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?

Forest Of Galtres Golf Club

Welcome to Forest of Galtres Golf Club Web Site. This parkland golf course is situated in the heart of the ancient Forest of Galtres, just two miles from the northern section of the ring road around the historic city of York. From the seventh green, York Minster is visible to the south, and to the north, 20 miles away, one can see the White Horse of Kilburn on the Hambleton Hills. The rural and peaceful nature of this ancient forest area, with its mature oak trees, has been enhanced by much additional tree planting.

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

Extract from the book:

Ray’s experience is a good lesson to all golfers: If you can’t practice with a putter don’t even think about using it when the heat is on. So while comfort isn’t everything especially when you first try a putter it ‘s not something to be ignored.

Commitment

Something else you can learn from Raymond Floyd’s experience is that you must commit to practice with and stay with a putter for an extended period of time before it can become your best friend. I don’t have proof of this but I have enough circumstantial evidence that it’s something golfers should consider. The great putters stick with their putters for a reason. George Archer Ben Crenshaw Loren Roberts and Bob Charles always seem to use their old favorite putters (Figure 11.6.21). Why? Results. These old reliables fit them let them make repeatable strokes and let

262 Establish Your Practice Framework

The world’s great putters stick with their favorite putting tools over the years. You should too. them hone their good putting habits (such as square face alignment at the moment of impact) to a fine tolerance.

The opposite example is that of Arnold Palmer who late in his career took at least a dozen putters to the course with him every day. During his warm-up if he made a few putts with one it was in the bag for the day. No matter that the shaft and grip were different and the sweetspot was in a different place (relative to his hands) than on the putter he used the day before. I love and have great respect for Arnold Palmer as a person and a player and it took amazing athletic gifts to do what he did (particularly with the putting stroke he had). But I wish Arnold had learned to putt with a simpler stroke and stayed with one putter so he could have putted even better for even longer.

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

Extract from the book:

Finally “Flow good will your putting be in the future?” That depends on your ability to learn the mechanics of a better putting stroke your ability to learn better putting feel and touch your ability to learn to read greens better and your ability to produce the right stroke at the right time. Depending on your lifestyle your determination and intensity your focus your self-discipline and practice habits and your ability to learn only you can provide this answer.

For most golfers to improve their scores it is often easier to reduce their number of three-putts than it is to increase their number of one-putts. This is generally true for golfers with handicaps greater than 20 although it is even true for some very fine lower-handicap players. As you can see in Figure 2.9.1 the length of the most frequent first putt on greens hit from outside 60 yards is 38 feet. (This distance varies a little with the handicap of the players measured but obviously there are many more long first putts than short ones.) This figure also shows that the most frequent first putt to follow shots hit from inside 60 yards is an 18-footer. If you combine these two curves and add in all the second and third putts that become necessary after the first putt is missed you can see a typical value for the number of putts of each length golfers face per round over a season of golf (Figure 2.9.2).

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

The “Simple Golf” Swing: “Golf for the Rest of Us”

Extract from the book:

This is the final setup position. The back is still straight. All you need to do is bend at the waist until the club touches the ground. As you can see, the arms are still stretched out, and the hands are hanging straight down from the shoulders. They seem lower than waist-level, but the relationship between the arms and chest has not changed. Your legs remain in a fixed position, while you move the arms and chest together to the ball. This is the key to a good, simple setup.
