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?

Badgemore Park Golf Club was established in 1971. Golf architect Robert Sandow was commissioned to turn the 120 acres of mature woodland and landscaped park, which surrounded the former estate of the McAlpine family, into a beautiful 18-hole golf course.Over 30 years later a magnificent 6129-yard, 69 par golf course has resulted. The club is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty and is easily accessible from the historic town of Henley-on-Thames, and also the M4 and M40 motorways.

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

Extract from the book:

It’s important to understand that practice makes permanent. So poor practice will only help you become a permanently poor golfer (and if you practice poorly you deserve it). Only perfect practice helps move you toward perfection. My putting practice guidelines are listed in Figure 11.1.1. 1 hope that they will help you set yours.

These guidelines are the foundation (there ‘s that word again!) for all my prac tice sessions. I follow them no matter what aspect of my putting I’m working on

DP’s Practice Guidelines

222 Establish Your Practice Framework believing that by doing so whatever I learned or grooved during the session will stay with me when I get to the course.

Practicing this way does take more time than beating balls. However it is infinitely more valuable and productive. And it’s also more fun because it always ends with a strong feeling of accomplishment which is justified every time I go to the course and see good results.

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.

The picture at left shows the correct setup position from above. You can see the correct shoulder turn by looking at this picture in conjunction with the picture directly below. Notice that there is no horizontal movement. There should also be no vertical movement. Everything rotates around the spine. Focus on rotating the right side of your body around your spine. The left side will move into place automatically.
