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 Simple Tru-Putt The easiest way to determine whether or not you are habitually making an in-swing face-angle correction during your stroke is with the Tru-Putt (Figure 12.4.1). Position your putter square to the end of the Tru-Putt and make a stroke. If your putter returns to square at impact the way it was at address the Tru-Putt will slide straight across the floor along the line perpendicular to your putterface (your Aimline). If however your stroke comes into impact with a face-angle adjustment relative to the way you aligned it at address the Tru-Putt will tell you by rotating off the putterface and turning to one side or the other.

Because both the ends of the Tru-Putt and your putterface arc flat there’s little room for error at contact. If your putter is closed at impact Tru-Putt spins away with a clockwise rotation; the more the face is closed the quicker the rotation. An open face produces counterclockwise rotation. My recommendation is that you practice with the Tru-Putt between three and five minutes twice a week making your 6- 12- and 18-inch reference backswing strokes until you start producing straight-sliding rather than rotating Tru-Putt motions. Finish each session by stroking a few really long putts (imagine you’re standing over a 70-footer) and a few very short ones (imagine 3-footers). Always leave enough room for the Tru-Putt to slide so you get good feedback on your face-angle performance. This drill

So periodically intersperse your Tru-Putt sessions with some work with the Putting Track and/or Elk’s Key to check on your stroke path your eye and shoulder alignments and with the LazrAimer to check your aim.

Putter Rails

Another good way to groove a noncompensating stroke with a good face angle at impact is to drill indoors with Putter Rails in the Putting Track (Figure 12.4.2). But don’t do this until you’re comfortable putting in the Putting Track without the rails. Start with the sides of the track spread far enough so you hit them no more than about half the time then decrease the spacing as you improve (the spacing can be adjusted by placing the legs inside or outside the side rails adding or subtracting washers or by using a different-length spacer bar between the sides).

The Putter Rails attach to the putterface with double-sided tape. Stroke 50 putts per night using all the same guidelines for careful practice mentioned in section 12.1 for improving your stroke path (metronome beeping at your body rhythm target can aligned precisely with the Putting Track Elk’s Key positioned

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

Extract from the book:

So you can make a large error in your stroke path and see only a small error in the starting line of your putt. Another way to think of it is this: On a dead-straight five-foot putt your path could travel along a line aimed 13 inches left of the hole center and the ball would still hit the left edge (Figure 4.6.2) assuming you hit the sweetspot and everything else about your stroke was perfect.

As you will see in section 4.8 putterface angle has more effect on the line a pull starts on than does the putter path. But golfers practice putter path because

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 73 it’s easier for them to see their friends (from whom they take advice) can see it and they don’t know what else to practice. I guess it’s not too hard to understand why their putting doesn’t improve.

The Screen Door

For many years Harvey Penick one the game’s greatest teachers taught that the putter should swing open on the backswing and swing closed on the follow-through like a screen door as it moved around a player ‘s body (Figure 4.6.3). He believed that the natural stroke path should move to the inside on the backswing (around a motionless body) and back to the inside on the follow-through. He taught many golfers to become great players including my good friends Tom Kite and Ben Crenshaw and his screen-door concept has been the generally accepted way to putt throughout most of the 50 years I’ve been playing this game.

It was how I wanted to putt back when I thought I had a chance to have a playing career. However despite my tremendous admiration for Mr. Penick and his teaching accomplishments (which are legendary) and my own efforts to copy his opening and closing “screen-door” method my more recent research has proven that while this stroke can be effective the screen door is neither the best nor the simplest way to swing a putter.
