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:

The Subconscious Is Awesome The more I understand the way golfers under-read the break of their putts the more I am in awe of our subconscious minds. It is truly incredible the way the subconscious figures out how to compensate for our inadequate green-reading abilities to push and pull putts without letting us know what we are doing even letting us occasionally make a few putts almost in spite of ourselves.

Just imagine now that you know the relationship between true and visible break if you can somehow read greens well enough to get your subconscious mind working with you (rather than make it fight your green-reading and compensate for it) you might really be able to improve that 15th and final building block of your putting your green-reading. I’ll show you how to make it happen in Chapter 13. Until then let ‘s keep learning how to deal with it. So far you have seen that these indisputable facts about your putting will never change:

So let’s move on and learn more about the realities of the grain of grass plumb bobs and how your mind works in your putting.

7.10 What about the Grain?

Something else to factor into your green-reading is the grain of the grass. To many amateurs who don’t understand grain and don’t consider it in their figuring of how their putts will break grain may sound like a dirty word but it needn’t be.

Grain is nothing more than the direction in which grass grows. While you may say “I thought grass grows up ” only rarely does it grow straight up. The roots of grass grow down to their source of nutrition and moisture while the blades grow up and toward their source of moisture and light. Figure 7.10.1 lists the conditions that affect how grass blades grow assuming other surrounding factors are normal.

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

Extract from the book:

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.

Of course good touch and feel also require a proper read of the green knowing what will happen to your putt as it rolls. Think of green-reading as having a good road map for your journey. A good map or good directions can make the trip easy but a bad map with poor directions can turn the simplest trip into a nightmare.

The “Simple Golf” Swing: “Golf for the Rest of Us”

Extract from the book:

Golf Tuition Fosseway Golf & Country Club

Keep focusing on bringing your right shoulder back and around your spine. Some of you may be able to turn about 90 degrees around your spine as shown in the picture on the left. Others may only be able to turn 45 degrees around your spine. Either is okay, but do not start moving other parts of the body to compensate for not being able to make a full shoulder turn. Stop when it gets uncomfortable. The important part is to STAY CONNECTED. When your left arm becomes parallel to the ground, stop your swing.
