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:

Lag-Putt Drill

The three-putt is one of the most irritating and needless mistakes in golf. Unfortunately it is also one of the most common. Avoiding the three-putt is simple: Just lag your first putt into a six-foot circle around the hole; that will leave you a shorter than-three-foot putt which you can handle.

“Sure ” you say “it’s simple if you can roll your putts within three feet of the cup but that’s what I can’t do!” If that’s what you’re thinking it’s time you change the way you look at long (lag) putts. Look at me in Figure 13.3.11 holding the flagstick in a six-foot-diameter hole. I’m sure you’d bet that you could make every putt on every green if the holes were that big. When you see a real hole this big it looks enormous!

But avoiding three-putting is as simple as putting into a six-foot hole. So if it ‘s so simple why do you still three-putt? Not because it’s so difficult but because

3Z4 Develop Your Artistic Senses (Feel Touch Green-Reading) you don’t properly practice lag putting enough and you don’t have good feel or touch for your long putts.

To get the feel for lagging long putts close try our “Lag-Putt Drill ” which establishes three reference-distance putts – 40 50 and 60 feet – that you practice again and again. Every time you do this drill putt from different angles and slopes but always from 40 50 and 60 feet to a hole. You’ll find that once you begin to build confidence from these three distances (this will likely take repeating the drill on 10 different occasions) other long distances will become easier too.

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

Extract from the book:

The Grip: Light Is Better Than Tight

There are any number of ways to hold a putter. But I think there is only one way to set grip pressure and that is light and unchanging throughout your stroke. Light pressure is better than tight because squeezing your hands and flexing the hand wrist and arm muscles makes them stronger less pliant and less sensitive to delicate feelings. And remember your hands should be dead rather than strong when putting. So the lighter your grip (as long as the putter doesn’t slip out of your hands and your wrists don’t get floppy) the less likely you are to “hit” your putts and the more likely you will “stroke” them. This applies to all putting grips.

The purpose of your grip is to hold on to your putter as you allow it to move along the perfect in-line path with a square face angle through impact. There is no

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 105 right or wrong way to hold a putter for all golfers. But there is a best way for each golfer to hold his or her putter. This best way will lead to making the best stroke the greatest percentage of the time.

The grip that makes it easiest for most people to produce a pure-in-line stroke is the parallel-palms grip (Figure 4.10.15). By parallel I mean the palms and the backs of both hands are parallel to the putterface which means they are perpendicular to the intended putt-line. Most golfers’ arms hang naturally in this parallel position they find it equally natural to swing their arms hack and through perpendicular to their shoulder line (Figure 4.10.16) and this motion is both easy to repeat and promotes a consistent position through impact. However if it proves uncomfortable for you try putting your hands on your putter shaft in the same positions that they hang naturally (without manipulation) under your shoulders (Figure 4.10.17).

Many other grips are possible including the “open palm ” “left-hand-low ” “claw ” “fingertip ” and “equal-pressure” grips. How to best use these and other grips will be discussed in section 11.6 along with how you can develop the best grip for your putting stroke.

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

Extract from the book:

Golf Tuition Chelsfield Lakes Golf Club

The completed grip with both “V” shapes pointed toward the right shoulder. Note the “V” shapes are parallel with each other.Hopefully, you already have a grip that closely resembles this one. There are some slight variations, but this grip is standard for the most part. It should produce the best results. However, if you have a different grip than this, and you are more comfortable using it, you may continue using it. A grip is hard to change, and this one may feel really uncomfortable to you; however, benefits will come if you embrace this new grip. The “Simple Golf Swing” will most likely provide to you the desired results, even if you use your current grip. However, if you are still having problems when you get through the system, please incorporate the above grip method into your swing.
