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?

8 miles north of Blackpool and 1 mile south of the port of Fleetwood, the course offers a tough challenge for those who wish to travel from inland courses and experience the game under coastal conditions just as they may have done in 1421 before parkland courses were introduced.The balcony of the imposing clubhouse overlooks 16 of the 18 holes and offers spectacular and breathtaking views of both the Lake District and Morecambe Bay. On summer evenings members & visitors lingering over a cold drink are afforded unrivalled views of the Isle of Man with the setting sun as a panoramic backdrop.The course itself is a testing championship length of 6500 yards with prevailing winds being a major factor in how the course plays from day to day. Designed by James Steer and opened in 1932 Fleetwood is a very long and dry course playing the back 9 holes inside the front 9 with large greens and bunkers galore. The 3rd, 5th & 7th run parallel to the sea wall with the Irish Sea less than 25 yards from the out of bounds on the left.The signature hole is the 176 yard par 3 8th which is rated by many as one of the toughest links par 3 in the North West. Ronan Rafferty the tour professional commenting on a visit to the course said “I have never seen 175 yards look so far away”

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

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
