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:

We’ve recently found a modification to the Balance-line called the putter “Face-

Establish Your Practice Framework 267 line.” The putter Face-line is a circle centered on the Dot-Spot and perpendicular to the Balance-line which means it will appear parallel to your putterface when the face is aimed squarely down your Aimline (assuming the Balance-line is aimed properly). The relationship of the putterface and the Face-line is shown in Figure 11.7.6; it may make proper alignment of your putter a bit easier to see.

When the putterface is parallel to the Face-line (which is perpendicular to the Balance-line) it should be lined up exactly square to the Aimline.

The Dot-Spot In section 9.10 I explained the advantages of striking the spherical surface of the ball rather than the edges of the dimples. You can help assure this kind of solid contact by finding the “Dot-Spot” (the largest area of nondimpled surface) on the Balance-line. The “Dot-Spot” is usually one of the two places on every ball where the Balance-line crosses the seam: Every ball has a seam in its cover where the two halves are joined and there’s usually a little more surface area along that line than on the rest of the dimple-covered ball.

After identifying a Dot-Spot mark the Face-line on your ball centered on the Dot-Spot which will make it exactly perpendicular to the Balance-line. This can get a little confusing so we use a hall mask (as shown in Figure 11.7.7) in the following procedure for marking balls:

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

Extract from the book:

Someone else started with Snead’s sidesaddle style and made a modification of his own which produced the best putting I’ve seen to this day. Rather than using a standard-length (roughly 35-inch) putter a fellow came to me putting sidesaddle but with a longer-than-normal (about 42-inch) putter (Figure 3.3.3). He stood beside the putting line facing the hole and swung the putter along a perfect vertical pendulum with his top hand and the top of the putter tucked under his armpit. He leaned over to set his eyes directly over the putting line then balanced his weight by extending one foot away from the line.

I can’t remember the name of the man who figured this out but I give him credit: He found something that really does work. He started every putt by standing directly behind the ball and pointed from his ball to a spot out in front of it on his intended starting line. Then he addressed the ball and again pointed down the line to make sure he was aligned correctly. Finally he stroked the ball and held his finish pointing at the same spot again exactly down the putt starting line.

This technique produced the consistently best putting I’ve ever seen and it is legal. But I’m certain that if someone switches to this style and starts winning with it the USGA probably will ban it.

One of the tenets of the USGA the ruling body of golf is to protect and maintain the integrity of the game in part by preserving its challenge and difficulty. I support this noble purpose and think most golfers feel the same way. If we lost the challenge in the game it wouldn’t be nearly so much fun. Having said that we all want to make our own putting strokes simpler so we can hole more putts score better and enjoy the game to its fullest.

In keeping with their tradition of maintaining the game’s challenge the USGA would prefer that golfers putt in what they describe as the “traditional style.” While this technique is not as simple or easy as the methods described above it’s not necessarily all that difficult either. Lots of putts have been and will be made the USGA way.

Up to this point I have been going from the easiest to more difficult ways to putt. Now I have to reverse that. In discussing the following ways to putt all of which conform to the Rules I will begin with the most difficult and work down to what I perceive to be the easiest way to putt.

The USGA would be happiest if every golfer would putt like Bobby Jones (Figure 3.4.1) used to putt and would use a putter similar to Jones’s old “Calamity Jane.” Jones putted standing perpendicular to the intended putting line and made what appeared to be a miniature golf swing. While this sounds like it might make putting easy being like all the other swings in golf in reality it makes putting quite a bit more difficult.

Here is a view from the front. The goal of this photo is to show that there is no lateral movement. Simply rotating your right shoulder around your spine.*Please note that you should NOT be cocking your wrists at the end of your backswing. While this may add a bit of power, it will totally throw off your timing. The results of a wrist cock are slices, hooks, fat shots, etc.
