Golf Tips For Your Next Game

#1 Eliminate Early Extension

One of the most common issues for players is something called “early extension”. This happens when you don’t turn the hips around at the correct time on your swing.

If you have been playing golf for a while you might have heard about the early extension and the effect it can have on your game. It might be a little challenging to get rid of after a while without playing but you should try avoiding it nonetheless. Don’t worry if it happens to you, because this isn’t just an amateur problem -professionals go through the same problem all the time as well.

#2 Check Your Posture

As we said before, after some months without playing, one of the first things you might notice is a change in your posture. Which is why we recommend you practice arching your back like a feline before your first game to relax your shoulders and level your hips. If you follow this tip, your swing might improve on getting you some more yards.

#3 Decrease Your Spin Rate

Many golf players suffer from excessively high spin rates. There’s plenty of reasons this happens, but one of the most common is a downward strike of the ball that puts excess backspin on the shot. To help you decrease your spin rate try “hitting up” on the golf ball with a driver. It’s also helpful if you use a launcher monitor to test the spin rates to be more accurate.

#4 Check Your Balance

This is a simple but effective tip if you want to have the perfect swing: You must spread your weight evenly between your toes and heels.In essence, if you want to get more power for your shots, you should shift your balance slightly. Even with shorter irons or long clubs, the proper balance will help you improve the angle of your backswing. 

#5 Don't Forget To Keep A Stretching Routine

Many players tend to overlook the simple habit of stretching. Over time, your strength will decrease on its own, the best way to combat this loss of strength is to maintain a high level of flexibility. The key with stretching is to make it a part of your daily routine. This can be done every morning, and you’ll see the results when you’re on your game.
