Easy Golf Swing Seniors

If you are looking for an easy to replicate golf swing then this article Easy Golf Swing Seniors will give you some useful tips on how to swing easier and simpler to make your golf game more robust, simple to follow golf tips for you to understand and implement into your golf game. 

Full Shoulder Turn

A full shoulder turn is a must in the golf swing, if you do not turn your shoulders then all you are doing is using your arms to generate club head speed to hit the golf ball, your arms are attached to your shoulders so if you turn your shoulders then your arms and hands will follow – trust me the human body is a brilliant piece of technology it works trust me!

When I video senior golfers on the driving range so they can actually see their golf swing they are really amazed that they only swing with their arms, why does it take me to have to video them so they can see what they are doing wrong, then even when I have shown them they still carry on using their arms to rotate and not their shoulders, that is why golf pros have a continuous queue of budding senior golfers who want to improve their game but have one major flaw – they don’t turn their SHOULDERS!

Here is a link to a video that I found on You Tube that will help you with achieving that shoulder turn that WILL definitely improve your golf game: 

Shorten Your Back Swing

How many times have you watched golfers on the golf course and on the golf range over swinging the golf club? Just because John Daly over swings it everyone thinks that if they over swing they are going to hit the golf ball longer and further, that could not be further from the truth in fact the reason John Daly over swings the golf club is purely because when he was a young lad all he had was adult golf clubs and because of the weight of them they made him over swing because of his young age, the trouble was he then became good at over swinging it, but he had one thing many golfers don’t have and that’s an abundance of natural talent!

So what you now need to do is take a leaf out of Jon Rahm’s book and watch his golf swing, shortened golf swing with so much power and torque that he actually hits it further than John Daly, but the hard thing here for many amateur golfers is shortening their golf swing at the point where it will be the most effective? If you don’t believe me then have a look at Jon Rahm’s swing here on this video off of You Tube:

Jon Rahm’s swing is so easy to repeat every time because it is short and effective, next time you are at the golf driving range try hitting a few shots with a shortened back swing not just with the driver but all of your golf clubs down to your sand iron, you will be quite amazed how consistent your ball striking, accuracy and distance improves.
