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:

The second most important flow-line is that of your forearms. The usual error is to align it too far to the left (Figure 11.5.7). Many right-handed golfers set their forearms this way because it’s the instinctive position for those using the conventional “right-hand-low (below)” putter grip. With their forearm flow-line pointing left most golfers cut across their putts (it’s the natural flow direction) and

Establish Your Practice Framework 237 compensate by opening their putterfaces through impact. To align your forearm flow-line parallel to your Aimline either tuck your right elbow into your body or use the left-hand-low putting grip (both shown in Figure 11.5.8).

Eyes Are Number Three

When you stand behind your ball and judge the distance of the putt (both when green-reading and making your preliminary stroke as part of your routine) keep your eye flow-line horizontal to the ground. This is called the binocular position because both eyes are working together and feeding a properly triangulated picture of the putt distance to your brain. This is the position from which you can best estimate distance.

However everything changes as you address your putt holding your head over your Aimline trying to align your putter and body to it. In this case both eyes should be on-line – that is vertically over the Aimline – to help orient your flowlines and putterface to it. Many golfers unknowingly set their eye flow-line so it cuts across their Aimline to the left – because they stand open to the Aimline trying to “see-the-target” better – which ironically makes it more difficult to see their proper setup position correctly (shown in Figure 11.5.9).

During setup and alignment your head should rotate along the vertical plane above your Aimline. It’s best to turn your head this way keeping your eyes in the plane of the Aimline to help orient your shoulder and forearm flow-lines and ultimately your putter path to your Aimline.

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

Extract from the book:

The simpler and easier the stroke is to execute the more precisely and repetitively you’ll be able to learn to execute it especially under pressure. And that’s why all my teaching begins with that principle.

Let’s examine some specifics about the many ways you can putt. First we’ll look at two of the easiest ways which are both illegal according to the USGA. Why? Well for one thing they really aren’t putting at all although they are very effective ways of rolling the ball on the green and into the hole. But they don’t utilize a stroke. Therefore according to the USGA they aren’t putting. And I must agree with them: They aren’t really putting.

The True Roller

After about 24 years of research I’ve determined that the easiest way to putt (notice I say “easiest ” not “easy”) is to roll putts from the True Roller. As shown in Figure 3.2.1 you can see that there’s no stroke at all: Simply aim the True Roller and then release the ball from the height required to provide it with the necessary speed. Looks easy right? The True Roller never pulls or pushes putts its backstroke never moves inside or outside the line so you might think it would he unbelievably easy to make putts using it. But it’s not that easy because you still have to know where to aim it and how fast and how far to roll the ball.

The True Roller is the easiest way to putt because it is as simple as starting the ball on the right line (in the right direction) and at the right speed. But that doesn’t mean it is easy. I know because I use it all the time in my research to determine the right speed and the right line and it can take me many tries to find the perfect release point and direction. But once I’ve got them I can roll the same putt exactly the same way over and over and over again. And ultimately that’s what you want your putting stroke to do. So the True Roller is as close to the ideal as I’ve found.

Shooting Pool

Not quite as easy as the ‘true Roller but fairly close is rolling the ball as if you are shooting pool. In Figure 3.2.2 I ‘m demonstrating this technique on a practice putting green. l’ve actually putted like this a number of times on a number of dif ferent greens and grass types because it proved to me just how important speed is to good putting. When “pool putting ” starting the ball on the chosen line is sim ple but it doesn’t help you choose the line and giving the ball the proper speed is just as difficult as it is when standing up and using your putter. Again this is not a method I think the USGA should allow. I’m merely explaining that it’s not nearly as easy as you might expect it to be. (If you don ‘t believe me get a pool cue and try using it on some breaking putts on your practice green.) Just as with the True

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

Extract from the book:

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.
