The key for women golfers in playing an enjoyable round of golf, and a key factor in allowing it to come up to any golfer’s expectations – from the freshest novice to the avid professional- is the golf swing. The search for the perfect golf swing is a never ending challenge that occupies the mind of both male and female golfers. Golf is rarely an exact science, and there are a lot of golfers who become considerably frustrated as a result of being unable to master their swing to the satisfaction, and their enjoyment of the sport is being affected by it, as well as their score line. This can even cause a knock on effect where players begin to become overanxious about their swing and their overall play suffers as a result.
If you are a women golfer, and you feel that you haven fallen into this category, then at least take comfort that you are not alone. In fact, experts suspect that more than 90% of golfers world wide fall into this category. At that many of them subconsciously drift away from the sport as a result of their frustrations.
All of us know all the factors that go towards making an acceptable golf swing. A proper stance and grip, speed and timing of the shot all play their part, and a confident, relaxed approach is probably the most important ingredient of them all.
An increasingly growing number of golfers have discovered the key to overcoming their swing problems. They have discovered, that in today’s computer driven society, there is even a range of golf correction software on the market. Software that has been shown to produce some very encouraging results.
What this software can provide is an analysis of where the golfer needs to work to improve their golf swing. In order to assess the difficulties the golfer is having with their swing, the player is videoed, whilst taking a few practice swings. By analyzing the video content in slow motion, the software then takes into account some vital factors, such as the height and the weight of the golfer, and produces the ideal stance of the golfer should be adopting when making their swing.
There are many such programs available for purchase and download through the internet.
An interesting fact is that male golfers are more prone to use this type of software to attempt to improve their golf swing, and women much less so, at least till now.
The general impression is that men like to watch the video of themselves making their golf swing, and to even have it shown in public. Women golfers, whilst having no problem in taking the step of having their stance electronically measured and timed tend to take the findings more seriously and are less inclined for them to be public knowledge.
They may be taking the correct attitude that whilst golfing is a hobby and to some a profession and should be taken seriously, it still is supposed to be a sport and to be enjoyed. What should always be remembered about swing correction software is that it is an aid to show women golfers where they may be going wrong with their golf swing, and provide suggestions on how to correct it and no more. The golfer must be capable of drawing their conclusions from its findings, and of making the necessary changes to improve their swing.
As in everything else practice and experience should eventually cause the female player’s golf swing to improve and improve until it reaches an acceptable level that she can live with and above all enjoy her game.
