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:

At the beginning of this chapter 1 said that speed is important enough to be the number-one principle in putting. Now you know why. It is the one element that you should think about with intense full-bore flat-out focus in the form of ball tracks every time you putt.

9.1 Are You a Real Golfer?

I’m not asking how well you score or anything about your handicap. What I want to know is how much do you enjoy playing the game? For example when I lived in Abilene Texas about 15 years ago l played with a group of friends all of whom could be characterized as real golfers. We had a regularly scheduled game that went on come rain wind sleet or snow. The only time we didn’t play was when the wind conditions of the day failed the “chain test ” (Figure 9.1.1): If the wind wasn’t holding the chain horizontal to the ground we played. We are real golfers who love to play the game.

So let me ask you again. Are you a real golfer? If not you may want to skip this chapter because it may tell you more than you want to know about putting. I’m going to discuss how the wind your golf ball’s balance and even its dimples can affect your putting.

Extract from the book:

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 67

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

Imagine the line that has been drawn is your spine (axis). When the backswing is made, just rotate everything around that axis. If you do this properly, you will be on the correct plane. This correct swing plane will help your power, accuracy, and consistency. Keep the left arm locked as shown.
