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:

362 Face Your Special Problems would consider prerequisites for greatness. While you don’t have to be intelligent to be a good putter I think you do have to be intelligent to be a good putter for a long period of time. All humans have good and bad performance periods and to get past the bad times you must be smart enough to know what and why you do things and how to fix things when they go wrong. You also need to know what not to fix (or change).

Johnny Miller was one of the best ball-strikers I ever saw but he drove himself from competitive golf because of the putting yips. Arnold Palmer struggled to be competitive for the last 15 years of his career-during which time he hit the ball tremendously well – but suffered with the yips on and off. These two players plus Hogan and many others have as much talent as a player could ever want. They are all smart and they all care about and practice their games. But they didn’t heat the yips. Not because the yips can ‘t he beaten but because they didn ‘t know how to beat them. The key to solving the yips as with many other problems is to first understand you have them and then learn how to fix them.

I see golfers cure their putting yips every year. Of course it takes time effort and patience but they can be conquered. As evidence I give you Beth Daniel who won nine tournaments worldwide (Figure 14.9.3) only one year after coming to me with a serious case of the yips (which had caused her to miss 10 cuts in a row and many two-footers). Beth conquered the yips as many golfers have – by persistent hard work to improve her stroke in a system that allowed her to putt in a consistent and rhythmic ritual.

Here are my recommendations for conquering the yips:

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

Extract from the book:

Putting is a game in which delicate feel and touch create exactly the right speed and break of your putts. When you’re trying to be precise body power causes nothing but trouble.

School students turn (top) slide (middle) and reverse (bottom) their bodies during their putting stroke motions.

The final power source is the best power source the gentle swinging of the arms (which also involves the shoulders). Think about a grandfather clock in which the pendulum swings back and forth with a gentle constant rhythmic motion. Now imagine your arms are connected at your shoulders at one end and at the putter at the other end forming a triangle as shown in Figure 4.5.3. Imagine letting this triangle become the pendulum of a grandfather clock (Figure 4.5.4) swinging back and forth with the same gentle constant motion. This is what I call a pendulum putting stroke and it’s the best stroke I know because it is the most easily repeatable and predictable (plus additional benefits as you will soon see).

A pendulum stroke works under pressure because adrenaline-filled muscles don’t get to determine how far the ball rolls. In this stroke putting speed and roll are determined solely by the length of the stroke motion. As a result if you practice controlling speed this way you can be sure that it will work on the course and under pressure the same way. And that’s what you want.

4.6 Putter Path Is a Small Factor

I’m fairly sure there are almost as many different putting paths as there are golfers. And it seems there are as many ways to stand over (address) a putt too. Even for the same golfer each day’s stroke path seems to he different from the last with some golfers changing their paths from straight to breaking putts and changing again from a right-to-left breaker to a left-to-right breaker. Common sense should tell you that changing this often can’t be a good idea; my putting mantra – “simpler is better” – guarantees that the more different putting strokes you employ the worse your problems on the green.

The wrists have completed their roll, and the left elbow is close the body.Swinging around the spine. The wrists have completed the roll and now the forearms are crossing. The follow through is almost complete. If you notice, the triangle is still in place, proving that you are connected throughout the entire swing.
