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:

Fudge on the High Side

You’re standing over a putt sure that it’s going to break but unsure whether to aim it 6 or 10 inches above the hole. Whenever you have doubts about the true break fudge toward the higher break. If you are going to make an error judging break it’s always better to play slightly too much than too little.

The reasons are simple: (1) A putt is more likely to catch the high edge and lip-down and-in than it is to catch the low edge and lip-up-and-in (Figure 7.9.6). (2) Balls that hit spike marks or footprints bounce downhill more often than uphill (gravity causes this). So bad-bounce putts go in more often if they start a little high. (3) When your subconscious thinks you are aiming too low it tends to hit your breaking putts hard. When this happens on a downhiller look out for the three-putt. (4) While the chance of the ball wandering into the hole from the high side might not be near 100 percent the chances from the low side are near zero.

Downhillers Break More

Another putting fact you should be aware of is that given the same sidehill angle on a constant-slope green downhill putts break more than uphill putts. To help you see this imagine a perfectly flat green with a constant-slope with a hole at its center (Figure 7.9.7) and a clock overlay.

Putting straight uphill from the bottom of the clock is defined as putting from 6 o’clock. Putting straight downhill along the pure downhill or “fall line” of the green (the direction water will flow when running off the green in that area Figure 7.9.8) is putting from 12 o’clock.

One Negative

I’m not trying to sell you an in-line putting stroke. If this pils stroke seems too si mple and you want to make putting more difficult that’s okay by me. I’m just trying to inform you that a pure-in-line stroke is the easiest and best way to putt. But it’s not a panacea and there is one potential drawback to putting with this stroke (it’s the same drawback as for the screen-door stroke too).

To see this drawback look at how Perfy misses a simple three-foot putt with

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 85 his perfect in-line-square stroke (Figure 4.7.9). The problem is obvious: If you don’t align your shoulders parallel to the desired starting line for the putt even the perfect stroke path and a square putter blade won’t start the ball rolling on the right line.

So if you are going to take my advice and develop an in-line-square stroke you must be absolutely sure that as you learn this stroke you also learn to address the ball with your shoulders square (parallel-left) to your putting line. And as you will learn in Chapter 11 setting up parallel-left has other benefits as well.

4.8 The Importance of Putterface Angle

While putter path has relatively minor influence on the starting line direction of your putts (only about 17 percent) the putterface angle at the moment of impact (Figure 4.8.1) has a tremendous effect the remaining 83 percent (assuming contact is made on the sweetspot). This means face angle is more than four times as important as putter path. You may find this imbalance in importance surprising (most golfers do) but it’s true.

The “Simple Golf” Swing: “Golf for the Rest of Us”

Notice that the right elbow becomes locked now as the right arm continues to swing. As you can see the right wrist has started to roll on top of the left wrist. The left elbow is now closer to the body, and is able to bend. The left elbow cannot be completely stopped at the imaginary line, but just a hesitation is enough to let your hands swing through the ball. Notice that the triangle is still present.
