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 club has around 600 members in total across all sections, and of these about 40 are Category One players, which speaks volumes about the standard of player the course attracts. At 6231 yards, it is not a long course, however, it does offer a challenging test of golf, requiring accurate shots in order to score well. Thanks to its excellent drainage, the course is rarely closed due to rain, temporary greens are also seldom used unless there’s an early morning frost.

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

Extract from the book:

For a stable stroke to be consistent (especially under pressure) it must accelerate through impact without the hands providing acceleration. It took me a few years to find a way to teach this before I realized that a smooth pendulum stroke moving at a consistent rhythm accelerates (and is stable) to the midpoint of its swing (that’s the physics of pendulums). So when you create a perfect pendulum stroke motion at your natural body rhythm and contact the ball slightly before the halfway point of that stroke you’ve naturally produced stability through impact. This means that if you centered your stroke motion ahead of the ball your follow-through will be longer than your backswing and acceleration through impact will he assured. And as long as your follow-through is longer than your backswing and your rhythm is smooth your putter will always be stable at impact as shown in Figure 12.2.1. (You ‘ ll still make a slight upward strike by positioning the ball just inside the instep of your lead foot so it is ahead of the bottom of your swing arc.)

I mprove Your Stroke Mechanics 277

Knowing that you should always putt with a stable stroke motion and actually doing it are two very different things. I want to show you how to learn to practice making stable swings so stability will become a habit and stay with you when you go to the course. To accomplish this I first want you to learn three stable “reference” strokes (these will become your 6-inch 12-inch and 18-inch reference back-swing strokes). Don’t worry about what these strokes do how they work or what they are for. Just learn to make them and I’ll explain them later. You need some thin strips of foam rubber that will fit across the width of your Putting Track and some tape to attach the foam strips temporarily to the track. Don’t use a ball.

Step 1. Stick two pieces of foam rubber across the side rails of the track one each at 12 inches behind and 14 inches ahead of the ball spot (Figure 12.2.2). Step 2. Place a dot sticker in the track between the black diamonds on the rails where the ball would normally be.

Step 3. With your metronome beeping at your natural body rhythm address the dot as if it were a hall. Now execute your ritual and stroke to the beat just as if you were putting. Make sure you touch the putter shaft to each piece of foam back then through on a beat.

Step 4. Hold your finish (shaft against forward foam) for five beats.

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

Extract from the book:

Taking a Trip

Stick with me here as I equate the skills of putting touch feel and green-reading on the golf course to what you do when taking a Thanksgiving drive to your parents’ house. First to have a nice trip you need to know how many miles you have to drive and how much of the trip is mountain driving. With that knowledge you can figure out how much gas you need to make it there. This is like having touch in putting which is knowing how long the putt is so you can then figure out how much power will be required in your stroke to get the ball to the hole.

And you’d better know how much gas you need before starting the trip because there are no filling stations (putting stroke adjustments) along the way (after you hit the ball).

Five Nonphysical Building Blocks: Touch Feel Attitude Routine and Ritual 113

Once you know how much gas you need then you have to figure out how hard to step on the gas pedal and when to step on the brakes as you drive on your Thanksgiving trip (something you figure out after you are into the trip) to negotiate the stops and turns in the road along the way. This “knowing how to drive” is analogous to knowing how to feel the proper stroke in putting where you must know in your mind’s eye the required size of the swing (or hardness of the hit) as well as how it will look and feel to impart the power which will provide the proper energy and speed of roll required. So touch is knowing how long the trip is and how much power it will require and feel is knowing how to apply the power (how to drive) to get you there.

Of course good touch and feel also require a proper read of the green knowing what will happen to your putt as it rolls. Think of green-reading as having a good road map for your journey. A good map or good directions can make the trip easy but a bad map with poor directions can turn the simplest trip into a nightmare.

So you need a map enough gas and the knowledge of how hard to step on the gas pedal along the way. You need all these things in concert to have a good trip. And you need good feel touch and green-reading skills also working together to putt well. Leave one out or do one poorly and it will he the same as losing your way on your Thanksgiving trip. Feel touch and green-reading are separate skills essentially different in nature yet each needs to be developed to provide the best result. And in case I ‘ve confused you that result is to roll the ball into the hole.

Notice that the left elbow is still locked at this point. The elbow is just crossing the imaginary line that you have created between your eyes and your belly button. Remember, try to stop your elbow at this point. This is the point where your wrists will start to flip through the ball.Also notice the angle between the left arm and the club shaft is almost the same as it was at setup.
