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:

But remember as discussed in section 4.4 aim is not just a function of eyesight. Rather it is primarily a learned response to the way you miss. If you usually miss to the left your subconscious will get you to aim farther to the right. If you usually miss to the right your subconscious will aim you to the left to compensate.

I learned early in my teaching career that I could never successfully change a golfer’s stroke compensation to pull putts to the left if I allowed him to keep aiming to the right. Of course the opposite is also true.

Which raises the “chicken or the egg” question: Which comes first missing to the left or aiming to the right? Well I’m going to give you the “chicken or the egg” answer: I don’t know. But more important it doesn’t matter and golfers shouldn’t care. Whichever came first the other is always there. If you correct one fault but leave the other in place the correction will soon disappear. To improve you must always correct two things the mistake and its compensation (correct only one thing and you ‘ll probably putt worse).

In our schools we have learned that the most efficient way a golfer can learn proper aim is to separate how it is learned from his stroke results. It usually takes three to six weeks of nightly practice with a feedback device. You can’t do this outdoors putting on a real green because there is no feedback on proper aim there (whether a putt goes in or not doesn’t show you where you aimed). In fact it’s possible to putt for the rest of your life on a putting green and never improve your aim.

The “LazrAimer”

The most efficient way to teach your brain what perfect putter alignment looks like (that is when the putterface is perfectly aligned to your Aimline) is with a device called the LazrAimer (Figure 11.7.1). We use this device with every student in our three-day schools to measure their ability to aim and teach them how to improve this ability. The LazrAimer actually doubles the visible manifestation of the mistake (Figure 11.7.2) which is good because after practicing with it for a while and beginning to improve it points out the remaining errors no matter how small. Although three days of practice is not enough to learn to aim well it gives students a start and makes them very aware of the problem. By the time they leave us they know that if they don’t learn to aim properly any work they do to improve their strokes will probably he wasted.

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

Extract from the book:

As 1 mentioned above l’m moving from the more to the less complex in terms of having to perform manipulations and actions to make these strokes happen. That means I’m going to finish with the method I think is the easiest. You can skip ahead if you like but 1’d suggest reading through the less desirable methods so you don’t someday find yourself doing something that you think is good but is actually hurting your chances of success.

One putting method you rarely hear about is “body putting.” As shown in Figure 3.5.1 the arms wrists and hands arc locked onto the body so the putter is swung by the rotation of the body around the spine. One reason it’s rarely mentioned is that you’ve never seen a Tour professional putt this way for any length of time and with any measure of success. I have tried it and yes putts can be made with this stroke. But that doesn’t mean you should do it.

Body putting does help eliminate the wrist collapse and forearm rotation problems so many golfers suffer from. However the body turn is so powerful it doesn’t allow golfers to develop the delicate touch for dealing with fast greens. Body putting also relies on the very thing that most golfers want to avoid on the green and that is unwanted body motion. Watch golfers particularly amateurs and you’ll see them unknowingly make all manner of body movements when they putt particularly swaying back and forth which puts them out of sync with their stroke. Because it destroys timing body motion is one of the leading causes of inconsistency and havoc in traditional putting.

The Power Stroke

A number of very fine players putt with what I call the “power stroke ” by which I mean a stroke in which the power comes from the muscles of the hands wrists or forearms. Some power-strokers use their wrist muscles hinging their wrists the way Arnold Palmer did very successfully in the early part of his career (Figure 3.5.2). Another power-stroker Tiger Woods doesn’t break his wrists but supplies power with his arm muscles (Figure 3.5.3).

Both Arnold and Tiger like to force things to happen to control their putts and make them do what they want them to do. And we all know that they both have so much talent they perform this way very well. I think however they would both putt better if they used less hit and more stroke in their putting motions. (What do I mean? Have you ever seen Arnold or Tiger blow a short putt four feet past the hole? That’s what I mean.)

No matter what provides the power there are two big drawbacks to a power stroke. First is the likelihood of a “power surge ” which can be caused by adrenaline resulting from anxiety or excitement; this significantly degrades the touch of most players under pressure. Second is the uncertainty of controlling the wrist hinge if there is one when the muscles are tight under pressure. Either way consistency usually suffers.

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

Focus on using your spine as your axis now. Turn both shoulders and sides directly around your spine. Keep your left arm locked, and your left wrist locked. Although difficult to see from this camera-angle, the triangle is still perfectly in tact.
