What is a swing and why is it important?

In golf, the swing is the turning movement you make before hitting the ball. It is this movement that we’re going to be practising here. Your swing is an essential part of the game because it determines where your ball will land and thus your performance on the course. 

Mastering your rotation and giving the ball the desired speed is no mean feat. If you’re looking to improve your technique, the list of tips below will clear up any doubts you have about how to increase your golf swing speed.


1. Warm up using more weight before taking your swing

Improving your strength is the main way to improve your swing speed. As the game progresses, you’ll feel more tired and the rotation of your swing will slow down. To improve your rotation, the number one advice is clear: work on your strength. Noemí Jiménez recommends warming up by taking practise swings without a ball a number of times before you take your swing. If you take your practise swings with two clubs, all the better, as it increases the weight. Ten or fifteen repetitions should do the trick.


2. Benefit from the inertia generated in your actual swing

If you’re not sure what the previous exercise really does, let us explain it a bit more. As you turn and hit the air, your body gets used to the movement of the rotation. And if you practise with more weight than you’re going to use in your actual swing, all the better still, as you increase inertia. At the moment truth, your rotation will be much faster and you’ll thus give your swing more speed. Which is exactly what you need to make the ball go further and make the holes seem much shorter!

Think about your posture

As you will know, moving your body to where you want it to be is essential. And to achieve this, not only is it important to play with weight, inertia and your mind, but also your posture. To boost the speed of your swing, you need to think about your grip. 

What you want is for the weight of the club to rest on the final two fingers of your left hand. Your right hand should be below your left, with your little finger of your right slotted between the index and middle fingers of your left. This will help your swing to flow effectively. Combining a good grip with a comfortable, relaxed posture will improve your chances of taking a good swing.
