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:

That’s touch knowing how long the putt is knowing how much power it will require to roll a ball there and knowing what stroke would provide such a roll.

Now let ‘s work on improving yours.

304 Develop Your Artistic Senses (Feel Touch Green-Reading)

Seeing (Recognizing) Distance

To have good putting touch you first must know how long your putts are. When I began playing the game no one worried about how long a putt was or for that matter the distances of shots coming into greens. No one had yet thought of using a yardage book on the golf course and no one walked off distances from sprinkler heads. (Of course they weren’t marked with distances.) Veteran players said knowing the actual yardage would hurt your game because it removed feel. They said they could see the distance. However things have changed with the times.

Today there isn’t one player on the PGA or LPGA Tour who doesn’t use yardage books (as well as pin sheets) to know the absolutely precise distances of the game. It has been proven that it’s better for your game to know your distances than it is to see and guess them.

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

Extract from the book:

Up to this point I have been going from the easiest to more difficult ways to putt. Now I have to reverse that. In discussing the following ways to putt all of which conform to the Rules I will begin with the most difficult and work down to what I perceive to be the easiest way to putt.

The USGA would be happiest if every golfer would putt like Bobby Jones (Figure 3.4.1) used to putt and would use a putter similar to Jones’s old “Calamity Jane.” Jones putted standing perpendicular to the intended putting line and made what appeared to be a miniature golf swing. While this sounds like it might make putting easy being like all the other swings in golf in reality it makes putting quite a bit more difficult.

If the putting stroke is a miniature chip shot which is a miniature 5-iron swing which is a miniature driver swing it makes down-the-line vision difficult involves a slight rotation of the body and encourages rotation of the forearms. This also encourages rotation of the putterface provides far more power than is needed and brings to bear critical timing requirements all of which make putting so difficult and traumatic to so many golfers.

Methods of Putting 41

As I continue to detail the various options you have for putting you should know that some of the legal ways are easier than others (yet not one is truly easy). And here’s the kicker: Only one will work best for you.

As 1 mentioned above l’m moving from the more to the less complex in terms of having to perform manipulations and actions to make these strokes happen. That means I’m going to finish with the method I think is the easiest. You can skip ahead if you like but 1’d suggest reading through the less desirable methods so you don’t someday find yourself doing something that you think is good but is actually hurting your chances of success.

One putting method you rarely hear about is “body putting.” As shown in Figure 3.5.1 the arms wrists and hands arc locked onto the body so the putter is swung by the rotation of the body around the spine. One reason it’s rarely mentioned is that you’ve never seen a Tour professional putt this way for any length of time and with any measure of success. I have tried it and yes putts can be made with this stroke. But that doesn’t mean you should do it.

Golf Swing Tips

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

Extract from the book:

Now, you should be standing up straight, with your chest out, and your shoulders back. Your arms should be out in front of you, your elbows locked, and your wrists level with the height of your waist, while holding the club parallel to the ground. Next, bend over AT THE HIPS until the club touches the ground. Move towards or away from the ball according to where the club touches the ground. After some practice, you will be able to judge the distance well enough so that you don’t have to move around to get into position. Keep your chest out and straight while bending over at the hips. It is impossible to overstate the importance of this. You should not be bending with the back at all to reach down to the ball; you should be bending AT THE HIPS. This is one of the most common mistakes made by amateur golfers. If you look at any professional golfer on television, they will ALWAYS have a straight back, and they will ALWAYS bend at the waist to get to the ball. You will feel like your “seat” is protruding backwards more than usual. That is what we want here. Also, it’s okay if the toe of your club is not flush with the ground. It’s should be that way, especially for the long irons.
