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:

Once you see and feel the perfect practice stroke you must believe that if you re peat it exactly you will make the putt. If you don’t believe this make a few more practice swings. Only after you have seen what you believe to be your perfect practice stroke – what I call the “preview stroke” – can your mind’s eye know exactly what you want for your real stroke. This combination of vision feel and belief will give you the confidence to repeat that preview stroke as your real stroke. And that is how you hole putts.

Jack Nicklaus (Figure 5.8.1) once beat Tom Weiskopf in the final round to win a tournament. Although Tom had hit the ball better from tee to green all day Jack had holed an unusually large number of putts including one on the final hole to settle the matter. After it was all over Torn commented to Jack “You knew you were going to make that putt before you putted it didn’t you?”

Jack replied “No I didn’t. But I believed I would. That’s no different than for all the other putts I hit today and every other day though. I don’t putt until I think I’m ready to make it. Do you? And if you don’t then why the hell do you putt it?”

That s classic Jack and dead on target. If you don’ t have a clear idea of the feel and touch of the stroke needed to make the putt then you aren’t ready to putt. It sounds simple and obvious but of the thousands of golfers I ‘ve taught putting to very few stand over the ball fully believing in their ability to hole the putt. Most golfers are thinking about their stroke mechanics thinking negative thoughts about missing or three-putting or doubting their aim. Is it any wonder they miss? Not to me.

5.9 Preparation: The Routine

To get you over any negative or nonproductive thinking and provide a proactive way to approach your putting you should establish both a routine and a ritual for every putt you face. And by every putt 1 mean every one in practice and in play for the rest of your career.

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

Extract from the book:

The whole purpose of putting is to put the ball into the hole in as few strokes as possible. To accomplish this successfully you must consistently strike your puns with precision and accuracy starting them on the correct line and giving them the correct initial speed. If you can accomplish the initial conditions of proper line and speed the rest of your putting results are up to Mother Nature and the greens.

Starting your putts on your chosen initial line is primarily a function of your stroke mechanics specifically aiming your putter properly and striking it with a good path and square face angle. That’s the easy part. Imparting the proper initial speed is significantly more difficult because it involves stroke mechanics (making solid contact on the sweetspot) as well as putting “feel” and “touch” for distance plus your ability to read greens.

Taking a Trip

Stick with me here as I equate the skills of putting touch feel and green-reading on the golf course to what you do when taking a Thanksgiving drive to your parents’ house. First to have a nice trip you need to know how many miles you have to drive and how much of the trip is mountain driving. With that knowledge you can figure out how much gas you need to make it there. This is like having touch in putting which is knowing how long the putt is so you can then figure out how much power will be required in your stroke to get the ball to the hole.

And you’d better know how much gas you need before starting the trip because there are no filling stations (putting stroke adjustments) along the way (after you hit the ball).

Five Nonphysical Building Blocks: Touch Feel Attitude Routine and Ritual 113

Once you know how much gas you need then you have to figure out how hard to step on the gas pedal and when to step on the brakes as you drive on your Thanksgiving trip (something you figure out after you are into the trip) to negotiate the stops and turns in the road along the way. This “knowing how to drive” is analogous to knowing how to feel the proper stroke in putting where you must know in your mind’s eye the required size of the swing (or hardness of the hit) as well as how it will look and feel to impart the power which will provide the proper energy and speed of roll required. So touch is knowing how long the trip is and how much power it will require and feel is knowing how to apply the power (how to drive) to get you there.

Here is a view from the front. The goal of this photo is to show that there is no lateral movement. Simply rotating your right shoulder around your spine.*Please note that you should NOT be cocking your wrists at the end of your backswing. While this may add a bit of power, it will totally throw off your timing. The results of a wrist cock are slices, hooks, fat shots, etc.
