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?

With two magnificent 18 hole golf courses Dale Hill’s well established Old Course is rich in wildlife and mature woodland. With stunning views across the Sussex Weald, this course features a splendid mix of individual holes. Since opening the 5856 yard, par 69 old course in 1973 it has become one of the south east’s foremost golf courses. The front nine is parkland whilst the back nine is heavily wooded, challenging even for the more experienced golfer.Constructed in 1997 to USGA specifications our Ian Woosnam designed course is a par 72, 6512-yard course demanding and rewarding accuracy off the tee. The opening hole is one for the big hitters – a 600-yard par five demanding a long and accurate tee shot before sweeping down towards the first green. There are many spectacular challenges throughout the course including the 16th, a tightly wooded hole across a deep, vegetation filled gully requiring an unerring shot up over a rough-filled gully to a tricky green. With its scenic views weaving across the High Weald the compulsory buggy is a welcome addition to playing the course as you head for the Clubhouse. The 10th According to Woosnam, “The course has been designed to have the perfect balance – tough enough for the pros and easy enough for the amateurs – and can be enjoyed by all.”

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

Extract from the book:

Wearing such a device (there are many aids that serve this purpose) during any of the drills discussed in this chapter will allow you to feel the motion of a solid pendulum stroke. After a few sessions you will begin to forget you have the Putt Triangle between your arms because when you keep your putting triangle constant you generate no feedback from this device. A sure way to accomplish this is

The Putt Triangle provides feedback if you change the relative positions of your hands wrists arms or elbows.

300 Improve Your Stroke Mechanics to combine this practice with sessions featuring the Track and the Truthboard being sure to make your strokes to the cadence and rhythm of your metronome.

Left-Hand-Low Grip (or Lead-Hand-Low)

The best way right-handed golfers can stop their right-hand wrist from supplying unwanted power to the stroke – as they usually do when they break down the left wrist – is to use the left-hand-low-clamp grip popularized by Bernhard Langer (Figure 12.5.10). After switching to this grip early in his career he has played in 17 Masters tournaments (winning twice) was the world’s leading money winner (1993) played on nine European Ryder Cup teams and brought his worldwide victory total to more than 60. His left wrist never broke down once during all the strokes it took to accomplish these feats so don’t think this isn’t a great way

Place your lead (left for right-handed golfers) hand below the trailing hand on your grip. This moves the trailing hand from a position of power to one of submission during the stroke meaning it won’t control either the power or direction of your putt if it tries to add any adrenaline-aided power. This position also eliminates the tendency for the trailing hand (usually the more powerful of the two) to force the wrist of the lead hand to break down and pull putts.

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

Extract from the book:

Methods of Putting 47 “block-strokes” better than Lee Trevino.

Every part of Lee’s game is built on aiming to the left then blocking his swing through impact so it’s little surprise he does this when putting too. In my opinion Trevino is another great player who achieved greatness in spite of his putting not because of it. And he agrees: Lee told me that if he had putted as well as Jack Nicklaus you might never have heard of the Golden Bear.

I believe him. He has always been a great ball-striker (the best I ever measured) and he putted reasonably well but never great. He is a very talented player who did well with a somewhat complex putting stroke. But he would have putted better and won more with a better (which to me means simpler) putting stroke.

Next on my list of strokes (still moving toward simplicity) is the “blend” stroke a combination of the power stroke and a pure pendulum stroke usually employing a slight wrist hinge. A number of fine players putt this way including Brad Faxon Lee Janzen D. A. Weibring and Ben Crenshaw (Figure 3.5.9). Every one of these players is a wonderful putter and every one uses a predominantly pendulum motion with just a little bit of power provided by the hand muscles.

The small amount of wrist hinge each employs is done down the line so it doesn’t cause directional difficulty. When I’ve asked them about this motion they all say that their best putting days come when the stroke is more pendulum and less wrist. More proof that simplicity is the key ingredient in good putting.

The “right-hand push ” or “push stroke ” used by Jack Nicklaus has been a repeatable reliable performer for a long time. A friend once told me that Jack really wasn’t that good a player: He was just on a 30-year hot streak! Indeed Jack has putted consistently well throughout most of his career. Even today Jack’s putting remains unshakable perhaps the strongest part of his game.

Look at Figure 3.5.10 and you can see his right arm and hand arc behind the left pushing the putter through impact like a piston firing straight down the line. There is no putter rotation no forearm rotation and no wrist breakdown through the impact zone. The push stroke at its best and Jack at his best are and were almost unbeatable.

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

Extract from the book:

Golf Tuition Dale Hill Golf Club

Keep focusing on bringing your right shoulder back and around your spine. Some of you may be able to turn about 90 degrees around your spine as shown in the picture on the left. Others may only be able to turn 45 degrees around your spine. Either is okay, but do not start moving other parts of the body to compensate for not being able to make a full shoulder turn. Stop when it gets uncomfortable. The important part is to STAY CONNECTED. When your left arm becomes parallel to the ground, stop your swing.
