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:

The Subconscious Fights

I believe this battle between the conscious and subconscious minds is the reason golfers feel uncomfortable standing over many of their putts. Consciously they’re thinking about playing three inches of break outside the left edge while subconsciously they are aiming their putter and body for a putt that breaks at least 6 inches.

Now playing 70 percent of the break is much better than playing 30 percent but it still isn’t enough. Yes the subconscious compensation corrects for a major portion of most players’ inability to read greens but even correcting to 70 percent means most golfers still should miss their putts on the low side of the hole.

But again this is not the end of the story.

7.4 The In-Stroke Correction Now take a look at what happened when these golfers actually made their strokes. Remember they professed to playing less than a third of the true-break then stood over their putts and aimed for 65 to 75 percent of the true-break value. Then believe it or not as they swung their putters they subconsciously made in-stroke compensations to pull or push their putts onto a starting line at between 85 and 95 percent of the true break (Figure 7.4.1). It was amazing but it happened almost every time and still happens whenever I run the test. When I first started researching this behavior I thought “How could golfers not know they are doing this?” I’ve since learned a very important lesson: In golf the subconscious always wins. Golfers do many things they are not aware of. They don’t swing the way they think they swing (for proof watch some one’s face the first time he sees his swing on video) and they don’t play anywhere near the same break they think they’re playing when they putt.

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

Extract from the book:

• Finish your practice with putts derstandable detail in later chapters) I’ve thrown a of less than six feet focusing fair amount of information at you and we have yet only on rolling them into the to even begin examining the putting stroke. How- cup at a firm brisk pace. ever please don’t be discouraged about the com plexity of putting or the confusion you might be feeling right now. You need to understand the realities of putting so you’ll be more tolerant when unexplained things happen to you on the greens. You need to believe – no you need to know – that there is no net luck in putting no matter how your putts seem to be rolling bouncing or deflecting that day.

Once you understand the reality of the problems of the game and the often cruel statistical nature of its results you will be better prepared to proceed with your learning program which will lead to your improved putting. Always remain alert to the importance of immediate accurate reliable feedback and what it can do for your practice and on-course putting. So take heart and realize your better scores will come from more areas than simply improving your stroke mechanics. There’s much more to good putting than that physical stroke motion of yours.

Problems on the Greens 33

There are many different ways for golfers to putt. Having said that it does not mean that I’m advocating all or any of these methods. But it’s important that you are aware of the choices a golfer has and even a few he doesn’t unless he doesn’t care about the Rules of Golf (which I think you must if you’re going to he serious about this game).

The old adage “different strokes for different folks” is very meaningful because some putting strokes work better than others for certain players while no one stroke works perfectly for everyone. While no strokes even perfect ones make all their putts some really awful strokes do make some putts. And sometimes the differences between good and bad strokes are very difficult to measure or see. But believe me the differences are there.

Before I discuss some of the many methods you could employ let me pass on to you the one thought the one axiom that governs all my theories on putting. It is this: Simpler is better. You’ll find research test results in many different disciplines that validate this conclusion. It is certainly true in almost all of sports. Why? Because regardless of your level of talent the less you give yourself to do (and still get the job done) the more consistently you can learn to do it. Whereas the more compensations that must he made in your putting stroke the more difficult it will be to repeat in such a way that it actually makes your putts. The more complex a putting stroke (that is the more compensations that must be made to make it effective) the more uncertain (or inconsistent) its results by any golfer regardless of skill level.

All this may sound routine and you may have heard it many times before but that doesn’t mean it isn’t true. And more important that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be taken seriously. So there’s no question about it: In putting simpler is better.

Really flip your right wrist through the ball. This action will give you a lot more club head speed. It also eliminates any slice that you may have had because your left elbow isn’t flying on the follow through anymore. So, essentially you’re keeping the left elbow close to the body now. Before it was your right, and now it’s your left elbow that you are keeping tight to your body. Keep your left elbow close to your body, and flip the right wrist through the ball at the same time. You should feel the extra power this gives you.
