Learning How To Play Golf

Learning How To Play Golf, Most golfers spend countless hours trying to reproduce a highly technical swing that only a handful of professionals can replicate on a consistent basis. So it’s no wonder that the United States Golf Association recently reported that only 10% of all golfers break 100 on a consistent basis.

Many golfers learning to play golf shift their weight back on the backswing because this is what they see countless pros do on TV over and over again. What they don’t realize is that you don’t need to swing like a pro to lower your golf handicap. In fact, simplifying your swing will dramatically improve your golf swing increasing consistency and distance.

How to minimize weight shift back and away from the target

Start by taking the club back and up to parallel making sure that your weight hasn’t shifted. Once you are able do this move consistently, make a ¾ swing. Continue until you are making a full swing without moving your weight backwards.

Develop increased consistency and distance in your golf swing
