Most golfers realize that by focusing on the basics of the golf swing, one by one, they stand the best chance of dramatically improving their game. This is because the fundamentals of the golf swing form the golf swing that is at the heart of the game of golf.

Golf swing basics should be found in the three proper golf swing segments which are the backswing, downswing and all three impact and follow up.

The backswing is one of the most important golf swing bases because every shot starts here.

If the backswing falls short, so are the resulting hits. At this stage, the focus should be evenly placed on the rotation of the body and the extension of the club and arms.

Moving on to the downswing as the basis for another golf swing, this movement actually starts at the legs and hips, rather than the arms. There should be a clear shift of weight from back to front with the knees, thighs and hips all starting to move forward. It has to be the correct movement at every proper golf swing.

Impact and its follow-up are the golf swing basics that make up the entire swing.

Impact weight should be on the outside of the front heel and the inside of the back foot.

The whole awkward motion of a golf swing is unnatural to the body and this is why the body resists and it becomes very difficult to develop all the subtle movements that go into the foundation of a proper golf swing.

Even endless workouts may not be effective in developing your body muscles in such a way that the basics of the golf swing come as broadly as possible. This is where practice comes to play a key role. Many successful golfers have used golf-specific exercises and conditioning to improve the fundamentals of their golf swing.
