Golf: Swing Instead Of Hit
VideoJug golf expert Rickard Strongert explains one of the most common mistakes among golf players, and how to improve your game by developing a smooth, flowing swing. So learn how to swing instead of hit the VideoJug way.
Step 1: Keep constant grip pressure
Concentrate on maintaining the same grip pressure throughout your backswing, downswing and follow through.
To reproduce the smooth feeling and action of your practise swing.
Step 2: Breathe out as you swing
Set up, then take a deep breath and start blowing out air slowly through your mouth.
Listen to your breath, and continue exhaling at the same rate throughout your swing.
If you hit at the ball, you will interrupt your breath, as it is impossible to breathe at a constant rate if your muscles get tense.
Begin practicing with a pitch shot and then try a full swing.
Step 3: Keep your mouth open
After you set up, open your mouth slightly, and keep it open throughout the swing.
If you hit at the ball, your facial muscles get tense and you will bite your teeth together.
Practice these tips and you will soon be swinging through for longer shots.
