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?

Mark Twain may well have said “Golf is a good walk spoiled”, however he never came to Horne Park Golf. If he had, this famous assessment may never have been made. When you come to Horne Park Golf you will share the same experience as many other people – one of total surprise. Surprised that for a nine-hole course, it appeals to the beginner, the learner, the improver and the steady golfer.

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

Extract from the book:

Establish Your Practice Framework 257

If you suffer from the putting yips try a putter with extreme weight in both the head and the shaft. While not a cure it can help smooth out a yippy stroke allowing you to get through impact and keep playing and having fun while working on the problem (discussed in section 14.9).

Shaft Flex

Most golfers never consider the flex of their putter shaft but it is something that can help or hurt your success. Ben Crenshaw uses a very weak and flexible shaft because he wants to feel when his putterhead is in perfect rhythm with his stroke. He also wants to feel if his rhythm is off. Most graphite putter shafts which are both flexible and light help do this too.

Another great putter Deane Beman pioneered a completely different line of thought. Beman was a Tour player known for his great short game and putting before he became PGA Tour Commissioner. Deane wanted the stiffest strongest shaft he could get so the shaft wouldn’t add or subtract any energy he didn’t want. To determine which shaft suits you test them on very long putts and sec which provides you with the best touch and feel for distance.

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

Extract from the book:

So if you are going to take my advice and develop an in-line-square stroke you must be absolutely sure that as you learn this stroke you also learn to address the ball with your shoulders square (parallel-left) to your putting line. And as you will learn in Chapter 11 setting up parallel-left has other benefits as well.

4.8 The Importance of Putterface Angle

While putter path has relatively minor influence on the starting line direction of your putts (only about 17 percent) the putterface angle at the moment of impact (Figure 4.8.1) has a tremendous effect the remaining 83 percent (assuming contact is made on the sweetspot). This means face angle is more than four times as important as putter path. You may find this imbalance in importance surprising (most golfers do) but it’s true.

If you are having a hard time believing this run the following test for yourself. As shown in Figure 4.8.2 aim the edge of a heavy piece of wood to the left edge of a target. Place a ball just outside the wood about the distance from the heel of the

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 87 putter to the sweetspot and hold the putterface open to a 45-degree angle to the target with a piece of cardboard (cut the cardboard with equal-length sides A and B at right angles then cut side C between the end points as shown in the inset). Using both hands to hold the face open at that angle and keeping the heel against the wood slide the putter toward the target to simulate a putting stroke (shown from right to left in figure). If you keep the face 45 degrees open the ball will start to the right almost perpendicular to the open face (actually 45 degrees times .83 = 37 degrees) no matter how hard you hit it.

This should convince you that even with the perfect path poor face angle at the moment of impact will start your putts off-line big-time.

Do you still think putter path is as important as face angle? Reposition the piece of wood to produce a path at 45 degrees to the right of your Aimline and hold the putterface square to the Aimline aiming straight at the hole. Again use both hands to control face angle and path and slide the putterface along the edge of the wood. This stroke – with perfect face angle but 45-degree off-line path (Figure 4.8.3) – starts the ball only about 7 degrees off of the Aimline.
