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:

278 Improve Your Stroke Mechanics parallel to your Aimline your stroke was in perfect rhythm you achieved stability without any hit or muscle power (because your stroke moved in sync with your natural rhythm) and you just saw and felt a reference 12-inch backswing putting stroke worth memorizing.

Do It Again Sam

Now repeat this entire sequence 19 more times the last 5 with your eyes shut. That’s the entire stability drill for the 12-inch backswing stroke and it should take less than five minutes. 1)o it again a few days later except this time with the foam taped six inches behind the ball spot and seven inches ahead; this is the six-inch backswing stability drill which rolls the ball about the perfect speed for a two-foot putt on most greens. The third reference stroke drill is for a 25-footer and for this the foam should he placed at 18 inches behind the ball spot and 21 inches ahead.

These three stable reference strokes are typical of strokes you need on the course in every round. But by practicing with no ball no pressure on results and no distractions you can focus solely on rhythm and feel. Doing these drills over a period of time (say a few nights a week for six months) will embed the feel for stable (properly accelerating) strokes into your subconscious and you’ll begin using and feeling them on the course out of habit (an occasional repeat of these drills over the years will help keep bad habits away). Of course you will use the 12-inch backswing stroke on longer and shorter putts because green speeds vary and the putts may be running up- or downhill. But the rhythm and stability will be there. You’ll feel them sense them and be able to call up these strokes from your subconscious simply by closing your eyes and searching for that feel as you are creating your preview stroke.

Everybody can benefit from the stability drills but they are especially helpful to golfers who make good mechanical strokes yet decelerate into impact. If you’re not stable (accelerating) through impact every error you make is maximized in your results. Simply by making a tiny change from your present putting rhythm you may be able to change your unstable stroke to a stable one. And if you do your results will improve significantly even dramatically in pressure situations.

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

Extract from the book:

I mentioned briefly that you can miss the sweetspot both horizontally and vertically. So a word about hitting putts high or low on the face. Most golfers habitually make contact at roughly the same height on their putterface. As long as this height is about four-tenths of an inch above the sole where most putters are designed to be hit this is good.

But some golfers try to hit up on their putts to produce overspin or topspin and in doing so usually contact the ball very low on the putterface near its bottom. This is bad because it causes hand and muscle control of the putter (subjecting you to the effects of adrenaline) and can even result in some putters rotating over the ball if hit hard enough (Figure 4.9.3). Such rotation can actually impart more backspin on a ball than the hitting-up motion removes. (1 prefer backweighted-low putter designs to eliminate this problem.) Hitting up on the ball also raises the effective putter loft which can launch a ball up off the green and produce a bouncing and therefore inconsistent putt.

Having said this there is one situation in which I recommend either hitting up on your putts or using a more-lofted-than-normal putter. When you find yourself putting on soft and severely bumpy greens you might want to try launching your short puns slightly upward to avoid the footprints that would send them squirting left or right. True this is not a great stroke but on truly bad surfaces it may be the least had of your options.

Spinning Puffs

Forget here and now the idea of imparting spin as a way to control your putts. Research has shown that the friction of the green removes all spin from rolling halls

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 93 within about the first 20 percent of their roll. Despite this golfers think that Ben Crenshaw became a good putter by learning to put overspin on his putts and that Bobby Locke put “hook spin” on his putts which made them dive into the hole. Neither of these descriptions is true but amateur golfers believe them because they sound reasonable and give them something new to try in their own putting. (They also give amateurs an excuse for not putting better. Trust me: Most amateurs don’t need any more excuses.)

Still many golfers and even some teaching professionals extol the benefits of “releasing” the putter through impact rotating the face from open to closed to impart hook spin or overspin. Again all reasonably well-stroked putts can be shown to be rolling without any spin whatsoever when they reach the hole. So trying to release the putter makes no sense unless it encourages you to follow through in your stroke and eliminates deceleration and instability. However even in this case releasing the putter will produce more face rotation and give you more inconsistency in directional control due to increased timing problems.

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.
