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?

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

Extract from the book:

We recently purchased some wind velocity measuring equipment and measured average wind profiles which showed that wind speeds do indeed drop as they get closer to the earth’s surface. However we found that they don’t get to zero until they reach absolute ground level. And at the height of a golf ball – 1.68 inches above the ground – the wind can be blowing at a relatively rapid pace. When we saw wind speeds at 1 inch above ground level within 20 to 30 percent of those speeds measured at 6 feet we realized that our pant cuffs and leaves are not moving on their own.

And yes it’s true balls sitting stationary on the green don’t move even when the greens are pretty fast until wind speeds reach about 25 to 30 mph an inch off the ground at which point you would call it a very windy day. But the force of friction between a green and a ball at rest (static friction) is different from the friction between the same green and a moving ball (rolling friction) by a significant amount with rolling friction being lower.

Armed with these ideas and statistics I decided to look into wind’s effects on rolling putts. The intent was to learn how much the wind has to be blowing before you should be concerned about its effects on your putting.

9.3 Scoring Indicates Yes

Let ‘s look at an extreme wind effect from the PGA Tour. Figure 9.3.1 shows the full-field average scores in The Players Championship at Sawgrass over five years. The scoring average was 71.8 on calm days. But on the infamous “Black Friday” in 1977 when the wind blew at an unprecedented strength scores were significantly higher averaging 78.3. What happened that Friday was this: After missing the greens in regulation the pros couldn’t make their putts to save par either. As you can imagine when wind blows balls away from the greens on the course putting on the greens also suffers dramatically.

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

Extract from the book:

In keeping with their tradition of maintaining the game’s challenge the USGA would prefer that golfers putt in what they describe as the “traditional style.” While this technique is not as simple or easy as the methods described above it’s not necessarily all that difficult either. Lots of putts have been and will be made the USGA way.

Up to this point I have been going from the easiest to more difficult ways to putt. Now I have to reverse that. In discussing the following ways to putt all of which conform to the Rules I will begin with the most difficult and work down to what I perceive to be the easiest way to putt.

The USGA would be happiest if every golfer would putt like Bobby Jones (Figure 3.4.1) used to putt and would use a putter similar to Jones’s old “Calamity Jane.” Jones putted standing perpendicular to the intended putting line and made what appeared to be a miniature golf swing. While this sounds like it might make putting easy being like all the other swings in golf in reality it makes putting quite a bit more difficult.

If the putting stroke is a miniature chip shot which is a miniature 5-iron swing which is a miniature driver swing it makes down-the-line vision difficult involves a slight rotation of the body and encourages rotation of the forearms. This also encourages rotation of the putterface provides far more power than is needed and brings to bear critical timing requirements all of which make putting so difficult and traumatic to so many golfers.

Methods of Putting 41

As I continue to detail the various options you have for putting you should know that some of the legal ways are easier than others (yet not one is truly easy). And here’s the kicker: Only one will work best for you.

As 1 mentioned above l’m moving from the more to the less complex in terms of having to perform manipulations and actions to make these strokes happen. That means I’m going to finish with the method I think is the easiest. You can skip ahead if you like but 1’d suggest reading through the less desirable methods so you don’t someday find yourself doing something that you think is good but is actually hurting your chances of success.

Golf Swing Tips

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

Extract from the book:

Golf Tuition Cleeve Cloud Golf Club

First of all, it’s important that you realize that your grip will affect the results that you get. However, it’s not as complicated as the other systems make it out to be. First, grab the club with your right hand so the face of it is toward the target. Keep the face pointed toward the target, while placing your left hand on the bottom of the grip or handle. At this point you should be holding your left hand out flat, so that it is touching the bottom of the grip. Position the joint where your left pinky meets your palm directly underneath the handle of the club. Keep the pinky there and place the first joint in your left forefinger directly underneath the club. Now, do not lift your fingers up, bringing the grip of the club into your palm; instead, hold the handle steady with your left fingers and wrap your palm around the top of the grip. This is an important distinction. Again, don’t wrap the fingers towards the palm, but instead wrap your palm around the top of the club. Now, you should be able to easily place your left thumb directly on top of the club. This should form a V-shape where your left thumb and left forefinger meet. This V-shape should point directly to your right shoulder when it’s complete.
