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?

My Answers

We recently purchased some wind velocity measuring equipment and measured average wind profiles which showed that wind speeds do indeed drop as they get closer to the earth’s surface. However we found that they don’t get to zero until they reach absolute ground level. And at the height of a golf ball – 1.68 inches above the ground – the wind can be blowing at a relatively rapid pace. When we saw wind speeds at 1 inch above ground level within 20 to 30 percent of those speeds measured at 6 feet we realized that our pant cuffs and leaves are not moving on their own.

And yes it’s true balls sitting stationary on the green don’t move even when the greens are pretty fast until wind speeds reach about 25 to 30 mph an inch off the ground at which point you would call it a very windy day. But the force of friction between a green and a ball at rest (static friction) is different from the friction between the same green and a moving ball (rolling friction) by a significant amount with rolling friction being lower.

Armed with these ideas and statistics I decided to look into wind’s effects on rolling putts. The intent was to learn how much the wind has to be blowing before you should be concerned about its effects on your putting.

And those arc the same reasons I strongly discourage a narrow stance for putting. A narrow stance makes it too easy for the golfer to move and rotate the lower body. Furthermore a narrow stance isn’t stable enough to resist being pushed around in the wind.

To establish a stable base for your stroke take a stance width that is at least as wide as your shoulders (Figure 4.10.13) as measured from the centerline of your

If stability continues to be a problem you might borrow something from Arnold Palmer who established a very solid base for his putting stroke by standing knock-kneed (Figure 4.10.14). With his knees turned in Arnold absolutely could not move his lower body. However most golfers I suggest this to seem embarrassed to use it which is too had because it works.

104 The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics

Opening or closing your stance by moving your feet off the flow-line is accept able but not recommended. Because your stance can affect your shoulder align ment and the line of your shoulders is vital to good putting I normally recom mend setting the feet square. Of course it is possible to move your feet open or closed without moving your shoulders. Just be sure your shoulder flow-line re mains parallel-left to your Aimline.

My measurements also show that many of the world’s best putters create a stable lower body by placing slightly more than half – 55 to 60 percent – of their weight on their forward foot.

Golf Swing Tips

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

Extract from the book:

The chest and shoulders shouldn’t be turning, unless your arms are turning with them. In other words, you want to start your swing with a shoulder turn, but your arms should start swinging at EXACTLY the same time. They are an extension. They are connected. Furthermore, your arms shouldn’t be swinging unless your chest is rotating. Don’t start swinging your arms without starting the shoulder turn. They are connected. Your left elbow remains locked throughout the entire swing. When you complete your shoulder turn, your arms should stop as well. The goal will be to have your left arm exactly parallel to the ground. Your elbow is still locked. When it gets there…STOP. Do not continue to swing your arms.
