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:

366 Wrap-Up

15.2 The Putting Game

Rules ofthe Game

Do you read the instructions on how to open a package before you open it? How to operate a new VCR before you turn it on? Where to put the batteries to dispose of them properly? Most of us don’t and most of us putt without knowing the rules of the putting game. Knowing the rules is good and sometimes helps (Figure 15.2.1).

Putting Science

Putting can be (although for most golfers is not) a simple mechanical motion controlled by your mind through a series of simple mental considerations. But you don’t have to be a genius to understand everything about putting.

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

Extract from the book:

My tests also show that the long putter hanging vertically (from under the chin) is marginally more effective than the long putter anchored against the chest (right side of Figure 3.5.11) and better than the midlength putter anchored below the chest. But all three of these options because they employ a longer-thannormal-length shaft eliminate the problem of wrist breakdown that hampers many golfers.

The negatives of putting with a long putter are learning to roll putts the right distance (it requires learning new feel and touch for distance) and occasional instability in windy conditions. However both problems can be handled with a little practice leading me to believe they aren’t inherent problems but caused by a lack of experience.

50 Methods of Putting

The Pure Pendulum Stroke And that brings us to the simplest easiest most repeatable most reliable and therefore best way to putt – the pure no-hit pendulum stroke. By this I mean a putter swinging in rhythm with the arms and hands with no power input from the hands and wrists whatsoever. If the pendulum is pure and swings down the line with no face rotation it is as simple a motion as can be made under the Rules of Golf. And that’s why it is the method I recommend most often to my students. And I recommend it to you.

To see it in use watch George Archer on the Senior PGA Tour who has produced the purest and best pendulum stroke for the longest period of time of anyone I’ve ever seen (Figure 3.5.12). Over a 20-year period playing against Nicklaus Palmer Player Watson Crenshaw Ballesteros Faldo and Norman Archer holed a higher percentage of his putts than all the rest.

The list of others who make pure-pendulum strokes reads like a who’s who of great putters including Bob Charles Greg Norman Dave Stockton Andy North Loren Roberts and Phil Mickelson (Figure 3.5.13). Having now looked at these great putters and seeing how simple their strokes are doesn’t it make you want to start putting that way? If it does you are reading the right book because my Putting Bible is mostly about why what and how to do it!
