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?

Brocket Hall Golf Club

Appropriately, Brocket Hall’s two Championship Golf Courses are named after the Prime Ministers who used to reside at Brocket Hall. The Melbourne Course, designed by Peter Alliss and Clive Clark follows the natural undulations and contours of the 18th Century parkland. The par 72 provides a most enjoyable challenge in stunning surroundings. The course crosses the River Lea several times, and golfers are carried across the Broadwater by a ferry to complete the 18th hole.

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

Extract from the book:

There was a widely circulated story about Lee Trevino going to a used-club barrel finding a putter he liked and using it to win the 1972 British Open at Muirfield in Scotland. While true the story has probably hurt more amateurs’ putting than you’d ever think possible. Lee credited his win to great putting and his newly found putter. But the press didn’t realize that the putter put his hands in a better position helping him putt better because it helped his already smooth-as-silk stroke. They reported about Lee’s magic putter which sent legions of golfers scurrying to find any and every old cheap putter they could get their hands on. A “found” putter may have worked for Lee but for every such story I’ve heard over the years I know of maybe a thousand cases of my students picking up new putters that ruined (or at least damaged) their putting. A badly fit putter can hurt

Establish Your Practice Framework 245 you while a perfectly fit putter will usually only not hurt you. A perfect putter usually won’t make your stroke better it won’t make your green-reading any better and it certainly won’t knock the putts into the hole for you.

I put the odds at a thousand-to-one that a new questionably fit putter will help you putt better. Every once in a great while a golfer finds a putter with a head he can aim better or that sets him in a better position (like Lee’s hands). But even then it usually doesn’t last because the golfer doesn’t understand what happened moves on to another bad habit and starts putting poorly again. As for that magic putter? Well it must have lost its magic so back into the garage or another barrel it goes.

That’s what putter-fitting can’t do. Let’s see what it can do and what you should do about it.

Lie Angle and Shaft Length

These are the two specifications you should get fit first. Starting in a perfect setup position – eyes vertically above the Aimline hands vertically under the shoulders shoulder and forearm flow-lines parallel to the Aimline posture and back-to-hip angles comfortable – there is only one lie angle and one shaft length that will position the ball exactly at the sweetspot of the putter (Figure 11.6.3) while connecting the putterhead to your hands.

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

Extract from the book:

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.

Imagine the line that has been drawn is your spine (axis). When the backswing is made, just rotate everything around that axis. If you do this properly, you will be on the correct plane. This correct swing plane will help your power, accuracy, and consistency. Keep the left arm locked as shown.
