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.

5.5 Putt in Your Personal Rhythm

The power in a golfer’s hit stroke is the product of the speed timing and muscle strength (adrenaline-aided or not) of the golfer. So what produces the power of a dead-hands stroke? It’s simply the length and rhythm of the stroke. So putting this

Five Nonphysical Building Blocks: Touch Feel Attitude Routine and Ritual 121 way becomes easier. Not easy mind you but easier. In this regard putting is similar to the rest of golf. If you swing in a rhythm consistent with the way you naturally move your body then your consistency becomes a function of your talent and technique which is how it should be. This means putting with a rhythm consistent with your personality body size weight and walking pace. All athletic motions become more consistent and repeatable when performed to a consistent rhythm. This doesn’t mean you should swing the putter at a speed that exactly matches your walking pace. But fast walkers generally should have faster putting stroke paces than slow walkers. I’ll explain more about your best putting rhythm in section 6.5. Until then accept that you must putt “within yourself;’ or at your own body rhythm to putt your best.

Whether or not you have decided to take the hit out of your stroke understand that a putting stroke with a repeatable rhythm will always outperform one with an inconsistent herky-jerky motion. A natural consistent repeatable rhythm improves your results regardless of your stroke mechanics. So you shouldn’t be surprised to learn that the beneficial effects of rhythm are magnified under pressure. When you arc scared and distracted your subconscious reverts to your most deeply ingrained tendencies and you want those to be putting with good rhythm. So that’s how you should practice. Be sure you aren’t rushing your putts or just beating balls and watch every putt until it stops. And when you superimpose good rhythm on top of a good dead-hands stroke you’ ll begin to see improved results both in practice and on the course.

Look at Figure 5.5.1 to see how the feel and touch for distance of several PGA Tour pros I work with compares to that of the amateurs in our schools. Fortu- nately there is no law against improving one’s putting feel and touch so with some work yours can become more like that of the pros’. In Chapter 13 I’ll de scribe excellent learning aids for both of these skills. Once you know your best putting rhythm and how best to practice it all it takes is a little practice and time to see big improvements in your feel and touch.

5.6 Two Types of Muscle Memory

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

Extract from the book:

The True Roller is the easiest way to putt because it is as simple as starting the ball on the right line (in the right direction) and at the right speed. But that doesn’t mean it is easy. I know because I use it all the time in my research to determine the right speed and the right line and it can take me many tries to find the perfect release point and direction. But once I’ve got them I can roll the same putt exactly the same way over and over and over again. And ultimately that’s what you want your putting stroke to do. So the True Roller is as close to the ideal as I’ve found.

Shooting Pool

Not quite as easy as the ‘true Roller but fairly close is rolling the ball as if you are shooting pool. In Figure 3.2.2 I ‘m demonstrating this technique on a practice putting green. l’ve actually putted like this a number of times on a number of dif ferent greens and grass types because it proved to me just how important speed is to good putting. When “pool putting ” starting the ball on the chosen line is sim ple but it doesn’t help you choose the line and giving the ball the proper speed is just as difficult as it is when standing up and using your putter. Again this is not a method I think the USGA should allow. I’m merely explaining that it’s not nearly as easy as you might expect it to be. (If you don ‘t believe me get a pool cue and try using it on some breaking putts on your practice green.) Just as with the True

Roller you have to find the right speed if you hope to make anything.

Both of these methods are easier than other types of putting because they remove or at least reduce the difficulty of starting the ball on the desired line. But the pool method for sure (and to a certain extent the True Roller) is just as difficult as most other methods in transferring the correct speed to the ball.

This is a point worth repeating because most golfers don’t think enough about the speed of their putts. Rather they focus on line. If you are a “line” putter try putting with a pool cue or a True Roller and I promise you’ll learn to appreciate the importance of speed in making putts.

3.3 It Gets More Difficult

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

First of all, it’s important that you realize that your grip will affect the results that you get. However, it’s not as complicated as the other systems make it out to be. First, grab the club with your right hand so the face of it is toward the target. Keep the face pointed toward the target, while placing your left hand on the bottom of the grip or handle. At this point you should be holding your left hand out flat, so that it is touching the bottom of the grip. Position the joint where your left pinky meets your palm directly underneath the handle of the club. Keep the pinky there and place the first joint in your left forefinger directly underneath the club. Now, do not lift your fingers up, bringing the grip of the club into your palm; instead, hold the handle steady with your left fingers and wrap your palm around the top of the grip. This is an important distinction. Again, don’t wrap the fingers towards the palm, but instead wrap your palm around the top of the club. Now, you should be able to easily place your left thumb directly on top of the club. This should form a V-shape where your left thumb and left forefinger meet. This V-shape should point directly to your right shoulder when it’s complete.
