Golf Swing Tips

To improve your golf game, it’s vital that you take golf lessons. Golf is a sport that is almost impossible to learn without some sort of guidance. Luckily, there are golf experts around the country whose job it is to teach golf. By taking golf lessons, you can drastically improve your game in a relatively short amount of time. Taking golf lessons can be an expensive, time-consuming effort. And like any good or service that will cost money and require time, you should be careful before you buy.  Golf can be a really costly game to play and it is reasonable to assume that you have invested a fair amount of money in your equipment – golf clubs, golf bag, golf balls, golf clothing, golf cart etc; – therefore doesn’t it make common sense for you to learn how to use them to their advantage and improve your skills and capabilities?

Dave Pelz’s Putting Bible – golf’s least understood skill.

Extract from the book:

272 Improve Your Stroke Mechanics anywhere you have even a few minutes of free time (many Tour pros work with it at night in their hotel rooms). But it’s crucial that you set it up properly and practice carefully. Some tracks don’t have lines to show when your putter is square; others don’t curve upward to follow your stroke all the way back and through. Use only ones with both because practice without feedback is a waste of time.

Always aim the track carefully standing behind it to ensure it is aligned precisely at your target soda can (when you sight with one eye your putter shaft should run exactly through the middle of the track and the can as shown in Figure 12.1.3). Use a book to keep balls from actually hitting and moving the can. (You don ‘t need to see where the balls roll – who cares how the carpet breaks?) This drill isn’t about the ball but about improving the “in-line-ness” of your stroke path so keep your focus on making good strokes that don’t make noise by touching the rails of the track at any time.

High-Intensity Feedback

Start with the track set up to provide one inch of total space (roughly half an inch on each side) between your putter and the side rails and count how many of your strokes make noise by hitting the sides of the track. You want to set this space tolerance so you hit a rail on about 50 percent of your strokes as that percentage is perfect for rapid learning from maximum feedback. You may have to adjust the rails for more or less space to achieve this level of performance (Figure 12.1.4). Practice about 10 minutes (about 50 putts) each session multiple sessions ea&

Improve Your Stroke Mechanics 273 day if you want until 80 percent of your strokes are quiet. Then it’s time to tighten the tolerance to the half-noise half-quiet level again.

Before you start each Putting Track session set your metronome to your body-rhythm tempo and prepare yourself to optimize your address posture and flowline positions as best you can. Assume your practice swing stance just outside the track (like your practice stance four inches left of your real putts on the green) and make a preview stroke of the putt you are going to practice. Then move into your setup in the track (use tape to mark your perfect toe-to-ball distance) and execute your ritual before every putt. If you do all this you’re not only improving your stroke path you’re committing your setup ritual and rhythm as well as your stroke path to subconscious control (and habit) at the same time.

The Long Drive Bible: How You Can Hit the Ball Longer, Straighter, and More Consistently

You need to understand the realities of putting so you’ll be more tolerant when unexplained things happen to you on the greens. You need to believe – no you need to know – that there is no net luck in putting no matter how your putts seem to be rolling bouncing or deflecting that day.

Once you understand the reality of the problems of the game and the often cruel statistical nature of its results you will be better prepared to proceed with your learning program which will lead to your improved putting. Always remain alert to the importance of immediate accurate reliable feedback and what it can do for your practice and on-course putting. So take heart and realize your better scores will come from more areas than simply improving your stroke mechanics. There’s much more to good putting than that physical stroke motion of yours.

Problems on the Greens 33

There are many different ways for golfers to putt. Having said that it does not mean that I’m advocating all or any of these methods. But it’s important that you are aware of the choices a golfer has and even a few he doesn’t unless he doesn’t care about the Rules of Golf (which I think you must if you’re going to he serious about this game).

The old adage “different strokes for different folks” is very meaningful because some putting strokes work better than others for certain players while no one stroke works perfectly for everyone. While no strokes even perfect ones make all their putts some really awful strokes do make some putts. And sometimes the differences between good and bad strokes are very difficult to measure or see. But believe me the differences are there.

Before I discuss some of the many methods you could employ let me pass on to you the one thought the one axiom that governs all my theories on putting. It is this: Simpler is better. You’ll find research test results in many different disciplines that validate this conclusion. It is certainly true in almost all of sports. Why? Because regardless of your level of talent the less you give yourself to do (and still get the job done) the more consistently you can learn to do it. Whereas the more compensations that must he made in your putting stroke the more difficult it will be to repeat in such a way that it actually makes your putts. The more complex a putting stroke (that is the more compensations that must be made to make it effective) the more uncertain (or inconsistent) its results by any golfer regardless of skill level.

The “Simple Golf” Swing: “Golf for the Rest of Us”

I want you to understand the purpose of this technique before providing the details. It’s an easy technique that will produce fantastic results. You don’t need to have a long and complicated back swing to send the ball a long way down the fairway. Try taking, what you believe to be, a half swing. The ball will go almost as far. It may not leave the clubface with the same speed, but it also will not slice 40 yards to the right. Which shot would you rather have on a golf course? The drill I’m about to teach you will help you consistently keep the ball in the fairway, and give you better accuracy with all of your clubs.
