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:

3Z4 Develop Your Artistic Senses (Feel Touch Green-Reading) you don’t properly practice lag putting enough and you don’t have good feel or touch for your long putts.

To get the feel for lagging long putts close try our “Lag-Putt Drill ” which establishes three reference-distance putts – 40 50 and 60 feet – that you practice again and again. Every time you do this drill putt from different angles and slopes but always from 40 50 and 60 feet to a hole. You’ll find that once you begin to build confidence from these three distances (this will likely take repeating the drill on 10 different occasions) other long distances will become easier too.

Start by walking off your three distances and marking them with tees. putt three balls from 40 feet followed by three from 60 and three from 50. Do this cycle twice more then end with three putts from 50 feet that stop within your huge six-foot imaginary hole around the real hole (which means all three remaining putts are shorter than three feet). You haven’t completed the drill until you get the last three in a row to finish in the six-foot circle.

As you continue to practice this drill those last three good lags will become easier and easier and you’ll come to be dissatisfied on the course with lag putts that leave you second putts longer than three or four feet.

Given proper feedback conditions competition is the best environment for learning. So compete against the best putters you can find at every opportunity when you practice your putting. All of the drills above can become games if the goal becomes winning. For example in Too High or the lag putt Drill the winning (closest to hole) putt (playing with any number of others) counts one point and the first golfer to win six points wins the game.

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).

The old adage “different strokes for different folks” is very meaningful because some putting strokes work better than others for certain players while no one stroke works perfectly for everyone. While no strokes even perfect ones make all their putts some really awful strokes do make some putts. And sometimes the differences between good and bad strokes are very difficult to measure or see. But believe me the differences are there.

The follow through is now complete. The forearms are completely crossed, showing that you have gotten your hands through the ball. It may take a few days to get used to this new “left elbow close-to-side, forearms crossed-at-finish” concept. It will come though. It’s one of the best things you can do for your golf swing. No more blocking to the right or uncontrollably slicing the ball!
