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?

Corhampton Golf Club

Situated in Southern Hampshire, 10 miles south of Winchester in an area of outstanding natural beauty with stunning views of the surrounding woods, hills and valleys. Founded in 1891, both cricket and golf were played on this free draining downland course, which is very rarely closed due to inclement weather.

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

Extract from the book:

Wrap-Up 385

But sometimes a glance is better than a look. When you are in your putting ritual trying to create your perfect-rhythm prestroke motions and don’t want to think or engage the brain in anything other than the feel of repeating your preview stroke a quick glance is better than a focused look. Knowing such differences will advance your putting skills.

Strengthen your mental and management abilities. Organize your practice to work on your weaknesses (while maintaining your strengths) and attend to all 15 building blocks of your putting game. Train your subconscious mind to feel and control your putting while your conscious mind stays busy executing your preview stroke. Build your confidence by forming a clear picture in your mind’s eye of what you are going to do as well as how and when you are going to do it. Once you see and feel how you want to stroke your putt do it (and do it within eight seconds).

Practice Smart

A few final thoughts. Hard work is never enough. Of course hard work is essential for good putting but it is not sufficient. Only smart hard work on the right things and in the right way will help you reach your putting goals (Figure 15.6.3).

If you will embrace the concepts of putting that I have presented in this book getting your arms around all of them not only will you begin to appreciate the skill involved in putting but you also will start enjoying the fruits of your labor when you work on improving. Always keep the big picture in focus. See the forest and the trees: Play the true break and make those noncompensating pure-in-linesquare (pils) strokes.

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

Extract from the book:

Roller you have to find the right speed if you hope to make anything.

Both of these methods are easier than other types of putting because they remove or at least reduce the difficulty of starting the ball on the desired line. But the pool method for sure (and to a certain extent the True Roller) is just as difficult as most other methods in transferring the correct speed to the ball.

This is a point worth repeating because most golfers don’t think enough about the speed of their putts. Rather they focus on line. If you are a “line” putter try putting with a pool cue or a True Roller and I promise you’ll learn to appreciate the importance of speed in making putts.

3.3 It Gets More Difficult

So we’ve disposed of two methods that no one can or should be allowed to use. What about some techniques that have been tried and in some cases are still in use?

Croquet-Style

Next on the “easiness” scale (which means it’s a little more difficult than the techniques above) is standing so you face the putting line and putt croquet-style between your legs. Yes this really has been used. Bob Duden and Bob Shave Jr. two PGA Tour pros who had been struggling with their putting used this technique back in the 1960s. I’ve never been sure whether the USGA banned this method because it was too easy too nontraditional or it just looked bad when viewed from behind. It certainly made putting easier because it gave the golfer the best view of the line before the putt and a clear view of what the ball was doing immediately after it started to roll.

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

Notice that the left elbow is still locked at this point. The elbow is just crossing the imaginary line that you have created between your eyes and your belly button. Remember, try to stop your elbow at this point. This is the point where your wrists will start to flip through the ball.Also notice the angle between the left arm and the club shaft is almost the same as it was at setup.
