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:

7.12 The Mind ‘ s Role in Green-Reading most important tool for green-reading is your subconscious mind. I hope by you see that I’m doing everything 1 can to educate and inform your subconu cious so you will not only be ready but also able to learn to read greens by the you get to Chapter 13. Your ability to read greens accurately – to predict re ball tracks and putting speeds before they happen – is a skill that must be developed. It is experiential in nature and requires good feedback a keen mental focus and many repetitions before it becomes accurate and reliable.

The more times you see the same putt on the same green roll the same way the re sure you become that it will do the same thing in the future. In the last few sections you learned that:

It’s time to move on from describing and discussing the 15 building blocks of putting to explaining a few other influences. But I want to warn you of something. You go out and try to put all I’ve said in this and the last few chapters to work immediately before you finish reading this book and start a putting-improvement am you might become confused and give up reverting to your old “gutputting. I don’ t want that to happen. I want you to keep reading and learning preparing yourself to understand g well enough to make it simple. Learning to read greens is much more important than improving your ability to make a few more putts. If you never learn to read greens properly you can n ever use a pure-in-line-square noncompensating putting stroke because it will miss every time if you don’t know how to read greens and where to aim. Only by learning to read putts properly will you be able to benefit from improving the first 14 building blocks of putting. If you spend the time to practice improve those fundamentals it makes no sense to throw it all away because didn’t improve your ability to read greens.

Think about it this way. You have three possibilities:

1. If you don’t improve any of the first 14 fundamentals but do improve your green-reading you’ll make a few more putts because your compensations will be smaller and more accurate. and touch and also improve your green-reading skills you may begin to hole almost everything.

Your mind is the key. It controls your body which controls your putter which controls the starting line and speed of your putts. And your mind reads the greens. Let ‘s keep learning. The more you understand the simpler it gets. And as always simpler is better.

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

Extract from the book:

I don’t mean to criticize Arnold or Deacon Palmer because Arnold putted well enough to be one of the best players of all time. But I’m convinced that with his fantastic imagination talent and competitive instincts (he certainly never had the best golf swing) he would have been even more dominant and for a longer time if he had used a simpler putting stroke and been a better putter.

The Grip: Light Is Better Than Tight

There are any number of ways to hold a putter. But I think there is only one way to set grip pressure and that is light and unchanging throughout your stroke. Light pressure is better than tight because squeezing your hands and flexing the hand wrist and arm muscles makes them stronger less pliant and less sensitive to delicate feelings. And remember your hands should be dead rather than strong when putting. So the lighter your grip (as long as the putter doesn’t slip out of your hands and your wrists don’t get floppy) the less likely you are to “hit” your putts and the more likely you will “stroke” them. This applies to all putting grips.

The purpose of your grip is to hold on to your putter as you allow it to move along the perfect in-line path with a square face angle through impact. There is no

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 105 right or wrong way to hold a putter for all golfers. But there is a best way for each golfer to hold his or her putter. This best way will lead to making the best stroke the greatest percentage of the time.

The grip that makes it easiest for most people to produce a pure-in-line stroke is the parallel-palms grip (Figure 4.10.15). By parallel I mean the palms and the backs of both hands are parallel to the putterface which means they are perpendicular to the intended putt-line. Most golfers’ arms hang naturally in this parallel position they find it equally natural to swing their arms hack and through perpendicular to their shoulder line (Figure 4.10.16) and this motion is both easy to repeat and promotes a consistent position through impact. However if it proves uncomfortable for you try putting your hands on your putter shaft in the same positions that they hang naturally (without manipulation) under your shoulders (Figure 4.10.17).

Many other grips are possible including the “open palm ” “left-hand-low ” “claw ” “fingertip ” and “equal-pressure” grips. How to best use these and other grips will be discussed in section 11.6 along with how you can develop the best grip for your putting stroke.

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

Extract from the book:

Golf Tuition Burnham & Berrow Golf Club

Keep focusing on bringing your right shoulder back and around your spine. Some of you may be able to turn about 90 degrees around your spine as shown in the picture on the left. Others may only be able to turn 45 degrees around your spine. Either is okay, but do not start moving other parts of the body to compensate for not being able to make a full shoulder turn. Stop when it gets uncomfortable. The important part is to STAY CONNECTED. When your left arm becomes parallel to the ground, stop your swing.
