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:

In our schools we have learned that the most efficient way a golfer can learn proper aim is to separate how it is learned from his stroke results. It usually takes three to six weeks of nightly practice with a feedback device. You can’t do this outdoors putting on a real green because there is no feedback on proper aim there (whether a putt goes in or not doesn’t show you where you aimed). In fact it’s possible to putt for the rest of your life on a putting green and never improve your aim.

The “LazrAimer”

The most efficient way to teach your brain what perfect putter alignment looks like (that is when the putterface is perfectly aligned to your Aimline) is with a device called the LazrAimer (Figure 11.7.1). We use this device with every student in our three-day schools to measure their ability to aim and teach them how to improve this ability. The LazrAimer actually doubles the visible manifestation of the mistake (Figure 11.7.2) which is good because after practicing with it for a while and beginning to improve it points out the remaining errors no matter how small. Although three days of practice is not enough to learn to aim well it gives students a start and makes them very aware of the problem. By the time they leave us they know that if they don’t learn to aim properly any work they do to improve their strokes will probably he wasted.

The LazrAimer shines a low-power laser beam onto a small mirror attached to the putterface. After aiming the putter at the LazrAimer to the best of your ability you say “on” to voice-activate the beam which turns on for a few seconds

264 Establish Your Practice Framework bounces off the putterface back to the wall and shows any error in alignment.

Golfers who practice with this device dramatically improve their ability to aim seeing results in as little as five minutes. However by the next day most of that improvement has disappeared. Our experience shows that it takes about three weeks for improvement to make it to the golf course. Even years after learning to aim properly some Tour professionals work with their LazrAimers in their hotel rooms to keep their aim “spot-on.”

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

Extract from the book:

So if you are going to make a stroke error of 45 degrees which result would you rather see? A putt off-line by 7 degrees or 37 degrees? I’m sure you now agree with me that if you want to putt consistently along your intended Aimline you’d better learn to keep your putterface angle square to that line (the square face angle advantage of the pils vs. screen-door stroke should

Perfectly Square … Never! now be obvious). And if you have some free time Trying to get your putterface square what part of your stroke are you going to practice? at impact with a screen-door stroke is Right again: Spend at least four times more time like trying to be “exactly on-time.”

You can never do it. You’re either working on keeping the face angle square to your early or you’re late by a minute a sec-Aimline than you do on perfecting your stroke ond a millisecond or a nanosecond.

Your impact point – where you tently square when you need it! make contact with the ball – is even more important still!

The point of contact between your putter and the ball determines how much energy is transferred to the ball at the moment of impact. And the amount of energy your putts receive determines both how fast and far the balls will roll and how much your putts will break. Most golfers believe the distance their putts roll is determined strictly by the length and force of their swing. That’s true only if they transfer a consistent percentage of energy from putter to ball at impact. And that is seldom the case.

The Sweetspot

A common term in sports is “sweetspot.” Tennis players talk about hitting the sweetspot of the racquet; baseball players like to crack the ball on the sweetspot of the bat. Why? Because when contact is made there it feels good and maximum energy is transferred to the ball. The same is true for a putter in golf: The sweet-spot is that place where contact feels the most solid which eliminates all rotation and wobble of the putterhead at impact (Figure 4.9.1) and which transfers the maximum energy possible from the stroke to the ball. If you do everything correctly your impact point will be the sweetspot of your putter.

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.
