Why Golf Swing Sequence Pictures won't Help You
I know lots of average golfers who always check golf swing sequence pictures or videos of pros but don't improve much.
I think it's a good idea to copy tour player's golf swing. But there is a rule to follow when copying golf swing.
I probably have read more magazines and books about golf than anybody else in college. I was checking tour players’ golf swing sequence closely. I spent a lot of time studying their swing.
I tried to copy good players’ swings but didn't go well at all.
The reason is because you have to copy their grip first before copying swing positions. I failed to do so. I never cared for their grip because it's hard to copy someone's grip by looking at the picture.
But for instance, if you like to swing like Tiger Woods, you need to have the same grip.
Before Copying Golf Swing
So make sure you copy grip first.
Generally, most teachers will tell you to copy the swing of a player who has similar body structure. If you are tall, try to copy the taller player's swing.
But I think that the ideal golf swing differs from person to person.
I told you to copy the grip first. But even if you do that, it might not suit you.
David Duval is known to have a very strong grip. His father was also a professional golfer and David's only coach.
He didn't try to fix David's very strong grip.
David Duval came on tour with that grip and started to win. His very strong grip was a neutral grip for him.
So copying is a good thing, but you need to find what suits you at the end.
