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:

Step 4. Make at least three but not more than six practice swings until you see and feel the perfect stroke that you imagine would roll an imaginary ball sitting four inches to the left of your real ball (Figure 11.2.4) along an imaginary ball track over an imaginary hole to a resting point 17 inches behind and four inches

Establish Your Practice Framework 225 to the left of the real hole. (Everything about this practice – the imaginary ball ball track and 17-inches-past point – should be four inches to the left of where you see the real ball track and hole so when you move four inches over to address your putt everything will be correct for the real putt while still exactly the same as the way you just practiced it.)

Always make your first practice swing looking at the imaginary point 17 inches past sensing and feeling the proper-length swing for the distance. Make the second swing while looking down at your imaginary ball again trying to feel the perfect-size stroke. Make at least one more practice stroke while looking down then look up after you finish the follow-through (holding it for a few seconds) and imagine your imaginary ball rolling to the perfect 17-inches-past point. If after this third stroke everything feels right and you believe a repeat of your third stroke will hole the real putt commit to it as your “preview” of the best stroke you can make.

Step 5. With your decision that your last practice stroke was the perfect stroke the one that will hole the real putt you have created your preview stroke the perfect stroke for making your putt. You have just seen and felt it in your mind’s eye.

However if you are not completely confident after a third practice stroke in Step 4 you are allowed one two or even three more practice strokes until you see and feel the perfect preview stroke. Once you feel it commit to it and move into the address position for your real putt. Moving in is Step 5.

You’re now ready to execute your putting ritual and stroke your putt. Your 5step routine should have prepared you to make the best stroke you know how to make. The better you have seen and felt that your preview stroke was perfect and the clearer the perfect stroke remains in your mind’s eye the more likely you are to make a good stroke when you actually putt (Figure 11.2.5).

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

Extract from the book:

There are many different ways for golfers to putt. Having said that it does not mean that I’m advocating all or any of these methods. But it’s important that you are aware of the choices a golfer has and even a few he doesn’t unless he doesn’t care about the Rules of Golf (which I think you must if you’re going to he serious about this game).

The old adage “different strokes for different folks” is very meaningful because some putting strokes work better than others for certain players while no one stroke works perfectly for everyone. While no strokes even perfect ones make all their putts some really awful strokes do make some putts. And sometimes the differences between good and bad strokes are very difficult to measure or see. But believe me the differences are there.

Before I discuss some of the many methods you could employ let me pass on to you the one thought the one axiom that governs all my theories on putting. It is this: Simpler is better. You’ll find research test results in many different disciplines that validate this conclusion. It is certainly true in almost all of sports. Why? Because regardless of your level of talent the less you give yourself to do (and still get the job done) the more consistently you can learn to do it. Whereas the more compensations that must he made in your putting stroke the more difficult it will be to repeat in such a way that it actually makes your putts. The more complex a putting stroke (that is the more compensations that must be made to make it effective) the more uncertain (or inconsistent) its results by any golfer regardless of skill level.

All this may sound routine and you may have heard it many times before but that doesn’t mean it isn’t true. And more important that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be taken seriously. So there’s no question about it: In putting simpler is better.

Methods of Putting 35

The simpler and easier the stroke is to execute the more precisely and repetitively you’ll be able to learn to execute it especially under pressure. And that’s why all my teaching begins with that principle.

Let’s examine some specifics about the many ways you can putt. First we’ll look at two of the easiest ways which are both illegal according to the USGA. Why? Well for one thing they really aren’t putting at all although they are very effective ways of rolling the ball on the green and into the hole. But they don’t utilize a stroke. Therefore according to the USGA they aren’t putting. And I must agree with them: They aren’t really putting.

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

Extract from the book:

Golf Tuition Catterick Golf Club

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.
