Advanced Swing Thoughts!

Do you know one secret that helps you become better at golf?

It’s definitely not hitting a ton of golf balls at the range although it does help if you do practice.

The key is to really become better at golf everyday, perhaps you are hitting some chip shots at the practice green or working on short 50-yard pitch shots all day long at the range.

Anyways, I hope you all are trying to get better at golf, as I have been. It’s about beating your own self, your own skills on a daily basis.

Here’s some advanced swing thoughts that help me hit the ball like really good today and last whole week.

First, practice a lot of 50-80 yard pitch shots and challenge yourself if you can hit these short pitch shots perfect. I practice these most often as they serve as core fundamentals for your golf shots, swing, and more.

If you can find a good swing that can hit good pitch shots, you will inevitably end up hitting great full shots and great drives.

And here’s the real secret sauce that I’ve been using:

The backswing is composed of your whole body working together.

Your downswing on longer shots should be more or less “effortless” or automatic if you will. The full swing on a driver is so big that you shouldn’t have to think. I like to think of my lower body’s transition and turning through on the longer shots, that’s about it. There’s no way you can manipulate the longer shots with your hand.

On the other hand, shorts iron shots and pitch shots require some finesse with your hands and arms, you will have to learn to hit various different shots on the short ones especially.

That’s about it but this could help you if you are trying to get better.

    Thank you. l like your tips. l do practice a lot on short chips and pitch shots but maybe l should practice them on a daily basis if l could. l hardly practice my drive because l just couldn’t increase my drive over l50-l60 yards,so what l am doing is to improve my short game. lf l could improve my woods and short game may be l could beat my buddies instead of me paying all the the time. l am trying hard to break 90. l am always around 92-96. Of course, l understand l am a super senior,but maybe before l quit golf l could break 90.l am doing all l can to increase my flexibility and strenth. Thank you for listening to this frustrated golfer.

    that is good keep doing that u will break 80 in no time, u build your basics on short shots and carry them over to ur longer ones, never the other way around. Hit that 59 yard pitch shot perfect, a 359 yard drive becomes a piece of cake!
