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:

2. I believe the more you ask your subconscious to compensate the less accurately it can perform those compensations and the worse you will putt.

There is a test that will show which of us is right and the favor I ask is that you run that test.

Play an entire 18-hole round aiming your body and putter straight at every hole for every putt. Read the break as you normally would so you know how much break you think there is but then instead of aiming for that much break aim straight at the hole. Set up in your normal address position as if every putt were dead straight. Then try to make your putts by letting your subconscious and conscious minds work together pulling and pushing (loop-stroking) to compensate for the break you read but didn ‘t set-up to play for (Figure 7.8.1).

My bet is that you will say at the end of this round “This is making putting too difficult. It’s really hard to make breaking putts this way.”

Larger Compensations Are More Difficult in the past you’ve been depending on your subconscious to compensate for the two-thirds of the break above your normal under-read (about 30 percent of the true break). This test adds the original break you read (the visible break you believe is the true break) to the 70 percent of the break you don’t believe is there anyway to see if your subconscious can handle that too. I think you’ll find as i have that the farther you set up and aim away from the true-break Aimline the worse you’ll putt. The bigger the compensation the more difficult it is to make it accurately. The simpler the better … again.

7.9 Facts About Break

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

Extract from the book:

I tested the razor-blade putter versus an identical putter with a normal face and counted how many putts each one holed. On very short putts – inside three feet – the razor putter performed pretty well. However on longer putts it created true initial overspin that caused the balls to “grab” on the green and jump forward uncontrollably.

But there was more. If the grass was damp or I was putting against the grain the overspin didn’t take and the ball didn’t travel as far; when the grass was dry or when putting with the grain the spinning ball grabbed and jumped forward to roll widely divergent distances. So overspin if you could create it causes inconsistency. Which is why I say “Forget about it!”

Physical and Mental Factors

4.10 Ball Position Posture and Flow-Lines

In sections 4.4 through 4.9 the factors discussed are the building blocks involved with the swinging action of your putting stroke mechanics. From here on in this chapter the factors I’ll explain will be ones relating to your body mind and equipment. While all of these are less familiar and less popular to work on than the other fundamentals of stroke mechanics that doesn’t mean they won’t be important to your success on the greens.

For example say you employ a very unusual putting posture but it’s one you like and lets you execute a perfect stroke consistently and repeatedly. Then I say it’s absolutely acceptable. If it works and you like it it’s okay with me no matter how odd or unconventional it seems. However if anything about your unusual posture adversely affects one or more of the fundamentals of stroke mechanics then you should change it. So all of the following are important only in how they influence your stroke.

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

Extract from the book:

Focus on using your spine as your axis now. Turn both shoulders and sides directly around your spine. Keep your left arm locked, and your left wrist locked. Although difficult to see from this camera-angle, the triangle is still perfectly in tact.
