The power of your swing is an important part of playing a great game of golf. There are many ways to increase power and make the ball fly further. Using a few simple tips and tricks you can increase the power of your swing and get lower scores on the course consistently.
In order to maximize your scoring opportunities, take time to practice chipping and pitching around the green. Improvement in this important aspect of your short game can lead to shorter putts, and for some this can lead to a 10 stroke difference in your final score. Add chipping practice to your pre-round routine and watch your scores plummet.
It is important to be especially aware when you are golfing. There is a lot of activity happening on a golf course. Balls are flying through the air, golf carts are driving from here to there and clubs are swinging. It is important to be aware of your surroundings so that you do not get injured while golfing.
When you are below your ball as it is lying on a hill, the ball should be aligned closer to your back foot, this will help to prevent you from hitting the slope before you hit the ball, it will also help you to hit the ball over the slope.
Fix your backswing. As you pull the club back, turn your left shoulder away from the target. In order to make a full-shoulder turn, slide your left knee back to the center of your stance and bring your left heel off the ground. The majority of weight should now be on your back foot, and your head should be over the ball. This position will enable you to hit the ball as powerfully as possible.
Keep your chin up if you tend to under-cut your golf ball. The posture you adopt for your swing has a lot of ramifications. Chief among these is the interface you achieve between club and ball. If you are leaning into your ball too far, your club will tend to under-cut the ball. Remembering to lift your chin will encourage you to lean back and get a better posture.
If you play in sunny weather, take the time to practice full swings and putts with your sunglasses on. Wearing non-prescription sunglasses can cause just enough of a perception shift when lining up a put or taking a full swing to cause a shot to go astray. Practice with your shades on to make sure your score doesn’t suffer from your need to protect your eyes.
If you are trying to get more distance out of your shot you should point your toes out and widen your stance. Complete the back swing to put your club in the right position. Practicing these techniques will ensure that you will get more distance out of your golf shot.
As noted above, there are many different ways that making some adjustments can lead to a more powerful game. When used and practiced in a consistent manner, you can get the ball to not only fly off the tee further, but from the fairways, bunkers, and rough in a consistent manner.
