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.
