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:

If you practice this way (without compensations) while simultaneously learning to read greens better you are well on your way to becoming a great putter. This system works because you learn a noncompensating in-line stroke and learn to read greens better at the same time. This system works because when you do both correctly you are rewarded by making more putts. This is in contrast to what has happened over the years to golfers who worked hard to learn simple noncompensating strokes then found they didn’t work (they missed too many putts) when they took them to the golf course and continued to underread the break in their putts. Of course they didn’t realize that their poor green-reading was the cause of the problem.

By being open-minded understanding about subconscious compensations and learning how to putt on greens without them you open the door for your conscious mind to feel free to read the proper (true) break. When you do both (read true break and use noncompensating strokes) you make putts. With accurate (true break) Aimlines when you make better strokes – with no compensations and solid impact a square face angle through impact and better touch – your putts go into the hole. As you continue to practice making noncompensating strokes and the better you read the true break of your putts the more putts you will roll into the center of the hole.

This situation allows you to commit to that simple noncompensating stroke

I talked so much about earlier in the book – the pure-in-line-square stroke: the best easiest and most reliable way to putt. It will work for you now because when you read the true break in putts you no longer need had setup positions and in- stroke compensations to have a chance to make them.

The key then is to learn to read greens more accurately to see the true amount of break your putts will take and at the same time improve your putting stroke mechanics to allow you to make noncompensating strokes on the greens. Throw in developing better touch and feel and all this starts to get really exciting.

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

Extract from the book:

One Negative

I’m not trying to sell you an in-line putting stroke. If this pils stroke seems too si mple and you want to make putting more difficult that’s okay by me. I’m just trying to inform you that a pure-in-line stroke is the easiest and best way to putt. But it’s not a panacea and there is one potential drawback to putting with this stroke (it’s the same drawback as for the screen-door stroke too).

To see this drawback look at how Perfy misses a simple three-foot putt with

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 85 his perfect in-line-square stroke (Figure 4.7.9). The problem is obvious: If you don’t align your shoulders parallel to the desired starting line for the putt even the perfect stroke path and a square putter blade won’t start the ball rolling on the right line.

So if you are going to take my advice and develop an in-line-square stroke you must be absolutely sure that as you learn this stroke you also learn to address the ball with your shoulders square (parallel-left) to your putting line. And as you will learn in Chapter 11 setting up parallel-left has other benefits as well.

4.8 The Importance of Putterface Angle

While putter path has relatively minor influence on the starting line direction of your putts (only about 17 percent) the putterface angle at the moment of impact (Figure 4.8.1) has a tremendous effect the remaining 83 percent (assuming contact is made on the sweetspot). This means face angle is more than four times as important as putter path. You may find this imbalance in importance surprising (most golfers do) but it’s true.

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.
