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:

Finding your putter’s true sweetspot is one of the easiest chores in golf. The mistake to avoid is letting it hang vertically while you are doing it (Figure 12.3.1). You must hold the grip in your fingers so the shaft is angled to the ground the same way it is when you putt with it. This is key because it keeps the putter properly balanced to the way you actually use it. Then tap-tap-tap across the face with a hard metal object such as a car key. When tapping away from the sweetspot the putterhead will wobble and you’ll feel the vibrations in your fingers. There will be only one spot along the horizontal axis of the putterface that will produce zero wobble and the vibrations are minimized. That is your putter’s sweetspot.

Mark Your Putter

Once you’ve found the proper sweetspot mark it along the top line of your putter with a permanent-ink marker then tap-tap again to confirm your findings. When you are confident of the location mark it permanently by filing in a small groove (a punch mark also will do) which you can fill with paint. This will give you a permanent identification of where to address and hit your putts.

If your putter already has a mark but you find it’s in the wrong place you can still indicate the proper sweetspot in a visually pleasing way. Again tap-tap until you find the true sweetspot and mark it with a washable-ink pen. (Be sure to tap-tap one last time to verify that you have it marked right.) Measure the distance from the true sweetspot to the manufacturer’s mark then make a second mark the same distance from the sweetspot but in the other direction. Once you file a groove or other permanent mark on this new spot on the putter’s top line you’ll have two marks with the sweetspot centered precisely between them.

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

Extract from the book:

So does any golfer want to move the putter or aim the putterface in any direction other than the desired starting line of the putt at the moment of impact? Of course not! Yet some golfers think they can achieve the perfect path through impact by using a screen-door stroke which rotates around their bodies. They obviously don’t realize that the timing of impact (and ball position) must be perfect every time if they hope to have a chance of holing any putts. And they don’t realize that the in-line-square stroke motion minimizes the effects of inconsistencies in timing and ball position.

One Negative

I’m not trying to sell you an in-line putting stroke. If this pils stroke seems too si mple and you want to make putting more difficult that’s okay by me. I’m just trying to inform you that a pure-in-line stroke is the easiest and best way to putt. But it’s not a panacea and there is one potential drawback to putting with this stroke (it’s the same drawback as for the screen-door stroke too).

To see this drawback look at how Perfy misses a simple three-foot putt with

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 85 his perfect in-line-square stroke (Figure 4.7.9). The problem is obvious: If you don’t align your shoulders parallel to the desired starting line for the putt even the perfect stroke path and a square putter blade won’t start the ball rolling on the right line.

So if you are going to take my advice and develop an in-line-square stroke you must be absolutely sure that as you learn this stroke you also learn to address the ball with your shoulders square (parallel-left) to your putting line. And as you will learn in Chapter 11 setting up parallel-left has other benefits as well.
