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 Woolston manor course was designed using the natural features of the land, in particular the river Roding which meanders throughout the course. As you cross the bridges of the first seven holes you can see numerous types of freshwater fish and in the summer butterflies adorn the second and fifth holes to put you in a relaxing mood at the start of your round.

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

A common result is the unexpectedly weak putt that either doesn’t make it to the hole or breaks dramatically to the low side. If you have this problem or suspect that your hips rotate or slide as you putt practice putting with your hips against a doorjamb (Figure 12.5.4). Just as with the hair drill above it won’t take you long to learn how it feels to not move your hips.

Stand in Cement

Here’s a way to solve all of your lower-body motion problems but it will work only if you have a good imagination and react to visualization. Stand over a putt and imagine that your lower body – from feet to hips – is inside a barrel filled with cement. Then imagine that the cement has hardened solid as a rock. If this image is vivid enough you won’t be able to move your lower body (Figure 12.5.5) when you putt. Try this on a practice green and I’ll bet you leave the first putt short. (I accomplish the same effect in our schools by holding the student’s body still.) Keeping the lower body still robs golfers of power they never knew they were giving to their putts so they leave them short until they learn to putt without the extra motion.

Balance Board if your hips slide forward or away from the hole during the stroke try making putting strokes while standing on a balance board (Figure 12.5.6) keeping it bal

I recommend this device because it’s fun and it gets the golfer to focus on his or her body motion and balance.

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

Extract from the book:

Years ago I created the True Roller a simple ramp device to control the direction and speed of simulated putts (a 1978 photo is shown below). It turns out to be one of the most useful devices I’ve come up with for rolling balls and testing on the greens.

The first True Roller was eight feet long and very cumbersome but later versions have included laser-aiming attachments refined ball-release mechanisms and a level to ensure that the release ramp is always perfectly vertical and releasing balls in a straight line (Figure 2.6.4). The original intent of the True Roller was to simulate putts near the end of their rolls because the initial release of a ball differed from the initial roll of the putted balls (putts start out slightly lofted and sliding along the grass whereas the ball is already rolling as it leaves the True Roller). However after we tested and calibrated the True Roller to simulate putts we found no essential differences in putting results between balls putted versus those released from the True Roller.

You will see many balls and test results from balls rolled from the True Roller in this book. Remember that the True Roller is simply starting each ball in a given direction at the given speed. And that is what putting is all about.

Look next at the top of Figure 2.6.5 which shows how far the same five balls will roll on an uphill putt (released from the True Roller each with the same energy as before). The uphill putts stop closer together (the distance between the longest and shortest balls is 7.5 feet) indicating that on uphill putts balls tend to roll closer to the same distance. This means the roll of an uphill putt is less sensitive to the length of the stroke than putts on a level surface. The lesson is that even if you don’t hit all of your uphill putts the right speed be sure to get them past the hole.

That gives them a chance to go in and the longest ones will probably stop near enough to the hole to leave no-brainers coming back.

Now look at the bottom of Figure 2.6.5 to see how far these same putts roll given the same amount of starting energy on a straight downhill putt. There ‘s a big difference from the level and uphill putts. Of course each downhill putt rolls farther but more important the spread of distances between balls has increased meaning the roll distance is more sensitive to energy input. Now the distance between the longest and shortest balls is 18 feet. So your downhill stroke has to be about three times more precise than your uphill stroke to stop a putt at the right distance. When putting downhill make a stroke of the wrong speed and you’ll have trouble making your next putt.

Position the golf ball in the manner previously described, then stand straight up. Your knees are not locked, but they are close to locked. Your back is perfectly straight. Your chest should be out. It won’t feel right to have your back straight and chest protruding. It will look and feel “exaggeratedâ€
