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?

Boldmere Golf Club

Boldmere Golf club was established in 1936 originally as a 9 hole golf course. The club boasts the oldest pro-am event in Europe, with top professionals joining the competition since it began in 1952. A recent score of 57 by M. Morris stands as the lowest round at Boldmere golf club and a 5 under par round at boldmere with all of its challenging par 3’s is no mean feat. The par at boldmere is 62 with a total of 4202 yards, although only a short course consisting of 11 par 3’s, 6 par 4’s and 1 par 5, it is found by all who play here to be a tricky and challenging course due to the length of the long par 3’s where many golfers need a wood to reach.

262 Establish Your Practice Framework

The world’s great putters stick with their favorite putting tools over the years. You should too. them hone their good putting habits (such as square face alignment at the moment of impact) to a fine tolerance.

The opposite example is that of Arnold Palmer who late in his career took at least a dozen putters to the course with him every day. During his warm-up if he made a few putts with one it was in the bag for the day. No matter that the shaft and grip were different and the sweetspot was in a different place (relative to his hands) than on the putter he used the day before. I love and have great respect for Arnold Palmer as a person and a player and it took amazing athletic gifts to do what he did (particularly with the putting stroke he had). But I wish Arnold had learned to putt with a simpler stroke and stayed with one putter so he could have putted even better for even longer.

Picking up a new putter every day every week even every month will do you more harm than good. If you think the problem is in the putter have a competent golf professional properly fit the club to you your body and your stroke. Then – and this is key – commit to that club and commit to learning a better stroke with it than you ever had before. Once you learn a better stroke keep your commitment to groove it. And finally once you own it remember that you are only human so you’ll never be perfect which means you’ll have some bad putting days. But the good days will be much better than they used to be and the bad ones won’t be quite so bad. That’s improvement!

11.7 Learn to Aim

If you are unhappy with your ability to align your putter or you are just trying to choose between putters check your alignment with every putter you consider. If by chance you find one that you can aim better than the rest I recommend you use it. Alignment is the first fundamental of putting stroke mechanics; if you can’t

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

Extract from the book:

Position Aiming

Less important to the golfer’s overall aim than reaction aiming position aiming is a golfer’s tendency to modify his or her reaction aim based on the position of the eyes relative to the Aimline . There are valid reasons for this phenomenon.

Aimline then he is sure to misalign his putter (and likely miss the putt) because now his view has changed to alignment angle B. The mind can ‘t keep everything properly aimed if it has to deal with constantly changing views of alignment.

Any golfer whose eyes are not consistently vertically above his Aimline will have to change his view of alignment due to the changing angles he sees for putts of different lengths. The result is inconsistent alignment. The only way to align the putterface properly time after time is by positioning both eyes exactly vertically above the Aimline so the alignment angle is always zero degrees for all putts re gardless of length (Figure 4.4.3 C and D).

Detailed procedures for learning how to aim properly will be discussed in sec tion 12.6 where I’ll show you how to improve and even perfect your ability to aim. But for now realize that aim is an essential fundamental of putting a learned skill you have probably learned incorrectly (without knowing it) based on the results of past putting strokes and the positioning of your eyes (which you should keep vertically above the Aimline Figure 4.4.4).

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 67

If you don ‘t learn to aim correctly then no one (myself and my Scoring Game Schools included) will ever be able to teach you a good putting stroke. A good putting stroke with bad aim will miss every time and your subconscious will never let you learn a stroke that it knows will miss every time. Instead you ‘ll begin compensating. However once you learn to aim accurately along the Aimline you choose your putting instincts will lead you to make better less compensating strokes and that leads to holing more putts.

Now just line everything up with that item and fire away. This method won’t cure all of your alignment problems, but it does give you a simple way to assure that you are on the right path. Many students have the habit of lining up way left or way right of the target. When the ball goes where they are “aiming”, they think they have a problem. If your ball consistently goes left or right of target, but flies straight, then your problem is your alignment. Try this simple method before every shot on the course and you’ll definitely drop a few strokes.
