The Keys To An Easy Drive
The higher the handicap of a golf player is, the more pivotal a tee ball gets. Driving the golf ball into trees, bunkers, rough, water, and other hazards are the reasons why a high-handicapper rack up the strokes.
As a golfer becomes more proficient, he develops necessary skills to deal with trouble hit pitches and shots from the sand and rough, which puts less pressure on striking fairways. It is almost as though a good golfer expected to miss every now and then and felt confident in understanding that he has the techniques to recover from an error drive. Unfortunately, high-handicappers do not have that opportunity.
Tidy Up The Grip
How you place your hands on a handle will dictate whether you are going to make a consistent swing. First, grip more in your fingers with the handle, and make sure to form a V shape between your index and thumb finger, which is aiming at the right shoulder. This ensures a proper hand position at impact. Also, it regulates how far your hands will roll, turn, and release through address. Lastly, it will keep you from collapsing the wrists and under-rotating or over-rotating the handle.
Set Up Right
As skiing, golf usually requires a player to make some moves that might seem counterintuitive on the surface. For example, when you are skiing and need to slow down, you actually lean downhill. And in golf, when you need to avoid striking a golf ball to the right, what you should do is to set it up to the right. Many professional golf players have applied a minimally closed position as it practically helps eliminate an outside-in swing and improve a constant right-to-left spin on every shot. In general, when amateur golfers find it difficult with slicing, they often aim intuitively more to the left, which would enhance the cutting across movement. Try playing with a minimally closed position, with the golf ball placed opposite the left armpit at impact. This will lead to a complete turn through the golf ball from the inside out and also result in a draw spin or hook.
Turn On Your Power
Most golf players who have the dread outside-in swing path and steep swing have a tendency to take back their golf club too fast on a backswing. Therefore, they often find themselves attempting to take the club without turning their body. When that happens, a lot of bad things also occur. One way to avoid this problem is to start the backswing in a smooth and slow movement. Practice the backswing as slowly as possible while still being able to strike the golf ball. When you are slowly turning back, you will find yourself having the bigger muscles involved. Keep in mind that the quickest part of a swing is direct after contact. Therefore, you will build more power if taking a slower and longer backswing.
Every swing in golf, no matter how bad or good, culminates at an impact. Many factors come into a good driving, including the correct club speed, swing path, and swing angle. Among these important variables of an impact is the face angle of your club head.
It is simple to get this knowledge. An open clubface generally produces a clockwise sidespin that sends your golf ball to the right, while a closed clubface generates an opposite spin to your left. It is important to understand it is still possible to make a sidespin on the golf ball with a square clubface through impact.
To illustrate this, imagine a minimally inside-out swing with a greatly square clubface through address. As the golf club is moving from a minimally inside-out path, the golf ball is going to have a minimal right-to-left sidespin that looks like a slight draw to your left in the air. And that is a perfect swing path. It has been proven that a draw flies farther and rolls longer than slices and fades. In addition, because you swing with a rotary movement at an angle, it is really challenging to repeat a swing that travels directly forward and back through the golf ball every time. It is much simpler to repeat an inside-out swing path. And that is the reason why it is the ideal swing path for a lot of golf players.
