How to Create a Consistent Golf Swing

Fix Your Golf Swing Problems

Here is a tip on a great way to build a golf swing or actually to fix swing problems for that matter.

I get a lot of my students and what I will do is put the ball on a tee and I will have them take the golf club and choke down on it, put the club down behind the ball, heel, toe and sole, feet together, spread the feet out, and all I will have them do is putt the ball off the tee. Now that was a pretty solid golf shot but the whole point that we are doing here is that they want to hit solid and straight golf shots no matter what shot they are hitting here.

Work on Hitting Solid and Straight Golf Shots

The way I ask them to do that is to play a little game with yourself. If you hit three balls straight and solid with a swing that just goes like this, nice and short, you are giving yourself permission to go back and little further and through a little further. So they do the same thing. After they have hit their three balls they put the ball back on the tee, same set up, go back a little further and through a little further. You can hear how solid that contact was because you can hear the click and that ball went perfectly straight. If I do that and continue on with my golf swing, go back just a little further and through a little further, I am building a great golf swing and I am building it from the ground up.

So for those people who are having trouble with their golf swings this is a great way of building a golf swing and it is also a great way of fixing swing problems you may already have. Try that, you will like it.
