The full golf swing is the primary foundation upon which all other golf swings are based. It is the swing most often used when teeing off or hitting long shots from the fairway. The primary objective of a golfer executing the full swing is to produce maximum distance, accuracy, control and consistency in each golf shot. All movements of the body must be made in a sequence, and at a pace which allows the golf club to be swung in a rhythmic motion in the simplest possible arc, and on a path that produces on-center hits and maximum club head speed without great effort.
