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:

13.4 Develop Your Green-Reading Ability

Golfers we have a problem. We don’t read greens well we don’t play enough break in our putts we compensate for this subconsciously in our setups and stroke manipulations and because of these misreads and compensations we miss more putts than we have to miss. We could make more putts if we could get rid of the whole mess start all over learn to read greens properly then use one pure non-compensating stroke for all of our putts.

I keep saying “we” because when I tested 1 500 golfers they all had this problem. And I had it too. The question is do you? There is a simple way to find out by measuring whether you tend to miss regularly above or below the hole.

Measure Then Admit

Look at the diagram in Figure 13.4.1 showing zone A which is above the hole and zone B which is below the hole. You know from earlier data that most golfers miss about 85 percent of their putts below the hole because they don ‘ t play enough break. prove if this does or does not apply to you by keeping track of your missed putts over your next five rounds. Mark your scorecard as shown in Figure 13.4.2 total the As and Bs at the end of each round then add all five rounds of data. If your misses are split evenly between zones A and B you are reading greens well. If however significantly more (60 percent or more) of your misses were in one zone or the other your green-reading needs to improve.

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

Extract from the book:

The alignment of your eyes hips knees and feet flow-lines is important to your putting only in as much as they affect your brain or the orientation of your shoulder and forearm flow-lines. The problem is they can and do affect them for some golfers.

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 101

I say affect your brain because your eyes process information and feed it to your brain at all times. If you perceive that you need to push your putt out to the right because your eye flow-line is aimed too far left then your brain will make your body do it. When you are trying to perceive distance your eye-line should he horizontal in the binocular position (the way we usually look at things with our head up) to enhance depth perception (left side of Figure 4.10.H). However when you are looking along your Aimline to perceive the flow motion of your putter and ball along it your eye-line should he parallel-left (Figure 4.10.11 right).

As for your hip knee and feet flow-lines there is no reason I know of to have them aligned in any direction other than the intended flow direction of your putts. Some golfers tell me they see the line better when they stand open to their putts but when I test how well they are seeing the line it is usually pretty poorly. Look at Figure 4.10.12 and decide for yourself: Which setup do you think will produce better and more consistent putter flow down the Aimline?

The Stance

I am a strong believer in taking a narrow stance when chipping or pitching onto the green because that encourages golfers to use their lower bodies to maintain the rhythm of their swings.

And those arc the same reasons I strongly discourage a narrow stance for putting. A narrow stance makes it too easy for the golfer to move and rotate the lower body. Furthermore a narrow stance isn’t stable enough to resist being pushed around in the wind.

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€
