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:

Green-Reading the 15th Building Block 147 defined break (as measured at the hole distance instead of perpendicular to the ball-hole line).

Is it any wonder that of all the putts missed by amateur golfers 80 to 90 percent miss below the hole? Even Tour pros miss 70 to 80 percent of their misses on the low side. Obviously you would expect that if golfers under-read the break they should miss their putts below the hole. But that isn’t quite the whole story.

7.3 The Subconscious Knows Better

While golfers don’t recognize the true amount of a putt’s break in their conscious minds their subconscious minds do better. 1-low do I know? After asking these 1 500 golfers how much break they were playing I asked them to putt at the same holes. But before they hit any balls I measured where they were aiming their bodies putters and strokes. Again I was amazed at the results.

While they told me they were playing break values that were less than a third of the real value they were aiming to play breaks much closer to between 65 and 75 percent of the true break values. So if the true break was 40 inches they said they were putting at a spot 12 inches above the hole then actually aimed at a spot between 25 and 30 inches above.

Possibly the most incredible aspect of all this was that not one of the golfers was aware of doing this. They didn’t realize they actually were playing far more break than they thought they were or would admit to playing. Test this yourself: Stand on a putting green with your friends and ask one of them how much break he is allowing for; then watch as he tells you one thing but does something completely different. You don’t need any sophisticated equipment to see it.

You need to understand the realities of putting so you’ll be more tolerant when unexplained things happen to you on the greens. You need to believe – no you need to know – that there is no net luck in putting no matter how your putts seem to be rolling bouncing or deflecting that day.

Once you understand the reality of the problems of the game and the often cruel statistical nature of its results you will be better prepared to proceed with your learning program which will lead to your improved putting. Always remain alert to the importance of immediate accurate reliable feedback and what it can do for your practice and on-course putting. So take heart and realize your better scores will come from more areas than simply improving your stroke mechanics. There’s much more to good putting than that physical stroke motion of yours.

Problems on the Greens 33

There are many different ways for golfers to putt. Having said that it does not mean that I’m advocating all or any of these methods. But it’s important that you are aware of the choices a golfer has and even a few he doesn’t unless he doesn’t care about the Rules of Golf (which I think you must if you’re going to he serious about this game).

The old adage “different strokes for different folks” is very meaningful because some putting strokes work better than others for certain players while no one stroke works perfectly for everyone. While no strokes even perfect ones make all their putts some really awful strokes do make some putts. And sometimes the differences between good and bad strokes are very difficult to measure or see. But believe me the differences are there.
