4 Tips for Perfecting Your Golf Swing, Waikoloa Village, Hawaii

Whether you’re a seasoned golfer or a newbie, every player should be looking to improve their golf game. From balance to tempo, there are a variety of factors that influence your swing. Below, the staff at Waikoloa Village Golf Club, the leading golf course in Hawaii, share a few tips to help you become a better player.

How to Improve Your Swing

1. Slow Down Your Tempo

Concentrate on your tempo when swinging the golf club; don’t worry about swinging too slowly. Pacing your swing will make it easier for your body to shift its weight for maximum power.

2. Keep Your Hands Low

golfLower your hands to reduce the height of your shots and lower the trajectory. This positioning makes it easier to control where you want the ball to land. While you can accomplish a similar feat using a heavier club, mastering this technique allows for more versatility.

3. Use Your Body to Power the Swing

Remember, power comes from the body and not the arms. Rather than using your hands to drive the swing, begin by moving the club with your chest and shoulders.

4. Swing in Balance

Avoid moving back on your heels or forward on your toes when you swing. This upsets your body’s balance and will force your hands to compensate when powering the swing. Try standing on a foam log while practicing. You’ll find it much easier to maintain your balance on the field after mastering an unstable surface.

Regardless of your skill level, signing up for golf lessons is a reliable way to improve your swing. For the leading instructors in Hawaii County, turn to the team at Waikoloa Village Golf Club. In addition to lessons, the Big Island golf course also boasts beautiful greens overlooking the Kohala coastline, and an on-site golf shop and restaurant.
