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:

Putters can be fit to golfers in two ways. One way is the “as-is” fit which assumes the golfer will never change his stroke will always putt the way he does at the time of the fitting. For example if the golfer stands too far from and open to the line (Figure 11.6.2) the as-is-fit putter would have a very flat lie plus head balance and shaft axis that would compensate for his propensity to strike the ball on the toe.

The other way is the “perfect fit.” For this the fitter assumes that the golfer will learn to putt from a perfect setup position so he needs a putter of a particular length lie grip size and so on to fit his body shape size and setup. And what happens if this golfer then changes to a strange posture? What if he bends way over at the waist holds the putter far from his body and crouches low to the ground? Then the perfect-fit putter wouldn’t fit him anymore and he would find it awkward to use.

So what is the right way to fit putters to golfers? For the “perfect” stroke or the “as-is” stroke? It helps to know the golfer’s intentions. If he’s not going to come to a school take putting lessons or ever change his stroke then he should be fit the

244 Establish Your Practice Framework best way possible for the stroke he has. But personally I prefer the perfect-fit method. Because if there is any possibility that he will work to improve his putting skills especially his setup posture then it’s wise to fit him with a putter that will help him (or at least allow him) to make the best stroke he can. And sometimes having a perfect-fit putter might encourage him to work on improvement.

Putter-fitting is easy painless and can help make it easier for you to learn proper noncompensating strokes from your most natural and comfortable body positions. If you have your putting equipment fit properly first before you develop and groove your stroke mechanics you won’t have to relearn them later on to remove compensating moves caused by misfit equipment.

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

Extract from the book:

Before I discuss some of the many methods you could employ let me pass on to you the one thought the one axiom that governs all my theories on putting. It is this: Simpler is better. You’ll find research test results in many different disciplines that validate this conclusion. It is certainly true in almost all of sports. Why? Because regardless of your level of talent the less you give yourself to do (and still get the job done) the more consistently you can learn to do it. Whereas the more compensations that must he made in your putting stroke the more difficult it will be to repeat in such a way that it actually makes your putts. The more complex a putting stroke (that is the more compensations that must be made to make it effective) the more uncertain (or inconsistent) its results by any golfer regardless of skill level.

All this may sound routine and you may have heard it many times before but that doesn’t mean it isn’t true. And more important that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be taken seriously. So there’s no question about it: In putting simpler is better.

Methods of Putting 35

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.

Now, I’ll take you into the follow-through. This will be simple. Basically just keep turning around your spine. If you have flipped your wrists correctly, you won’t have to bother too much with the follow through. However, there is a basic position that you should be in when you finish the swing. You should be facing the target, and your right and left forearms should be crossed. Your right forearm should be closest to you, and the club should be out towards left field.
