How to Swing a Golf Club

Swinging a golf club is deceptively difficult, totally frustrating, produces gratifying results and is poetry in motion all at the same time. Many amateur golfers are in constant pursuit of that perfect swing to fit their game. Routinely making changes, many players never find what they are looking for; however, their journey always continues.

I talked before about the best golf swing and concluded that each player has that perfect swing inside themselves if they just trust that it will come out when it is ready. But, that is not enough sometimes!

Some players follow the lyrics from Billy Crystal’s song You Look Marvelous; “Nando, don’t be a schnook. It’s not how you feel, it’s how. You. Look!” No matter the scoring results they want that poetry in motion look. There really is not wrong answer to how to swing a golf club!

Just to prove what I mean, take a look at some of these great players:

It is interesting that some of the best players of all time had unique swings that were self-taught! Regardless of how they looked, every swing had one thing in common; it was repeatable! And could they repeat their swing. This is an interesting point for players to take away:

How to hit a golf club consistently and effectively, with success, comes in many forms. Only you know the right form for you!

    • Rick,

      Yes, I see a bit of Bubba in Arnie’s swing. Arnie would be one of the greats most players of my vintage would have tried to emulate. Arnie and Jack for sure.

      The good shots all share one thing…..the contact on the ball and the follow through is the same all the time. What do you think?

      • Impact position doesn’t lie. And it doesn’t matter HOW you get to impact, as long as the ball is doing what you want it to!

        I like how the follow through, while fairly consistent among all good players, has its own “flair” and uniqueness.

        I’m sure you and I can both hit the same crisp wedge shot with good contact from 100 yards….and both finish just a little differently!

        I love golf 🙂
