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:

Now that you have good touch you need good feel to be able to transform what your touch tells you is needed into a stroke that feels right and that you believe will provide the perfect roll (speed and distance) required.

Remember touch is knowing “what” to do while feel is knowing “how” to do it. So when you practice feel you must assume you already know what is needed (the size of the required stroke) and you’re trying to create the how (feel) to do it. Although this assumption isn’t always the case on the course (sometimes your touch gives you its best estimate of what is needed but you doubt its accuracy) you

Develop Your Artistic Senses (Feel Touch Green-Reading) 313 must trust your touch when you practice feel on the putting green. This means feel practice should be very repetitive internalizing the process of producing a given stroke and roll after you know the power and distance needed for that putt.

To practice feel you must practice using your mind’s-eye memories and prior training to visualize how the stroke should look and feel to create optimum distance and speed. Knowing this relationship is your feel in putting. You then can recognize a job well done by the good feeling you get as you swing through impact and reach the end of your follow-through. You’ll know even before looking up to see where the ball has gone: If you feel “Ahhh yes that’s as good as I can stroke it; I made an exact repeat of my preview stroke and that’s the exact stroke I wanted to put on the ball ” then you know you did a good job feeling the putt.

However if you look up and see the ball going nowhere near the hole – that your stroke rolled it way too fast and past the hole – you know your touch failed you. This is a condition you don’ t want in your practice of feel. And that is why you should always practice putting to the same hole over and over again (so your touch of knowing what is needed becomes obviously accurate) when you are working on feel.

There are times when you may have the opposite experience. You’ll strike your pull and before looking up you know that you don’t like it. You know in your mind’s eye that the ball is not going where you planned it to go. The reason will he one (or a combination) of the following:

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

Extract from the book:

Proper putter fitting is not fundamentally a part of putting stroke mechanics but there’s no doubt that it can help you make better strokes. If the length or lie of a putter is wrong for you you’ll be forced to make compensations in order to putt at all well (Figure 4.11.1). And every characteristic of your putter that is poorly fit to your body size shape setup posture or alignment is one more card stacked against the odds of your executing a pure accurate smooth and noncompensating stroke.

The truth is that most golfers change their strokes to fit their putters when they should be changing their putters to fit their strokes (Figure 4.11.2). They don’t do much in the way of putter fitting in some cases because all they’ve been told about choosing a putter is to use one that they like the looks of. In other instances golfers use whatever putter has been given to them.

You should never change from your proper eye position stance or posture to accommodate a poorly fit putter.

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 109

My belief is that you need to be fit for a putter before you waste too much time trying to work around a bad one. You may or may not end up changing it later but at least you can make some good improvements until you decide. The details of fitting a putter to your body and stroke will be discussed in section 11.6.

4.12 The Mind’s Role in Putting Stroke Mechanics

There is one last ingredient I ‘ve yet to touch on in this long list of putting factors. And that is the mind. How important is the mind when putting? You can’t move the golf ball even 1/32 of an inch with just your mind. Your mind doesn’t hold the putter. However that doesn’t mean the mind has no power because the mind can stop your body from accomplishing something in a heartbeat. Your mind must believe you can make a putt at least that the possibility exists . . . or you won’t. You must realize that of course you “can” make the putt. It really is possible. Always remember what one of my favorite putters in the whole world (Dave Stockton) said to me: “I never met a putt I couldn’t make.”

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

Extract from the book:

Golf Tuition Castle Royle Golf Club

Start your backswing. Focus on keeping your back straight, and your chest out. To help you swing directly around your spine, try focusing on rotating your right shoulder back and around your spine. If you focus on the right shoulder, your left shoulder will be in the correct position automatically. Simple. Keep your left elbow locked.
