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:

Rhythm and Repetition Eliminate Thinking

Watch any good athlete and even more than the skill you can’t help but notice the same attribute over and over: rhythm. It may seem natural – and in some cases I think it is – but it is something they continually must work on (repeat) and something that anybody can develop and make his or her own.

Rhythm is more than the fluidity of the athletic motion. Rhythm is a way for athletes to suppress thinking and obtain consistency and accuracy. Basketball players create and use a rhythm to help make more free throws: They bounce the ball three times position the ball breathe deeply cock their arms and fire all in a

Stability and Rhythm: Two Artistic Fundamentals 141 sequence and rhythm practiced (repealed) thousands of times. Tennis pros set up the rhythm for their serve in the last few seconds before they begin: They bounce the ball rock their body swing their arms then cock toss and fire. It ‘s all set up through a preshot routine and ritual to be as rhythmic as possible then habitualized through repetition for the most consistent and accurate results possible.

So you need to putt with practiced rhythm to allow your body and subconscious brain to “do what it knows how to do.” Because nowhere in sports is accuracy more important than putting a golf ball.

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

Extract from the book:

The Simplest Pendulum

To examine the putting stroke of vertical pendulum A look at Figure 4.6.9 where the golfer’s hands hang vertically below his shoulders. On the left of this photo the attached putter hangs vertically below the hands which looks a bit strange. But stay with me. If the golfer now swings his arms straight hack along the line of this intended putt lets them relax and then swings them through – guided simply by the force of gravity – the putterface would swing perfectly along the line of this putt (Figure 4.6.9A’). This path is purely in-line along the Aimline just like pendulum A with no side forces or path curvature.

By starting with the putterface square to the line and using this pure-in-line stroke the ball would have to start rolling on that line. The pendulum swings this way because gravity is the only force acting on the stroke: There are no rotating forces to turn the putterface away from the target line and no side forces to push the putter off the straight Aimline path.

Now imagine a minor modification to this putter a lightweight but much longer face (Figure 4.6.9A`’). With this change the putter would still swing perfectly in-line beneath the shoulders and there still is nothing to cause rotation or circular motion in the stroke. In Figure 4.6.9A’ we’ve added a lightweight but rigid connection from the grip to the putterface near its toe. Assuming this connection is truly lightweight and doesn’t change the putter’s balance the swing path still would not change still would not rotate and would naturally continue to swing in-line along the straight line path beneath the shoulders.

Finally having seen how this putter swings with both shafts now look what happens when the vertical part of the shaft is removed in Figure 4.6.9A”. By removing the original vertical shaft (which hung under the hands) and the back of the putterface we have turned this into a normal-looking putter which still swings in a pure-in-line path as before. This face (again assuming the putter was balanced perfectly) will not rotate open or closed and will not swing or curve around the body. The natural swinging motion of this putter will be purely in-line along a line exactly parallel to his shoulder line. In other words this putter path will track right down the Aimline the intended line of the putt.

4.7 A Pure-In-Line Stroke Keeps the Putterface Square

Section 4.6 should prove to you that a pure simple pendulum can swing in three different motions all of which can relate to a putting stroke. The pendulum of a putting stroke (assuming the golfer has a pendulum and doesn ‘t hit with his hands or wrists or move his body) is the pendulum formed between his suspension point (between his shoulders) and his hands (Figure 4.7.1). And it is this position of a golfer’s hands the angle of his pendulum relative to vertical that determines not only the natural swing path of his putterhead but also the behavior of the putterface angle relative to the Aimline. (Note: your elbows and forearms don’t have to be under your shoulders just your hands.)

Position the golf ball in the manner previously described, then stand straight up. Your knees are not locked, but they are close to locked. Your back is perfectly straight. Your chest should be out. It won’t feel right to have your back straight and chest protruding. It will look and feel “exaggeratedâ€
