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:

Develop Your Artistic Senses (Feel Touch Green-Reading) 327

It ‘s like any other problem in life: If you don’t admit that you have it you deny yourself the opportunity to eliminate it and the benefits of that elimination (in this case making more putts). Dealing honestly with reality is the first step to making it easier to see the true break as you stand over your putts examining the greens.

Two Green-Reading Problems

First let me clearly define the situation most golfers are in so there can be no misunderstanding. Based on my test data three circumstances are true:

As you can imagine poor green-reading is not something that can be fixed easily. As the three circumstances above now exist they self-perpetuate errors and compensations. (Hey it’s taken more than 400 years to even recognize that there is a problem!) And here ‘s the important fact to remember: Green-reading isn ‘t one problem it ‘s two problems:

You can read all the detail in Chapter 7 but the net effect of the two problems is that the compensations don’t quite make up for the full amount of underread. So most golfers today miss about 85 percent of their putts below the hole without realizing either that such a high percentage miss to the low side or why any one putt misses (they usually blame some mechanical error such as pulling the putt pushing the putt or not hitting it solidly). Then yours truly comes along and points out the mistake they are making. And what happens? Some of them try to correct the situation by solving problem 1 so they play more break miss high get confused and ultimately putt no better and possibly even worse. Or they work on problem 2 try putting accurately (without compensations) on the line they’ve read miss everything low and ultimately putt worse. The result is that in neither case do golfers learn to read the true break or start putting better. They don’t understand how to solve the problems and can’t stand the negative results when they try to.

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

Extract from the book:

A very important consideration is the putterface angle which we define as the angle between the perpendicular to your putterface and your Aimline (left side

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 59

When your face angle is pointing left of your Aimline it is closed (again for right-handed golfers). The “open” and “closed” terminology reverses for lefthanders. You must understand and remember that your putterface angle and putter path arc completely independent of each other.

Impact Point

Your impact point refers to the center of the contact area between your ball and putter on the putterface (Figure 4.2.3). For each and every putt there is one unique impact point which sometimes centers on a single dimple but more often several dimples plus an edge of one or more dimples. After many putts your many impact points will form your impact pattern (Figure 4.2.4) which is very important to the success of your putting. Aim path face angle and impact pattern are four of the 15 building blocks fundamental to your putting stroke mechanics. They describe and define how you move your putterhead and how your putterhead moves through the impact zone determines how well you roll your ball relative to your Aimline.
