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:

A way to heighten your feel for the physical (kinesthetic) sensations of putting is to make practice strokes with your eyes closed. Begin your usual routine keeping your eyes open for your first practice stroke looking at the hole and seeing the distance. Then close both eyes ending all visual input to your brain. Make a practice stroke and feel what you expect the results of that putt would be. 1)o this several times until you’re comfortable with the feel of your stroke then open your eyes step in perform your ritual and stroke your putt. Creating a preview stroke with your eyes closed is the opposite of putting with gloves on as it forces you to feel through your hands where the sensations are weak. It will also convince you that putting with “dead-hands” (no power supplied by hands) allows you to achieve maximum sensitivity and feel from your hands in the putting stroke.

Too-High Drill “Too High” is a game we use to help our students learn (1) what it feels like to play too much break and (2) how to float putts in from the high side when you want to be sure to avoid a three-putt. You can play Too High by yourself or in competition with any number of players. Find a hole on a pronounced slope and mark the ball-hole line through the center of the hole extending in both directions along the line you intend to putt from (Figure 13.3.5). You can putt from anywhere along or beyond this line with one rule: The ball that stops closest to the hole without going into the hole or below the line wins.

318 Develop Your Artistic Senses (Feel Touch Green-Reading) downhill slider I play nine feet of break trying to stop putts above the ball-hole li ne as close to the hole as possible.

Several winners arc shown in Figure 13.3.6 but any ball that falls in the hole while playing Too High cannot win. (If the ball falls in it wasn ‘t too high was it?) But holing out doesn’t necessarily mean you lose if all the other balls also roll in or below the line.

You’ll be surprised how difficult this game can be. On fast greens or severe slopes leaving putts above the hole can be a real challenge. But getting the feel for making haPPen what you want to happen will serve you well on the course. To

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

Extract from the book:

Of course good touch and feel also require a proper read of the green knowing what will happen to your putt as it rolls. Think of green-reading as having a good road map for your journey. A good map or good directions can make the trip easy but a bad map with poor directions can turn the simplest trip into a nightmare.

So you need a map enough gas and the knowledge of how hard to step on the gas pedal along the way. You need all these things in concert to have a good trip. And you need good feel touch and green-reading skills also working together to putt well. Leave one out or do one poorly and it will he the same as losing your way on your Thanksgiving trip. Feel touch and green-reading are separate skills essentially different in nature yet each needs to be developed to provide the best result. And in case I ‘ve confused you that result is to roll the ball into the hole.

5.2 Touch and Feel Are in the Mind’s Eye

The skill bases for your touch and feel (green-reading will be discussed in Chapter 7) are intermingled in your mind. They are also intermingled in that they have a combined effect on putting results. But each is a separate skill which can be learned and developed over time.

Touch is in your head but it begins with knowing what your putt looks like and remembering (knowing based on past experience) how much power (the size or intensity of stroke) was required in the past for similar putts. Touch is an acquired skill based on past experiences. It resides in your memory bank and plays a part in creating the mind’s-eye picture of the size of stroke you need.

Before you can develop a good feel for a putt you need to have a good idea for how long it is and how much power will be required to roll it the proper speed and distance: In other words you need to have touch. Given that feel for the putt involves having a good idea of how to apply the power which will be needed to roll the ball at the optimum speed along that line to allow it to break into the hole. Having good feel for a putt is having the idea or picture in your mind’s eye of how the stroke will look and feel in both rhythm and intensity as it rolls the ball to the hole. So a part of feel is in your head. Feel also involves a kinesthetic awareness for the violence (or nonviolence) of your swing and knowing the physical sensation to expect at impact including the vibrations that will travel up the shaft after the putter strikes the ball. It is based on the feel of your collected experience from thousands of swings you’ve made on previous putts and the results they produced. This feel is produced in your nerve endings fingers arms and shoulders in the muscles of all of these entities as well as in your brain and memory.

Is one part of feel more important than any other? I don’t know. But more to the point I’m not sure I care. Because I do know that all these factors are necessary for good putting and the end result feel ultimately is experiential. You’ve got to do it lots of times to learn it and know it.
