You must have a solid and accurate grip on your golf club in order to swing it properly. By having a solid grip, you put yourself in the best position to work the club in order to strike a wide variety of shots. Your accuracy will increase if you can properly place your glove-hand on the club. While playing golf and in the correct position to swing, make sure to shift your hips with a rapid motion so your weight moves to the forward foot from the back one. This should significantly increase the power behind your swing and subsequently the distance the golf ball travels. It’s always a good idea to take a few practice drives on the range before starting your game – even if you are in a rush to start. The practice shots you take at the range will help you get warmed up for starting your round. Inspect the head of any golf club you intend to buy. Shiny spots tend to mean the club is overused and worn. This is undesirable since the club will not be able to cradle the ball as effectively.
Don’t bring your club back so far; it will help give your swing more power. Although pulling back the club will increase the power of your swing, when you swing back too far, you lose your correct posture and this can result in your missing the ball entirely or even cause an injury.
