Golf Tip – Tension Free

January 8, 2016 Posted by Matt

Tension FreeYour swing should be tension free from the very moment you step up to the ball.  Many times you will see players stand perfectly still over the ball and then start their backswing with a quick jerk.  The result is usually a poor shot.  You want to feel loose and smooth when you make your swing.  One way to make your swing tension free is to start with a little waggle of the club, tap your toes to feel ground under you, or make a slight forward press to begin the swing.  If you remain static for a long time over the ball, tension will build in your muscles.  Watch some videos of golf pros and you will notice how they stay tension free when they address the ball and begin their swing.
