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?

CHAPTER 12

Improve Your Stroke Mechanics

12.1 Refine Your Path

At last we are ready to work on your stroke mechanics. And work on them we must for they are what cause the ball to move. But instead of heading to the practice green as most golfers do – to putt for hours hoping something good will hap-pen – you now know there are 15 ways (the 15 building blocks) to improve your putting and grooving your stroke path is just one of them. Even more important you know the stroke path you want to groove (pure-in-line) and you are committed to grooving it within a system of feedback rhythm flow lines routine and a ritual that won’t let practicing this one area ruin some other aspect of your putting. You even believe that once you learn this path you will be able to execute it under pressure on the golf course. Good because believing in what you are doing is key to making it happen. So let’s get to it.

I’ve already explained why the pure-in-line-square (pils) stroke (Figure 12.1.1) is the simplest and best. So grooving a perfect pils stroke would be ideal but it should not be your goal. Because you are human it will be impossible for you to be perfect every time. Your stroke will sometimes wobble and swing off-line. You’re going to have less-than-perfect days. But that should not deter you. You can groove an almost perfect pils stroke which you’ll execute almost all of the time and that is very good. With an almost perfect stroke you’ll almost make all of your putts which is what the great putters do.

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

Extract from the book:

As for your hip knee and feet flow-lines there is no reason I know of to have them aligned in any direction other than the intended flow direction of your putts. Some golfers tell me they see the line better when they stand open to their putts but when I test how well they are seeing the line it is usually pretty poorly. Look at Figure 4.10.12 and decide for yourself: Which setup do you think will produce better and more consistent putter flow down the Aimline?

The Stance

I am a strong believer in taking a narrow stance when chipping or pitching onto the green because that encourages golfers to use their lower bodies to maintain the rhythm of their swings.

And those arc the same reasons I strongly discourage a narrow stance for putting. A narrow stance makes it too easy for the golfer to move and rotate the lower body. Furthermore a narrow stance isn’t stable enough to resist being pushed around in the wind.

To establish a stable base for your stroke take a stance width that is at least as wide as your shoulders (Figure 4.10.13) as measured from the centerline of your

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 103 shoes to the center of each shoulder. Even wider stances are okay but narrower is not.

If stability continues to be a problem you might borrow something from Arnold Palmer who established a very solid base for his putting stroke by standing knock-kneed (Figure 4.10.14). With his knees turned in Arnold absolutely could not move his lower body. However most golfers I suggest this to seem embarrassed to use it which is too had because it works.

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.
