The 3 Key Essentials Of The Golf Swing

By Darren

The 3 key essentials of the golf swing are:

1. Head still: One of the primary functions of the head is that it houses fundamentally important sensory systems responsible for maintaining balance and controlling movement.

2. Rhythm: Smooth, rhythmic golf swings are often likened to music. But great swings really are more like dancing, because they contain a pattern not only of sound but also of movement.

People who watched Hogan play said it was like watching a machine stamp out bottle caps, and that plain and steady rhythm gave it that look. Keep in mind; you can swing to a fast waltz or a slow waltz, a fast rock beat or a power ballad. Just make sure you stick with it all the way.

3. Balance: All great players have the ability to swing every club at a consistent tempo and with great balance. Rhythm and balance are linked.

The key to consistency is to maintain your balance and use a smooth rhythm.

If you rush your swing you will lose your balance and the end result is inconsistent contact and poor ball flight. Outstanding ball strikers are rarely off balance at impact and their rhythm is the "glue" that bonds their positions and movements. Often their swings seem effortless and they swing easy and hit hard. Great rhythm allows you to properly sequence your body motion and arrive at impact in a position of leverage and power.

Good Golfing
