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:

Most Balls Are Pretty Good

This isn’t Consumer Reports and I’m not writing a ball-by-ball evaluation of the golf ball industry. My tests show that most name-brand balls on the market are very nearly in balance. But they’re not perfectly balanced. And when you are as concerned as 1 am about putting then something needs to be done because these balls can affect your putting.

Before going on you should understand that I ‘m not writing this to criticize ball manufacturers. I know how difficult it is to make anything perfect in this world particularly a golf ball. The balls of today are far better than the balls of 10 years ago and the ball manufacturers deserve credit for that. Still most of their balls are not yet perfect.

How can this imbalance affect your putting? Figure 9.8.3 shows the ball track recorded for the “mud-lump” ball stroked by Perfy with a perfect nine-foot stroke. The green had a Stimpmeter rating of 9.5 and the putt was straight as evidenced by the roll of the perfectly balanced ball beside it. This was the worst-case scenario identical strokes by Perfy the off-balance mud-lump ball (left) rolls well off-line compared to the perfectly balanced ball (right).

Wind Lopsided Balls Dimples Rain Sleet and Snow 205 for this mud-lump ball as we positioned it the worst possible way with its off-balance axis positioned exactly horizontal and perpendicular to the direction of roll. You can see how far off-line several more reasonable but still off-balance putts roll (predicted by our theoretical model) in Figure 9.8.4. To compare the off-balance effects of real halls to the theoretical predictions measured and marked a number of new balls bought off the shelf from local golf shops. Most of these balls rolled within a few inches of straight on nine-foot putts even when positioned for maximum off-line roll. Which means you shouldn’t be too upset by our “mud-ball” results. But how often do you miss a nine-foot putt by less than a few inches? It happens. A lot. center it will roll off-line (off-line values greater then 2.13 inches mean the ball would miss the hole on a straight putt and are shown shaded).

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

Extract from the book:

You’ve now had it proven that it is not only possible but also natural to swing your putter in a pure straight-line motion without any hand or forearm manipulations. And it’s equally possible and natural to swing your putter around or away from your body. Which stroke do you think lets you putt best? To me it’s obvious that the pure-in-line-square (pils) stroke is the simplest and best way to putt.

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 83

It’s Natural

Many other accuracy-oriented sports have embraced the pure-in-line stroke motion over a screen-door path including basketball bowling croquet and shooting pool (Figure 4.7.8). In all of these skills you could hit or release the ball or object from either a straight in-line or curved (around the body) path. It should come as no surprise that the in-line path is chosen in every case because the curved path demands perfect timing of the release to achieve the desired result.

Look at the two motions for bowling: Both are perfect pendulums formed by the arm swinging from the shoulder. On the top the arm swings along the desired starting line of the ball so whether it is released a little early a little late or at the perfect time it always starts in the proper direction. In the lower figure the arm is swung out and around the body so only a perfectly timed release will start the ball rolling in the desired direction. The same comparison for shot accuracy is valid in croquet basketball pool and putting.

So does any golfer want to move the putter or aim the putterface in any direction other than the desired starting line of the putt at the moment of impact? Of course not! Yet some golfers think they can achieve the perfect path through impact by using a screen-door stroke which rotates around their bodies. They obviously don’t realize that the timing of impact (and ball position) must be perfect every time if they hope to have a chance of holing any putts. And they don’t realize that the in-line-square stroke motion minimizes the effects of inconsistencies in timing and ball position.

Golf Swing Tips

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

Extract from the book:

Golf Tuition Marriott Hollins Hall Hoteal & Country Club

Start your backswing. Focus on keeping your back straight, and your chest out. To help you swing directly around your spine, try focusing on rotating your right shoulder back and around your spine. If you focus on the right shoulder, your left shoulder will be in the correct position automatically. Simple. Keep your left elbow locked.
