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:

The drill is performed by putting three-footers from the four different quadrants around a hole as firmly as possible without the balls popping out of the hole. Make a game of it trying to bounce the ball off the back edge of the hole up into the air without producing lip-outs or flying over the cup (Figure 13.3.10) and don’t worry about your misses. Of course I don’t recommend stroking the ball this hard on the course but if you consistently roll your short putts weakly to the cup you need to experience the other side of the mountain during practice so you can settle in the middle on the course.

Drill 5: 17-Inches-Past Drill Rolling putts 17 inches past the hole makes sense to most golfers until they face a short putt. Then they are surprised when I tell them that the 17-inches-past speed is good for putts of all lengths even the very short

Develop Your Artistic Senses (Feel Touch Green-Reading) 323 over the hole. ones. The hole doesn’t know or care where the putt is coming from; it just cares whether or not the ball hits the hole and if so at what speed.

To establish and maintain your feel for the perfect speed on short putts practice this drill from time to time (10 minutes about once a month will do – it doesn’t take long). This drill is to be done by yourself on the green using the Phony-Hole and a dime placed 17 inches behind it. Take three balls and putt them from different distances trying to roll all of them over the cup. Hold your finish (until each putt stops) and watch carefully how close each ball finishes to the dime. If you don ‘t have a good feel for how far 17 inches is half the length of your putter is close enough.

You’ll probably be surprised how easy this drill is. That ‘s good. It is intended to convince your subconscious that if it will just let you roll your short putts the proper speed you won’t have any trouble making them.

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

Extract from the book:

Touch is in your head but it begins with knowing what your putt looks like and remembering (knowing based on past experience) how much power (the size or intensity of stroke) was required in the past for similar putts. Touch is an acquired skill based on past experiences. It resides in your memory bank and plays a part in creating the mind’s-eye picture of the size of stroke you need.

Before you can develop a good feel for a putt you need to have a good idea for how long it is and how much power will be required to roll it the proper speed and distance: In other words you need to have touch. Given that feel for the putt involves having a good idea of how to apply the power which will be needed to roll the ball at the optimum speed along that line to allow it to break into the hole. Having good feel for a putt is having the idea or picture in your mind’s eye of how the stroke will look and feel in both rhythm and intensity as it rolls the ball to the hole. So a part of feel is in your head. Feel also involves a kinesthetic awareness for the violence (or nonviolence) of your swing and knowing the physical sensation to expect at impact including the vibrations that will travel up the shaft after the putter strikes the ball. It is based on the feel of your collected experience from thousands of swings you’ve made on previous putts and the results they produced. This feel is produced in your nerve endings fingers arms and shoulders in the muscles of all of these entities as well as in your brain and memory.

Is one part of feel more important than any other? I don’t know. But more to the point I’m not sure I care. Because I do know that all these factors are necessary for good putting and the end result feel ultimately is experiential. You’ve got to do it lots of times to learn it and know it.

Feel is knowing how to do it touch is knowing what to do. A golfer with good touch can have a had day physically when his body simply can ‘t execute what his brain knows he should do. On a day like this we’d say his feel is off. This golfer will be frustrated because he doesn’t seem to be able to do what he knows he can and needs to do. Compare that to a golfer with poor touch: He can have great feel and still never make a putt because if you choose the wrong speed yet roll it perfectly at that speed the results still won ‘t be very good. So poor-touch golfers are more likely to get bewildered than frustrated (Figure 5.2.1).

Here is a view from the front. The goal of this photo is to show that there is no lateral movement. Simply rotating your right shoulder around your spine.*Please note that you should NOT be cocking your wrists at the end of your backswing. While this may add a bit of power, it will totally throw off your timing. The results of a wrist cock are slices, hooks, fat shots, etc.
