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:

The program we recommend has worked for almost every golfer we’ve given it to without creating other problems in the process. It involves finding and marking your putter sweetspot documenting your improvement progress and maintaining a good stroke path while you improve your impact pattern.

If your putter has a mark on its top line don’t assume that is where you should address and strike your putts. Many manufacturers place those marks where they look good but don’t do the engineering and quality control necessary to balance the putter weight so the sweetspot is really there.

Finding your putter’s true sweetspot is one of the easiest chores in golf. The mistake to avoid is letting it hang vertically while you are doing it (Figure 12.3.1). You must hold the grip in your fingers so the shaft is angled to the ground the same way it is when you putt with it. This is key because it keeps the putter properly balanced to the way you actually use it. Then tap-tap-tap across the face with a hard metal object such as a car key. When tapping away from the sweetspot the putterhead will wobble and you’ll feel the vibrations in your fingers. There will be only one spot along the horizontal axis of the putterface that will produce zero wobble and the vibrations are minimized. That is your putter’s sweetspot.

Mark Your Putter

Once you’ve found the proper sweetspot mark it along the top line of your putter with a permanent-ink marker then tap-tap again to confirm your findings. When you are confident of the location mark it permanently by filing in a small groove (a punch mark also will do) which you can fill with paint. This will give you a permanent identification of where to address and hit your putts.

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

Extract from the book:

But the best legal way to putt is to take a perfectly fit putter and aim it accurately from a square setup with your feet knees hips shoulder and eye flow-lines aligned parallel-left of your Aimline; put your eyes vertically over the line and your hands vertically under your shoulders; then stroke your putt solidly on the sweetspot with a dead-hands pure-in-line stroke keeping your putterface square to the Aimline (Figure 4.13.1). In the next few chapters you ‘ll learn that if you

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 111 make this stroke in your own body rhythm following a perfect routine and ritual sequence with good touch and feel and play the correct amount of break then you’ve got it.

This pure-in-line-square putting stroke is natural works under pressure minimizes the critical nature of timing and hall position conforms 100 percent to the USGA Rules of Golf and is fundamentally simple to do. I highly recommend it!

CHAPTER 5 Five Nonphysical Building Blocks: Touch Feel Attitude Routine and Ritual

5.1 Controlling the Ball

The whole purpose of putting is to put the ball into the hole in as few strokes as possible. To accomplish this successfully you must consistently strike your puns with precision and accuracy starting them on the correct line and giving them the correct initial speed. If you can accomplish the initial conditions of proper line and speed the rest of your putting results are up to Mother Nature and the greens.

Starting your putts on your chosen initial line is primarily a function of your stroke mechanics specifically aiming your putter properly and striking it with a good path and square face angle. That’s the easy part. Imparting the proper initial speed is significantly more difficult because it involves stroke mechanics (making solid contact on the sweetspot) as well as putting “feel” and “touch” for distance plus your ability to read greens.

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

Hold the club steady with your right hand, and place left hand underneath the club as shown. The first joint of the left forefinger should be directly on the bottom of the handle, as well as the last joint of your left pinky. Once you have placed your palm on top of the club, do the same with your left thumb. Place it directly on top of the handle of the club. Next, interlock the left forefinger, and the right pinky. Nudge your right hand all the way towards the bottom of the grip. Now again, wrap the right palm all the way around the top of the grip. Don’t hold the grip of the club in your right palm. You should be able to cover up your left thumb with your right palm if you’ve done it correctly. You’ll see another V-shape being made where your right thumb and right forefinger meet. As a check, this V should be pointing directly at your right shoulder. If it doesn’t point at your right shoulder, rotate your hand on the grip so that it does. Your fingers should be giving the club most of the support it needs, NOT your palms.
