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:

266 Establish Your Practice Framework

Back in section 9.8 I showed that a ball rolls straighter along its Aimline if it is rolled on its “Balance-line” (shown in Figure 11.7.5). I’ve been recommending for years that golfers measure and mark their balls this way then position them for putting with their Balance-line vertical and aligned directly along the Aimline. This means that the Balance-line can be aimed exactly along the Aimline from behind it will help the putt roll straighter and also serve as an alignment aid.

The Putter Face-Line

We’ve recently found a modification to the Balance-line called the putter “Face-

Establish Your Practice Framework 267 line.” The putter Face-line is a circle centered on the Dot-Spot and perpendicular to the Balance-line which means it will appear parallel to your putterface when the face is aimed squarely down your Aimline (assuming the Balance-line is aimed properly). The relationship of the putterface and the Face-line is shown in Figure 11.7.6; it may make proper alignment of your putter a bit easier to see.

When the putterface is parallel to the Face-line (which is perpendicular to the Balance-line) it should be lined up exactly square to the Aimline.

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

Extract from the book:

There’s a very simple message here: The more consistently a player transfers energy to the ball the better his or her putting touch can become. And the better a golfer ‘ s putting touch the more putts he makes and the lower his handicap. Why? Because consistent transfer of energy enhances one’s ability to control the speed that putts roll which controls not only how far and fast the ball travels and how much it breaks but also the probability of its hitting and staying in the hole.

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 91

Proper speed also largely eliminates the chance of three-putting. Above all else good speed control is a requirement for good putting.

The Sweetspot in Two Dimensions

I mentioned briefly that you can miss the sweetspot both horizontally and vertically. So a word about hitting putts high or low on the face. Most golfers habitually make contact at roughly the same height on their putterface. As long as this height is about four-tenths of an inch above the sole where most putters are designed to be hit this is good.

But some golfers try to hit up on their putts to produce overspin or topspin and in doing so usually contact the ball very low on the putterface near its bottom. This is bad because it causes hand and muscle control of the putter (subjecting you to the effects of adrenaline) and can even result in some putters rotating over the ball if hit hard enough (Figure 4.9.3). Such rotation can actually impart more backspin on a ball than the hitting-up motion removes. (1 prefer backweighted-low putter designs to eliminate this problem.) Hitting up on the ball also raises the effective putter loft which can launch a ball up off the green and produce a bouncing and therefore inconsistent putt.

Having said this there is one situation in which I recommend either hitting up on your putts or using a more-lofted-than-normal putter. When you find yourself putting on soft and severely bumpy greens you might want to try launching your short puns slightly upward to avoid the footprints that would send them squirting left or right. True this is not a great stroke but on truly bad surfaces it may be the least had of your options.

The wrists have completed their roll, and the left elbow is close the body.Swinging around the spine. The wrists have completed the roll and now the forearms are crossing.
