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?

Aldersey Green Golf Club

Set in 200 acres of Cheshire countryside, Aldersey Green Golf Club has a golf course that is envied by many but rivalled by few in terms of sheer enjoyment to play. Many of the fairways are tree-lined and narrow making accuracy from the tee absolutely pivotal to scoring well. The course is also home to 14 lakes so by warned that any stray shots can, and on many occasions will be punished. Packing a few extra balls in your bag might be a good idea!The course is superbly laid out and offers some fine panoramic views. Why not enjoy them after your round by relaxing in the fine clubhouse, the perfect place for some post-match unwinding.

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

Extract from the book:

Stadler a wonderful player now as he has been for many years (Figure 14.1.2). But he sometimes moves his upper body so much during his stroke that he almost can’t find the ball let alone the hole when he putts. Some golfers make way fewer than the average number of 10- to 20-footers while others struggle with short putts. Some can’t make left-to-right-breaking putts and many golfers can’t get the ball to consistently reach the hole. However it’s interesting that few great golfers have trouble lagging their putts close to the hole. I’d say that’s because lag putting isn’t all that difficult (as I discussed in Chapter 13). his wrists to the extreme. His putting has suffered from it too.

Tom Watson Greg Norman David Duval and Tiger Woods may be the best players since Jack Nicklaus but they all have room for improvement in their putting games: Watson has had trouble making the short ones consistently; Norman sometimes loses his tempo becomes too deliberate and his conversion of 6-to 12-footers suffers as a result; Duval occasionally rushes and pushes too many putts; and Tiger keeps trying to keep putts from breaking and blows too many short ones past the hole causing too many lip-outs. Watch the pros and you’ll see that all of them are constantly working on their putting. But they have a lot more to lose than they have to gain when they work on any part of their game so they must be especially careful to pick the right part (building block) of their putting game to work on. Then they must improve in a way that benefits their putting game and allows their improved putting game to fit into their whole game without causing any other problems elsewhere.

My point is that while every golfer has putting problems every one of these problems is fixable. Poor golfers can putt better average golfers can learn to putt great and

346 Face Your Special Problems great putters can putt great even more consistently. (And yes poor putters can learn to putt great but it comes in stages: First they must putt better then good then really good then almost great and finally great.) Look at the change Hal Sutton has made in the position of his left wrist through impact (Figure 14.1.3). For a while Hal was breaking down badly and his putting was miserable for a few years. But he worked through it and was one of the stalwarts for the U.S. team in their 1999 Ryder Cup victory after having a great year in ’99 while putting like a magician.

So whether your problems are in the fundamental building blocks of your putting game or in the nagging little details to be discussed in this chapter you must believe you can solve these problems and become a good putter. And you can.

14.2 Too Many Three-Putts

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

Extract from the book:

Look at Figure 3.5.10 and you can see his right arm and hand arc behind the left pushing the putter through impact like a piston firing straight down the line. There is no putter rotation no forearm rotation and no wrist breakdown through the impact zone. The push stroke at its best and Jack at his best are and were almost unbeatable.

We are nearly at the simple end of the USGA-approved putting techniques. And it’s here that you encounter the long-putter method which is probably one option the ruling body would like to outlaw. But as long as it remains legal I suggest you give it a try (if for no other reason than to experience the feel and vision of a true pendulum motion). Because when done properly the long putter creates a wonderfully simple stroke (as demonstrated by Sam Torrance of the European Tour on the left side of Figure 3.5.1 1).

The solid shaft of the long putter eliminates any chance of wrist hinge or breakdown and minimizes the tendency to rotate the putterface with your forearms. I’ve tested thousands of students in my Scoring Game Schools and found that the majority of them make more putts of six feet or less with a long putter than when putting any other way including the conventional way. It is a very simple way to putt especially on short putts.

My tests also show that the long putter hanging vertically (from under the chin) is marginally more effective than the long putter anchored against the chest (right side of Figure 3.5.11) and better than the midlength putter anchored below the chest. But all three of these options because they employ a longer-thannormal-length shaft eliminate the problem of wrist breakdown that hampers many golfers.

The negatives of putting with a long putter are learning to roll putts the right distance (it requires learning new feel and touch for distance) and occasional instability in windy conditions. However both problems can be handled with a little practice leading me to believe they aren’t inherent problems but caused by a lack of experience.

At the end of step two, you reached the top of your backswing. As soon, as you get there, start your downswing. As you start the downswing, make sure to remind yourself to keep your arms “connected” to your chest and shoulders. Stay connected all the way through the ball. Your hands and arms only swing as the shoulders rotate. If you start your downswing by rotating your chest, without starting to swing your arms, you will most definitely end up slicing the ball. If you swing your arms before rotating your chest, you will most likely hook the ball. Staying connected will always produce the straightest ball.
