Tips to Perfect Your Golf Swing

Posted on September 10, 2019
Are you ready to hit that elusive hole-in-one? Do you find yourself dreaming of getting out on the golf course and enjoying a fabulous golf weekend getaway near Atlanta? Luckily for you, there’s some spectacular golf courses in Georgia – especially at Callaway Resort and Gardens-- and these are the perfect places to show off your swing skills. Golfing can be a challenging yet rewarding sport to master, and it’s so worthwhile to give it your all while you take in a lovely day on the green. If you’re ready to perfect your golf swing before your next weekend getaway at the course, read on! [IMAGE 1] Keep Your Hands Down Low Everyday spent golfing is an adventure, especially when you’re still learning and looking to improve. Whether you’re a golf novice or a passionate player who’s just ready to get back in the swing of things, the first thing to remember is to keep your hands low. This is one surefire way to productively keep the height of your shots under control. By putting your hands in the proper position, you will be able to limit the height of your follow-through and the flight of the ball. This ends up giving you more control and accuracy, which will in turn hopefully help you get a better score. While some people may suggest choosing a stronger club, swinging lightly or moving the ball back in comparison to your stance, these steps are more difficult than just keeping your hands low as you finish. Just following this tip will bring the trajectory of your shots into more successful territory. Think About Posture Experts at the best golf resorts for a memorable golf weekend getaway would recommend giving your spine the forearm. What does this mean? Basically, this tip is telling you to prioritize your posture, keeping your right forearm parallel to your spine and your left wrist flat. Your elbows and arms should form a triangle, which will confirm your shoulders are rotating properly for the backswing. Professional golfers are all about posture, and if you want to step up your game, then you should take a good, hard look at your current posture. This could be the key to success you’ve been searching for. [IMAGE 2] Find Power in Your Body Golfers of all levels need to understand some fundamentals of the game, including that power is generated from the body rather than the arms. For beginners, it can be hard to fight the urge to concentrate your power on your arms and hands, but it’s important to try and learn how to power with the club. One helpful practice involves placing the club behind the ball, with your body at a standstill. Try to drag the ball into the air without a single backswing. Players who rely on their hands to control the club may struggle to start, but as you continue this exercise, you’ll realize how easy you can get the ball in the air by using just your core body strength. Once you have this down, you’ll be amazed at how you can turn fully through the ball during the downswing. Understanding this core essential sets you up for success on the golf course and off it as well. Put these tips to good use by booking your next golf game at Callaway Resort & Gardens today, and consider joining us for the 17th Annual Ida Cason Callaway Foundation Golf Tournament.
