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 club has around 800 members in total across all sections, and of these about 100 are single-figure players, which speaks volumes about the standard of player the course attracts. At 6231 yards, it is not a long course. However, it does offer a fair and interesting test of golf, requiring accurate shots in order to score well.Thanks to its excellent drainage, the course is rarely closed due to rain, though obviously thunderstorms pose the same threat here as anywhere else! Temporary greens are also seldom used unless there’s an early morning frost. Occasionally, though, a mist rolls in from the Channel, and so checking the local weather forecast is advisable, particularly if travelling any distance to play here.

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

Extract from the book:

Know Don ‘ t Guess

You can know not guess the length of your putts by walking them off. If you don’t think this precision is important to your putting touch think about this. On your next 40-foot uphill putt as you stand behind your ball making your preliminary touch stroke for distance do you want to think that it’s “about” 37 feet uphill because that’s what it looks like or know that it’s exactly 40 feet uphill? That may not seem like much but being off by three feet takes you outside the six-foot circle around the hole that you want to find with long putts. And that can be the difference between a tap-in second putt and a knee-knocking four- or six-footer for a save.

For the benefit of your long-term touch development walk off both practice putts and real putts on the course. Remember distance recognition is incredibly important to your touch and if you’re going to hone your stroke recognition

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

Extract from the book:

Your mind controls your body your body controls your putter and the way you swing your putter controls the starting conditions of your putt. And controlling a putt’s starting conditions is all any golfer can do. None of us can control the conditions on the green the wind footprints or Lady Luck. All we can do is get our mind to let us put the best possible stroke on the ball; then we have to live with whatever happens.

So forget using your conscious mind to help your putting. What you want working for you is your subconscious mind that part that handles images and memories. Of course the first time you try something you need your conscious mind to think about it. But after you’ve made good strokes and holed putts many times it can become a habit totally and completely controlled without any conscious thought. That’s when putting becomes controlled by the subconscious mind.

Now how do you do this? By far the most important thing in your mind prior to the putting stroke should be an image in your mind’s eye of the stroke you want to make. This should he a clear picture – based on your observations reading of the green and knowledge of the conditions – first of what the putt is going to do and then how you are going to stroke it so it does exactly that. The subconscious sees this stroke image and uses it to tell the body what to do. Obviously you want this image to be of a good stroke and to be clear strong and proper so it gets the right idea to the body about executing a good putting stroke.

The importance of this image is something we deal with in depth in our schools. We go to great lengths to get golfers to see and feel in their mind’s eye what their perfect strokes are going to be like before they try to make them. Because once you see and know exactly what you are trying to do and have a clear picture of it in your mind’s eye it is so much easier to do it.

The basic idea is to keep your conscious mind busy seeing your perfect stroke during your practice swings as a way to build your confidence and form a clear picture in your mind’s eye. Once you see and feel how you want to stroke your putt the trick becomes simply keeping your conscious mind busy and out of the way (for example thinking about your preshot ritual) so your subconscious can do its thing. Our procedure for developing this skill and our recommended drills and practice techniques to ingrain it are detailed in Chapters 11 and 13.

4.13 The Best Way to Putt

A quick review. The easiest way to roll balls at controlled speeds on your intended line is to use a True Roller. Mechanically the simplest way to swing a putter along your Aimline is to straddle the line and use a croquet-style putting stroke.

Now that you have the proper grip with your left hand, we can focus on the right hand. Take your right hand and place it underneath the handle of the club. Lift up your left forefinger from underneath the club so it can move freely. Interlock your right picky with your left forefinger.
