Golf Swing Tips for the Senior Golfer

Golf Swing Tips for the Senior Golfer

In this article golf swing tips for the senior golfer I want to initially start off with a recent video I compiled, this video will help the senior golfer add some distance to their game but also create consistent, straight and better-controlled shots.

It is a really simple drill to adapt and to add into your game, a simple angle that needs to be maintained to create hidden power and accuracy.

I hope that you found this video useful and can adapt these simple tips into your golf game, but as always with the game of golf all new drills or techniques take time to in grain them into your golf swing, but please be rest assured if you can make this golf tip work for you your golf game will show remarkable improvements not just in accuracy and length but also your ball striking will improve over time. Well worth watching the video a couple of times to fully master what I have suggested, and also if you have any fellow friends who also play senior golf please pass on the link to the video, it will also assist your golfing buddies in improving their game also.

Another couple of additional tips that I always like to advise senior golfers on is to not think of too many things when you are addressing the ball before preparing to play a shot, keep it simple and focus on as few things as possible and trust your swing.

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 Swing Tips for the Seniors Golfer’ is:

1. Keep your head still at all times

Golf Swing Tips for the Senior Golfer - golfer teeing off

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 and 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 being 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.

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!

    Excellent post I’m not a seasoned golfer but I do enjoy it a lot in my spare time. I just recently started a different shift at work so I can’t get out there like I use to. I do however have a buddy who’s into golfing he was excellent in his prime as well. He had a wreck not to long ago and suffered some brain damage and forgot how to play golf. He’s out of rehab and back on his feet now and wants is eager to learn again. I hope this site helps him out. Wish us luck
