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:

This drill is great for developing feel because it makes you putt the same two putts over and over after you know what is needed and your touch is no longer in question. Also as you near the last few putts the pressure mounts to not miss which is a good test of how well you focus and concentrate on your feel under pressure.

Put Gloves on and Close Your Eyes

One way golfers can improve their ability to visualize the feel in their mind’s eye is to putt wearing ski gloves on both hands (Figure 13.3.4). Thick padded gloves remove all kinesthetic messages of feel from the shaft and putterhead to the hands. So all they have to determine the size of their stroke (and preview stroke) is their mind’s-eye vision.

When you first try practice putting in ski gloves you’ll be surprised to find that most of your feel actually is in your mind and you’ll probably putt better than you expected. That’s when you realize the physical feel in your hands is “icing on

Develop Your Artistic Senses (Feel Touch Green-Reading) 317 minimizes the kinesthetic side of feel and helps refine one’s mind’s-eye feel for putts. the cake” in putting. It also may be when you finally understand why you don’t want to supply putting power with your hands and wrists: This kind of power overwhelms the small kinesthetic messages of feel that are there and removes your chance of benefiting from that “icing.”

A way to heighten your feel for the physical (kinesthetic) sensations of putting is to make practice strokes with your eyes closed. Begin your usual routine keeping your eyes open for your first practice stroke looking at the hole and seeing the distance. Then close both eyes ending all visual input to your brain. Make a practice stroke and feel what you expect the results of that putt would be. 1)o this several times until you’re comfortable with the feel of your stroke then open your eyes step in perform your ritual and stroke your putt. Creating a preview stroke with your eyes closed is the opposite of putting with gloves on as it forces you to feel through your hands where the sensations are weak. It will also convince you that putting with “dead-hands” (no power supplied by hands) allows you to achieve maximum sensitivity and feel from your hands in the putting stroke.

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

Extract from the book:

Proper putter fitting is not fundamentally a part of putting stroke mechanics but there’s no doubt that it can help you make better strokes. If the length or lie of a putter is wrong for you you’ll be forced to make compensations in order to putt at all well (Figure 4.11.1). And every characteristic of your putter that is poorly fit to your body size shape setup posture or alignment is one more card stacked against the odds of your executing a pure accurate smooth and noncompensating stroke.

The truth is that most golfers change their strokes to fit their putters when they should be changing their putters to fit their strokes (Figure 4.11.2). They don’t do much in the way of putter fitting in some cases because all they’ve been told about choosing a putter is to use one that they like the looks of. In other instances golfers use whatever putter has been given to them.

You should never change from your proper eye position stance or posture to accommodate a poorly fit putter.

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 109

My belief is that you need to be fit for a putter before you waste too much time trying to work around a bad one. You may or may not end up changing it later but at least you can make some good improvements until you decide. The details of fitting a putter to your body and stroke will be discussed in section 11.6.

4.12 The Mind’s Role in Putting Stroke Mechanics

There is one last ingredient I ‘ve yet to touch on in this long list of putting factors. And that is the mind. How important is the mind when putting? You can’t move the golf ball even 1/32 of an inch with just your mind. Your mind doesn’t hold the putter. However that doesn’t mean the mind has no power because the mind can stop your body from accomplishing something in a heartbeat. Your mind must believe you can make a putt at least that the possibility exists . . . or you won’t. You must realize that of course you “can” make the putt. It really is possible. Always remember what one of my favorite putters in the whole world (Dave Stockton) said to me: “I never met a putt I couldn’t make.”

At the end of step two, you reached the top of your backswing. As soon, as you get there, start your downswing. As you start the downswing, make sure to remind yourself to keep your arms “connected” to your chest and shoulders. Stay connected all the way through the ball. Your hands and arms only swing as the shoulders rotate. If you start your downswing by rotating your chest, without starting to swing your arms, you will most definitely end up slicing the ball. If you swing your arms before rotating your chest, you will most likely hook the ball. Staying connected will always produce the straightest ball.
