A Winning Golf Swing Tip For Players Who Have Little Practice

As a golfer, you would love to be out on the course every weekend. Actually, you wouldn’t mind a round during the week as well, I’m sure. Unfortunately, in the mad rush of the modern world, that dream of a round of golf every weekend just goes out of the door. In fact, it often turns into a golf round every month if you are lucky.

And don’t talk about practice. If there is little time for a round of golf, what time is there for any form of practice? Even as a golf veteran, this can really impact on your game. So when you do get to play, it is essential that you quickly get your swing into gear, otherwise, the chances of enjoying your round are negligible.

So what can you do to ensure that your swing remains in the groove, even with little practice? Well, start with the fundamentals.

Warm up

Without a proper warm up, chances are that you are just going to injure yourself out on the course, especially if you have not swung a club in anger for a while. Start with a stretching routine to loosen all those important muscles in your back as well as right through your body. Once you are warm enough, it’s time to hit a few balls before your round, while focusing on a few important things.


Without the proper grip, your swing is useless no matter how perfect. So start with getting your grip properly set. This should not be too difficult as even as a beginner, you should have a grip nailed down pretty well at this point, even if you play rarely.


Once your grip is sorted, it’s time to move onto your posture and addressing the ball. Remember, balance is key here. Without excellent balance, your swing is never going to be perfect. Remember to balance your weight equally. Also, hang your arms as naturally as possible. This helps to provide enough room for your shoulders during your swing.


Finally, the crucial moment. No doubt if you haven’t played in a while, your swing is going to be fairly rusty. That’s why it is not only essential to get the aforementioned points right but to practice a fair amount of swings before starting your round. As for your swing itself, remember a slow back swing, a pause at the top and a smooth transition into your downswing, uncocking your wrists to ensure the clubface strikes the ball properly are all essential.

With a good enough warm up and some time on the practice range, there is no reason why you cannot shoot a good score, even after a lengthy layoff.

Practice while you are on holiday

See if you can stay close to a driving range while on holiday. Your golf trip is going to be a lot more fun if you are on top of your golf game. The best way to do this is to practice while you are on your golf trip. Why interrupt your practicing regiment simply because you’re playing more? Your games will highlight your shortcomings. Tend to them immediately and test your new skills while you still have the time and luxury to do so.
