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?

Arrowe Park Golf Course is a challenging 18 hole parkland course rolling through the 450 acres of Arrowe country park. Measuring a little over 6000 yards from the championship tees, the course is not overly long; however, a look at the standard scratch of 72 against a par of 71 indicates a good test awaits when you come to play! Practise facilities include a putting green, a 200 yard practise fairway and a nine hole pitch and putt course.

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

Extract from the book:

290 Improve Your Stroke Mechanics when practicing with a Track Teacher Clips and Putter Rails: The better you get the tighter you make the tolerance for feedback.)

Many golfers are surprised to see that my arms and putterface slay square to the Aimline even on a breaking putt (Figure 12.4.6). But as you know by now if you want your putt to repeatedly start rolling on the Aimline your putterface needs to be accurately aimed there well through impact and beyond.

This drill may look a little odd on a putting green but it gives golfers a clear understanding and feel of what causes their putterface to rotate. Remember in almost every other golf swing your forearms and hands rotate 180 degrees as they pass through impact. In putting just a few degrees rotation may feel like nothing but it’s more than enough to destroy your putting results.

Truthboard

The final step in your elimination of putterface rotation should be use of the Truthboard (Figure 12.4.7) an aluminum ramp that is dead-flat so a putt can roll dead-straight on it. After you adjust the Truthboard to be precisely level (a level vial by the hole measures this) it provides a perfect surface on which to practice three-foot putts – no break to misread no footprints no spike marks no poorly fixed pitch marks to affect the roll. When your putt is struck with a square face angle the ball will roll straight up the ramp and into the hole. If your face angle is bad at impact the ball will roll off-line and miss the hole. The Truthboard is

Improve Your Stroke Mechanics 291 designed to provide immediate accurate reliable feedback about your putter-face at impact. It reports nothing but the truth (by assuring perfect alignment at address it ingrains a noncompensating stroke) and you can learn from that. Set up the Truthboard with the hole at full size and level the board (adjust one leg until the level vial bubble is centered). Install toe-line tape to make sure you stand the correct distance from the ball set your metronome to beep at your natural body-rhythm cadence and use your preview stroke and ritual before every putt.

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

Extract from the book:

The speed of the surface of the green or green speed affects a ball’s roll in speed direction and amount of break. I ‘m sure you have heard greens referred to as “fast ” “slow ” “quick ” “slick ” or “sticky.” Technically the speed of the green is determined by the frictional characteristics of the surface of the green which is controlled primarily by the length type density and moisture content of the grass (more on this in Chapter 7). Golf course superintendents traditionally measure the speed characteristics of greens using a device called the Stimpmeter. much speed (left) and perfect speed (right) for two putts rolled on the same starting line.

The Stimpmeter developed years ago by a man named Edward Stimpson is a crude yet simple way to measure how far a ball will roll on a flat portion of a green when it is given a standard starting speed. The USGA-approved version of a

Stimpmeter is a solid straight piece of aluminum extruded at a 30-degree angle with an indentation near the top and a beveled bottom (Figure 4.3.2). The beveled bottom allows the Stimpmeter to sit low to the green surface and reduce the bounce of a ball rolling down the channel when it hits the green.

The Stimpmeter was designed to release balls onto a green surface with constant initial speed (energy).

Measuring Green Speed To use a Stimpmeter a ball is placed in the indentation and the device is raised slowly until the ball rolls free and down the groove onto the green (Figure 4.3.3). Care must he taken to hold the Stimpmeter still as the ball rolls down the ramp to ensure constant release energy and ball speed at the bottom of the ramp.

To measure green speed three balls are rolled in one direction on the green measuring how far each ball rolls (in feet) from the end of the Stimpmeter. The same three balls then are rolled in the opposite direction over the same section of the green and again the distances are measured. The six distances are averaged to produce a quantitative measurement of the average distance a ball rolls on that green called the green speed. A slow green is about a 7 (meaning the balls rolled an average of 7 feet) while a fast green comes in at about a 10. Most PGA tournaments aim for green speeds between 10.5 and 11. When greens start rolling at 12 to 13 they are called “Augusta fast ” because that’s often the speed of the greens at Augusta National Golf Club home of The Masters every spring.

Longer rolls (from higher green speeds) for longer times mean the friction of

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.
