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:

The more common way to soften impact is to strike the ball out on the toe of the putter well away from the sweetspot. This technique will affect your putts in two ways. First your putts will roll with less than the normal amount of speed which is what you want. Second and what you don’t want is they will start slightly off-line because the putterface rotates open at impact (Figure 14.5.1). So while it’s good that they won’t roll too far past the hole you seldom make these putts.

A better way to remove power is to grip down the shaft of your putter to make it effectively shorter. For any given motion of your hands the shorter the shaft the less power is transmitted to the ball. Then still stroke the putts solidly on the sweetspot. This combination not only reduces the speed of your putts it also starts them online retaining your chance of holing the putt if you have read the green correctly.

Use this grip-down technique on “killer downhillers ” when you fear losing the

Face Your Special Problems 353 putt past the hole even if you stroke it as gently as you can. A good example of how to use this technique is illustrated by two-time U.S. Open champion Lee Janzen (Figure 14.5.2). On the left Lee is holding his putter at normal length which you should do as you make your practice swings and preview stroke. When he steps into his final address position ready to start his ritual and putt (shown on the right) he grips down on his putter (the softer he wants to impact the putt the farther he grips down). This gives him the best stroke his touch and feel can create through his preview stroke plus the added benefit of using a slightly shorter putter to take that last little bit of power out of a really scary putt.

How much speed will a toe strike or gripping down take out? Only you can answer that and only by practicing on the actual slopes and greens you play. Again don’t use either of these techniques for normal downhill putts. You want to hit those solidly as close to the sweetspot as you can using your normal well-developed putting touch to control your putt ‘s speed.

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

Extract from the book:

There was another cage of pigeons which had the same number of identical-looking pellet dispensers. But these dispensers worked differently. They released pellets randomly. Sometimes pellets were released without the levers being touched. Sometimes they were released when the lever was touched once. And sometimes when the lever was touched nothing would happen. In time some of the pigeons thought that when they lifted their right wing a pellet was released. Some of the pigeons thought that if they chirped they would get a pellet. And some of the pigeons believed that if they turned in circles in front of the dispenser they would get a pellet. In two months none of the pigeons learned to feed themselves. In fact it was humorous watching the second cage: every pigeon practicing a different move hoping to release a pellet.

It reminds me of a practice putting green filled with golfers. One golfer is prac ticing a new grip. Another has widened his stance and is bending over more than he used to while his friend is trying the split-hand grip he saw on television. An other golfer is trying to learn a short backswing and “pop” stroke. All these golfers practicing something that they actually did just before they happened to make a putt hoping it will help them make another one.

And that is what you see if you look at many putting greens today. Golfers practicing practicing and practicing – who knows what they are practicing? – all hoping their putting will improve. Some of them practice a different thing every day and use a different stroke in every round. Some golfers even use several differ ent strokes during one round. Yes sir-ee they remind me of a bunch of pigeons!

Something else you need to think about before actually beginning to work on your stroke are the answers to a few questions. They are important questions but only if you want to know just how good your putting can get: (1) How good are the world’s best putters? (2) How well do you putt now? (3) How good can one get at putting? (4) How good will your putting be in the future?

Let me answer these as best I can:

I believe the best putters in the world are playing on the PGA Tour. My proof is the results of the first two World Putting Championships where the Tour pros were seriously challenged by some Senior Tour players several LPGA Tour players and a number of amateurs both young and old. However the PGA Tour players placed higher as a group than any other.

Also my data on the percentage of putts holed from different distances shows that the PGA Tour players lead all other groups. Don’t think that you can look at the statistics quoted in the newspapers and find this information because the number that the papers publish (provided by the Tour) simply show how many putts the players average on greens hit in regulation which is affected by the quality of their iron shots (the better the iron play the shorter their putts). And these are the new putting stats. Years ago the Tour’s statistics measured putts taken per green which was influenced by how many greens players missed and how consistently they chipped close to the hole (again leaving them shorter putts). Neither of these statistics measures the quality of a player’s putting because both are strongly influenced by the quality of different shots (approaches and chips).

After we get through the remaining sections, you will understand that this will change your swing plane a bit. Your swing plane will become more horizontal, the straighter you stand up. Please realize that nothing else should change. You will swing each of your clubs in exactly the same fashion (found below). This repositioning at setup will have a huge effect on the outcome of your shot, so please take some time to see where you are the most comfortable.
