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?

At the 2001 club A.G.M. the members voted for a “full members” club. All the 6 day and lady golfers became full or more properly 61/2-day members. This entitles gentlemen to play at all times apart from Tuesday morning, and ladies to play at all times apart from Sunday morning.

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

Extract from the book:

Don’t be surprised if your first few practice sessions seem both physically and mentally taxing. You ‘ve probably never received so much feedback on your stroke before and your subconscious may not be accustomed to working this hard. But this is exactly what you want so keep it up. After a few sessions you’ll begin to feel relaxed and see real improvement. That’s when you’re ready to add a few more feedback devices to the mix.

By adding Elk’s Key (it should fit under the track without any adjustment) you optimize your shoulder flow-line learning (Figure 12.1.5). This is also a good time to start holding your follow-through position at the end of each stroke for five seconds (this habit will pay big benefits in later outdoor practice sessions).

The final addition to your Putting Track practice sessions is to work on making a pure-in-line-square down-the-Aimline stroke on breaking putts. Don’t do this right

274 Improve Your Stroke Mechanics away but after several sessions of good stroke-path results in the track and when it’s easy to hold your follow-through on-line for five seconds make one small change. After aiming the track at your target can put a small but visible piece of tape (any color as long as you can see it) directly behind the can then move the can six inches to the left. Now imagine you’re looking at a putt with six inches of break which requires seeing an Aimline that starts six inches outside the right edge of the cup. Don’t change anything but the location of the hole in your mind’s eye. Make your last look down the Aimline (at the tape not the can) then execute a perfect in-track stroke and hold your follow-through on the Aimline (between the rails without touching them). This is how you begin acclimating your stroke path to the Aimline for breaking putts. In the following session move the can a few inches to the right of the tape and practice a stroke for a left-to-right break of at least several inches. Go back to straight-down-the-line practice for straight putts in every third session.

Use the Elevated Aimline on the Green

After a few months your path should be getting well grooved and you will want to take some of your practice outdoors onto a green. Set up an Elevated Aimline (elastic string attached to two stakes running vertically nine inches above the actual Aim-line) for a straight putt and be sure to hold your finish after each attempt so you immediately see if your path finished inside on-line or outside your desired path (Figure 12.1.6). Then find a 6-inch breaking putt and aim your Elevated Aimline 6inches outside of the hole. See if you can keep your stroke under it just like you did on your indoor breaking putt practice. But be sure you aim the Elevated Aimline

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

Extract from the book:

Now imagine a minor modification to this putter a lightweight but much longer face (Figure 4.6.9A`’). With this change the putter would still swing perfectly in-line beneath the shoulders and there still is nothing to cause rotation or circular motion in the stroke. In Figure 4.6.9A’ we’ve added a lightweight but rigid connection from the grip to the putterface near its toe. Assuming this connection is truly lightweight and doesn’t change the putter’s balance the swing path still would not change still would not rotate and would naturally continue to swing in-line along the straight line path beneath the shoulders.

Finally having seen how this putter swings with both shafts now look what happens when the vertical part of the shaft is removed in Figure 4.6.9A”. By removing the original vertical shaft (which hung under the hands) and the back of the putterface we have turned this into a normal-looking putter which still swings in a pure-in-line path as before. This face (again assuming the putter was balanced perfectly) will not rotate open or closed and will not swing or curve around the body. The natural swinging motion of this putter will be purely in-line along a line exactly parallel to his shoulder line. In other words this putter path will track right down the Aimline the intended line of the putt.

4.7 A Pure-In-Line Stroke Keeps the Putterface Square

Section 4.6 should prove to you that a pure simple pendulum can swing in three different motions all of which can relate to a putting stroke. The pendulum of a putting stroke (assuming the golfer has a pendulum and doesn ‘t hit with his hands or wrists or move his body) is the pendulum formed between his suspension point (between his shoulders) and his hands (Figure 4.7.1). And it is this position of a golfer’s hands the angle of his pendulum relative to vertical that determines not only the natural swing path of his putterhead but also the behavior of the putterface angle relative to the Aimline. (Note: your elbows and forearms don’t have to be under your shoulders just your hands.)

As shown on the bottom in Figure 4.7.2 when the golfer’s hands (pendulum

(A) = no rotation; Inclined (B) and (C) = screen-door rotations.

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 79 balls in illustration) are outside his shoulders the screen-door stroke produces both a curved path around the golfer’s body and significant putterface angle rotation relative to the Aimline. This is where the in-line stroke shines as shown in the top figure: When the golfer’s hands (pendulum balls) are vertically under his shoulders his stroke path is not only naturally in-line with his Aimline his putter-face also stays square to the Aimline at all times. As you will see in section 4.8 this is an incredible advantage because the face angle is very influential in determining what line the ball starts rolling on in putting.

Focus on using your spine as your axis now. Turn both shoulders and sides directly around your spine. Keep your left arm locked, and your left wrist locked. Although difficult to see from this camera-angle, the triangle is still perfectly in tact.
