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:

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.

11.5 Flow-Lines

Most golfers find that the best putting setup is one in which all the flow-lines of their body are aligned parallel to their Aimline (Figure 11.5.1). Flow-lines – imaginary lines running through key parts of your body – are important because the stroke the putterhead and the ball move naturally in these same directions if the

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

Extract from the book:

For most golfers to improve their scores it is often easier to reduce their number of three-putts than it is to increase their number of one-putts. This is generally true for golfers with handicaps greater than 20 although it is even true for some very fine lower-handicap players. As you can see in Figure 2.9.1 the length of the most frequent first putt on greens hit from outside 60 yards is 38 feet. (This distance varies a little with the handicap of the players measured but obviously there are many more long first putts than short ones.) This figure also shows that the most frequent first putt to follow shots hit from inside 60 yards is an 18-footer. If you combine these two curves and add in all the second and third putts that become necessary after the first putt is missed you can see a typical value for the number of putts of each length golfers face per round over a season of golf (Figure 2.9.2).

Now look at the conversion curve for this group of 15- to 25-handicap golfers (Figure 2.9.3) and the frequency with which they three-putt versus the putt distance (Figure 2.9.4). By comparing these data you can see the importance of making short putts as well as learning that you can save several strokes per round by eliminating three-putts from outside 30 feet. This means that you shouldn’t practice only short putts; the long ones are also important. And you must stop three-putting those long ones if you want to be a good putter.

For those not familiar with “lag putting ” some explanations:

• To lag a putt is to minimize thoughts of holing it instead concentrating on stopping the ball as close to the proper distance and as close to the hole as possible thus minimizing the possibility of three-putting (which is first priority).

Problems on the Greens 31

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

After we get through the remaining sections, you will understand that this will change your swing plane a bit. Your swing plane will become more horizontal, the straighter you stand up. Please realize that nothing else should change. You will swing each of your clubs in exactly the same fashion (found below). This repositioning at setup will have a huge effect on the outcome of your shot, so please take some time to see where you are the most comfortable.
