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:

And there is. Rather than focusing on line or speed I’ve found that the best way is to imagine neither the Aimline nor the speed but the entire ball track you expect your putt to roll on. Because you can’t correctly imagine a ball track without your mind including both line and speed. That’s what the ball track is – the path of your rolling ball that results from the combination of line and speed that you give it (in a real putt or your imagination).

So just as in Chapter 7 where I encouraged you to look for ball tracks in your green-reading efforts ball tracks again are the answer this time to seeing speed. Because I assure you if you can imagine the ball track you want starting on the Aimline you have chosen your subconscious will include the speed.

8.3 Green Speed Affects Ball Tracks

The speed of the putting surface is something else to consider when seeing a ball track. Green speeds are measured every day around the world with the “Stimpmeter” (see section 4.3 for details). Most greens in the United States roll between 7.0 and 11.0 on the Stimpmeter meaning that balls released down this ramp (Figure 8.3.1) roll on average between 7 and 11 feet on the flat portions of these greens. This measurement is a simple way to approximate the frictional force the green ‘s surface exerts on rolling balls which is what primarily slows them and brings them to a stop.

The faster the green speed (i.e. the higher the Stimp reading) then the less energy or initial speed you have to give to your putts to get them to roll the perfect distance. So putts on a fast green actually will be rolling more slowly giving gravity more time to influence the ball and pull it downhill so it will break more. That’s why it’s important to know the green speed when reading the slope and trying to determine how much a putt will break. Of course the opposite is also true that a slower green speed means more friction so you have to roll the ball faster which decreases how much it will break.

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.

Problems on the Greens 33

There are many different ways for golfers to putt. Having said that it does not mean that I’m advocating all or any of these methods. But it’s important that you are aware of the choices a golfer has and even a few he doesn’t unless he doesn’t care about the Rules of Golf (which I think you must if you’re going to he serious about this game).

Here is a view from the front. The goal of this photo is to show that there is no lateral movement. Simply rotating your right shoulder around your spine.*Please note that you should NOT be cocking your wrists at the end of your backswing. While this may add a bit of power, it will totally throw off your timing. The results of a wrist cock are slices, hooks, fat shots, etc.
