How To Do Balance Exercises For Golf

As a beginner playing golf, everyone gets told to not hit the ball too hard. Staying focused and hitting the ball with the centre of the club will give you a longer shot than a swing that doesn’t hit at the club’s centre, no matter how hard.

Establishing your balance frees you to hit the ball correctly.

Keeping your head still will allow you to focus on the ball. With your eyes on the ball, this creates a foundation for keeping you balanced.

It is imperative that you keep your head perfectly still and ensure it doesn’t move during your swing. Movements or distractions that disrupt your balance mean you lose focus on the ball.

The key to balance

Keeping your body relaxed is the key.  Relaxing your muscles and body will prevent your head from moving during the swing.

Use a mirror to watch yourself. This allows you to quickly realize that you need to relax in order to keep your head still while you swing. Since your build and movements are not the same as mine, you’ll have to work out some of the details on your own.

Work the most on keeping your head in the same position from start to finish through your swing. Doing this will let you focus on the ball and you will turn your hands at the right time.

If you can master keeping your head completely still, you’ll see several problems disappear altogether. Eventually, you will grip your club correctly every time, keeping your balance and keeping your head still, without even thinking.

Form for follow-through

A correctly formed follow-through will also mean that you can keep your balance.

Concentrating on your balance, and keeping your head still will prevent you from swinging to hard or pulling your club away. The amount of strength you put into your swing will be just right, and you’ll stay relaxed and finish successfully with a smooth swing.

Enjoying a great game of golf requires keeping your balance. This isn’t a quick fix, it’ll take time but you should start seeing improvement quickly, but be patient.

Focus on maintaining your balance, and your head in one position, and in almost no time at all, you will be enjoying such an improvement your friends will be asking for your secrets.
