GOLF SWING INSTRUCTIONS: LEARN HOW TO HIT EACH CLUB TO FIVE DIFFERENT YARDAGES

Some of the best golf swing instructions you may ever receive is to learn how to swing each club in your set at five different levels.

The reason why this may be some of the best golf swing instructions you will ever receive is that if you are able to swing each club in your set at five different levels you should be able to hit each club to five different yardages.

As you will recognize, this is a wonderful golf method.

You first should learn how to execute a wrist swing. This should be used for minimum yardages for each club in your set.

A wrist swing consists of merely turning the wrists and, in turn, the clubface slightly away and then, back to the ball,   without any body rotation.

For instance, a lob wedge “wrist swing” should fly the ball for only a minimum of distance.

The second level for each club is a one-quarter golf swing.

One of the best ways to judge a one-quarter golf swing is to observe the point your left elbow covers (bisects) your ball during your backswing from your line of vision.

Once your left elbow covers your ball during your golf swing, you should stop your backswing at such point and then begin your downswing.

A one-quarter swing is more of an arm swing than a body swing.

The third level of golf swing you should learn with each club in your set, especially with more lofted clubs, is the one-half golf swing.

The best way to judge a one-half golf swing is to observe the point the end of your left short-sleeved shirt covers your ball, from your line of vision, during your backswing.

You should stop your backswing at this point and begin your downswing.

The one-half golf swing entails some body rotation but is more of an arm swing.

The three-quarter swing is the next level of the five possible golf swing sequences with each club in your set.

The best way to judge a three-quarter swing is to stop your golf swing at the point your left shoulder barely touches your chin.

At this point, you should begin your downswing.

The three-quarter swing consists of much more body rotation. As a result, it will produce very good yardage relative to each club in your set.

The last level of swing is a full golf swing.

It requires you to swing your club to the point your left shoulder firmly touches your chin or, if supple enough, until your left shoulder turns under your chin, while maintaining balance.

It consists of mostly body rotation in comparison to an arm swing which, in turn, should produce the maximum of yardage for each respective club in your set.

Irrespective of which level of swing is executed, you should keep your left heel firmly planted during your swing to prevent sway.

If you learn how to hit each club in your set at these five different swing levels, you should agree that the information above may be some of the best golf swing instructions you will ever receive.
