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:

But imagine what happens in the opposite direction a right aim-error on a left-to-right breaking pull. When the break under-read and the aim-bias go the same way it makes things worse. Sometimes a lot worse.

So if you love right-to-left-breaking putts and hate left-to-right breakers you may have a right-bias in your aim. That is you probably aim a little farther right than where you think you’re aiming on all putts. And if you love left-to-right breakers best you may be aiming a little to the left of where you intend.

Here’s a true-life example an experience I had with Lee Janzen in the summer of 1998. Lee had come to my Scoring Game School several years earlier and done very well. To my mind he is one of the world’s great putters. We had worked to gether several times since but he wanted to come in for some work one week before the 1998 U.S. Open and he had a problem. He couldn’ t make a left-to-right break ing putt of any length “to save his life” (his words not mine). As evidence he told me what had happened recently on Tour. One day he shot 62 followed the next by a 78. He said he hit the ball about the same (terrifically well) both rounds but when he shot 62 all the putts broke right-to-left. The next day all his putts broke left-to

Face Your Special Problems 359 right. He said his left-to-right putting was so bad he had started trying to play his approach shots to the sides of greens that would leave him right-to-left putts.

Lee’s problem turned out to he a very slight right aim-bias. He eliminated it in one week of hard work with Elevated Aimlines (Figure 14.8.1) and putted like a god the next week to win the U.S. Open at The Olympic Club in San Francisco. Again it was a small error in his putting that was creating a very large consequence. Lee wasn’t missing his left-to-right putts by much but he was missing them all. While I don’t know what caused Lee’s aim to go off in this case it doesn’t take much to cause this kind of a problem. I’ve seen this problem a number of times with good players. (Our school students and most amateurs have much worse aim than this because they use aim to compensate for their stroke errors. See Chapter 11 on learning to aim so this doesn ‘ t happen to you.)

” Facing ” Puffs Here’s another circumstance that can cause problems with breaking putts and lead you to favor one direction of break over the other.

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

Extract from the book:

Once you know how much gas you need then you have to figure out how hard to step on the gas pedal and when to step on the brakes as you drive on your Thanksgiving trip (something you figure out after you are into the trip) to negotiate the stops and turns in the road along the way. This “knowing how to drive” is analogous to knowing how to feel the proper stroke in putting where you must know in your mind’s eye the required size of the swing (or hardness of the hit) as well as how it will look and feel to impart the power which will provide the proper energy and speed of roll required. So touch is knowing how long the trip is and how much power it will require and feel is knowing how to apply the power (how to drive) to get you there.

Of course good touch and feel also require a proper read of the green knowing what will happen to your putt as it rolls. Think of green-reading as having a good road map for your journey. A good map or good directions can make the trip easy but a bad map with poor directions can turn the simplest trip into a nightmare.

So you need a map enough gas and the knowledge of how hard to step on the gas pedal along the way. You need all these things in concert to have a good trip. And you need good feel touch and green-reading skills also working together to putt well. Leave one out or do one poorly and it will he the same as losing your way on your Thanksgiving trip. Feel touch and green-reading are separate skills essentially different in nature yet each needs to be developed to provide the best result. And in case I ‘ve confused you that result is to roll the ball into the hole.

5.2 Touch and Feel Are in the Mind’s Eye

The skill bases for your touch and feel (green-reading will be discussed in Chapter 7) are intermingled in your mind. They are also intermingled in that they have a combined effect on putting results. But each is a separate skill which can be learned and developed over time.

Touch is in your head but it begins with knowing what your putt looks like and remembering (knowing based on past experience) how much power (the size or intensity of stroke) was required in the past for similar putts. Touch is an acquired skill based on past experiences. It resides in your memory bank and plays a part in creating the mind’s-eye picture of the size of stroke you need.

Before you can develop a good feel for a putt you need to have a good idea for how long it is and how much power will be required to roll it the proper speed and distance: In other words you need to have touch. Given that feel for the putt involves having a good idea of how to apply the power which will be needed to roll the ball at the optimum speed along that line to allow it to break into the hole. Having good feel for a putt is having the idea or picture in your mind’s eye of how the stroke will look and feel in both rhythm and intensity as it rolls the ball to the hole. So a part of feel is in your head. Feel also involves a kinesthetic awareness for the violence (or nonviolence) of your swing and knowing the physical sensation to expect at impact including the vibrations that will travel up the shaft after the putter strikes the ball. It is based on the feel of your collected experience from thousands of swings you’ve made on previous putts and the results they produced. This feel is produced in your nerve endings fingers arms and shoulders in the muscles of all of these entities as well as in your brain and memory.
