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:

Golfers who practice with this device dramatically improve their ability to aim seeing results in as little as five minutes. However by the next day most of that improvement has disappeared. Our experience shows that it takes about three weeks for improvement to make it to the golf course. Even years after learning to aim properly some Tour professionals work with their LazrAimers in their hotel rooms to keep their aim “spot-on.”

Establish Your Practice Framework 265

Aim in the Puffing Track

The Putting Track (Figure 11.7.3) is the poor man’s LazrAimer. It can be very effective improving a golfer ‘s ability to aim but it takes much more time as long as six months.

Every practice session must start with careful alignment of the Putting Track aiming it precisely at a target that simulates the hole. With something heavy in place to prevent the target from being hit (and moved) by the putted ball you set up parallel-left execute your preview stroke then step in set up to the putt and align your putterhead with the square-alignment lines on the track as you look at the target. Looking from your square putterface to the target gives you an accurate vision of proper aim and over time is what teaches you proper alignment recognition. The track is neither as accurate nor as efficient as the LazrAimer at teaching alignment but it does work over the long haul and is definitely worth a try.

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

Extract from the book:

The Pure Pendulum Stroke And that brings us to the simplest easiest most repeatable most reliable and therefore best way to putt – the pure no-hit pendulum stroke. By this I mean a putter swinging in rhythm with the arms and hands with no power input from the hands and wrists whatsoever. If the pendulum is pure and swings down the line with no face rotation it is as simple a motion as can be made under the Rules of Golf. And that’s why it is the method I recommend most often to my students. And I recommend it to you.

To see it in use watch George Archer on the Senior PGA Tour who has produced the purest and best pendulum stroke for the longest period of time of anyone I’ve ever seen (Figure 3.5.12). Over a 20-year period playing against Nicklaus Palmer Player Watson Crenshaw Ballesteros Faldo and Norman Archer holed a higher percentage of his putts than all the rest.

The list of others who make pure-pendulum strokes reads like a who’s who of great putters including Bob Charles Greg Norman Dave Stockton Andy North Loren Roberts and Phil Mickelson (Figure 3.5.13). Having now looked at these great putters and seeing how simple their strokes are doesn’t it make you want to start putting that way? If it does you are reading the right book because my Putting Bible is mostly about why what and how to do it!

Methods of Putting 51

Back to what 1 said at the beginning of this chapter: Simpler is better. Because the mechanics of a pendulum motion get the job done and because they are the simplest then they must be the best. And they are the best because they are easier to learn and master than any of the more complex motions.

But be careful because there is not just one single pendulum motion. A pendulum stroke can be swung down the line around the body or across the line. It can be swung with the face rotating or with the face kept square. It can be pushed or pulled or allowed to swing in a consistent natural rhythm.

The best of all these is the simplest of the simple the pure-in-line vertically swinging face-always-square natural-rhythm pendulum. It is the way to go if you want to putt your most consistently and most successfully.

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

Notice that the left elbow is still locked at this point. The elbow is just crossing the imaginary line that you have created between your eyes and your belly button. Remember, try to stop your elbow at this point. This is the point where your wrists will start to flip through the ball.Also notice the angle between the left arm and the club shaft is almost the same as it was at setup.
