MASTERING THE GOLF SWING
The golf swing is complex, but to play the game well, you need to keep it as simple as possible! This is best achieved by working on basic swing motion, along with certain fundamentals such as grip, alignment, stance and posture.
These foundational techniques — coupled with understanding the swing plane, path and club face — are keys to unlocking optimal swing performance.
Other important factors include rhythm, balance and proper sequencing or timing.
An experienced teacher will build upon these and evaluate the student’s body build, flexibility and temperament. The teacher will take into account the student’s learning style as to whether he/she is an auditory, visual or kinesthetic learner — also referred to as a “hands on learner.”
You can teach the golf swing or you can teach how to play golf. An instructor needs to be able to teach both and a good one will. The best instructors customize each lesson to fit the student.
