Top Tips for Teeing Off

Engage with the West Michigan Woman Community!


Your swing a little rusty after the long winter? Golf Digest's top tips for improving your game include:

Swing around your body.
During your practice swings, swing your club an inch or so above the ground to allow for an arc, instead of an up and down motion. You'll gain speed, which means greater distance.

Swing through, not to, the ball.
Keep your momentum through the arc, not just to the point when the club makes contact with the ball, for greater power.

Don't be chicken.
Chicken-winged, that is. Keep your arms extended through the turnover at impact and follow-through, instead of folding at the elbow.
