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?

Gillingham’s golf course has pleasant, narrow, tree lined fairways that belie how tough it is to hit both them and the small greens. It is some 5514 yards long and is a challenging test for players at all levels.

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

Extract from the book:

Vertical Rotation

Before we move on to the more “artistic” aspects of putting in the next chapter let’s discuss how your shoulders should move in the putting stroke. I ‘m not saying you should putt with your shoulders (although you could do worse) because

Improve Your Stroke Mechanics 301 when I do say that golfers tend to move their heads in the opposite direction from their putters. Apparently they assume their heads are sitting on their shoulders which they are not; your head sits on your spine. However when golfers are told to rock their shoulders they often rock their heads the other way (as seen earlier in the shadow motions shown in Figure 12.5.2).

But your shoulders will move when you swing your arms in a proper pendulum motion and if your hands are vertically below your shoulders during this time your shoulders should move in a vertical plane. To see and feel this motion stand in the middle of a doorway with a long broom handle or something similar held across your shoulders (use two strong rubber bands to hold the rod against your shoulders as shown in Figure 12.5.11). Without aiming at a target hole swing your putterhead parallel to the wall. If you rotate your shoulders at all horizontally the broom handle will bang into the doorjamb and immediately stop the motion. Just a few minutes of feeling proper vertical rotation motion which does not touch the broomstick to the doorjamb and you will get the right idea.

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.

Defining How the Ball Rolls

Before getting into the mechanics of the putting stroke I’ll define some vocabulary which will help keep things simple and easy to understand throughout the book. In our Scoring Game Schools we routinely use words or phrases that you may not be familiar with. We do this because we’ve found that many golfers refer to the same things using different terms and sometimes use the same terms to describe different things.

Keep focusing on bringing your right shoulder back and around your spine. Some of you may be able to turn about 90 degrees around your spine as shown in the picture on the left. Others may only be able to turn 45 degrees around your spine. Either is okay, but do not start moving other parts of the body to compensate for not being able to make a full shoulder turn. Stop when it gets uncomfortable. The important part is to STAY CONNECTED. When your left arm becomes parallel to the ground, stop your swing.
