Simple Golf Swing for Seniors
Simple Golf Swing for Seniors
The easiest way to find a simple golf swing for seniors is looking no further than the great Fred Couples – silky smooth and powerful which equates to effortless power.
Now well into his 50’s and still playing a great competitive game, the US Masters played at The Augusta National is always one of his favourite weeks of the year, after winning the US Masters in 1992 he ensured that he will be able to tee it up at the Masters for many years to come because of his exemption of being a past winner.
He once was the World Number 1 and he has amassed 57 professional golf tournaments in his playing career and he continues to excel on the Champions Tour with the elite over 50 years of age senior professional golfers. All senior golfers looking for golf tips for the senior golfer can learn a lot from the way the great Frederick Steven Couples swings the golf club and hits the ball with maximum power.
As you can see in the video Fred Couples keeps a very still head during the address, backswing and follow-through, something that all of us senior golfers can learn from when making our golf swing.
When we have had golf lessons we are always told about the basics of the golf swing, well I know Fred Couples is in a league of his own but you cannot go far wrong replicating his swing!
You can see how he maintains that straight left arm throughout the backswing and follow through, Fred takes the club back to the maximum point where his wrists take over and enables the golf club to point at the target at the top of the swing.
I am not suggesting taking the club back as far as Fred does but get it back far enough that it feels controlled and within your ability if we all had the flexibility that Fred Couples has at his age then we would all be hitting the ball great distances.
You will see that once he releases the club for the downswing he maintains that 45-degree angle between his left arm and golf club, this is something that all senior golfers should try and replicate and practice. Image included to show what I mean by holding that 45-degree angle.
You will also see how Fred also nicely transfers his weight onto his left side or leading leg, holding that 45-degree angle and making sure his hands are in front of the ball at impact.
To end off the swing he maintains that strong follow through and holds that follow through until his ball is on its way to the target.
A fantastic swing, and one that we should all look at pause the video at certain points and really take on board all of his great traits, the main one being the way he holds his head still until follow through, a major flaw that seems to come about when we get into our senior golfing years!
I recently put a video together on how I break down the ‘four’ points of the swing down, holding the club back on the ground, keeping the distance between your wrists and chin, holding that 45-degree angle and facing the target in your follow through.
Pretty easy steps and I hope that you enjoyed the Fred Couples silky smooth golf swing video and also mine on simple golf swing for seniors. To watch more of my videos you can visit my YouTube Channel by CLICKING HERE.
