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?

Blackmoor Golf Club

Located at the western end of the belt of glorious golfing country which covers the Hampshire, Berkshire and Surrey borders, the Golf Club lies in a picturesque stretch of the dark purple heather from which Blackmoor takes its name. Groves of birch and fir abound, while the fine sandy soil, firm natural turf and the heather rough virtually guarantee the quality of the golf played throughout the year.

Dave Pelz’s Putting Bible – golf’s least understood skill.

Extract from the book:

Since the margin of error in putting is so small precise alignment is crucial which means it’s something you need to practice over and over. The best way to learn to aim is with a LazrAimer periodically practicing with it to train your brain what perfect alignment looks like. The Putting Track can teach you to aim if you use it long enough (and always set it up properly). If you don’t want to invest the money and time on either of these devices at least mark your balls with their Balance-lines and Face-lines and learn to use those lines to help you aim.

We’ve seen many students benefit from these improvements and odds are that you too will see your putting improve as you learn to aim better. But you definitely want to test these aiming aids on the practice green before you commit to them on the golf course. It takes a little more time to line up your Balance-line with your Aimline especially the first few times you give it a try so practice doing it on the practice putting green to keep your play timely on the course.

Establish Your Practice Framework 269

Don ‘t Forget about Your Eye Position

Finally whenever you work on your aim/alignment don’t forget about keeping your eyes vertically over the Aimline. No matter how well you learn to aim on the LazrAimer or with your Balance and Face-lines if you position your eyes differently for every putt you have no chance of developing consistent alignment. Once again don’t misinterpret what I mean by “eyes above the Aimline”: ‘ibis does not mean exactly over the ball; one or both eyes can be behind the ball as long as they are both still vertically above the Aimline.

In the old days to check your eye position you could either drop a ball from beneath your eye line or have a friend stand behind you and say when a plumb line hanging from a point vertically below your eyes (usually about the tip of your nose – Figure 11.7.8) touched the Aimline. Now however since you know how to ensure your eye line is positioned vertically above your Aimline by measuring your toe-line-to-ball distance (see section 11.5) periodically check that distance during all your subsequent practice sessions. And remember if you don’t address the ball the same way every time and use the same putter from the same posture every time your subconscious can’t learn to repeat let alone submit to subconscious control the habits of good putting.

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

Extract from the book:

Less important to the golfer’s overall aim than reaction aiming position aiming is a golfer’s tendency to modify his or her reaction aim based on the position of the eyes relative to the Aimline . There are valid reasons for this phenomenon.

Aimline then he is sure to misalign his putter (and likely miss the putt) because now his view has changed to alignment angle B. The mind can ‘t keep everything properly aimed if it has to deal with constantly changing views of alignment.

Any golfer whose eyes are not consistently vertically above his Aimline will have to change his view of alignment due to the changing angles he sees for putts of different lengths. The result is inconsistent alignment. The only way to align the putterface properly time after time is by positioning both eyes exactly vertically above the Aimline so the alignment angle is always zero degrees for all putts re gardless of length (Figure 4.4.3 C and D).

Detailed procedures for learning how to aim properly will be discussed in sec tion 12.6 where I’ll show you how to improve and even perfect your ability to aim. But for now realize that aim is an essential fundamental of putting a learned skill you have probably learned incorrectly (without knowing it) based on the results of past putting strokes and the positioning of your eyes (which you should keep vertically above the Aimline Figure 4.4.4).

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 67

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.

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

Now just line everything up with that item and fire away. This method won’t cure all of your alignment problems, but it does give you a simple way to assure that you are on the right path. Many students have the habit of lining up way left or way right of the target. When the ball goes where they are “aiming”, they think they have a problem. If your ball consistently goes left or right of target, but flies straight, then your problem is your alignment. Try this simple method before every shot on the course and you’ll definitely drop a few strokes.
