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:

Reading Greens Better

Once you become proficient at green-speed and slope recognition and you know what to look for to see the visible break in putts you are ready to begin developing your ability to predict how much putts will truly break. Making these predictions for where to aim so your ball tracks will find the hole is the skill of green-reading. And that means it’s at the heart of becoming a good putter. Of course your future green-reading will improve by knowing and remembering what your putts did on similar greens in the past particularly when you have reference knowledge that helps to compare how similar the conditions were. This is why I try so hard to convince you to work on getting better at seeing green speed slope and true break. But by “seeing” better I don’t mean improving your vision so it is sharper than 20/20.

There is more to seeing than meets the eyeball. While getting new glasses or contact lenses can change the way light is focused in your eyes you also can change the way your brain understands and interprets that light. For example in stead of seeing a large metal box in your kitchen with round circles on the top you want to be seeing an electric range with heating coils used to cook food (and which would burn your hands if touched). Likewise in putting: If you understand more and better interpret the meaning of what your eyeballs take in from the greens the more and better you can see the true break in putting.

For example if instead of seeing a green that slopes to the right you could see a

2-slope green that will make your nine-foot putt break six inches to the right that

Develop Your Artistic Senses (Feel Touch Green-Reading) 335 would be good. If instead of seeing a pretty fast green you could see a 10-speed green just like the one you putted on last week when you ran the ball eight feet past the hole that would be very helpful. And if instead of seeing a putt that looked as if it broke two inches into the cup you’d see a visual break of two inches which you know means you need to start the ball six inches above the hole (because it will truly break six inches) you would be much more likely to make the putt. In all of these cases you would be seeing more and seeing better.

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

Extract from the book:

School students turn (top) slide (middle) and reverse (bottom) their bodies during their putting stroke motions.

The final power source is the best power source the gentle swinging of the arms (which also involves the shoulders). Think about a grandfather clock in which the pendulum swings back and forth with a gentle constant rhythmic motion. Now imagine your arms are connected at your shoulders at one end and at the putter at the other end forming a triangle as shown in Figure 4.5.3. Imagine letting this triangle become the pendulum of a grandfather clock (Figure 4.5.4) swinging back and forth with the same gentle constant motion. This is what I call a pendulum putting stroke and it’s the best stroke I know because it is the most easily repeatable and predictable (plus additional benefits as you will soon see).

A pendulum stroke works under pressure because adrenaline-filled muscles don’t get to determine how far the ball rolls. In this stroke putting speed and roll are determined solely by the length of the stroke motion. As a result if you practice controlling speed this way you can be sure that it will work on the course and under pressure the same way. And that’s what you want.

4.6 Putter Path Is a Small Factor

I’m fairly sure there are almost as many different putting paths as there are golfers. And it seems there are as many ways to stand over (address) a putt too. Even for the same golfer each day’s stroke path seems to he different from the last with some golfers changing their paths from straight to breaking putts and changing again from a right-to-left breaker to a left-to-right breaker. Common sense should tell you that changing this often can’t be a good idea; my putting mantra – “simpler is better” – guarantees that the more different putting strokes you employ the worse your problems on the green.

The most practiced putting fundamental is the putter path. However my testing shows that path is actually one of the least significant factors in good putting. Yet when I ask golfers on the practice green what they are working on the most common answer is always “the path of my putter.”

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€
