A good Golf swing needs a good approach and follow through. a good method to teach yourself this is to attach two torches to the shaft of the club one facing down, one up and swing normally but slow, watch where the light beams go.

When you bring the club back to start the swing, the up torch light should pass over the ball, when you swing the down light should pass over the ball and in the follow through the up light should again pass through the ball. This means your stroke is lined up well. Alternatively you could use laser pointers as these weigh less and will not add a lot of weight to the club during practice swings.

AnswerA good way to tell if you have a good swing is to video tape yourself. That way you can see for yourself after you have done a few shots and it is obvious to you what you did wrong and you can change it.

bend your knees with your feet together

Beginner Golfers usually makes 3 fundamental mistakes, namely; 1.Inconsistency, 2.Slice, 3.Distance*You need to learn a method to check that you grip the club in the same manner for every shot to promote consistency.*Learn how to align the club face so that you don't push the ball right.*The key is to limit the amount of horizontal and vertical body movement during the swing.

Developing the perfect golf swing takes a clear understanding of the mechanics of the swing, and then a clear understanding of how to learn those mechanics. The brain learns new movement patterns in a very specific way and if you don't know what this way is, you'll spend a lot of time wasting your effort. Dan Coyle wrote a great book called the Talent Code that will help you understand this process.

Well essentially there are 6 stages to the golf swing...however if you take away the se-up and finish then the core part of the whole shot/movement is the 4 step swing motion which is as follows...

1 - The take away - after you have completed the set-up (step 1 officially) then you are ready for the first movement which is where the arms move to your right as a single unit (if you are right handed) whilst keeping that triangle formation fully in tact whilst rotating 90 degrees anti-clockwise yet stopping when the left arm is horizontal across your chest. (your right else should be starting to bend at this point) Your hips should also start to begin their pivot at this stage

2 - Completing the Back-Swing - From step one it is a simple progression to use the momentum building up to keep moving the arms and shoulders so that the club becomes horizontal with your shoulders whilst now you left arm is still relatively straight (different with each person) The triangle from step 1 should also be pretty much still in tact at the top of your swing. At its peak you should try to feel as though both your hand which are gripped on the club are parallel with your shoulders, feet and also target. Also during this movement the hips should reach the end of their clockwise pivot with your left knee slightly bent and your right leg almost still straight and then be ready to begin that power transfer drive up through your legs to complete stages 3 and 4.

3 - Initiating the downswing - The first movement should be felt through your legs and hips as this is where the majority of your power comes from believe it or not, not your arms. Without the drive in your hips, momentum would be lost and your timing would be out therefore losing co-ordination and stopping you from being able to co-ordinate everything as your body and mind intends for it to be subconciously. So an anti clockwise rotation in the hips to start the movement, then with the arms you follow the same path down as you did up in step 2. You should try to feel your right elbow almost digging in to you side, although it wont, it is a good tip ive always found helpful to create more power and control.

4 - The strike - Although it is taught to be a mirror image of step 1, step 4 is not always that. It depends on the ability of the player and how they wish to play the individual shot that changed step 4 from being a mirror image of step 1. Everyone starts step one in the same way with an anti clockwise wrist movement, however those of a higher ability may move their wrists differently through step 4 depending on the shape shot they wish to play. (roll wrists more from right to left before/during impact for a draw, hold them off for a fade) However, what remains the same for everyone is that the triangle should still be in tact as best as possible, eyes still firmly on the ball (i always teach to count 2 seconds after the strike, then look up) and not allowing your back to arch or dip, trying to stand tall throughout the swing to maximize the amount of space to swing the golf club resulting in greater control and generally more consistant results.

Hope that helps, for any more help you can get in contact with me at joeash_@hotmail.com

The swing is about timing and tempo. As we each have our own inner clock, the swing speed will depend on the individual making it. It is important to maintain good balance when making the swing, as well as acceleration thru the ball. Your speed at contact should be somewhere between 75 and 85% at contact , leaving you 15 to 25% of acceleration after contact.
