Question by Terry: Does one use the same golf swing all the time except for putting?
I have just started hitting balls at a golf simulator. So far I am just on the driving range and do a full swing. Does the swing change when one plays golf on a real course as one gets nearer the green? What I mean is do you hit it with a less full swing or does changing the clubs take care of the differences in distances?
Answer by doingitright44
in general , yes, except that your iron swing speed will be slower than your driver swing (natural), and yes club distances are based on more loft per same swing …a lot of players will club up, and hit 3/4 swings when close to the greens with less backswing and follow thru to get more control of the ball flight and release on to the green…

Question by Jay L: In tennis the best time to start the backswing is?
Answer by Nina
In tennis, back up so you can see the ball coming and the speed it is coming at you. When it does bounce, lower your self and hit it sharply to get it over the net and not out of bounds.

Question by Undertaker 18-0 wrestlemania: every time I go to a golf course I always slice the golf ball to left?
how do I fix that everytime I lose an average of 5 golf balls it ticks me off even if I have the clubface the right way it always goes to the left
could this be because I stand to far away from the ball I need to stop loosing so many golf balls I have to go buy golf balls every week or 2 and I waste money buy them and sometimes I have to borrow golf ball from other people it makes me feel like a doofus please help me
Answer by q T i p bonfire
Are you positive that you’ve got the clubface proper?
Because it’s square at setup doesn’t mean it’s square at impact.
If you’re positive it’s square both at setup and impact, it’s either something to do with your follow through or your backswing.
Are you sure you’re hooking it? If it’s going straight left, it means your follow through is going off to the left instead of straight through. This is called a pull.
If it curves left, then you’re hooking it, and it likely has to do with your swing path.

Question by blue_eyedsunset24: Why do i keep hooking the ball in golf every time to the left, if i am right handed?
every thing i try it keeps going that way….some times it will randomly go straight but hardly ever
Answer by renegadesail
It is where your standing in relation to the ball. Go to a driving range and practice. If you slicing to the left, take a small step to the left. Until you know where to stand in relation to the ball to stop you slice. It’s all in aiming, where you wont the ball to go.

Article by The Golf Swing Genius
Many golfers think the golf swing is difficult and complicated to get correct and repeat consistently. However, this is not the case when you are working on a simple swing model or concept. I try to teach a system for a simple swing that is effective and can be learned without having to practice for hours and hours a day.
Many golf instructors will teach their students as if they were going to be touring professionals. This means they’ll overcomplicate the swing by breaking it down into so many difficult individual parts and pieces, and the fluidity and completeness of the overall golf swing is often lost. Most golfers are looking to play better and drop their handicaps enough to make a significant difference in their scores so they can have more fun and be more competitive in their rounds with their friends. Getting too technical with the golf swing can often be a detriment to many golfers especially while out playing on the course. Working on some technique on the driving range is okay, but out on the golf course, a golfers needs to have a swing they can trust and not have to think about too much.
My swing system stresses the importance of having a proper setup from the golf grip to proper posture and alignment. Golf ball position is also an important part of the setup that needs to be correct in order to hit good golf shots consistently. Making the necessary adjustments in your setup can often get rid of a lot of problems you may be experiencing with your golf swing.
The most important concept I teach in my system is to “swing” the golf club as opposed to steering, lifting, or guiding it. When you swing the club properly, it will stay on the correct swing path more easily. You’ll also gain more club head speed which will allow you to hit the golf ball farther. Good tempo and rhythm will result from a naturally swinging motion and it will actually improve your technique without even trying.
Swinging on the proper swing plane is an important component to hitting straighter and longer golf shots. In order to make sure you are on plane, try to swing the golf club directly over the tip of your right shoulder in the backswing. Then on the downswing and followthrough simply mirror that by swinging the golf club back over your left shoudler as you complete the swing. Doing this will allow your golf club to swing more on plane throughout your entire golf swing and give you more successful golf shots.
