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:

Improve Your Stroke Mechanics 279 find themselves missing every putt to the right or left with their new solid stroke (because they practiced carelessly) and you don’t want that.

The program we recommend has worked for almost every golfer we’ve given it to without creating other problems in the process. It involves finding and marking your putter sweetspot documenting your improvement progress and maintaining a good stroke path while you improve your impact pattern.

If your putter has a mark on its top line don’t assume that is where you should address and strike your putts. Many manufacturers place those marks where they look good but don’t do the engineering and quality control necessary to balance the putter weight so the sweetspot is really there.

Finding your putter’s true sweetspot is one of the easiest chores in golf. The mistake to avoid is letting it hang vertically while you are doing it (Figure 12.3.1). You must hold the grip in your fingers so the shaft is angled to the ground the same way it is when you putt with it. This is key because it keeps the putter properly balanced to the way you actually use it. Then tap-tap-tap across the face with a hard metal object such as a car key. When tapping away from the sweetspot the putterhead will wobble and you’ll feel the vibrations in your fingers. There will be only one spot along the horizontal axis of the putterface that will produce zero wobble and the vibrations are minimized. That is your putter’s sweetspot.

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

Extract from the book:

The negatives of putting with a long putter are learning to roll putts the right distance (it requires learning new feel and touch for distance) and occasional instability in windy conditions. However both problems can be handled with a little practice leading me to believe they aren’t inherent problems but caused by a lack of experience.

50 Methods of Putting

The Pure Pendulum Stroke And that brings us to the simplest easiest most repeatable most reliable and therefore best way to putt – the pure no-hit pendulum stroke. By this I mean a putter swinging in rhythm with the arms and hands with no power input from the hands and wrists whatsoever. If the pendulum is pure and swings down the line with no face rotation it is as simple a motion as can be made under the Rules of Golf. And that’s why it is the method I recommend most often to my students. And I recommend it to you.

To see it in use watch George Archer on the Senior PGA Tour who has produced the purest and best pendulum stroke for the longest period of time of anyone I’ve ever seen (Figure 3.5.12). Over a 20-year period playing against Nicklaus Palmer Player Watson Crenshaw Ballesteros Faldo and Norman Archer holed a higher percentage of his putts than all the rest.

The list of others who make pure-pendulum strokes reads like a who’s who of great putters including Bob Charles Greg Norman Dave Stockton Andy North Loren Roberts and Phil Mickelson (Figure 3.5.13). Having now looked at these great putters and seeing how simple their strokes are doesn’t it make you want to start putting that way? If it does you are reading the right book because my Putting Bible is mostly about why what and how to do it!

Back to what 1 said at the beginning of this chapter: Simpler is better. Because the mechanics of a pendulum motion get the job done and because they are the simplest then they must be the best. And they are the best because they are easier to learn and master than any of the more complex motions.

Golf Swing Tips

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

Extract from the book:

Golf Tuition Wareham Golf Club

The chest and shoulders shouldn’t be turning, unless your arms are turning with them. In other words, you want to start your swing with a shoulder turn, but your arms should start swinging at EXACTLY the same time. They are an extension. They are connected. Furthermore, your arms shouldn’t be swinging unless your chest is rotating. Don’t start swinging your arms without starting the shoulder turn. They are connected. Your left elbow remains locked throughout the entire swing. When you complete your shoulder turn, your arms should stop as well. The goal will be to have your left arm exactly parallel to the ground. Your elbow is still locked. When it gets there…STOP. Do not continue to swing your arms.
