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?

Congleton Golf Club

Congleton Golf Club was founded in 1898 when a group of some 20 gentlemen enthusiasts met at the Lion & Swan and decided that ‘Congleton should have a course and that its locality should be not west of the Lion & Swan and near to the railway’.The first course was believed to be sited near to Congleton Railway Station . This site was considered ‘unsuitable’ in 1904 and the Club found a new site at Mossley Hall Estate and remain there to this day. The original design and layout was the work of Frank Wingate.Various changes to the course took place over the years and in particular there was a major change to the layout in 1931. A new Clubhouse was built in 1967, with a further extension in the later 1990’s.

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

Extract from the book:

ii. Routine for creating a preview stroke.

iii. Ritual to use for creating rhythm and timing. eye tells you the ball track starting on that

Aimline is the one. Commit to it and there is only one thing left to determine the feel of your preview stroke to produce that ball track.

Wrap-Up 371

You can learn to recognize the slopes and speeds of green surfaces at a glance with proper training. The force of gravity is a constant no matter where in the world you are. Reality exists and every putt has an “optimum ” ball-track speed Aimline and true break. Best of all once the mysteries and myths about putting have been removed learning to correlate the combination of slope green speed and putt speed is an understandable and learnable skill. It is as learnable to you as it is to any Tour professional but only if you have the proper training and feedback.

And I assure you the better you learn the skills of putting and the more accurately you “see” the true break and ball-tracks of your putts the more putts you will make.

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 77

The Simplest Pendulum

To examine the putting stroke of vertical pendulum A look at Figure 4.6.9 where the golfer’s hands hang vertically below his shoulders. On the left of this photo the attached putter hangs vertically below the hands which looks a bit strange. But stay with me. If the golfer now swings his arms straight hack along the line of this intended putt lets them relax and then swings them through – guided simply by the force of gravity – the putterface would swing perfectly along the line of this putt (Figure 4.6.9A’). This path is purely in-line along the Aimline just like pendulum A with no side forces or path curvature.

By starting with the putterface square to the line and using this pure-in-line stroke the ball would have to start rolling on that line. The pendulum swings this way because gravity is the only force acting on the stroke: There are no rotating forces to turn the putterface away from the target line and no side forces to push the putter off the straight Aimline path.

Now imagine a minor modification to this putter a lightweight but much longer face (Figure 4.6.9A`’). With this change the putter would still swing perfectly in-line beneath the shoulders and there still is nothing to cause rotation or circular motion in the stroke. In Figure 4.6.9A’ we’ve added a lightweight but rigid connection from the grip to the putterface near its toe. Assuming this connection is truly lightweight and doesn’t change the putter’s balance the swing path still would not change still would not rotate and would naturally continue to swing in-line along the straight line path beneath the shoulders.

Finally having seen how this putter swings with both shafts now look what happens when the vertical part of the shaft is removed in Figure 4.6.9A”. By removing the original vertical shaft (which hung under the hands) and the back of the putterface we have turned this into a normal-looking putter which still swings in a pure-in-line path as before. This face (again assuming the putter was balanced perfectly) will not rotate open or closed and will not swing or curve around the body. The natural swinging motion of this putter will be purely in-line along a line exactly parallel to his shoulder line. In other words this putter path will track right down the Aimline the intended line of the putt.

Golf Swing Tips

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

Extract from the book:

Golf Tuition Congleton Golf Club

The chest and shoulders shouldn’t be turning, unless your arms are turning with them. In other words, you want to start your swing with a shoulder turn, but your arms should start swinging at EXACTLY the same time. They are an extension. They are connected. Furthermore, your arms shouldn’t be swinging unless your chest is rotating. Don’t start swinging your arms without starting the shoulder turn. They are connected. Your left elbow remains locked throughout the entire swing. When you complete your shoulder turn, your arms should stop as well. The goal will be to have your left arm exactly parallel to the ground. Your elbow is still locked. When it gets there…STOP. Do not continue to swing your arms.
