You may have reached the point in your golf game where you think getting any better may require more time than you have. However, you can still shave strokes off your game in Wesley Chapel, Florida, even when you don’t always have time to hop on the course or head to the driving range. Hone your golfing skills by tracking your abilities and spending some time on your swing outside of the driving range.
Keeping your own statistics, such as greens in regulation, fairways hit, or putts per hole along with your total score is an excellent way to improve your game. It gives you a much clearer picture of your strengths and weaknesses than your base score. The more information you have, the easier it is to fix the problem. Technology makes this even easier with apps that can track totals, as well as inputs for each round.
Rotating Your Torso
If you think power in your golf swing comes from your arms and wrists, you’re probably not generating as much power as you could. While the arms and wrists play a vital part of a swing, it’s secondary to torso rotation.
You can practice this proper motion without hitting a ball. To start, hold a golf club across your shoulders. Rotate your torso away from your target until the club points at the ball on the ground. Then, keeping your spine straight, rotate your torso the other direction until the other end of the club points at the ball. This will teach you proper technique for swings, including the often difficult task of keeping your back straight.
Once you’re tracking your statistics and perfecting your swing, you can look for the best equipment and hit the driving range to optimize your practice time!
