If you are playing golf just for fun or if you want to get into it a little bit more serious, you will probably want to swing the golf club as consistently as possible.

Many people just don’t realize how difficult it is to be consistent with swinging the golf club and you need a lot of practice to master it to a certain degree. This is also one of the traits that makes golf as frustrating as it can be enjoyable. The good thing is you can improve almost infinitely so you have always something to look for.

As with many other sports, making a great swing consists out of many details, how you stand on the ground, how you hold your golf club, how bent are your knees and many other things that come into play.

Most important tips for a consistent swing

Mastering the stance

Everything starts with how you stand. You have to be comfortable and you have to be stable.

Align your body

Your body needs to be perfectly aligned if you want to master your swing. Your upper body should be pointed slightly to the ball you are trying to hit.

Bend your knees

You have to bend your knees, this will make you more stable and it will also make your stance more dynamic and ready for that swing.

Perfect your grip

How you hold your grip determines how you swing your club. You want to be relaxed yet have a firm grip so you can control the club correctly.

How to swing the club

Now this is the most important part and also the most complex one.

Steps of the swing:

  • Start with upswing
  • Follow through with your downswing
  • Make sure to have the shaft leaning forward toward the target at the moment of impact
  • Follow through with the swing
  • Don’t force the swing, let it come naturally

Expert Tips Guaranteed To Improve Your Golfing

The sport is actually a very fun and rewarding activity, having numerous health benefits. Golf is something everyone can learn. The following article will give you advice to improve your knowledge.

Don’t bother renting yourself a golf cart, walk instead! This will exponentially increase the amount of exercise that you get on the course, and turn it into an extremely beneficial way to improve your health! Walking also prevents your muscles from getting cold, which can mess up your shots.

TIP! Doing so enables you to determine your proper and most successful stance. It is important to have a proper golf stance, but there are different factors that can affect the stance, such as height or gender.

Put your whole body behind your golf swing. A lot of beginners think their arms should carry the swing and end up with a weak swing by employing this misconception. You will be more effective if you use your entire body.

Test your posture when preparing to swing by wiggling your toes. If you can move your feet very easily, then you have not aligned your body properly enough to take your shot. When preparing to swing, lean in just enough for you to be able to move a little.

Try to golf with better players and take note of what they do. You can learn a lot from a fellow golfer. There is no need to find a professional player to learn some new techniques from someone better than you. All that’s required is watching a good player as they play. Learn from their presence, such as how they handle themselves, the directions of their visual focus, the art of their swing, and how they carry this from hole to hole.

TIP! You may want to ask the advice of a golf pro when deciding which new clubs to buy. Take their advice, and always research the newest innovations and try a wide variety of golf clubs before deciding which ones to purchase.

If you’re going to treat yourself to a golf club, have it custom-fitted. Everyone has different body types, heights, and strength. The club that works for one person may not work for another! Only a custom club is guaranteed to suit you and your style perfectly.

Worn Spot

Before you pay for a previously-owned club, check out the head. If a club has been overused, you can tell by the shiny, worn spot on the head. This worn spot is not good for your shot, as the head of the club does not connect with the ball correctly.

TIP! Learn how to hold your club correctly from the first time you play. A common mistake many players make is thinking that a harder club grip means they can power the ball farther down the fairway.

Do not get caught up in trying to assume an unnatural stance. Practice swinging at the ball sans club. Flex you knees, bend a bit at the waist, and have you arms fall easily in front of your body. Then clasp your hands as if holding a club and retain this position. These elements make a natural golf position. Any discomfort you feel in this stance is the result of overcompensation.

Always use the proper stance. Try tapping your toes without your feet moving to see if you are in the right stance. Only a small amount of effort should be required to do this. If it’s hard to do, then you’re leaning forwards too much; if it’s easy, then you’re leaning backwards too much.

To keep your motivation for practicing and playing golf, don’t forget to have fun. You’ll rapidly improve as long as you keep practicing, and keep looking to experienced golfers for assistance and tips.

TIP! For increased power in your golf swing, focus on involving your whole body in the swing. Do not fall into the trap of many beginning golfers and assume that arm strength is all that is needed.

Always keep your focus on the golf ball. This adage is most popular with baseball, but is just as important in golf. To maximize your drive length and accuracy, make sure you follow this tried-and-true formula.

Having your arms limber and in shape is vital to having a good swing. Workout with those ideas in mind. Use stretching exercises to supplement your strength exercises, and work in a massage whenever possible. Massage, in particular, keeps joints and muscles loose, and optimizes your range of motion. Try yoga as well as traditional exercise. Yoga can help both your arms and torso become more loose and flexible so that you can swing your club appropriately.

If you are an early-morning golfer, do yourself a favor and don’t choose sneaker-style golf shoes. Though some waterproofed models are available, most sneaker-style shoes will soak through during a walk through wet turf.

