Tricks and Exercises to Improve Your Golf Swing
Your swing is everything. All the anticipation, the prep, and the worry culminates into a single swing, every time. As much as golf is a mental game, the physical mechanics of your swing play a big part in how well you perform every round. Learning how to improve your golf swing will help to build your confidence, to trust your decision-making skills, and to ultimately improve all aspects of your game. So here are some tips and exercises to improve your golf swing and build up that confidence!
Slow down and take it easy
Ernie “The Big Easy” Els is a great example of someone who knows that you can still get distance on the ball with a smooth, steady swing. You don’t have to whack the ball; focus first on tempo and accuracy before you start experimenting with power.
Keep your head down
Lifting your head early can only lead to missed shots; either thinning it, pushing it, pulling it, or even duffing it. Keep your eye on the ball to maximize the chances that the ball meets your club’s sweet spot. Trust your swing; good things will happen if you do.
Isolate and rotate your core
Core exercises like planking help to improve nearly every aspect of your swing. Notably, these exercises make it easier for you to get great rotation, allowing you to connect with a bit of power and avoid overswinging.
Keep your head up
That is, keep your head up figuratively (we covered why you shouldn’t do that literally earlier). Golf is a challenging sport, one where it’s easy to let a missed shot snowball into a bad round. If you stay optimistic and focus on your present shot, rather than the whole round, you’ll enjoy the game more and recover faster.
