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 ritual can be simple but it cannot he mental. Your mind races when you’re excited. Your heart beats faster your brain tends to run faster and time seems to fly when you’re in the heat of competition. So you can’t simply count “one two three go” in your mind as your ritual. You must move your fingers hands arms

Establish Your Practice Framework 231 and/or body in a series of motions that you can see and feel. If these movements are out of rhythm you can abort the stroke by backing off walking away and starting all over again.

If you can’t execute your preputt ritual with good rhythm and timing you almost certainly won’t be ready to execute a good putting stroke either. I’ve changed my ritual since my last book on putting Putt Like the Pros to make it last less than five seconds. While every golfer’s ritual should be something he feels comfortable doing at a rhythm that fits his personality I’ll show you mine as an example.

My ritual is short and sweet done to a count of five at a cadence of 80 beats per minute. But rather than counting I say the following words to myself: “down look look back through” (moving from left to right in the photographs in Figure 11.4.1). Just before starting my ritual I lift my putter a quarter of an inch off the ground; this is my trigger which tells both my mind and body that I’m ready to go ready to start my ritual and strike my putt. It says that I ‘ve completed my routine committed to my preview stroke moved in from my preview stroke looked at the hole once to make sure I moved in properly and I’m ready to go (the trigger occurs after I’ve moved into my putting setup just before 1 start my five-count ritual).

In the first photograph you can see my putter up off the ground which is my trigger. In the next frame which occurs with the first count of my ritual I tap my putter “down.” Next I look” down my Aimline. Then I look” back down at the ball followed by starting the stroke (moving my putter “back” to the top of the backswing). The final step is “through ” my through-stroke which I hold at its finish until my putt stops rolling. Down look look back through. That’s pretty simple. You should be aware that these two “looks” are not the same kind of looks you make when you want to see how far the hole is. The ritual looks are glances meant to move

232 Establish Your Practice Framework my head in the cadence of my natural rhythm to establish the rhythm for my stroke before I make it. And you should leave room in your ritual to build in one or two personal idiosyncrasies; you’re likely to develop at least one. Most pros do. Nick Price for example sits his putter in front of his ball (luring his preshot ritual.

Defining How the Ball Rolls

Before getting into the mechanics of the putting stroke I’ll define some vocabulary which will help keep things simple and easy to understand throughout the book. In our Scoring Game Schools we routinely use words or phrases that you may not be familiar with. We do this because we’ve found that many golfers refer to the same things using different terms and sometimes use the same terms to describe different things.

Obviously this can lead to unnecessary confusion and disagreement. It helps to be more explicit in how you describe and define some of these concepts. For ex ample my staff and I never talk about “putting to there ” or putting “that way.”

Rather we talk about the “Aimline” you intend to start the ball rolling on the “ini tial line” you actually start the ball on and where the “ball track” goes after that.

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

Extract from the book:

The right elbow should remain locked to your right side throughout the backswing. As you can see, the left arm is still locked as well.This step is included for many reasons. First, it helps you swing around your spine and promotes a correct shoulder turn. It’s really hard to move your body horizontally, while keeping your right elbow locked to your side at the same time. Secondly, it prevents the “flying elbow.” The flying elbow produces everything from a slice to a wicked hook, depending on what you do with your hands in conjunction with it. So, keeping your elbow in contact with your side will help tremendously in assuring that you swing around your body, every single time. Third, it’s a power-producing move because it will put you in a position to easily flip your hands through the ball. Fourth, keeping your right elbow locked to your side will give you a great point of reference. It keeps your swing plane correct, and is a great indicator of when to stop the back swing. Finally, it helps you to “stay connected” throughout the swing. If you have your right elbow locked at your side, it will be hard to swing your arms without rotating your shoulders and visa versa.
