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?

The golf course opened in 1990, followed by the club house in March 1991. The facilities include an 18 hole, well drained, gently undulating, parkland golf course, with a mix of evergreen and deciduous trees and several small streams and ditches. The course is 6949 yards from the white tees with a par of 73. The course from the yellow tees is 6250 yards with a par of 72 and a scratch score of 70. There is a 20-acre practice area.

Dave Pelz’s Putting Bible – golf’s least understood skill.

Extract from the book:

Establish Your Practice Framework 239 shoulder alignment so there’s a much greater chance of success keeping their shoulders and forearms in good positions if the lower body also is square to the Aimline.

A final word on flow-lines. Most golfers don’t have much trouble setting them properly parallel to the Aimline on straight putts once they learn how and why to do it. Without this instruction however they aim their flow-lines in many different directions (Figure 11.5.11). This causes great difficulty when it comes to breaking putts where they have no idea of where to align themselves. You can make all alignment simple by always forgetting about everything during setup except the Aimline: Concentrate on first setting up to it then putting along it (Figure 11.5.12). This is just one more reason for going through the steps outlined in previous chapters (and the ones to follow) to help you find the perfect Aimline on every putt.

Stance and Ball Position The perfect putting stance assuming everything else is normal is to set your feet shoulder-width apart. (In section 4.10 I explain that stance width is measured from the center of your feet and the center of your shoulders: Wider than this is okay but sometimes a little uncomfortable; narrower usually is not as stable.)

Once you’re standing properly the ball should be positioned just ahead of the bottom of the stroke arc so it will be launched only slightly upward at impact (Figure 11.5.13). For most golfers this puts perfect ball position about an inch

(Figure 11.5.14) and – this is important (as you’ ll see in section 11.7 below) – vertically under your eye flow-line. An easy way to see and measure this position is to practice with a small mirror on a flat floor (it helps to place a thin piece of col ored tape down the middle of the mirror to represent the Aimline). Once you see that your stance is perfect relative to the Aimline and that your eyes are vertically above the Aimline measure the distance between your toe line and the inside edge of the ball. This distance as shown in Figure 11.5.15 is usually about the length of

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

Extract from the book:

But there’s yet another problem with forearm rotation: it feels natural. Even Tour professionals don’t realize they’re doing it and when I tell them to stop they usually say “What do you mean I’m not rotating my arms! ” But of course they are. And like the pros most golfers don’ t mean to do it and if you ask them don’t think they are. But they are and you probably are too. Which is too bad because forearm rotation makes putting more difficult more inconsistent and less effective.

You’ll have to wait until Chapter 13 to learn how to stop rotating your forearms. For now however make a mental note that you will stop making this destructive motion. It will be one of your challenges in improving your putting and a crucial one.

Body Power

In the previous chapter I talked about body putting something rarely seen among the pros because it’s a bad thing to do. Your body is large and the big muscles of the chest back and legs are strong particularly when compared to the small amounts of power needed to roll a ball on the fast surface of a putting green. Still many golfers put too much of their body into the stroke rotating the lower body sliding the lower body toward the hole or moving the upper body away from the hole (Figure 4.5.2). All these motions are unintentional (at least I hope so) but they still produce unwanted power and directional instability.

For example I estimate that for every inch the body moves toward the target during the putting stroke the ball moves an additional foot on the green. And rotating the lower body not only adds power it also causes the putterface to rotate from open to closed.

Putting is a game in which delicate feel and touch create exactly the right speed and break of your putts. When you’re trying to be precise body power causes nothing but trouble.

School students turn (top) slide (middle) and reverse (bottom) their bodies during their putting stroke motions.
