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 bad news is that the short-term feel for your putting stroke motion is subject to the short-term time constant of eight seconds. When does this come into play? As you are learning and practicing putting touch and on the course as you make practice strokes in preparation for the real one.

The way you learn what size stroke is required for each length putt during practice is by trying several and seeing how they look. This is what practice swings are for. After each stroke – whether or not it was the right length to roll the ball the

Five Nonphysical Building Blocks: Touch Feel Attitude Routine and Ritual 123 perfect distance and speed – your mind consciously and subconsciously correlates your stroke action with the result it would anticipate it to produce. Then when you putt the ball usually rolls for at least four to six seconds or even longer and you need to retain the feel of each stroke for at least that long to maximize the learning of the correlation between the feel of your stroke motion and the result it produced (the roll of your putt). This is why you must learn to hold your follow-through until the ball has stopped moving: As soon as you drop your putter or move your body in a motion unrelated to putting the feeling of the stroke is replaced by the feeling of that motion. Your mind remembers only the body’s most recent sensations and these too fade by 30 percent every eight seconds.

Hold Your Finish

Greg Norman understands that he must hold his finish when putting (Figure 5.6.2). Just watch him: Whether he is putting to win a tournament or putting on a practice green he always holds his finish as he watches the ball roll. He learns a little hit about his putting his stroke and the green from every putt.

Compare this to the common golfer ‘s reaction to a putt (Figure 5.6.3). The ball is barely struck and he is reacting talking complaining letting go of the putter standing up and turning away. Before the ball has stopped rolling he has lost all feeling for the stroke that moved it and there is nothing left to correlate with the result. Not only hasn’t his putt found the hole (a safe bet) but the golfer hasn’t learned anything from it. By holding his finish and watching his putts Norman learns a lot about his putting. By looking away and complaining while the ball is still rolling most amateurs learn little to nothing about theirs. And by the way if you ever learn as much about your putting as Greg has about his you’ll probably win lots of tournaments too.

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

Extract from the book:

Do you still think putter path is as important as face angle? Reposition the piece of wood to produce a path at 45 degrees to the right of your Aimline and hold the putterface square to the Aimline aiming straight at the hole. Again use both hands to control face angle and path and slide the putterface along the edge of the wood. This stroke – with perfect face angle but 45-degree off-line path (Figure 4.8.3) – starts the ball only about 7 degrees off of the Aimline.

So if you are going to make a stroke error of 45 degrees which result would you rather see? A putt off-line by 7 degrees or 37 degrees? I’m sure you now agree with me that if you want to putt consistently along your intended Aimline you’d better learn to keep your putterface angle square to that line (the square face angle advantage of the pils vs. screen-door stroke should

You can never do it. You’re either working on keeping the face angle square to your early or you’re late by a minute a sec-Aimline than you do on perfecting your stroke ond a millisecond or a nanosecond.

The point of contact between your putter and the ball determines how much energy is transferred to the ball at the moment of impact. And the amount of energy your putts receive determines both how fast and far the balls will roll and how much your putts will break. Most golfers believe the distance their putts roll is determined strictly by the length and force of their swing. That’s true only if they transfer a consistent percentage of energy from putter to ball at impact. And that is seldom the case.

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

Extract from the book:

Golf Tuition St Enodoc Golf Club

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.
