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:

After identifying a Dot-Spot mark the Face-line on your ball centered on the Dot-Spot which will make it exactly perpendicular to the Balance-line. This can get a little confusing so we use a hall mask (as shown in Figure 11.7.7) in the following procedure for marking balls:

Aiming Conclusion

Since the margin of error in putting is so small precise alignment is crucial which means it’s something you need to practice over and over. The best way to learn to aim is with a LazrAimer periodically practicing with it to train your brain what perfect alignment looks like. The Putting Track can teach you to aim if you use it long enough (and always set it up properly). If you don’t want to invest the money and time on either of these devices at least mark your balls with their Balance-lines and Face-lines and learn to use those lines to help you aim.

We’ve seen many students benefit from these improvements and odds are that you too will see your putting improve as you learn to aim better. But you definitely want to test these aiming aids on the practice green before you commit to them on the golf course. It takes a little more time to line up your Balance-line with your Aimline especially the first few times you give it a try so practice doing it on the practice putting green to keep your play timely on the course.

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

Extract from the book:

Before I discuss some of the many methods you could employ let me pass on to you the one thought the one axiom that governs all my theories on putting. It is this: Simpler is better. You’ll find research test results in many different disciplines that validate this conclusion. It is certainly true in almost all of sports. Why? Because regardless of your level of talent the less you give yourself to do (and still get the job done) the more consistently you can learn to do it. Whereas the more compensations that must he made in your putting stroke the more difficult it will be to repeat in such a way that it actually makes your putts. The more complex a putting stroke (that is the more compensations that must be made to make it effective) the more uncertain (or inconsistent) its results by any golfer regardless of skill level.

All this may sound routine and you may have heard it many times before but that doesn’t mean it isn’t true. And more important that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be taken seriously. So there’s no question about it: In putting simpler is better.

Methods of Putting 35

The simpler and easier the stroke is to execute the more precisely and repetitively you’ll be able to learn to execute it especially under pressure. And that’s why all my teaching begins with that principle.

Let’s examine some specifics about the many ways you can putt. First we’ll look at two of the easiest ways which are both illegal according to the USGA. Why? Well for one thing they really aren’t putting at all although they are very effective ways of rolling the ball on the green and into the hole. But they don’t utilize a stroke. Therefore according to the USGA they aren’t putting. And I must agree with them: They aren’t really putting.

The True Roller

After about 24 years of research I’ve determined that the easiest way to putt (notice I say “easiest ” not “easy”) is to roll putts from the True Roller. As shown in Figure 3.2.1 you can see that there’s no stroke at all: Simply aim the True Roller and then release the ball from the height required to provide it with the necessary speed. Looks easy right? The True Roller never pulls or pushes putts its backstroke never moves inside or outside the line so you might think it would he unbelievably easy to make putts using it. But it’s not that easy because you still have to know where to aim it and how fast and how far to roll the ball.

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

Extract from the book:

Golf Tuition Mid Herts Golf Club

I want you to understand the purpose of this technique before providing the details. It’s an easy technique that will produce fantastic results. You don’t need to have a long and complicated back swing to send the ball a long way down the fairway. Try taking, what you believe to be, a half swing. The ball will go almost as far. It may not leave the clubface with the same speed, but it also will not slice 40 yards to the right. Which shot would you rather have on a golf course? The drill I’m about to teach you will help you consistently keep the ball in the fairway, and give you better accuracy with all of your clubs.
