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:

Improve Your Stroke Mechanics 273 day if you want until 80 percent of your strokes are quiet. Then it’s time to tighten the tolerance to the half-noise half-quiet level again.

Before you start each Putting Track session set your metronome to your body-rhythm tempo and prepare yourself to optimize your address posture and flowline positions as best you can. Assume your practice swing stance just outside the track (like your practice stance four inches left of your real putts on the green) and make a preview stroke of the putt you are going to practice. Then move into your setup in the track (use tape to mark your perfect toe-to-ball distance) and execute your ritual before every putt. If you do all this you’re not only improving your stroke path you’re committing your setup ritual and rhythm as well as your stroke path to subconscious control (and habit) at the same time.

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.

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

Extract from the book:

The alignment of your eyes hips knees and feet flow-lines is important to your putting only in as much as they affect your brain or the orientation of your shoulder and forearm flow-lines. The problem is they can and do affect them for some golfers.

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 101

I say affect your brain because your eyes process information and feed it to your brain at all times. If you perceive that you need to push your putt out to the right because your eye flow-line is aimed too far left then your brain will make your body do it. When you are trying to perceive distance your eye-line should he horizontal in the binocular position (the way we usually look at things with our head up) to enhance depth perception (left side of Figure 4.10.H). However when you are looking along your Aimline to perceive the flow motion of your putter and ball along it your eye-line should he parallel-left (Figure 4.10.11 right).

As for your hip knee and feet flow-lines there is no reason I know of to have them aligned in any direction other than the intended flow direction of your putts. Some golfers tell me they see the line better when they stand open to their putts but when I test how well they are seeing the line it is usually pretty poorly. Look at Figure 4.10.12 and decide for yourself: Which setup do you think will produce better and more consistent putter flow down the Aimline?

The Stance

I am a strong believer in taking a narrow stance when chipping or pitching onto the green because that encourages golfers to use their lower bodies to maintain the rhythm of their swings.

And those arc the same reasons I strongly discourage a narrow stance for putting. A narrow stance makes it too easy for the golfer to move and rotate the lower body. Furthermore a narrow stance isn’t stable enough to resist being pushed around in the wind.

After we get through the remaining sections, you will understand that this will change your swing plane a bit. Your swing plane will become more horizontal, the straighter you stand up. Please realize that nothing else should change. You will swing each of your clubs in exactly the same fashion (found below). This repositioning at setup will have a huge effect on the outcome of your shot, so please take some time to see where you are the most comfortable.
