Improve Golf Swing The Non-Traditional Way

Improve golf swing seems like a thought that is on our minds as golfers dozens of times per day. Do you agree? But what are you currently doing to improve your golf swing?

Let me take a guess. Spending money on lessons, that may-or-may-not be working? How about the latest-greatest driver? Did it lower your score? Golf balls? They say the Titleist ProV1 makes a ton of difference. Has it for you?

I could go on-and-on but I won't. I think you get the idea.

So I've mentioned some very common, 'traditional ways' to try to improve your golf swing. But I haven't mentioned the MOST important one.

Do you want to take a guess?

Have you read any of my other 200 hundred or so articles floating around the web and in newspapers? If you haven't then you may not know what I'm going to say.

But if you have?you know exactly what I'm going to say!

Look in the mirror?that's your answer!

No this isn't a joke. No I'm not trying to yank your chain. I'm trying to get you to realize what is holding you back. It's not taking lessons. It's not buying more equipment or $40 golf balls.

It's getting right at the heart of the matter! Your 'physical limitations' are keeping you from making a mechanically sound and repeatable golf swing.

Think just for a minute!

If your body can't make a 90 degree shoulder turn?it's a fact you will lose a TON of yardage off the tee and with your irons.

If you can't maintain your golf posture throughout your entire golf swing?you have no chance to swing consistently for 18 holes.

If your core is weak?you will not be able to generate any power going into impact, therefore you will see a weak shot that most likely goes 'offline' quickly.

Can you see the picture more clearly now?

So what do you do?

You go see a local golf fitness professional who will take you through a golf fitness evaluation to determine your weaknesses and limitations and draw up a plan to improve them.

If you don't have someone in your area?or the cost is a bit too steep; do a search online for golf fitness, golf training or even golf exercises and see what you come up with.

FYI - make sure to pick the first few 'non-colored' results on the search pages. These are the 'real' results?not paid advertisements. You want to find a product or program that covers every facet of golf improvement?that you can afford.

This is the next best thing to having your own golf fitness trainer.

Once you embark on a golf training routine?you won't have to be thinking improve golf swing anymore!
