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:

9.7 Use Your Wind Stroke

Although you can’t expect to putt as well in the wind as you do on calm days you should always try to putt your best. There are compensations you can make to improve your wind putting. Widen your stance to create a more stable base. Grip down on your putter since with your feet farther apart your entire body is slightly closer to the ground. And extending your arms down the putter shaft (Figure 9.7.1) will give you more control over the putterhead.

When the wind is blowing across your line play for a little more or less break. How much? The best you can do is guess how much based on previous experience. But don’t overdo it: Don’t change your line if the wind is gusting. Instead play the normal amount of break and make the wind beat you because you don’t know if the wind will blow or not as the ball is rolling. (Wind usually blows much less than 50 percent of the time and usually not only in the direction that will make your putt miss.) If it blows and makes you miss that’s okay – that’s golf in the wind; but if it doesn’t blow and you played for it then you’ll be even more disappointed by having given a stroke away for something that might have been but wasn’t.

In really difficult wind conditions lag your long putts (from over 15 feet) while rolling the very short ones (from less than 3 feet) firmly. On long putts focus on leaving yourself the shortest possible next putt. Rely on your short game to save strokes by setting up putts that are short enough to make even in the wind. And putt quickly (execute your ritual just don’t waste time); this will minimize the chance of the wind changing between your last practice stroke and your real stroke.

Finally don’t let the wind beat you before you get started. It’s easy to overthink or get psyched out by possible wind effects when in fact most putts won’t be affected or if they are the effects will he small. So work on everything else about your putting – stroke mechanics aim and setup feel touch and green-readingbefore you start worrying about the wind. Become a great putter first; then you can worry about becoming a great wind putter.

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

Extract from the book:

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 77

The Simplest Pendulum

To examine the putting stroke of vertical pendulum A look at Figure 4.6.9 where the golfer’s hands hang vertically below his shoulders. On the left of this photo the attached putter hangs vertically below the hands which looks a bit strange. But stay with me. If the golfer now swings his arms straight hack along the line of this intended putt lets them relax and then swings them through – guided simply by the force of gravity – the putterface would swing perfectly along the line of this putt (Figure 4.6.9A’). This path is purely in-line along the Aimline just like pendulum A with no side forces or path curvature.

By starting with the putterface square to the line and using this pure-in-line stroke the ball would have to start rolling on that line. The pendulum swings this way because gravity is the only force acting on the stroke: There are no rotating forces to turn the putterface away from the target line and no side forces to push the putter off the straight Aimline path.

Now imagine a minor modification to this putter a lightweight but much longer face (Figure 4.6.9A`’). With this change the putter would still swing perfectly in-line beneath the shoulders and there still is nothing to cause rotation or circular motion in the stroke. In Figure 4.6.9A’ we’ve added a lightweight but rigid connection from the grip to the putterface near its toe. Assuming this connection is truly lightweight and doesn’t change the putter’s balance the swing path still would not change still would not rotate and would naturally continue to swing in-line along the straight line path beneath the shoulders.

Finally having seen how this putter swings with both shafts now look what happens when the vertical part of the shaft is removed in Figure 4.6.9A”. By removing the original vertical shaft (which hung under the hands) and the back of the putterface we have turned this into a normal-looking putter which still swings in a pure-in-line path as before. This face (again assuming the putter was balanced perfectly) will not rotate open or closed and will not swing or curve around the body. The natural swinging motion of this putter will be purely in-line along a line exactly parallel to his shoulder line. In other words this putter path will track right down the Aimline the intended line of the putt.

Golf Tuition Heswall Golf Club

I want you to understand the purpose of this technique before providing the details. It’s an easy technique that will produce fantastic results. You don’t need to have a long and complicated back swing to send the ball a long way down the fairway. Try taking, what you believe to be, a half swing. The ball will go almost as far. It may not leave the clubface with the same speed, but it also will not slice 40 yards to the right. Which shot would you rather have on a golf course? The drill I’m about to teach you will help you consistently keep the ball in the fairway, and give you better accuracy with all of your clubs.
