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:

Step 4. Make at least three but not more than six practice swings until you see and feel the perfect stroke that you imagine would roll an imaginary ball sitting four inches to the left of your real ball (Figure 11.2.4) along an imaginary ball track over an imaginary hole to a resting point 17 inches behind and four inches

Establish Your Practice Framework 225 to the left of the real hole. (Everything about this practice – the imaginary ball ball track and 17-inches-past point – should be four inches to the left of where you see the real ball track and hole so when you move four inches over to address your putt everything will be correct for the real putt while still exactly the same as the way you just practiced it.)

Always make your first practice swing looking at the imaginary point 17 inches past sensing and feeling the proper-length swing for the distance. Make the second swing while looking down at your imaginary ball again trying to feel the perfect-size stroke. Make at least one more practice stroke while looking down then look up after you finish the follow-through (holding it for a few seconds) and imagine your imaginary ball rolling to the perfect 17-inches-past point. If after this third stroke everything feels right and you believe a repeat of your third stroke will hole the real putt commit to it as your “preview” of the best stroke you can make.

Step 5. With your decision that your last practice stroke was the perfect stroke the one that will hole the real putt you have created your preview stroke the perfect stroke for making your putt. You have just seen and felt it in your mind’s eye.

However if you are not completely confident after a third practice stroke in Step 4 you are allowed one two or even three more practice strokes until you see and feel the perfect preview stroke. Once you feel it commit to it and move into the address position for your real putt. Moving in is Step 5.

You’re now ready to execute your putting ritual and stroke your putt. Your 5step routine should have prepared you to make the best stroke you know how to make. The better you have seen and felt that your preview stroke was perfect and the clearer the perfect stroke remains in your mind’s eye the more likely you are to make a good stroke when you actually putt (Figure 11.2.5).

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

Extract from the book:

Most golfers control their putting with the small muscles of their hands wrists and forearms. These are the muscles that control most of the things we do in life – hitting things twisting things moving things – so using our hands and forearms in golf is instinctive and therefore feels natural to us. But instinct and natu

68 The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics ralness don’ t necessarily mean correct. And in fact trying to find a way to putt that is both initially comfortable and natural usually leads to disaster.

Supplying the power which determines how fast and how far your putts will roll from the muscles of your wrists hands and fingers (Figure 4.5.1) is bad. Wrist motion (hinging) causes putterface angle variations and hand and wrist muscles lend to tighten up and not work well under even slight pressure. But powering your putts with these muscles also brings an added complication: It’s not had all the time.

You can practice putting this way for years and as long as you putt on the course exactly the way you do in practice – relaxed and calm – things will be reasonably okay. But wait until you get really excited. When your heart begins to beat faster because a putt really matters your body naturally produces adrenaline which makes all of your muscles stronger. Then all your practice goes out the window because the muscles that control your putting power are now stronger than they ever were on the putting green. Even if your stroke feels the way it did in practice the adrenaline-induced extra power will cause it to provide the wrong amount of energy to your putts and produce bad results on the course.

You Can’t Avoid Adrenaline Everybody gets to experience excitement and adrenaline in golf. It’s part of why we love the game and if you want to become a better player you must learn to deal with it. You must learn to play well when adrenaline is in your system. This is easy in the power game when you want to hit the ball as far you can with whatever club is in your hands. Adrenaline in your system helps you to do this. But putting is altogether different. You can’t take one less club on the green when you’re pumped up. And you certainly don ‘t want to putt the ball as far as you can.

Luckily there is a simple way to control adrenaline when putting. Learn to putt

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 69 in such a way that the adrenaline-affected muscles of your fingers hands and wrists don’t control how far or fast your putts roll. You’ll learn about that in section 13.5.

Position the golf ball in the manner previously described, then stand straight up. Your knees are not locked, but they are close to locked. Your back is perfectly straight. Your chest should be out. It won’t feel right to have your back straight and chest protruding. It will look and feel “exaggeratedâ€
