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:

Modern research has proven that the physical motion of putting is not difficult to do; in fact it is the simplest action in golf. If you can hit the ball at all with a driver you have more than enough coordination and talent to be a very good putter. But putting is difficult to learn to do. Good putting involves doing many

You Putt As You Prepare Yourself to Putt

In golf as in life you become what you see yourself becoming if you prepare yourself to become that way. For reasons I don’t understand golfers expect golf to be easier than it is. (Maybe they want golf to be easier than it is which I do understand.) Golfers think they can buy a better game or if they take one lesson and learn how to swing a club the game will become easy.

They expect that after they learn how to hit a shot and hit it once they should be able to do it perfectly every time for the rest of their careers. I’m sorry but that’s not golf.

Steve Elkington (Figure 15.6.1) is one of the best players I’ve ever worked with. He knows how to hit all the shots and that includes putting. But as talented as he is athletically he still practices his putting stroke and he still hits all the other shots four to six hours a day six days a week and he plays 18 holes almost every day.

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

Extract from the book:

If you don ‘t learn to aim correctly then no one (myself and my Scoring Game Schools included) will ever be able to teach you a good putting stroke. A good putting stroke with bad aim will miss every time and your subconscious will never let you learn a stroke that it knows will miss every time. Instead you ‘ll begin compensating. However once you learn to aim accurately along the Aimline you choose your putting instincts will lead you to make better less compensating strokes and that leads to holing more putts.

4.5 Power Source

Your power source is the part of your body that supplies the power to control and move the putter through the impact zone of your stroke. The muscles you use to control your putter determine your putting power source. The three most common power sources used in putting are: (1) the small muscles of the fingers hands wrists and forearms; (2) the arms and shoulders; and (3) body motion.

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

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.
