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?

It also may be when you finally understand why you don’t want to supply putting power with your hands and wrists: This kind of power overwhelms the small kinesthetic messages of feel that are there and removes your chance of benefiting from that “icing.”

A way to heighten your feel for the physical (kinesthetic) sensations of putting is to make practice strokes with your eyes closed. Begin your usual routine keeping your eyes open for your first practice stroke looking at the hole and seeing the distance. Then close both eyes ending all visual input to your brain. Make a practice stroke and feel what you expect the results of that putt would be. 1)o this several times until you’re comfortable with the feel of your stroke then open your eyes step in perform your ritual and stroke your putt. Creating a preview stroke with your eyes closed is the opposite of putting with gloves on as it forces you to feel through your hands where the sensations are weak. It will also convince you that putting with “dead-hands” (no power supplied by hands) allows you to achieve maximum sensitivity and feel from your hands in the putting stroke.

Too-High Drill “Too High” is a game we use to help our students learn (1) what it feels like to play too much break and (2) how to float putts in from the high side when you want to be sure to avoid a three-putt. You can play Too High by yourself or in competition with any number of players. Find a hole on a pronounced slope and mark the ball-hole line through the center of the hole extending in both directions along the line you intend to putt from (Figure 13.3.5). You can putt from anywhere along or beyond this line with one rule: The ball that stops closest to the hole without going into the hole or below the line wins.

Several winners arc shown in Figure 13.3.6 but any ball that falls in the hole while playing Too High cannot win. (If the ball falls in it wasn ‘t too high was it?) But holing out doesn’t necessarily mean you lose if all the other balls also roll in or below the line.

You’ll be surprised how difficult this game can be. On fast greens or severe slopes leaving putts above the hole can be a real challenge. But getting the feel for making haPPen what you want to happen will serve you well on the course. To

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

Extract from the book:

When we talk about the “ball-hole” line for any putt we mean the straight line between where the ball sits (before you putt it) and the hole (Figure 4.1.2). How ever because the hole is always your ultimate target some golfers call this their

“target line.” But many golfers use “target line” to describe the line between their ball and the point at which they are aiming the line on which they hope to start the putt rolling. But you seldom try both to aim and start your ball rolling along a straight line at the hole and expect it to keep rolling on that line because most putts break at least a little bit.

Therefore it is clearer to refer to this direction as your hall-hole line. Also realize that the ball-hole line extends forever in both directions (as shown) and that it is the ball-hole line that most golfers walk to and stand on behind their ball as they first try to read the break of their putts.

Standing behind the ball trying to read the green most golfers decide how much they think the putt is going to break and then where they are going to aim. They select a point or a direction where they intend to start their putt and we refer to the line from the ball to that point or direction as the “Aimline ” or desired initial starting line of the putt (Figure 4.1.3). It’s best called the Aimline because it is the line along which you align your body feet and (it’s hoped) your stroke because you want to start the ball rolling along that line. It ‘s where you’re aiming. If everything was figured properly the ball starts on your Aimline and will roll the proper speed and break (because of the slope of the green) gently into the cup.

The entire path that your putt takes is the “ball track” (left side of Figure 4.1.4). It may remind you of the “action track” sometimes used on television to show how a ball has traveled. The distances between the balls on the track indicate how fast (relatively) the putt is traveling: Farther apart means it is rolling faster; closer together and it is rolling slower. A detailed ball track provides an accurate understanding of a putt’s entire motion – both where and how fast it was going – better even than the same putt recorded and played back on videotape.

The amount or size of the “break” played on a putt is a measure of the difference between the direction you aim and start the putt rolling and where you want it to go. We define the amount of break as the distance between the Aimline (up by the hole) and the nearest edge of the hole measured along a line between the two (right side of Figure 4.1.4). The actual amount the ball breaks (curves) is something different because the ball track ideally curves into the center of the hole. But golfers refuse to deal with that detail. When golfers say they are playing one inch of break what they mean is that their Aimline passes one inch outside the edge of the hole as shown in Figure 4.1.5. Technically they expect the putt to break 3¼ inches – one inch plus half the diameter of the hole (2½ inches) – but they insist on thinking and saying that they are playing one inch of break.

Golfers the world over have made a tacit agreement to think of break as measured from the edge of the hole rather than the center. Unless the putt breaks less than half the width of the hole. Then we refer to it as breaking from somewhere inside the cup such as an “inside left edge” or “right center ” to the center of the hole. Only then do we acknowledge that our target is the center of 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.
