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:

If you recently installed a new grip on your putter or started using a new “magic wand ” it could be that the grip is twisted even the tiniest little bit from what you were used to. I’ve seen this happen countless times over the years. The new grip looks right and feels right; the new putter should be perfect. But the back of your lead hand has a relationship with your putterface (see Chapter 12 for details) and the more you practice and groove your stroke mechanics the more repeatable that relationship becomes. A difference of just one degree from the way the flat of your grip was previously aligned to your putterface will cause the ball to miss on a dead-straight putt from six feet even if you make a perfect stroke

358 Face Your Special Problems with your hands in the perfect position through impact and use a perfectly balanced ball.

So if you have suddenly gone from good to bad on short putts (you’ll never notice it on long putts because you don’t make them often enough to tell the difference in a one- or two-degree starting-line error) check your new grip or the grip on that new putter. It ‘s always possible that your old grip wasn ‘t straight and the new one is so you’ll have to start a new relationship with it.

14.8 Your Preferred Break

If you have a preferred break direction (right-to-left or left-to-right) on makable putts in the 10- to 20-foot range – and many golfers do – there is a reason. It’s probably because you have a bias in your ability to aim your putter. (If you have a preferred break on short putts it could he due to such an aim bias explained below or to the effects detailed in section 14.6 above caused by hitting your putts consistently toward the heel or toe of your putter. If you think it’s the latter reread Chapter 12 and learn to groove your impact pattern on the sweetspot.)

If your tendency is to aim farther than you intend to the right (what I call a “right aim-error”) it effectively increases the amount of break you’re playing on a right-to-left-breaking putt. That may actually help you because as you now know most golfers underread the true break. That little extra aim-error maybe enough to get you closer (after compensations) to playing 100 percent of the true break.

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

Extract from the book:

The True Roller

Years ago I created the True Roller a simple ramp device to control the direction and speed of simulated putts (a 1978 photo is shown below). It turns out to be one of the most useful devices I’ve come up with for rolling balls and testing on the greens.

The first True Roller was eight feet long and very cumbersome but later versions have included laser-aiming attachments refined ball-release mechanisms and a level to ensure that the release ramp is always perfectly vertical and releasing balls in a straight line (Figure 2.6.4). The original intent of the True Roller was to simulate putts near the end of their rolls because the initial release of a ball differed from the initial roll of the putted balls (putts start out slightly lofted and sliding along the grass whereas the ball is already rolling as it leaves the True Roller). However after we tested and calibrated the True Roller to simulate putts we found no essential differences in putting results between balls putted versus those released from the True Roller.

You will see many balls and test results from balls rolled from the True Roller in this book. Remember that the True Roller is simply starting each ball in a given direction at the given speed. And that is what putting is all about.

Look next at the top of Figure 2.6.5 which shows how far the same five balls will roll on an uphill putt (released from the True Roller each with the same energy as before). The uphill putts stop closer together (the distance between the longest and shortest balls is 7.5 feet) indicating that on uphill putts balls tend to roll closer to the same distance. This means the roll of an uphill putt is less sensitive to the length of the stroke than putts on a level surface. The lesson is that even if you don’t hit all of your uphill putts the right speed be sure to get them past the hole.

That gives them a chance to go in and the longest ones will probably stop near enough to the hole to leave no-brainers coming back.

Now, I’ll take you into the follow-through. This will be simple. Basically just keep turning around your spine. If you have flipped your wrists correctly, you won’t have to bother too much with the follow through. However, there is a basic position that you should be in when you finish the swing. You should be facing the target, and your right and left forearms should be crossed. Your right forearm should be closest to you, and the club should be out towards left field.
