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:

Now imagine what would happen if that same blob of mud or a very small piece of metal were inside the ball just under the cover. This weight (unobserved by the golfer) would unbalance the ball the same way the visible blob of mud did so this ball too would move oddly across the green.

Finally imagine a third ball perfectly round and perfectly balanced except for a very tiny piece of metal inside the ball just off its geometric center (Figure 9.8.2). This “almost-balanced” ball would probably roll almost straight (assuming you putted it straight) on a flat smooth level green. balance ball will roll better than a mud-lump ball but still not precisely straight and true.

If you haven’t figured out where I’m going with this let me be as blunt as possible: Very few golf balls today are perfectly balanced. Where and how much off-balance a ball is controls in what direction and how far the ball will roll off-line. Sometimes the amount can be significant.

Most Balls Are Pretty Good

This isn’t Consumer Reports and I’m not writing a ball-by-ball evaluation of the golf ball industry. My tests show that most name-brand balls on the market are very nearly in balance. But they’re not perfectly balanced. And when you are as concerned as 1 am about putting then something needs to be done because these balls can affect your putting.

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

Extract from the book:

One of the more interesting putting techniques in golf history is the so-called “hook stroke” of the great South African Bobby Locke who won more than 80 tournaments worldwide between the 1930s and ’50s including four British Opens. Many golfers have told me that Locke put hook spin on his putts which made them dive into the hole. That may have been what both they and Locke thought but I’m sure it was not the case.

I’ve seen photographs of Locke from which 1 can imagine that his stroke traveled on an in-to-out path with the putterface slightly closed through impact (Fig

Methods of Putting 45 ure 3.5.5). Such a stroke motion would make one think he was trying to hook puns and he may have actually put a very small amount of initial hook spin on his longer putts (his stroke proved both very consistent and very successful – Locke’s putting prowess was legendary). But I’m sure his putts were not spinning to the left or downward when they found the hole. They rolled in just like other golfers’ putts except they may have done so more consistently than any other player of his time. (In section 4.9 you’ll learn that the surface of the green takes all the spin off a putt within the first 20 percent of its roll.)

Bobby Locke was a great putter but his putts did not hook into the hole. preparing to roll a putt.

The Cut Stroke

While there’s no such thing as hooking putts it is possible to cut across the path of one’s putts which is precisely what Chi Chi Rodriguez did while winning more than 30 tournaments in his career. Chi Chi actually putted fairly well in the early years of his career consistently cutting across the ball by swinging the putterhead outside-to-inside across the line (Figure 3.5.6). But his putting failed him later on because a cut stroke makes putting more complex than it needs to be.

It takes a talented athlete like Chi Chi to swing his putter to the left while holding the face open to the right and successfully make his ball go straight. But even he couldn’t do it all the time which is why I think he would have won quite a few more tournaments had he grooved and owned a simpler stroke. (Don’t think the cut stroke spins putts enough to make them slice across the green. The friction of the grass takes all spin off of putts the same as with hook-stroke putts.)

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

The completed grip with both “V” shapes pointed toward the right shoulder. Note the “V” shapes are parallel with each other.Hopefully, you already have a grip that closely resembles this one. There are some slight variations, but this grip is standard for the most part. It should produce the best results. However, if you have a different grip than this, and you are more comfortable using it, you may continue using it. A grip is hard to change, and this one may feel really uncomfortable to you; however, benefits will come if you embrace this new grip. The “Simple Golf Swing” will most likely provide to you the desired results, even if you use your current grip. However, if you are still having problems when you get through the system, please incorporate the above grip method into your swing.
