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?

Chester Curzon Park Golf Club

Founded in 1901. A meadowland course on two levels contained within a loop of the River Dee. The car park overlooks the racecourse across the river.The Chester golf club as we know it has developed through many changes since its formation in 1901.The club officially came into being on 24th May 1901 when it was able to lay out a 6 – Hole Course on land owned by Farmer Ithell at Upton Hall. This was adjacent to, and just North of, the then County Asylum which later became the Deva Hospital, and is now part of the Countess of Chester Hospital.

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

Extract from the book:

I say affect your brain because your eyes process information and feed it to your brain at all times. If you perceive that you need to push your putt out to the right because your eye flow-line is aimed too far left then your brain will make your body do it. When you are trying to perceive distance your eye-line should he horizontal in the binocular position (the way we usually look at things with our head up) to enhance depth perception (left side of Figure 4.10.H). However when you are looking along your Aimline to perceive the flow motion of your putter and ball along it your eye-line should he parallel-left (Figure 4.10.11 right).

As for your hip knee and feet flow-lines there is no reason I know of to have them aligned in any direction other than the intended flow direction of your putts. Some golfers tell me they see the line better when they stand open to their putts but when I test how well they are seeing the line it is usually pretty poorly. Look at Figure 4.10.12 and decide for yourself: Which setup do you think will produce better and more consistent putter flow down the Aimline?

The Stance

I am a strong believer in taking a narrow stance when chipping or pitching onto the green because that encourages golfers to use their lower bodies to maintain the rhythm of their swings.

And those arc the same reasons I strongly discourage a narrow stance for putting. A narrow stance makes it too easy for the golfer to move and rotate the lower body. Furthermore a narrow stance isn’t stable enough to resist being pushed around in the wind.

To establish a stable base for your stroke take a stance width that is at least as wide as your shoulders (Figure 4.10.13) as measured from the centerline of your

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

Extract from the book:

Once your posture is correct as described above position your eyes somewhere directly over the Aimline of your putt as discussed in section 4.4. Accomplish this by moving closer to or farther away from the ball – not by changing your back angle or leaning over or hack. Remember the Aimline extends behind the hall so it’s okay to set your eyes slightly behind the ball Jack Nicklaus – style (Figure 4.10.6).

One word of realism here: Positioning your eyes over your Aimline won’t make you aim perfectly but it will allow you to aim consistently. If you learn how to aim perfectly (in Chapter 11) by eliminating compensations for your stroke faults then consistently perfect aim will become automatic.

Don ‘t Fight Your Flow-Lines

The easiest way to putt is with the “flow-lines” of your body aligned parallel-left of your Aimline (any line which is parallel to your Aimline and to the left of it is defined as “parallel-left of the Aimline). You’re probably not familiar with the term “flow-lines ” so look at Figure 4.10.7. The lines of flow through my shoulders forearms hips knees and feet are all parallel and to the left of my Aimline which is shown by the shaded white line on the green.

As I mentioned earlier (section 4.7) your putter will tend to swing naturally down the Aimline through impact if your shoulders are aligned parallel to that direction unless you do something to prevent this move with the muscles of your hands and wrists. So it’s very important to start your setup with the flow-line of your shoulders parallel to your Aimline.

To emphasize the power of this concept my “bad-flow-line” setup is shown in Figure 4.10.8. Look at my shoulder flow-line. From this position do you expect my putter to naturally swing (flow) down the Aimline? No way! It doesn’t do it when Perfy sets up and swings this way and it won’t swing down my Aimline either unless 1 compensate and use my muscles to make it do so.

The “Simple Golf” Swing: “Golf for the Rest of Us”

Please start with the three pictures below. Understand that the point of these pictures is to get your arms and chest connected. You should understand the feeling of “being connected” before you try to incorporate this critical step into your golf swing. If you hold the club straight out in front of you, there will be a triangle formed between your arms and chest. Just focus on keeping the triangle between your arms and chest fixed. Just move your arms with your chest. When your chest stops rotating, your arms also stop. Please see the three pictures below and try it out. Turn to your right, then back around to your left, keeping the triangle between your arms and chest constant at all times.
