You’re probably into golfing now and wanted to improve your game; that’s why you’ve come to this blog. Well as a retired golfer, I have a few swinging tricks and fundamentals up my sleeve that I wanted to share with you. Read on, and you’ll have your perfect swing in no time.

1. Keep your hands low
You don’t want your ball to shoot up but instead shoot further. Limit the height of your follow-through to reduce the height of your shots effectively. The lower the ball flight, the further your shots will be. Keep your hands low in the finish, and you’ll be covering more space from your shots.
2. Parallel your forearm to your spine
To guarantee solid ball-striking, practice having your right (if you are left-handed, then left) forearm parallel to your spine, your left wrist flat, and your elbows and arms form a tight triangle. This form gives you increased accuracy and prevents injury too.

3. Get power from your body
Remember, power comes from the body and not the arms. Learn to power the club with your body by putting the club behind the ball at address, with your body in a dead-stop position. If you’ve already made it a habit of using your hands to drive the ball, you’ll struggle at first, but you’ll realize how much you ball-drive you gain by using your body. You’ll begin to get the ball in the air more consistently.
