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?

Broadstone Golf Club

The original course – known as the Dorset Golf Club – was laid out by Tom Dunn and was played to the east of the now disused Somerset and Dorset railway line and was part heathland and part parkland. In 1914, H S Colt was commissioned to redesign the course. Holes 6, 7 and 8 were incorporated in existing land and holes 10 to 16 were laid out to the west of the railway line, thus changing the full 18 holes to heathland. The course has remained largely unaltered to this day, apart from modifying the 9th hole from a par 4 to a par 5.

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

Extract from the book:

20-Foot Drill

The purpose of the 20-foot drill is to train your subconscious to feel and perform the best it possibly can on the speed and distance of 20-footers. You need to practice the 20-foot length because my putting data shows that it is a frequent length for first putts. The drill consists of putting groups of three 20-footers from two opposite directions until you can roll 10 in a row at the proper speed.

We define proper speed as that which allows the ball to pass the back edge of the hole and stop within a 34-inch radius behind the hole (Figure 13.3.3). We call this area the “Safe-Zone ” and you will hear it referred to many times in my putting drills. The rules of this drill are as follows:

316 Develop Your Artistic Senses (Feel Touch Green-Reading)

To finish this drill you must roll 10 putts in a row that stop in the Safe-Zone and the 10th must be putted from the opposite side of the hole than the ninth. Remember all putts that fall into the hole count as good (as if they ‘ve stopped in the Safe-Zone).

This drill is great for developing feel because it makes you putt the same two putts over and over after you know what is needed and your touch is no longer in question. Also as you near the last few putts the pressure mounts to not miss which is a good test of how well you focus and concentrate on your feel under pressure.

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

Extract from the book:

But be careful because there is not just one single pendulum motion. A pendulum stroke can be swung down the line around the body or across the line. It can be swung with the face rotating or with the face kept square. It can be pushed or pulled or allowed to swing in a consistent natural rhythm.

The best of all these is the simplest of the simple the pure-in-line vertically swinging face-always-square natural-rhythm pendulum. It is the way to go if you want to putt your most consistently and most successfully.

I know it took a little time to get through all the possible strokes from the hardest to the easiest. But it is important that you understand the big picture of putting. It will help if you want to putt your best because at some point in your putting practice you’re going to doubt that what you’re doing is right that what you’re doing is working. And that’s when you’re going to fall back on the knowledge imparted here that to putt your best you must commit to the simplest stroke that will work for you and then believe in it. Come hell or high water – or missing 20 putts in a row – you must believe in the stroke you have committed to and stay with it until you groove it and own it. Only then can you ever hope to move toward achieving your personal optimum putting performances.

So let ‘s get into the putting methods techniques and systems most golfers use find out which is best for you and learn how to incorporate them mold them refine them and fit them into a system that will allow you to improve and then optimize your ability to putt.

THE FIFTEEN BUILDING BLOCKS OF PUTTING

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics

4.1 First Some Definitions In this and the next three chapters I will discuss the 15 building blocks of putting what they are how they work and what they mean to your ability to roll your puns into the hole. First I’ll list them all here (Figure 4.1.1) then define a few terms to enable us to keep our communications straight. Then I ‘ll jump in by detailing the seven blocks that deal with putting stroke mechanics.

As you can see in the image to the left, the back remains straight while bending over to the ball. All of the bending is done at the hips. Bending at the waist and keeping a straight back will promote great ball flight and consistency. The relationship between the arms and chest has not changed.
