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:

We quantify misses by breaking them into nine categories or zones (Figure 10.2.1) and keeping a record of them over time. Once you know if there is a pattern and if so which one it becomes easier to deal with whatever is causing it. Several of the games described in the next few chapters were developed to retrain golfers’ subconscious habits resulting in the elimination of such patterns.

For example if you learned that you tend to miss short and to the right of the hole (zone 2) the assumption might be that you strike putts on the toe of the putter. After confirming this by measurement (using `Teacher Putting Impact ‘tape) you would practice with Teacher Clips (to improve your impact pattern) and play the game called “Safety Drawback” (to improve your feel and touch). In time your

216 The Improvement Process pattern of misses short and right would disappear and you would start making more putts (more details of this problem are in section 12.3).

10.3 Third is Analysis

The purpose of measuring and testing your putting abilities is to allow accurate analysis of your putting game followed by a diagnosis of what you need to do to i mprove it without making mistakes. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of that phrase “without making mistakes.” The essence of good teaching is properly analyzing and correcting the student’s problems without causing other problems in the process. 1 like to think that’s why our schools help so many golfers learn to putt better.

If you are going to do this yourself (which is fine; it can be done) I caution you to be very careful: Make sure your testing and analysis are correct. Because while working hard and properly with good feedback on the right problem will almost always produce improvement working hard on the wrong thing usually makes things worse. If you aren’t 100 percent confident that you are working properly on the right building block then stop practicing and go watch television. At least being a couch potato won ‘t screw up your putting!

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

Extract from the book:

Rather we talk about the “Aimline” you intend to start the ball rolling on the “ini tial line” you actually start the ball on and where the “ball track” goes after that.

Ball-Hole Line and Target Line

When we talk about the “ball-hole” line for any putt we mean the straight line between where the ball sits (before you putt it) and the hole (Figure 4.1.2). How ever because the hole is always your ultimate target some golfers call this their

“target line.” But many golfers use “target line” to describe the line between their ball and the point at which they are aiming the line on which they hope to start the putt rolling. But you seldom try both to aim and start your ball rolling along a straight line at the hole and expect it to keep rolling on that line because most putts break at least a little bit.

Therefore it is clearer to refer to this direction as your hall-hole line. Also realize that the ball-hole line extends forever in both directions (as shown) and that it is the ball-hole line that most golfers walk to and stand on behind their ball as they first try to read the break of their putts.

Standing behind the ball trying to read the green most golfers decide how much they think the putt is going to break and then where they are going to aim. They select a point or a direction where they intend to start their putt and we refer to the line from the ball to that point or direction as the “Aimline ” or desired initial starting line of the putt (Figure 4.1.3). It’s best called the Aimline because it is the line along which you align your body feet and (it’s hoped) your stroke because you want to start the ball rolling along that line. It ‘s where you’re aiming. If everything was figured properly the ball starts on your Aimline and will roll the proper speed and break (because of the slope of the green) gently into the cup.

The entire path that your putt takes is the “ball track” (left side of Figure 4.1.4). It may remind you of the “action track” sometimes used on television to show how a ball has traveled. The distances between the balls on the track indicate how fast (relatively) the putt is traveling: Farther apart means it is rolling faster; closer together and it is rolling slower. A detailed ball track provides an accurate understanding of a putt’s entire motion – both where and how fast it was going – better even than the same putt recorded and played back on videotape.

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

Extract from the book:

Golf Tuition Market Harborough Golf Club

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.
