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:

246 Establish Your Practice Framework

You Must Commit

So you have a putter with the lie angle and shaft length that fit your posture. And you like how it looks and feels at impact. Now before you begin an improvement program you must make a promise to yourself. You must commit to using that putter and no other for at least six months.

That’s right. I want you to stick with this putter for at least the first six months that you start working seriously on any part of your putting especially stroke mechanics. You’re going to go through a lot of changes as your brain receives the feedback from your improving knowledge and stroke and I don’t want it confused with anything that doesn’t really matter. So pick a putter get it fit (professionally is always best) and promise to stay with it through thick and thin as you learn to putt with it.

The Long Putter

How do you know whether or not you’d putt better with a long-shafted putter (Figure 11.6.4)? Give one a try and not for just two or three putts. Work with one for several half-hour sessions. The long putter offers several advantages over ones of standard length: There’s no breakdown of the wrist joint during the stroke and there’s no rotating of the forearms so golfers are less likely to try controlling the putterface.

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

Extract from the book:

• Finish your practice with putts derstandable detail in later chapters) I’ve thrown a of less than six feet focusing fair amount of information at you and we have yet only on rolling them into the to even begin examining the putting stroke. How- cup at a firm brisk pace. ever please don’t be discouraged about the com plexity of putting or the confusion you might be feeling right now. You need to understand the realities of putting so you’ll be more tolerant when unexplained things happen to you on the greens. You need to believe – no you need to know – that there is no net luck in putting no matter how your putts seem to be rolling bouncing or deflecting that day.

Once you understand the reality of the problems of the game and the often cruel statistical nature of its results you will be better prepared to proceed with your learning program which will lead to your improved putting. Always remain alert to the importance of immediate accurate reliable feedback and what it can do for your practice and on-course putting. So take heart and realize your better scores will come from more areas than simply improving your stroke mechanics. There’s much more to good putting than that physical stroke motion of yours.

Problems on the Greens 33

There are many different ways for golfers to putt. Having said that it does not mean that I’m advocating all or any of these methods. But it’s important that you are aware of the choices a golfer has and even a few he doesn’t unless he doesn’t care about the Rules of Golf (which I think you must if you’re going to he serious about this game).

The old adage “different strokes for different folks” is very meaningful because some putting strokes work better than others for certain players while no one stroke works perfectly for everyone. While no strokes even perfect ones make all their putts some really awful strokes do make some putts. And sometimes the differences between good and bad strokes are very difficult to measure or see. But believe me the differences are there.

Before I discuss some of the many methods you could employ let me pass on to you the one thought the one axiom that governs all my theories on putting. It is this: Simpler is better. You’ll find research test results in many different disciplines that validate this conclusion. It is certainly true in almost all of sports. Why? Because regardless of your level of talent the less you give yourself to do (and still get the job done) the more consistently you can learn to do it. Whereas the more compensations that must he made in your putting stroke the more difficult it will be to repeat in such a way that it actually makes your putts. The more complex a putting stroke (that is the more compensations that must be made to make it effective) the more uncertain (or inconsistent) its results by any golfer regardless of skill level.

All this may sound routine and you may have heard it many times before but that doesn’t mean it isn’t true. And more important that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be taken seriously. So there’s no question about it: In putting simpler is better.

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

Here is a picture at full speed. The wrists have completed their roll through the ball. The left elbow is close to the body, and about ready to break, allowing for follow through.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.
