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?

Cooden Beach Golf Club’s Course is both a fun and good test of golf for every class of player. For the young and strong there are nine holes which exceed 400 yards in length, whilst for the older golfer the undulations are gentle and the springy turf pleasant to walk on.The dykes, ponds and bunkers will catch the wayward shot but the real hazard is the wind, which makes it a different course every time it is played.

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

Extract from the book:

Let’s Ignore It

It sometimes amazes me that golfers make as many putts as they do. Even though most golfers see or read less than 30 percent of a putt’s true break they never miss by the other 70 percent. n fact most golfers come pretty close to making most of their putts. Their compensations therefore are very good and since they are subconsciously controlled seem very easy.

Which explains the response I often get from the golfer who is beginning to understand the problem which is “I don’t want to deal with it.” He says “If I’m compensating so well and my subconscious is doing such a good job why not let it be?”

The answer is simple. If you learned to read the proper (true) amount of break you’d make more putts. You could use the same noncompensating stroke for all your putts. And learning to repeat one stroke for the rest of your golf career

Green-Reading the 15th Building Block 151 is much simpler and easier than trying to execute a different stroke with a different in-stroke compensation on every new putt. The truth is the more you compensate – that is the larger your compensations become – the less accurate your putting results will he.

Let me say it again: By under-reading putts you are requiring your subconscious to compensate by a different amount on every putt. That means your body must make a different stroke on every putt on every green. And there is no way you (or any golfer) can learn to properly execute a different stroke with different compensations on every putt nearly as well as you can learn to groove and repeat one stroke (one with absolutely no compensations) for all of those putts.

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

Your impact point – where you tently square when you need it! make contact with the ball – is even more important still!

The point of contact between your putter and the ball determines how much energy is transferred to the ball at the moment of impact. And the amount of energy your putts receive determines both how fast and far the balls will roll and how much your putts will break. Most golfers believe the distance their putts roll is determined strictly by the length and force of their swing. That’s true only if they transfer a consistent percentage of energy from putter to ball at impact. And that is seldom the case.

The Sweetspot

A common term in sports is “sweetspot.” Tennis players talk about hitting the sweetspot of the racquet; baseball players like to crack the ball on the sweetspot of the bat. Why? Because when contact is made there it feels good and maximum energy is transferred to the ball. The same is true for a putter in golf: The sweet-spot is that place where contact feels the most solid which eliminates all rotation and wobble of the putterhead at impact (Figure 4.9.1) and which transfers the maximum energy possible from the stroke to the ball. If you do everything correctly your impact point will be the sweetspot of your putter.

It is possible to miss the sweetspot either in the vertical plane (hitting the ball too high or too low on the face) or the horizontal plane (making contact toward the toe or the heel of the putter). Any of these misses by as little as a fraction of an inch results in a mis-hit and a loss of energy. But you don’t need to worry because in Chapter 12 I will show you how to measure and mark your putter sweetspot and then learn to hit the ball there repeatedly and consistently.

Now just line everything up with that item and fire away. This method won’t cure all of your alignment problems, but it does give you a simple way to assure that you are on the right path. Many students have the habit of lining up way left or way right of the target. When the ball goes where they are “aiming”, they think they have a problem. If your ball consistently goes left or right of target, but flies straight, then your problem is your alignment. Try this simple method before every shot on the course and you’ll definitely drop a few strokes.
