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:

Several months down the road when you are making 80 percent solid contact using the pro-size ‘leacher Putting Clip you will have to make a choice about your next step. You can either move to the super-pro clip or begin using the pro clip in side the Putting Track (Figure 12.3.7). Both will help you groove a Tour-quality i mpact pattern.

No matter which step you take your ultimate goal is to become good enough to make better than 75 percent solid contact with the super-pro clip in the Putting Track your metronome beeping and Elk’s Key getting you started perfectly every time. Once you can do that you’ll no longer have a contact problem. At that point you’ll find that your feel and touch for distance have improved dramatically and you will be holing more putts on the course in the medium-length range. Your putting speed control will have improved significantly and three-putting likely will he a problem of the past.

12.4 Fix Your Face Angle

If your putterface angle is not square to your Aimline at impact you have a serious putting problem. In fact you have at least two problems. Because face-angle errors are transferred to your putts so efficiently if face angle were your only problem you would probably be missing every putt. So in addition to your face-angle error you must be making at least one compensation to counteract it (or else you really are missing every putt in which case you’re probably about to give up the game for good).

A Hard Truth About Compensations

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

Extract from the book:

As I continue to detail the various options you have for putting you should know that some of the legal ways are easier than others (yet not one is truly easy). And here’s the kicker: Only one will work best for you.

As 1 mentioned above l’m moving from the more to the less complex in terms of having to perform manipulations and actions to make these strokes happen. That means I’m going to finish with the method I think is the easiest. You can skip ahead if you like but 1’d suggest reading through the less desirable methods so you don’t someday find yourself doing something that you think is good but is actually hurting your chances of success.

One putting method you rarely hear about is “body putting.” As shown in Figure 3.5.1 the arms wrists and hands arc locked onto the body so the putter is swung by the rotation of the body around the spine. One reason it’s rarely mentioned is that you’ve never seen a Tour professional putt this way for any length of time and with any measure of success. I have tried it and yes putts can be made with this stroke. But that doesn’t mean you should do it.

Body putting does help eliminate the wrist collapse and forearm rotation problems so many golfers suffer from. However the body turn is so powerful it doesn’t allow golfers to develop the delicate touch for dealing with fast greens. Body putting also relies on the very thing that most golfers want to avoid on the green and that is unwanted body motion. Watch golfers particularly amateurs and you’ll see them unknowingly make all manner of body movements when they putt particularly swaying back and forth which puts them out of sync with their stroke. Because it destroys timing body motion is one of the leading causes of inconsistency and havoc in traditional putting.

The Power Stroke

A number of very fine players putt with what I call the “power stroke ” by which I mean a stroke in which the power comes from the muscles of the hands wrists or forearms. Some power-strokers use their wrist muscles hinging their wrists the way Arnold Palmer did very successfully in the early part of his career (Figure 3.5.2). Another power-stroker Tiger Woods doesn’t break his wrists but supplies power with his arm muscles (Figure 3.5.3).

Both Arnold and Tiger like to force things to happen to control their putts and make them do what they want them to do. And we all know that they both have so much talent they perform this way very well. I think however they would both putt better if they used less hit and more stroke in their putting motions. (What do I mean? Have you ever seen Arnold or Tiger blow a short putt four feet past the hole? That’s what I mean.)
