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:

Knowing that you should always putt with a stable stroke motion and actually doing it are two very different things. I want to show you how to learn to practice making stable swings so stability will become a habit and stay with you when you go to the course. To accomplish this I first want you to learn three stable “reference” strokes (these will become your 6-inch 12-inch and 18-inch reference back-swing strokes). Don’t worry about what these strokes do how they work or what they are for. Just learn to make them and I’ll explain them later. You need some thin strips of foam rubber that will fit across the width of your Putting Track and some tape to attach the foam strips temporarily to the track. Don’t use a ball.

Step 1. Stick two pieces of foam rubber across the side rails of the track one each at 12 inches behind and 14 inches ahead of the ball spot (Figure 12.2.2). Step 2. Place a dot sticker in the track between the black diamonds on the rails where the ball would normally be.

Step 3. With your metronome beeping at your natural body rhythm address the dot as if it were a hall. Now execute your ritual and stroke to the beat just as if you were putting. Make sure you touch the putter shaft to each piece of foam back then through on a beat.

Step 4. Hold your finish (shaft against forward foam) for five beats.

That completes one stable putting stroke (with a 12-inch backswing and a 14inch follow-through) about what you would make for a 10-foot putt on the course. Your putter would have been stable at the point of contact with the ball and would have rolled a putt at about the optimum 17-inches-past speed for the average 10-footer. If you set up properly to the track your shoulder flow-line was

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

Extract from the book:

You can practice putting this way for years and as long as you putt on the course exactly the way you do in practice – relaxed and calm – things will be reasonably okay. But wait until you get really excited. When your heart begins to beat faster because a putt really matters your body naturally produces adrenaline which makes all of your muscles stronger. Then all your practice goes out the window because the muscles that control your putting power are now stronger than they ever were on the putting green. Even if your stroke feels the way it did in practice the adrenaline-induced extra power will cause it to provide the wrong amount of energy to your putts and produce bad results on the course.

You Can’t Avoid Adrenaline Everybody gets to experience excitement and adrenaline in golf. It’s part of why we love the game and if you want to become a better player you must learn to deal with it. You must learn to play well when adrenaline is in your system. This is easy in the power game when you want to hit the ball as far you can with whatever club is in your hands. Adrenaline in your system helps you to do this. But putting is altogether different. You can’t take one less club on the green when you’re pumped up. And you certainly don ‘t want to putt the ball as far as you can.

Luckily there is a simple way to control adrenaline when putting. Learn to putt

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 69 in such a way that the adrenaline-affected muscles of your fingers hands and wrists don’t control how far or fast your putts roll. You’ll learn about that in section 13.5.

Forearm Rotation

Just about every shot in golf except putting requires rotation of the forearms through the impact zone. But apply that same rotation to your putting stroke and you’ll produce double trouble. First your putterface will rotate from open to closed so the likelihood that it is square at the moment of impact becomes very small. Second forearm rotation supplies unwanted and unnecessary power and usually a lot of it.

But there’s yet another problem with forearm rotation: it feels natural. Even Tour professionals don’t realize they’re doing it and when I tell them to stop they usually say “What do you mean I’m not rotating my arms! ” But of course they are. And like the pros most golfers don’ t mean to do it and if you ask them don’t think they are. But they are and you probably are too. Which is too bad because forearm rotation makes putting more difficult more inconsistent and less effective.

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.
