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?

Bisham Abbey Golf Club

Bisham Abbey Golf Club (B.A.G.C.) was established in 1972.The challenging 9 Hole Par 3 course is situated in a beautiful riverside setting in the grounds of Bisham Abbey National Sports Centre. The Abbey has a rich and colourful history dating from the 13th century.The course isn’t long (2,518 yds for 18 holes) which means it is well suited to beginners, junior players, veterans and people with busy work or family lives.Part of the golf course has recently been remodelled and made more challenging due to a flood compensation requirement for the new Sports Building. With a tremendous effort from many of the club members (and particularly the Veterans section) we opened our new clubhouse in January 2005.The main objectives of B.A.G.C. are the promotion and encouragement of the learning and playing of golf together with related social and recreational activities, particularly for local people in the area of Bisham Abbey.

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

Extract from the book:

Success breeds success. That does not mean that if you make 6 billion one-foot putts in a row your confidence will soar and you’ll become a great putter. To build true confidence in putting you need to learn the feel of a great stroke practice making lots of putts with that stroke then experience making lots of putts on the

Develop Your Artistic Senses (Feel Touch Green-Reading) 343 golf course with that stroke. Then and only then after you’ve made hundreds of them over at least a few months does it become easy to believe that you are going to make the ones that follow.

So what does it take to be a great putter? You have to build a great putting stroke. And you also must understand the putting game as well as develop great feel great touch and great green-reading abilities. You have to learn to read the true break in putts and then learn to set up and use a noncompensating pils stroke along that Aimline … both at the same time. For most golfers improving the 15 building blocks of putting comes one step at a time. But believe me with smart practice they do come. And when they come together you are on track to being a truly great putter.

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

Extract from the book:

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 87 putter to the sweetspot and hold the putterface open to a 45-degree angle to the target with a piece of cardboard (cut the cardboard with equal-length sides A and B at right angles then cut side C between the end points as shown in the inset). Using both hands to hold the face open at that angle and keeping the heel against the wood slide the putter toward the target to simulate a putting stroke (shown from right to left in figure). If you keep the face 45 degrees open the ball will start to the right almost perpendicular to the open face (actually 45 degrees times .83 = 37 degrees) no matter how hard you hit it.

This should convince you that even with the perfect path poor face angle at the moment of impact will start your putts off-line big-time.

Do you still think putter path is as important as face angle? Reposition the piece of wood to produce a path at 45 degrees to the right of your Aimline and hold the putterface square to the Aimline aiming straight at the hole. Again use both hands to control face angle and path and slide the putterface along the edge of the wood. This stroke – with perfect face angle but 45-degree off-line path (Figure 4.8.3) – starts the ball only about 7 degrees off of the Aimline.

So if you are going to make a stroke error of 45 degrees which result would you rather see? A putt off-line by 7 degrees or 37 degrees? I’m sure you now agree with me that if you want to putt consistently along your intended Aimline you’d better learn to keep your putterface angle square to that line (the square face angle advantage of the pils vs. screen-door stroke should

You can never do it. You’re either working on keeping the face angle square to your early or you’re late by a minute a sec-Aimline than you do on perfecting your stroke ond a millisecond or a nanosecond.

I want you to understand the purpose of this technique before providing the details. It’s an easy technique that will produce fantastic results. You don’t need to have a long and complicated back swing to send the ball a long way down the fairway. Try taking, what you believe to be, a half swing. The ball will go almost as far. It may not leave the clubface with the same speed, but it also will not slice 40 yards to the right. Which shot would you rather have on a golf course? The drill I’m about to teach you will help you consistently keep the ball in the fairway, and give you better accuracy with all of your clubs.
