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:

So what is the right way to fit putters to golfers? For the “perfect” stroke or the “as-is” stroke? It helps to know the golfer’s intentions. If he’s not going to come to a school take putting lessons or ever change his stroke then he should be fit the

244 Establish Your Practice Framework best way possible for the stroke he has. But personally I prefer the perfect-fit method. Because if there is any possibility that he will work to improve his putting skills especially his setup posture then it’s wise to fit him with a putter that will help him (or at least allow him) to make the best stroke he can. And sometimes having a perfect-fit putter might encourage him to work on improvement.

Putter-fitting is easy painless and can help make it easier for you to learn proper noncompensating strokes from your most natural and comfortable body positions. If you have your putting equipment fit properly first before you develop and groove your stroke mechanics you won’t have to relearn them later on to remove compensating moves caused by misfit equipment.

First Things First

Before you buy bend or cut any putter look at the shape of the putterhead to be sure you can accurately see where it is aimed. I also recommend stroking a few putts with any new putter so you know if you like its feel of solid impact. If you can’t aim a putter and you can’t feel when it makes solid contact it will require a lot more learning before you fall in love with it. And I say “learning” because you can learn to love a putter even if you hated its looks when you first picked it up. I can testify to this as I have experienced success with some awful-looking putters that “putted themselves pretty.”

So one more time before we get into the details you should understand the primary purposes of putter-fitting: (1) to allow you to set up properly as you learn stroke mechanics; (2) to not screw up your already established stroke mechanics (assuming they are good); and (3) to help you aim better.

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

Extract from the book:

4.3 Defining Speed

Putt Speed

The velocity with which a ball moves along the green can be referred to in several ways. Some golfers refer to this as the rolling speed or speed of the putt. Some golfers talk about the pace of a putt while others talk about how fast a putt is moving. It would be nice if we all could mean and understand the same thing when referring to speed.

Technically the speed of a putt can be described and measured in quantitative terms as the velocity of motion (in units of inches or feet per second) in a given direction and the decay or decrease of velocity (the velocity profile) as the ball rolls to a stop. However since most golfers don’t think in technical terms on or off the course the actual velocity of a putt at any instant is neither very meaningful nor useful. As a result golfers talk about the speed of their putts as being too fast too slow or just about right as they approach the hole.

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 61

But if you want to learn more about controlling your putting speed and making more putts you need to know more about speed than that. In fact you need to know how the rolling speed of your putts compares to their perfect or optimum speed around the hole. The speed of a putt depends on its length how fast it started where it is along its ball track how fast the green surface is and the slope (up down or sidehill) it is rolling on. For every putt there is an optimum speed that will optimize the percentage of putts that would both hit and stay in the hole. Therefore in this book as in my Scoring Game Schools we refer to a putt’s speed (while imagining its ball track) as how it relates to the optimum speed it should or could be rolling. For example as you can see in Figure 4.3.1 the left putt’s speed was too much as compared to the right putt’s speed which was virtually perfect. A detailed discussion of putting speed and optimum-speed ball tracks is in Chapter 7.

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.
