5 Things You Need To Know About Golf Downswing

The challenging part of the swing is done, the club head has reached the top and now all you’ve to do is return down the club with momentum to carry it till the finish. That’s right; we’re talking about the downswing – the most crucial portion of the golf swing.

Go on, search the internet and the millions of golf websites, rarely will you find a post that’ll reveal the secrets of a perfect golf downswing. These 5 points are for everyone – you may be a novice or a pro, these points on the downswing will help you become a better player.

  1. A smooth transition is vital to a perfect downswing, but the point of change from the backswing to the downswing is where most players lose control over their club. At the transition point players lose direction and also face jerks. By correcting the grip and controlling the movement of hips, it’s possible to avoid transition errors and add momentum to the swing.
  2. At the fag end of the downswing, just before the club head hits the ball make sure your hands are ahead of the club head. What this does is that it helps you transfer the energy / force you generate through the downswing to the ball.
  3. There have been thousands of articles written about the coil and uncoil motion of the hips. To get the acceleration of the downswing right, the club head must begin to accelerate as the hips start to uncoil. Right through the uncoiling process the downswing must gradually increase in speed. Also, don’t forget to transfer the body weight laterally while uncoiling the hips. Without the weight shift you won’t be able to transfer power from your arms to the club head.
  4. Once the club head reaches the top, most players use brute force to generate momentum in their downswing. In the process, they lose control over their whole body. One easy drill to achieve a smooth transistor from backswing to downswing is to delay the descent by just a few seconds. Use these precious few seconds to gather your thoughts and then begin the downswing.
  5. All the tutorials, manuals, and tips will be of little help if you don’t practice the swing. No doubt, learning the fundamentals of downswing will make you more knowledgeable, but to become a better player, practice long and hard. Players need to perfect the downswing to have any chance at becoming a decent golfer.
