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:

That’s what most golfers think about instead of thinking about speed. They think about controlling the line (what we now refer to as the ball track) of their putts. However this doesn’t mean their aim setup posture or the orientation of their flow-lines. It means that they think about “making” their ball roll on the proper ball track to the hole. While this may not sound bad it really is a way to ensure that your putting never improves. It goes back to what I said at the very beginning of this book: ‘Frying to “make” a ball do anything usually involves a mechanical response of the hands fingers and forearms none of which arc helpful in executing rhythmic repeatable putting strokes.

Speed Rules

Golfers simply don’t know how to think about speed. They assume their ball track (or line or direction whatever you call it) is independent of speed. Nothing could be further from the truth! In fact – and this is something you must never forget – everything about your ball tracks (their shape size and direction) is a function of the speed. You can start with the same Aimline but produce very different roll distances ball tracks and results simply by changing speeds.

Look at the three ball tracks in Figure 8.1.2. These are three different putts each started on the same optimum Aimline to roll into the center of the hole. However each putt was started at the wrong speed for that Aimline so the balls rolled through the break on the high side lipped out on the low side and missed significantly low. On the course these misses probably would have been blamed on misreading the break pulling it just a little and hitting the putt poorly (giving it a weak roll) respectively. The truth of the matter is that there was no misread no pull and no mis-hit. All three misses were simply the result of rolling the ball the wrong speed.

Blaming the wrong factor has two had results. First it encourages golfers to

Speed Is More Important Than Line 181 work on the wrong parts of their game usually playing with their stroke path grip follow-through or something else that’s easy to see. Second they never work on the real problem which is learning to control speed.

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

Extract from the book:

The grip that makes it easiest for most people to produce a pure-in-line stroke is the parallel-palms grip (Figure 4.10.15). By parallel I mean the palms and the backs of both hands are parallel to the putterface which means they are perpendicular to the intended putt-line. Most golfers’ arms hang naturally in this parallel position they find it equally natural to swing their arms hack and through perpendicular to their shoulder line (Figure 4.10.16) and this motion is both easy to repeat and promotes a consistent position through impact. However if it proves uncomfortable for you try putting your hands on your putter shaft in the same positions that they hang naturally (without manipulation) under your shoulders (Figure 4.10.17).

Many other grips are possible including the “open palm ” “left-hand-low ” “claw ” “fingertip ” and “equal-pressure” grips. How to best use these and other grips will be discussed in section 11.6 along with how you can develop the best grip for your putting stroke.

Lower-Body Motion and Looking

Almost all golfers unknowingly move their bodies during the putting stroke. Sometimes a lot usually just a little but almost always some which tells me it must be extremely difficult to eliminate (at least without hours and hours of practice). Try rotating your lower body around your spine in your putting address position and you will see it turns your upper body as well (especially your shoulders arms and putter) because your upper body is sitting on the lower (Figure 4.10.18). This also rotates your putterface angle adding an unknown uncontrollable and unwanted variable to the starting line of your putts.

Rotation isn’t the only lower-body motion to avoid. Some golfers sway back and forth as they putt (Figure 4.10.19). They probably don’t know they’re doing it but the ball doesn’t care what you do or don’t know. One forward inch of sway during a stroke will move your ball about one foot on the green. And that ‘s a foot you probably did not plan on.

A different kind of move is the “peek ” in which the golfer both turns and looks up in the middle of his stroke in an attempt to see the result. Probably the most famous peek was at the 1970 British Open at St. Andrews when Doug Sanders (Figure 4.10.20) missed a 2½-foot putt to drop into a tie with Jack Nicklaus who then beat him in the playoff.

Position the golf ball in the manner previously described, then stand straight up. Your knees are not locked, but they are close to locked. Your back is perfectly straight. Your chest should be out. It won’t feel right to have your back straight and chest protruding. It will look and feel “exaggeratedâ€
