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:

I often recommend using several practice techniques (and feedback devices) simultaneous ly or in tandem one after the other. The problem and its compensation developed to gether so it’s best to get rid of them together.

I’ve seen too many well-intentioned golfers improve one aspect of their putting game then lose that improvement when their putting results were less than they expected on the course and give up. They reverted to their old ways or went off on a new direction looking for some other improvement (by trying a new putter new grip new stance or new thought) and looking for instant gratification. You must realize and regularly remind yourself that you’re not just removing problems you’re also trying to remove the prob lems caused by those problems (called compensations) so improvement may not come as easily or as quickly as you’d like it to.

If you don’t understand and accept this truth you’re likely to remain very disap pointed in your lack of improvement and stuck at the same handicap for the rest of your golf career.

The Simple Tru-Putt The easiest way to determine whether or not you are habitually making an in-swing face-angle correction during your stroke is with the Tru-Putt (Figure 12.4.1). Position your putter square to the end of the Tru-Putt and make a stroke. If your putter returns to square at impact the way it was at address the Tru-Putt will slide straight across the floor along the line perpendicular to your putterface (your Aimline). If however your stroke comes into impact with a face-angle adjustment relative to the way you aligned it at address the Tru-Putt will tell you by rotating off the putterface and turning to one side or the other.

Because both the ends of the Tru-Putt and your putterface arc flat there’s little room for error at contact. If your putter is closed at impact Tru-Putt spins away with a clockwise rotation; the more the face is closed the quicker the rotation. An open face produces counterclockwise rotation. My recommendation is that you practice with the Tru-Putt between three and five minutes twice a week making your 6- 12- and 18-inch reference backswing strokes until you start producing straight-sliding rather than rotating Tru-Putt motions. Finish each session by stroking a few really long putts (imagine you’re standing over a 70-footer) and a few very short ones (imagine 3-footers). Always leave enough room for the Tru-Putt to slide so you get good feedback on your face-angle performance. This drill

286 Improve Your Stroke Mechanics is simple easy and inexpensive but doesn’t do anything for your aim and setup. So periodically intersperse your Tru-Putt sessions with some work with the Putting Track and/or Elk’s Key to check on your stroke path your eye and shoulder alignments and with the LazrAimer to check your aim.

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

Extract from the book:

4.2 Stroke Definitions

Where are you aiming? Sooner or later 1 ask that question of every golfer I work with. Aim is a critical aspect of putting (more on that later) and both you and I need to know not only where you are trying to aim (where you think you are aiming) but also where you are actually aiming your putter your stance and your stroke.

Technically when I refer to aim I am referring to a direction. The direction of your aim can be at a place like the edge of the hole or at an object such as a discolored piece of grass a spike mark or anything you can see and define. What you choose to aim at can be anywhere along your Aimline from just in front of the ball to alongside or even past the hole. Your aim can be one inch one ball three balls a foot or even 10 feet outside the right or left edge of the cup or it can be anywhere inside the cup. Only after you determine how much you expect your putt to break and define somewhere or something to aim at can the direction of your aim your Aimline be visualized located or marked on the green.

The track along which your putter travels is your “putter path. ” It can move straight back and straight through in-line with your Aimline it can cut across from outside-to-in or inside-to-out (shown in Figure 4.2.1) or it can loop around your Aimline. Golfers take their putters severely or slightly inside and outside their Aimlines waver along their Aimlines and sometimes incorporate a bit of all of the above into their putting paths. I believe there are almost as many distinct putter paths as there are golfers and I’m sure I haven’t seen them all.

Face Angle

A very important consideration is the putterface angle which we define as the angle between the perpendicular to your putterface and your Aimline (left side

At the end of step two, you reached the top of your backswing. As soon, as you get there, start your downswing. As you start the downswing, make sure to remind yourself to keep your arms “connected” to your chest and shoulders. Stay connected all the way through the ball. Your hands and arms only swing as the shoulders rotate. If you start your downswing by rotating your chest, without starting to swing your arms, you will most definitely end up slicing the ball. If you swing your arms before rotating your chest, you will most likely hook the ball. Staying connected will always produce the straightest ball.
