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.

286 Improve Your Stroke Mechanics is simple easy and inexpensive but doesn’t do anything for your aim and setup. So periodically intersperse your Tru-Putt sessions with some work with the Putting Track and/or Elk’s Key to check on your stroke path your eye and shoulder alignments and with the LazrAimer to check your aim.

Putter Rails

Another good way to groove a noncompensating stroke with a good face angle at impact is to drill indoors with Putter Rails in the Putting Track (Figure 12.4.2). But don’t do this until you’re comfortable putting in the Putting Track without the rails. Start with the sides of the track spread far enough so you hit them no more than about half the time then decrease the spacing as you improve (the spacing can be adjusted by placing the legs inside or outside the side rails adding or subtracting washers or by using a different-length spacer bar between the sides).

The Putter Rails attach to the putterface with double-sided tape. Stroke 50 putts per night using all the same guidelines for careful practice mentioned in section 12.1 for improving your stroke path (metronome beeping at your body rhythm target can aligned precisely with the Putting Track Elk’s Key positioned

Improve Your Stroke Mechanics 287 for shoulder flow-line monitoring and tape indicating your repeatable toe-to-ball distance). When you first start using the Putter Rails it will feel as if they are helping you hold your putterface square down the line. Close your eyes on every other stroke so you feel the square-face motion throughout your stroke path all the way to the finish and be sure to hold your finish for five beats of the metronome. The desired result of this drill is being able to swing your putter back and through the Track without the Putter Rails touching the sides at any time (Figure 12.4.3). This is the perfect no-touch pure-in-line and square feel you want to internalize and use on the course.

Defining How the Ball Rolls

Before getting into the mechanics of the putting stroke I’ll define some vocabulary which will help keep things simple and easy to understand throughout the book. In our Scoring Game Schools we routinely use words or phrases that you may not be familiar with. We do this because we’ve found that many golfers refer to the same things using different terms and sometimes use the same terms to describe different things.

Obviously this can lead to unnecessary confusion and disagreement. It helps to be more explicit in how you describe and define some of these concepts. For ex ample my staff and I never talk about “putting to there ” or putting “that way.”

Rather we talk about the “Aimline” you intend to start the ball rolling on the “ini tial line” you actually start the ball on and where the “ball track” goes after that.

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.
