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:

I make these points so you understand what you must do to improve from reading this book. And while I don’t want to discourage you I do want you to appreciate that it’s far easier to improve your putting (or any part of your game) if you have a knowledgeable instructor by your side as you practice. Without a trained set of eyes watching you it’s up to you to learn what needs to change and what can be left alone (we usually find that 10 to 12 of the 15 building blocks of each student’s putting are in pretty good shape). Then once you know what to work on you have to work carefully and accurately with feedback. This usually is the most difficult part of learning to putt better – deciding what to leave alone what to improve and how to improve it.

You need realistic expectations for your improvement. It usually doesn’t happen overnight but takes at least three to six months. But once you’ve analyzed the problem learned how to improve and committed to it you can be a better putter for the

The Improvement Process 217 long term. Just be careful and do it right. Don’t get impatient and don’t demand instant gratification. Don’t be worried if you initially putt a little worse before you putt better; it doesn’t usually happen this way but if it does be prepared to stick with it. It’s just a sign that your subconscious compensations need some time to work themselves out after you improve (or remove) what they were compensating for.

And there’s always the easy way out: Come to a Dave Pelz Scoring Game School (Figure 10.3.1). You’ll still have to practice to improve but at least you’ll know you are practicing the right things in the right way.

1) learn WHAT you need to learn

Once you have a plan of where you ‘re going and can create the mind’s-eye images of how you’re going to look when you get there you ‘re on your way. Whether you do it by yourself with your local golf professional or in one of our one-day clinics or three-day schools what has to be done has to be done. Because if you don’t improve your putting skills your putting results won’t improve either.

You need to understand the realities of putting so you’ll be more tolerant when unexplained things happen to you on the greens. You need to believe – no you need to know – that there is no net luck in putting no matter how your putts seem to be rolling bouncing or deflecting that day.

Once you understand the reality of the problems of the game and the often cruel statistical nature of its results you will be better prepared to proceed with your learning program which will lead to your improved putting. Always remain alert to the importance of immediate accurate reliable feedback and what it can do for your practice and on-course putting. So take heart and realize your better scores will come from more areas than simply improving your stroke mechanics. There’s much more to good putting than that physical stroke motion of yours.

Problems on the Greens 33

There are many different ways for golfers to putt. Having said that it does not mean that I’m advocating all or any of these methods. But it’s important that you are aware of the choices a golfer has and even a few he doesn’t unless he doesn’t care about the Rules of Golf (which I think you must if you’re going to he serious about this game).

The old adage “different strokes for different folks” is very meaningful because some putting strokes work better than others for certain players while no one stroke works perfectly for everyone. While no strokes even perfect ones make all their putts some really awful strokes do make some putts. And sometimes the differences between good and bad strokes are very difficult to measure or see. But believe me the differences are there.

Before I discuss some of the many methods you could employ let me pass on to you the one thought the one axiom that governs all my theories on putting. It is this: Simpler is better. You’ll find research test results in many different disciplines that validate this conclusion. It is certainly true in almost all of sports. Why? Because regardless of your level of talent the less you give yourself to do (and still get the job done) the more consistently you can learn to do it. Whereas the more compensations that must he made in your putting stroke the more difficult it will be to repeat in such a way that it actually makes your putts. The more complex a putting stroke (that is the more compensations that must be made to make it effective) the more uncertain (or inconsistent) its results by any golfer regardless of skill level.

As you can see in the image to the left, the back remains straight while bending over to the ball. All of the bending is done at the hips. Bending at the waist and keeping a straight back will promote great ball flight and consistency. The relationship between the arms and chest has not changed.
