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?

Burghley Park Golf Club came into being in 1890. It has had a chequered career but since the golf boom of the 1960’s has been on a sound footing with an excellent and improving course and a friendly membership.It is a Members Club and, in the main, membership is at the invitation of existing members subject to criteria laid down by the Committee. Applicants must be sponsored by two existing members who have themselves held membership for two years or more, although the Committee may consider established golfers moving into the area supported by a recommendation from their previous affiliated Club.

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

Extract from the book:

For example if instead of seeing a green that slopes to the right you could see a

2-slope green that will make your nine-foot putt break six inches to the right that

Develop Your Artistic Senses (Feel Touch Green-Reading) 335 would be good. If instead of seeing a pretty fast green you could see a 10-speed green just like the one you putted on last week when you ran the ball eight feet past the hole that would be very helpful. And if instead of seeing a putt that looked as if it broke two inches into the cup you’d see a visual break of two inches which you know means you need to start the ball six inches above the hole (because it will truly break six inches) you would be much more likely to make the putt. In all of these cases you would be seeing more and seeing better.

This isn’t as complex or confusing as it sounds. Green-reading isn’t physics: Anyone can learn to do it. You’ve already been looking at and seeing all these things every time you putt. But you’ve been interpreting them incorrectly and making your subconscious deal with trying to make things right. The truth is the better you read (see the break in) greens and the less your subconscious has to compensate the better you will putt. If you take the trouble to improve how you “see” greens and break as I ‘ve outlined above you will begin to read greens better.

And now comes the companion step: If you also learn how to putt without unnecessary compensations you’ll be on your way to great putting.

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

Extract from the book:

Spinning Puffs

Forget here and now the idea of imparting spin as a way to control your putts. Research has shown that the friction of the green removes all spin from rolling halls

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 93 within about the first 20 percent of their roll. Despite this golfers think that Ben Crenshaw became a good putter by learning to put overspin on his putts and that Bobby Locke put “hook spin” on his putts which made them dive into the hole. Neither of these descriptions is true but amateur golfers believe them because they sound reasonable and give them something new to try in their own putting. (They also give amateurs an excuse for not putting better. Trust me: Most amateurs don’t need any more excuses.)

Still many golfers and even some teaching professionals extol the benefits of “releasing” the putter through impact rotating the face from open to closed to impart hook spin or overspin. Again all reasonably well-stroked putts can be shown to be rolling without any spin whatsoever when they reach the hole. So trying to release the putter makes no sense unless it encourages you to follow through in your stroke and eliminates deceleration and instability. However even in this case releasing the putter will produce more face rotation and give you more inconsistency in directional control due to increased timing problems.

The Razor-Blade Putter

Because so many people assume that putts can spin all the way to the hole and are obsessed with the idea of overspin I built a putter that let me examine and evaluate the benefit of true overspin. I embedded a razor blade just above the center of a putterface (Figure 4.9.4) making sure the sharp edge of the blade would contact the ball above its geometric center and impart true overspin.

I tested the razor-blade putter versus an identical putter with a normal face and counted how many putts each one holed. On very short putts – inside three feet – the razor putter performed pretty well. However on longer putts it created true initial overspin that caused the balls to “grab” on the green and jump forward uncontrollably.

After we get through the remaining sections, you will understand that this will change your swing plane a bit. Your swing plane will become more horizontal, the straighter you stand up. Please realize that nothing else should change. You will swing each of your clubs in exactly the same fashion (found below). This repositioning at setup will have a huge effect on the outcome of your shot, so please take some time to see where you are the most comfortable.
