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:

11.1 Set Your Ground Rules for Practice

The focus of this chapter isn’t about practicing in the normal sense – that is what most golfers think about when they think “What should I practice?” Because (1) how you practice (2) how you prepare before each practice session and (3) within what framework (or foundation) you perform all of your practice are all more im portant to the long-term success of your putting game than just what you practice.

In the long term everyone needs to practice at least several (and sometimes many) of the 15 building blocks of putting to he able to optimize their skills. What determines the success or failure of that practice (whether or not it is effective and produces good results) however is how well you previously established your

“conditions of practice;” your “ground rules for practice ” and the “framework with in which” all of your practice was performed.

I refer to all of this as your framework for practice because it reminds me of the frame of a house in which I want you to perform your practice drills and games. It is the house of feedback the house of successful practice and the house of “what works later on the golf course under pressure.” I hope you see my point which is that no matter how long or how hard you practice to polish and refine the building blocks of your putting game if you don’t improve from that practice or if what you learn doesn’t fit into your putting game without messing up something else then you have wasted your practice time and done little more than prepare yourself for frustration.

Your framework includes everything that precedes and accompanies your practice sessions (correctly setting Aimlines using a metronome getting the right putter fit holding your finish etc.). You have to get all the ingredients right or else you won’t improve. This may be more than you used to think of as practice but I’m telling you it’s the only way to succeed.

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

Extract from the book:

Once your posture is correct as described above position your eyes somewhere directly over the Aimline of your putt as discussed in section 4.4. Accomplish this by moving closer to or farther away from the ball – not by changing your back angle or leaning over or hack. Remember the Aimline extends behind the hall so it’s okay to set your eyes slightly behind the ball Jack Nicklaus – style (Figure 4.10.6).

One word of realism here: Positioning your eyes over your Aimline won’t make you aim perfectly but it will allow you to aim consistently. If you learn how to aim perfectly (in Chapter 11) by eliminating compensations for your stroke faults then consistently perfect aim will become automatic.

Don ‘t Fight Your Flow-Lines

The easiest way to putt is with the “flow-lines” of your body aligned parallel-left of your Aimline (any line which is parallel to your Aimline and to the left of it is defined as “parallel-left of the Aimline). You’re probably not familiar with the term “flow-lines ” so look at Figure 4.10.7. The lines of flow through my shoulders forearms hips knees and feet are all parallel and to the left of my Aimline which is shown by the shaded white line on the green.

As I mentioned earlier (section 4.7) your putter will tend to swing naturally down the Aimline through impact if your shoulders are aligned parallel to that direction unless you do something to prevent this move with the muscles of your hands and wrists. So it’s very important to start your setup with the flow-line of your shoulders parallel to your Aimline.

To emphasize the power of this concept my “bad-flow-line” setup is shown in Figure 4.10.8. Look at my shoulder flow-line. From this position do you expect my putter to naturally swing (flow) down the Aimline? No way! It doesn’t do it when Perfy sets up and swings this way and it won’t swing down my Aimline either unless 1 compensate and use my muscles to make it do so.

The “Simple Golf” Swing: “Golf for the Rest of Us”

Here is a picture at full speed. The wrists have completed their roll through the ball. The left elbow is close to the body, and about ready to break, allowing for follow through.Now, I’ll take you into the follow-through. This will be simple. Basically just keep turning around your spine. If you have flipped your wrists correctly, you won’t have to bother too much with the follow through. However, there is a basic position that you should be in when you finish the swing. You should be facing the target, and your right and left forearms should be crossed. Your right forearm should be closest to you, and the club should be out towards left field.
