Getting in Position The start of learning proper golf swing basics is to first get into that proper swing stance.

  • Set both feet with your weight distributed evenly on the middle part of your feet.

  • Set your hips back, and then angle your upper body and spine forward, facing the ball.

  • Then bend your knees a bit to get some added stability.

Now you’re ready to take your best shot at learning the basics of a proper swing. (Pun intended ;) ) Backswing Ironically, sometimes the best way to learn golf swing basics is to learn to avoid golf swing mistakes you see other golfers making. Many beginners have a tough time with keeping their right arm close to their body as they swing. Instead they force a straight back takeaway that doesn’t produce a natural swing and sends you on a trip to the woods. Instead, keep your right arm close and bring the club back and around you, transferring your weight to your back right foot. As weight transfers to your right foot, you should feel the club rising at a 90-degree angle to the ground. Follow Through Some beginners tend to try and stop their momentum after hitting the ball, not knowing that this affects their natural club movement. After striking the ball, your right shoulder at this point should be down and your arms should extend fully. The right knee should have completed the transition by moving towards your left knee and all of your weight should be transferred to the heel of your left foot, and your right foot is on its toes. Never Stop Improving While the basic golf swing basics are the same, you’ll discover that the best golfers build upon those fundamentals to create a swing that works best for them. Constantly work on improving your golf swing, and even try new techniques that can help you improve as a golfer.
