Do you have a favorite golf player? Is it Tiger Woods or Ernie Els? Have you ever thought that your swing looks like theirs? Woods and Els are two of many great golfers. When you watch them play, you will definitely notice their graceful and powerful swings. Honestly, it is difficult to imitate that just by watching.

Having a good swing requires constant practice. Apart from that, your body should be well toned up for it to perform well. Here are some basic tips to help you improve your golf swing and may help you shoot in the 90s or even 80s.

Warm up

Just like any other game or sport, golf players need a little warming up before starting a round. This is what some players, especially amateurs, neglect to do.  It is best to arrive early on the golf course and take a few minutes to stretch those muscles and warm up. This will make your muscles “know” that they are in for serious workout and that they should be prepared. Taking a few  swings in the driving range will also help you get tuned up to help you perform better.


This is really important, not only for golf. Constantly exercising your body and muscles will keep them toned and ready for any activity. This will also prevent common body aches and pains that you may feel when playing golf.

Getting into the habit of exercising, especially tuning up your muscles will have a great impact on your swing. It will help with your stance and aids in giving good balance and control on your swings.

Do not swing too hard yet

It is really tempting to give your swing that extra effort. However, it is not advisable unless you already have gained the control of your swing. The key to a powerful and graceful swing is having the correct balance and control with your stance.

So how do you get to learn to control your swing? Again, it’s tip number 2. Regular exercise will, in time, allow you to have a faster, more controlled swing.

Aside from practicing these simple steps, it is also advisable to ask for help from the pros, personally or thru online methods. They will give good advice based on their own personal experiences. Keeping updated with the latest about golf will also help.

There some golfers who tend to be so keen to improve their swing that their minds are focused on every aspect of the swing itself; doing that will only make your swing look awkward. Instead, try to relax your body, keep your eye on the ball and the smooth swing will naturally follow.

If you try to do these things regularly when you play golf again, you will notice how the change in your technique has improved your overall performance.
