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:

So acceleration is out and we are better putters for it. This is because only gentle acceleration is beneficial or required to produce a stable stroke and I have a better way to teach golfers to make such stable putting strokes.

6.2 Stability Is the Real Fundamental

For the moment forget about acceleration and concentrate on stability. First off what does stability mean in putting? Stability relates to the relative success a putter has in retaining its orientation and motion upon encountering outside forces and influences. A little more simply? If your putter is more stable when mis-hit it will stay more nearly on its path twist less feel a little more solid and direct your putts a little closer in the proper direction. Conversely an unstable putter will twist and wobble more when it is mis-hit and will be less effective in starting your putts in the direction or at the speed you want them to go.

Flow can you achieve stability in your stroke? A simple suggestion is to try pulling the putter through impact leading it with your left hand and arm (for right-handed golfers). Be warned however that if you do this with your hand and arm muscles you will become susceptible to adrenaline and this is not good. The better way is to imagine the stroke as a pure pendulum motion devoid of any hand or wrist action with a slightly longer follow-through than backswing. If you think of your forearm and shoulder triangle (Figure 6.2.1) swinging back and through like a pendulum you will instinctively perform a dead-hands stroke and be completely immune to the pressure effects of adrenaline. Once you can make a smoothly swinging pendulum stroke simply position it so your backswing is slightly shorter (10 to 20 percent) than your follow-through (Figure 6.2.2) and you have created an accelerating and stable putter without any hands or wrist muscle control. If you keep this stroke smooth and rhythmic its maximum velocity will occur in the middle between the two extremes (top of backswing and end of follow-through) and your putterhead will be stable through impact (details in section 12.2).

6.3 Perfy Has Rhythm

Near the end of the preceding paragraph I mentioned rhythm. It’s crucial that you understand the importance of rhythm to your putting game. Back in Chapter 4 I discussed how Perfy my putting robot can make a pure-in-line stroke and always keep the putterface square to the Aimline. In Chapter 3

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

Extract from the book:

But be careful because there is not just one single pendulum motion. A pendulum stroke can be swung down the line around the body or across the line. It can be swung with the face rotating or with the face kept square. It can be pushed or pulled or allowed to swing in a consistent natural rhythm.

The best of all these is the simplest of the simple the pure-in-line vertically swinging face-always-square natural-rhythm pendulum. It is the way to go if you want to putt your most consistently and most successfully.

I know it took a little time to get through all the possible strokes from the hardest to the easiest. But it is important that you understand the big picture of putting. It will help if you want to putt your best because at some point in your putting practice you’re going to doubt that what you’re doing is right that what you’re doing is working. And that’s when you’re going to fall back on the knowledge imparted here that to putt your best you must commit to the simplest stroke that will work for you and then believe in it. Come hell or high water – or missing 20 putts in a row – you must believe in the stroke you have committed to and stay with it until you groove it and own it. Only then can you ever hope to move toward achieving your personal optimum putting performances.

So let ‘s get into the putting methods techniques and systems most golfers use find out which is best for you and learn how to incorporate them mold them refine them and fit them into a system that will allow you to improve and then optimize your ability to putt.

THE FIFTEEN BUILDING BLOCKS OF PUTTING

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics

4.1 First Some Definitions In this and the next three chapters I will discuss the 15 building blocks of putting what they are how they work and what they mean to your ability to roll your puns into the hole. First I’ll list them all here (Figure 4.1.1) then define a few terms to enable us to keep our communications straight. Then I ‘ll jump in by detailing the seven blocks that deal with putting stroke mechanics.

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

Extract from the book:

Start your backswing. Focus on keeping your back straight, and your chest out. To help you swing directly around your spine, try focusing on rotating your right shoulder back and around your spine. If you focus on the right shoulder, your left shoulder will be in the correct position automatically. Simple. Keep your left elbow locked.
