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:

For example I estimate that for every inch the body moves toward the target during the putting stroke the ball moves an additional foot on the green. And rotating the lower body not only adds power it also causes the putterface to rotate from open to closed.

Putting is a game in which delicate feel and touch create exactly the right speed and break of your putts. When you’re trying to be precise body power causes nothing but trouble.

School students turn (top) slide (middle) and reverse (bottom) their bodies during their putting stroke motions.

The final power source is the best power source the gentle swinging of the arms (which also involves the shoulders). Think about a grandfather clock in which the pendulum swings back and forth with a gentle constant rhythmic motion. Now imagine your arms are connected at your shoulders at one end and at the putter at the other end forming a triangle as shown in Figure 4.5.3. Imagine letting this triangle become the pendulum of a grandfather clock (Figure 4.5.4) swinging back and forth with the same gentle constant motion. This is what I call a pendulum putting stroke and it’s the best stroke I know because it is the most easily repeatable and predictable (plus additional benefits as you will soon see).

A pendulum stroke works under pressure because adrenaline-filled muscles don’t get to determine how far the ball rolls. In this stroke putting speed and roll are determined solely by the length of the stroke motion. As a result if you practice controlling speed this way you can be sure that it will work on the course and under pressure the same way. And that’s what you want.

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

Extract from the book:

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.

It is possible to miss the sweetspot either in the vertical plane (hitting the ball too high or too low on the face) or the horizontal plane (making contact toward the toe or the heel of the putter). Any of these misses by as little as a fraction of an inch results in a mis-hit and a loss of energy. But you don’t need to worry because in Chapter 12 I will show you how to measure and mark your putter sweetspot and then learn to hit the ball there repeatedly and consistently.

The Quality of Impact

Before we get there however I want you to learn how important your impact point is to your putting. Look at the impact patterns shown on the following two pages (Figure 4.9.2). These patterns are all authentic test results made by golfers on the first day in our Scoring Game Schools. Note they are arranged by handicap with the lowest handicaps at the top left down to the highest handicaps at the bottom right. Also note that the approximate location of the sweetspot of each putter is indicated by the line near the center of each impact tape.

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

Extract from the book:

Here is a picture at full speed. The wrists have completed their roll through the ball. The left elbow is close to the body, and about ready to break, allowing for follow through.Now, I’ll take you into the follow-through. This will be simple. Basically just keep turning around your spine. If you have flipped your wrists correctly, you won’t have to bother too much with the follow through. However, there is a basic position that you should be in when you finish the swing. You should be facing the target, and your right and left forearms should be crossed. Your right forearm should be closest to you, and the club should be out towards left field.
