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.

298 Improve Your Stroke Mechanics a period of time (3 times a week for 12 weeks) your lower-body stability on the putting green will be greatly enhanced.

You can make your own balance board by attaching a wooden rod to a wooden platform about 12 inches deep and 18 inches long. But don’t center the rod: Most good putters keep 55 to 60 percent of their weight on their forward foot so attach the rod about 55 percent of the way to one end. Then stand on it with the small side toward your target as you stroke your putts (it takes more weight on the shorter side of the rod to keep in balance).

Eliminate Wrist Collapse

Changing wrist angles through impact (usually referred to as wrist breakdown or collapse) causes face rotation and putts to start left of the intended line (for right-handed golfers). This happens as power is being supplied to the ball by the wrist muscles and happens most severely if the right forearm is overpowering the left arm at the same time (which it often does). As l’ve already said numerous times powering putts with the wrist muscles will get you into trouble when adrenaline kicks in under pressure. Still many golfers continue to control roll distance this way.

It is possible to make a slight hinge of the wrists – as demonstrated by one of the best putters on the PGA Tour D. A. Weibring in Figure 12.5.7 – without affecting either the power (no adrenaline) or roll direction (as long as the hinge and the putterface stay down-the-line). But anything more than that becomes a

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

Extract from the book:

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.

Now how do you do this? By far the most important thing in your mind prior to the putting stroke should be an image in your mind’s eye of the stroke you want to make. This should he a clear picture – based on your observations reading of the green and knowledge of the conditions – first of what the putt is going to do and then how you are going to stroke it so it does exactly that. The subconscious sees this stroke image and uses it to tell the body what to do. Obviously you want this image to be of a good stroke and to be clear strong and proper so it gets the right idea to the body about executing a good putting stroke.

The importance of this image is something we deal with in depth in our schools. We go to great lengths to get golfers to see and feel in their mind’s eye what their perfect strokes are going to be like before they try to make them. Because once you see and know exactly what you are trying to do and have a clear picture of it in your mind’s eye it is so much easier to do it.

The basic idea is to keep your conscious mind busy seeing your perfect stroke during your practice swings as a way to build your confidence and form a clear picture in your mind’s eye. Once you see and feel how you want to stroke your putt the trick becomes simply keeping your conscious mind busy and out of the way (for example thinking about your preshot ritual) so your subconscious can do its thing. Our procedure for developing this skill and our recommended drills and practice techniques to ingrain it are detailed in Chapters 11 and 13.

At this point the right wrist is completely on top of the left wrist. Your hands are “through the ball”. You have continued to rotate around your spine, and you have tried to stop the left elbow on the imaginary line. This is the primary action for amateur golfer to increase power, while reducing slice.
