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?

5.10 The Ritual

A putting ritual consists of a few motions the last few you make before initiating the backswing of your real stroke. Besides being a consistent set of motions they are all made in a constant rhythm and timing sequence. It should never change. Your ritual sets the tone and timing for the rhythm of your stroke. It is this pattern and timing of motions that provides the trigger – the “one-two-three-go ” – for your stroke. Your ritual must take less than eight seconds to execute so the feel and vision of your perfect preview stroke is still mostly there fresh in your brain and body.

Once your ritual has begun there is no turning back unless you are so dis

Five Nonphysical Building Blocks: Touch Feel Attitude Routine and Ritual 129 tracted by something that you must abort the stroke altogether. And once your ritual has begun there is no thinking other than what it takes to execute the ritual and repeat the preview stroke.

I have simplified my own putting ritual since I wrote Putt Like the Pros 10 years ago. It is now slightly shorter and more repeatable taking only a five-count to execute. This means I can strike my putts within six seconds after committing to my preview stroke.

1 haven’t changed this new ritual in seven years and it’s not going to change in the future. All of my stroke mechanics have been grooved to this rhythm and I have committed them to habit. I don ‘ t have to think about the mechanics when I putt so I can concentrate on the feel and touch of my preview stroke. And if I can concentrate fully enough to create a good preview stroke (which can be difficult at times) I can putt every time with the full belief and confidence that I have made the best stroke I can. So 1 honestly feel that on most putts with any luck at all 1’11 probably make it. That’s a great feeling to have.

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

Extract from the book:

Section 4.6 should prove to you that a pure simple pendulum can swing in three different motions all of which can relate to a putting stroke. The pendulum of a putting stroke (assuming the golfer has a pendulum and doesn ‘t hit with his hands or wrists or move his body) is the pendulum formed between his suspension point (between his shoulders) and his hands (Figure 4.7.1). And it is this position of a golfer’s hands the angle of his pendulum relative to vertical that determines not only the natural swing path of his putterhead but also the behavior of the putterface angle relative to the Aimline. (Note: your elbows and forearms don’t have to be under your shoulders just your hands.)

As shown on the bottom in Figure 4.7.2 when the golfer’s hands (pendulum

(A) = no rotation; Inclined (B) and (C) = screen-door rotations.

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 79 balls in illustration) are outside his shoulders the screen-door stroke produces both a curved path around the golfer’s body and significant putterface angle rotation relative to the Aimline. This is where the in-line stroke shines as shown in the top figure: When the golfer’s hands (pendulum balls) are vertically under his shoulders his stroke path is not only naturally in-line with his Aimline his putter-face also stays square to the Aimline at all times. As you will see in section 4.8 this is an incredible advantage because the face angle is very influential in determining what line the ball starts rolling on in putting.

Great Putters Are Square

Do great putters rotate their putterfaces or do they keep them square through impact?

The follow through is now complete. The forearms are completely crossed, showing that you have gotten your hands through the ball. It may take a few days to get used to this new “left elbow close-to-side, forearms crossed-at-finish” concept. It will come though. It’s one of the best things you can do for your golf swing. No more blocking to the right or uncontrollably slicing the ball!
