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:

After identifying a Dot-Spot mark the Face-line on your ball centered on the Dot-Spot which will make it exactly perpendicular to the Balance-line. This can get a little confusing so we use a hall mask (as shown in Figure 11.7.7) in the following procedure for marking balls:

Aiming Conclusion

Since the margin of error in putting is so small precise alignment is crucial which means it’s something you need to practice over and over. The best way to learn to aim is with a LazrAimer periodically practicing with it to train your brain what perfect alignment looks like. The Putting Track can teach you to aim if you use it long enough (and always set it up properly). If you don’t want to invest the money and time on either of these devices at least mark your balls with their Balance-lines and Face-lines and learn to use those lines to help you aim.

We’ve seen many students benefit from these improvements and odds are that you too will see your putting improve as you learn to aim better. But you definitely want to test these aiming aids on the practice green before you commit to them on the golf course. It takes a little more time to line up your Balance-line with your Aimline especially the first few times you give it a try so practice doing it on the practice putting green to keep your play timely on the course.

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

Extract from the book:

You should never change from your proper eye position stance or posture to accommodate a poorly fit putter.

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 109

My belief is that you need to be fit for a putter before you waste too much time trying to work around a bad one. You may or may not end up changing it later but at least you can make some good improvements until you decide. The details of fitting a putter to your body and stroke will be discussed in section 11.6.

4.12 The Mind’s Role in Putting Stroke Mechanics

There is one last ingredient I ‘ve yet to touch on in this long list of putting factors. And that is the mind. How important is the mind when putting? You can’t move the golf ball even 1/32 of an inch with just your mind. Your mind doesn’t hold the putter. However that doesn’t mean the mind has no power because the mind can stop your body from accomplishing something in a heartbeat. Your mind must believe you can make a putt at least that the possibility exists . . . or you won’t. You must realize that of course you “can” make the putt. It really is possible. Always remember what one of my favorite putters in the whole world (Dave Stockton) said to me: “I never met a putt I couldn’t make.”

Your mind controls your body your body controls your putter and the way you swing your putter controls the starting conditions of your putt. And controlling a putt’s starting conditions is all any golfer can do. None of us can control the conditions on the green the wind footprints or Lady Luck. All we can do is get our mind to let us put the best possible stroke on the ball; then we have to live with whatever happens.

So forget using your conscious mind to help your putting. What you want working for you is your subconscious mind that part that handles images and memories. Of course the first time you try something you need your conscious mind to think about it. But after you’ve made good strokes and holed putts many times it can become a habit totally and completely controlled without any conscious thought. That’s when putting becomes controlled by the subconscious mind.
