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?

Bearsden Golf Club

Founded in 1891, Bearsden Golf Club is one of the oldest clubs on the North side of Glasgow.Enjoying a reputation for friendliness and golfing inclusiveness, the club has recently concluded one of the most important periods in its history with a new clubhouse having been built and extensive drainage and other course improvement work having been undertaken.Our course is unique in the area being basically 9 holes but with 7 alternate greens.A 9 hole course may be viewed in some quarters as a disadvantage but the current thinking of the sport’s governing bodies is that there is a need for more 9 hole courses to be built.With a Standard Scratch Score of 69 our course is arguably the most challenging test in the Bearsden and Milngavie area.

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

Extract from the book:

Jack Nicklaus struggling over short putts for a short period of his career.

Despite what people think and say the yips are not caused by a player’s age.

Bernhard Langer had the yips at age 19 before he became one of the world’s great players. Susceptibility to yips seems to correlate with three personal characterise

The yips are nothing to be ashamed of. In fact the three necessary characteristics – intelligence caring and lots of hard work and practice – are all what I

362 Face Your Special Problems would consider prerequisites for greatness. While you don’t have to be intelligent to be a good putter I think you do have to be intelligent to be a good putter for a long period of time. All humans have good and bad performance periods and to get past the bad times you must be smart enough to know what and why you do things and how to fix things when they go wrong. You also need to know what not to fix (or change).

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

Extract from the book:

Once your posture is correct as described above position your eyes somewhere directly over the Aimline of your putt as discussed in section 4.4. Accomplish this by moving closer to or farther away from the ball – not by changing your back angle or leaning over or hack. Remember the Aimline extends behind the hall so it’s okay to set your eyes slightly behind the ball Jack Nicklaus – style (Figure 4.10.6).

One word of realism here: Positioning your eyes over your Aimline won’t make you aim perfectly but it will allow you to aim consistently. If you learn how to aim perfectly (in Chapter 11) by eliminating compensations for your stroke faults then consistently perfect aim will become automatic.

Don ‘t Fight Your Flow-Lines

The easiest way to putt is with the “flow-lines” of your body aligned parallel-left of your Aimline (any line which is parallel to your Aimline and to the left of it is defined as “parallel-left of the Aimline). You’re probably not familiar with the term “flow-lines ” so look at Figure 4.10.7. The lines of flow through my shoulders forearms hips knees and feet are all parallel and to the left of my Aimline which is shown by the shaded white line on the green.

As I mentioned earlier (section 4.7) your putter will tend to swing naturally down the Aimline through impact if your shoulders are aligned parallel to that direction unless you do something to prevent this move with the muscles of your hands and wrists. So it’s very important to start your setup with the flow-line of your shoulders parallel to your Aimline.

To emphasize the power of this concept my “bad-flow-line” setup is shown in Figure 4.10.8. Look at my shoulder flow-line. From this position do you expect my putter to naturally swing (flow) down the Aimline? No way! It doesn’t do it when Perfy sets up and swings this way and it won’t swing down my Aimline either unless 1 compensate and use my muscles to make it do so.

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

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.
