Now, how do we improve onrepparttar mechanics ofrepparttar 145634 golf swing? I would have to say it is through two things:

1) Proper instruction (Find a good teacher and stick with that teacher. Most ofrepparttar 145635 pros do, why not you?) and 2) Practice, practice, practice. As they say “practice makes perfect”, and I believe this is true when it comes torepparttar 145636 golf swing.

Now, on torepparttar 145639 second point when it comes to consistency in golf. Again, this is probablyrepparttar 145640 lesser known ofrepparttar 145641 two points about consistency inrepparttar 145642 swing. It is also equally as important asrepparttar 145643 mechanics of your swing. One question might help you realizerepparttar 145644 importance of “the body” when it comes torepparttar 145645 golf swing. What swingsrepparttar 145646 golf club?

Some ofrepparttar 145647 answers I have heard are: “my hands,” “the swing,” “my hips” and even “the grip.” Well, these answers are inrepparttar 145648 ballpark and are close to being right, but let me simplify it for you. The answer is your body. Quite simple when you think about it: The club head is attached torepparttar 145649 shaft, your hands griprepparttar 145650 shaft, your arms are attached to your shoulders, your hips rotate throughrepparttar 145651 swing, and on and on we go. It isrepparttar 145652 body that swingsrepparttar 145653 club. So why is this so important to consistency in your golf game?

We know from our golf lessons, that there are certain positionsrepparttar 145654 body is required to be in duringrepparttar 145655 golf swing. For example, at address we know thatrepparttar 145656 feet are slightly wider than shoulder width, knees slightly bent, back at a certain angle, head in a specific position, and our hands grippingrepparttar 145657 club a certain way. This is onlyrepparttar 145658 beginning of whatrepparttar 145659 body has to do to swingrepparttar 145660 club correctly. Now, fromrepparttar 145661 address position your body must moverepparttar 145662 club onrepparttar 145663 correct path and generate club head speed to hitrepparttar 145664 ball accurately and with power. Doing this over and over is what we define as consistency.

What most people do not understand is that forrepparttar 145665 body to performrepparttar 145666 golf swing correctly, certain parameters need to be met byrepparttar 145667 body. The body must have certain levels of flexibility, strength, endurance, balance, stability, and power. If your body does not haverepparttar 145668 minimal levels of these factors in relation torepparttar 145669 golf swing, then what do you think will happen? Well, let me tell you, it will be very difficult forrepparttar 145670 body to swingrepparttar 145671 club withrepparttar 145672 correct mechanics. And what will this result in over time? A large amount of time spent onrepparttar 145673 range with little improvement onrepparttar 145674 course and a swing that looks less than desirable.

So what does consistency in my golf swing really come down to?

It is vital to understand that improvements in your golf swing mechanics and improvements in your body specific to golf are equally important when it comes to creating a consistent golf swing. If you ignore eitherrepparttar 145675 body orrepparttar 145676 mechanics, it would be safe to say that your golf swing and game will suffer. Take some time on a routine basis to address bothrepparttar 145677 mechanics of your swing andrepparttar 145678 body supporting it. I think you will findrepparttar 145679 benefits to be very rewarding.

Continued from page 1

Hawaii is also a popular kitesurfing location. If you're looking for a good place to kitesurf while on vacation, you should think about going to this state. One thing to keep in mind is that while Oahu is where most tourists go, there are several other islands. Some ofrepparttar less populated islands, like Maui or Kawaii will probably have more room for you to go kitesurfing.

These are notrepparttar 145449 only places where you can go kitesurfing aroundrepparttar 145450 world. Pretty much every country that has a lot of coastline and great beaches has a kitesurfing organization - and you can even go kitesurfing on some large lakes. Just make sure that you look up as much information as you can before you go there, and have fun!
