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:

A putting ritual consists of a few motions the last few you make before initiating the backswing of your real stroke. Besides being a consistent set of motions they are all made in a constant rhythm and timing sequence. It should never change. Your ritual sets the tone and timing for the rhythm of your stroke. It is this pattern and timing of motions that provides the trigger – the “one-two-three-go ” – for your stroke. Your ritual must take less than eight seconds to execute so the feel and vision of your perfect preview stroke is still mostly there fresh in your brain and body.

Once your ritual has begun there is no turning back unless you are so dis

Five Nonphysical Building Blocks: Touch Feel Attitude Routine and Ritual 129 tracted by something that you must abort the stroke altogether. And once your ritual has begun there is no thinking other than what it takes to execute the ritual and repeat the preview stroke.

I have simplified my own putting ritual since I wrote Putt Like the Pros 10 years ago. It is now slightly shorter and more repeatable taking only a five-count to execute. This means I can strike my putts within six seconds after committing to my preview stroke.

1 haven’t changed this new ritual in seven years and it’s not going to change in the future. All of my stroke mechanics have been grooved to this rhythm and I have committed them to habit. I don ‘ t have to think about the mechanics when I putt so I can concentrate on the feel and touch of my preview stroke. And if I can concentrate fully enough to create a good preview stroke (which can be difficult at times) I can putt every time with the full belief and confidence that I have made the best stroke I can. So 1 honestly feel that on most putts with any luck at all 1’11 probably make it. That’s a great feeling to have.

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

Extract from the book:

This technique produced the consistently best putting I’ve ever seen and it is legal. But I’m certain that if someone switches to this style and starts winning with it the USGA probably will ban it.

One of the tenets of the USGA the ruling body of golf is to protect and maintain the integrity of the game in part by preserving its challenge and difficulty. I support this noble purpose and think most golfers feel the same way. If we lost the challenge in the game it wouldn’t be nearly so much fun. Having said that we all want to make our own putting strokes simpler so we can hole more putts score better and enjoy the game to its fullest.

In keeping with their tradition of maintaining the game’s challenge the USGA would prefer that golfers putt in what they describe as the “traditional style.” While this technique is not as simple or easy as the methods described above it’s not necessarily all that difficult either. Lots of putts have been and will be made the USGA way.

Up to this point I have been going from the easiest to more difficult ways to putt. Now I have to reverse that. In discussing the following ways to putt all of which conform to the Rules I will begin with the most difficult and work down to what I perceive to be the easiest way to putt.

The USGA would be happiest if every golfer would putt like Bobby Jones (Figure 3.4.1) used to putt and would use a putter similar to Jones’s old “Calamity Jane.” Jones putted standing perpendicular to the intended putting line and made what appeared to be a miniature golf swing. While this sounds like it might make putting easy being like all the other swings in golf in reality it makes putting quite a bit more difficult.

If the putting stroke is a miniature chip shot which is a miniature 5-iron swing which is a miniature driver swing it makes down-the-line vision difficult involves a slight rotation of the body and encourages rotation of the forearms. This also encourages rotation of the putterface provides far more power than is needed and brings to bear critical timing requirements all of which make putting so difficult and traumatic to so many golfers.

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

Extract from the book:

Golf Tuition C & L Golf

The chest and shoulders shouldn’t be turning, unless your arms are turning with them. In other words, you want to start your swing with a shoulder turn, but your arms should start swinging at EXACTLY the same time. They are an extension. They are connected. Furthermore, your arms shouldn’t be swinging unless your chest is rotating. Don’t start swinging your arms without starting the shoulder turn. They are connected. Your left elbow remains locked throughout the entire swing. When you complete your shoulder turn, your arms should stop as well. The goal will be to have your left arm exactly parallel to the ground. Your elbow is still locked. When it gets there…STOP. Do not continue to swing your arms.
