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:

Before you can improve your putting and become the best you can be you must fully understand the 15 building blocks of the putting game then understand your personal performance (what you do right and wrong) in each block. I say this from my experience working with so many golfers. The physical act of putting is not difficult to do and the putting stroke itself is not difficult to execute but many aspects of putting are difficult to learn to do. Most golfers try to work on their putting strokes with little or no feedback while many others work with bad or inaccurate feedback. As I said earlier putting is the simplest physical swing in golf but it also is the most frustrating for most golfers because when they practice to get better more often than not they get worse.

You can practice develop and improve the wrong aspect of your putting (that is an aspect that is not causing your problems) for the rest of your life and you’ll never putt any better. Because it doesn’t help to correct the wrong thing. To practice the wrong thing correctly is as bad as practicing the right thing incorrectly. Neither helps one hit.

No one who ever played the game said that golf is fair; let me add that this is especially true of putting. Any one putt can involve an incredible amount of luck either good bad or both at the same time. But there is no long-term luck in putting. No one makes putts because he is lucky all the time. And no one misses putts because he is always unlucky. Putting is a game of skill probabilities and statistics and whether or not there is a black cloud floating over your head on the golf course the probability is that the more putts you start on the right line at the right speed the more that will go into the hole.

What I’m talking about here is completely intellectual and has nothing to do with your stroke per se. It is that your head is where all your learning takes place.

Your muscle memories reside in your head – in front of your habits and above your green-reading abilities (Figure 10.1.1). On one hand accurate knowledge and understanding of what you’re doing both right wrong will make your physical learning easier. Inaccurate understanding and groundless opinions on the other hand will make improving your putting more difficult if not impossible.

Once you understand the putting game (the goal of the first nine chapters of this book) you can look inward to your common stroke faults and problems weaknesses and strengths abilities and inabilities and understand what you need to change (and what not to change) to improve.

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

Extract from the book:

One Negative

I’m not trying to sell you an in-line putting stroke. If this pils stroke seems too si mple and you want to make putting more difficult that’s okay by me. I’m just trying to inform you that a pure-in-line stroke is the easiest and best way to putt. But it’s not a panacea and there is one potential drawback to putting with this stroke (it’s the same drawback as for the screen-door stroke too).

To see this drawback look at how Perfy misses a simple three-foot putt with

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 85 his perfect in-line-square stroke (Figure 4.7.9). The problem is obvious: If you don’t align your shoulders parallel to the desired starting line for the putt even the perfect stroke path and a square putter blade won’t start the ball rolling on the right line.

So if you are going to take my advice and develop an in-line-square stroke you must be absolutely sure that as you learn this stroke you also learn to address the ball with your shoulders square (parallel-left) to your putting line. And as you will learn in Chapter 11 setting up parallel-left has other benefits as well.

4.8 The Importance of Putterface Angle

While putter path has relatively minor influence on the starting line direction of your putts (only about 17 percent) the putterface angle at the moment of impact (Figure 4.8.1) has a tremendous effect the remaining 83 percent (assuming contact is made on the sweetspot). This means face angle is more than four times as important as putter path. You may find this imbalance in importance surprising (most golfers do) but it’s true.

Focus on using your spine as your axis now. Turn both shoulders and sides directly around your spine. Keep your left arm locked, and your left wrist locked. Although difficult to see from this camera-angle, the triangle is still perfectly in tact.
