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?

Green-Reading the 15th Building Block 149

Now here’s a final mind-blowing thought: Almost every putt any golfer makes is the result of this series of mistakes. If there’s any break at all (and I’ve already told you that almost every putt breaks at least a little hit) and if it ‘ s more than a tap-in then no matter what your intentions or how much time you spend sizing it up the putt that goes in is not a conscious result but a subconscious one. I’m not saying it’s lucky but the fact that a putt went in the hole is as much the result of forces you don’t recognize as those you do.

Let’s go through the steps again. When golfers read a putt they under-read its break. When they address a putt they subconsciously add more break to the read. When making the stroke they add still more break subconsciously making compensations that pull left-to-right putts and push right-to-left putts (for right-handed golfers) so the ball begins rolling on a line that almost gets it started on a line headed toward the true break. Now the ball is rolling and if they get lucky and it hits a footprint or two or if it ‘s stroked a little too hard (reducing the amount the ball actually breaks) there is a chance that the putt will find the hole.

This Makes Big-Breakers Tough to Make

This domino effect of mistakes has many consequences. One of the most prevalent is the serious problem many golfers have putting on very sloping and undulating greens. As the amount of true break increases the amount of “net underread” (the 10 percent of the true break that is never compensated for; see Figure 7.4.2) becomes so large that the only chance of a putt finding the hole comes from hit ting it much too hard (because a footprint providing a slight nudge from the lumpy donut is no longer enough to knock it in). After a while the subconscious thinks that it needs to hit all big-breaking putts too hard and so begins doing it all the time. This is why golfers have so many three-putts on undulating greens especially on downhill putts when rolling the ball just a little too fast can have disastrous results.

Five Nonphysical Building Blocks: Touch Feel Attitude Routine and Ritual 115

5.3 Realities of Touch and Feel

Adrenaline Effects

Since touch and feel both reside in the brain and the brain travels with a golfer’s body it would be logical to assume that both touch and feel would transfer easily from the practice green to the course. Sorry but that is not the case. In fact transferring them to the course is often one of the most difficult aspects of the game for golfers at all skill levels (this is true for the short game as well as putting and as you ‘ll see for the same reason). When a golfer feels excited anxious scared or is under any kind of pressure his heart beats faster and his body produces adrenaline which causes the muscles to get stronger. This can happen on the first tee over a two-foot putt to win the Saturday nassau or on the final hole of the U.S. Open. In all these situations pressure means stronger muscles. And stronger muscles are certain to affect your putting results if it is your muscles that are determining how far and fast your putts roll.

What happens when you practice putting? The heart doesn ‘t beat faster you are not excited and adrenaline isn ‘t produced. No adrenaline because no matter how hard you practice or how much you concentrate on the practice green by it’s very nature practice is repetitive and boring. Deep inside you know that the results don’t matter. You can pretend that this five-footer is to win The Masters but you can ‘t fool your subconscious. If you want to put a little pressure and excitement into your practice sessions either compete with a friend for more money than you can afford to lose or when practicing alone tell yourself (and then live by it) that you can’t quit until you achieve some specific goal such as holing 10 three-footers in a row. We call this “a closer ” and I highly recommend it. (More about it in Chapter 13.)

So if you can’t practice with pressure how do you make practice help your putting on the golf course when it really counts? You could try to avoid pressure on the course but that’s not going to happen. The only way to putt well under pressure is to develop a stroke in practice that works both in practice and on the course when the pressure is on and your muscles are strong. I ‘m not saying you should develop a “pressure stroke ” one that’s different from the stroke you normally practice and use. What I am saying is that you should be smart enough to use your practice time to develop a normal stroke that is the same as your pressure stroke. This is a stroke that doesn’t depend on the strength of your muscles or the speed of your heartbeat. It is a stroke that will work just as well under pressure as in practice. As you’ll see below it’s called a dead-hands stroke.

This is a different view of the complete follow through. Your forearms are crossed, and that is the sign that you have completed the follow-through correctly Keep your head perfectly still during the entire swing This is the last crucial step that you must master. It’s by far the easiest step, but ironically it will produce the most results. The biggest problem is that you don’t always know when you are moving your head. You may find that swinging easier helps keep the head still, but other than that it is just something that you will have to really concentrate on.
