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:

The best way right-handed golfers can stop their right-hand wrist from supplying unwanted power to the stroke – as they usually do when they break down the left wrist – is to use the left-hand-low-clamp grip popularized by Bernhard Langer (Figure 12.5.10). After switching to this grip early in his career he has played in 17 Masters tournaments (winning twice) was the world’s leading money winner (1993) played on nine European Ryder Cup teams and brought his worldwide victory total to more than 60. His left wrist never broke down once during all the strokes it took to accomplish these feats so don’t think this isn’t a great way

Place your lead (left for right-handed golfers) hand below the trailing hand on your grip. This moves the trailing hand from a position of power to one of submission during the stroke meaning it won’t control either the power or direction of your putt if it tries to add any adrenaline-aided power. This position also eliminates the tendency for the trailing hand (usually the more powerful of the two) to force the wrist of the lead hand to break down and pull putts.

Vertical Rotation

Before we move on to the more “artistic” aspects of putting in the next chapter let’s discuss how your shoulders should move in the putting stroke. I ‘m not saying you should putt with your shoulders (although you could do worse) because

Improve Your Stroke Mechanics 301 when I do say that golfers tend to move their heads in the opposite direction from their putters. Apparently they assume their heads are sitting on their shoulders which they are not; your head sits on your spine. However when golfers are told to rock their shoulders they often rock their heads the other way (as seen earlier in the shadow motions shown in Figure 12.5.2).

But your shoulders will move when you swing your arms in a proper pendulum motion and if your hands are vertically below your shoulders during this time your shoulders should move in a vertical plane. To see and feel this motion stand in the middle of a doorway with a long broom handle or something similar held across your shoulders (use two strong rubber bands to hold the rod against your shoulders as shown in Figure 12.5.11). Without aiming at a target hole swing your putterhead parallel to the wall. If you rotate your shoulders at all horizontally the broom handle will bang into the doorjamb and immediately stop the motion. Just a few minutes of feeling proper vertical rotation motion which does not touch the broomstick to the doorjamb and you will get the right idea.

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

Extract from the book:

The True Roller

Years ago I created the True Roller a simple ramp device to control the direction and speed of simulated putts (a 1978 photo is shown below). It turns out to be one of the most useful devices I’ve come up with for rolling balls and testing on the greens.

The first True Roller was eight feet long and very cumbersome but later versions have included laser-aiming attachments refined ball-release mechanisms and a level to ensure that the release ramp is always perfectly vertical and releasing balls in a straight line (Figure 2.6.4). The original intent of the True Roller was to simulate putts near the end of their rolls because the initial release of a ball differed from the initial roll of the putted balls (putts start out slightly lofted and sliding along the grass whereas the ball is already rolling as it leaves the True Roller). However after we tested and calibrated the True Roller to simulate putts we found no essential differences in putting results between balls putted versus those released from the True Roller.

You will see many balls and test results from balls rolled from the True Roller in this book. Remember that the True Roller is simply starting each ball in a given direction at the given speed. And that is what putting is all about.

Look next at the top of Figure 2.6.5 which shows how far the same five balls will roll on an uphill putt (released from the True Roller each with the same energy as before). The uphill putts stop closer together (the distance between the longest and shortest balls is 7.5 feet) indicating that on uphill putts balls tend to roll closer to the same distance. This means the roll of an uphill putt is less sensitive to the length of the stroke than putts on a level surface. The lesson is that even if you don’t hit all of your uphill putts the right speed be sure to get them past the hole.

Problems on the Greens 25

That gives them a chance to go in and the longest ones will probably stop near enough to the hole to leave no-brainers coming back.

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

At this point the right wrist is completely on top of the left wrist. Your hands are “through the ball”. You have continued to rotate around your spine, and you have tried to stop the left elbow on the imaginary line. This is the primary action for amateur golfer to increase power, while reducing slice.
