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:

What Are They Looking At? So what are golfers who plumb-bob doing? What are they looking at? Do these golfers – and I’m talking about some very good players (Figure 7.11.5) – have any idea what they’re doing?

After questioning several hundred plumb-bobbing golfers and measuring how they read break I’ve determined that they all violate the third rule of plumb-bobbing listed above. They don’t really stand behind the ball exactly on the ball-hole line. They say they do but if you measure where they stand they really don’t. Rather they instinctively stand below (on the low side of) that line. Then when they hold the putter over the ball in front of one eye (and that eye is now on the low side of the ball-hole line) the top of the shaft appears to be on the high side of the hole (giving them the view shown previously in Figure 7.11.2 B and D) confirming a break from the high side down the slope.

All this means is that the subconscious knew where to stand and which way the ball would break before the golfer ever lifted the putter to eye level. So in truth golfers who plumb-bob to read their putts stand (position themselves) so they see what they already (at least subconsciously) know.

Green-Reading the 15th Building Block 175

I’ll say it again: The plumb-bob doesn ‘ t work in putting.

Now here’s the scary part. My measurements show that golfers who plumb-bob don’t read the break any better or worse than golfers who don’t (they still see only about 29 percent; pros see 33 percent of the true break). That should tell you something about the state of green-reading in the world today.

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

Extract from the book:

68 The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics ralness don’ t necessarily mean correct. And in fact trying to find a way to putt that is both initially comfortable and natural usually leads to disaster.

Supplying the power which determines how fast and how far your putts will roll from the muscles of your wrists hands and fingers (Figure 4.5.1) is bad. Wrist motion (hinging) causes putterface angle variations and hand and wrist muscles lend to tighten up and not work well under even slight pressure. But powering your putts with these muscles also brings an added complication: It’s not had all the time.

You can practice putting this way for years and as long as you putt on the course exactly the way you do in practice – relaxed and calm – things will be reasonably okay. But wait until you get really excited. When your heart begins to beat faster because a putt really matters your body naturally produces adrenaline which makes all of your muscles stronger. Then all your practice goes out the window because the muscles that control your putting power are now stronger than they ever were on the putting green. Even if your stroke feels the way it did in practice the adrenaline-induced extra power will cause it to provide the wrong amount of energy to your putts and produce bad results on the course.

You Can’t Avoid Adrenaline Everybody gets to experience excitement and adrenaline in golf. It’s part of why we love the game and if you want to become a better player you must learn to deal with it. You must learn to play well when adrenaline is in your system. This is easy in the power game when you want to hit the ball as far you can with whatever club is in your hands. Adrenaline in your system helps you to do this. But putting is altogether different. You can’t take one less club on the green when you’re pumped up. And you certainly don ‘t want to putt the ball as far as you can.

Luckily there is a simple way to control adrenaline when putting. Learn to putt

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 69 in such a way that the adrenaline-affected muscles of your fingers hands and wrists don’t control how far or fast your putts roll. You’ll learn about that in section 13.5.

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

Extract from the book:

Notice that the right elbow becomes locked now as the right arm continues to swing. As you can see the right wrist has started to roll on top of the left wrist. The left elbow is now closer to the body, and is able to bend. The left elbow cannot be completely stopped at the imaginary line, but just a hesitation is enough to let your hands swing through the ball. Notice that the triangle is still present.
