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?

Situated in a picturesque area of the Wirral, overlooking the River Mersey, this is a fine test of golf that won’t leave you fatigued or your legs weary. It is a mature parkland course with plenty of natural hazards that will excite you, frustrate you, and if you keep your concentration, ultimately reward you. The greens in particular are well guarded so your iron play will be tested to the full.The par 3s are also tricky to negotiate and you will need to carefully consider the clubs you use from the tee on them. If all of that leaves you in need of a drink, the clubhouse has a great atmosphere to relax in, and the catering facilities offer a full range of snacks and meals.

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

Extract from the book:

Stability and Rhythm: Two Artistic Fundamentals

6.1 Where Science Meets Art

In the old days when I started talking in my schools about acceleration stability and rhythm in putting I realized that I had reached the place where science and art begin to meet. Golfers rarely understand how the concepts of stability and rhythm apply to golf and they think acceleration is something that applies only to race cars.

Even though acceleration is an important aspect of a good putting stroke I no longer talk about it or teach it in our schools because golfers misinterpret it then mess up their strokes as a result. It is a fact that a putter accelerating through impact will maintain club-ball contact for a slightly longer time than will a putter traveling at the same velocity but decelerating at impact. It also is true that the greater the force pulling the shaft and the head of the putter through impact the more stable that clubhead becomes and the more it resists turning and wobbling if the ball isn ‘t hit squarely on the sweetspot. But while both statements would seem to mean that acceleration should be good for putting I have found that teaching it only makes golfers putt worse not better.

It didn’t take me long to figure out the reason. When golfers try to accelerate their putter through impact they instinctively do it with the muscles of their hands and wrists (Figure 6.1.1). But as I mentioned in Chapter 5 golfers who control their putters with their hand muscles will have difficulty performing under pressure. And this is exactly what happened when I taught them to accelerate. At first they saw some success and felt that they were making more putts.

However as soon as they faced any real pressure their adrenaline-strengthened muscles took over and the putts exploded past the hole. As you can imagine it takes only a few explosions to create a fear of the next one so they reverted back to

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

Extract from the book:

Now look at the conversion curve for this group of 15- to 25-handicap golfers (Figure 2.9.3) and the frequency with which they three-putt versus the putt distance (Figure 2.9.4). By comparing these data you can see the importance of making short putts as well as learning that you can save several strokes per round by eliminating three-putts from outside 30 feet. This means that you shouldn’t practice only short putts; the long ones are also important. And you must stop three-putting those long ones if you want to be a good putter.

For those not familiar with “lag putting ” some explanations:

• To lag a putt is to minimize thoughts of holing it instead concentrating on stopping the ball as close to the proper distance and as close to the hole as possible thus minimizing the possibility of three-putting (which is first priority).

Problems on the Greens 31

Lag putters (golfers who always seem to be lagging their putts) usually leave more than half of their putts short which is not good when you are trying to hole the maximum percentage of makable putts (those inside 30 feet). But to be a good lag putter from outside 35 feet is one of putting’s

Focus on using your spine as your axis now. Turn both shoulders and sides directly around your spine. Keep your left arm locked, and your left wrist locked. Although difficult to see from this camera-angle, the triangle is still perfectly in tact.
