How to Swing Your Golf Club
The golf swing is a complex motion. The motion of the golf swing can be described as rotational, linear, lateral and vertical. When we talk about the golf swing not only do we mean the clubhead path and face alignment but also the body rotation and movement in relation to the ball. To hit accurate shots you will need to have good balance throughout your golf swing, make sure that you have a steady head (This does not mean you should look down at the ball) and maintain your posture. There are many different techniques for improving your posture but I find that making sure you keep your back straight, knees slightly bent and head slightly up will help you to improve it.
To help me remember what I have just talked about I use the acronym BLKV. This stands for bend your knees, keep your back straight, continue to look up and make sure that your posture is correct throughout your golf swing.
There are two basic types of golf swings which are used by all golfers; full swing and short game. The full swing is when you are hitting a drive or long iron shot and in my opinion it is the most difficult one to master because we want to produce maximum clubhead speed while keeping our balance at the same
I have put together a golf swing tip video series to help you learn how to swing your golf club more consistently. The secret to consistent ball striking is a repeatable swing – one that can be easily duplicated when hitting shots on the course. The first step in the process is learning how to swing the golf club properly, so a good swing model is vital to your success.
I am going to share with you a great model that I use in my instruction, and I want you to try it out by using it as a guide when swinging your golf club. To do this, simply record yourself on video from down the line (facing the target) or from face-on (perpendicular to the target). Then compare your swing to this model, starting with the setup position.
Set Up Position: Make sure your posture is tall, with your shoulders fairly level and knees flexed. Your arms should hang comfortably at address and there should be about a 45-degree angle formed between your left arm (for right-handed golfers) and the shaft of the club. From there, it’s time to start moving!
Backswing: Start by shifting your body weight into your right side as you move your arms back away from the target. Be sure not
The golf swing is a complex motion, but it can be broken down into simple steps. These steps combine to form the perfect golf swing. Your goal is to move your body correctly so that the club can produce a consistent and effective golf swing.
The first and most important step in the golf swing is setting up correctly. The setup includes grip, posture, stance, aim and alignment. Having an incorrect setup will make it very difficult to swing efficiently.
The second step in the golf swing is to understand how your body moves during the backswing. After you have set up correctly, you need to move your body back in a controlled way so that you maximize power and distance.
The third step in the golf swing is moving from the top of the backswing into the downswing. This transition is important because it sets up everything for the rest of your swing. Hitting a bad shot usually means that something went wrong during this transition.
The fourth step in the swing is impact, where you hit the ball with your club face at maximum speed. If you are swinging properly, impact should look effortless because all of your energy has been transferred directly into the ball.
The last step in a good golf swing is follow through, where you complete your motion after
The golf swing is a complex and delightful movement that is fundamental for all golfers. The success of the golf swing depends on how well you can produce power.
Power comes from the hips. Many people don’t understand this. They believe that power comes from the arms, but this is wrong.
The correct way to generate power with your hips is to turn them toward the target as far as you can. Most beginners get this wrong because they don’t know how far they should turn. You should turn your hips as much as possible, but they should not rotate over themselves.
You must move properly through your swing. A common mistake is called “swaying.” Swaying means shifting your weight onto your front foot during the backswing and then shifting it back again during the downswing. This causes you to lose balance and makes it difficult to hit a good shot. Swaying is best avoided by rotating the hips correctly, which will keep you in balance throughout your swing.

Here is a video of me playing a round at the beautiful Chateau Whistler Golf Club, which I absolutely love playing. A big thank you to Fred Couples and his brother Tim for coming up to Whistler and playing in the “Tournament of Hearts” with me and my wife Lisa.
It was a very fun day! This is a great golf course and if you ever get the chance to play it, do it! It’s worth every penny. The views are spectacular and so is the design.
