Tip no. 12 - The Swing
with Pachesham Golf Academy

No two golf swings are exactly alike, but all good swings are built around the same fundamentals. After working on the correct Set Up, these simple pointers will give you all the basics you need for a sound golf swing.

Please note: all lessons refer to right-handed golfers

• Good posture is vital to create a consistent swing.
• The feeling when stood over the ball should be tall, balanced and relaxed.
• The backswing should be smooth and full, be sure to get a 90 degree shoulder turn.
• At the top of the swing you should feel you have turned your back to the target.
• The downswing again should be smooth; be patient at the start of the downswing, do not hit AT the ball.
• Complete the swing with your belt buckle facing the target and maintain good balance.
