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:

Develop Your Artistic Senses (Feel Touch Green-Reading) 309

Drawback to many different holes. You are penalized when you don’t roll the ball the proper speed rewarded when you do. It’s the judging of your speed and distance result after each putt (whether it stops in the Safe-Zone or not) that teaches your mind’s eye the proper touch for the future. And because of the penalty for finishing either short or more than 34 inches past you instinctively learn the touch required to roll putts 17 inches past the hole more frequently. This is the touch you want to carry over into all your putting for makable-range putts up to 35 feet.

Double-Safety-Drawback

This is the ultimate pressure drill for practicing touch on putts between 10 and 30 feet (again the rules are in Figure 13.2.5) because the penalty for rolling first putts the wrong speed is so severe.

This game also emphasizes the skill of holing 6-to 10-footers putts you often face whenever you play. It ‘s best to play Double-Safety-Drawback to a new hole every time: This makes your mind’s eye focus on a new putt a new distance and the touch for a new stroke each time.

Finally remember that it is of the utmost importance that you use your routine and ritual during all of these games to maximize on-course benefits later.

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

Extract from the book:

But there was more. If the grass was damp or I was putting against the grain the overspin didn’t take and the ball didn’t travel as far; when the grass was dry or when putting with the grain the spinning ball grabbed and jumped forward to roll widely divergent distances. So overspin if you could create it causes inconsistency. Which is why I say “Forget about it!”

Physical and Mental Factors

4.10 Ball Position Posture and Flow-Lines

In sections 4.4 through 4.9 the factors discussed are the building blocks involved with the swinging action of your putting stroke mechanics. From here on in this chapter the factors I’ll explain will be ones relating to your body mind and equipment. While all of these are less familiar and less popular to work on than the other fundamentals of stroke mechanics that doesn’t mean they won’t be important to your success on the greens.

For example say you employ a very unusual putting posture but it’s one you like and lets you execute a perfect stroke consistently and repeatedly. Then I say it’s absolutely acceptable. If it works and you like it it’s okay with me no matter how odd or unconventional it seems. However if anything about your unusual posture adversely affects one or more of the fundamentals of stroke mechanics then you should change it. So all of the following are important only in how they influence your stroke.

Ball Position

Any putting stroke that swings in an arc suspended from somewhere around your sternum (or some other spot between your shoulders) will have a bottom to its arc a low point a place where the sole of the club is closest to the ground. I have found that the best place to position the ball in your stance is approximately two inches ahead of this bottom point. At this spot you have the best chance of striking the ball on an ever-so-slight upward arc as your putter comes up from its lowest point (Figure 4.10.1). Striking the ball slightly on the upswing gets putts rolling on top of the grass without lofting them too high which produces bounce or hitting them down into the surface of the green so they squirt off to the right or left.

Golf Swing Tips

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

Extract from the book:

Golf Tuition Cotgrave Place Golf & Country Club

The chest and shoulders shouldn’t be turning, unless your arms are turning with them. In other words, you want to start your swing with a shoulder turn, but your arms should start swinging at EXACTLY the same time. They are an extension. They are connected. Furthermore, your arms shouldn’t be swinging unless your chest is rotating. Don’t start swinging your arms without starting the shoulder turn. They are connected. Your left elbow remains locked throughout the entire swing. When you complete your shoulder turn, your arms should stop as well. The goal will be to have your left arm exactly parallel to the ground. Your elbow is still locked. When it gets there…STOP. Do not continue to swing your arms.
