The baseball grip is one of the most popular grips for beginners, where they do not interlock their hands. The grip that is comfortable is the right one for you. The grip should be firm without squeezing the club too tightly.
A lot of people like to measure the distance between their legs by positioning a basketball between their knees. Ideally, your feet should be shoulder-width apart. When you take your stance, make sure that you put equal weight on both legs. Bend your knees slightly and loosen them.
Hold the club in the air for a couple of seconds, make sure that your grip and stance are just fine, then bring the club on the downswing.
The downswing plays a key role in a good golf swing. As stated earlier, make sure that you hold the club in the air for sometime during the backswing. Bring the club down in a sweeping motion, increasing the speed as it comes down. Keep your eyes on the ball throughout. Make sure that on the downswing, you strike the ball at its base.
You're not supposed to strike the center of the ball, because that way, it won't go too high or long. Make sure that the motion hits the ball just below its imaginary axis. This will lift the ball higher and send it further. In the downswing, and while hitting, remember that the backhand gives the force, while the front hand gives the ball direction.
The follow-through is an important part to improve your swing. This is because, the follow-through can often decide the final trajectory of the ball. So, once you strike the ball, make sure that the impact doesn't shift your swing. Make sure that the ball is hit with a good, clean, and fluid motion.
