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 have a bad stroke and don’t know where to aim no amount of positive thinking is going to make your putts go into the hole. However a positive attitude is essential to keep you on track and in good mental balance for always making the

342 Develop Your Artistic Senses (Feel Touch Green-Reading) best stroke you can make in every situation. It can keep you willing and capable of practicing and learning to get better now and for as long as you play the game.

When you miss six eight-footers in a row (and you will) you’ll no doubt get discouraged. Most golfers do and it’s hard to blame them. They say to themselves “I might as well change my stroke because this one is not working. 1 can’t do worse than miss them all.”

But that’s not true. You can do worse: You can miss them all for the rest of your golf career. If you keep changing strokes never learning what is right or wrong about one and never fixing and committing to the one stroke that could make you a better putter you can drive yourself crazy with bad putting. So don’t do it. Don ‘t give up and start all over just because you miss a few putts; don’t throw away the good work you’ve done. Be patient and keep the faith. Lady luck can’t find your side if you don’t have one.

Even on your had days – and you’re going to have them – you need to keep the faith in your new stroke and your ability to hole putts. Because all you have to do is hole the next few and your average isn’t any worse than anyone else ‘s (or what you were doing with your old stroke). But very soon when your improved putting abilities start taking hold and your feel green-reading pure-in-line-square stroke and confidence all start paying dividends you will start to putt better. Really better. Measurably better. Lower scores better. But only if you keep on grooving and improving and polishing those building blocks of your putting game. I’ve discovered a telltale sign of a Tour pro in putting trouble. I ask “How’s your stroke? ” and he (or she) answers “Which one? “

Great putters don’t give up and change strokes every time they miss a few putts. Great putters almost make every putt even though they (like the rest of us) miss a lot more than they make. But all great putters have a stroke that they are committed to perfecting and they spend their careers working on it to make it better. I can’t think of a better example of this than Loren Roberts the “Boss of the Moss” on the PGA Tour (Figure 13.4.14). If you’ve seen him putt once you’ve seen him putt every time because that’s his stroke (it’s a great one) and will continue to he for as long as he plays.

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

Extract from the book:

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 111 make this stroke in your own body rhythm following a perfect routine and ritual sequence with good touch and feel and play the correct amount of break then you’ve got it.

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!

CHAPTER 5 Five Nonphysical Building Blocks: Touch Feel Attitude Routine and Ritual

5.1 Controlling the Ball

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.

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

Extract from the book:

Golf Tuition Ganton Golf Club

First of all, it’s important that you realize that your grip will affect the results that you get. However, it’s not as complicated as the other systems make it out to be. First, grab the club with your right hand so the face of it is toward the target. Keep the face pointed toward the target, while placing your left hand on the bottom of the grip or handle. At this point you should be holding your left hand out flat, so that it is touching the bottom of the grip. Position the joint where your left pinky meets your palm directly underneath the handle of the club. Keep the pinky there and place the first joint in your left forefinger directly underneath the club. Now, do not lift your fingers up, bringing the grip of the club into your palm; instead, hold the handle steady with your left fingers and wrap your palm around the top of the grip. This is an important distinction. Again, don’t wrap the fingers towards the palm, but instead wrap your palm around the top of the club. Now, you should be able to easily place your left thumb directly on top of the club. This should form a V-shape where your left thumb and left forefinger meet. This V-shape should point directly to your right shoulder when it’s complete.
