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?

Glen Gorse is a very attractive mature parkland course of 6,648 yards from the Medal tees with a par and SSS of 72.Considered as one of the more exacting tests of golfing ability in Leicestershire, the strategically placed trees encountered on every hole mean that the straight hitter will extract the most reward from their round.

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

Extract from the book:

I mprove Your Stroke Mechanics 275 properly when you practice breaking puns: You can’t fool your subconscious and you don’t want to force yourself to follow through down a line that isn’t right. Another feedback device for checking your putter path is the Pathfinder (Figure 12.1.7). Several Tour caddies use these see-through plastic plates so they can

Pathfinder stand behind the golfer close one eye align the bottom circle on the ball and the top circle where he tells you he is aiming. Then watch the putter motion relative to the dashed Aimline running between the two circles.

276 Improve Your Stroke Mechanics give their players accurate practice-round feedback on their stroke paths. The Pathfinder is easy to use: After asking the player where his Aimline is pointing the caddie places the ball in the lower circle and positions the upper circle on the Aimline (directly at the hole on a straight putt). The Pathfinder shows if the putter path moves along the Aimline or off-line.

12.2 Create Stability

For a stable stroke to be consistent (especially under pressure) it must accelerate through impact without the hands providing acceleration. It took me a few years to find a way to teach this before I realized that a smooth pendulum stroke moving at a consistent rhythm accelerates (and is stable) to the midpoint of its swing (that’s the physics of pendulums). So when you create a perfect pendulum stroke motion at your natural body rhythm and contact the ball slightly before the halfway point of that stroke you’ve naturally produced stability through impact. This means that if you centered your stroke motion ahead of the ball your follow-through will be longer than your backswing and acceleration through impact will he assured. And as long as your follow-through is longer than your backswing and your rhythm is smooth your putter will always be stable at impact as shown in Figure 12.2.1. (You ‘ ll still make a slight upward strike by positioning the ball just inside the instep of your lead foot so it is ahead of the bottom of your swing arc.)

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

Extract from the book:

The True Roller is the easiest way to putt because it is as simple as starting the ball on the right line (in the right direction) and at the right speed. But that doesn’t mean it is easy. I know because I use it all the time in my research to determine the right speed and the right line and it can take me many tries to find the perfect release point and direction. But once I’ve got them I can roll the same putt exactly the same way over and over and over again. And ultimately that’s what you want your putting stroke to do. So the True Roller is as close to the ideal as I’ve found.

Shooting Pool

Not quite as easy as the ‘true Roller but fairly close is rolling the ball as if you are shooting pool. In Figure 3.2.2 I ‘m demonstrating this technique on a practice putting green. l’ve actually putted like this a number of times on a number of dif ferent greens and grass types because it proved to me just how important speed is to good putting. When “pool putting ” starting the ball on the chosen line is sim ple but it doesn’t help you choose the line and giving the ball the proper speed is just as difficult as it is when standing up and using your putter. Again this is not a method I think the USGA should allow. I’m merely explaining that it’s not nearly as easy as you might expect it to be. (If you don ‘t believe me get a pool cue and try using it on some breaking putts on your practice green.) Just as with the True

Roller you have to find the right speed if you hope to make anything.

Both of these methods are easier than other types of putting because they remove or at least reduce the difficulty of starting the ball on the desired line. But the pool method for sure (and to a certain extent the True Roller) is just as difficult as most other methods in transferring the correct speed to the ball.

This is a point worth repeating because most golfers don’t think enough about the speed of their putts. Rather they focus on line. If you are a “line” putter try putting with a pool cue or a True Roller and I promise you’ll learn to appreciate the importance of speed in making putts.

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

Extract from the book:

The completed grip with both “V” shapes pointed toward the right shoulder. Note the “V” shapes are parallel with each other.Hopefully, you already have a grip that closely resembles this one. There are some slight variations, but this grip is standard for the most part. It should produce the best results. However, if you have a different grip than this, and you are more comfortable using it, you may continue using it. A grip is hard to change, and this one may feel really uncomfortable to you; however, benefits will come if you embrace this new grip. The “Simple Golf Swing” will most likely provide to you the desired results, even if you use your current grip. However, if you are still having problems when you get through the system, please incorporate the above grip method into your swing.
