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:

This should convince you that even with the perfect path poor face angle at the moment of impact will start your putts off-line big-time.

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

Extract from the book:

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.

If you are having a hard time believing this run the following test for yourself. As shown in Figure 4.8.2 aim the edge of a heavy piece of wood to the left edge of a target. Place a ball just outside the wood about the distance from the heel of the

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 87 putter to the sweetspot and hold the putterface open to a 45-degree angle to the target with a piece of cardboard (cut the cardboard with equal-length sides A and B at right angles then cut side C between the end points as shown in the inset). Using both hands to hold the face open at that angle and keeping the heel against the wood slide the putter toward the target to simulate a putting stroke (shown from right to left in figure). If you keep the face 45 degrees open the ball will start to the right almost perpendicular to the open face (actually 45 degrees times .83 = 37 degrees) no matter how hard you hit it.

This should convince you that even with the perfect path poor face angle at the moment of impact will start your putts off-line big-time.

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.

Focus on using your spine as your axis now. Turn both shoulders and sides directly around your spine. Keep your left arm locked, and your left wrist locked. Although difficult to see from this camera-angle, the triangle is still perfectly in tact.
