Improving their golf swing is something that many golfers focus on. The key is patience and commitment while ensuring your mind is set on making the necessary changes. Here are some essential starting points to improve your golf swing.

1. Your Grip and Your Left Hand

A firm and well-managed grip are what drives the power of your swing. Too often, the wrong grip or even a slippery one will affect your shot. Therefore, you should correct your grip first. You may also consider having your clubs regripped to ensure they are not slipping as you make contact.

The grip is a determining factor in which direction the ball goes. There are many suggestions about the best approach, but you need to find what feels comfortable and works for you. 

2. Refine Your Golf Stance

For those who are right-handed, your left hand should control the club face and the ball’s direction to guide your grip and swing. You may point the club face just to the left of the target or consider creating a draw by aiming to the right of the target. If you are left-handed, your right hand should control the club face.

Consistent misses can be due to a poor setup. A balanced stance can help to eliminate poor hits by allowing your body to rotate freely, improving and maintaining balance throughout the swing.

Set up with a straight back and slightly bent knees. The ball should be positioned in the middle of the club face. Maintain your balance throughout your swing by utilizing your whole body. Aim to catch the ball in the middle of the club face and follow the swing through by twisting. Work on this at the practice range, and you will soon see improvements.

3. Become a Master of Your Swing

Focus on what works for you. While you may receive a lot of advice, stay with what seems to be working. For example, if you are still slicing, focus on what is causing it, and make the necessary adjustments. It can be helpful to have a friend video your swing so you can watch and see what went wrong.

4. Remember: Impact is What Counts

No matter what you do prior, the club’s impact on the ball is most important. It is affected by how centered you strike the ball, club face angle at impact, swing path, angle of attack, and club head velocity. 

Remember that a poor shot can be caused by not hitting the center of the club face or an incorrect hitting angle. 

5. Consider Counting

Most beginners tend to approach their shots too quickly. Instead, consider counting while you swing. You can consider counting 1 when you start your swing, two at the top of the backswing, three at impact, and 4 when you reach the finish with your follow-through. 

Counting can produce a degree of pace or rhythm that you can rely on in the future. A consistent pace helps to maintain posture while helping you focus.

6. Always Have a Target

Beginners often put more focus on the swing and less on the target. In the end, it is the target that counts.

Always look for a target to shoot toward, even if it is just a direction. Aim for a particular tree or another distant item far beyond your reachable distance if you are hitting from a practice tee. If you are shooting toward a green, pick a spot in the middle to practice your form.
