Online Golf Lessons – A Fast Looking Golf Swing Can Wreck
Article by Bear Lucy
Do you have a fast looking swing or a slow golfing swing? Many weekend golfers believe a fast swing will hit a ball a longer distance. The swing perhaps is fast, yet the ball doesn’t go as far as a pro’s slow looking swing.
Why? In this online golf lesson, I’ll explain what happens during a fast looking golf swing and why you need to slow down your swing.
If you think about your body for a while, you know that it moves a lot slower than your arms in the real world. So if your body can’t turn so fast, how do you get a fast looking golfing swing? You get a fast looking golfing swing when you trying to hit the ball as hard as you can with just your arms. This indicates that your arms are moving independently from your body.
What Happens to Your Shots When Your Arms Beat Your Body?
1st, you will not make perfect contact with the club’s sweet spot because swinging with your arms alone will lead you to manipulate the clubface as it swings through impact.
second, the harder you swing, the tighter your arms and wrists will be through impact. Tighter wrists release slower than looser wrists and looser arms extend more than tighter arms ( which amplify the width of your swing arc ).
To decelerate a fast looking golf swing, we first have to think rationally about it. Pros have a slow looking swing and they drive the ball a long way and you have a fast swing that hits the ball less distance.
Why do you Insist on Hitting the Ball Harder Than the Professionals do?
Unfortunately, human instinct typically gets control of us when we are going to hit a golf ball. It says the harder you swing the further the ball will go. This doesn’t let us recognize the reasoning behind swinging slower. Swinging slower makes you feel like you have less power so you cannot see how it is possible for you to fundamentally hit the ball well and further by not using your arms.
You need to convince yourself that you can swing slower to hit the ball well. After you slow down, you will make better contact in the sweet spot of the clubface, widen your arc and release the club quicker. All these things add up to more distance with less effort.
Take This Online Golf Lesson to Take the Arms Out of the Swing
All you’ve got to do is hold the club waist height and feel your body swing the club-head. As you swing, hear the swishing sound the club-head is making as it swings through impact. Now, try and make the club swing quicker by shifting your body weight from the right leg to the left leg permitting your body to turn at the same time. If you let your arms swing overtly you may hear the club swish faster as you increase the velocity of your body.
As you go to hit the ball, you have to relate the same new feeling of using your body to hit the shot. This means that you can not think about hitting the ball. If you consider the moment of hitting the ball, it will speed up your arms again. You need to now think about turning and shifting your body weight.
This will turn your body and permit your arms to swing down because they’re connected to each other. If you are feeling your swing getting fast again just stop, hold the club off the ground and do more practice swings feeling your body making the club swing. It takes some practice and concentration but when you slow your swing down you will not only gain a sense of easy power but you may begin to seem like an expert when you swing the club.
