Going on a
beachfront vacation with your family means enjoying gorgeous beaches, delicious seafood, and
relaxing activities, like turtle watching and golfing. If you plan on
golfing during your beachfront vacation, check out these tips on how to
improve your golf swing before you leave for your vacation rental.
Maintain Proper Grip on the Club
For the best golf swing, you should use a neutral hand position when you
hold your club, with your non-dominant hand on top, and your dominant
hand directly below. A proper grip increases the power of the club’s
impact on the ball. Take some time to experiment with the three basic
golf grips – vardon, interlocking, and ten-finger – to determine
which works best for you.
Adopt a Powerful Stance
Your stance is as important as your swing in
golfing. Your feet should be shoulder-width apart, and you should be resting on
the balls of your feet. Your knees should be slightly flexed, and when
you bend at the hips, your back should remain straight. Hold your club
securely, but try to remain loose and relaxed. The right grip and stance
can set you up for the perfect golf swing, as it helps you maintain your
balance and direct the ball where you want it.
Take a Solid Swing
When golfing, there are many different types of swings you can take depending
upon the location of the golf ball relative to the hole. In a basic golf
backswing, you shoulders should naturally pivot towards your spine, and
your weight should shift to your back foot. In your downswing, fluidly
move your arms toward the ball while smoothly shifting your weight to
your front foot.
