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 Park Golf Club

Forest Park Golf Club is in the village of Stockton on the Forest 3 miles north east of the historic and beautiful city of York. Forest Park is an easy walking, 27 hole, parkland course, with tree lined fairways and the Old Foss Beck which creates a natural hazard on many of the holes.

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

Extract from the book:

Face Your Special Problems 347 that of the higher-handicapper’s pattern. This improvement while only by a factor of two drastically reduces the frequency of three-putting for these players.

How great is this improvement? It ‘s between three and five shots per round. And there is an additional benefit too. If you can decrease the size of your lag-putt pattern by a factor of two you’ll make four times as many of those putts. Decrease the pattern size by a factor of three and you’ll hole nine times more putts. (The probability of lag putts finding the hole is proportional to the ratio of the hole radius to the radius of your lag-putt pattern squared.) Although this won’t change your score as much as eliminating your three-putts (because the probability of making these long putts is small to begin with) it ‘s always nice to hole a long one now and then.

As I have asked you to do several times in this book it’s time again to measure something about your game. The question is: Do you have a three-putting problem? Do you three-putt on average more than once per round? If you do that qualifies as a problem. Keep track of your three-putts on your scorecard at the same time you mark your above (A) and below (B) putting misses. Count up your total number of three-putts over 10 rounds add them all together divide by 10 and come up with your average number of three-puns per round. Compare this number with one three-putt every four rounds of golf which is what the touring professionals average.

You don’t have to three-putt often. I’ve worked with PGA Tour players who ( when putting well) three-putt only five to 10 times all year while playing 72 holes almost every week on some of the most difficult courses and greens in the world. How do you think they do it? They practice hard hit their puns consistently solidly on the sweetspot and convert their short putts. If they can do it you can too.

The lag-putt drills in section 13.2 can take care of your three-putt problems specifically (1) Stepping Off Distances (page 304); (2) the Triangle Drill (page 306); (3) Edge-of-Green Drill (page 306); (4) Playing Draw-Back for putts over 35 feet (page 307); (5) Chiputting (page 309); and (6) Playing the Phony-Hole Drill over level changes (page 311). If you spend enough practice time playing or executing these drills 1 assure you this will at least minimize and maybe even eliminate your three-putt problem.

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics

4.1 First Some Definitions In this and the next three chapters I will discuss the 15 building blocks of putting what they are how they work and what they mean to your ability to roll your puns into the hole. First I’ll list them all here (Figure 4.1.1) then define a few terms to enable us to keep our communications straight. Then I ‘ll jump in by detailing the seven blocks that deal with putting stroke mechanics.

Defining How the Ball Rolls

Before getting into the mechanics of the putting stroke I’ll define some vocabulary which will help keep things simple and easy to understand throughout the book. In our Scoring Game Schools we routinely use words or phrases that you may not be familiar with. We do this because we’ve found that many golfers refer to the same things using different terms and sometimes use the same terms to describe different things.

Obviously this can lead to unnecessary confusion and disagreement. It helps to be more explicit in how you describe and define some of these concepts. For ex ample my staff and I never talk about “putting to there ” or putting “that way.”

As you can see in the image to the left, the back remains straight while bending over to the ball. All of the bending is done at the hips. Bending at the waist and keeping a straight back will promote great ball flight and consistency. The relationship between the arms and chest has not changed.
