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:

When I ask golfers how they read the break of their putts what they are looking at or how they do this they often can’t answer. Those who do sometimes say they pick the spot they want the ball to roll over then aim at it. Many of them tell me they just feel the break in their “gut ” and putt “out there” somewhere. If you think about these answers and compare them to the situation detailed above you can understand why golfers miss most of their putts below the hole: Your putt needs to start on a line aimed at the true-break point to roll over the visual-break apex; but you don’t have a chance of rolling over the visual-break apex if you start your putt rolling at it because gravity will pull it down the hill every time.

If you just”trust it “”go with your instinct “”go with your gut “”trust your first read ” or “listen to your caddy ” you are a “gut-feel” putter. You’re probably trying to aim at the visible-break apex thinking it’s the true break and probably missing about 90 percent of your breaking putts below the hole. Most golfers are “gut-feel” putters. It’s the easiest way to putt because it ‘s comfortable (it’s the way you first learned) and your subconscious keeps you from being embarrassed. Unfortunately it’s not the best way to make putts. But that’s the way it’s been for over 400 years and it’s likely to continue that way for another 400 if you don’t start playing more break.

Test Your Ability to Compensate

If you feel that letting the subconscious do all the work by compensating is the easiest way to putt I want to ask a favor. But first we must establish some facts:

1. You believe trusting in your “gut feel” to read break then letting your subconscious do the rest (compensating for your under-read) is the best way to putt.

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

Extract from the book:

• To lag a putt is to minimize thoughts of holing it instead concentrating on stopping the ball as close to the proper distance and as close to the hole as possible thus minimizing the possibility of three-putting (which is first priority).

Problems on the Greens 31

Lag putters (golfers who always seem to be lagging their putts) usually leave more than half of their putts short which is not good when you are trying to hole the maximum percentage of makable putts (those inside 30 feet). But to be a good lag putter from outside 35 feet is one of putting’s
