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:

Most real greens have a nearly constant slope near the hole so this clock can be superimposed in your mind almost perfectly over most holes on any golf course. Remember these break relationships (from Figure 7.9.9) the next time you arc trying to read a breaking putt. Don’t expect putts to break exactly these amounts (all breaks are relative to the slope severity and green speeds). But simply by seeing the relative break in these ball tracks you should understand putting and reading breaks better than you did before because it will help both your conscious and subconscious decisions on the greens later on.

In the future using this clock image if you perceive you are above the 9 o’clock or 3 o’clock positions on any green (relative to the downhill direction) be careful because you are looking at what we call the downhill slider the most dangerous putt of all. Most golfers under-read the break on a downhill slider and then subconsciously hit the ball too hard trying to keep it on-line. It should come as no surprise that the most frequent three-putting in golf follows downhill-slider first putts.

Green-Reading the 15th Building Block 167

The Subconscious Is Awesome The more I understand the way golfers under-read the break of their putts the more I am in awe of our subconscious minds. It is truly incredible the way the subconscious figures out how to compensate for our inadequate green-reading abilities to push and pull putts without letting us know what we are doing even letting us occasionally make a few putts almost in spite of ourselves.

Just imagine now that you know the relationship between true and visible break if you can somehow read greens well enough to get your subconscious mind working with you (rather than make it fight your green-reading and compensate for it) you might really be able to improve that 15th and final building block of your putting your green-reading. I’ll show you how to make it happen in Chapter 13. Until then let ‘s keep learning how to deal with it. So far you have seen that these indisputable facts about your putting will never change:

So let’s move on and learn more about the realities of the grain of grass plumb bobs and how your mind works in your putting.

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

Extract from the book:

I mentioned briefly that you can miss the sweetspot both horizontally and vertically. So a word about hitting putts high or low on the face. Most golfers habitually make contact at roughly the same height on their putterface. As long as this height is about four-tenths of an inch above the sole where most putters are designed to be hit this is good.

But some golfers try to hit up on their putts to produce overspin or topspin and in doing so usually contact the ball very low on the putterface near its bottom. This is bad because it causes hand and muscle control of the putter (subjecting you to the effects of adrenaline) and can even result in some putters rotating over the ball if hit hard enough (Figure 4.9.3). Such rotation can actually impart more backspin on a ball than the hitting-up motion removes. (1 prefer backweighted-low putter designs to eliminate this problem.) Hitting up on the ball also raises the effective putter loft which can launch a ball up off the green and produce a bouncing and therefore inconsistent putt.

Having said this there is one situation in which I recommend either hitting up on your putts or using a more-lofted-than-normal putter. When you find yourself putting on soft and severely bumpy greens you might want to try launching your short puns slightly upward to avoid the footprints that would send them squirting left or right. True this is not a great stroke but on truly bad surfaces it may be the least had of your options.

Spinning Puffs

Forget here and now the idea of imparting spin as a way to control your putts. Research has shown that the friction of the green removes all spin from rolling halls

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 93 within about the first 20 percent of their roll. Despite this golfers think that Ben Crenshaw became a good putter by learning to put overspin on his putts and that Bobby Locke put “hook spin” on his putts which made them dive into the hole. Neither of these descriptions is true but amateur golfers believe them because they sound reasonable and give them something new to try in their own putting. (They also give amateurs an excuse for not putting better. Trust me: Most amateurs don’t need any more excuses.)

Still many golfers and even some teaching professionals extol the benefits of “releasing” the putter through impact rotating the face from open to closed to impart hook spin or overspin. Again all reasonably well-stroked putts can be shown to be rolling without any spin whatsoever when they reach the hole. So trying to release the putter makes no sense unless it encourages you to follow through in your stroke and eliminates deceleration and instability. However even in this case releasing the putter will produce more face rotation and give you more inconsistency in directional control due to increased timing problems.

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

Extract from the book:

Golf Tuition Knole Park Golf Club

Start your backswing. Focus on keeping your back straight, and your chest out. To help you swing directly around your spine, try focusing on rotating your right shoulder back and around your spine. If you focus on the right shoulder, your left shoulder will be in the correct position automatically. Simple. Keep your left elbow locked.
