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?

This beautiful Palladian mansion is surrounded by over 200 acres of a secluded estate. Although only 12 miles from central London and barely 2 miles from the A1, it is located in the heart of green belt country and has a welcoming air of tranquillity and relaxation.Designed by Robert Trent Jones, the 6,428 yard long (SSS71) parkland course is often described as one of the outstanding courses in the South of England.Picturesque and superbly maintained, it presents a challenging but playable course to golfers of all handicapsThe natural beauty of the Hertfordshire countryside serves as a superb backcloth to each and every hole, many of which are enhanced by the proximity of waterOur signature hole for example, the 7th, is a real percentage hole. The brave take on the 220 yards carry over the magnificent lake full of wild bird life (and the inevitable golf balls). The shorter route to the right leaves a more difficult line to the bunker protected green.

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

246 Establish Your Practice Framework

You Must Commit

So you have a putter with the lie angle and shaft length that fit your posture. And you like how it looks and feels at impact. Now before you begin an improvement program you must make a promise to yourself. You must commit to using that putter and no other for at least six months.

That’s right. I want you to stick with this putter for at least the first six months that you start working seriously on any part of your putting especially stroke mechanics. You’re going to go through a lot of changes as your brain receives the feedback from your improving knowledge and stroke and I don’t want it confused with anything that doesn’t really matter. So pick a putter get it fit (professionally is always best) and promise to stay with it through thick and thin as you learn to putt with it.

The Long Putter

How do you know whether or not you’d putt better with a long-shafted putter (Figure 11.6.4)? Give one a try and not for just two or three putts. Work with one for several half-hour sessions. The long putter offers several advantages over ones of standard length: There’s no breakdown of the wrist joint during the stroke and there’s no rotating of the forearms so golfers are less likely to try controlling the putterface.

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.

Notice that the right elbow becomes locked now as the right arm continues to swing. As you can see the right wrist has started to roll on top of the left wrist. The left elbow is now closer to the body, and is able to bend. The left elbow cannot be completely stopped at the imaginary line, but just a hesitation is enough to let your hands swing through the ball. Notice that the triangle is still present.
