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:

Head Weight

The head design of the putter you select should he compatible with your ability to align it hit it solidly and have a good feel for distance with it. Heavier putterheads encourage golfers to swing more slowly sometimes leaving putts short; however heavier heads are good if your hands tend to be overactive during the stroke. Lighter putters give golfers with pendulum strokes a better feel for distance because they can make a large swing without rolling the ball too far; but in the hands of a golfer with a handsy stroke a lighter head can be a disaster.

Establish Your Practice Framework 257

If you suffer from the putting yips try a putter with extreme weight in both the head and the shaft. While not a cure it can help smooth out a yippy stroke allowing you to get through impact and keep playing and having fun while working on the problem (discussed in section 14.9).

Shaft Flex

Most golfers never consider the flex of their putter shaft but it is something that can help or hurt your success. Ben Crenshaw uses a very weak and flexible shaft because he wants to feel when his putterhead is in perfect rhythm with his stroke. He also wants to feel if his rhythm is off. Most graphite putter shafts which are both flexible and light help do this too.

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

Extract from the book:

To emphasize the power of this concept my “bad-flow-line” setup is shown in Figure 4.10.8. Look at my shoulder flow-line. From this position do you expect my putter to naturally swing (flow) down the Aimline? No way! It doesn’t do it when Perfy sets up and swings this way and it won’t swing down my Aimline either unless 1 compensate and use my muscles to make it do so.

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 99

Once your shoulders are in place your attention should turn to the flow-line through your forearms as they are next most important in determining how your putter will swing through the impact zone. While all of this may sound very simple and in truth it can be for some golfers it does not turn out that way. A sure sign of trouble is the golfer who carries his right (trailing) forearm above and outside the perfect forearm plane as shown in Figure 4.10.9. This is the forearm power position from which it is difficult for the right forearm to not move over and in front of the left forearm through impact. I can assure you that most golfers who putt from this forearm position miss putts to the left when they get excited anxious or scared.

Forearm rotation is probably the most frequent killer of putting strokes I see in my schools. The forearm-power position is easy to get into because it feels natural. Well it is natural but it’s still wrong and it is something you have to resist.

Some golfers even roll the right forearm over after starting with their forearms level (Figure 4.10.10). This happens because they rotate their forearms for every other shot in golf and it feels like the natural thing to do in their putting stroke too. Watch out for this trap! There is absolutely no reason to try to supply power or directional control to your putter from the rotation of your forearms. If you let your forearms swing back and through straight down the line and imagine main taining your forearms ‘ perfect parallel-left alignment you ll feel a perfectly natural putting stroke. And the back of your left hand and your putterface will remain square to your intended line at all times.

Eyes Hips Knees and Feet

The alignment of your eyes hips knees and feet flow-lines is important to your putting only in as much as they affect your brain or the orientation of your shoulder and forearm flow-lines. The problem is they can and do affect them for some golfers.

Golf Tuition Gleneagles Hotel Golf Course

Here is a view from the front. The goal of this photo is to show that there is no lateral movement. Simply rotating your right shoulder around your spine.*Please note that you should NOT be cocking your wrists at the end of your backswing. While this may add a bit of power, it will totally throw off your timing. The results of a wrist cock are slices, hooks, fat shots, etc.
