Build a Better Golf Swing Than Masters Champion Scottie Scheffler

Scottie Scheffler, currently ranked the number one golfer globally, proved all critics and naysayers wrong on Sunday by winning the 86th Masters.

Though his dominance in the game is undeniable right now, Scheffler's golf swing is still the subject of much criticism. Here are a few ways to get a better golf swing than Scottie Scheffler.

Improve Your Golf Grip

Bobby Jones, the greatest golfer of the early 1900s, once said, “Good golf begins with a good grip.”

Grip the club as if you were shaking a young child's hand: light enough so that you don't hurt them, but with the intention of a solid handshake.

Alignment

In setting up correctly, you ensure that you limit your dispersion (how wide your misses are) to that target. A great way to practice your body setup is with an alignment stick.

When using an alignment stick, try to feel that your feet, hips, and shoulders are all aligned with the shaft, which should be parallel to where your club is aiming.

Ensure Proper Shoulder Rotation

The most important advice for a better backswing is to make a full rotation. Golfers of all levels make the critical swing error of not rotating enough, leaving lots of distance (and accuracy) on the table.

In making sure that your left shoulder passes under your chin (or as close to it) on the way back, you maximize your ball striking power.
