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:

In really difficult wind conditions lag your long putts (from over 15 feet) while rolling the very short ones (from less than 3 feet) firmly. On long putts focus on leaving yourself the shortest possible next putt. Rely on your short game to save strokes by setting up putts that are short enough to make even in the wind. And putt quickly (execute your ritual just don’t waste time); this will minimize the chance of the wind changing between your last practice stroke and your real stroke.

Finally don’t let the wind beat you before you get started. It’s easy to overthink or get psyched out by possible wind effects when in fact most putts won’t be affected or if they are the effects will he small. So work on everything else about your putting – stroke mechanics aim and setup feel touch and green-readingbefore you start worrying about the wind. Become a great putter first; then you can worry about becoming a great wind putter.

9.8 Balance Matters in a Putted Ball

Have you ever chipped or putted a ball that had a lump of mud that didn’t come off when you hit it? (Figure 9.8.1) If so you know the ball can do some pretty funny things as it rolls to the hole even if you hit the shot properly. Funny but understandable things because golfers accept that the mud would make the ball unbalanced and cause it to roll off-line.

Now imagine what would happen if that same blob of mud or a very small piece of metal were inside the ball just under the cover. This weight (unobserved by the golfer) would unbalance the ball the same way the visible blob of mud did so this ball too would move oddly across the green.

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

Extract from the book:

You will see many balls and test results from balls rolled from the True Roller in this book. Remember that the True Roller is simply starting each ball in a given direction at the given speed. And that is what putting is all about.

Look next at the top of Figure 2.6.5 which shows how far the same five balls will roll on an uphill putt (released from the True Roller each with the same energy as before). The uphill putts stop closer together (the distance between the longest and shortest balls is 7.5 feet) indicating that on uphill putts balls tend to roll closer to the same distance. This means the roll of an uphill putt is less sensitive to the length of the stroke than putts on a level surface. The lesson is that even if you don’t hit all of your uphill putts the right speed be sure to get them past the hole.

That gives them a chance to go in and the longest ones will probably stop near enough to the hole to leave no-brainers coming back.

Now look at the bottom of Figure 2.6.5 to see how far these same putts roll given the same amount of starting energy on a straight downhill putt. There ‘s a big difference from the level and uphill putts. Of course each downhill putt rolls farther but more important the spread of distances between balls has increased meaning the roll distance is more sensitive to energy input. Now the distance between the longest and shortest balls is 18 feet. So your downhill stroke has to be about three times more precise than your uphill stroke to stop a putt at the right distance. When putting downhill make a stroke of the wrong speed and you’ll have trouble making your next putt.

I’m not saying that understanding putting like this will make you a great putter. But I am saying that understanding nature’s rules and where the dangers lie in putting can help you be a better putter. And not understanding what putting is all about will make it even more difficult for you to learn to putt well.

So if you don’t know that downhill putts break more than uphill putts on the same slope (covered in Chapter 7) then you won’t be making many downhill-breaking putts. Or if you believe that Bobby Locke and Ben Crenshaw struck their putts with overspin to make them dive into the hole then it’s unlikely that you’ll work on those aspects of your putting that actually can help you putt better (see section 4.9).

Notice that the left elbow is still locked at this point. The elbow is just crossing the imaginary line that you have created between your eyes and your belly button. Remember, try to stop your elbow at this point. This is the point where your wrists will start to flip through the ball.Also notice the angle between the left arm and the club shaft is almost the same as it was at setup.
