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:

Jack replied “No I didn’t. But I believed I would. That’s no different than for all the other putts I hit today and every other day though. I don’t putt until I think I’m ready to make it. Do you? And if you don’t then why the hell do you putt it?”

That s classic Jack and dead on target. If you don’ t have a clear idea of the feel and touch of the stroke needed to make the putt then you aren’t ready to putt. It sounds simple and obvious but of the thousands of golfers I ‘ve taught putting to very few stand over the ball fully believing in their ability to hole the putt. Most golfers are thinking about their stroke mechanics thinking negative thoughts about missing or three-putting or doubting their aim. Is it any wonder they miss? Not to me.

5.9 Preparation: The Routine

To get you over any negative or nonproductive thinking and provide a proactive way to approach your putting you should establish both a routine and a ritual for every putt you face. And by every putt 1 mean every one in practice and in play for the rest of your career.

Routine and ritual are not synonymous but two very different things. Both are important to your putting. First 1 ‘ 11 deal with your routine which prepares you to putt.

Routine is the sequence of actions you perform in preparing to execute your stroke. It starts after you read the green and ends just before you start your ritual (which begins just before you actually make the stroke).

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

Extract from the book:

The True Roller

Years ago I created the True Roller a simple ramp device to control the direction and speed of simulated putts (a 1978 photo is shown below). It turns out to be one of the most useful devices I’ve come up with for rolling balls and testing on the greens.

The first True Roller was eight feet long and very cumbersome but later versions have included laser-aiming attachments refined ball-release mechanisms and a level to ensure that the release ramp is always perfectly vertical and releasing balls in a straight line (Figure 2.6.4). The original intent of the True Roller was to simulate putts near the end of their rolls because the initial release of a ball differed from the initial roll of the putted balls (putts start out slightly lofted and sliding along the grass whereas the ball is already rolling as it leaves the True Roller). However after we tested and calibrated the True Roller to simulate putts we found no essential differences in putting results between balls putted versus those released from the True Roller.

You will see many balls and test results from balls rolled from the True Roller in this book. Remember that the True Roller is simply starting each ball in a given direction at the given speed. And that is what putting is all about.

Look next at the top of Figure 2.6.5 which shows how far the same five balls will roll on an uphill putt (released from the True Roller each with the same energy as before). The uphill putts stop closer together (the distance between the longest and shortest balls is 7.5 feet) indicating that on uphill putts balls tend to roll closer to the same distance. This means the roll of an uphill putt is less sensitive to the length of the stroke than putts on a level surface. The lesson is that even if you don’t hit all of your uphill putts the right speed be sure to get them past the hole.

That gives them a chance to go in and the longest ones will probably stop near enough to the hole to leave no-brainers coming back.

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

Here is a view from the front. The goal of this photo is to show that there is no lateral movement. Simply rotating your right shoulder around your spine.*Please note that you should NOT be cocking your wrists at the end of your backswing. While this may add a bit of power, it will totally throw off your timing. The results of a wrist cock are slices, hooks, fat shots, etc.
