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?

In a sheltered wooded valley in central Cornwall lies countryside of a softer hue, concealing one of the finest golf courses in the South West. Over the years Lanhydrock has been beautifully moulded into the landscape and this has produced a course that offers an enjoyable challenge to golfers of all abilities.

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

Extract from the book:

278 Improve Your Stroke Mechanics parallel to your Aimline your stroke was in perfect rhythm you achieved stability without any hit or muscle power (because your stroke moved in sync with your natural rhythm) and you just saw and felt a reference 12-inch backswing putting stroke worth memorizing.

Do It Again Sam

Now repeat this entire sequence 19 more times the last 5 with your eyes shut. That’s the entire stability drill for the 12-inch backswing stroke and it should take less than five minutes. 1)o it again a few days later except this time with the foam taped six inches behind the ball spot and seven inches ahead; this is the six-inch backswing stability drill which rolls the ball about the perfect speed for a two-foot putt on most greens. The third reference stroke drill is for a 25-footer and for this the foam should he placed at 18 inches behind the ball spot and 21 inches ahead.

These three stable reference strokes are typical of strokes you need on the course in every round. But by practicing with no ball no pressure on results and no distractions you can focus solely on rhythm and feel. Doing these drills over a period of time (say a few nights a week for six months) will embed the feel for stable (properly accelerating) strokes into your subconscious and you’ll begin using and feeling them on the course out of habit (an occasional repeat of these drills over the years will help keep bad habits away). Of course you will use the 12-inch backswing stroke on longer and shorter putts because green speeds vary and the putts may be running up- or downhill. But the rhythm and stability will be there. You’ll feel them sense them and be able to call up these strokes from your subconscious simply by closing your eyes and searching for that feel as you are creating your preview stroke.

Everybody can benefit from the stability drills but they are especially helpful to golfers who make good mechanical strokes yet decelerate into impact. If you’re not stable (accelerating) through impact every error you make is maximized in your results. Simply by making a tiny change from your present putting rhythm you may be able to change your unstable stroke to a stable one. And if you do your results will improve significantly even dramatically in pressure situations.

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

Extract from the book:

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 63 the green surface is low letting balls roll farther and longer. A rapidly slowing and short roll off a Stimpmeter means the friction of the green surface is high and the green speed is very slow.

Green speed always affects a putt’s speed and direction of roll (except on dead flat greens where direction is straight no matter what the speed). And the combination of green speed the amount of energy transferred to a putt and the influence of contours and slopes on the greens determines the results of your putts based on how much the putt truly breaks your putt’s initial Aimline and starting speed.

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics

Seven of the 15 building blocks of putting deal with stroke mechanics. By the end of this chapter you should understand them and how they affect your ability to putt. These seven fundamentals (Figure 4.4.1) have the most to do with determining the quality of a putting stroke and its results. They are not the only mechanical factors but they are the primary ones and the ones we are most concerned with in our schools. They are your aim power source putter path putterface angle impact point flow lines and putter fitting. If you understand and improve these seven fundamentals you will roll better putts. If you also can understand how to read greens better and learn to have better putting feel and touch then there is no question but that you will also make more putts.

It is a fact proven by testing that the better you aim the better you putt. That’s why I say aim is the first fundamental of putting stroke mechanics. Most golfers aim very poorly which is significant because aim can have a direct impact on all the other fundamentals: If you aim poorly something else in your stroke must compensate to correct for the error.

Aim Is Learned

Aiming is easy. Everybody aims. It is aiming precisely where you want to aim that is more elusive. The fact that most golfers do a poor job of aiming is not surprising because there’s no feedback on a putting green to teach golfers how to aim properly. In the absence of feedback golfers use two inputs to guide their attempts to aim: First they use their previous putting results (what I call reaction aiming) and second they use the look of their putter relative to their Aimline (what I call position aiming). Further explanations are in order.

This is the final setup position. The back is still straight. All you need to do is bend at the waist until the club touches the ground. As you can see, the arms are still stretched out, and the hands are hanging straight down from the shoulders. They seem lower than waist-level, but the relationship between the arms and chest has not changed. Your legs remain in a fixed position, while you move the arms and chest together to the ball. This is the key to a good, simple setup.
