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:

Modern research has proven that the physical motion of putting is not difficult to do; in fact it is the simplest action in golf. If you can hit the ball at all with a driver you have more than enough coordination and talent to be a very good putter. But putting is difficult to learn to do. Good putting involves doing many

Wrap-Up 383 things right as well as many things “not wrong ” and that makes it seem complex. But difficult? No not really.

You Putt As You Prepare Yourself to Putt

In golf as in life you become what you see yourself becoming if you prepare yourself to become that way. For reasons I don’t understand golfers expect golf to be easier than it is. (Maybe they want golf to be easier than it is which I do understand.) Golfers think they can buy a better game or if they take one lesson and learn how to swing a club the game will become easy.

They expect that after they learn how to hit a shot and hit it once they should be able to do it perfectly every time for the rest of their careers. I’m sorry but that’s not golf.

Steve Elkington (Figure 15.6.1) is one of the best players I’ve ever worked with. He knows how to hit all the shots and that includes putting. But as talented as he is athletically he still practices his putting stroke and he still hits all the other shots four to six hours a day six days a week and he plays 18 holes almost every day.

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

Extract from the book:

Once your shoulders are in place your attention should turn to the flow-line through your forearms as they are next most important in determining how your putter will swing through the impact zone. While all of this may sound very simple and in truth it can be for some golfers it does not turn out that way. A sure sign of trouble is the golfer who carries his right (trailing) forearm above and outside the perfect forearm plane as shown in Figure 4.10.9. This is the forearm power position from which it is difficult for the right forearm to not move over and in front of the left forearm through impact. I can assure you that most golfers who putt from this forearm position miss putts to the left when they get excited anxious or scared.

Forearm rotation is probably the most frequent killer of putting strokes I see in my schools. The forearm-power position is easy to get into because it feels natural. Well it is natural but it’s still wrong and it is something you have to resist.

Some golfers even roll the right forearm over after starting with their forearms level (Figure 4.10.10). This happens because they rotate their forearms for every other shot in golf and it feels like the natural thing to do in their putting stroke too. Watch out for this trap! There is absolutely no reason to try to supply power or directional control to your putter from the rotation of your forearms. If you let your forearms swing back and through straight down the line and imagine main taining your forearms ‘ perfect parallel-left alignment you ll feel a perfectly natural putting stroke. And the back of your left hand and your putterface will remain square to your intended line at all times.

Eyes Hips Knees and Feet

The alignment of your eyes hips knees and feet flow-lines is important to your putting only in as much as they affect your brain or the orientation of your shoulder and forearm flow-lines. The problem is they can and do affect them for some golfers.

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 101

I say affect your brain because your eyes process information and feed it to your brain at all times. If you perceive that you need to push your putt out to the right because your eye flow-line is aimed too far left then your brain will make your body do it. When you are trying to perceive distance your eye-line should he horizontal in the binocular position (the way we usually look at things with our head up) to enhance depth perception (left side of Figure 4.10.H). However when you are looking along your Aimline to perceive the flow motion of your putter and ball along it your eye-line should he parallel-left (Figure 4.10.11 right).

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

Here is a view from the front. The goal of this photo is to show that there is no lateral movement. Simply rotating your right shoulder around your spine.*Please note that you should NOT be cocking your wrists at the end of your backswing. While this may add a bit of power, it will totally throw off your timing. The results of a wrist cock are slices, hooks, fat shots, etc.
