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:

Mark Your Dot-Spot Too

Yes dimples can affect putting. Or more precisely making contact on the edges of dimples can affect your putting. It’s not a large effect and it’s even less significant the harder you strike your putts. Also the effect doesn’t occur every time because if you place your ball down on the green in random orientations you’re more likely to strike the ball somewhere that won’t have an effect – on the spherical

212 Wind Lopsided Balls Dimples Rain Sleet and Snow surface across the flat of a dimple or close to the flat of the dimple. Still the possibility does exist and there is a simple way to avoid it altogether.

Having marked your ball with its Balance-line (see section 9.9) rotate it until you locate the largest spherical surface (non-dimple) area on the Balance-line then circle it: This becomes your Dot-Spot (Figure 9.10.7). Set your ball so the Dot-Spot is at the back of the ball (away from the hole where it will be struck by the putter) when your Balance-line is aimed precisely along your Aimline. That way when you make contact there will never be a dimple effect.

9.11 Rain Sleet and Snow: Are We Having Fun Yet?

As I warned you at the beginning of this chapter the information here truly could be more than many golfers want to know. But please don ‘t think that I’m trying to make putting seem more difficult. You don’t have to carry any of this information with you onto the course. You don’t have to think about it ever again if you don’t want to. But someday the fact that you read something about putting in the wind may help you. Or perhaps you’ll think “Maybe I’ll try that Pelz tip and turn the ball so I don’t hit the edge of a dimple.” It can’t hurt.

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

Extract from the book:

Because so many people assume that putts can spin all the way to the hole and are obsessed with the idea of overspin I built a putter that let me examine and evaluate the benefit of true overspin. I embedded a razor blade just above the center of a putterface (Figure 4.9.4) making sure the sharp edge of the blade would contact the ball above its geometric center and impart true overspin.

I tested the razor-blade putter versus an identical putter with a normal face and counted how many putts each one holed. On very short putts – inside three feet – the razor putter performed pretty well. However on longer putts it created true initial overspin that caused the balls to “grab” on the green and jump forward uncontrollably.

But there was more. If the grass was damp or I was putting against the grain the overspin didn’t take and the ball didn’t travel as far; when the grass was dry or when putting with the grain the spinning ball grabbed and jumped forward to roll widely divergent distances. So overspin if you could create it causes inconsistency. Which is why I say “Forget about it!”

Physical and Mental Factors

4.10 Ball Position Posture and Flow-Lines

In sections 4.4 through 4.9 the factors discussed are the building blocks involved with the swinging action of your putting stroke mechanics. From here on in this chapter the factors I’ll explain will be ones relating to your body mind and equipment. While all of these are less familiar and less popular to work on than the other fundamentals of stroke mechanics that doesn’t mean they won’t be important to your success on the greens.

For example say you employ a very unusual putting posture but it’s one you like and lets you execute a perfect stroke consistently and repeatedly. Then I say it’s absolutely acceptable. If it works and you like it it’s okay with me no matter how odd or unconventional it seems. However if anything about your unusual posture adversely affects one or more of the fundamentals of stroke mechanics then you should change it. So all of the following are important only in how they influence your stroke.

Position the golf ball in the manner previously described, then stand straight up. Your knees are not locked, but they are close to locked. Your back is perfectly straight. Your chest should be out. It won’t feel right to have your back straight and chest protruding. It will look and feel “exaggeratedâ€
