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 most efficient way to teach your brain what perfect putter alignment looks like (that is when the putterface is perfectly aligned to your Aimline) is with a device called the LazrAimer (Figure 11.7.1). We use this device with every student in our three-day schools to measure their ability to aim and teach them how to improve this ability. The LazrAimer actually doubles the visible manifestation of the mistake (Figure 11.7.2) which is good because after practicing with it for a while and beginning to improve it points out the remaining errors no matter how small. Although three days of practice is not enough to learn to aim well it gives students a start and makes them very aware of the problem. By the time they leave us they know that if they don’t learn to aim properly any work they do to improve their strokes will probably he wasted.

The LazrAimer shines a low-power laser beam onto a small mirror attached to the putterface. After aiming the putter at the LazrAimer to the best of your ability you say “on” to voice-activate the beam which turns on for a few seconds

264 Establish Your Practice Framework bounces off the putterface back to the wall and shows any error in alignment.

Golfers who practice with this device dramatically improve their ability to aim seeing results in as little as five minutes. However by the next day most of that improvement has disappeared. Our experience shows that it takes about three weeks for improvement to make it to the golf course. Even years after learning to aim properly some Tour professionals work with their LazrAimers in their hotel rooms to keep their aim “spot-on.”

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

Extract from the book:

4.10 Ball Position Posture and Flow-Lines

In sections 4.4 through 4.9 the factors discussed are the building blocks involved with the swinging action of your putting stroke mechanics. From here on in this chapter the factors I’ll explain will be ones relating to your body mind and equipment. While all of these are less familiar and less popular to work on than the other fundamentals of stroke mechanics that doesn’t mean they won’t be important to your success on the greens.

For example say you employ a very unusual putting posture but it’s one you like and lets you execute a perfect stroke consistently and repeatedly. Then I say it’s absolutely acceptable. If it works and you like it it’s okay with me no matter how odd or unconventional it seems. However if anything about your unusual posture adversely affects one or more of the fundamentals of stroke mechanics then you should change it. So all of the following are important only in how they influence your stroke.

Ball Position

Any putting stroke that swings in an arc suspended from somewhere around your sternum (or some other spot between your shoulders) will have a bottom to its arc a low point a place where the sole of the club is closest to the ground. I have found that the best place to position the ball in your stance is approximately two inches ahead of this bottom point. At this spot you have the best chance of striking the ball on an ever-so-slight upward arc as your putter comes up from its lowest point (Figure 4.10.1). Striking the ball slightly on the upswing gets putts rolling on top of the grass without lofting them too high which produces bounce or hitting them down into the surface of the green so they squirt off to the right or left.

Of course where your putter contacts the ball also depends on the effective loft of the putterface at the moment of impact. In Figure 4.10.2 the center ball is being struck slightly on the upswing by a putter with a small amount of loft so it starts on top of the grass with almost no spin. This is the ideal situation. The other

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 95 balls in this illustration also are struck at the same point in the stroke but are launched upward or down and receive more spin because there is more or less loft on the putterface. Since true overspin backspin and bouncing do nothing but make putts roll less consistently and spin effects are long gone before the ball reaches the hole there is no reason to try for anything other than rolling the ball on top of the grass with minimum spin.

Golf Swing Tips

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

Extract from the book:

Golf Tuition Nizels Country Club

Start your backswing. Focus on keeping your back straight, and your chest out. To help you swing directly around your spine, try focusing on rotating your right shoulder back and around your spine. If you focus on the right shoulder, your left shoulder will be in the correct position automatically. Simple. Keep your left elbow locked.
