The 8-Step Swing

Women golfers who have been golfing long enough to have the basics down pat should consider Jim McLean’s video “The 8-Step Swing” as your next one-stop shop. One of the top three golf instructors in the world, Jim has worked with amateurs and professional golfers alike for over 25 years, helping each individual consistently improve his or her swing. In fact, Christie Kerr, the winner of the 2007 U. S. Women’s Open and Angel Cabrera, winner of the 2007 U. S. Men’s Open were both students of the Jim McLean Golf School! Coincidence? We think not!

The most important difference between the 8-step swing and other swing teaching methods is that each segment of the swing is addressed completely independently of all the other parts. The final blended product is a smooth, consistent drive, but each learning process is small enough to perfect on its own. In addition, while the eight steps are the same across the board, the specific positions of each have an array of degrees, which allows men and women golfers to find the exact position that suits.

Types of Shots

There are eight main shots a tennis player uses in a competitive match. When executed correctly, each shot can be very affective towards a victorious game. The serve sets the pace in the beginning of the match. Each serve that is not returned or returned correctly can gain you a point. After tossing the ball into the air the ball must be hit under or over hand into the diagonally opposite service box without touching the net. There are different types of serve that professionals practice, these include; flat serve, topspin serve, slice serve, and kick serve. Serving over hand, however, maximizes power and speed preventing your competitor from hitting back with ease. When your opponent is unable to return the ball, or even touch it with their racket it is known as an “Ace.” If they touch the ball and still fail to return it, the play is known as a service winner and you are awarded a point. The forehand starts from the side of the body and makes contact with the ball by scooping the racket upward and across the body. Popular grips (ways to hold the racket) that correspond with the forehand serve include, continental, semi-western, eastern and western. Each can provide a different momentum and direction for the ball. The backhand is typically a straight hitting motion starting on the left side of your body. By twisting your waist and arms to the right the racket can make straight contact with the ball and send it soaring across the court while using an eastern or continental grip. Continue reading
