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:

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.

9.8 Balance Matters in a Putted Ball

Have you ever chipped or putted a ball that had a lump of mud that didn’t come off when you hit it? (Figure 9.8.1) If so you know the ball can do some pretty funny things as it rolls to the hole even if you hit the shot properly. Funny but understandable things because golfers accept that the mud would make the ball unbalanced and cause it to roll off-line.

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

Extract from the book:

The True Roller is the easiest way to putt because it is as simple as starting the ball on the right line (in the right direction) and at the right speed. But that doesn’t mean it is easy. I know because I use it all the time in my research to determine the right speed and the right line and it can take me many tries to find the perfect release point and direction. But once I’ve got them I can roll the same putt exactly the same way over and over and over again. And ultimately that’s what you want your putting stroke to do. So the True Roller is as close to the ideal as I’ve found.

Shooting Pool

Not quite as easy as the ‘true Roller but fairly close is rolling the ball as if you are shooting pool. In Figure 3.2.2 I ‘m demonstrating this technique on a practice putting green. l’ve actually putted like this a number of times on a number of dif ferent greens and grass types because it proved to me just how important speed is to good putting. When “pool putting ” starting the ball on the chosen line is sim ple but it doesn’t help you choose the line and giving the ball the proper speed is just as difficult as it is when standing up and using your putter. Again this is not a method I think the USGA should allow. I’m merely explaining that it’s not nearly as easy as you might expect it to be. (If you don ‘t believe me get a pool cue and try using it on some breaking putts on your practice green.) Just as with the True

Roller you have to find the right speed if you hope to make anything.

Both of these methods are easier than other types of putting because they remove or at least reduce the difficulty of starting the ball on the desired line. But the pool method for sure (and to a certain extent the True Roller) is just as difficult as most other methods in transferring the correct speed to the ball.

This is a point worth repeating because most golfers don’t think enough about the speed of their putts. Rather they focus on line. If you are a “line” putter try putting with a pool cue or a True Roller and I promise you’ll learn to appreciate the importance of speed in making putts.

The picture at left shows the correct setup position from above. You can see the correct shoulder turn by looking at this picture in conjunction with the picture directly below. Notice that there is no horizontal movement. There should also be no vertical movement. Everything rotates around the spine. Focus on rotating the right side of your body around your spine. The left side will move into place automatically.
