Golf Swing Tips: Identify Places On Your Left Arm For Distance Control

One of the best golf swing tips of late is to identify different places on your left arm as a reference from your line of vision during your backswing,  for distance control.

The reason why this is one of the best golf swing tips yet is it provides a gauge on how far to swing each club during your backswing to hit your ball a precise distance.

There are many places on your left arm you can use as a reference with your line of vision to gauge how far you should swing your club during your back swing when using these golf swing instructions.

You can greatly perfect your golf swing by using some of these techniques.

For example, when I am using a lob wedge to chip a ball from light rough approximately 15 paces to the hole location of a relatively flat green, I will take my club back until the  wristwatch  on my left arm intersects the back of my ball from my line of vision, and then begin my downswing.

I customarily wear a wrist band just above my wristwatch and if I need to chip a lob wedge 20 paces to a hole location on a relatively flat green,  I will take the club back until my wrist band intersects the back of my ball from my line of vision, and then begin my downswing.

Since I use different clubs to chip around a green from light rough, I can use the wristwatch and wrist band on my left arm as a reference with my line of vision to chip a ball in five pace increments, all the way up to some 40 paces.

I also use various muscles on my left arm as references with my line of vision to pitch my ball specific distances with each club.

The inside crease of your left elbow also can be used as a reference with your line of vision during your backswing to hit straight golf shots to specific distances with each club.

So can the end of your shirt sleeve on your left arm be used as a reference with your line of vision during your backswing to control distances with each club, whether your intent is to draw the ball, fade the ball or to drive the golf ball straight.

For instance, if I need to pitch a ball 15 paces to the pin on a relatively flat green, I will swing my 64 degree wedge until the end of the shirt sleeve on my left arm intersects with the back of my ball from my line of vision, and then commence my downswing.

If you truly want to perfect your golf swing and control your distances, with different swing sequences, with each club in your set, use various places on your left arm as a reference with your line of vision during your backswing.

If you do, I think you will agree that these are some of the best golf swing tips you will ever receive.
