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:

If you want to work more on feel than touch play Safety-Drawback (see details in section 13.2) to the same two or three holes over and over refining your feel for those distances to the maximum degree possible. After a few cycles around the same three holes you’ll know exactly what is required for each putt (you’ve seen them roll and your touch for what is needed is confirmed) so you can concentrate purely on your feel on feeling the perfect preview stroke for each putt.

Two-Hole Drill

Here is a good way to practice your feel while also refining your rhythm. We call it the “Two-Hole Drill” because you putt back and forth between two holes in line with each other to the beat of a metronome set at your natural body rhythm.

Find two holes on the putting green that you can monopolize without offending anyone. Get behind the closer hole imagine parallel Aimlines that work for both of them and place two balls close together on those lines 21/2 feet from the closer hole (Figure 13.3.7). Turn on your metronome and putt the first ball (the

320 Develop Your Artistic Senses (Feel Touch Green-Reading) short putt) using your routine and ritual to the beat of the metronome. Immediately look at the second hole make the best preview stroke you can step into your address position execute your ritual and stroke the second ball to the second hole (Figure 13.3.8). Again make this stroke to your body-rhythm cadence.

At first it’s not important that you hole the second putt or even come very close. What you want to do is begin to feel comfortable making a long swing in the same rhythm as your short swing. Only by keeping your rhythm constant for putts of all lengths can you develop optimum feel for speed and distance based on the size of your swings. By putting back and forth you end up feeling and making the perfect stroke for both putts at the same rhythm which is great practice for all of your on-course putting.

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

Extract from the book:

The importance of this image is something we deal with in depth in our schools. We go to great lengths to get golfers to see and feel in their mind’s eye what their perfect strokes are going to be like before they try to make them. Because once you see and know exactly what you are trying to do and have a clear picture of it in your mind’s eye it is so much easier to do it.

The basic idea is to keep your conscious mind busy seeing your perfect stroke during your practice swings as a way to build your confidence and form a clear picture in your mind’s eye. Once you see and feel how you want to stroke your putt the trick becomes simply keeping your conscious mind busy and out of the way (for example thinking about your preshot ritual) so your subconscious can do its thing. Our procedure for developing this skill and our recommended drills and practice techniques to ingrain it are detailed in Chapters 11 and 13.

4.13 The Best Way to Putt

A quick review. The easiest way to roll balls at controlled speeds on your intended line is to use a True Roller. Mechanically the simplest way to swing a putter along your Aimline is to straddle the line and use a croquet-style putting stroke.

But the best legal way to putt is to take a perfectly fit putter and aim it accurately from a square setup with your feet knees hips shoulder and eye flow-lines aligned parallel-left of your Aimline; put your eyes vertically over the line and your hands vertically under your shoulders; then stroke your putt solidly on the sweetspot with a dead-hands pure-in-line stroke keeping your putterface square to the Aimline (Figure 4.13.1). In the next few chapters you ‘ll learn that if you

This pure-in-line-square putting stroke is natural works under pressure minimizes the critical nature of timing and hall position conforms 100 percent to the USGA Rules of Golf and is fundamentally simple to do. I highly recommend it!

Golf Swing Tips

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

Extract from the book:

The chest and shoulders shouldn’t be turning, unless your arms are turning with them. In other words, you want to start your swing with a shoulder turn, but your arms should start swinging at EXACTLY the same time. They are an extension. They are connected. Furthermore, your arms shouldn’t be swinging unless your chest is rotating. Don’t start swinging your arms without starting the shoulder turn. They are connected. Your left elbow remains locked throughout the entire swing. When you complete your shoulder turn, your arms should stop as well. The goal will be to have your left arm exactly parallel to the ground. Your elbow is still locked. When it gets there…STOP. Do not continue to swing your arms.
