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:

It might seem about now that I’m being very negative about putting that I’m pointing out how hard it is how much you don’t know and how much you have to learn to be a good putter. I’m not trying to he negative but I am trying to point out how much you have to learn. Learning is what good putting is all about: It’s not hard to putt well; it is hard to learn how to putt well. And the difference is crucial. I place much of the blame for the difficulty in learning squarely on the putting green. The green provides a very poor environment in which to learn.

Standing on the putting green golfers have no idea why they miss putts or why they make them. After missing a putt (even on the practice green) most golfers assume their stroke mechanics were to blame. However they may have stroked a perfect putt but it hit a hard-to-see footprint which caused the putt to miss the hole. Or they might make a putt and assume they stroked it perfectly when they actually hit a terrible putt but misread it just the right amount to compensate and – only luck can explain it – roll it into the hole.

I learned a long time ago that if you learn from your mistakes things usually get better. But if you continue to repeat the same mistakes over and over again things get pretty bad. Then I read a book on learning theory and learned that immediate accurate reliable feedback is the key to efficient learning (Figure 2.7.1). This in fact has become the basis of all my teaching (I wrote about it at great length in my Short Game Bible). The basic notion is that if you don’t know right from wrong in practice there is no way you can improve. If you don’t know a good stroke from a bad stroke in practice you are just as likely to groove the bad one as the better one. If you make a perfect putting stroke from a bad setup position and then blame your miss on stroke path you’ll never learn to set up perfectly. Or if you blame your heart your courage or your self-worth when you miss putts then you’ll never fix your aim your path or the impact problems that truly are at fault.

A student in one of our Scoring Game Schools told me a story. In a laboratory devoted to the methodology of learning scientists were studying how pigeons learn to feed themselves from pellet dispensers. In one cage of pigeons they placed a number of dispensers all of which released one pellet every time a pigeon bumped or stepped on the release lever. Every time the lever was hit a pellet fell out. It took just two days for every pigeon in that cage to learn how to feed itself: hit the lever get a pellet.

There was another cage of pigeons which had the same number of identical-looking pellet dispensers. But these dispensers worked differently. They released pellets randomly. Sometimes pellets were released without the levers being touched. Sometimes they were released when the lever was touched once. And sometimes when the lever was touched nothing would happen. In time some of the pigeons thought that when they lifted their right wing a pellet was released. Some of the pigeons thought that if they chirped they would get a pellet. And some of the pigeons believed that if they turned in circles in front of the dispenser they would get a pellet. In two months none of the pigeons learned to feed themselves. In fact it was humorous watching the second cage: every pigeon practicing a different move hoping to release a pellet.

It reminds me of a practice putting green filled with golfers. One golfer is prac ticing a new grip. Another has widened his stance and is bending over more than he used to while his friend is trying the split-hand grip he saw on television. An other golfer is trying to learn a short backswing and “pop” stroke. All these golfers practicing something that they actually did just before they happened to make a putt hoping it will help them make another one.

And that is what you see if you look at many putting greens today. Golfers practicing practicing and practicing – who knows what they are practicing? – all hoping their putting will improve. Some of them practice a different thing every day and use a different stroke in every round. Some golfers even use several differ ent strokes during one round. Yes sir-ee they remind me of a bunch of pigeons!

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

Extract from the book:

I want you to understand the purpose of this technique before providing the details. It’s an easy technique that will produce fantastic results. You don’t need to have a long and complicated back swing to send the ball a long way down the fairway. Try taking, what you believe to be, a half swing. The ball will go almost as far. It may not leave the clubface with the same speed, but it also will not slice 40 yards to the right. Which shot would you rather have on a golf course? The drill I’m about to teach you will help you consistently keep the ball in the fairway, and give you better accuracy with all of your clubs.
