Golf Swing Power Tips
What’s more motivational than watching a championship golf tournament like the U.S. Open to get your blood pumping and back on the golf course? Perfect swings, long drives and unbelievable putts will encourage any golfer off the couch and onto the links. Watching golfers like U.S. Open winner Webb Simpson’s long drive can be very educational if one is trying to improve their golf game.
Here are a few simple tips that can go a long way to help improve one’s golf swing and overall game.
1. Stretch! Flexibility in the hips and upper body is key to a powerful golf swing. Golfers need a fluid and mobile swing, and by stretching this is achievable.
2. Core Strength. Core strength goes hand-and-hand with tip #1. The spine is the framework for the upper body and the abdominal muscles are connected to this framework. The abdominal muscles provide flexibility and support for the back. Golfers with weak core strength more than likely will experience back pain. Stronger through the core means strong in the back, which will help golfers with rotation and mobility.
3. The backswing to downswing transition most be precise or as close as possible. Learn how to properly shift or pivot your weight during the swing and the follow through will come naturally.
