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:

Chiputting

Every golfer should run the “Chiputt Test” to determine the distance at which the chiputt becomes a better choice than putting. The chiputt is a stroke made with a putter but utilizing a chipping grip stance posture swing and follow-through (Figure 13.2.6).

Several years ago I ran a series of tests that showed the longer a putt is the more likely it is to be left short. There are two reasons for this: (1) Bending over in the normal putting posture restricts the power of the putting stroke; and (2) bending over makes it difficult to get a good perspective for distance (Figure 13.2.7). Together these two factors mean amateurs have a hard time giving their putts enough power to roll 80 90 or 100 feet. (This problem is made worse since most golfers seldom practice putts this long.)

So when you have a long putt that you will likely leave short don’t putt it but stand tall and chiputt it. You already know how to chiputt: Just chip the ball using your putter. The only question is at what distance will you chiputt better than you putt? To find out run the Chiputt test:

Walk off distances from 50 to 100 feet and mark them with tees in increments of 10 feet. At 50 feet putt three balls then chiputt three. See which technique rolls

You need to understand the realities of putting so you’ll be more tolerant when unexplained things happen to you on the greens. You need to believe – no you need to know – that there is no net luck in putting no matter how your putts seem to be rolling bouncing or deflecting that day.

Once you understand the reality of the problems of the game and the often cruel statistical nature of its results you will be better prepared to proceed with your learning program which will lead to your improved putting. Always remain alert to the importance of immediate accurate reliable feedback and what it can do for your practice and on-course putting. So take heart and realize your better scores will come from more areas than simply improving your stroke mechanics. There’s much more to good putting than that physical stroke motion of yours.

Problems on the Greens 33

There are many different ways for golfers to putt. Having said that it does not mean that I’m advocating all or any of these methods. But it’s important that you are aware of the choices a golfer has and even a few he doesn’t unless he doesn’t care about the Rules of Golf (which I think you must if you’re going to he serious about this game).

The old adage “different strokes for different folks” is very meaningful because some putting strokes work better than others for certain players while no one stroke works perfectly for everyone. While no strokes even perfect ones make all their putts some really awful strokes do make some putts. And sometimes the differences between good and bad strokes are very difficult to measure or see. But believe me the differences are there.
