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?

Hesketh Golf Club

Set amidst the towering Victorian villas of Southport’s premier residential area – Hesketh Park – is The Hesketh Golf Club, the town’s oldest golf club, founded in 1885. Standing alone on the crest of a tall sandhill, the clubhouse dominates the golf course, and the surrounding district. The course is at the northern end of south-west Lancashire`s sand dune system, which is the home of so many great golf courses. Professional championship golf has been played on these famous old links from the club`s earliest days, and the course is regularly used as a final qualifying course when The Open is played at Royal Birkdale.Venue of the 2008 World Junior Open Championship

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

Extract from the book:

This isn’t as complex or confusing as it sounds. Green-reading isn’t physics: Anyone can learn to do it. You’ve already been looking at and seeing all these things every time you putt. But you’ve been interpreting them incorrectly and making your subconscious deal with trying to make things right. The truth is the better you read (see the break in) greens and the less your subconscious has to compensate the better you will putt. If you take the trouble to improve how you “see” greens and break as I ‘ve outlined above you will begin to read greens better.

And now comes the companion step: If you also learn how to putt without unnecessary compensations you’ll be on your way to great putting.

Eliminate In-Stroke Compensations Be Careful What You

Golfers don’t understand what line their putts Teach Yourself The golfer who reads a putt to break start on because they are looking down as they three inches pulls it up the slope putt. They don’t see their ball’s starting direction nine inches above the hole (without then when they do look up they assume their ball knowing he pulled it) and holes it is rolling on the line they aimed at and started it condemns himself to a future of poor on. However due to their in-stroke compensa putting when he says “See I made tions and gravity (which always pulls putts down- it. I knew it broke three inches and it hill) neither assumption is correct. If you are ever did. My read must have been perfect. to solve the problem of these unwanted compen-My stroke may not always be great sations in your setup and your stroke (which you but the one thing I can really do well is read greens.” probably have on all breaking putts) you must learn to practice without them.

How do you establish a “no-compensations-allowed” condition of practice? It’s simple. You’ve already read how to practice indoors using the putting Track Putter Rails Straws and the Truthboard . All of these devices help you learn to orient your stroke to your Aimline and show if you make any compensations. The next step is to take the same approach outdoors on the putting green. Orient your stroke to start all your putts on an Elevated Aimline and don’t allow any compensations to take hold.

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

Extract from the book:

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 105 right or wrong way to hold a putter for all golfers. But there is a best way for each golfer to hold his or her putter. This best way will lead to making the best stroke the greatest percentage of the time.

The grip that makes it easiest for most people to produce a pure-in-line stroke is the parallel-palms grip (Figure 4.10.15). By parallel I mean the palms and the backs of both hands are parallel to the putterface which means they are perpendicular to the intended putt-line. Most golfers’ arms hang naturally in this parallel position they find it equally natural to swing their arms hack and through perpendicular to their shoulder line (Figure 4.10.16) and this motion is both easy to repeat and promotes a consistent position through impact. However if it proves uncomfortable for you try putting your hands on your putter shaft in the same positions that they hang naturally (without manipulation) under your shoulders (Figure 4.10.17).

Many other grips are possible including the “open palm ” “left-hand-low ” “claw ” “fingertip ” and “equal-pressure” grips. How to best use these and other grips will be discussed in section 11.6 along with how you can develop the best grip for your putting stroke.

Lower-Body Motion and Looking

Almost all golfers unknowingly move their bodies during the putting stroke. Sometimes a lot usually just a little but almost always some which tells me it must be extremely difficult to eliminate (at least without hours and hours of practice). Try rotating your lower body around your spine in your putting address position and you will see it turns your upper body as well (especially your shoulders arms and putter) because your upper body is sitting on the lower (Figure 4.10.18). This also rotates your putterface angle adding an unknown uncontrollable and unwanted variable to the starting line of your putts.

Rotation isn’t the only lower-body motion to avoid. Some golfers sway back and forth as they putt (Figure 4.10.19). They probably don’t know they’re doing it but the ball doesn’t care what you do or don’t know. One forward inch of sway during a stroke will move your ball about one foot on the green. And that ‘s a foot you probably did not plan on.

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

Please start with the three pictures below. Understand that the point of these pictures is to get your arms and chest connected. You should understand the feeling of “being connected” before you try to incorporate this critical step into your golf swing. If you hold the club straight out in front of you, there will be a triangle formed between your arms and chest. Just focus on keeping the triangle between your arms and chest fixed. Just move your arms with your chest. When your chest stops rotating, your arms also stop. Please see the three pictures below and try it out. Turn to your right, then back around to your left, keeping the triangle between your arms and chest constant at all times.
