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?

Denham Golf Club

Denham Golf Club is a traditional private members’ club which has been in existence since 1910. The course was designed and constructed in 1911 by Harry Colt, one of the most prolific of golf course designers and to this day its many special qualities reflect much of this tradition. Being situated on a gravel subsoil the course possesses good draining characteristics.

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

Extract from the book:

First let me clearly define the situation most golfers are in so there can be no misunderstanding. Based on my test data three circumstances are true:

As you can imagine poor green-reading is not something that can be fixed easily. As the three circumstances above now exist they self-perpetuate errors and compensations. (Hey it’s taken more than 400 years to even recognize that there is a problem!) And here ‘s the important fact to remember: Green-reading isn ‘t one problem it ‘s two problems:

You can read all the detail in Chapter 7 but the net effect of the two problems is that the compensations don’t quite make up for the full amount of underread. So most golfers today miss about 85 percent of their putts below the hole without realizing either that such a high percentage miss to the low side or why any one putt misses (they usually blame some mechanical error such as pulling the putt pushing the putt or not hitting it solidly). Then yours truly comes along and points out the mistake they are making. And what happens? Some of them try to correct the situation by solving problem 1 so they play more break miss high get confused and ultimately putt no better and possibly even worse. Or they work on problem 2 try putting accurately (without compensations) on the line they’ve read miss everything low and ultimately putt worse. The result is that in neither case do golfers learn to read the true break or start putting better. They don’t understand how to solve the problems and can’t stand the negative results when they try to.

There is only one way to solve this green-reading problem and that is to correct both problems at the same time.

The Quality of Impact

Before we get there however I want you to learn how important your impact point is to your putting. Look at the impact patterns shown on the following two pages (Figure 4.9.2). These patterns are all authentic test results made by golfers on the first day in our Scoring Game Schools. Note they are arranged by handicap with the lowest handicaps at the top left down to the highest handicaps at the bottom right. Also note that the approximate location of the sweetspot of each putter is indicated by the line near the center of each impact tape.

If you study these patterns carefully the results are clear: The lower the handicap the smaller – and closer to the sweetspot – the impact pattern. In other words the better player hits putts closer to the same area of the putterface. And the best players – the Tour pros – have the smallest impact patterns centered on or very near the sweetspot. In fact looking at the consistent correlation between pattern size and handicap on these pages you might think that impact pattern size was the absolute determinant of a player’s ability to score. Of course this is not true but the implications of this data are undeniable.

There’s a very simple message here: The more consistently a player transfers energy to the ball the better his or her putting touch can become. And the better a golfer ‘ s putting touch the more putts he makes and the lower his handicap. Why? Because consistent transfer of energy enhances one’s ability to control the speed that putts roll which controls not only how far and fast the ball travels and how much it breaks but also the probability of its hitting and staying in the hole.

Proper speed also largely eliminates the chance of three-putting. Above all else good speed control is a requirement for good putting.

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.
