4 Simple Golf Tips To Help You Stop Blocking Your Shots
How To Get That Perfect Golf Swing
When you start playing a game of golf there may be many kinds of shots and swings involved, and you may find it difficult to keep up. Moreover, in the process of learning all these different kinds of shots, you may end up creating more flaws like blocked shots.
WHAT ARE BLOCKED SHOTS?
When you have a vertical swing plane, you tend to end up with a blocked shot as your arms are pulled across your body. This then causes the clubhead to be at an open angle and thus the shot is blocked.
WAYS TO AVOID BLOCKED SHOTS
Blocked shots are common in a game of golf and even experts have faced this problem. In fact, the more proficient you become at golf, the more you tend to face blocked shots. However, you can avoid these blocked shots in the following manner:
- Get the perfect alignment
- Rotate your hips for a full swing
- Count till one
- Keep your arms at shoulder height
Always keep your left shoulder in square alignment with your target and keep your feet atleast shoulder-length apart. You can bend your knees slightly to shift your weight from one foot to the other easily and keep the ball closer to your back foot.
When you get the perfect rotation, you can create accurate shots that have more loft and power. If you don’t rotate your hips fully and till you have reached the top of your swing, you will end up with a blocked shot.
You must always count till one before you start your downswing, so that your arms can move smoothly and the clubhead will strike the ball in an accurate manner. If you count till longer than one, your arms will take too long on the downswing and you will get a blocked shot.
When you follow through with your shot, you need to keep both your arms at shoulder height so as to avoid a premature swing. This will help maintain your angle and will not cause a blocked shot.
When bring your hands on the downswing, rotate the knuckles of your opposing hand to close the face of the putting wedge. This will help you to avoid blocking your shot and will give you a firm and precise grip. The ball will soar long and fast across the fairway and you will need to make just a few more shots to create a hole-in-one.
