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:

15.3 The Learning Environment

If you’re going to learn to putt better you’ve got to: times to make it a habit

You’ll notice I’ve used the term “learn” a number of times. Learning is what improving is all about. Many golfers want to change and improve their putting but they don’t realize that to change successfully and reliably they need to learn

Wrap-Up 375 how and what to change. It ‘s either that or hope for long-term good luck which isn’t likely to happen too often.

Don’t think learning is difficult. Learning how to aim is entirely instinctive once the golfer receives proper feedback (and he or she stops aiming based on where putts are missed). Learning how to make a pure-in-line-square stroke isn’t difficult. Nor is learning to keep the putterface from rotating open and closed. Becoming aware of how putts break isn’t difficult. Something many people never realize (and not just in golf but in school at work in life) is that learning often doesn’t involve much thinking. If you are exposed to the right information (feedback) you can’t help but learn. It’s automatic – your subconscious does it for you.

Speaking of the subconscious realize that it is a very powerful force that can be used to help you improve or if you don’t use it correctly will keep you from improving. The subconscious will take over if given half a chance so you want the “habits” that it reverts to (under pressure when you’re nervous when you’re scared) to be good ones. And the way to get good habits into your subconscious is to understand what they are and then practice them – properly.

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

Extract from the book:

Lag putters (golfers who always seem to be lagging their putts) usually leave more than half of their putts short which is not good when you are trying to hole the maximum percentage of makable putts (those inside 30 feet). But to be a good lag putter from outside 35 feet is one of putting’s

At the end of step two, you reached the top of your backswing. As soon, as you get there, start your downswing. As you start the downswing, make sure to remind yourself to keep your arms “connected” to your chest and shoulders. Stay connected all the way through the ball. Your hands and arms only swing as the shoulders rotate. If you start your downswing by rotating your chest, without starting to swing your arms, you will most definitely end up slicing the ball. If you swing your arms before rotating your chest, you will most likely hook the ball. Staying connected will always produce the straightest ball.
