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 18 hole, par 68 golf course is an undulating course on high ground, with generous fairways and having natural hazards, leading to greens of varied character. It is an interesting course which offers a challenge to most golfers, but is also more relaxing for family holiday golf.There are magnificent views from all over the course, but the 16th tee is special, as an almost 360 degree panoramic view embraces the Llyn Peninsula, Cardigan Bay, Cambrian Mountain Range and the summit of Snowdon. No wonder first time visitors ask why we have hidden this gem. We haven’t and welcome you to come and see for yourself. The spectacular views alone are worth half a green fee!!

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

Extract from the book:

Read Greens Better Make More Putts

If you practice this way (without compensations) while simultaneously learning to read greens better you are well on your way to becoming a great putter. This system works because you learn a noncompensating in-line stroke and learn to read greens better at the same time. This system works because when you do both correctly you are rewarded by making more putts. This is in contrast to what has happened over the years to golfers who worked hard to learn simple noncompensating strokes then found they didn’t work (they missed too many putts) when they took them to the golf course and continued to underread the break in their putts. Of course they didn’t realize that their poor green-reading was the cause of the problem.

By being open-minded understanding about subconscious compensations and learning how to putt on greens without them you open the door for your conscious mind to feel free to read the proper (true) break. When you do both (read true break and use noncompensating strokes) you make putts. With accurate (true break) Aimlines when you make better strokes – with no compensations and solid impact a square face angle through impact and better touch – your putts go into the hole. As you continue to practice making noncompensating strokes and the better you read the true break of your putts the more putts you will roll into the center of the hole.

This situation allows you to commit to that simple noncompensating stroke

I talked so much about earlier in the book – the pure-in-line-square stroke: the best easiest and most reliable way to putt. It will work for you now because when you read the true break in putts you no longer need had setup positions and in- stroke compensations to have a chance to make them.

The key then is to learn to read greens more accurately to see the true amount of break your putts will take and at the same time improve your putting stroke mechanics to allow you to make noncompensating strokes on the greens. Throw in developing better touch and feel and all this starts to get really exciting.

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 87 putter to the sweetspot and hold the putterface open to a 45-degree angle to the target with a piece of cardboard (cut the cardboard with equal-length sides A and B at right angles then cut side C between the end points as shown in the inset). Using both hands to hold the face open at that angle and keeping the heel against the wood slide the putter toward the target to simulate a putting stroke (shown from right to left in figure). If you keep the face 45 degrees open the ball will start to the right almost perpendicular to the open face (actually 45 degrees times .83 = 37 degrees) no matter how hard you hit it.

This should convince you that even with the perfect path poor face angle at the moment of impact will start your putts off-line big-time.

Do you still think putter path is as important as face angle? Reposition the piece of wood to produce a path at 45 degrees to the right of your Aimline and hold the putterface square to the Aimline aiming straight at the hole. Again use both hands to control face angle and path and slide the putterface along the edge of the wood. This stroke – with perfect face angle but 45-degree off-line path (Figure 4.8.3) – starts the ball only about 7 degrees off of the Aimline.

So if you are going to make a stroke error of 45 degrees which result would you rather see? A putt off-line by 7 degrees or 37 degrees? I’m sure you now agree with me that if you want to putt consistently along your intended Aimline you’d better learn to keep your putterface angle square to that line (the square face angle advantage of the pils vs. screen-door stroke should

Perfectly Square … Never! now be obvious). And if you have some free time Trying to get your putterface square what part of your stroke are you going to practice? at impact with a screen-door stroke is Right again: Spend at least four times more time like trying to be “exactly on-time.”

You can never do it. You’re either working on keeping the face angle square to your early or you’re late by a minute a sec-Aimline than you do on perfecting your stroke ond a millisecond or a nanosecond.

Please start with the three pictures below. Understand that the point of these pictures is to get your arms and chest connected. You should understand the feeling of “being connected” before you try to incorporate this critical step into your golf swing. If you hold the club straight out in front of you, there will be a triangle formed between your arms and chest. Just focus on keeping the triangle between your arms and chest fixed. Just move your arms with your chest. When your chest stops rotating, your arms also stop. Please see the three pictures below and try it out. Turn to your right, then back around to your left, keeping the triangle between your arms and chest constant at all times.
