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:

11.6 Fit Your Putter

A properly fit putter is important but it’s not the top priority in helping you putt better. It may not even be in the top 5 or 10 (it’s hard to tell without seeing and measuring your putting game in person). A well-fit putter is nice it feels good

242 Establish Your Practice Framework and it may make proper setup and aim a little easier. But putting success depends to a far greater extent on your ability to properly execute the right stroke at the right time. You need to know what to do and how to do it on the greens and no equipment can change that.

The best putters of our time – from George Archer and Dave Stockton through Ben Crenshaw Loren Roberts Greg Norman and Brad Faxon to Lee Janzen the late Payne Stewart and now David Duval and Brent Geiberger – could putt well with just about any puller. This is because each one has developed great putting skills and strokes that. they grooved and own. No matter what putter you hand them whether it fit them or not they could use their own stroke (and setup alignment posture and other skills) and succeed.

In Figure 11.6.1 you sec the way I use a putter that is too flat to fit me and my stroke. Rather than change my posture to fit the putter I’ve done the smart thing which is to adjust the putter to fit my stroke (in this case standing it up on its toe). Never do the opposite which is to adjust your posture stance and stroke to fit a putter someone gives you. I don’t care how much you like the way the putter looks or feels if you can only use it by changing something that will adversely affect your setup or stroke mechanics – or any of your putting-game skills – it isn’t worth it. (Of course if you really have to have it you can take it to a qualified pro or club-fitter and perhaps have it adjusted to fit you.)

Having said that putter-fitting isn’t all that important understand that a poor fit (especially to a beginner) can be a significant deterrent to a golfer’s ability to learn to putt and to some extent even keep him from making good putting strokes. I see this in some of our students occasionally even with lower-handicap players who are in love with a putter for the wrong reasons. Because when the structure of new equipment is wrong for a golfer and he changes his posture or stroke motion to compensate for it it’s wrong. Then everything he has worked on practiced and grooved up to that point might as well be thrown out the window.

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

50 Methods of Putting

The Pure Pendulum Stroke And that brings us to the simplest easiest most repeatable most reliable and therefore best way to putt – the pure no-hit pendulum stroke. By this I mean a putter swinging in rhythm with the arms and hands with no power input from the hands and wrists whatsoever. If the pendulum is pure and swings down the line with no face rotation it is as simple a motion as can be made under the Rules of Golf. And that’s why it is the method I recommend most often to my students. And I recommend it to you.

To see it in use watch George Archer on the Senior PGA Tour who has produced the purest and best pendulum stroke for the longest period of time of anyone I’ve ever seen (Figure 3.5.12). Over a 20-year period playing against Nicklaus Palmer Player Watson Crenshaw Ballesteros Faldo and Norman Archer holed a higher percentage of his putts than all the rest.

The list of others who make pure-pendulum strokes reads like a who’s who of great putters including Bob Charles Greg Norman Dave Stockton Andy North Loren Roberts and Phil Mickelson (Figure 3.5.13). Having now looked at these great putters and seeing how simple their strokes are doesn’t it make you want to start putting that way? If it does you are reading the right book because my Putting Bible is mostly about why what and how to do it!

Back to what 1 said at the beginning of this chapter: Simpler is better. Because the mechanics of a pendulum motion get the job done and because they are the simplest then they must be the best. And they are the best because they are easier to learn and master than any of the more complex motions.

But be careful because there is not just one single pendulum motion. A pendulum stroke can be swung down the line around the body or across the line. It can be swung with the face rotating or with the face kept square. It can be pushed or pulled or allowed to swing in a consistent natural rhythm.

Keep focusing on bringing your right shoulder back and around your spine. Some of you may be able to turn about 90 degrees around your spine as shown in the picture on the left. Others may only be able to turn 45 degrees around your spine. Either is okay, but do not start moving other parts of the body to compensate for not being able to make a full shoulder turn. Stop when it gets uncomfortable. The important part is to STAY CONNECTED. When your left arm becomes parallel to the ground, stop your swing.
