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:

In step 3 walk below the ball-hole line (never above where your putt might hit your fresh footprints) to a spot behind the ball and stand on the extension of the ball-hole line. Again imagine rolling a ball straight at the hole from the True Roller and let your mind’s eye reconfirm that such a putt would miss below the hole. If you still believe the ball will break in the same direction you should be comfortable about the direction of the break and it will have taken you no more

Develop Your Artistic Senses (Feel Touch Green-Reading) 341 than 25 to 30 seconds. Now you must determine how much this putt breaks (the true break).

In step 4 as you move your body slightly down the slope (staying the same distance from the hole) imagine a new ball track from each new eye position as you go. You must always move downhill from the ball-hole line so you can look at the possible starting lines (Aimlines) of your putt which will always be uphill (or at least less downhill). Once you see the most believable ball track try to visualize and measure the visible break along it.

In step 5 imagine you move a narrow rule (the length necessary to measure the visible break) out to beside the hole then multiply it by three. This will give you the true break point and the direction of your putt’s perfect Aimline. Move downhill until you are standing and looking exactly on that extended Aimline and look to see if you believe your putt will roll into the hole if it starts on that exact line. If you believe it then commit to that line and start your routine. If you don’t like that Aimline change positions until you find one you believe then commit to it and go. It ‘s your turn to putt and you should be ready to get ready (to do your routine) to hole it.

At the end of this green-reading process (which should take no longer than 45 to 60 seconds – some of which can be done before it’s your turn to putt) you are ready to initiate your preputt routine (section 11.2) create your preview stroke execute your ritual and hole your putt. If you practice the drills make some of the changes suggested in this book and begin missing more than 50 percent of your puns on the high side then good for you. Keep practicing this way for a few months. You’ve probably been missing 85 percent of your putts low for years so a few months of missing high won’t hurt that much especially if it will help you make more noncompensating pils strokes in the future. Stay with it and be willing to take one step backward so you can take several forward in the future.

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

Extract from the book:

Great Putters Are Square

Do great putters rotate their putterfaces or do they keep them square through impact?

Because I have advocated the pure-in-line-square (pils) stroke for many years I have often heard from both playing and teaching professionals “But Jack Nicklaus Loren Roberts George Archer Dave Stockton and Ben Crenshaw rotate (screen-door) their putters through impact. Just look at this photograph. See you can see the putterface rotating!”

Then they show me a photo like Figure 4.7.3. Now I want to show you something. Look at the photographs in Figure 4.7.4. On the left you see Perfy my putting robot making a pure-in-line-square stroke with his hands vertically under his shoulders. In the center photograph the perpendicular gridlines show that his putterface stays perfectly square all the way down the line and the right side of the figure shows an incoming view of the same stroke (with different lines to show how perfectly on-line his stroke stays). Okay? You agree Perfy makes a pils stroke from this hands-under-shoulders (vertical pendulum) set-up?

In Figure 4.7.5 I put the camera perfectly face-on to Perfy as he makes the same pils stroke but this time I moved in a little closer and removed the gridlines to emphasize the effect. Now doesn’t that putterface look like it’s rotating screen-dooring through impact? I promise you it is not! Perfy’s swing was no different; it’s only the appearance (an optical illusion) that has changed.

My point is great putters have their putterfaces square to their Aimlines through impact what you see in photographs on TV or in person notwithstanding. That’s one of the reasons they putt so well. If the camera is not on-line or if gridlines aren’t present to reference your vision you can’t believe what you see because of the optical illusions. Even standing face-on watching a player putt at a tournament your eyes (and those of playing and teaching pros) deceive you in the same way. You’ve got to get your eyes (or the camera) either on-line or vertically above a swing motion to see if it’s on-line and rotating or not (as in Figure 4.7.2 where you can accurately compare the rotation of screen-door vs. pits stroke motions).

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.

Now, I’ll take you into the follow-through. This will be simple. Basically just keep turning around your spine. If you have flipped your wrists correctly, you won’t have to bother too much with the follow through. However, there is a basic position that you should be in when you finish the swing. You should be facing the target, and your right and left forearms should be crossed. Your right forearm should be closest to you, and the club should be out towards left field.
