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:

There is more to seeing than meets the eyeball. While getting new glasses or contact lenses can change the way light is focused in your eyes you also can change the way your brain understands and interprets that light. For example in stead of seeing a large metal box in your kitchen with round circles on the top you want to be seeing an electric range with heating coils used to cook food (and which would burn your hands if touched). Likewise in putting: If you understand more and better interpret the meaning of what your eyeballs take in from the greens the more and better you can see the true break in putting.

For example if instead of seeing a green that slopes to the right you could see a

2-slope green that will make your nine-foot putt break six inches to the right that

Develop Your Artistic Senses (Feel Touch Green-Reading) 335 would be good. If instead of seeing a pretty fast green you could see a 10-speed green just like the one you putted on last week when you ran the ball eight feet past the hole that would be very helpful. And if instead of seeing a putt that looked as if it broke two inches into the cup you’d see a visual break of two inches which you know means you need to start the ball six inches above the hole (because it will truly break six inches) you would be much more likely to make the putt. In all of these cases you would be seeing more and seeing better.

This isn’t as complex or confusing as it sounds. Green-reading isn’t physics: Anyone can learn to do it. You’ve already been looking at and seeing all these things every time you putt. But you’ve been interpreting them incorrectly and making your subconscious deal with trying to make things right. The truth is the better you read (see the break in) greens and the less your subconscious has to compensate the better you will putt. If you take the trouble to improve how you “see” greens and break as I ‘ve outlined above you will begin to read greens better.

And now comes the companion step: If you also learn how to putt without unnecessary compensations you’ll be on your way to great putting.

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

Extract from the book:

Data taken in my Scoring Game Schools show conclusively that reaction aiming is a learned skill that most golfers develop as a way to compensate for their putting stroke deficiencies. Players who block their strokes to the right of their Aimline learn to aim to the left of the Aimline. Players who pull their putts to the left learn to aim to the right.

Think about it: Have you ever seen golfers who block putts to the right also aim too far to the right? Of course not. They would miss putts so far to the right it would be ridiculous. They learn to aim to the left and they think this is proper because it produces better results. So the overriding influence on how golfers learn to aim is as a reaction to their results. That is reaction aiming.

Position Aiming

Less important to the golfer’s overall aim than reaction aiming position aiming is a golfer’s tendency to modify his or her reaction aim based on the position of the eyes relative to the Aimline . There are valid reasons for this phenomenon.

Aimline then he is sure to misalign his putter (and likely miss the putt) because now his view has changed to alignment angle B. The mind can ‘t keep everything properly aimed if it has to deal with constantly changing views of alignment.

Any golfer whose eyes are not consistently vertically above his Aimline will have to change his view of alignment due to the changing angles he sees for putts of different lengths. The result is inconsistent alignment. The only way to align the putterface properly time after time is by positioning both eyes exactly vertically above the Aimline so the alignment angle is always zero degrees for all putts re gardless of length (Figure 4.4.3 C and D).

Detailed procedures for learning how to aim properly will be discussed in sec tion 12.6 where I’ll show you how to improve and even perfect your ability to aim. But for now realize that aim is an essential fundamental of putting a learned skill you have probably learned incorrectly (without knowing it) based on the results of past putting strokes and the positioning of your eyes (which you should keep vertically above the Aimline Figure 4.4.4).

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

Extract from the book:

Golf Tuition Alford Golf Club

The completed grip with both “V” shapes pointed toward the right shoulder. Note the “V” shapes are parallel with each other.Hopefully, you already have a grip that closely resembles this one. There are some slight variations, but this grip is standard for the most part. It should produce the best results. However, if you have a different grip than this, and you are more comfortable using it, you may continue using it. A grip is hard to change, and this one may feel really uncomfortable to you; however, benefits will come if you embrace this new grip. The “Simple Golf Swing” will most likely provide to you the desired results, even if you use your current grip. However, if you are still having problems when you get through the system, please incorporate the above grip method into your swing.
