Editor’s Note: For the following collection of 10 Best Golf Swing Tips Ever — what we view as indispensable tips for swing and short game drills — Golf Tips consulted some of its top contributors over the years. This story was updated May 9, 2017.
1. Keep Your Hands Low
Limiting the height of the followthrough will effectively reduce the height of your shots. The lower the hands, the lower the ballflight. Moving the ball back in your stance or choosing a stronger club and trying to swing easy are other ways to accomplish the same thing, but they’re less reliable and more difficult to execute. Instead, keep your hands low in the finish (compare the two photos at right), and the trajectory of your shots will be lower.

Lovely tips. Just got back into the game after a 2 year spell out. Look forward to implementing these in my next round.
You know that the traditional golf swing is so hard to time. Even professionals who practice every day struggle sometimes with timing. But for the average golfer timing is next to impossible with the traditional golf swing. However, that’s all going to change for you now. Because in The Stress-Free Golf swing there’s only one move you need to perfect. And when you implement this one move, it will drive your entire swing and help you to hit the ball properly and with control! http://dld.bz/secretbenhoganmove
When I first started using this program: https://sites.google.com/view/golfswingpro/home , I was playing off seven. Now my handicap is down to two. I have developed a much lower ball flight as well. I can hit the ball on the sweet spot on almost all my shots. It’s amazing
Great tips man pure gold, any new comer to golf should study these.
Very helpful indeed.
My only question is, are there any good tips to stay accurate when you add power? It seems whenever I try to add power, my accuracy is compromised.
Alex, that is very common.
What often happens is people will use their arms more to add power. This messes up the technique completely. Remember, power comes from the hips and everything should flow together. It’s really worth checking out the guide ‘Monster Golf Swing’ which really helps with this. You can find it at: http://www.MonsterSwing.info
GolfTipsMag also have loads of gems on their website to learn from. Hope this helps!
very good in my lessons i get told all of this and if you dont use these tips ur not going to score a good round
You forget the most important tip. KEEP THE SPINE IN PLACE and rotate around it. That way you impact the ball just as you set it up. Greatest golf fault is getting the spine out of place. If you manage to not do that all the rest is just simple fine tuning.
One point I think it?۪s for every golfers that power comes from the body not from the arm but the steps you described will be appropriate for a left hander as well? I got a good PDF how to use the left palm during a swing from TheGolfersWebsite. If anybody wants then I can share that PDF here.
Tip number three is something that took me a long time to learn. I lost a lot of accuracy and finesse when I tired to put a lot of power into my hit. Once I focused on my form, the power came naturally. The Happy Gilmore method doesn’t really work.
That makes sense that you’d want to use your body for power in your swing. The whole body working together has more strength than your arms do alone. I bet that will improve my swing. I know that I have the tendency to only use my arms, so this will be an adjustment.
