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:

290 Improve Your Stroke Mechanics when practicing with a Track Teacher Clips and Putter Rails: The better you get the tighter you make the tolerance for feedback.)

Many golfers are surprised to see that my arms and putterface slay square to the Aimline even on a breaking putt (Figure 12.4.6). But as you know by now if you want your putt to repeatedly start rolling on the Aimline your putterface needs to be accurately aimed there well through impact and beyond.

This drill may look a little odd on a putting green but it gives golfers a clear understanding and feel of what causes their putterface to rotate. Remember in almost every other golf swing your forearms and hands rotate 180 degrees as they pass through impact. In putting just a few degrees rotation may feel like nothing but it’s more than enough to destroy your putting results.

Truthboard

The final step in your elimination of putterface rotation should be use of the Truthboard (Figure 12.4.7) an aluminum ramp that is dead-flat so a putt can roll dead-straight on it. After you adjust the Truthboard to be precisely level (a level vial by the hole measures this) it provides a perfect surface on which to practice three-foot putts – no break to misread no footprints no spike marks no poorly fixed pitch marks to affect the roll. When your putt is struck with a square face angle the ball will roll straight up the ramp and into the hole. If your face angle is bad at impact the ball will roll off-line and miss the hole. The Truthboard is

Improve Your Stroke Mechanics 291 designed to provide immediate accurate reliable feedback about your putter-face at impact. It reports nothing but the truth (by assuring perfect alignment at address it ingrains a noncompensating stroke) and you can learn from that. Set up the Truthboard with the hole at full size and level the board (adjust one leg until the level vial bubble is centered). Install toe-line tape to make sure you stand the correct distance from the ball set your metronome to beep at your natural body-rhythm cadence and use your preview stroke and ritual before every putt.

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

Extract from the book:

And that is what you see if you look at many putting greens today. Golfers practicing practicing and practicing – who knows what they are practicing? – all hoping their putting will improve. Some of them practice a different thing every day and use a different stroke in every round. Some golfers even use several differ ent strokes during one round. Yes sir-ee they remind me of a bunch of pigeons!

Something else you need to think about before actually beginning to work on your stroke are the answers to a few questions. They are important questions but only if you want to know just how good your putting can get: (1) How good are the world’s best putters? (2) How well do you putt now? (3) How good can one get at putting? (4) How good will your putting be in the future?

Let me answer these as best I can:

I believe the best putters in the world are playing on the PGA Tour. My proof is the results of the first two World Putting Championships where the Tour pros were seriously challenged by some Senior Tour players several LPGA Tour players and a number of amateurs both young and old. However the PGA Tour players placed higher as a group than any other.

Also my data on the percentage of putts holed from different distances shows that the PGA Tour players lead all other groups. Don’t think that you can look at the statistics quoted in the newspapers and find this information because the number that the papers publish (provided by the Tour) simply show how many putts the players average on greens hit in regulation which is affected by the quality of their iron shots (the better the iron play the shorter their putts). And these are the new putting stats. Years ago the Tour’s statistics measured putts taken per green which was influenced by how many greens players missed and how consistently they chipped close to the hole (again leaving them shorter putts). Neither of these statistics measures the quality of a player’s putting because both are strongly influenced by the quality of different shots (approaches and chips).

The true measure of the Tour pros’ putting is indicated by the percentage of putts they make (“convert”) based solely on the length of the putts (shown in Figure 1.4.1 page 7). The shaded curve is data on PGA Tour players taken between the years 1977 and 1992 and shows the spread between the best and worst conversion percentages. It has now been almost 10 years since we measured how well the pros putt and the Pelz Golf Institute is in the process of repeating this test. We hope we’ll find that the percentages have changed in recent years (they remained fairly consistent in the period from ’87 to ’92) as the conditions of greens improve and as players improve their skills (and perhaps as some of our teaching is taking effect).

If you want an answer to question 2 – “How well do you putt?” – you must measure your percentage of putts holed from each distance. You can do this but it will take some effort. You have to record the distance of each putt on your scorecard as you move around the course and indicate those you hole. After 10 to 15

This is a different view of the complete follow through. Your forearms are crossed, and that is the sign that you have completed the follow-through correctly Keep your head perfectly still during the entire swing This is the last crucial step that you must master. It’s by far the easiest step, but ironically it will produce the most results. The biggest problem is that you don’t always know when you are moving your head. You may find that swinging easier helps keep the head still, but other than that it is just something that you will have to really concentrate on.
