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:

Golfers find all of this hard to believe. (I don’t blame you. I also found it hard to believe until 1 proved it scientifically over and over.) Golfers think that if they read a five-inch break and then make the putt the five-inch break is justified. They say ” See I played five inches and it was perfect.”They don’t recognize – and they don’t want to recognize – that although they read five inches of break they set up 12 inches to the left of the hole pulled the ball another four inches to the left and the ball broke 16 inches into the cup.

In my Scoring Game Schools having proven to our students that they are significantly under-reading we measure the true break accurately by rolling putts at the optimum putting speed with a True Roller (Figure 7.5.1). With the True Roller evidence they can see and begin to understand how much true break there is. Then we mark the true-break Aimline and ask the students to actually putt along that line and try to make the putt. What happens? They usually miss high.

The read was perfect; we marked the correct Aimline. How could the students miss high? Blame the subconscious. The player’s subconscious doesn’t trust this new read so it sticks with its habit of pulling or pushing to a spot higher than whatever the player thinks is the proper line. Now our students having missed several putts on the high side say “Sec? I knew that was too much break.” They revert to their old green-reading ways continue to under-read the break and continue to miss 90 percent of their pulls below the hole.

My Frustration

Ever since writing the article “The Amazing Truth About Putting” in GOLF MAGAZINE I implore my students on the putting green “Please pay attention. You need to see how much your putts are breaking. Would you please focus on how your putts break?” But I couldn’t give them a way to see the true break other than to tell them it was there. I pleaded with them to play more break but it was a battle and one I usually lost. They didn’t “see” the true break when they looked (even when the location of the true-break Aimline was shown to them on the green) and they couldn’t stop making compensations for their under-reading. So despite my best efforts too many students were leaving my schools with their green-reading skills about the same as when they arrived – not reading enough break. This has been one of my biggest frustrations as a teacher which we are now ready to eliminate. Please read on!

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

Extract from the book:

Fingers Hands and Wrists

Most golfers control their putting with the small muscles of their hands wrists and forearms. These are the muscles that control most of the things we do in life – hitting things twisting things moving things – so using our hands and forearms in golf is instinctive and therefore feels natural to us. But instinct and natu

68 The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics ralness don’ t necessarily mean correct. And in fact trying to find a way to putt that is both initially comfortable and natural usually leads to disaster.

Supplying the power which determines how fast and how far your putts will roll from the muscles of your wrists hands and fingers (Figure 4.5.1) is bad. Wrist motion (hinging) causes putterface angle variations and hand and wrist muscles lend to tighten up and not work well under even slight pressure. But powering your putts with these muscles also brings an added complication: It’s not had all the time.

You can practice putting this way for years and as long as you putt on the course exactly the way you do in practice – relaxed and calm – things will be reasonably okay. But wait until you get really excited. When your heart begins to beat faster because a putt really matters your body naturally produces adrenaline which makes all of your muscles stronger. Then all your practice goes out the window because the muscles that control your putting power are now stronger than they ever were on the putting green. Even if your stroke feels the way it did in practice the adrenaline-induced extra power will cause it to provide the wrong amount of energy to your putts and produce bad results on the course.

You Can’t Avoid Adrenaline Everybody gets to experience excitement and adrenaline in golf. It’s part of why we love the game and if you want to become a better player you must learn to deal with it. You must learn to play well when adrenaline is in your system. This is easy in the power game when you want to hit the ball as far you can with whatever club is in your hands. Adrenaline in your system helps you to do this. But putting is altogether different. You can’t take one less club on the green when you’re pumped up. And you certainly don ‘t want to putt the ball as far as you can.

Luckily there is a simple way to control adrenaline when putting. Learn to putt

The “Simple Golf” Swing: “Golf for the Rest of Us”

Extract from the book:

Golf Tuition Bedfordshire Golf Club

The completed grip with both “V” shapes pointed toward the right shoulder. Note the “V” shapes are parallel with each other.Hopefully, you already have a grip that closely resembles this one. There are some slight variations, but this grip is standard for the most part. It should produce the best results. However, if you have a different grip than this, and you are more comfortable using it, you may continue using it. A grip is hard to change, and this one may feel really uncomfortable to you; however, benefits will come if you embrace this new grip. The “Simple Golf Swing” will most likely provide to you the desired results, even if you use your current grip. However, if you are still having problems when you get through the system, please incorporate the above grip method into your swing.
