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:

Establish Your Practice Framework 231 and/or body in a series of motions that you can see and feel. If these movements are out of rhythm you can abort the stroke by backing off walking away and starting all over again.

If you can’t execute your preputt ritual with good rhythm and timing you almost certainly won’t be ready to execute a good putting stroke either. I’ve changed my ritual since my last book on putting Putt Like the Pros to make it last less than five seconds. While every golfer’s ritual should be something he feels comfortable doing at a rhythm that fits his personality I’ll show you mine as an example.

My ritual is short and sweet done to a count of five at a cadence of 80 beats per minute. But rather than counting I say the following words to myself: “down look look back through” (moving from left to right in the photographs in Figure 11.4.1). Just before starting my ritual I lift my putter a quarter of an inch off the ground; this is my trigger which tells both my mind and body that I’m ready to go ready to start my ritual and strike my putt. It says that I ‘ve completed my routine committed to my preview stroke moved in from my preview stroke looked at the hole once to make sure I moved in properly and I’m ready to go (the trigger occurs after I’ve moved into my putting setup just before 1 start my five-count ritual).

In the first photograph you can see my putter up off the ground which is my trigger. In the next frame which occurs with the first count of my ritual I tap my putter “down.” Next I look” down my Aimline. Then I look” back down at the ball followed by starting the stroke (moving my putter “back” to the top of the backswing). The final step is “through ” my through-stroke which I hold at its finish until my putt stops rolling. Down look look back through. That’s pretty simple. You should be aware that these two “looks” are not the same kind of looks you make when you want to see how far the hole is. The ritual looks are glances meant to move

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.

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

Extract from the book:

School students turn (top) slide (middle) and reverse (bottom) their bodies during their putting stroke motions.

The final power source is the best power source the gentle swinging of the arms (which also involves the shoulders). Think about a grandfather clock in which the pendulum swings back and forth with a gentle constant rhythmic motion. Now imagine your arms are connected at your shoulders at one end and at the putter at the other end forming a triangle as shown in Figure 4.5.3. Imagine letting this triangle become the pendulum of a grandfather clock (Figure 4.5.4) swinging back and forth with the same gentle constant motion. This is what I call a pendulum putting stroke and it’s the best stroke I know because it is the most easily repeatable and predictable (plus additional benefits as you will soon see).

A pendulum stroke works under pressure because adrenaline-filled muscles don’t get to determine how far the ball rolls. In this stroke putting speed and roll are determined solely by the length of the stroke motion. As a result if you practice controlling speed this way you can be sure that it will work on the course and under pressure the same way. And that’s what you want.

4.6 Putter Path Is a Small Factor

I’m fairly sure there are almost as many different putting paths as there are golfers. And it seems there are as many ways to stand over (address) a putt too. Even for the same golfer each day’s stroke path seems to he different from the last with some golfers changing their paths from straight to breaking putts and changing again from a right-to-left breaker to a left-to-right breaker. Common sense should tell you that changing this often can’t be a good idea; my putting mantra – “simpler is better” – guarantees that the more different putting strokes you employ the worse your problems on the green.

The most practiced putting fundamental is the putter path. However my testing shows that path is actually one of the least significant factors in good putting. Yet when I ask golfers on the practice green what they are working on the most common answer is always “the path of my putter.”

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

Extract from the book:

Golf Tuition Derllys Golf Club

The completed grip with both “V” shapes pointed toward the right shoulder. Note the “V” shapes are parallel with each other.Hopefully, you already have a grip that closely resembles this one. There are some slight variations, but this grip is standard for the most part. It should produce the best results. However, if you have a different grip than this, and you are more comfortable using it, you may continue using it. A grip is hard to change, and this one may feel really uncomfortable to you; however, benefits will come if you embrace this new grip. The “Simple Golf Swing” will most likely provide to you the desired results, even if you use your current grip. However, if you are still having problems when you get through the system, please incorporate the above grip method into your swing.
