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:

Notice I said to take at least three practice swings or up to a total of six maximum if you need them. The purpose of your routine is to create the perfect preview stroke one you truly believe will hole the putt. If you don’t believe in your stroke then you haven’t completed your job no matter how many strokes you have taken. At this point to avoid slow play you may have to compromise and putt with less than your best possible effort. But that’s not something to be encouraged.

Establish Your Practice Framework 227

If you sense that you are taking too many strokes and taking too much time then bear down. Focus get into it concentrate! Don’t be lazy and don’t ever be so relaxed that you need more than six practice swings. That means you aren’t trying hard enough to focus on your “job ” not paying enough attention to what you are supposed to be doing.

Forget Stroke Mechanics

Your routine has nothing to do with your stroke mechanics. The purpose of a putting routine is to prepare you to putt with all decisions already made. You don ‘t want to he thinking or still making decisions about your grip or how much the putt will break or anything other than repeating your perfect preview stroke. During your routine you must eliminate everything other than focusing on feeling and seeing the perfect-size preview stroke to roll the perfect-speed putt.

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

Extract from the book:

My belief is that you need to be fit for a putter before you waste too much time trying to work around a bad one. You may or may not end up changing it later but at least you can make some good improvements until you decide. The details of fitting a putter to your body and stroke will be discussed in section 11.6.

4.12 The Mind’s Role in Putting Stroke Mechanics

There is one last ingredient I ‘ve yet to touch on in this long list of putting factors. And that is the mind. How important is the mind when putting? You can’t move the golf ball even 1/32 of an inch with just your mind. Your mind doesn’t hold the putter. However that doesn’t mean the mind has no power because the mind can stop your body from accomplishing something in a heartbeat. Your mind must believe you can make a putt at least that the possibility exists . . . or you won’t. You must realize that of course you “can” make the putt. It really is possible. Always remember what one of my favorite putters in the whole world (Dave Stockton) said to me: “I never met a putt I couldn’t make.”

Your mind controls your body your body controls your putter and the way you swing your putter controls the starting conditions of your putt. And controlling a putt’s starting conditions is all any golfer can do. None of us can control the conditions on the green the wind footprints or Lady Luck. All we can do is get our mind to let us put the best possible stroke on the ball; then we have to live with whatever happens.

So forget using your conscious mind to help your putting. What you want working for you is your subconscious mind that part that handles images and memories. Of course the first time you try something you need your conscious mind to think about it. But after you’ve made good strokes and holed putts many times it can become a habit totally and completely controlled without any conscious thought. That’s when putting becomes controlled by the subconscious mind.

Now how do you do this? By far the most important thing in your mind prior to the putting stroke should be an image in your mind’s eye of the stroke you want to make. This should he a clear picture – based on your observations reading of the green and knowledge of the conditions – first of what the putt is going to do and then how you are going to stroke it so it does exactly that. The subconscious sees this stroke image and uses it to tell the body what to do. Obviously you want this image to be of a good stroke and to be clear strong and proper so it gets the right idea to the body about executing a good putting stroke.

The importance of this image is something we deal with in depth in our schools. We go to great lengths to get golfers to see and feel in their mind’s eye what their perfect strokes are going to be like before they try to make them. Because once you see and know exactly what you are trying to do and have a clear picture of it in your mind’s eye it is so much easier to do it.

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

Extract from the book:

This is the final setup position. The back is still straight. All you need to do is bend at the waist until the club touches the ground. As you can see, the arms are still stretched out, and the hands are hanging straight down from the shoulders. They seem lower than waist-level, but the relationship between the arms and chest has not changed. Your legs remain in a fixed position, while you move the arms and chest together to the ball. This is the key to a good, simple setup.
