We all want to have a better golf swing, but the intricate set of movements creating the swing can only be perfected one way, practice your golf swing.
In his book Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell recites research that in order to be professional, one must practice with a purpose for 10,000 hours. Most of us do not have the time, or inclination, to spend that much time on one movement, even though we would gladly swear to 10,000 hours of constant practice while losing to our weekend golfing buddies.
Practice is the key, so commit to an amount of time more reasonable to the average golfer.
Twenty minutes every other day will help create the muscle memory to execute a smooth swing more consistently. If the weather is bad, practice your swing indoors, it does not matter where the practice occurs, just as long as the practice is conducted regularly.
A good tool to use during your swing practice indoors and out is a swing aid that will help you commit to practice (might we suggest the Pocket Pin High Pro golf swing training aid?). It will give you instant feed back that weight has transferred to the front foot, so you can hit down and through the ball.
As we mentioned, the Pocket Pin High Pro can be used indoors or outside, so there is really no excuse not to practice your swing. Just think of the smile on your face when your taking money at the end of a round instead of giving!
