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?

Several informal gatherings are held, particularly in the London area, and there are annual golf fixtures against the college. Traditionally an OD team runs the annual House Cross Country competition.

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

Extract from the book:

In the future using this clock image if you perceive you are above the 9 o’clock or 3 o’clock positions on any green (relative to the downhill direction) be careful because you are looking at what we call the downhill slider the most dangerous putt of all. Most golfers under-read the break on a downhill slider and then subconsciously hit the ball too hard trying to keep it on-line. It should come as no surprise that the most frequent three-putting in golf follows downhill-slider first putts.

Green-Reading the 15th Building Block 167

The Subconscious Is Awesome The more I understand the way golfers under-read the break of their putts the more I am in awe of our subconscious minds. It is truly incredible the way the subconscious figures out how to compensate for our inadequate green-reading abilities to push and pull putts without letting us know what we are doing even letting us occasionally make a few putts almost in spite of ourselves.

Just imagine now that you know the relationship between true and visible break if you can somehow read greens well enough to get your subconscious mind working with you (rather than make it fight your green-reading and compensate for it) you might really be able to improve that 15th and final building block of your putting your green-reading. I’ll show you how to make it happen in Chapter 13. Until then let ‘s keep learning how to deal with it. So far you have seen that these indisputable facts about your putting will never change:

So let’s move on and learn more about the realities of the grain of grass plumb bobs and how your mind works in your putting.

50 Methods of Putting

The Pure Pendulum Stroke And that brings us to the simplest easiest most repeatable most reliable and therefore best way to putt – the pure no-hit pendulum stroke. By this I mean a putter swinging in rhythm with the arms and hands with no power input from the hands and wrists whatsoever. If the pendulum is pure and swings down the line with no face rotation it is as simple a motion as can be made under the Rules of Golf. And that’s why it is the method I recommend most often to my students. And I recommend it to you.

To see it in use watch George Archer on the Senior PGA Tour who has produced the purest and best pendulum stroke for the longest period of time of anyone I’ve ever seen (Figure 3.5.12). Over a 20-year period playing against Nicklaus Palmer Player Watson Crenshaw Ballesteros Faldo and Norman Archer holed a higher percentage of his putts than all the rest.

The list of others who make pure-pendulum strokes reads like a who’s who of great putters including Bob Charles Greg Norman Dave Stockton Andy North Loren Roberts and Phil Mickelson (Figure 3.5.13). Having now looked at these great putters and seeing how simple their strokes are doesn’t it make you want to start putting that way? If it does you are reading the right book because my Putting Bible is mostly about why what and how to do it!

Back to what 1 said at the beginning of this chapter: Simpler is better. Because the mechanics of a pendulum motion get the job done and because they are the simplest then they must be the best. And they are the best because they are easier to learn and master than any of the more complex motions.

But be careful because there is not just one single pendulum motion. A pendulum stroke can be swung down the line around the body or across the line. It can be swung with the face rotating or with the face kept square. It can be pushed or pulled or allowed to swing in a consistent natural rhythm.

This is a different view of the complete follow through. Your forearms are crossed, and that is the sign that you have completed the follow-through correctly Keep your head perfectly still during the entire swing This is the last crucial step that you must master. It’s by far the easiest step, but ironically it will produce the most results. The biggest problem is that you don’t always know when you are moving your head. You may find that swinging easier helps keep the head still, but other than that it is just something that you will have to really concentrate on.
