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:

That’s what happens in a 20-mph gust. What about a fairly consistent 5-mph wind something you probably play in all the time? It can move the hall 2½ inches off-line on a nine-foot putt (on a green measuring 9.0 on the Stimpmeter) and again that’s enough to miss the hole (Figure 9.5.2). The 5-mph breeze you enjoy so much as it caresses your face and makes you think golf is the greatest game ever is the same SOB that just blew your ball out of the hole and cost you a stroke. Look at one last ball track (Figure 9.5.3) that of a putt on a slight sidehill

Now wouldn’t that blow your mind to enjoy the light (3-mph) breeze as you prepare to putt and then have that same lovely breeze blow your left-edge putt just enough uphill to keep it outside of the hole after you stroked it perfectly? It would if you knew enough to let it but you probably wouldn’t realize that it was the breeze that was at fault and think you pulled it.

No Doubt Let there be no doubt in your mind that wind can and regularly does affect how balls roll on greens. Like the lumpy donut it ‘s part and parcel of the game we love something we need to he aware of and sometimes even consider in our putting calculations. At what levels do wind’s effects become significant? How do they affect your scores? What can you do about them?

I don’t yet have all the answers. We’re still testing. But I had to share with you the best information we have as I write this with the understanding that there is more to come.

9.6 What Wind Means to You

While we don’t have complete test results we do know that even fairly low wind velocities can affect putting especially on really fast greens. And that’s not only when the wind is blowing across your line. A 5-mph wind (at ball level on a flat green) blowing straight into or behind your putt can change the distance it rolls by more than a foot either way. Obviously on longer putts or in stronger winds these effects will be magnified. So you could do everything right stroke your 30foot putt perfectly and still have it stop more than three feet short of the hole solely because the ball was rolling into a light breeze. Or on what you used to call a windless day you could roll your slightly downhill downgrain 30-foot putt 15 feet past the hole and off the green simply because that pleasant 5-mph breeze quietly urged your ball along in the downwind direction.

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

Extract from the book:

4.9 The Very Important Impact Point closed and you will be penalized for being either one at impact (it’s just a Putter path is somewhat important to good putt- matter of how much). It will never be ing. Putterface angle is four times more important. square – and certainly never consis-And guess what? Your impact point – where you tently square when you need it! make contact with the ball – is even more important still!

The point of contact between your putter and the ball determines how much energy is transferred to the ball at the moment of impact. And the amount of energy your putts receive determines both how fast and far the balls will roll and how much your putts will break. Most golfers believe the distance their putts roll is determined strictly by the length and force of their swing. That’s true only if they transfer a consistent percentage of energy from putter to ball at impact. And that is seldom the case.

The Sweetspot

A common term in sports is “sweetspot.” Tennis players talk about hitting the sweetspot of the racquet; baseball players like to crack the ball on the sweetspot of the bat. Why? Because when contact is made there it feels good and maximum energy is transferred to the ball. The same is true for a putter in golf: The sweet-spot is that place where contact feels the most solid which eliminates all rotation and wobble of the putterhead at impact (Figure 4.9.1) and which transfers the maximum energy possible from the stroke to the ball. If you do everything correctly your impact point will be the sweetspot of your putter.

It is possible to miss the sweetspot either in the vertical plane (hitting the ball too high or too low on the face) or the horizontal plane (making contact toward the toe or the heel of the putter). Any of these misses by as little as a fraction of an inch results in a mis-hit and a loss of energy. But you don’t need to worry because in Chapter 12 I will show you how to measure and mark your putter sweetspot and then learn to hit the ball there repeatedly and consistently.

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

Here is a picture at full speed. The wrists have completed their roll through the ball. The left elbow is close to the body, and about ready to break, allowing for follow through.Now, I’ll take you into the follow-through. This will be simple. Basically just keep turning around your spine. If you have flipped your wrists correctly, you won’t have to bother too much with the follow through. However, there is a basic position that you should be in when you finish the swing. You should be facing the target, and your right and left forearms should be crossed. Your right forearm should be closest to you, and the club should be out towards left field.
