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.

In other words don’t die your putts to the front edge and expect to get a dimple-free last turn; roll your putts at the optimum speed (the 17-inch-past speed) which is fast enough to eliminate wobble near the hole.

Mark Your Dot-Spot Too

Yes dimples can affect putting. Or more precisely making contact on the edges of dimples can affect your putting. It’s not a large effect and it’s even less significant the harder you strike your putts. Also the effect doesn’t occur every time because if you place your ball down on the green in random orientations you’re more likely to strike the ball somewhere that won’t have an effect – on the spherical

Having marked your ball with its Balance-line (see section 9.9) rotate it until you locate the largest spherical surface (non-dimple) area on the Balance-line then circle it: This becomes your Dot-Spot (Figure 9.10.7). Set your ball so the Dot-Spot is at the back of the ball (away from the hole where it will be struck by the putter) when your Balance-line is aimed precisely along your Aimline. That way when you make contact there will never be a dimple effect.

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

At the end of step two, you reached the top of your backswing. As soon, as you get there, start your downswing. As you start the downswing, make sure to remind yourself to keep your arms “connected” to your chest and shoulders. Stay connected all the way through the ball. Your hands and arms only swing as the shoulders rotate. If you start your downswing by rotating your chest, without starting to swing your arms, you will most definitely end up slicing the ball. If you swing your arms before rotating your chest, you will most likely hook the ball. Staying connected will always produce the straightest ball.
