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:

Are You Limited to One Putter?

I am frequently asked if I think it is smart and/or acceptable to carry more than one putter at a time. My answer is always the same: “Only if you will putt better and score lower by doing so.”

In all honesty I’d carry five putters if I thought they would help my putting and lower my scores. 1 think carrying 11 clubs for the power game (about 35 percent of your shots) two clubs for the short game (about 20 percent of your shots) and one club for the putting game (43 percent of your shots) is a pretty poor distribution.

Shouldn’t you choose the tools that will help you shoot the lowest scores?

If you putt better with a long putter on short putts then you definitely should carry one for handling short putts (remember short putts – under 6 feet – com prise one-half of all putts). If at the same time you lag your long putts closer to the hole with a short putter then carry one of those too. The USGA is very fair in this regard: They say you can’t carry more than 14 clubs but they don’t specify which 14 they must be. So if for some bizarre reason you found you could make more 10- to 15-foot putts with a six-inch-long putter then I would recommend you carry one of those as well. 1 kid you not. If you want to carry two putters more power to you. Quite a few students leave our Scoring Game Schools carrying two putters and four wedges and play the best golf of their lives (Figure 11.6.6).

But be sure to test for distance efficiency and then commit to a particular putter for putts of a particular length before you play. You don’t want to be deciding on the course which putter to use.

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

Extract from the book:

And you’d better know how much gas you need before starting the trip because there are no filling stations (putting stroke adjustments) along the way (after you hit the ball).

Five Nonphysical Building Blocks: Touch Feel Attitude Routine and Ritual 113

Once you know how much gas you need then you have to figure out how hard to step on the gas pedal and when to step on the brakes as you drive on your Thanksgiving trip (something you figure out after you are into the trip) to negotiate the stops and turns in the road along the way. This “knowing how to drive” is analogous to knowing how to feel the proper stroke in putting where you must know in your mind’s eye the required size of the swing (or hardness of the hit) as well as how it will look and feel to impart the power which will provide the proper energy and speed of roll required. So touch is knowing how long the trip is and how much power it will require and feel is knowing how to apply the power (how to drive) to get you there.

Of course good touch and feel also require a proper read of the green knowing what will happen to your putt as it rolls. Think of green-reading as having a good road map for your journey. A good map or good directions can make the trip easy but a bad map with poor directions can turn the simplest trip into a nightmare.

So you need a map enough gas and the knowledge of how hard to step on the gas pedal along the way. You need all these things in concert to have a good trip. And you need good feel touch and green-reading skills also working together to putt well. Leave one out or do one poorly and it will he the same as losing your way on your Thanksgiving trip. Feel touch and green-reading are separate skills essentially different in nature yet each needs to be developed to provide the best result. And in case I ‘ve confused you that result is to roll the ball into the hole.

5.2 Touch and Feel Are in the Mind’s Eye

The skill bases for your touch and feel (green-reading will be discussed in Chapter 7) are intermingled in your mind. They are also intermingled in that they have a combined effect on putting results. But each is a separate skill which can be learned and developed over time.

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

At this point the right wrist is completely on top of the left wrist. Your hands are “through the ball”. You have continued to rotate around your spine, and you have tried to stop the left elbow on the imaginary line. This is the primary action for amateur golfer to increase power, while reducing slice.
