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:

The difficulty of the game I refer to is that all golfers are human and occasionally mis-hit putts. When this happens on short breaking putts there is always a preferred side of the putterface (the uphill side of the putter from the sweetspot)

354 Face Your Special Problems where it is okay for you to mis-hit a little bit and still hole the putt. Contact the ball on the downhill side however and your putt has no chance at all.

To help you understand this first let me show you what normally happens on right-to-left-breaking putts assuming you putt left-handed as shown in the three examples of Figure 14.6.1:

1) heel; 2) sweetspot; or 3) toe. All three are shown here with their common results for left-handed putters or a right-to-left breaking putt.

This mis-hit phenomenon goes in the opposite direction for left-to-right putts for lefties as shown in Figure 14.6.2:

1. For a mis-hit on the toe (uphill side of the putter) the two effects of the mis-hit go in opposite directions and tend to cancel each other out. The putt stars

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

Extract from the book:

Everyone Can Swing On-Line and Square

Away from physics and hack to golf. As long as your putting triangle (Figure 4.7.7) remains intact so the elbow and wrist angles don’t change during the stroke and your forearms don’t rotate there is a position of your hands somewhere under your shoulders that will produce a pure-in-line-square stroke. This stroke is perfectly natural with no involvement of the muscles of your hands wrists or forearms. This lack of hand action is what we call a “dead-hands” stroke. (Note: The perfect vertical pendulum hand position can be influenced by the musculature of your shoulders and arms. Golfers with either very muscular or slender arms may find the spot isn’t precisely under their shoulders – but pretty close – due to the weight balance of the arms hands and putter.)

You’ve now had it proven that it is not only possible but also natural to swing your putter in a pure straight-line motion without any hand or forearm manipulations. And it’s equally possible and natural to swing your putter around or away from your body. Which stroke do you think lets you putt best? To me it’s obvious that the pure-in-line-square (pils) stroke is the simplest and best way to putt.

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 83

It’s Natural

Many other accuracy-oriented sports have embraced the pure-in-line stroke motion over a screen-door path including basketball bowling croquet and shooting pool (Figure 4.7.8). In all of these skills you could hit or release the ball or object from either a straight in-line or curved (around the body) path. It should come as no surprise that the in-line path is chosen in every case because the curved path demands perfect timing of the release to achieve the desired result.

Look at the two motions for bowling: Both are perfect pendulums formed by the arm swinging from the shoulder. On the top the arm swings along the desired starting line of the ball so whether it is released a little early a little late or at the perfect time it always starts in the proper direction. In the lower figure the arm is swung out and around the body so only a perfectly timed release will start the ball rolling in the desired direction. The same comparison for shot accuracy is valid in croquet basketball pool and putting.
