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:

Of course such a putter would be illegal and the golf business full-time one of the no one wants golfers to make every putt regardless major golf-equipment manufacturers became tremendously successful of their skill. But when you realize that golfers selling heel-toe-weighted putters practice their stroke path while having no idea by promoting their specially heat-how to improve face angle through impact (and treated harder faces. In the last few back in section 4.8 I showed how face angle has a years that same manufacturer has much stronger effect than path on putting sucswitched to making and promoting cess) the thought of a softer high-friction puttingputters with soft-material face in- face that conforms to the Rules of Golf creates serts again with great success. some interest.

More soft-face theory can be found in the many ads for putters that have a soft insert. These ads promote their putters’ “soft er feel ” “better roll ” and “greater control.” In looking at test data to see whether or not a softer face really does make a difference in how accurately the ball follows the putter’s path I saw no measurable difference in putt direction off faces of plas tic wood steel and copper (within the accuracy tolerances of the test setup). But this is only one test and we will refine our procedures and improve the accuracy. I will report the results when they become available but until then I’m very com fortable saying that while soft-faced putters may feel and sound better those on the market today won’t make large differences in the direction your putts roll. If these faces do have a significant benefit other than a more solid sound (which is nice) it’s probably in lessening the dimple effect as discussed in section 9.10.

The bottom line: Run your own tests of different putting materials to see if one works better for you on short putts while preserving your feel for distance on long putts. No one can do this for you so take a little time visit your golf professional or local golf shop and test a bunch of different putters for yourself.

This is an often overlooked element of putter-fitting because many golfers don’t think it’s about the putter at all. Also since the golf ball doesn’t care how comfort able you are you could argue that your comfort is unimportant. However all other things being equal the more comfortable you are while practicing putting the longer you’ll practice and the better your putting will become (assuming you’re practicing properly). Your putter should be fit so you can be physically comfortable enough to practice sufficiently to learn to love and trust it on the course.

Another kind of comfort is how much you like the way a putter looks. You

Establish Your Practice Framework 261 don’t have to be comfortable with a putter’s looks or be comfortable standing over it when you begin practicing with it. But it doesn’t lake a degree in physics to know that your comfort level will increase once you start holing more putts.

You need to understand the realities of putting so you’ll be more tolerant when unexplained things happen to you on the greens. You need to believe – no you need to know – that there is no net luck in putting no matter how your putts seem to be rolling bouncing or deflecting that day.

Once you understand the reality of the problems of the game and the often cruel statistical nature of its results you will be better prepared to proceed with your learning program which will lead to your improved putting. Always remain alert to the importance of immediate accurate reliable feedback and what it can do for your practice and on-course putting. So take heart and realize your better scores will come from more areas than simply improving your stroke mechanics. There’s much more to good putting than that physical stroke motion of yours.

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.
