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?

The course is 18 holes occupying some 150 acres of rolling Cheshire countryside. From the men’s white tees it measures 6414 yards with a par and standard scratch of 71, consisting of 2 par 5s, 3 par 3s and 13 par 4s. From the ladies red tees the course measures 5489 yards with a par of 72, consisting of 3 par 5s, 3 par 3s and 12 par 4s.A “halfway house” by the 11th tee is used to provide light refreshments on selected competition days and weekends.The practice ground is 300 yards long by 200 yards wide and provides ample opportunity for players to loosen up before starting their round, or to re-groove their swing with assistance from the Pro. The practice ground includes a practice green for practising chipping and bunkers shots.There are practice putting and chipping greens near the 1st tee.All greens apart from the 3rd are played all year round. A winter green (the old 1st green) provides protection from play on the actual 3rd green, which is subject to long periods of frost during the winter due to its shaded position close to the perimeter stream.

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

Extract from the book:

The more you practice putting poorly the more consistently poorly you will putt. And I say the more you deserve it.

My rules of putting practice are listed below. If you don’t believe them you are in for a lot of trouble in trying to improve.

Only perfect practice can lead you toward putting perfection. And while you’ll never get there I see no reason why you shouldn’t keep trying for it. Be smart enough to practice exactly the way you want to putt under pressure and always include the glue (your routine your ritual and your rhythm) for transferring your practice to the course.

378 Wrap-Up

You must be careful. Even the balls and putting greens can fool you lying to you too often on your putt results. Your aim setup and stroke mechanics must be learned then refined away from the greens and the hole with feedback. Fortunately everyone regardless of age can learn to putt better and even better ways to learn will be with us in the not-too-distant future.

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

Extract from the book:

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.

Both of these views provide critically important feedback that golfers generally miss when putting in the conventional style (that is standing to the side of the line). Croquet-style putting has other benefits: It removes all rotational motion of the forearms (which opens and closes the putterface during conventional putting) it forces the wrists to remain solid (no breakdown) and it creates the perfect in-line stroke path straight down the intended putting line.

Croquet putting is so easy that it was used by no less a legend than Sam Snead in the mid-1960s (when he was in his mid-fifties) to counter a case of the yips. Snead actually putted this way (Figure 3.3.1) – with one foot on either side of the target line – during the 1966 PGA Championship where he finished tied for sixth. Perhaps it was seeing the great Samuel Jackson Snead putt from the wrong direction or perhaps it was deemed to reduce the skill required to play the game – in any case croquet-style putting was quickly outlawed by golf’s powers that be.

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

Here is a view from the front. The goal of this photo is to show that there is no lateral movement. Simply rotating your right shoulder around your spine.*Please note that you should NOT be cocking your wrists at the end of your backswing. While this may add a bit of power, it will totally throw off your timing. The results of a wrist cock are slices, hooks, fat shots, etc.
