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:

Safety-Drawback (SDB):

Double-Safety-Drawback (DSDB):

Develop Your Artistic Senses (Feel Touch Green-Reading) 309

Drawback to many different holes. You are penalized when you don’t roll the ball the proper speed rewarded when you do. It’s the judging of your speed and distance result after each putt (whether it stops in the Safe-Zone or not) that teaches your mind’s eye the proper touch for the future. And because of the penalty for finishing either short or more than 34 inches past you instinctively learn the touch required to roll putts 17 inches past the hole more frequently. This is the touch you want to carry over into all your putting for makable-range putts up to 35 feet.

Double-Safety-Drawback

This is the ultimate pressure drill for practicing touch on putts between 10 and 30 feet (again the rules are in Figure 13.2.5) because the penalty for rolling first putts the wrong speed is so severe.

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

Extract from the book:

All that said it’s easier to three-putt a downhiller than an uphill putt of the same length. The reason is speed: Downhill putts require a more delicate touch to control rolling speed. If you stop and think about that (which I’ll bet you never have) it’s pretty obvious. But obvious isn’t factual and obvious doesn’t give you a sense of the severity of the problem. So look at Figure 2.6.2 which shows how far five balls on a flat green will roll when putted with perfect-length backswings made with a pendulum stroke to produce putts of 3 6 9 12 and 15 feet. Of course they roll 3 6 9 12 and 15 feet. Using my True Roller I can produce the same release energies for putts of 3 6 9 12 and 15 feet. In both series of putts the spread of distances between the shortest and longest ball is 12 feet (15 feet – 3 feet).

The True Roller

Years ago I created the True Roller a simple ramp device to control the direction and speed of simulated putts (a 1978 photo is shown below). It turns out to be one of the most useful devices I’ve come up with for rolling balls and testing on the greens.

The first True Roller was eight feet long and very cumbersome but later versions have included laser-aiming attachments refined ball-release mechanisms and a level to ensure that the release ramp is always perfectly vertical and releasing balls in a straight line (Figure 2.6.4). The original intent of the True Roller was to simulate putts near the end of their rolls because the initial release of a ball differed from the initial roll of the putted balls (putts start out slightly lofted and sliding along the grass whereas the ball is already rolling as it leaves the True Roller). However after we tested and calibrated the True Roller to simulate putts we found no essential differences in putting results between balls putted versus those released from the True Roller.

You will see many balls and test results from balls rolled from the True Roller in this book. Remember that the True Roller is simply starting each ball in a given direction at the given speed. And that is what putting is all about.

Look next at the top of Figure 2.6.5 which shows how far the same five balls will roll on an uphill putt (released from the True Roller each with the same energy as before). The uphill putts stop closer together (the distance between the longest and shortest balls is 7.5 feet) indicating that on uphill putts balls tend to roll closer to the same distance. This means the roll of an uphill putt is less sensitive to the length of the stroke than putts on a level surface. The lesson is that even if you don’t hit all of your uphill putts the right speed be sure to get them past the hole.

Notice that the left elbow is still locked at this point. The elbow is just crossing the imaginary line that you have created between your eyes and your belly button. Remember, try to stop your elbow at this point. This is the point where your wrists will start to flip through the ball.Also notice the angle between the left arm and the club shaft is almost the same as it was at setup.
