Many Ways To Swing A Golf Club
"Line Up The Parts"
By: John Lombardo
There are many ways to swing a golf club effectively and to hit functional golf shots that allow you to score
better. As a matter of fact, it has always been my intention to learn to swing a golf club, and to hit good to
great golf shots, in a consistent manner that does not get involved in the shot process. This gold intention has
become a life-long journey.
Due to the passing of time and to changing physical conditions as regards my body and muscles, I have had to learn
to swing the golf club in many different ways. It is a matter of necessity. If you want to play good golf, better
golf, and do it consistently as the years go by, you have to learn to adjust solid fundamental golf swing technique
to your own changing muscle and body requirements. You cannot do things now that you were able to do just a few
Being a PGA professional, I have also had to learn to play golf on a moments notice without warm-up, or without
having played in many days. It is a tough proposition. When I was playing everyday it was easy. I always shot
between 67 and 74, without fail. Whether I hit 16 greens or 3 greens in regulation my scores were always the same.
I practiced a lot and played even more. As job requirements as a club professional changed over the years, I began
to play less and less, and was able to play less than that. To be honest, my game suffered greatly for many years.
Kind of like when a well trained professional athlete retires and losses that edge that kept in in the pros.
You never get it back, except in golf.
Golf truly is the game of a lifetime. As the years went by I had to learn to play and play effectively again. Many
years and many injuries later I have come to realize that there are certain moves that are common to all good great
golf swings. There are certain ways to line up your body body parts and let them move in a sequence that allows
great golfers to hit great golf shots over long periods of time, over a lifetime. While solid pre-golf swing
fundamentals never go out of style, there are simple in-swing keys, ways of getting our body parts in the correct
position, that can allow you go hit consistently good shots.
With good shots come good scores.
One of the greatest players and ball strikers I have ever encountered one gold me to learn to do simple things and
learn to repeat them every day. While adjustment is the life-blood of every golfer and golf game, you still have to
get yourself, your body parts, and the golf club, in the right place to make solid contact with the golf ball.
As a golf teacher and PGA pro, I try to get my students to understand the importance of executing consistent and
solid fundamentals within the confines of their own unique golf swing requirements. Our goal is to get the club
face on the golf ball, to hit the ball out there a way, and to make the ball go reasonably straight. As a golf
teacher and instructor, and player, I have had to learn to intertwine all these aspects of golf, and to learn to
incorporate them as a player and to communicate these simple swing ideas on the lesson tee. You have to be able to
make a useful move at the ball and get a useful result to get someone to buy in to what you are telling them. You
have to see the results and see the results now in order for an idea to take hold.
I charge $60 for a single lesson. Here I am offering you a chance to get this information for $20. The move or
moves I am offering here are just as common to Ben Hogan and Sam Snead as they were to Old Tom Morris and are to
Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy. To hit good shots you have to get your body and golf club in a good position. What I
have learned over the years is to start at the finish so to speak.
One thing to remember is that your basic swing does not change. What changes is your physical and mental response
to your golf swing as you attempt to hit shots and to shoot scores. By giving yourself a place to go, to get to,
your physical response can be productive and consistent. No matter what kind of shape you are in, if you learn to
line a a few key body parts, you can hit good golf shots over a long period of time.
