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:

After identifying a Dot-Spot mark the Face-line on your ball centered on the Dot-Spot which will make it exactly perpendicular to the Balance-line. This can get a little confusing so we use a hall mask (as shown in Figure 11.7.7) in the following procedure for marking balls:

Aiming Conclusion

Since the margin of error in putting is so small precise alignment is crucial which means it’s something you need to practice over and over. The best way to learn to aim is with a LazrAimer periodically practicing with it to train your brain what perfect alignment looks like. The Putting Track can teach you to aim if you use it long enough (and always set it up properly). If you don’t want to invest the money and time on either of these devices at least mark your balls with their Balance-lines and Face-lines and learn to use those lines to help you aim.

We’ve seen many students benefit from these improvements and odds are that you too will see your putting improve as you learn to aim better. But you definitely want to test these aiming aids on the practice green before you commit to them on the golf course. It takes a little more time to line up your Balance-line with your Aimline especially the first few times you give it a try so practice doing it on the practice putting green to keep your play timely on the course.

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

Extract from the book:

Many other grips are possible including the “open palm ” “left-hand-low ” “claw ” “fingertip ” and “equal-pressure” grips. How to best use these and other grips will be discussed in section 11.6 along with how you can develop the best grip for your putting stroke.

Lower-Body Motion and Looking

Almost all golfers unknowingly move their bodies during the putting stroke. Sometimes a lot usually just a little but almost always some which tells me it must be extremely difficult to eliminate (at least without hours and hours of practice). Try rotating your lower body around your spine in your putting address position and you will see it turns your upper body as well (especially your shoulders arms and putter) because your upper body is sitting on the lower (Figure 4.10.18). This also rotates your putterface angle adding an unknown uncontrollable and unwanted variable to the starting line of your putts.

Rotation isn’t the only lower-body motion to avoid. Some golfers sway back and forth as they putt (Figure 4.10.19). They probably don’t know they’re doing it but the ball doesn’t care what you do or don’t know. One forward inch of sway during a stroke will move your ball about one foot on the green. And that ‘s a foot you probably did not plan on.

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 107

A different kind of move is the “peek ” in which the golfer both turns and looks up in the middle of his stroke in an attempt to see the result. Probably the most famous peek was at the 1970 British Open at St. Andrews when Doug Sanders (Figure 4.10.20) missed a 2½-foot putt to drop into a tie with Jack Nicklaus who then beat him in the playoff.

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

Extract from the book:

First of all, it’s important that you realize that your grip will affect the results that you get. However, it’s not as complicated as the other systems make it out to be. First, grab the club with your right hand so the face of it is toward the target. Keep the face pointed toward the target, while placing your left hand on the bottom of the grip or handle. At this point you should be holding your left hand out flat, so that it is touching the bottom of the grip. Position the joint where your left pinky meets your palm directly underneath the handle of the club. Keep the pinky there and place the first joint in your left forefinger directly underneath the club. Now, do not lift your fingers up, bringing the grip of the club into your palm; instead, hold the handle steady with your left fingers and wrap your palm around the top of the grip. This is an important distinction. Again, don’t wrap the fingers towards the palm, but instead wrap your palm around the top of the club. Now, you should be able to easily place your left thumb directly on top of the club. This should form a V-shape where your left thumb and left forefinger meet. This V-shape should point directly to your right shoulder when it’s complete.
