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?

A Hard Truth About Compensations

Having more than one deficiency in your putting game isn’t a life-long sentence. It just means you’ll have to work on more than one correction at a time. And if your improve ments don’t come at the same rate you may putt worse before you putt better. This is why

I often recommend using several practice techniques (and feedback devices) simultaneous ly or in tandem one after the other. The problem and its compensation developed to gether so it’s best to get rid of them together.

I’ve seen too many well-intentioned golfers improve one aspect of their putting game then lose that improvement when their putting results were less than they expected on the course and give up. They reverted to their old ways or went off on a new direction looking for some other improvement (by trying a new putter new grip new stance or new thought) and looking for instant gratification. You must realize and regularly remind yourself that you’re not just removing problems you’re also trying to remove the prob lems caused by those problems (called compensations) so improvement may not come as easily or as quickly as you’d like it to.

If you don’t understand and accept this truth you’re likely to remain very disap pointed in your lack of improvement and stuck at the same handicap for the rest of your golf career.

The Simple Tru-Putt The easiest way to determine whether or not you are habitually making an in-swing face-angle correction during your stroke is with the Tru-Putt (Figure 12.4.1). Position your putter square to the end of the Tru-Putt and make a stroke. If your putter returns to square at impact the way it was at address the Tru-Putt will slide straight across the floor along the line perpendicular to your putterface (your Aimline). If however your stroke comes into impact with a face-angle adjustment relative to the way you aligned it at address the Tru-Putt will tell you by rotating off the putterface and turning to one side or the other.

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

Extract from the book:

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

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 111 make this stroke in your own body rhythm following a perfect routine and ritual sequence with good touch and feel and play the correct amount of break then you’ve got it.

This pure-in-line-square putting stroke is natural works under pressure minimizes the critical nature of timing and hall position conforms 100 percent to the USGA Rules of Golf and is fundamentally simple to do. I highly recommend it!

CHAPTER 5 Five Nonphysical Building Blocks: Touch Feel Attitude Routine and Ritual

5.1 Controlling the Ball

The whole purpose of putting is to put the ball into the hole in as few strokes as possible. To accomplish this successfully you must consistently strike your puns with precision and accuracy starting them on the correct line and giving them the correct initial speed. If you can accomplish the initial conditions of proper line and speed the rest of your putting results are up to Mother Nature and the greens.

As you can see in the image to the left, the back remains straight while bending over to the ball. All of the bending is done at the hips. Bending at the waist and keeping a straight back will promote great ball flight and consistency. The relationship between the arms and chest has not changed.
