How To Achieve The Golf Club Swing Speed You Desire
The golf club swing speed is what will determine your driving distance and ultimately your scores.
This is the reason why virtually every golfer desires to increase their golf club swing speed as much as possible. Some golfers still believe that if you simply practice the right technique, long enough, they will achieve this desire of their heart.
The truth is that there is only one thing that can improve golf club swing speed. And that is golf exercises. In many other sports, the more you play the actually game, the more you improve on the specific skills required to perform well in that particular sport.
Golf is different because the golf swing lasts about a second and therefore the only way to get golf-fit and improve performance is by exercising....
Correcting a Golf Slice
Slicing the ball is a common problem among golfers. A slice is when the ball travels from one direction to the other [depending on the left or right-handedness of the golfer], generally not in the direction you want it to go. This contrariness of the ball not to go straight toward the hole is the bane of the golfing world.
Correcting a golf slice is not difficult, but may require plenty of practice, patience and more practice.
There are three ways to correct a slice. Hire a golf instructor, purchase some DIY books and/or grab a golfing buddy to follow you around the fairways and tell you what you're doing wrong.
In the meantime, practice these simple guidelines in the backyard or out on the course....

Option 1 - You go to a clothes shop and browse around until you see something fashionable and then buy it and hope it fits you OK and is comfortable. That is the normal way most people buy their golf clubs.

Watching the tournament rounds of today's LPGA players is more exciting than ever. Annika Sorenstam continues to dominate women's golf and shows where finesse, strength and athleticism come together to make way for the future.

In 1998, only 7 short years ago, Annika drove the ball 246 yards in average driving distance. Today, her average distance is 272 yards.

Many athletes suffer from pain in their elbow that is generally attributed to repetitive stress. Golfers and tennis players are susceptible to conditions that are very similar to each other; they are called golf elbow and tennis elbow. Sometimes it may be a little hard to tell the difference between the two conditions. But there are signs that can distinguish between the two.
