Swing Thoughts!

by Max on Thursday, April 15th, 2010

Okay, here’s some swing thoughts that helped me hit the ball really great yesterday even with a 5-month layoff:

  • Keep your grip super light.
  • Swing with your body as a whole, don’t overswing.
  • Smooth, fluid rhythm, keep everything moving, momentum works best when continuous.

I started hitting the ball really good after I realized that I was overswing.  I wasn’t over-swinging like John Daly or nothin’ like that but my backswing was long enough where I felt like my arms were coming off my body.  When you do that, it’s a lot harder to control your swing plus you will need perfect timing to hit the ball solid.

Instead, I shortened my swing a bit, feeling like my whole body (the hands, arms, and your torso) were moving “together”.   This kept my hands and arms in front of by body at all times (also result of shortening my swing), and I hit the ball super solid and straight.

Well, that’s all for today, try these swing thoughts!
