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:

Establish Your Practice Framework 239 shoulder alignment so there’s a much greater chance of success keeping their shoulders and forearms in good positions if the lower body also is square to the Aimline.

A final word on flow-lines. Most golfers don’t have much trouble setting them properly parallel to the Aimline on straight putts once they learn how and why to do it. Without this instruction however they aim their flow-lines in many different directions (Figure 11.5.11). This causes great difficulty when it comes to breaking putts where they have no idea of where to align themselves. You can make all alignment simple by always forgetting about everything during setup except the Aimline: Concentrate on first setting up to it then putting along it (Figure 11.5.12). This is just one more reason for going through the steps outlined in previous chapters (and the ones to follow) to help you find the perfect Aimline on every putt.

Stance and Ball Position The perfect putting stance assuming everything else is normal is to set your feet shoulder-width apart. (In section 4.10 I explain that stance width is measured from the center of your feet and the center of your shoulders: Wider than this is okay but sometimes a little uncomfortable; narrower usually is not as stable.)

Once you’re standing properly the ball should be positioned just ahead of the bottom of the stroke arc so it will be launched only slightly upward at impact (Figure 11.5.13). For most golfers this puts perfect ball position about an inch

(Figure 11.5.14) and – this is important (as you’ ll see in section 11.7 below) – vertically under your eye flow-line. An easy way to see and measure this position is to practice with a small mirror on a flat floor (it helps to place a thin piece of col ored tape down the middle of the mirror to represent the Aimline). Once you see that your stance is perfect relative to the Aimline and that your eyes are vertically above the Aimline measure the distance between your toe line and the inside edge of the ball. This distance as shown in Figure 11.5.15 is usually about the length of

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

Back to what 1 said at the beginning of this chapter: Simpler is better. Because the mechanics of a pendulum motion get the job done and because they are the simplest then they must be the best. And they are the best because they are easier to learn and master than any of the more complex motions.

But be careful because there is not just one single pendulum motion. A pendulum stroke can be swung down the line around the body or across the line. It can be swung with the face rotating or with the face kept square. It can be pushed or pulled or allowed to swing in a consistent natural rhythm.

The best of all these is the simplest of the simple the pure-in-line vertically swinging face-always-square natural-rhythm pendulum. It is the way to go if you want to putt your most consistently and most successfully.

I know it took a little time to get through all the possible strokes from the hardest to the easiest. But it is important that you understand the big picture of putting. It will help if you want to putt your best because at some point in your putting practice you’re going to doubt that what you’re doing is right that what you’re doing is working. And that’s when you’re going to fall back on the knowledge imparted here that to putt your best you must commit to the simplest stroke that will work for you and then believe in it. Come hell or high water – or missing 20 putts in a row – you must believe in the stroke you have committed to and stay with it until you groove it and own it. Only then can you ever hope to move toward achieving your personal optimum putting performances.

So let ‘s get into the putting methods techniques and systems most golfers use find out which is best for you and learn how to incorporate them mold them refine them and fit them into a system that will allow you to improve and then optimize your ability to putt.

I want you to understand the purpose of this technique before providing the details. It’s an easy technique that will produce fantastic results. You don’t need to have a long and complicated back swing to send the ball a long way down the fairway. Try taking, what you believe to be, a half swing. The ball will go almost as far. It may not leave the clubface with the same speed, but it also will not slice 40 yards to the right. Which shot would you rather have on a golf course? The drill I’m about to teach you will help you consistently keep the ball in the fairway, and give you better accuracy with all of your clubs.
