In order to feel the rhythm of the swing, practice this exercise at the driving range. With your hands clasped behind your back, turn your body to the right and then the left. Now do this motion with your arms in front of you, clasping your hands and swinging the arms back and through until you get the rhythm. Now add the club and feel the simple swing motion. As you take the club back and through, swish the club brushing the grass at the starting point. When you get comfortable with this swinging motion, brushing the grass, tee up a ball about a half-inch off the ground and try hitting the ball.
Do not be disappointed if you do not hit the ball the first time. The golf swing takes practice. If you are a novice golfer, do not try hitting the ball on the ground. Practice first with a teed-up ball to get comfortable and confident with the golf swing.
