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?

Hoylake Municipal Golf Club

n 1933 a group of gentlemen with a common interest in golf decided to form a new Golf Club. They decided upon the name Hoylake, and this proved to be the founding of this great club. It was not the first club to play at the Hoylake municipal golf links. This distinction goes to Grosvenor Grange Ladies GC, which was, in 1898 formed by a group of ladies from The Royal Liverpool Golf Club who desired to play golf unhindered by the social constraints of the times. The Royal Liverpool purchased some land and constructed a 9 hole course for the ladies.

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

Extract from the book:

I am frequently asked to explain the differences between touch and feel in golf. Many golfers use the two terms interchangeably without thinking about it (as I used to do). Now that I understand a little more about how much is going on in a golfer’s mind and body however I think we need separate terms to describe these distinct attributes. Very simply (and you can read Chapter 5 again for more details) I liken touch on the greens to knowing what to do and feel to knowing how to do it (as detailed in Figure 13.1.1).

With these distinctions it becomes possible to focus on and measure your touch and feel abilities and see if one or both needs improvement and work. I’ll discuss how to improve touch first and then feel (as well as how to improve your green-reading) later in this chapter.

Touch Feel

Touch is knowing WHAT IS REQUIRED Feel is knowing HOW TO SUPPLY what is for this putt: needed for the putt:

Once you know how much gas you need then you have to figure out how hard to step on the gas pedal and when to step on the brakes as you drive on your Thanksgiving trip (something you figure out after you are into the trip) to negotiate the stops and turns in the road along the way. This “knowing how to drive” is analogous to knowing how to feel the proper stroke in putting where you must know in your mind’s eye the required size of the swing (or hardness of the hit) as well as how it will look and feel to impart the power which will provide the proper energy and speed of roll required. So touch is knowing how long the trip is and how much power it will require and feel is knowing how to apply the power (how to drive) to get you there.

Of course good touch and feel also require a proper read of the green knowing what will happen to your putt as it rolls. Think of green-reading as having a good road map for your journey. A good map or good directions can make the trip easy but a bad map with poor directions can turn the simplest trip into a nightmare.

So you need a map enough gas and the knowledge of how hard to step on the gas pedal along the way. You need all these things in concert to have a good trip. And you need good feel touch and green-reading skills also working together to putt well. Leave one out or do one poorly and it will he the same as losing your way on your Thanksgiving trip. Feel touch and green-reading are separate skills essentially different in nature yet each needs to be developed to provide the best result. And in case I ‘ve confused you that result is to roll the ball into the hole.

5.2 Touch and Feel Are in the Mind’s Eye

The skill bases for your touch and feel (green-reading will be discussed in Chapter 7) are intermingled in your mind. They are also intermingled in that they have a combined effect on putting results. But each is a separate skill which can be learned and developed over time.

Touch is in your head but it begins with knowing what your putt looks like and remembering (knowing based on past experience) how much power (the size or intensity of stroke) was required in the past for similar putts. Touch is an acquired skill based on past experiences. It resides in your memory bank and plays a part in creating the mind’s-eye picture of the size of stroke you need.

This is a different view of the complete follow through. Your forearms are crossed, and that is the sign that you have completed the follow-through correctly Keep your head perfectly still during the entire swing This is the last crucial step that you must master. It’s by far the easiest step, but ironically it will produce the most results. The biggest problem is that you don’t always know when you are moving your head. You may find that swinging easier helps keep the head still, but other than that it is just something that you will have to really concentrate on.
