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:

Once you have a plan of where you ‘re going and can create the mind’s-eye images of how you’re going to look when you get there you ‘re on your way. Whether you do it by yourself with your local golf professional or in one of our one-day clinics or three-day schools what has to be done has to be done. Because if you don’t improve your putting skills your putting results won’t improve either.

10.4 Fourth Find Your Prescription for Improvement

The next step is to learn how to improve – that is how to get your putting skills from where they are to where you want them to be. Most golfers don’t have a clue of what is required. They don’t know how to practice properly. They don’t realize that the key to learning is immediate accurate and reliable feedback. They don’t realize that their brain can internalize fantastic amounts of information if it is presented in an organized and accurate fashion. And they don’t realize how important it is to keep inaccurate information out of the process.

I estimate that only about 10 percent of the golfers I’ve seen practicing putting on their own actually improve. That’s right only 1 in 10. About 40 percent don’t see any real improvement while half of them get worse. Why? Again they practice the wrong thing or the right thing the wrong way. For most golfers this is what makes putting seem so mysterious. If you work on the wrong aspect of your stroke it can create a new problem somewhere else and one by one you can go through every building block of your putting systematically destroying them all.

In many cases putting better is not difficult. In fact it’s often easier than what you are doing now. But whatever your situation I encourage you to finish this chapter then carefully read all of Chapters 11 12 and 13 before deciding what you’re going to do for your putting game. First determine what needs to be fixed and then learn how to fix it before you try to fix it.

10.5 Fifth: Do It !

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

Extract from the book:

Opening or closing your stance by moving your feet off the flow-line is accept able but not recommended. Because your stance can affect your shoulder align ment and the line of your shoulders is vital to good putting I normally recom mend setting the feet square. Of course it is possible to move your feet open or closed without moving your shoulders. Just be sure your shoulder flow-line re mains parallel-left to your Aimline.

My measurements also show that many of the world’s best putters create a stable lower body by placing slightly more than half – 55 to 60 percent – of their weight on their forward foot.

Elbows

Something else to watch out for in your putting stroke motion is any change in your elbow angles. I am told that early in the career of Arnold Palmer his father

Deacon told him the secret to putting was to keep his putter low going back and low coming through. However the only way you can keep the club low to the ground is to extend and contract your elbows: Extend them during your back- swing contract them as you swing through impact then extend them again on your follow-through. I believe this complex set of motions – plus a propensity to power his putts with a wrist hinge – is what destroyed Arnold’s putting in the latter portion of his career.

I don’t mean to criticize Arnold or Deacon Palmer because Arnold putted well enough to be one of the best players of all time. But I’m convinced that with his fantastic imagination talent and competitive instincts (he certainly never had the best golf swing) he would have been even more dominant and for a longer time if he had used a simpler putting stroke and been a better putter.

Position the golf ball in the manner previously described, then stand straight up. Your knees are not locked, but they are close to locked. Your back is perfectly straight. Your chest should be out. It won’t feel right to have your back straight and chest protruding. It will look and feel “exaggeratedâ€
