Rhythm is a very important part of a good golf swing. But what is the key to finding good rhythm every day? Rhythm is the flow or look of your swing. If you have good rhythm in golf, or anything else for that matter, you look good doing it. Your swing might not be efficient or productive but you get points for style. Some players who take my golf lessons look great hitting a ball but their timing is off and the swings are ineffective.

Many golfers are under the false impression that they need slow down their swing with best golf clubs in order to regain their rhythm. This is not the case. On the back swing your body should rotate naturally. If you start to slow down on the back swing it will interrupt your natural flow resulting in a loss of rhythm. Your body ought to rotate naturally enabling the club to reach the top of the swing without much effort. The less effort, the less resistance which will increase power.

If you suffer with inconsistency in your round where you tend to hit a lot of good shots, but spoil your performance with the odd nightmare then it could be that you swing technique is generally very good but your rhythm can be inconsistent. The golf swing with taylormade r11 for sale should be a chain reaction with one good move leading to another. When taught the swing is often broken down in to several movements but really should be thought of as one total sequence.

Here are some quick practice drills you can do to help find your golf swing rhythm. Set up to the ball as normal and close your eyes. Feel your balance at address, and then as you take the burner 2.0 irons back feel the weight shift to the inside of your back foot. Stop at the top of the swing and then release for the down swing once again feeling the weight shifting to the front foot. As you do this you will feel a beat to the swing between the weight shift, back swing, down swing and follow through.
The other way to practice is to make many swings away from the golf ball. Making swings away from the ball allows you to focus directly on your rhythm and not the distance the ball is flying. I really like them to use one of my favorite training aids, the Orange Whip. This is the best training aid that I have found to help with rhythm. I actually use the Orange Whip to keep my own swing in check. If you have never seen the Orange Whip you should check it out.

Work on your rhythm, commit to the process, and you will see much more consistency in your game.
