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:

Given proper feedback conditions competition is the best environment for learning. So compete against the best putters you can find at every opportunity when you practice your putting. All of the drills above can become games if the goal becomes winning. For example in Too High or the lag putt Drill the winning (closest to hole) putt (playing with any number of others) counts one point and the first golfer to win six points wins the game.

Develop Your Artistic Senses (Feel Touch Green-Reading) 325

But any old competition is not good enough. For example don’t play “aces” (which golfers instinctively equate to ramming putts well past the hole when they miss) or “closest-to-the-hole” games on putts of less than 35 feet in length (which teach stopping the ball at the hole 17 inches short of where you want your touch and feel to be focused). Choose games that improve your weaknesses and avoid those that tend to be more destructive than helpful. Remember the most aggressive (and smartest) putters are those who roll makable putts (shorter than 35footers) at the optimum speed to stop 17 inches past the hole if they miss. And the smartest and best lag putters stop the ball dead around the hole. These are the results you want to develop as instinctive in your touch and feel.

13.4 Develop Your Green-Reading Ability

Golfers we have a problem. We don’t read greens well we don’t play enough break in our putts we compensate for this subconsciously in our setups and stroke manipulations and because of these misreads and compensations we miss more putts than we have to miss. We could make more putts if we could get rid of the whole mess start all over learn to read greens properly then use one pure non-compensating stroke for all of our putts.

I keep saying “we” because when I tested 1 500 golfers they all had this problem. And I had it too. The question is do you? There is a simple way to find out by measuring whether you tend to miss regularly above or below the hole.

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

Extract from the book:

• To lag a putt is to minimize thoughts of holing it instead concentrating on stopping the ball as close to the proper distance and as close to the hole as possible thus minimizing the possibility of three-putting (which is first priority).

Problems on the Greens 31

Lag putters (golfers who always seem to be lagging their putts) usually leave more than half of their putts short which is not good when you are trying to hole the maximum percentage of makable putts (those inside 30 feet). But to be a good lag putter from outside 35 feet is one of putting’s
