golf swing tips"Flippiness" (the dreaded early release) occurs if your body gets too far in front of the golf ball. When this happens, your club will drastically lag, usually with an open face. Instinctually, your hands will work to close the face at impact. This level of timing is difficult even for the pros to execute on a consistent basis. What usually happens is the clubhead races in front of the shaft and strikes the ball with an open or a closed face, and typically on an ascending arc. In baseball, if you get too far in front, you'll hit the ball to right field, unless you flip the wrists. The same is true in golf. You need to establish a firm left side to keep your head behind the ball and stop the flip. Photography by Warren Keating

Usual suspects

Enemy number one: Your body is out of position or out of balance. Your body senses this, so your hands take over to try to get the clubface squared at impact. However, this adjustment usually takes the form of a flick or flip of the wrists.

Fixing The Flip

Set up to an impact bag (or an old duffel bag stuffed with towels), push the clubhead into the bag and set your body into a good impact position. The lead arm and shaft should form one straight, vertical line with the head back. Make sure your lead leg is braced and that your hips are turned slightly open. Hold this position to create the proper feel.

    1. 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

      1. 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!

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Nice Blog!Great tips on playing golf. As a beginner these are so helpful for me. Apart from that I am also learning lessons on this golf from online by thegolferswebsite. Thank you for sharing with us.

  6. I am constantly on the lookout for informative golfing blogs. Not only do I work in a golf schools I am also an avid golfer. There is always room for knowledge and improvement when it comes to golf. I really enjoyed this post and always look forward to learning more! Great read!
