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:

(touch) to a fine degree you’ve got to know exactly how far it is that you’re supposed to roll the ball.

Triangle Drill

This is my favorite touch-development drill. Pick three holes. Walk from the first hole to the second count your steps and determine the distance. Walk from the second hole to the third and repeat your distance measurement. Then walk from the third hole back to the first completing the triangle.

You now know the three distances of 12 different putts as shown in Figure

13.2.3. First putt around the triangle in a clockwise direction from the outside of each hole. Then putt around again in the clockwise direction but this time from the inside of each hole. After these six putts play the triangle counterclockwise from both inside and outside of the triangle. You’ve tried 12 different putts four of each distance. By walking (and remembering) only three distances you can test your touch to sense the subtle differences required for each of the four putting situations (back and forth inside and outside the triangle) to each hole.

Edge-of-Green Drill putting to the far edge of the practice green is a good drill for a course you don’t know. It will both acquaint you with the speed of the greens and warm up your stroke mechanics. Take three balls and walk off the distance from one edge of the green to another. putt that distance back to where you started from (Figure 13.2.4).

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

Extract from the book:

In Figure 4.7.5 I put the camera perfectly face-on to Perfy as he makes the same pils stroke but this time I moved in a little closer and removed the gridlines to emphasize the effect. Now doesn’t that putterface look like it’s rotating screen-dooring through impact? I promise you it is not! Perfy’s swing was no different; it’s only the appearance (an optical illusion) that has changed.

My point is great putters have their putterfaces square to their Aimlines through impact what you see in photographs on TV or in person notwithstanding. That’s one of the reasons they putt so well. If the camera is not on-line or if gridlines aren’t present to reference your vision you can’t believe what you see because of the optical illusions. Even standing face-on watching a player putt at a tournament your eyes (and those of playing and teaching pros) deceive you in the same way. You’ve got to get your eyes (or the camera) either on-line or vertically above a swing motion to see if it’s on-line and rotating or not (as in Figure 4.7.2 where you can accurately compare the rotation of screen-door vs. pits stroke motions).

82 The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics it’s important to realize that the putter shaft is not the pendulum of the stroke and the lie of the putter shaft does not affect the path of your stroke unless it makes you move your hands. Figure 4.7.6 shows the path of a vertical pendulum stroke with two different putters with different shaft angles: You can see that both swing in a pure-in-line-square motion all the way.

Everyone Can Swing On-Line and Square

Away from physics and hack to golf. As long as your putting triangle (Figure 4.7.7) remains intact so the elbow and wrist angles don’t change during the stroke and your forearms don’t rotate there is a position of your hands somewhere under your shoulders that will produce a pure-in-line-square stroke. This stroke is perfectly natural with no involvement of the muscles of your hands wrists or forearms. This lack of hand action is what we call a “dead-hands” stroke. (Note: The perfect vertical pendulum hand position can be influenced by the musculature of your shoulders and arms. Golfers with either very muscular or slender arms may find the spot isn’t precisely under their shoulders – but pretty close – due to the weight balance of the arms hands and putter.)

You’ve now had it proven that it is not only possible but also natural to swing your putter in a pure straight-line motion without any hand or forearm manipulations. And it’s equally possible and natural to swing your putter around or away from your body. Which stroke do you think lets you putt best? To me it’s obvious that the pure-in-line-square (pils) stroke is the simplest and best way to putt.

The wrists have completed their roll, and the left elbow is close the body.Swinging around the spine. The wrists have completed the roll and now the forearms are crossing. The follow through is almost complete. If you notice, the triangle is still in place, proving that you are connected throughout the entire swing.
