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

By: Jim O Connell

The inside out golf swing refers to the swing plane that the golf club takes the way it passes through the golf ball. Swing plane is one of the golf swing tips that are generally difficult to grasp, but achieving an inside out golf swing shared with a golf grip that maintains the club surface in correct position will enable any golfer to shape the ball as is necessary.
The golfer we target when talking regarding inside out golf swing drills is primarily the one who's troubled with a slice, or cutting across the ball on an outside to inside plane, therefore imparting clockwise spin on the golf ball. The normal inclination, when attempting to swing directly down the target line, is to take the club straight back from the ball. Because our golf movement is circular, which is, the club head in effect travels around the body, taking the golf club directly back will make it physically impossible to extend the golf swing in a straight line through the golf ball, or from the six o'clock point 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 from the golf ball from a seven o'clock point on the golf ball. On the takeaway, when I feel my swing is at its best, it almost feels like my hands are brushing past my right hip. Normally the path you take the club back will be the channel the club will come into the golf ball, so taking the club back correctly is critical to initiate the correct inside out golf swing.
The next phase of our inside out golf swing drills is to ensure the club head "extends" through the 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 club, must follow, therefore pulling the golf club to possibly an eleven o'clock position relating to the ball, and most likely a mishit. For one more of our inside out golf swing drills to be practiced at the driving range is, stick some tees in the ground on either side of a path to the seven o'clock position on the ball, next a few more on either side of a path leading from the one o'clock point. At first, take a few relaxed swings getting your body to sense its position as the golf club head passes through theball on an inside out golf swing plane. You will probably feel the necessity to relocate the golf ball further back in the stance than you normally do, but with practice I'm certain you'll be satisfied with the results.
Our final of our golf swing tips is the grip. It must be strong enough to get the golf club square to the ball at impact, or hitting the golf ball with an inside out swing will result in a push shot going straight and right of intention.
The great Ben Hogan one time said, "You only hit a straight ball by accident". Most low handicappers attempt to shape the golf ball one way or the other, and by knowing which way they will shape it gives them greater margin for error. These inside out golf swing drills when perfected will allow you to consistently shape the ball right to left.
