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:

Don ‘t let this happen to you. Use your indoor practice time to turn your stroke mechanics into habit controlled automatically by your subconscious mind. Once this happens you are free from having to think about them before and during each putt on the course. That time can then be used for focusing on the feel and look of the size of your practice stroke as you judge its appropriateness for the upcoming putt. Once you feel and see what you believe to be the perfect practice stroke you have eight seconds to step up to the ball and stroke it exactly that way. Within that eight seconds you still have a vivid memory in your mind’s eye of how your “preview stroke” looks and feels so that’s how much time you have to do it again with the only difference that this time there happens to be a ball just ahead of the bottom of the stroke arc.

Putting within eight seconds of your last perfect practice stroke is not hard to do. Force yourself to make it a habit. This will not only help you develop better feel and touch for distance but will make putting under pressure easier because thinking is taken out of the equation.

Great putters don’t think their way through great putting strokes. Great putters make great strokes out of habit while they focus on the feel and size of the stroke they need to make.

5.7 Attitude

I strongly believe that your mind and your attitude play an important role in your putting success. Not that your mind can move the golf ball or that “positive thinking” can overcome a bad stroke. But if you have developed a reasonably good mechanical stroke as well as the ability to use that stroke without thinking about it then you can use your mind to focus on the touch and feel required to putt well. And a good attitude will let your body proceed with the work at hand with confidence.

Experience is required both to learn good feel and touch and the confidence to fully use it. You cannot learn confidence from a book or videotape although both can teach you how to learn it. Once you learn the size of the stroke that you need and how it feels to make it then all it takes is practice to learn to move from the preview stroke to the real stroke in a timely manner. If you have learned to do this and practiced it a lot you’ll develop a quiet understanding a confidence a calm and a focus that allow you to concentrate on the meaningful and controllable aspects of feel and touch.

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

Extract from the book:

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.

To establish a stable base for your stroke take a stance width that is at least as wide as your shoulders (Figure 4.10.13) as measured from the centerline of your

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 103 shoes to the center of each shoulder. Even wider stances are okay but narrower is not.

If stability continues to be a problem you might borrow something from Arnold Palmer who established a very solid base for his putting stroke by standing knock-kneed (Figure 4.10.14). With his knees turned in Arnold absolutely could not move his lower body. However most golfers I suggest this to seem embarrassed to use it which is too had because it works.

104 The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics

Opening or closing your stance by moving your feet off the flow-line is accept able but not recommended. Because your stance can affect your shoulder align ment and the line of your shoulders is vital to good putting I normally recom mend setting the feet square. Of course it is possible to move your feet open or closed without moving your shoulders. Just be sure your shoulder flow-line re mains parallel-left to your Aimline.

My measurements also show that many of the world’s best putters create a stable lower body by placing slightly more than half – 55 to 60 percent – of their weight on their forward foot.

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.
