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:

I’ve run some tests with onset putters and the results are generally positive. Most golfers seem to putt well with onset putters saying they make it easier to see down the Aimline. Despite this there’s been no shift to onset putters or a demand for them. My staff will continue testing these designs but until we have some conclusive evidence I suggest you run your own tests before buying one type or the other (or for that matter a straight in-line-hosel putter).

Face Material

At the Pelz Golf Institute we have a pet theory (not to be confused with experimental data or proof) that the best putter would have the softest face because it would create the most friction. This theory is based on our knowledge that the ball follows the face-angle direction of the putter at impact more closely than it follows putter-path direction while golfers have more control of the putter path (see Chapter 4 for details). So if softening the face would help the ball follow the putter path more closely then softer faces would give the golfer more control.

The following example is a ridiculous exaggeration but will let you see the basis for our theory. Imagine a putterface made of soft sticky chewing gum. At impact the ball would stick to the face so the player could follow-through to the hole hold the puller over the hole and shake it until the ball fell into the cup (Figure 11.6.19).

Such a face eliminates the effect of face angle allow-

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

Extract from the book:

Now how do you do this? By far the most important thing in your mind prior to the putting stroke should be an image in your mind’s eye of the stroke you want to make. This should he a clear picture – based on your observations reading of the green and knowledge of the conditions – first of what the putt is going to do and then how you are going to stroke it so it does exactly that. The subconscious sees this stroke image and uses it to tell the body what to do. Obviously you want this image to be of a good stroke and to be clear strong and proper so it gets the right idea to the body about executing a good putting stroke.

The importance of this image is something we deal with in depth in our schools. We go to great lengths to get golfers to see and feel in their mind’s eye what their perfect strokes are going to be like before they try to make them. Because once you see and know exactly what you are trying to do and have a clear picture of it in your mind’s eye it is so much easier to do it.

The basic idea is to keep your conscious mind busy seeing your perfect stroke during your practice swings as a way to build your confidence and form a clear picture in your mind’s eye. Once you see and feel how you want to stroke your putt the trick becomes simply keeping your conscious mind busy and out of the way (for example thinking about your preshot ritual) so your subconscious can do its thing. Our procedure for developing this skill and our recommended drills and practice techniques to ingrain it are detailed in Chapters 11 and 13.

4.13 The Best Way to Putt

A quick review. The easiest way to roll balls at controlled speeds on your intended line is to use a True Roller. Mechanically the simplest way to swing a putter along your Aimline is to straddle the line and use a croquet-style putting stroke.

But the best legal way to putt is to take a perfectly fit putter and aim it accurately from a square setup with your feet knees hips shoulder and eye flow-lines aligned parallel-left of your Aimline; put your eyes vertically over the line and your hands vertically under your shoulders; then stroke your putt solidly on the sweetspot with a dead-hands pure-in-line stroke keeping your putterface square to the Aimline (Figure 4.13.1). In the next few chapters you ‘ll learn that if you

This is a different view of the complete follow through. Your forearms are crossed, and that is the sign that you have completed the follow-through correctly Keep your head perfectly still during the entire swing This is the last crucial step that you must master. It’s by far the easiest step, but ironically it will produce the most results. The biggest problem is that you don’t always know when you are moving your head. You may find that swinging easier helps keep the head still, but other than that it is just something that you will have to really concentrate on.