TIP! Examine your club to find its center or “sweet spot.” No matter what brand of golf club you own, it should have this spot; when you strike the ball using the direct center of the club head, you can gain incredible drive length and precision.

When practice time is at a premium, focus on the short game. Focus on your chipping abilities and putting skills. If your skills are strong on the green, it will pay off in over the long run. If your schedule is a bit more generous, you might consider beginning with wedge practice. Cap it all off by practicing your wedge shots.

It does not matter how skilled you are at golf, there is a good chance our ball will land in a bunker or sand trap. Getting out of these bunkers can really mess the sand up. Be a good sport and leave the bunker the way you came to it by giving it a good rake. After all, golfers wouldn’t want to play if messy sand traps made it more difficult to get their ball free of the sand. Thus, you should rake your bunker when you’re done with it so that the next golfer can enjoy his game.

Golf has endless physical and mental benefits, and it is a simple sport to learn. Now that you’ve viewed this article, you are prepared to begin a game of golf.

The approval of the drug will bring a new window of opportunity for the companies, both geographically and therapeutically

Biogen Inc (NASDAQ:BIIB) and Ionis have been filling their mutual investigational molecule nusinersen for the New Drug Application (NDA) to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).  The molecule is indicated for the management and treatment of type-1 spinal muscular atrophy (SMA).
 
In August 2016, both the drugmakers have published their ENDEAR clinical study results in relation to the SMA type 1 disease with achievement of the primary endpoints. With reference to the results, the companies have shifted patients in an Open Label Extension Study from clinical trial. The investigational molecule has shown drastic improvement in the motor symptoms of patients receiving the drug.  

Biogen has worldwide rights of the drug, for which it has paid $75 million to Ionis. The company has to pay other royalties for the clinical trials, regulatory approvals and marketing of the drug. In addition, Ionis is eligible to get $150 million in downstream payments in relation to the regulatory milestones.  

MDA has provided $750,000 to Adrian Krainer at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in New York for the clinical research on the early stage patients of SMS to vitalize the role of nusinersen. Otherwise, MDA has invested approximately $45 million to ascertain and develop the role of nusinersen to look for other pathological aliments.    

Moreover, the companies are planning for the submission of the drug to European Medicines Agency (EMA) in October 2016 and other geographical areas by the end of 2016. The EMA committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) has given approval for Accelerated Assessment reducing the standard protocol time. 

Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is a debilitating disease affecting the patients via muscle wasting due to nerve cell degeneration. Approximately one in 10,000 live births are affected by this disease. According to Biogen’s statistics, there are 35,000 infant patients suffering from the debilitating disease across US, Europe, and Japan. 

There is no treatment available till date for the disease and if approved, the drug can generate $1 billion on yearly basis. The molecule has already gained secured status due to its vitality in the US and Europe and is expected to gain approval from the regulatory agencies keeping in view of the important role it has to play.

Mozilla’s co-founder Brendan Eich’s Brave Browser will now pay users in bitcoins to view ads that they want, in the browser’s ad replacement mode

Brave is available on a wide range of desktop and mobile operating systems like Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android. The idea behind the plan to pay users for viewing ads is that ads with malicious intent with tendency to invade the privacy will be blocked. In their stead, ads from trusted networks will be shown, and not just for nothing. The users will then be compensated in bitcoins for the trouble of viewing the ads approved by the browser in the first place. The only tracking Brave promises to do is the sort which would allow the browser to analyze a particular user’s browsing habits, in order to display more relevant ads.

The ads approved for viewing will not contain any sensitive content, without putting the identity of any viewer at any sort of risk. The compensation for viewing ads was previously hinted at by Brendan Eich, who said that the revenue would be shared with both publishers and users. Once the advertisers pay up for a certain number of viewings or impressions, the amount would then be accumulated into an aggregate pool. The approved payment plan from ad-networks for all parties was would then be as following: –

  • 55% for Publishers
  • 15% for Brave
  • 15% for Ad-Matching Partner
  • 1%% for Users

Payments would be credited to a Bitcoin Wallet verified user-to-user by phone numbers and email addresses. A micropayment system, called “Brave Ledger”, would also be available for users choosing to donate to publishers.

On the other hand, users will have the option to pay and block all sorts of ads, pay certain publishers to block their ads, or even go full ad-block mode without making any payment at all. All these avenues would be at hand for the user to explore, with secure micropayments at the helm of the whole business model.

Brave 1.0 Development release should be ready for release sometime next month, by which time this proposed payment plan would be approved from feedback. Users can, however, seek the risk-free – and return free – option of not paying and not being paid for any ads. But the innovative idea and fairly proper implementation and division of the accumulated pool does seem like a proposition that should be discussed.
