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:

Now repeat this entire sequence 19 more times the last 5 with your eyes shut. That’s the entire stability drill for the 12-inch backswing stroke and it should take less than five minutes. 1)o it again a few days later except this time with the foam taped six inches behind the ball spot and seven inches ahead; this is the six-inch backswing stability drill which rolls the ball about the perfect speed for a two-foot putt on most greens. The third reference stroke drill is for a 25-footer and for this the foam should he placed at 18 inches behind the ball spot and 21 inches ahead.

These three stable reference strokes are typical of strokes you need on the course in every round. But by practicing with no ball no pressure on results and no distractions you can focus solely on rhythm and feel. Doing these drills over a period of time (say a few nights a week for six months) will embed the feel for stable (properly accelerating) strokes into your subconscious and you’ll begin using and feeling them on the course out of habit (an occasional repeat of these drills over the years will help keep bad habits away). Of course you will use the 12-inch backswing stroke on longer and shorter putts because green speeds vary and the putts may be running up- or downhill. But the rhythm and stability will be there. You’ll feel them sense them and be able to call up these strokes from your subconscious simply by closing your eyes and searching for that feel as you are creating your preview stroke.

Everybody can benefit from the stability drills but they are especially helpful to golfers who make good mechanical strokes yet decelerate into impact. If you’re not stable (accelerating) through impact every error you make is maximized in your results. Simply by making a tiny change from your present putting rhythm you may be able to change your unstable stroke to a stable one. And if you do your results will improve significantly even dramatically in pressure situations.

12.3 Groove Your Impact Point

If making solid contact between putter and ball is a problem you can improve if you are willing to do some careful work. I say work because it will take about 20 000 solid practice strokes to make solid contact a habit. And I say careful because many golfers who try to change their stroke in search of more solid contact

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.

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

Extract from the book:

The completed grip with both “V” shapes pointed toward the right shoulder. Note the “V” shapes are parallel with each other.Hopefully, you already have a grip that closely resembles this one. There are some slight variations, but this grip is standard for the most part. It should produce the best results. However, if you have a different grip than this, and you are more comfortable using it, you may continue using it. A grip is hard to change, and this one may feel really uncomfortable to you; however, benefits will come if you embrace this new grip. The “Simple Golf Swing” will most likely provide to you the desired results, even if you use your current grip. However, if you are still having problems when you get through the system, please incorporate the above grip method into your swing.
