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?

480 acre Wilderness Park is acquired for $1,244.81 per acre ($600,000). Initial plans call for a possible 9-hole public golf course. The idea of a 9-hole golf course is not pursued for the Wilderness Park. Brazosport Recreation Review, compiled by the Texas Agricultural Extension Service, surveys area residents as to their recreational needs and priorities. Lake Jackson citizens list a public golf course as their 5th highest priority….

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

Extract from the book:

236 Establish Your Practice Framework

Forearms Are Number Two

The second most important flow-line is that of your forearms. The usual error is to align it too far to the left (Figure 11.5.7). Many right-handed golfers set their forearms this way because it’s the instinctive position for those using the conventional “right-hand-low (below)” putter grip. With their forearm flow-line pointing left most golfers cut across their putts (it’s the natural flow direction) and

Establish Your Practice Framework 237 compensate by opening their putterfaces through impact. To align your forearm flow-line parallel to your Aimline either tuck your right elbow into your body or use the left-hand-low putting grip (both shown in Figure 11.5.8).

Eyes Are Number Three

When you stand behind your ball and judge the distance of the putt (both when green-reading and making your preliminary stroke as part of your routine) keep your eye flow-line horizontal to the ground. This is called the binocular position because both eyes are working together and feeding a properly triangulated picture of the putt distance to your brain. This is the position from which you can best estimate distance.

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

Extract from the book:

Do great putters rotate their putterfaces or do they keep them square through impact?

Because I have advocated the pure-in-line-square (pils) stroke for many years I have often heard from both playing and teaching professionals “But Jack Nicklaus Loren Roberts George Archer Dave Stockton and Ben Crenshaw rotate (screen-door) their putters through impact. Just look at this photograph. See you can see the putterface rotating!”

Then they show me a photo like Figure 4.7.3. Now I want to show you something. Look at the photographs in Figure 4.7.4. On the left you see Perfy my putting robot making a pure-in-line-square stroke with his hands vertically under his shoulders. In the center photograph the perpendicular gridlines show that his putterface stays perfectly square all the way down the line and the right side of the figure shows an incoming view of the same stroke (with different lines to show how perfectly on-line his stroke stays). Okay? You agree Perfy makes a pils stroke from this hands-under-shoulders (vertical pendulum) set-up?

In Figure 4.7.5 I put the camera perfectly face-on to Perfy as he makes the same pils stroke but this time I moved in a little closer and removed the gridlines to emphasize the effect. Now doesn’t that putterface look like it’s rotating screen-dooring through impact? I promise you it is not! Perfy’s swing was no different; it’s only the appearance (an optical illusion) that has changed.

My point is great putters have their putterfaces square to their Aimlines through impact what you see in photographs on TV or in person notwithstanding. That’s one of the reasons they putt so well. If the camera is not on-line or if gridlines aren’t present to reference your vision you can’t believe what you see because of the optical illusions. Even standing face-on watching a player putt at a tournament your eyes (and those of playing and teaching pros) deceive you in the same way. You’ve got to get your eyes (or the camera) either on-line or vertically above a swing motion to see if it’s on-line and rotating or not (as in Figure 4.7.2 where you can accurately compare the rotation of screen-door vs. pits stroke motions).

82 The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics it’s important to realize that the putter shaft is not the pendulum of the stroke and the lie of the putter shaft does not affect the path of your stroke unless it makes you move your hands. Figure 4.7.6 shows the path of a vertical pendulum stroke with two different putters with different shaft angles: You can see that both swing in a pure-in-line-square motion all the way.

Everyone Can Swing On-Line and Square

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

Now, you should be standing up straight, with your chest out, and your shoulders back. Your arms should be out in front of you, your elbows locked, and your wrists level with the height of your waist, while holding the club parallel to the ground. Next, bend over AT THE HIPS until the club touches the ground. Move towards or away from the ball according to where the club touches the ground. After some practice, you will be able to judge the distance well enough so that you don’t have to move around to get into position. Keep your chest out and straight while bending over at the hips. It is impossible to overstate the importance of this. You should not be bending with the back at all to reach down to the ball; you should be bending AT THE HIPS. This is one of the most common mistakes made by amateur golfers. If you look at any professional golfer on television, they will ALWAYS have a straight back, and they will ALWAYS bend at the waist to get to the ball. You will feel like your “seat” is protruding backwards more than usual. That is what we want here. Also, it’s okay if the toe of your club is not flush with the ground. It’s should be that way, especially for the long irons.
