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?

Set in 150 acres of idyllic Warwickshire countryside, The ansty Golf Centre presents a 6,079 yard par 71 course suitable for all levels of golfer.The Oxford Canal bisects the course whilst the brook stretches across 7 of the holes at strategic points.As a consequence of all of the greens being sand-based, the greens drain extremely well and are rarely out of commission.

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

Extract from the book:

The J.D. Test

If you feel the wind blowing in a constant direction at a nearly constant speed here’s an unscientific test that may give you a slight advantage over your friends. Don’t take this too seriously (I don’t have enough data yet) but it seems to have some validity and it’s fun. It’s a simple way to estimate wind strength and we call it the “J.D.” test after my youngest son because he thought of it.

In Figure 9.6.1 Eddie my oldest son (J.D). was not available for a photograph) is releasing grass clippings from about three feet off the ground (the length of a standard putter) and watching not only the direction they blow but also the distance. For every putter length the grass clippings land away from the bottom of the putter J.D. calculated the wind speed will he about 10 mph. So if the grass lands nine feet away the wind at knee height is blowing 25 to 30 mph.

The Short-Game Advantage

If you’re smart you will accept the wind rather than fight it. Tom Kite used a smart wind strategy to win the 1992 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach. The wind gusted to 40 to 50 mph the entire final round and no one could hit the greens in regulation. Kite tried to keep his shots low and safe up to the greens then used his exceptional short-game skills (14 wedge shots to 14 different greens) to shoot even par. He played strategically getting himself into positions from which he could hit relatively easy short-game shots that would leave very short putts.

Methods of Putting 35

The simpler and easier the stroke is to execute the more precisely and repetitively you’ll be able to learn to execute it especially under pressure. And that’s why all my teaching begins with that principle.

Let’s examine some specifics about the many ways you can putt. First we’ll look at two of the easiest ways which are both illegal according to the USGA. Why? Well for one thing they really aren’t putting at all although they are very effective ways of rolling the ball on the green and into the hole. But they don’t utilize a stroke. Therefore according to the USGA they aren’t putting. And I must agree with them: They aren’t really putting.

The True Roller

After about 24 years of research I’ve determined that the easiest way to putt (notice I say “easiest ” not “easy”) is to roll putts from the True Roller. As shown in Figure 3.2.1 you can see that there’s no stroke at all: Simply aim the True Roller and then release the ball from the height required to provide it with the necessary speed. Looks easy right? The True Roller never pulls or pushes putts its backstroke never moves inside or outside the line so you might think it would he unbelievably easy to make putts using it. But it’s not that easy because you still have to know where to aim it and how fast and how far to roll the ball.

The True Roller is the easiest way to putt because it is as simple as starting the ball on the right line (in the right direction) and at the right speed. But that doesn’t mean it is easy. I know because I use it all the time in my research to determine the right speed and the right line and it can take me many tries to find the perfect release point and direction. But once I’ve got them I can roll the same putt exactly the same way over and over and over again. And ultimately that’s what you want your putting stroke to do. So the True Roller is as close to the ideal as I’ve found.

Hold the club steady with your right hand, and place left hand underneath the club as shown. The first joint of the left forefinger should be directly on the bottom of the handle, as well as the last joint of your left pinky. Once you have placed your palm on top of the club, do the same with your left thumb. Place it directly on top of the handle of the club. Next, interlock the left forefinger, and the right pinky. Nudge your right hand all the way towards the bottom of the grip. Now again, wrap the right palm all the way around the top of the grip. Don’t hold the grip of the club in your right palm. You should be able to cover up your left thumb with your right palm if you’ve done it correctly. You’ll see another V-shape being made where your right thumb and right forefinger meet. As a check, this V should be pointing directly at your right shoulder. If it doesn’t point at your right shoulder, rotate your hand on the grip so that it does. Your fingers should be giving the club most of the support it needs, NOT your palms.
