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:

232 Establish Your Practice Framework my head in the cadence of my natural rhythm to establish the rhythm for my stroke before I make it. And you should leave room in your ritual to build in one or two personal idiosyncrasies; you’re likely to develop at least one. Most pros do. Nick Price for example sits his putter in front of his ball (luring his preshot ritual.

Practice the Way You Intend to Play

Always use your preputt routine your natural putting rhythm and your ritual during your practice sessions so you practice the way you want to make the most important putt of your life. Then when that crucial pressure-packed putt comes along your stroke can be controlled by your subconscious a natural reaction to your ritual a simple repetition of the preview stroke you’ve just seen and felt.

To make your rhythm routine and ritual a habit you need to have repeated them many times over and over the same way every time. And there’s no better time or place to make these repetitions than when you’re building and grooving your putting stroke mechanics. If you create your rhythm routine and ritual first then use them throughout all training and practice periods the powerful putting game you develop will be pressure-proof on the course.

Many golfers spend years developing their stroke mechanics only to putt miserably whenever they face pressure. This happens because pressure shuts down the conscious mind forcing the subconscious to revert to whatever feels natural. If you practice and build a putting game as I’ve described – starting with rhythm routine and ritual – the stroke that your subconscious reverts to under pressure will be your natural stroke the one you built your best stroke.

Now you’re ready to begin improving the more traditional parts of your putting game. But a last word about ritual and routine. Yours need to work for you and no one else. Don’t copy mine or think anyone else’s will work for you. Get on the practice putting green and think about what you’d like to do before facing the most important putts in your future. Without thinking about stroke mechanics find a rhythm routine and ritual that work for you. None of the Tour professionals I work with use my ritual or routine. That may be where they start but they modify them to fit their personalities and rhythms. You should – actually you must – do the same. The rest of your putting life depends on it.

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

Extract from the book:

Years ago I created the True Roller a simple ramp device to control the direction and speed of simulated putts (a 1978 photo is shown below). It turns out to be one of the most useful devices I’ve come up with for rolling balls and testing on the greens.

The first True Roller was eight feet long and very cumbersome but later versions have included laser-aiming attachments refined ball-release mechanisms and a level to ensure that the release ramp is always perfectly vertical and releasing balls in a straight line (Figure 2.6.4). The original intent of the True Roller was to simulate putts near the end of their rolls because the initial release of a ball differed from the initial roll of the putted balls (putts start out slightly lofted and sliding along the grass whereas the ball is already rolling as it leaves the True Roller). However after we tested and calibrated the True Roller to simulate putts we found no essential differences in putting results between balls putted versus those released from the True Roller.

You will see many balls and test results from balls rolled from the True Roller in this book. Remember that the True Roller is simply starting each ball in a given direction at the given speed. And that is what putting is all about.

Look next at the top of Figure 2.6.5 which shows how far the same five balls will roll on an uphill putt (released from the True Roller each with the same energy as before). The uphill putts stop closer together (the distance between the longest and shortest balls is 7.5 feet) indicating that on uphill putts balls tend to roll closer to the same distance. This means the roll of an uphill putt is less sensitive to the length of the stroke than putts on a level surface. The lesson is that even if you don’t hit all of your uphill putts the right speed be sure to get them past the hole.

Problems on the Greens 25

That gives them a chance to go in and the longest ones will probably stop near enough to the hole to leave no-brainers coming back.

Now look at the bottom of Figure 2.6.5 to see how far these same putts roll given the same amount of starting energy on a straight downhill putt. There ‘s a big difference from the level and uphill putts. Of course each downhill putt rolls farther but more important the spread of distances between balls has increased meaning the roll distance is more sensitive to energy input. Now the distance between the longest and shortest balls is 18 feet. So your downhill stroke has to be about three times more precise than your uphill stroke to stop a putt at the right distance. When putting downhill make a stroke of the wrong speed and you’ll have trouble making your next putt.

Focus on using your spine as your axis now. Turn both shoulders and sides directly around your spine. Keep your left arm locked, and your left wrist locked. Although difficult to see from this camera-angle, the triangle is still perfectly in tact.
