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?

This establishes your Aimline for the putt. Now you are ready to begin your preshot routine.

Here’s a little more detail on each of these steps:

In step 1 always be sure to stay more than six feet from the hole to avoid creat ing any fresh footprints that you might have to putt through later. Try to position your body directly below (on the downhill side of) the hole: This is easy when the green slopes perceptibly more difficult on nearly level greens. In that case try to imagine the direction water flowing out of the hole would move (Figure 13.4.13). Water always flows downhill.

In step 2 move directly behind the hole on the ball-hole line and imagine what would happen to a ball rolled from the True Roller aimed straight at the hole. If your mind’s eye sees such a putt missing below the hole that verifies your subconscious belief in the downhill direction determined in step 1. This second step should take no longer than 3 or 4 seconds.

In step 3 walk below the ball-hole line (never above where your putt might hit your fresh footprints) to a spot behind the ball and stand on the extension of the ball-hole line. Again imagine rolling a ball straight at the hole from the True Roller and let your mind’s eye reconfirm that such a putt would miss below the hole. If you still believe the ball will break in the same direction you should be comfortable about the direction of the break and it will have taken you no more

Physical and Mental Factors

4.10 Ball Position Posture and Flow-Lines

In sections 4.4 through 4.9 the factors discussed are the building blocks involved with the swinging action of your putting stroke mechanics. From here on in this chapter the factors I’ll explain will be ones relating to your body mind and equipment. While all of these are less familiar and less popular to work on than the other fundamentals of stroke mechanics that doesn’t mean they won’t be important to your success on the greens.

For example say you employ a very unusual putting posture but it’s one you like and lets you execute a perfect stroke consistently and repeatedly. Then I say it’s absolutely acceptable. If it works and you like it it’s okay with me no matter how odd or unconventional it seems. However if anything about your unusual posture adversely affects one or more of the fundamentals of stroke mechanics then you should change it. So all of the following are important only in how they influence your stroke.

Ball Position

Any putting stroke that swings in an arc suspended from somewhere around your sternum (or some other spot between your shoulders) will have a bottom to its arc a low point a place where the sole of the club is closest to the ground. I have found that the best place to position the ball in your stance is approximately two inches ahead of this bottom point. At this spot you have the best chance of striking the ball on an ever-so-slight upward arc as your putter comes up from its lowest point (Figure 4.10.1). Striking the ball slightly on the upswing gets putts rolling on top of the grass without lofting them too high which produces bounce or hitting them down into the surface of the green so they squirt off to the right or left.

Of course where your putter contacts the ball also depends on the effective loft of the putterface at the moment of impact. In Figure 4.10.2 the center ball is being struck slightly on the upswing by a putter with a small amount of loft so it starts on top of the grass with almost no spin. This is the ideal situation.

Start your backswing. Focus on keeping your back straight, and your chest out. To help you swing directly around your spine, try focusing on rotating your right shoulder back and around your spine. If you focus on the right shoulder, your left shoulder will be in the correct position automatically. Simple. Keep your left elbow locked.
