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:

However set his shoulders square to his Aimline place the ball exactly at the sweetspot of his putter in his address position and give him the proper-length backswing and Perfy can putt as well as any man woman or child alive. In fact he can putt better than any man woman or child.

What I’m trying to do is teach you how to putt as much like Perfy as humanly possible (and “humanly” is key here because you’ll never putt that well at least not time after time after time which Perfy is capable of doing). And in teaching you the key factors of this kind of putting you will be able to become your own teacher watching and monitoring your progress keeping yourself moving forward spotting and correcting mistakes before they become too serious – doing for yourself the things a good teacher would do.

What I’m not trying to do is take all the challenge out of the game and ruin golf. I want to help you learn to putt better to make more putts and to enjoy your golf more by improving your putting skills. If you realize that the pendulum motion illustrated by Perfy is the simplest way to putt mechanically and that the pendulum rhythm is also the greatest (and simplest) rhythm concept in golf then you should he willing to give these concepts a try. Once you have determined your own best body-rhythm cadence and have worked your preputt ritual into that cadence you’ll find yourself automatically staying in rhythm as you execute your real stroke. And there is nothing that will allow you to putt better than staying in this rhythmic repeatable thinking-free system.

Rhythm and Repetition Eliminate Thinking

Watch any good athlete and even more than the skill you can’t help but notice the same attribute over and over: rhythm. It may seem natural – and in some cases I think it is – but it is something they continually must work on (repeat) and something that anybody can develop and make his or her own.

Rhythm is more than the fluidity of the athletic motion. Rhythm is a way for athletes to suppress thinking and obtain consistency and accuracy. Basketball players create and use a rhythm to help make more free throws: They bounce the ball three times position the ball breathe deeply cock their arms and fire all in a

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 103 shoes to the center of each shoulder. Even wider stances are okay but narrower is not.

If stability continues to be a problem you might borrow something from Arnold Palmer who established a very solid base for his putting stroke by standing knock-kneed (Figure 4.10.14). With his knees turned in Arnold absolutely could not move his lower body. However most golfers I suggest this to seem embarrassed to use it which is too had because it works.

104 The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics

Opening or closing your stance by moving your feet off the flow-line is accept able but not recommended. Because your stance can affect your shoulder align ment and the line of your shoulders is vital to good putting I normally recom mend setting the feet square. Of course it is possible to move your feet open or closed without moving your shoulders. Just be sure your shoulder flow-line re mains parallel-left to your Aimline.

My measurements also show that many of the world’s best putters create a stable lower body by placing slightly more than half – 55 to 60 percent – of their weight on their forward foot.

Something else to watch out for in your putting stroke motion is any change in your elbow angles. I am told that early in the career of Arnold Palmer his father

Focus on using your spine as your axis now. Turn both shoulders and sides directly around your spine. Keep your left arm locked, and your left wrist locked. Although difficult to see from this camera-angle, the triangle is still perfectly in tact.
