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:

What do you think causes most short-putt misses? Even though the distance is small many of these putts are missed because they are rolled at a speed that is either too slow or too fast.

Almost every golfer I know could improve simply by remembering this one rule: All putts are speed putts. The title of Chapter 8 is “Speed Is More Important Than Line”: As I explained there if your putts don’t roll at or near the right speed it doesn’t matter where you aim or what your stroke mechanics are like – you won’t make many.

What follows are my five favorite short-putt drills which will help you learn the proper feel to make these putts while rolling them at the right speed.

Develop Your Artistic Senses (Feel Touch Green-Reading) 321

Drill 1: Closed-Eyes Drill The purpose of this drill is to learn the feel of the three-foot-putt stroke which supplies optimum power to roll putts consistently through the lumpy donut without producing lip-outs. Drop three balls three feet from the hole and putt them in. Then move 90 degrees around the hole and do it

If again and again and again until you’ve circled the hole and made 12 in a row. you miss any putt start over until you hole all 12 consecutively.

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

Extract from the book:

82 The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics it’s important to realize that the putter shaft is not the pendulum of the stroke and the lie of the putter shaft does not affect the path of your stroke unless it makes you move your hands. Figure 4.7.6 shows the path of a vertical pendulum stroke with two different putters with different shaft angles: You can see that both swing in a pure-in-line-square motion all the way.

Everyone Can Swing On-Line and Square

Away from physics and hack to golf. As long as your putting triangle (Figure 4.7.7) remains intact so the elbow and wrist angles don’t change during the stroke and your forearms don’t rotate there is a position of your hands somewhere under your shoulders that will produce a pure-in-line-square stroke. This stroke is perfectly natural with no involvement of the muscles of your hands wrists or forearms. This lack of hand action is what we call a “dead-hands” stroke. (Note: The perfect vertical pendulum hand position can be influenced by the musculature of your shoulders and arms. Golfers with either very muscular or slender arms may find the spot isn’t precisely under their shoulders – but pretty close – due to the weight balance of the arms hands and putter.)

You’ve now had it proven that it is not only possible but also natural to swing your putter in a pure straight-line motion without any hand or forearm manipulations. And it’s equally possible and natural to swing your putter around or away from your body. Which stroke do you think lets you putt best? To me it’s obvious that the pure-in-line-square (pils) stroke is the simplest and best way to putt.

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 83

It’s Natural

Many other accuracy-oriented sports have embraced the pure-in-line stroke motion over a screen-door path including basketball bowling croquet and shooting pool (Figure 4.7.8). In all of these skills you could hit or release the ball or object from either a straight in-line or curved (around the body) path. It should come as no surprise that the in-line path is chosen in every case because the curved path demands perfect timing of the release to achieve the desired result.

At this point the right wrist is completely on top of the left wrist. Your hands are “through the ball”. You have continued to rotate around your spine, and you have tried to stop the left elbow on the imaginary line. This is the primary action for amateur golfer to increase power, while reducing slice.
