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:

Green Speed Can Be Seen

Unfortunately you don’t see many signs at golf courses that read “Warning: Green Speed 12. Putts Will Be Very Fast and Break Excessively. ” But a trained eye can detect and evaluate green speeds within a very small tolerance. If you don ‘t believe me ask any golf course superintendent or PGA Tour pro. Both make their living knowing how fast their greens roll. How do they know? The superintendent regularly takes measurements with a Stimpmeter and the pros talk to the superintendents then correlate what they’re told with their experience of watching their putts roll.

But don’t think you can ask your superintendent the green speed at your course and automatically be an expert. Appearances can be deceiving. Fast greens usually look brownish with short grass and firm surfaces. Most slow greens have long dark green grass and tend to be softer (Figure 8.3.2). Also the thicker the grass even when cut short the slower and greener it looks. So you always should roll a few putts at any new course to check the green speed because a green that looks slow can be “sneaky fast ” and vice versa.

Grain (see section 7.10 for details) also affects a green’s speed. Because Stimpmeter ratings are taken in more than one direction grain is averaged into the green-speed reading. But grain still can have a dramatic effect on how putts roll and break. I’ve measured grain’s effect on numerous occasions: On a 40-foot putt putting against the grain can mean a difference of 10 feet versus the same putt rolled with the grain (Figure 8.3.3). So you must learn to recognize green speed in the direction you are putting.

Speed Is More Important Than Line 187

Up until now I’ve talked a great deal about visible break true break Aimlines and peen speeds. Those have all been terms referring to the conditions found on the green you’re playing. Now that you understand those concepts I want to give you another one that applies to all putts and does not change from green to green.

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

Extract from the book:

So if you can’t practice with pressure how do you make practice help your putting on the golf course when it really counts? You could try to avoid pressure on the course but that’s not going to happen. The only way to putt well under pressure is to develop a stroke in practice that works both in practice and on the course when the pressure is on and your muscles are strong. I ‘m not saying you should develop a “pressure stroke ” one that’s different from the stroke you normally practice and use. What I am saying is that you should be smart enough to use your practice time to develop a normal stroke that is the same as your pressure stroke. This is a stroke that doesn’t depend on the strength of your muscles or the speed of your heartbeat. It is a stroke that will work just as well under pressure as in practice. As you’ll see below it’s called a dead-hands stroke.

The Hit Stroke

Let me explain what this “dead-hands” stroke is not. It is not your natural stroke because most golfers’ natural instinct is to “hit” a putt with the muscles of the fingers hands and wrists. Our instincts are developed in our childhood when we play games that involve hitting things turning knobs and manipulating pushing and controlling the objects in our lives with our fingers hands and wrists. This also is the way most people putt because they consider it to be natural. But just because it’s natural does not make it either the right way or the best way.

But golfers hit their putts (Figure 5.3.1). And when a ball is hit the distance it rolls depends on how hard it is hit. The power of the putt depends on the energy or effort put into the stroke. And therein lies the problem: You can’t see or feel the power of a hit before it happens. No matter how much a golfer practices hitting putts the right distance and speed when he or she gets under pressure and tries to apply the same hit to the ball with adrenaline-filled muscles the results will be wrong. Once again as the muscles get stronger the same feel that produced good results in practice produces a more powerful hit under pressure.

Many low-handicap amateurs fall into this trap. They practice with the belief that the harder and longer they work the better they’ll putt under pressure. They believe that putting well under pressure involves courage strength of conviction or some other inner quality of the heart. I suppose these character traits are admirable but they have nothing to do with how far the ball rolls in good putting. If you insist on hitting your putts and controlling your putt distance with your muscles then the only way to practice feel and touch is under pressure. The good player can accomplish this by playing in tournaments in which he is likely to face many pressure putts. Do enough of that – and enough is a lot – and you begin preparing yourself for future pressure situations. Higher-handicap golfers have a slightly different problem. Because hitting

Five Nonphysical Building Blocks: Touch Feel Attitude Routine and Ritual 117 with the hands is the natural way to putt most golfers begin by doing just that. The results won’t be very good but because the golfer is still new to the game poor putting will seem acceptable. It’s later as these golfers improve their ball-striking and short games and work on bringing their handicaps down that their natural (hand-muscle-controlled) putting stroke limits their ability to score.
