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:

The best way to adjust for putting over a level change on a green – say from one tier to another – is to not adjust your touch at all. Instead imagine a hole behind or in front of the real hole on a level green (ignore the level change). If you are changing levels uphill imagine the imaginary hole is farther away; if your putt changes levels downhill imagine the imaginary hole is closer to you. Learn to estimate how much these level changes affect your normal roll distances and then learn to see your imaginary hole at that adjusted distance. It’s much easier to imagine another hole than it is to adjust your touch for distance which you’ve worked so hard to develop (to that perfect touch of rolling the ball 17 inches past on putts inside of 35 feet exactly to the hole on longer putts).

Train yourself to see imaginary holes (at adjusted distances) by using the Phony-Hole on two-tier practice greens. Lay the Phony-Hole in front of (or behind) the real cup and imagine you are putting on a level surface to it when you take your practice stroke looks to determine your preview stroke. It will take only a few minutes of practice to learn how far behind or ahead of the real hole the Phony-Hole should be placed to get good results.

13.3 Refine Your Feel

Now that you have good touch you need good feel to be able to transform what your touch tells you is needed into a stroke that feels right and that you believe will provide the perfect roll (speed and distance) required.

Remember touch is knowing “what” to do while feel is knowing “how” to do it. So when you practice feel you must assume you already know what is needed (the size of the required stroke) and you’re trying to create the how (feel) to do it. Although this assumption isn’t always the case on the course (sometimes your touch gives you its best estimate of what is needed but you doubt its accuracy) you

Develop Your Artistic Senses (Feel Touch Green-Reading) 313 must trust your touch when you practice feel on the putting green. This means feel practice should be very repetitive internalizing the process of producing a given stroke and roll after you know the power and distance needed for that putt.

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

Extract from the book:

If you don ‘t learn to aim correctly then no one (myself and my Scoring Game Schools included) will ever be able to teach you a good putting stroke. A good putting stroke with bad aim will miss every time and your subconscious will never let you learn a stroke that it knows will miss every time. Instead you ‘ll begin compensating. However once you learn to aim accurately along the Aimline you choose your putting instincts will lead you to make better less compensating strokes and that leads to holing more putts.

4.5 Power Source

Your power source is the part of your body that supplies the power to control and move the putter through the impact zone of your stroke. The muscles you use to control your putter determine your putting power source. The three most common power sources used in putting are: (1) the small muscles of the fingers hands wrists and forearms; (2) the arms and shoulders; and (3) body motion.

Fingers Hands and Wrists

Most golfers control their putting with the small muscles of their hands wrists and forearms. These are the muscles that control most of the things we do in life – hitting things twisting things moving things – so using our hands and forearms in golf is instinctive and therefore feels natural to us. But instinct and natu

68 The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics ralness don’ t necessarily mean correct. And in fact trying to find a way to putt that is both initially comfortable and natural usually leads to disaster.

Supplying the power which determines how fast and how far your putts will roll from the muscles of your wrists hands and fingers (Figure 4.5.1) is bad. Wrist motion (hinging) causes putterface angle variations and hand and wrist muscles lend to tighten up and not work well under even slight pressure. But powering your putts with these muscles also brings an added complication: It’s not had all the time.

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

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!
