Proper Golf Swing

Perhaps there would be a man or woman who does not like sports. Their choice would be different. Some people love sports which give quick results like Football, Hockey, Badminton, and Tennis. While some love to play sports spreading over the whole day like cricket and Golf. International Cricket Council has also figured out the demand of people who want quick results by introducing T20 cricket matches which are grabbing each and every person’s interest. Golf is a rich man game that also comes under short and long term results. If it is a world cup, then players have to compete with each other by hitting the ball in holes and the player who puts the ball in holes with fever strokes declared the winner.

If you want to learn how to play golf, you need to understand some important things like a club, club head, and golf swing. The club is the stick you use to hit the ball and it has two parts, one is the head and the other is grip (upper part). The clubhead is the bottom part of your club which is used to hit the ball. Its shape may vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. Old style club has a blade-like a club head. Now the modern style club comes with the larger and rounded shapes club heads. The shape of the clubhead affects a number of things such as the moment of inertia and the center of gravity. These are the major two factors that have a huge effect on the flying of the ball after hitting the ball with the clubhead.
Golf Swing also plays a crucial role in the golf and it decides whether you are champion or not. If you are using it properly, there are strong chances that you will take superiority over other players. Golf Swing is based on an angular motion concept that has its origin from physics. When you hit the ball with your twisting swing club, you produce a torque on the ball and kinetic energy is transferred to the ball. As we know that the kinetic energy is proportional to the square of its velocity and the clubhead mass. It means that the quicker your clubhead goes to the end of your swing, the bigger the quantity of K.E (kinetic energy) that may be transferred from clubhead to the ball.

How to Perform the Proper Golf Swing

1. The best and tested way to perform the proper golf swing is as follows:
2. Look for a mark in a direct line between the flag and the ball.
3. Imagine a line between these two reference points.
4. Put the clubface square to the line.
5. Now stand parallel to this imaginary line.
6. Grip your left hand correctly.
7. Making sure your club is naturally on the ground behind the ball; place it in the left hand so that the shaft lies across the top of the forefinger. It should fit under the heel of the palm to make space for the stability of the club. Make sure that the little finger is around the grip to ensure that there is no room for the club to move. Make sure that the thumb is straight on top of the shaft with the natural grip. You should be able to see two or even three knuckles of your hand.
8. Grip your right hand correctly, with your right hand hanging naturally shake hands with the club and settle into the grip.
9. Fold your right hand over the left thumb. The thumb of the right-hand points to the right shoulder. Finally, let see those two hands grip together.
10. Grip the back of the club correctly. There are three ways for this. First is Warden or Overlapping grip is used mostly in golf. Second is an Interlocking grip. The third is a Baseball grip and best for people with very shorthands.
11. Adopt the correct stance. This allows perfect balance throughout the swing. To start feet should be apart at the same width as shoulders. The feet, knees and hips and shoulders should all be parallel to the imaginary line leading to the target.
12. The right foot should be placed straight forward from the body at a right angle to the line of flight so that when you swing the weight will come on the inside of the foot to be able to push away and do the follow-through.

If you follow the above guide, hopefully you will play shots beautifully and sensibly.
