Ken Brown
Ken has got tips galore for your swing
It seems there are plenty of you out there desperate to fix your swing.

We got bunker loads of swing videos in BBC Sport's 'Win when you're swinging' competition.

BBC golf expert Ken Brown had a look at the good, bad and, quite frankly, ugly swings that you sent in.

Here's some of the best of them with some choice tips that anyone can follow.


Joanne Taylor
Not much tinkering needed for Joanne
Swing one - Joanne Taylor, aged 14 from Essex

Problem: Joanne has a well tutored swing but her right hand and right foot tend to scoop the ball into the air a bit.

Ken says: "Joanne should practice her swing with her feet together."

Watch Ken's advice


Ben Wright
Ben gives it loads in Cumbria
Swing two - Ben Wright, 17 from Cumbria.

Problem: Ben has a handicap of 2.6 but says he has trouble pushing his shots.

Ken says: "From the front Ben has as splendid swing action. But looking from behind he has a very flat shoulder turn.

"If he adjusts his shoulder turn, you never know, he could get down to scratch."

Mick Jones
Jonesy lines up a cracker
Swing three - Michael Jones, 13 from Essex.

Problem: Michael has a good address position and follow through but wants to improve his 28 handicap.

Ken says: "A wider stance will help his balance during his swing. Also the club maybe a bit big for him."

You can play golf with a bad swing - but the game's a lot easier if you take the time to get a good one
