Do you want to improve your swing? Do you want to hit the ball more consistently? Maybe you want to hit the ball further. Maybe you are just starting out and want a better understanding of golf swing basics.
Whatever the case, this blog is not only for the beginner but also for the experienced golfer looking to improve their skills.
Golf Swing Analysis: What’s Your Swing? The best way to improve your golf game is to know what kind of golfer you are and what your strengths and weaknesses are in your swing. Once you have this information, whether it be by personal observation or by getting a professional analysis of your swing, then you can begin to work on improving your weaknesses and enhancing your strengths.
Golf Swing Basics: Beginners! You have come to the right place! We have compiled many resources here for new golfers looking to learn about golf clubs, instruction from those with years of experience in the field, and various techniques that will help get you started off on the right foot.
So let’s get started!
In this article, I want to help new golfers understand what a swing analysis is and why it’s beneficial for them.
What is a Swing Analysis?
A swing analysis can be described as an individualized breakdown of the golf swing. This could involve the study of various aspects of your golf game such as your putting, driving, iron play etc. But for the purpose of this article, I will focus mainly on the full swing with a driver or iron.
Do you need one? Are they worth it?
Many beginners at golf wonder if they need a swing analysis and whether it’s worth having one. The answer to both questions is yes. A swing analysis can be invaluable to any golfer no matter what their ability level. It can help you understand and identify areas within your own game that need improvement or fixing. During my time as a beginner golfer, I had many lessons with my local pro but was never given much feedback on my own game. This made me feel as though I was in limbo because I didn’t know what to work on between each lesson and felt that I couldn’t improve without the guidance of my pro. As soon as I had my first swing analysis, however, everything changed for me
If you don’t know what you look like when you swing, then how do you know what to practice?
It is the rare golfer who can self-analyze his or her swing. I recently watched a friend hit balls for about an hour. He was hitting the ball well and I asked if he ever had his swing videoed. He said he did it at a golf show once. It was two years ago.
It’s no wonder he wasn’t making any progress in his game – how can you improve if you don’t know what to work on? And how do you know what to work on if you don’t watch yourself swing?
So, go get your swing videoed! Don’t worry about analysis though because unless you are a good golfer and know what you are looking for, it may be difficult to understand (that’s why PGA professionals attend classes to learn how to analyze swings).
But that doesn’t mean that the average golfer can’t use their video as a tool. Here are some simple tips that you can use when reviewing your own swing.
We’ll be using this blog to explore the golf swing and to learn about swing analysis. We’re hoping to jot down some observations regarding the golf swing, and then to use those observations in the future to understand how we could improve our skills on the course.
We’ll be taking a look at various aspects of the golf swing, from how we hold the club to how we address it, and everything in between. We’ll also be looking at some things that can help us improve our game. We’ll be posting some videos of our swings, and we hope you enjoy them.
We’ll start off by going over the basics of how to use a ball marker and what it means to keep your eye on the ball. The goal is not only to make it easier for you to play your game, but also to make your game more enjoyable.
We hope you enjoy reading this blog!
So, you’re into golf and you’re looking to improve. You bought some clubs, and joined a club, and you’ve been practicing your swing. But it doesn’t seem to be working. What are you doing wrong?
Well, maybe it’s your swing.
The most important aspect of the game of golf is your swing. So why not learn what makes a good swing and how to fix yours? After all, there are so many different kinds of golf swings out there. How do you know what works best for you?
If you’re just starting out with golf, then a good way to learn about the different types of swings is by looking at videos of professional players like Tiger Woods or Phil Mickelson. These guys have been swinging for years and they know what works for them.
But if you want something more specific, then try reading up on some books about the different types of swings that are out there today. There are hundreds of books on this subject, so if you’re really interested in learning how to develop your own swing then this is the place to start.
Like most golfers, I’m constantly trying to refine my swing. In my quest for the perfect swing, I’ve tried many different techniques and training aids over the years. Some have helped me, others haven’t. One thing that has helped me more than anything else is video analysis.
There are some great articles here on Golf Loopy that deal with how you can use video to analyse your golf swing (see links below), but one thing that I think is missing from these articles is a guide for beginners to the different ways you can capture and analyse your swing on video. This article aims to rectify this by providing a simple guide to the three main ways you can capture your swing on video – using a digital or video camera, using a smartphone or tablet, or using a launch monitor – and then analysing it using the tools available in our Video Swing Analysis System.
As you could see in the video, the club face is a bit open at impact. I think this is due to some problems with the transition from downswing to impact. The transition from backswing to downswing looks fast which is great but it looks like you’re trying to brake too much. This makes the club face rotate counter clockwise and make it open at impact.
The rotation of your body also looks like it stops too quickly. I dont know if this is because of some restrictions in your back or because of your shoulders just not turning that much, but this makes the swing plane really flat and can be the reason why you’re losing distance.
Your posture looks fine but the thing that bothers me a bit is that you’re straightening your right leg before impact. If you could keep it flexed until impact, you would probably get a better angle on the ball and better distance. When I hit my best drives, I keep my right leg flexed until after impact and then lift it up.
