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:

Face Your Special Problems 355 uphill too high but then breaks too much because it is rolling more slowly than planned and will still find the hole (as shown on the left).

Make sure you understand what I’m saying here. Most golfers address these tough little putts normally then hit some solid some off the heel and some off the toe always missing the ones they hit on the downhill side of the sweetspot. My advice is to cheat by an eighth of an inch toward the uphill side of the sweetspot at address then make your normal stroke trying to hit it there. If you do you’re fine; if you mis-hit slightly in either direction you’re still fine because a small miss farther toward the uphill side of the putterface will still go in (you missed the sweetspot by perhaps a quarter-inch which you can get away with on short pulls). If your stroke missed in the downhill direction you cheated away from it so you’ll actually hit the sweetspot and the putt will go into the center of the hole. Accomplish cheating by first addressing your putt normally then move slightly closer to your ball when you want to cheat toward the heel slightly farther away when you want to cheat toward the toe. And when I say move “slightly ” I mean only an

356 Face Your Special Problems eighth of an inch. (This is important. Don’t overdo this as the energy transferred to your putt will start to drop off drastically if you move too far causing impact too far away from the sweetspot.) Figure 14.6.3 shows how much I recommend to cheat in your address position of putterface to ball.

Please note: I wrote this section for lefties to make sure you right-handers were paying attention. If you are right-handed or putt right-handed reverse the heel and toe references in Figures 14.6.1 and 14.6.2 above (if this bothers you it may help you appreciate more what left-handed golfers face their entire lives constantly being told to “reverse for left-handers”).

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

Extract from the book:

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.

I know it took a little time to get through all the possible strokes from the hardest to the easiest. But it is important that you understand the big picture of putting. It will help if you want to putt your best because at some point in your putting practice you’re going to doubt that what you’re doing is right that what you’re doing is working. And that’s when you’re going to fall back on the knowledge imparted here that to putt your best you must commit to the simplest stroke that will work for you and then believe in it. Come hell or high water – or missing 20 putts in a row – you must believe in the stroke you have committed to and stay with it until you groove it and own it. Only then can you ever hope to move toward achieving your personal optimum putting performances.

So let ‘s get into the putting methods techniques and systems most golfers use find out which is best for you and learn how to incorporate them mold them refine them and fit them into a system that will allow you to improve and then optimize your ability to putt.

THE FIFTEEN BUILDING BLOCKS OF PUTTING

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics

4.1 First Some Definitions In this and the next three chapters I will discuss the 15 building blocks of putting what they are how they work and what they mean to your ability to roll your puns into the hole. First I’ll list them all here (Figure 4.1.1) then define a few terms to enable us to keep our communications straight. Then I ‘ll jump in by detailing the seven blocks that deal with putting stroke mechanics.

Please start with the three pictures below. Understand that the point of these pictures is to get your arms and chest connected. You should understand the feeling of “being connected” before you try to incorporate this critical step into your golf swing. If you hold the club straight out in front of you, there will be a triangle formed between your arms and chest. Just focus on keeping the triangle between your arms and chest fixed. Just move your arms with your chest. When your chest stops rotating, your arms also stop. Please see the three pictures below and try it out. Turn to your right, then back around to your left, keeping the triangle between your arms and chest constant at all times.
