Professional Golf Tips 101

By Melissa Williams, Tara Golf & Country Club

Golf is a game of balance and without it your swing will not be repeatable.  This is a must in anyone’s golf swing and without being able to repeat a good swing over and over again, the golf game you are striving for, will be very hard to achieve.

When you are setting up to the ball the number one problem people have is not paying any attention to the balance.  As soon as you start the backswing, do you ever feel off balance? Probably more often than we want to admit, but with this simple thought process, you will be better balanced and have more ability to start lowering your handicap.

*During the set up process make sure your feet are shoulder width apart and square to one another.

*Once you have squared the feet up, bounce up and down on your knees to get in an athletic position.

*Before you start the backswing, check to see if your weight is distributed properly before making a move away from the ball.

With these simple thoughts before your golf swing starts you will find that repeating your swing is a lot easier than it used to be.
