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?

Beccles golf course has 9 holes with 9 casual play tees and 18 different tees for competions. The first hole is a par 3 played across a dip with gourse on both sides,the green being situated on the far side. The second hole also a par 3 plays over the gourse and is quite testing at 220yds. The third hole is a par 4 played straight down to the far end of the common with out of bounds behind the green,it’s a bit tricky down wind….

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

Extract from the book:

Mark Your Dot-Spot Too

Yes dimples can affect putting. Or more precisely making contact on the edges of dimples can affect your putting. It’s not a large effect and it’s even less significant the harder you strike your putts. Also the effect doesn’t occur every time because if you place your ball down on the green in random orientations you’re more likely to strike the ball somewhere that won’t have an effect – on the spherical

212 Wind Lopsided Balls Dimples Rain Sleet and Snow surface across the flat of a dimple or close to the flat of the dimple. Still the possibility does exist and there is a simple way to avoid it altogether.

Having marked your ball with its Balance-line (see section 9.9) rotate it until you locate the largest spherical surface (non-dimple) area on the Balance-line then circle it: This becomes your Dot-Spot (Figure 9.10.7). Set your ball so the Dot-Spot is at the back of the ball (away from the hole where it will be struck by the putter) when your Balance-line is aimed precisely along your Aimline. That way when you make contact there will never be a dimple effect.

9.11 Rain Sleet and Snow: Are We Having Fun Yet?

As I warned you at the beginning of this chapter the information here truly could be more than many golfers want to know. But please don ‘t think that I’m trying to make putting seem more difficult. You don’t have to carry any of this information with you onto the course. You don’t have to think about it ever again if you don’t want to. But someday the fact that you read something about putting in the wind may help you. Or perhaps you’ll think “Maybe I’ll try that Pelz tip and turn the ball so I don’t hit the edge of a dimple.” It can’t hurt.

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 77

The Simplest Pendulum

To examine the putting stroke of vertical pendulum A look at Figure 4.6.9 where the golfer’s hands hang vertically below his shoulders. On the left of this photo the attached putter hangs vertically below the hands which looks a bit strange. But stay with me. If the golfer now swings his arms straight hack along the line of this intended putt lets them relax and then swings them through – guided simply by the force of gravity – the putterface would swing perfectly along the line of this putt (Figure 4.6.9A’). This path is purely in-line along the Aimline just like pendulum A with no side forces or path curvature.

By starting with the putterface square to the line and using this pure-in-line stroke the ball would have to start rolling on that line. The pendulum swings this way because gravity is the only force acting on the stroke: There are no rotating forces to turn the putterface away from the target line and no side forces to push the putter off the straight Aimline path.

Now imagine a minor modification to this putter a lightweight but much longer face (Figure 4.6.9A`’). With this change the putter would still swing perfectly in-line beneath the shoulders and there still is nothing to cause rotation or circular motion in the stroke. In Figure 4.6.9A’ we’ve added a lightweight but rigid connection from the grip to the putterface near its toe. Assuming this connection is truly lightweight and doesn’t change the putter’s balance the swing path still would not change still would not rotate and would naturally continue to swing in-line along the straight line path beneath the shoulders.

Finally having seen how this putter swings with both shafts now look what happens when the vertical part of the shaft is removed in Figure 4.6.9A”. By removing the original vertical shaft (which hung under the hands) and the back of the putterface we have turned this into a normal-looking putter which still swings in a pure-in-line path as before. This face (again assuming the putter was balanced perfectly) will not rotate open or closed and will not swing or curve around the body. The natural swinging motion of this putter will be purely in-line along a line exactly parallel to his shoulder line. In other words this putter path will track right down the Aimline the intended line of the putt.

Notice that the right elbow becomes locked now as the right arm continues to swing. As you can see the right wrist has started to roll on top of the left wrist. The left elbow is now closer to the body, and is able to bend. The left elbow cannot be completely stopped at the imaginary line, but just a hesitation is enough to let your hands swing through the ball. Notice that the triangle is still present.
