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:

No putting result is ever for sure until the ball stops rolling. And the factors that cause this uncertainty are many and varied some of which you can see and

Problems on the Greens 15 some you can’t. That does not mean that all putting is the result of luck or that good putting is just lucky putting. There is no such thing as overall or long-term luck in putting. The good and bad breaks that occur to an individual always balance out over a golf season so in the end the players who make the most good strokes always hole the most putts. There is no net luck good or bad in putting.

So forget about luck both good and bad (which you can’t control anyway) and look for the factors that you can control (or at least influence) to determine results. Also become aware of the influences outside your control that can affect your results. Many of them are visible and therefore easily recognized. Some however are invisible to the human eye and are much more difficult to deal with (see section 2.3).

I don’t mention these outside-influence factors to make the game seem more difficult but to help you recognize and understand them so that when you witness unexpected behavior on the greens you won’t panic. And I mention them now before getting into any mechanics of good putting so you keep things in perspective keeping what you can and can’t control separate. If you can always keep the “big picture” in mind and ignore the short-term statistical uncertainties you can better accomplish your tasks of playing the game and focusing your attention on those things you can control.

We can see – and therefore know about – the obvious imperfections on the surface of a putting green caused by disease spike marks and pitch marks. These often cause balls to go somewhere other than where we wanted them to go:

All of these green imperfections can have a negative effect on putting especially when the ball is moving slowly (as it does near the end of its roll). And you know what? There is nothing you can do about it. But all of these are seeable so golfers understand them and know they are part of the game. If you miss a putt because of one of them you mark it down to a bit of bad luck assume that your good luck will come and don’t worry. But most important you don’t change your stroke because of them.

Defining How the Ball Rolls

Before getting into the mechanics of the putting stroke I’ll define some vocabulary which will help keep things simple and easy to understand throughout the book. In our Scoring Game Schools we routinely use words or phrases that you may not be familiar with. We do this because we’ve found that many golfers refer to the same things using different terms and sometimes use the same terms to describe different things.

Obviously this can lead to unnecessary confusion and disagreement. It helps to be more explicit in how you describe and define some of these concepts. For ex ample my staff and I never talk about “putting to there ” or putting “that way.”

Rather we talk about the “Aimline” you intend to start the ball rolling on the “ini tial line” you actually start the ball on and where the “ball track” goes after that.

Ball-Hole Line and Target Line

When we talk about the “ball-hole” line for any putt we mean the straight line between where the ball sits (before you putt it) and the hole (Figure 4.1.2). How ever because the hole is always your ultimate target some golfers call this their

Golf Swing Tips

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

Extract from the book:

The right elbow should remain locked to your right side throughout the backswing. As you can see, the left arm is still locked as well.This step is included for many reasons. First, it helps you swing around your spine and promotes a correct shoulder turn. It’s really hard to move your body horizontally, while keeping your right elbow locked to your side at the same time. Secondly, it prevents the “flying elbow.” The flying elbow produces everything from a slice to a wicked hook, depending on what you do with your hands in conjunction with it. So, keeping your elbow in contact with your side will help tremendously in assuring that you swing around your body, every single time. Third, it’s a power-producing move because it will put you in a position to easily flip your hands through the ball. Fourth, keeping your right elbow locked to your side will give you a great point of reference. It keeps your swing plane correct, and is a great indicator of when to stop the back swing. Finally, it helps you to “stay connected” throughout the swing. If you have your right elbow locked at your side, it will be hard to swing your arms without rotating your shoulders and visa versa.
