on contact, not club velocity. Controlled contact will serve your game a lot better than working to generate club velocity for distance. This is why we begin with the chip around the green, as it has the shortest distance end to end in the swing, and therefore should be the best controlled of any club. When the new golfer practices this golf shot, he should here a crisp "click" to the ball at contact. Also, practice removing any sidespin that for the longer clubs will cause a slice or hook.

3. As you move up from the chip when developing proper golf swing basics, imagine "smooth and under control" instead of "rapid and aggressive". Swinging the club harder might send the golf ball further, however only if you strike it solidly. But even when you hit it solidly but impart significant amounts of sidespin, the golf ball is going to be in poorer location than if you knock it 50 or 100 yards less, but with more control.

4. It will be extremely difficult for the new golfer, or that matter any golfer, to keep proper golf swing basics without being in decent physical shape. Muscle groups used for a proper golf swing are not used on a regular basis, so they ought to be maintained with an off-course program.

This is merely a primer course in proper golf swing basics. The new golfer must always be patient in his progress and especially try to maintain a correct rhythm and tempo. But above all, have fun, and recognize that playing this game better is a journey, not a destination.

Check out our website for more information on golf. We talk about all aspects of the game, including tips on the golf swing. Jim O'Connell is a writer and avid golfer living in London.
