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:

You develop and refine your feel for a putt during your preparation routine. When you make a practice stroke you evaluate the physical sensation and vision of the

314 Develop Your Artistic Senses (Feel Touch Green-Reading) stroke against your mind’s-eye image of what you think you’ll need to feel and see during the real stroke. So practicing feel must include (1) performing your routine and ritual (2) executing your stroke (3) seeing your results and (4) comparing what actually happened with what was supposed to happen (Figure 13.3.1).

The best feel practice scenario is to putt three ball cycles over and over again from the same spot. Walk off the exact distance and read the break (see section

13.4 below). Then go through your five-step routine and ritual (Chapter 11) and stroke the first ball. If your results are perfect you feel good after impact and follow-through and you look up and the ball is going into the hole at the right speed. Then do it again and again to groove and ingrain what you just did. Remember: Before each putt perform your routine making at least one practice stroke you like for your preview stroke move in do your ritual and putt.

If the results of your first putt are less than perfect back away and figure out why. If the problem was playing the wrong amount of break or sensing the wrong touch start all over again with your preparation routine (Figure 13.3.2). When you are practicing feel you must know exactly what you are trying to do before you try to do it. Then refine the process until you can do it precisely and correctly.

To get as much feel training as possible keep repeating these 3-ball cycles again and again for the same putt. You should be able to refine your feel to a fine degree after a few cycles.

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

Extract from the book:

The angle between your back and your hips should be great enough to provide room for your arms to swing with your hands vertically below your shoulders but small enough to let you comfortably practice putting at least 10 or 15 minutes at a time (Figure 4.10.4 middle photograph). Your knees should be slightly flexed enough to give you stability on windy days without making you feel crouched or uncomfortable.

The most comfortable and solid putting posture sets your center of mass (the center of your weight) over a spot between the balls of your feet as shown in Figure 4.10.5. Leaning too far forward so your weight gets out over your toes can cause severe inconsistencies in the impact point of your putts. Leaning too far back away from the ball places too much weight on your heels which leads to instability particularly in windy conditions again hindering solid and repeatable impact.

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 97

Eye Position

Once your posture is correct as described above position your eyes somewhere directly over the Aimline of your putt as discussed in section 4.4. Accomplish this by moving closer to or farther away from the ball – not by changing your back angle or leaning over or hack. Remember the Aimline extends behind the hall so it’s okay to set your eyes slightly behind the ball Jack Nicklaus – style (Figure 4.10.6).

One word of realism here: Positioning your eyes over your Aimline won’t make you aim perfectly but it will allow you to aim consistently. If you learn how to aim perfectly (in Chapter 11) by eliminating compensations for your stroke faults then consistently perfect aim will become automatic.

After we get through the remaining sections, you will understand that this will change your swing plane a bit. Your swing plane will become more horizontal, the straighter you stand up. Please realize that nothing else should change. You will swing each of your clubs in exactly the same fashion (found below). This repositioning at setup will have a huge effect on the outcome of your shot, so please take some time to see where you are the most comfortable.
