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:

I mprove Your Stroke Mechanics 283 solid contact move to the next-smaller clip which should reduce your solid contacts back to about 50 percent.

Itmay sound strange to hear me say this but don’t overdo this drill. One session every other day 30 solid putts per session is perfect. On the days between clip sessions practice with your Putting Track to keep grooving your pure-in-line stroke path. This will prevent your subconscious from creating solid contact with the clips by making an unacceptable correction to your stroke path (and messing up your putting on the course as alluded to earlier).

When practicing with Teacher Putting Clips (or doing any of the learning-aid drills in this book) keep a rational perspective on the point of your practice. Don ‘t get discouraged when you prong five consecutive putts (which everyone does sometimes) and don’t try to force or guide your puller to make solid contact. Always try to make good putting strokes in your natural body rhythm. You are trying to develop subconscious control of a solid-contact stroke that won’t require thinking on the golf course. What you should think about is getting into a good setup with a perfect shoulder flow line position standing a perfect distance from the ball with perfect alignment to your Aimline (as shown by Elk’s Key). Once in this start ing position don’t think your way through the putting stroke just let it swing back and through to the beat of your metronome then hold your finish squarely down the Aimline for five counts. The rest will come with time and practice.

The Final Groove Drill

Several months down the road when you are making 80 percent solid contact using the pro-size ‘leacher Putting Clip you will have to make a choice about your next step. You can either move to the super-pro clip or begin using the pro clip in side the Putting Track (Figure 12.3.7). Both will help you groove a Tour-quality i mpact pattern.

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

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 101

I say affect your brain because your eyes process information and feed it to your brain at all times. If you perceive that you need to push your putt out to the right because your eye flow-line is aimed too far left then your brain will make your body do it. When you are trying to perceive distance your eye-line should he horizontal in the binocular position (the way we usually look at things with our head up) to enhance depth perception (left side of Figure 4.10.H). However when you are looking along your Aimline to perceive the flow motion of your putter and ball along it your eye-line should he parallel-left (Figure 4.10.11 right).

As for your hip knee and feet flow-lines there is no reason I know of to have them aligned in any direction other than the intended flow direction of your putts. Some golfers tell me they see the line better when they stand open to their putts but when I test how well they are seeing the line it is usually pretty poorly. Look at Figure 4.10.12 and decide for yourself: Which setup do you think will produce better and more consistent putter flow down the Aimline?

The Stance

I am a strong believer in taking a narrow stance when chipping or pitching onto the green because that encourages golfers to use their lower bodies to maintain the rhythm of their swings.

And those arc the same reasons I strongly discourage a narrow stance for putting. A narrow stance makes it too easy for the golfer to move and rotate the lower body. Furthermore a narrow stance isn’t stable enough to resist being pushed around in the wind.

To establish a stable base for your stroke take a stance width that is at least as wide as your shoulders (Figure 4.10.13) as measured from the centerline of your

Notice that the right elbow becomes locked now as the right arm continues to swing. As you can see the right wrist has started to roll on top of the left wrist. The left elbow is now closer to the body, and is able to bend. The left elbow cannot be completely stopped at the imaginary line, but just a hesitation is enough to let your hands swing through the ball. Notice that the triangle is still present.
