All new hints for golf players: swing sequence

Understanding swing sequence in golf is highly important for a number of reasons. This is basically a review of how your body sets itself up to strike the ball. Elements such as driving accuracy and driving distance are crucial. You can review swing sequence of professional golfers to get an idea of how many yards they hit on average. For some they have some pretty impressive numbers, but this doesn't mean the average player can't shoot for the same results. It is all about picking up more yards when you swing and there are several easy tips to help you accomplish this feat.

  • Widen your stance to help achieve good balance. Your shoulders should be inside your feet. Your leading foot should be behind the target to help you close your stance just a bit (roughly six inches behind). This helps your backswing be stronger. Your stance may also help control weight and movement throughout the swing for accuracy.
  • Don't be in a rush to hit the ball. You end up wasting energy instead of letting it build up when you take your shot. Go hard at the ball when you swing down prior to making contact. Some golfers hit the ball too quickly simply do to anxiety or not realizing how they approach the ball. If you use too much energy before you hit the ball it may go in a direction not intended.
  • Make sure your body is balanced and in a good posture before you swing. This makes a difference in achieving smooth rotation as you move to swing the ball. Smooth rotation is essential for balance control and consistency in making good contact with the ball.
  • When you swing your body should make a good coil position. This creates a nice takeaway motion effect when your hips are in the right positon. Certain parts of your body may actually be at an angle to help you achieve good swing motion as your body coils.
  • Know the difference between a shoulder and hip turn. Flexibility and motion range is important. Your hips and shoulders may actually move simultaneously as you make your shot.
  • Pay attention to the position of your hips and chest when you make contact. Most of your weight is on your lead leg with your other leg slightly pivoted off the ground.
