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:

Now playing 70 percent of the break is much better than playing 30 percent but it still isn’t enough. Yes the subconscious compensation corrects for a major portion of most players’ inability to read greens but even correcting to 70 percent means most golfers still should miss their putts on the low side of the hole.

But again this is not the end of the story.

7.4 The In-Stroke Correction Now take a look at what happened when these golfers actually made their strokes. Remember they professed to playing less than a third of the true-break then stood over their putts and aimed for 65 to 75 percent of the true-break value. Then believe it or not as they swung their putters they subconsciously made in-stroke compensations to pull or push their putts onto a starting line at between 85 and 95 percent of the true break (Figure 7.4.1). It was amazing but it happened almost every time and still happens whenever I run the test. When I first started researching this behavior I thought “How could golfers not know they are doing this?” I’ve since learned a very important lesson: In golf the subconscious always wins. Golfers do many things they are not aware of. They don’t swing the way they think they swing (for proof watch some one’s face the first time he sees his swing on video) and they don’t play anywhere near the same break they think they’re playing when they putt.

It Is Amazing

Take a look at the in-stroke compensations. If you tried to think about them consciously trying to turn or correct your putterface angle and path during your stroke I don’t think you could do it. Yet there’s absolutely no question that your subconscious can and does do it all the time. And actually does it pretty well all things considered rerouting the putter so the starting line of your putt is almost (hut not quite) on the 100 percent correct line.

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

Extract from the book:

You will see many balls and test results from balls rolled from the True Roller in this book. Remember that the True Roller is simply starting each ball in a given direction at the given speed. And that is what putting is all about.

Look next at the top of Figure 2.6.5 which shows how far the same five balls will roll on an uphill putt (released from the True Roller each with the same energy as before). The uphill putts stop closer together (the distance between the longest and shortest balls is 7.5 feet) indicating that on uphill putts balls tend to roll closer to the same distance. This means the roll of an uphill putt is less sensitive to the length of the stroke than putts on a level surface. The lesson is that even if you don’t hit all of your uphill putts the right speed be sure to get them past the hole.

That gives them a chance to go in and the longest ones will probably stop near enough to the hole to leave no-brainers coming back.

Now look at the bottom of Figure 2.6.5 to see how far these same putts roll given the same amount of starting energy on a straight downhill putt. There ‘s a big difference from the level and uphill putts. Of course each downhill putt rolls farther but more important the spread of distances between balls has increased meaning the roll distance is more sensitive to energy input. Now the distance between the longest and shortest balls is 18 feet. So your downhill stroke has to be about three times more precise than your uphill stroke to stop a putt at the right distance. When putting downhill make a stroke of the wrong speed and you’ll have trouble making your next putt.

I’m not saying that understanding putting like this will make you a great putter. But I am saying that understanding nature’s rules and where the dangers lie in putting can help you be a better putter. And not understanding what putting is all about will make it even more difficult for you to learn to putt well.

So if you don’t know that downhill putts break more than uphill putts on the same slope (covered in Chapter 7) then you won’t be making many downhill-breaking putts. Or if you believe that Bobby Locke and Ben Crenshaw struck their putts with overspin to make them dive into the hole then it’s unlikely that you’ll work on those aspects of your putting that actually can help you putt better (see section 4.9).

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

Extract from the book:

Now just line everything up with that item and fire away. This method won’t cure all of your alignment problems, but it does give you a simple way to assure that you are on the right path. Many students have the habit of lining up way left or way right of the target. When the ball goes where they are “aiming”, they think they have a problem. If your ball consistently goes left or right of target, but flies straight, then your problem is your alignment. Try this simple method before every shot on the course and you’ll definitely drop a few strokes.
