A New Way To Swing The Golf Club

Aug 17, 2023

In this blog post, we will discuss a simple and effective way to learn how to swing the golf club correctly. Over the years, many golfers have been under the impression that the golf club swings up and down. However, this is not the case.

When you think about it, there is a ball on the ground when you play golf. It seems logical to assume that you need to go up and hit down on the ball. In fact, many people are even taught to hit down on the ball. But I'm here to tell you that you should never think like that again.

Instead of thinking about swinging the club up and down, I want you to think about going around and around. Imagine yourself standing straight up and down with the club in a horizontal position. If you were to take the club back, you wouldn't go up and down, but rather around and around.

Now, if you were to add a tilt to your swing, the club would naturally go up and down. But the key is to focus on the circular motion rather than the up and down motion. This change in thinking can make a dramatic difference in your swing.

To practice this concept, start with an iron and hold the club in a horizontal position. Take a video of yourself to see if you naturally go up and down or if you go around and around. You'll likely find that you naturally go around and around.

If you already have a tendency to go around and around, be careful not to go too flat or too high. Aim to keep the club slightly above your shoulder plane. Once you have the concept in mind, you can lower the club a bit and practice going around and around with the ball teed up.

Once you feel comfortable with this motion, you can apply it to your shots. The club will naturally work up and down on its own. It's important to remember that the club should go around and around, not up and down.

This concept is even easier to understand when using a driver. The longer club automatically swings flatter, so there is no need to go up and down. Just think to yourself, "around." Start with back swings, thinking about going around. Then, when you step up to the ball, maintain the same feeling of going around and around.

Many golfers have the misconception that they need to be tilted over or hit down on the ball to take a divot. However, this is not true. Taking a divot is a result of having the right fundamentals, not hitting down on the ball. You can learn more about this in another tip by the author.

By changing your thinking and focusing on going around and around rather than up and down, you will see a significant improvement in your swing. It may take some time to adjust, but once you do, you'll hit the ball better than ever before.
