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?

Hazel Grove Golf Club

Situated less than half a mile from the A6, Hazel Grove Golf Club is both highly accessible and hidden away. A short drive up the lane and the hustle and bustle of the main road and urbania is left behind as you relax into the tranquil surroundings of the Club. The parkland course has several natural water hazards running throughout and further hazards are created by the many trees which define each hole. The 15th is the signature hole which is dominated by a large sweeping pond. From a slightly elevated tee you have a full view of the hazard which runs adjacent to the fairway and across the front and down the left hand side of the green. Your mind is further concentrated by the out-of-bounds which runs along the right hand edge of the fairway. You now have to make a decision – lay up, or take on the green – a great risk-reward hole. The course measures 6,263 yards, par 71 for gentlemen and 5,370 yards, par 71 for ladies. All 18 holes have USGA specification greens and superb drainage makes play possible for 52 weeks of the year without a temporary green in sight.

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

Extract from the book:

How Times Change ing the ball to follow perfectly the path’s direction.

About 25 years ago when I got into

Of course such a putter would be illegal and the golf business full-time one of the no one wants golfers to make every putt regardless major golf-equipment manufacturers became tremendously successful of their skill. But when you realize that golfers selling heel-toe-weighted putters practice their stroke path while having no idea by promoting their specially heat-how to improve face angle through impact (and treated harder faces. In the last few back in section 4.8 I showed how face angle has a years that same manufacturer has much stronger effect than path on putting sucswitched to making and promoting cess) the thought of a softer high-friction puttingputters with soft-material face in- face that conforms to the Rules of Golf creates serts again with great success. some interest.

More soft-face theory can be found in the many ads for putters that have a soft insert. These ads promote their putters’ “soft er feel ” “better roll ” and “greater control.” In looking at test data to see whether or not a softer face really does make a difference in how accurately the ball follows the putter’s path I saw no measurable difference in putt direction off faces of plas tic wood steel and copper (within the accuracy tolerances of the test setup). But this is only one test and we will refine our procedures and improve the accuracy. I will report the results when they become available but until then I’m very com fortable saying that while soft-faced putters may feel and sound better those on the market today won’t make large differences in the direction your putts roll. If these faces do have a significant benefit other than a more solid sound (which is nice) it’s probably in lessening the dimple effect as discussed in section 9.10.

The bottom line: Run your own tests of different putting materials to see if one works better for you on short putts while preserving your feel for distance on long putts. No one can do this for you so take a little time visit your golf professional or local golf shop and test a bunch of different putters for yourself.

This is an often overlooked element of putter-fitting because many golfers don’t think it’s about the putter at all. Also since the golf ball doesn’t care how comfort able you are you could argue that your comfort is unimportant. However all other things being equal the more comfortable you are while practicing putting the longer you’ll practice and the better your putting will become (assuming you’re practicing properly). Your putter should be fit so you can be physically comfortable enough to practice sufficiently to learn to love and trust it on the course.

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

Extract from the book:

There is one last ingredient I ‘ve yet to touch on in this long list of putting factors. And that is the mind. How important is the mind when putting? You can’t move the golf ball even 1/32 of an inch with just your mind. Your mind doesn’t hold the putter. However that doesn’t mean the mind has no power because the mind can stop your body from accomplishing something in a heartbeat. Your mind must believe you can make a putt at least that the possibility exists . . . or you won’t. You must realize that of course you “can” make the putt. It really is possible. Always remember what one of my favorite putters in the whole world (Dave Stockton) said to me: “I never met a putt I couldn’t make.”

Your mind controls your body your body controls your putter and the way you swing your putter controls the starting conditions of your putt. And controlling a putt’s starting conditions is all any golfer can do. None of us can control the conditions on the green the wind footprints or Lady Luck. All we can do is get our mind to let us put the best possible stroke on the ball; then we have to live with whatever happens.

So forget using your conscious mind to help your putting. What you want working for you is your subconscious mind that part that handles images and memories. Of course the first time you try something you need your conscious mind to think about it. But after you’ve made good strokes and holed putts many times it can become a habit totally and completely controlled without any conscious thought. That’s when putting becomes controlled by the subconscious mind.

Now how do you do this? By far the most important thing in your mind prior to the putting stroke should be an image in your mind’s eye of the stroke you want to make. This should he a clear picture – based on your observations reading of the green and knowledge of the conditions – first of what the putt is going to do and then how you are going to stroke it so it does exactly that. The subconscious sees this stroke image and uses it to tell the body what to do. Obviously you want this image to be of a good stroke and to be clear strong and proper so it gets the right idea to the body about executing a good putting stroke.

The importance of this image is something we deal with in depth in our schools. We go to great lengths to get golfers to see and feel in their mind’s eye what their perfect strokes are going to be like before they try to make them. Because once you see and know exactly what you are trying to do and have a clear picture of it in your mind’s eye it is so much easier to do it.

The basic idea is to keep your conscious mind busy seeing your perfect stroke during your practice swings as a way to build your confidence and form a clear picture in your mind’s eye. Once you see and feel how you want to stroke your putt the trick becomes simply keeping your conscious mind busy and out of the way (for example thinking about your preshot ritual) so your subconscious can do its thing. Our procedure for developing this skill and our recommended drills and practice techniques to ingrain it are detailed in Chapters 11 and 13.

Now that you have the proper grip with your left hand, we can focus on the right hand. Take your right hand and place it underneath the handle of the club. Lift up your left forefinger from underneath the club so it can move freely. Interlock your right picky with your left forefinger.
