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:

It Is Amazing

Take a look at the in-stroke compensations. If you tried to think about them consciously trying to turn or correct your putterface angle and path during your stroke I don’t think you could do it. Yet there’s absolutely no question that your subconscious can and does do it all the time. And actually does it pretty well all things considered rerouting the putter so the starting line of your putt is almost (hut not quite) on the 100 percent correct line.

Green-Reading the 15th Building Block 149

Now here’s a final mind-blowing thought: Almost every putt any golfer makes is the result of this series of mistakes. If there’s any break at all (and I’ve already told you that almost every putt breaks at least a little hit) and if it ‘ s more than a tap-in then no matter what your intentions or how much time you spend sizing it up the putt that goes in is not a conscious result but a subconscious one. I’m not saying it’s lucky but the fact that a putt went in the hole is as much the result of forces you don’t recognize as those you do.

Let’s go through the steps again. When golfers read a putt they under-read its break. When they address a putt they subconsciously add more break to the read. When making the stroke they add still more break subconsciously making compensations that pull left-to-right putts and push right-to-left putts (for right-handed golfers) so the ball begins rolling on a line that almost gets it started on a line headed toward the true break. Now the ball is rolling and if they get lucky and it hits a footprint or two or if it ‘s stroked a little too hard (reducing the amount the ball actually breaks) there is a chance that the putt will find the hole.

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

Extract from the book:

Now relate these pendulums to putting strokes by attaching putters to the bottom of each pendulum. Pendulum B is what Harvey Penick prescribed: The golfer’s hands hang outside of his shoulder line (the suspension point) at some angle supported by the force B (shown by Justin Leonard in Figure 4.6.7). This puller will describe a curved path around the body like a screen door as long as no hand or arm muscles prevent it from doing so.

In Figure 4.6.8 Fuzzy Zoeller simulates pendulum C by holding his hands inside of his shoulders and at an angle to his suspension point. This putter clearly rotates from outside the Aimline going back to outside the Aimline on the follow-through (the opposite of the screen-door rotation of pendulum B). Again this is a natural pendulum motion but it requires a small force (C) to keep his hands and his I5-degree angle to the vertical below the suspension point.

In these two examples of pendulums B and C it is clear that small side forces are required to make these strokes acceptable for putting and both strokes involve curved paths rotating around the golfer’s body. Now look at pendulum A as a putting stroke which involves no side force or curving path.

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 77

The Simplest Pendulum

To examine the putting stroke of vertical pendulum A look at Figure 4.6.9 where the golfer’s hands hang vertically below his shoulders. On the left of this photo the attached putter hangs vertically below the hands which looks a bit strange. But stay with me. If the golfer now swings his arms straight hack along the line of this intended putt lets them relax and then swings them through – guided simply by the force of gravity – the putterface would swing perfectly along the line of this putt (Figure 4.6.9A’). This path is purely in-line along the Aimline just like pendulum A with no side forces or path curvature.

By starting with the putterface square to the line and using this pure-in-line stroke the ball would have to start rolling on that line. The pendulum swings this way because gravity is the only force acting on the stroke: There are no rotating forces to turn the putterface away from the target line and no side forces to push the putter off the straight Aimline path.

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

Extract from the book:

Golf Tuition Disley Golf 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.
