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:

Face Your Special Problems 353 putt past the hole even if you stroke it as gently as you can. A good example of how to use this technique is illustrated by two-time U.S. Open champion Lee Janzen (Figure 14.5.2). On the left Lee is holding his putter at normal length which you should do as you make your practice swings and preview stroke. When he steps into his final address position ready to start his ritual and putt (shown on the right) he grips down on his putter (the softer he wants to impact the putt the farther he grips down). This gives him the best stroke his touch and feel can create through his preview stroke plus the added benefit of using a slightly shorter putter to take that last little bit of power out of a really scary putt.

How much speed will a toe strike or gripping down take out? Only you can answer that and only by practicing on the actual slopes and greens you play. Again don’t use either of these techniques for normal downhill putts. You want to hit those solidly as close to the sweetspot as you can using your normal well-developed putting touch to control your putt ‘s speed.

14.6 Cheat on Breaking Putts

I advocate “cheating” on short putts (less than eight feet) when they are on side slopes and have more than four inches of true break. By cheating I mean using physics to prevent one of the difficulties of the game from giving you trouble.

The difficulty of the game I refer to is that all golfers are human and occasionally mis-hit putts. When this happens on short breaking putts there is always a preferred side of the putterface (the uphill side of the putter from the sweetspot)

354 Face Your Special Problems where it is okay for you to mis-hit a little bit and still hole the putt. Contact the ball on the downhill side however and your putt has no chance at all.

A different kind of move is the “peek ” in which the golfer both turns and looks up in the middle of his stroke in an attempt to see the result. Probably the most famous peek was at the 1970 British Open at St. Andrews when Doug Sanders (Figure 4.10.20) missed a 2½-foot putt to drop into a tie with Jack Nicklaus who then beat him in the playoff.

4.11 Putter Fitting

Proper putter fitting is not fundamentally a part of putting stroke mechanics but there’s no doubt that it can help you make better strokes. If the length or lie of a putter is wrong for you you’ll be forced to make compensations in order to putt at all well (Figure 4.11.1). And every characteristic of your putter that is poorly fit to your body size shape setup posture or alignment is one more card stacked against the odds of your executing a pure accurate smooth and noncompensating stroke.

The truth is that most golfers change their strokes to fit their putters when they should be changing their putters to fit their strokes (Figure 4.11.2). They don’t do much in the way of putter fitting in some cases because all they’ve been told about choosing a putter is to use one that they like the looks of. In other instances golfers use whatever putter has been given to them.

You should never change from your proper eye position stance or posture to accommodate a poorly fit putter.

Please start with the three pictures below. Understand that the point of these pictures is to get your arms and chest connected. You should understand the feeling of “being connected” before you try to incorporate this critical step into your golf swing. If you hold the club straight out in front of you, there will be a triangle formed between your arms and chest. Just focus on keeping the triangle between your arms and chest fixed. Just move your arms with your chest. When your chest stops rotating, your arms also stop. Please see the three pictures below and try it out. Turn to your right, then back around to your left, keeping the triangle between your arms and chest constant at all times.
