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:

Yes this is more trouble than your usual putting practice. But it is also the best way to learn to make breaking putts. I recommend you use Elevated Aimlines and blocking plates on all your breaking-putt practice for at least three to six months all the while concentrating solely on making the ball start on the right line at the right speed (because that’s what good putting is all about). Once you get the Elevated Aimline set for the true break keep your blocking plate sitting just a quarter

338 Develop Your Artistic Senses (Feel Touch Green-Reading) of an inch above a ball on that line guarding against any subconscious compensations. After practicing this way for a while your subconscious will begin to learn that the best way to hole breaking putts will be with no compensations to your pure-in-line-square stroke starting putts on the true-break Aimline.

Read Greens Better Make More Putts

If you practice this way (without compensations) while simultaneously learning to read greens better you are well on your way to becoming a great putter. This system works because you learn a noncompensating in-line stroke and learn to read greens better at the same time. This system works because when you do both correctly you are rewarded by making more putts. This is in contrast to what has happened over the years to golfers who worked hard to learn simple noncompensating strokes then found they didn’t work (they missed too many putts) when they took them to the golf course and continued to underread the break in their putts. Of course they didn’t realize that their poor green-reading was the cause of the problem.

By being open-minded understanding about subconscious compensations and learning how to putt on greens without them you open the door for your conscious mind to feel free to read the proper (true) break. When you do both (read true break and use noncompensating strokes) you make putts. With accurate (true break) Aimlines when you make better strokes – with no compensations and solid impact a square face angle through impact and better touch – your putts go into the hole. As you continue to practice making noncompensating strokes and the better you read the true break of your putts the more putts you will roll into the center of the hole.

This situation allows you to commit to that simple noncompensating stroke

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

Extract from the book:

A student in one of our Scoring Game Schools told me a story. In a laboratory devoted to the methodology of learning scientists were studying how pigeons learn to feed themselves from pellet dispensers. In one cage of pigeons they placed a number of dispensers all of which released one pellet every time a pigeon bumped or stepped on the release lever. Every time the lever was hit a pellet fell out. It took just two days for every pigeon in that cage to learn how to feed itself: hit the lever get a pellet.

There was another cage of pigeons which had the same number of identical-looking pellet dispensers. But these dispensers worked differently. They released pellets randomly. Sometimes pellets were released without the levers being touched. Sometimes they were released when the lever was touched once. And sometimes when the lever was touched nothing would happen. In time some of the pigeons thought that when they lifted their right wing a pellet was released. Some of the pigeons thought that if they chirped they would get a pellet. And some of the pigeons believed that if they turned in circles in front of the dispenser they would get a pellet. In two months none of the pigeons learned to feed themselves. In fact it was humorous watching the second cage: every pigeon practicing a different move hoping to release a pellet.

It reminds me of a practice putting green filled with golfers. One golfer is prac ticing a new grip. Another has widened his stance and is bending over more than he used to while his friend is trying the split-hand grip he saw on television. An other golfer is trying to learn a short backswing and “pop” stroke. All these golfers practicing something that they actually did just before they happened to make a putt hoping it will help them make another one.

And that is what you see if you look at many putting greens today. Golfers practicing practicing and practicing – who knows what they are practicing? – all hoping their putting will improve. Some of them practice a different thing every day and use a different stroke in every round. Some golfers even use several differ ent strokes during one round. Yes sir-ee they remind me of a bunch of pigeons!

Something else you need to think about before actually beginning to work on your stroke are the answers to a few questions. They are important questions but only if you want to know just how good your putting can get: (1) How good are the world’s best putters? (2) How well do you putt now? (3) How good can one get at putting? (4) How good will your putting be in the future?

Let me answer these as best I can:

I believe the best putters in the world are playing on the PGA Tour. My proof is the results of the first two World Putting Championships where the Tour pros were seriously challenged by some Senior Tour players several LPGA Tour players and a number of amateurs both young and old. However the PGA Tour players placed higher as a group than any other.

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.
