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?

Taking a golf holiday or short golf break is an increasingly popular choice of vacation for golfing enthusiasts who like to travel. The advent of cheap air flights together with the rise of golfing tour packages and travel companies specialising in golf breaks to quality worldwide destinations like France, Spain, Cyprus, Portugal and Thailand means that it’s never been easier to pack up your golf clubs and jet off to a golf course in the sun.

Dave Pelz’s Putting Bible – golf’s least understood skill.

Extract from the book:

No putts mis-hit on the downhill side of the putter sweetspot will ever go in. They will start downhill then break more than expected downhill and never have a chance of finding the hole.

If you mis-hit these putts on the downhill side of your putter sweetspot you deserve to miss the putts!

Face Your Special Problems 357

Don’t ever try to “cheat” this way – toward the heel or toe – on putts longer than 10 feet because mis-hitting reduces the energy too much for putts of that length and they’ll all finish short. Always hit longer putts as solidly as you can even if they have a substantial amount of break so they at least have a chance of getting to (and going in) the hole.

14.7 You Lost It

You ‘ve missed six putts in a row from inside five feet and four of them were fourfooters. You’re normally good at putts of that length. Plus you felt good over all of them and thought you stroked them well.

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

Extract from the book:

Again there is one exception to this and again as mentioned earlier with respect to the sweetspot’s two dimensions it is when the greens are very bumpy and soft. In these conditions I sometimes recommend that players use a more lofted putter move the ball slightly forward in their stance (increasing the effective loft at impact by catching the putt more on the upstroke) or both. You can see this every year at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am which is held in late winter. The greens are always soft and bumpy due to rain and the large field of amateurs and pros filling three courses every day. By the time our team gets to Pebble for the third round of the tournament the footprints are really bad.

Despite these conditions using slightly more loft might help explain why my man Jack Lemmon (the “human hinge”) always putts so well in that tournament (Figure 4.10.3). (Peter Jacobsen eat your heart out!)

The angle between your back and your hips should be great enough to provide room for your arms to swing with your hands vertically below your shoulders but small enough to let you comfortably practice putting at least 10 or 15 minutes at a time (Figure 4.10.4 middle photograph). Your knees should be slightly flexed enough to give you stability on windy days without making you feel crouched or uncomfortable.

The most comfortable and solid putting posture sets your center of mass (the center of your weight) over a spot between the balls of your feet as shown in Figure 4.10.5. Leaning too far forward so your weight gets out over your toes can cause severe inconsistencies in the impact point of your putts. Leaning too far back away from the ball places too much weight on your heels which leads to instability particularly in windy conditions again hindering solid and repeatable impact.

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 97

Eye Position

Once your posture is correct as described above position your eyes somewhere directly over the Aimline of your putt as discussed in section 4.4. Accomplish this by moving closer to or farther away from the ball – not by changing your back angle or leaning over or hack. Remember the Aimline extends behind the hall so it’s okay to set your eyes slightly behind the ball Jack Nicklaus – style (Figure 4.10.6).

After we get through the remaining sections, you will understand that this will change your swing plane a bit. Your swing plane will become more horizontal, the straighter you stand up. Please realize that nothing else should change. You will swing each of your clubs in exactly the same fashion (found below). This repositioning at setup will have a huge effect on the outcome of your shot, so please take some time to see where you are the most comfortable.
