Golf Swing Trainer Guide
Find A Coach
The first thing you need to do is find someone who you are compatible with. Sharing personality traits, mutual goals, and a similar outlook to the game, are things that are a must for you and your coach. You should definitely do a lot of research of professionals in your area. perhaps head down to a local course and ask around. This isn’t something you can just open up the phone book and find. Another key is finding an instructor that not only has the experience, but also the education to get your game to the level you desire.
There are many out there who claim to be coaches and experts, but are merely people who have taken a two week course on how to teach. When looking for a coach, its important that you check with the PGA and LPGA to make sure they have accredited this individual. They can reveal to you how much experience they have in coaching, and also tell you of their philosophies and past experiences. Both things that are very nice to know before you hire someone. You can also ask for references from students that have used this coach. Most instructors, if not all, know use video swing analysis in order to help improve your swing. Its become so popular, that if you find a coach that doesn’t offer it, you might as well say thanks and walk away. if its used correctly, this technology becomes a third pair of eyes with the technological abilities that are similar to the use of MRI and X-ray. You know how important those things are.
On the other hand, you also don’t want an instructor that only uses video technology to help your game out. You want one that has a good balance of video and one on one experiences. Finally, a good instructor will be one that you can ask questions and get feedback from. They also will provide you with the ability to receive feedback, and also answer any questions you might have after your lesson is over. if you find that offers you their phone number or email add after hours, that’s a huge plus because it means that they are committed to improving your game on their own time. If you are able to find a combination of these things, you will surely be on your way to improving your game an becoming a better golfer. Take your time in conducting your search, and success will be unavoidable.
Get A Grip
If you want to improve you golf game, you need to get a grip. In this post on golf swing trainer, I want to give you a better idea on how to grip you golf clubs. How tight of a grip do you need to have? You don’t want to have a loose grip or even a firm grip, we want to have a tight grip.
I don’t mean that you should have the type of grip that your muscle in your arms and shoulders are tied up with tension, but we do want to have our hands tightly on the clubs. If you’re wondering about the wrist in regards that the swing would be stiff and wooden, don’t worry about the wrist.
I’ve rarely every seen anybody to stiff or too tight in swinging a golf clubs (except those “scared” beginners), but I’ve seen many if not thousands of loose ones. The whole tendency in pupils is to take too light a grip. The loose grip leads into faults opening the hands at the top, collapsing the left wrist, over swinging, and so on.
A tight grip, though it does feel awkward for a while, acts as a brace from these various faults and makes the entire swing action easier to perform correctly.
By a tight grip we also mean with practically all the fingers that are on the club. These would be the last three of the left hand and the first three of the right. Many players have a tendency to place the forefinger of the right hand, the one that hooks around the shaft just below the right thumb, very lightly on the club. Don’t do it, it will hook.
Place the finger around the shaft firmly, so that the tip of it makes a definite contact with the tip of your thumb. If you don’t, the club will be liable to drop, at the top of the swing, into the big V between the forefinger and thumb. This means a loss of control at the top, which must be regained as the club comes down.
Now, how do we stand up the ball? No great mystery is involved in this either, although certain points must be observed.
It’s important that we take a position that will enable us to swing the club freely and to bring it down to the ball on an inside-out arc easily. To do this, the weight should be divided equally between the feet and the knees must be slightly flexed (it’s better too much than too little).
You should be bent ever so slightl from the waist and the shoulders should be rounded or hunched over. The head should be down, but not too much. The right shoulder should be lower than the left because of the fact that the right hand is lower on the shaft than the left (if you’re a lefty, reverse it).
I hope this post helps to improve your swing. I know that it’s helped me in the past and it’s something that I always keep in mind when I play.
Select the Right Gear
No matter how much time and effort you put into practicing your moves to perfect your game, you still won’t achieve your goal if you have the wrong gear. Here are a few tips to consider when checking on the quality of your equipment.
If you are planning to buy used golf clubs, you need to scrutinize the gear before your purchase them. Three parts of the golf clubs are the club head, shaft as well as the grips. Each of them should pas inspection before adding them to your golf bag. You need to make sure that the set of clubs have a set consistency.
In regards to the grips, they are the only contact points one can access to affect the shot. It’s important to know the core grip of the club and your hands grip size. To determine your core size grip, measure the diameter of the butt of the shaft you’re going to re-grip. The shaft’s diameter should match the grip’s core diameter. In determining your hands grip, the available size grips are regular, mid-size, oversize and jumbo. Use only the best re-gripping materials that will provide optimum performance for your golf clubs.
The next thing to consider is the shaft of the clubs. There are different materials that are used to make the shaft. Steel and graphite made club shafts are the two that are available. Professional golfers prefer steel shafts while graphite are more popular with women. Steel shafts are less expensive then graphite shaft though.
The club heads are something that will also improve your game. The size, material and the condition of them is something to keep in mind.
You clubs are what can make you break you game, so it’s important to have the tool that fit your skill level. Select the ones that will work for you. Different skill levels require various golf clubs. Keep in mind that you are only allowed to bring fourteen golf clubs in your bags (no more, no less), so choose wisely. Your mastery of a certain golf club and your being comfortable with using it must also be put into consideration in deciding which golf club to hit.
A good combination of the right moves and good choice of equipment will better arm you to become the best golfer you could ever be.
