Golf Swing Drills Emphasizing Inside Out Swing Direction-Golf Swing Tips

By: Jim O Connell

The inside out golf swing refers to the swing plane that the golf club takes as it passes through the ball. Swing plane is among the golf swing tips that are most tricky to master, but accomplishing an inside out golf swing combined with a golf grip that keeps the golf club surface in proper position will allow any golfer to shape the ball as is required.
The golfer we seek out while talking regarding inside out golf swing drills is primarily the one who's troubled having a slice, or cutting across the golf ball on an outside to inside plane, therefore imparting clockwise spin on the ball. The natural inclination, while attempting to swing directly down the target line, is to take the golf club directly back from the ball. Since our golf motion is circular, that is, the club head in effect travels around the body, taking the club directly back will make it physically not possible to extend the golf swing in a straight line through the golf ball, or from a six o'clock position to a noon point relating to the golf ball.
So the first of our golf swing tips is, when we initiate the swing, to take the club away from the ball from a seven o'clock position on the golf ball. On the takeaway, when I feel my swing is at its best, it virtually feels like my hands are brushing past my right hip. As a rule the path you are taking the club back would be the channel the golf club will come into the ball, so taking the golf club back correctly is critical to initiate the proper inside out golf swing.
The next phase of our inside out golf swing drills is to ensure the club head "extends" through the golf ball to the one o'clock position. This requires some swing keys. If the hips and left shoulder open too early, the hands, and therefore the golf club, will have to follow, consequently pulling the golf club to perhaps an eleven o'clock point relating to the golf ball, and most likely a mishit. For another of our inside out golf swing drills that need be practiced on the driving range is, push some tees in the ground on either side of a path to the seven o'clock spot on the ball, next a few more on each side of a path leading from the one o'clock position. To start with, take a few relaxed swings getting your body to feel its position when the club head passes through thegolf ball on an inside out golf swing plane. You will probably feel the need to move the ball further back in the stance than you typically do, but with practice I'm sure you'll be pleased with the results.
Our final of our golf swing tips is the golf grip. It must be strong enough to get the golf club square to the golf ball at impact, or hitting the golf ball with an inside out swing will result in a push shot going straight and right of target.
The great Ben Hogan once said, "You only hit a straight ball by accident". Most low handicappers try to shape the golf ball one way or the other, and by knowing which way they will shape it offers them greater margin for error. These inside out golf swing drills when perfected will permit you to consistently shape the golf ball right to left.
