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?

Clandon Regis Golf Club

Designed by David Williams, for many years consultant architect to the European Tour, Clandon Regis Golf Club was built in 1992/93 and opened in June 1994 as a proprietary club. Clandon Regis quickly attained Championship status and hosted the final of the PGA Southern Professional Championship in 1995 and again in 1996. The course was chosen as the venue for the inaugural event of the MasterCard Tour in 1997. Clandon Regis is also proud to be the Headquarters of the PGA South Region.

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

Extract from the book:

Green-Reading the 15th Building Block

7.1 Houston – We Have a Problem

When the world-famous phrase “Houston – We have a problem” was transmitted from the Apollo 13 spacecraft back to earth it signified one of the most profound understatements of all time. It came as a calm voice from a spacecraft on its way to the moon to the Houston ground-control command center from an astronaut who while petrified with fear understood that he had a real problem (there had been an explosion on board his spacecraft; Figure 7.1.1). However no one on Earth understood the magnitude of the problem. Ground control had lost all normal monitor and status signals and nothing they saw on their control-system panels made any sense. They were sure the crazy array of warning signals and lights out-of-tolerance levels and emergency-warning systems had to be some malfunction of their ground-control systems. The ground controllers thought “This can’t be real because for these readings to be correct the spacecraft would have to explode.”

I’m not an astronaut but I did work for NASA during the years of the Mercury

Apollo 13 crippled the spacecraft halfway to the moon almost costing the lives of three astronauts.

Green-Reading the 15th Building Block 143 and Apollo space missions. I was a research scientist at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland studying the aeronomy (physics and chemistry) of Earth and our near planetary atmospheres involved in launching satellites and then trying to figure out what the returning data meant (Figure 7.L2). In 1975 I turned the focus of my research from outer space to golf and I have been studying testing and teaching the game ever since. Today as founder of the Pelz Golf Institute which is designed to study and understand the game so we may teach golfers to play better and enjoy it more I say “Golfers – We have a problem.”

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

Extract from the book:

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 63 the green surface is low letting balls roll farther and longer. A rapidly slowing and short roll off a Stimpmeter means the friction of the green surface is high and the green speed is very slow.

Green speed always affects a putt’s speed and direction of roll (except on dead flat greens where direction is straight no matter what the speed). And the combination of green speed the amount of energy transferred to a putt and the influence of contours and slopes on the greens determines the results of your putts based on how much the putt truly breaks your putt’s initial Aimline and starting speed.

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics

Seven of the 15 building blocks of putting deal with stroke mechanics. By the end of this chapter you should understand them and how they affect your ability to putt. These seven fundamentals (Figure 4.4.1) have the most to do with determining the quality of a putting stroke and its results. They are not the only mechanical factors but they are the primary ones and the ones we are most concerned with in our schools. They are your aim power source putter path putterface angle impact point flow lines and putter fitting. If you understand and improve these seven fundamentals you will roll better putts. If you also can understand how to read greens better and learn to have better putting feel and touch then there is no question but that you will also make more putts.

It is a fact proven by testing that the better you aim the better you putt. That’s why I say aim is the first fundamental of putting stroke mechanics. Most golfers aim very poorly which is significant because aim can have a direct impact on all the other fundamentals: If you aim poorly something else in your stroke must compensate to correct for the error.

Aim Is Learned

Aiming is easy. Everybody aims. It is aiming precisely where you want to aim that is more elusive. The fact that most golfers do a poor job of aiming is not surprising because there’s no feedback on a putting green to teach golfers how to aim properly. In the absence of feedback golfers use two inputs to guide their attempts to aim: First they use their previous putting results (what I call reaction aiming) and second they use the look of their putter relative to their Aimline (what I call position aiming). Further explanations are in order.

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

Extract from the book:

Golf Tuition Clandon Regis Golf Club

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.
