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?

On 11th October 1907 11 gentlemen, including a physician, a schoolmaster, and several cotton manufacturers met at Mrs Hudson’s Café in Earby to propose the formation of a golf club with a 5/- entrance fee and an annual subscription of one and a half guineas for gentleman and one guinea for ladies.

Dave Pelz’s Putting Bible – golf’s least understood skill.

Extract from the book:

The preshot routine for putting is the procedure you go through before every putt to properly prepare yourself to execute the perfect ritual and stroke. This routine of preparation starts immediately after you have decided what you are going to do (by reading the green) and prepares both your mind and body for how you are going to do it. Please note: Don’t confuse the term “routine” (which refers to preparing to stroke a putt) with the term “ritual” (which when talking about your preshot procedure is actually part of the execution of your putting stroke as you’ll see later in this chapter).

The putting routine is different from the routine I recommend for the short game which includes decisions relating to the lie of the ball in the grass green conditions hazards and the management decisions made while weighing one shot against another. In putting everything that precedes the preparation routine is included in your green-reading process which I will deal with in section 13.3.

A Five-Step Routine

Assume you have walked off your putt distance finished reading the green and decided to play your putt dead-straight into the cup. It is now time to start your routine. In position – standing directly behind your ball on your selected Aimline – I recommend you build a routine that includes the following steps:

Step 1. While standing approximately six feet behind your ball in a fairly upright posture with your eyes in a horizontal position imagine your entire ball track from the ball into the hole and as you do so make three preliminary practice swings (Figure 11.2.1). The purpose of these swings is to get a first feel and vision of the stroke length required for this putt. Do this with your head up so your eyes are horizontal providing perfect binocular vision of the distance. Look at the hole as you feel your swing and try to imagine if your swing feels about the correct size

Establish Your Practice Framework 223 to roll the perfect putt on the perfect ball track. Focus on the hole to see and feel the distance to it. Make your second swing while looking down at your stroke. Follow this with another look to the hole again to judge and feel the distance.

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

Extract from the book:

But be careful because there is not just one single pendulum motion. A pendulum stroke can be swung down the line around the body or across the line. It can be swung with the face rotating or with the face kept square. It can be pushed or pulled or allowed to swing in a consistent natural rhythm.

The best of all these is the simplest of the simple the pure-in-line vertically swinging face-always-square natural-rhythm pendulum. It is the way to go if you want to putt your most consistently and most successfully.

I know it took a little time to get through all the possible strokes from the hardest to the easiest. But it is important that you understand the big picture of putting. It will help if you want to putt your best because at some point in your putting practice you’re going to doubt that what you’re doing is right that what you’re doing is working. And that’s when you’re going to fall back on the knowledge imparted here that to putt your best you must commit to the simplest stroke that will work for you and then believe in it. Come hell or high water – or missing 20 putts in a row – you must believe in the stroke you have committed to and stay with it until you groove it and own it. Only then can you ever hope to move toward achieving your personal optimum putting performances.

So let ‘s get into the putting methods techniques and systems most golfers use find out which is best for you and learn how to incorporate them mold them refine them and fit them into a system that will allow you to improve and then optimize your ability to putt.

THE FIFTEEN BUILDING BLOCKS OF PUTTING

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics

4.1 First Some Definitions In this and the next three chapters I will discuss the 15 building blocks of putting what they are how they work and what they mean to your ability to roll your puns into the hole. First I’ll list them all here (Figure 4.1.1) then define a few terms to enable us to keep our communications straight. Then I ‘ll jump in by detailing the seven blocks that deal with putting stroke mechanics.

Position the golf ball in the manner previously described, then stand straight up. Your knees are not locked, but they are close to locked. Your back is perfectly straight. Your chest should be out. It won’t feel right to have your back straight and chest protruding. It will look and feel “exaggeratedâ€
