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?

Headingley Golf Club

Headingley is the oldest golf club in Leeds, in a rural setting just a few miles from the centre of the vibrant city. A heathland style course with a rolling terrain and slick greens, the course has recently been extended by converting the seventh and eighth holes to par 5’s. H.R.H. Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, opened them. Many of the greens have been relaid to USGA standards. The result is a challenging yet enjoyable experience for players of all abilities.

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

Develop Your Artistic Senses (Feel Touch Green-Reading) 325

But any old competition is not good enough. For example don’t play “aces” (which golfers instinctively equate to ramming putts well past the hole when they miss) or “closest-to-the-hole” games on putts of less than 35 feet in length (which teach stopping the ball at the hole 17 inches short of where you want your touch and feel to be focused). Choose games that improve your weaknesses and avoid those that tend to be more destructive than helpful. Remember the most aggressive (and smartest) putters are those who roll makable putts (shorter than 35footers) at the optimum speed to stop 17 inches past the hole if they miss. And the smartest and best lag putters stop the ball dead around the hole. These are the results you want to develop as instinctive in your touch and feel.

13.4 Develop Your Green-Reading Ability

Golfers we have a problem. We don’t read greens well we don’t play enough break in our putts we compensate for this subconsciously in our setups and stroke manipulations and because of these misreads and compensations we miss more putts than we have to miss. We could make more putts if we could get rid of the whole mess start all over learn to read greens properly then use one pure non-compensating stroke for all of our putts.

I keep saying “we” because when I tested 1 500 golfers they all had this problem. And I had it too. The question is do you? There is a simple way to find out by measuring whether you tend to miss regularly above or below the hole.

Measure Then Admit

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

Extract from the book:

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.

4.13 The Best Way to Putt

A quick review. The easiest way to roll balls at controlled speeds on your intended line is to use a True Roller. Mechanically the simplest way to swing a putter along your Aimline is to straddle the line and use a croquet-style putting stroke.

But the best legal way to putt is to take a perfectly fit putter and aim it accurately from a square setup with your feet knees hips shoulder and eye flow-lines aligned parallel-left of your Aimline; put your eyes vertically over the line and your hands vertically under your shoulders; then stroke your putt solidly on the sweetspot with a dead-hands pure-in-line stroke keeping your putterface square to the Aimline (Figure 4.13.1). In the next few chapters you ‘ll learn that if you

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 111 make this stroke in your own body rhythm following a perfect routine and ritual sequence with good touch and feel and play the correct amount of break then you’ve got it.

This pure-in-line-square putting stroke is natural works under pressure minimizes the critical nature of timing and hall position conforms 100 percent to the USGA Rules of Golf and is fundamentally simple to do. I highly recommend it!

Notice that the right elbow becomes locked now as the right arm continues to swing. As you can see the right wrist has started to roll on top of the left wrist. The left elbow is now closer to the body, and is able to bend. The left elbow cannot be completely stopped at the imaginary line, but just a hesitation is enough to let your hands swing through the ball. Notice that the triangle is still present.
