What I tend to do nowadays is to focus on one of two points, basically forgetting about where the club is going, what plane it is on, have I got the right club for the shot I am just about to make, just keep it simple and take it back to basics So my ‘Golf Tips for Seniors’ is:

Golf Swing Tips for Seniors

  1. Keep your head still at all times

I see so many older golfer swinging the golf club and swaying when they take the club back ready for the downswing, this is just asking for trouble, as I said keep it simple, go back to basics, don’t worry where the club is going, keep your head still and just create a nice easy swing, keeping your head still an eye on the ball will inevitably lead to better shots and better striking of the ball. When I am playing bad or below my capability this is the first thing I address, keeping your head still will lead to a better all round golf game.

   2. Think of ‘Trigger’ when taking the club back

What I mean by this is just think of one thing before you take the club back, one I have always used is a right-handed golfer is getting my right shoulder out of the way, so imagine you are addressing the ball then all you have to think about is getting that ‘right shoulder’ out of the way, then all the rest of your mechanics that you have learnt over the years will kick into place. Instead of addressing the ball and thinking, take the club back, keep it smooth, keep your eye on the ball, make a good follow through etc, just one simple thought or trigger will help you immensely in achieving a consistent ball strike.

Golf Swing Tips for Seniors

So to summarise my two things I always focus on keeps it pretty simple, keep my head still and just think about one thing, getting my right shoulder out of the way. These might seem like simple ‘beginner’ lessons but believe me, going back to the basics of the game will help you always and simple drills or thought patterns that you can adapt to on the golf course and not just the range!
