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:

” ‘t leave until I hole 10 straight threefooters”).

CHAPTER 15

15.1 Overview Concepts The single most important concept in putting is that it is part of a great game. Never forget that golf is a game to be played and enjoyed for its beauty the thrill of competition and the many and varied joys to be encountered while in the process of trying to post the best score you can on any given day. Yes it is just a game but a very special game one of the best ways to spend and enjoy your time. It’s very true as people often say that golf can be a microcosm of life itself with struggles and heartaches trials and tribulations victories and defeats as well as fun and jubilation with family friends and total strangers alike. It is the lifetime sport you can play for as long as you can move your body and you can enjoy it at any level of proficiency. It is a game impossible to master yet simple and basic enough for even the most mundane of us to enjoy trying. Putting is but one of six games that make up golf (Figure 15.1.1).Yet it constitutes golf’s most frequent shots (almost half) and is an endeavor utilizing a skill set unlike any other in the game. The golfer’s swing stance posture grip knowledge and attitude are tested differently in putting than in any of golf’s other games and golfers who don’t putt well don’t score well.

Wrap-Up 365

Golf is beautiful outdoor corridors carpets trees holes defined by sand and water sunshine birds rain wind companions calling us to play “Come see what score you can post today.” Within golf putting is sloping and undulating greens growing grass and a moving hole which from a new and unique position every day dares us to go for it yet hides behind an almost invisible veil of footprints and gentle breezes.

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

Extract from the book:

The True Roller

After about 24 years of research I’ve determined that the easiest way to putt (notice I say “easiest ” not “easy”) is to roll putts from the True Roller. As shown in Figure 3.2.1 you can see that there’s no stroke at all: Simply aim the True Roller and then release the ball from the height required to provide it with the necessary speed. Looks easy right? The True Roller never pulls or pushes putts its backstroke never moves inside or outside the line so you might think it would he unbelievably easy to make putts using it. But it’s not that easy because you still have to know where to aim it and how fast and how far to roll the ball.

The True Roller is the easiest way to putt because it is as simple as starting the ball on the right line (in the right direction) and at the right speed. But that doesn’t mean it is easy. I know because I use it all the time in my research to determine the right speed and the right line and it can take me many tries to find the perfect release point and direction. But once I’ve got them I can roll the same putt exactly the same way over and over and over again. And ultimately that’s what you want your putting stroke to do. So the True Roller is as close to the ideal as I’ve found.

Shooting Pool

Not quite as easy as the ‘true Roller but fairly close is rolling the ball as if you are shooting pool. In Figure 3.2.2 I ‘m demonstrating this technique on a practice putting green. l’ve actually putted like this a number of times on a number of dif ferent greens and grass types because it proved to me just how important speed is to good putting. When “pool putting ” starting the ball on the chosen line is sim ple but it doesn’t help you choose the line and giving the ball the proper speed is just as difficult as it is when standing up and using your putter. Again this is not a method I think the USGA should allow. I’m merely explaining that it’s not nearly as easy as you might expect it to be. (If you don ‘t believe me get a pool cue and try using it on some breaking putts on your practice green.) Just as with the True

Roller you have to find the right speed if you hope to make anything.

Both of these methods are easier than other types of putting because they remove or at least reduce the difficulty of starting the ball on the desired line. But the pool method for sure (and to a certain extent the True Roller) is just as difficult as most other methods in transferring the correct speed to the ball.

Golf Swing Tips

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

First of all, it’s important that you realize that your grip will affect the results that you get. However, it’s not as complicated as the other systems make it out to be. First, grab the club with your right hand so the face of it is toward the target. Keep the face pointed toward the target, while placing your left hand on the bottom of the grip or handle. At this point you should be holding your left hand out flat, so that it is touching the bottom of the grip. Position the joint where your left pinky meets your palm directly underneath the handle of the club. Keep the pinky there and place the first joint in your left forefinger directly underneath the club. Now, do not lift your fingers up, bringing the grip of the club into your palm; instead, hold the handle steady with your left fingers and wrap your palm around the top of the grip. This is an important distinction. Again, don’t wrap the fingers towards the palm, but instead wrap your palm around the top of the club. Now, you should be able to easily place your left thumb directly on top of the club. This should form a V-shape where your left thumb and left forefinger meet. This V-shape should point directly to your right shoulder when it’s complete.
