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:

Stability and Rhythm: Two Artistic Fundamentals 135

I explained how the stroke mechanics of a pendulum motion are simple and well adapted to a putting stroke. However there is an additional benefit to Perfy ‘s pendulum motion something that makes Perfy’s stroke the one to emulate. That would be its rhythm.

Look at the three strokes Perfy is making in Figure 6.3.1. Obviously each stroke is a different length and if you imagine Perfy putting you can also imagine that the putts rolled farther as his stroke motion got longer. As I’ve mentioned several times already this is a fundamental principle of a smooth rhythmic putting stroke: The longer the length of the stroke the longer the roll of the ball.

There’s nothing new about this concept: Golfers expect a longer stroke to produce a longer roll. But what golfers don’t expect is that all three of Perfy’s strokes – regardless of their length – take the same time from beginning to end. From the top of the backswing to the end of the follow-through all three strokes took exactly 0.70 seconds.

If you’re surprised you either don’t understand putting or you don’t understand physics. The rhythm of a pendulum – or the length of time needed for each complete swinging motion – is the same regardless of its swing length. That’s why we use grandfather clocks to tell time because as the lengths of their swings decay the timing of their swing motions remains constant. If it were possible to produce a pendulum motion swinging from a friction-free suspension point in a perfect vacuum (no air to create resistance) it would swing in the same rhythm (take the same amount of time) forever no matter how long the swing.

How does this relate to your putting? Simple. Your stroke should always take the same amount of time and should always move at the same rhythm for all putts regardless of putt length (Figure 6.3.2) or the length of your stroke. as you look at all of the pendulum swings and putting strokes in this figure. That’s right they all take exactly the same amount of time to swing from one extreme to the other.

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).

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

As you can see in the image to the left, the back remains straight while bending over to the ball. All of the bending is done at the hips. Bending at the waist and keeping a straight back will promote great ball flight and consistency. The relationship between the arms and chest has not changed.
