Performing A Full Golf Swing

To begin executing the proper golf swing, your feet must be shoulder width apart. When
gripping the club, place the club in the joints of your left fingers with the thumb
pointing down the center or slightly to the right of the shaft. (This is written for the
right-handed golfer, all left-handers must reverse everything). Place the pinky of the
right hand in between the index and middle fingers of your left. Do not grip the club any
tighter than you would a baby bird.


The next step is the placement of the ball with respect to your stance. Firstly, with mid
range irons the ball should be placed in the center. With high irons and wedges, the ball
should be toward your right foot. With low irons and woods, the ball should be towards
your left foot or the front of your stance. Secondly, the ball must be placed at the
correct distance with respect to how far it is from your body. Your knees should be
slightly bent and your arms should be pointing nearly strait down. The club should be at
an angle in which the head is flat on the ground.


The back swing is the part of the swing that many golfers struggle with. First, keep your
right elbow close to your right side the entire time. Second, your left arm should be
practically straight. This rule is not that strict, some bending is acceptable. Next, the
turning of your body can best be done by imagining a rod down your spine from your pelvis
