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?

An established course of one hundred years set amongst mature trees and gorse with attractive water features and smooth, fast and subtly borrowed greens. An easy walking course with generous fairways, a feature of which are the undulations known locally as ‘Lands’ which were created by medieval farming methods. The course is ideal for corporate and society days, as well as for the casual visitors.

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

Extract from the book:

Putters can be fit to golfers in two ways. One way is the “as-is” fit which assumes the golfer will never change his stroke will always putt the way he does at the time of the fitting. For example if the golfer stands too far from and open to the line (Figure 11.6.2) the as-is-fit putter would have a very flat lie plus head balance and shaft axis that would compensate for his propensity to strike the ball on the toe.

The other way is the “perfect fit.” For this the fitter assumes that the golfer will learn to putt from a perfect setup position so he needs a putter of a particular length lie grip size and so on to fit his body shape size and setup. And what happens if this golfer then changes to a strange posture? What if he bends way over at the waist holds the putter far from his body and crouches low to the ground? Then the perfect-fit putter wouldn’t fit him anymore and he would find it awkward to use.

So what is the right way to fit putters to golfers? For the “perfect” stroke or the “as-is” stroke? It helps to know the golfer’s intentions. If he’s not going to come to a school take putting lessons or ever change his stroke then he should be fit the

244 Establish Your Practice Framework best way possible for the stroke he has. But personally I prefer the perfect-fit method. Because if there is any possibility that he will work to improve his putting skills especially his setup posture then it’s wise to fit him with a putter that will help him (or at least allow him) to make the best stroke he can. And sometimes having a perfect-fit putter might encourage him to work on improvement.

Putter-fitting is easy painless and can help make it easier for you to learn proper noncompensating strokes from your most natural and comfortable body positions. If you have your putting equipment fit properly first before you develop and groove your stroke mechanics you won’t have to relearn them later on to remove compensating moves caused by misfit equipment.

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

Extract from the book:

I’m fairly sure there are almost as many different putting paths as there are golfers. And it seems there are as many ways to stand over (address) a putt too. Even for the same golfer each day’s stroke path seems to he different from the last with some golfers changing their paths from straight to breaking putts and changing again from a right-to-left breaker to a left-to-right breaker. Common sense should tell you that changing this often can’t be a good idea; my putting mantra – “simpler is better” – guarantees that the more different putting strokes you employ the worse your problems on the green.

The most practiced putting fundamental is the putter path. However my testing shows that path is actually one of the least significant factors in good putting. Yet when I ask golfers on the practice green what they are working on the most common answer is always “the path of my putter.”

The direction that the putter is moving at the moment of impact has very little influence on the starting direction of a putt: Assuming you make contact on the putter’s sweetspot the degree of influence is only about 17 percent (Figure 4.6.1). That means if the putterface is square to the intended starting line and the putter moves across that line at a 10-degree angle as it makes contact the ball will start only 1.7 degrees off-line (17 percent times 10 degrees equals 1.7 degrees).

So you can make a large error in your stroke path and see only a small error in the starting line of your putt. Another way to think of it is this: On a dead-straight five-foot putt your path could travel along a line aimed 13 inches left of the hole center and the ball would still hit the left edge (Figure 4.6.2) assuming you hit the sweetspot and everything else about your stroke was perfect.

As you will see in section 4.8 putterface angle has more effect on the line a pull starts on than does the putter path. But golfers practice putter path because

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 73 it’s easier for them to see their friends (from whom they take advice) can see it and they don’t know what else to practice. I guess it’s not too hard to understand why their putting doesn’t improve.

As you can see in the image to the left, the back remains straight while bending over to the ball. All of the bending is done at the hips. Bending at the waist and keeping a straight back will promote great ball flight and consistency. The relationship between the arms and chest has not changed.
