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?

I recommend this device because it’s fun and it gets the golfer to focus on his or her body motion and balance.

The balance board doesn’t teach a motionless lower body but it strengthens the muscles that influence balance. Stepping off the board after just five minutes’ work the balance muscles in your legs will be quivering and tired but your lower body will feel solid as you stand on the ground. If you use the balance board over

You can make your own balance board by attaching a wooden rod to a wooden platform about 12 inches deep and 18 inches long. But don’t center the rod: Most good putters keep 55 to 60 percent of their weight on their forward foot so attach the rod about 55 percent of the way to one end. Then stand on it with the small side toward your target as you stroke your putts (it takes more weight on the shorter side of the rod to keep in balance).

Eliminate Wrist Collapse

Changing wrist angles through impact (usually referred to as wrist breakdown or collapse) causes face rotation and putts to start left of the intended line (for right-handed golfers). This happens as power is being supplied to the ball by the wrist muscles and happens most severely if the right forearm is overpowering the left arm at the same time (which it often does). As l’ve already said numerous times powering putts with the wrist muscles will get you into trouble when adrenaline kicks in under pressure. Still many golfers continue to control roll distance this way.

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

Your impact point – where you tently square when you need it! make contact with the ball – is even more important still!

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.

Now just line everything up with that item and fire away. This method won’t cure all of your alignment problems, but it does give you a simple way to assure that you are on the right path. Many students have the habit of lining up way left or way right of the target. When the ball goes where they are “aiming”, they think they have a problem. If your ball consistently goes left or right of target, but flies straight, then your problem is your alignment. Try this simple method before every shot on the course and you’ll definitely drop a few strokes.
