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:

Face Your Special Problems 351 putts which need to be given more energy the distance always appears shorter than it really is while on downhill putts which should be rolled more carefully and with less energy the distance appears longer.

I’ve already recommended that you can improve your touch by stepping off the distance of your putts. It’s even more important to do this when putting on sloped surfaces or where there are significant uphill or downhill areas between your ball and the hole. Just be sure – and this is important – that you walk in both directions on a sloping green and average your number of steps because you ‘ ll take different-length steps when walking uphill versus downhill.

Even with all these little “problems ” I’m not saying you need to think about any numbers. Just walk past the hole to your putt count your steps calculate a putt distance (which goes into your brain) then forget about it. It’s better to know how long your putts are than to guess their length but don ‘t let your concentration get diverted from your putting. Give your subconscious brain the facts then let it deal with them while you focus on reading the true break and creating good touch feel and a perfect preview stroke.

Avoid the Common Mistake

You also can help your putting by becoming aware of the most likely mistakes golfers make and avoiding them when you encounter various situations. For example when putting uphill the most common error is leaving it short. By being aware of this you can make sure your preview stroke will get your putt to the hole. Also realizing that you’re unlikely to roll a putt significantly past the hole on uphill putts can be comforting.

You already know how much more sensitive downhill putts are than uphill putts regarding distance control (see section 2.6). Also realizing that most downhill errors come from rolling too far past the hole will let you focus your preview stroke on floating the ball in softly from above the cup.

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

Extract from the book:

Up to this point I have been going from the easiest to more difficult ways to putt. Now I have to reverse that. In discussing the following ways to putt all of which conform to the Rules I will begin with the most difficult and work down to what I perceive to be the easiest way to putt.

The USGA would be happiest if every golfer would putt like Bobby Jones (Figure 3.4.1) used to putt and would use a putter similar to Jones’s old “Calamity Jane.” Jones putted standing perpendicular to the intended putting line and made what appeared to be a miniature golf swing. While this sounds like it might make putting easy being like all the other swings in golf in reality it makes putting quite a bit more difficult.

If the putting stroke is a miniature chip shot which is a miniature 5-iron swing which is a miniature driver swing it makes down-the-line vision difficult involves a slight rotation of the body and encourages rotation of the forearms. This also encourages rotation of the putterface provides far more power than is needed and brings to bear critical timing requirements all of which make putting so difficult and traumatic to so many golfers.

Methods of Putting 41

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.

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.
