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:

There are many acceptable ways to hold a putter such as the “reverse-overlap ” “finger-down-the-shaft ” “split-grip ” “equal-hand ” “push-hand ” and “baseball” grips (Figure 1L6.11). But without seeing you putt I can only suggest that you test and evaluate a few grips as you work to improve your stroke mechanics. Sometimes changing a grip can affect the path and face angle of your putter through impact; more on that in the next chapter.

Unusual Grips

Many players have found less conventional grips that work for them. These grips may be different but they have proven comfortable and consistent. Take for ex ample Corey Pavin s “opposed-palm ” grip (Figure 11.6.12). Corey s problem used to be missing to the left. Ile pulled putts until he turned his left hand as far left on the putter as possible which stopped the pulls because he couldn’t turn his left forearm any farther left during his stroke. But then he started pushing putts to the right. The solution was obvious: Turn the right hand as far to the right as possible. So with his palms “opposed ” he became a very fine putter winning the 1995 U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills putting that way.

While I said above that no one grip is best for everyone “left-hand-low” (which really should be called “lead-hand-low”) or “left-hand-low clamp” is one that I suggest every golfer try (Figure 11.6.13). Left-hand-low places the right forearm on-line with or slightly below the ideal forearm plane taking the right arm out of the “power position” and allowing the left arm to lead or pull the stroke through. Perhaps the best recommendation I know of for the left-hand-low grip is the list of Tour professionals who are now putting or have putted this way.

Establish Your Practice Framework 253

Occasionally uninformed golfers mistakenly refer to left-hand-low as “crosshanded” putting but a true crossed-handed grip (which I never recommend to anyone) is shown in Figure 11.6.14. Left-hand-low doesn’t work only for the pros. Only four years after taking up the game a young man named Bob Zeigenfuss (Figure 11.6.15) made the world finals of the 1997 World Putting Championship putting left-hand-low.

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

Extract from the book:

Let’s be sure that you understand the terms I’ve defined so far. You’ve cleaned your ball on the green and replaced it in front of your mark. Standing behind your ball on the ball-hole line you realize that if you putt directly along that line it will break to the left and miss below the hole. So you move slightly downhill from the

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 57 ball-hole line and try to imagine how far uphill to the right you must start your putt if you want to make it. You select an Aimline which runs about 28 inches outside the right edge of the hole you walk to the ball set up perfectly along your new Aimline and make practice strokes until ready. You execute the perfect stroke and your ball starts exactly on your Aimline. You guessed the right amount of break (28 inches) and gave your putt the perfect speed so as it rolls it breaks gently to the left and into the center of the cup. Your ball track formed the perfect arc (Figure 4.1.6) the ball entered the exact center of the hole (centered relative to the ball track) and all is right with the world.

4.2 Stroke Definitions

Where are you aiming? Sooner or later 1 ask that question of every golfer I work with. Aim is a critical aspect of putting (more on that later) and both you and I need to know not only where you are trying to aim (where you think you are aiming) but also where you are actually aiming your putter your stance and your stroke.

Technically when I refer to aim I am referring to a direction. The direction of your aim can be at a place like the edge of the hole or at an object such as a discolored piece of grass a spike mark or anything you can see and define. What you choose to aim at can be anywhere along your Aimline from just in front of the ball to alongside or even past the hole. Your aim can be one inch one ball three balls a foot or even 10 feet outside the right or left edge of the cup or it can be anywhere inside the cup. Only after you determine how much you expect your putt to break and define somewhere or something to aim at can the direction of your aim your Aimline be visualized located or marked on the green.

The track along which your putter travels is your “putter path. ” It can move straight back and straight through in-line with your Aimline it can cut across from outside-to-in or inside-to-out (shown in Figure 4.2.1) or it can loop around your Aimline. Golfers take their putters severely or slightly inside and outside their Aimlines waver along their Aimlines and sometimes incorporate a bit of all of the above into their putting paths. I believe there are almost as many distinct putter paths as there are golfers and I’m sure I haven’t seen them all.
