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?

For more than a century, golfers have walked the rolling fairways situated in a beautiful landscape of dunes and links-land grasses. Because of the ‘big sky’ in low-lying Norfolk, the views change minute by minute as the light alters, enriching your golfing enjoyment.You could play Hunstanton on seven consecutive days, and imagine you have played seven different courses – the magic never fades. Come and enjoy a unique golfing experience.We like visitors to feel welcome at Hunstanton. The Members and staff are proud of what we have to offer.

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

Extract from the book:

The important principle here is to get your mis-hits to occur near the putter sweetspot or between the sweetspot and the shaft axis of rotation of your putter. But never take this to an extreme which would be making contact on the side of the shaft axis opposite the majority of head weight and the sweetspot. This would cause the heavy side of the head to flip over dramatically and produce a terrible putt (which can be done with “almost-center-shafted” putters). Two of the smartest golfers I know Lee Trevino and Jack Nicklaus have used heel-shafted putters throughout their careers. They learned from experience that their best results are with heel-shafted putters because when they make had strokes they not use heel-shafted putters.

250 Establish Your Practice Framework usually miss toward the heel (between the sweetspot and the shaft axis as recommended above).

Head Balance: Heel-Toe Weighting

There’s good news and bad news regarding the balance of a putterhead. The good news is that the more a putterhead is “heel-toe” balanced – more of its weight is placed toward the ends of the head – the less it twists when mis-hit. (In scientific terms such a putter is said to have a higher moment of inertia.) In general this is good and explains why heel-toe-balanced putters have sold well over the years: Putts hit away from the sweetspot roll a little closer to their intended speed and line. Of course no putter can make putts hit away from the sweetspot roll perfectly but the greater the heel-toe weight distribution the more forgiving the putter is on mis-hits.

Now the bad news. The less a putter twists when mis-hit the better it feels. That sounds good right? Well think about it. Using a putter that feels good even on mis-hits lets golfers get sloppy with their impact patterns which leads to long-term degradation of putting performance. I ‘ve seen many Tour players initially putt well with a heel-toe-balanced putter but then later begin to putt poorly and not know why. They were mis-hitting but didn’t realize it because the putter masked the feel of a mis-hit. When this begins they usually switch to a non-heeltoe-weighted putter until their stroke mechanics and results improve.

If they ask me what to do I offer slightly different advice. I think the advantages of heel-toe-weighted putters are significant and shouldn’t be given up. But I don ‘t want the pros developing a sloppy stroke so I suggest that they continue using a heel-toe-weighted putter on the course and when they practice use a device called the “Teacher Clip ” which trains your stroke to sweetspot contact (Figure 11.6.8). This combination helps keep impact patterns tight (more on this in section 12.3) while still being somewhat forgiving on the course.

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 59

When your face angle is pointing left of your Aimline it is closed (again for right-handed golfers). The “open” and “closed” terminology reverses for lefthanders. You must understand and remember that your putterface angle and putter path arc completely independent of each other.

Impact Point

Your impact point refers to the center of the contact area between your ball and putter on the putterface (Figure 4.2.3). For each and every putt there is one unique impact point which sometimes centers on a single dimple but more often several dimples plus an edge of one or more dimples. After many putts your many impact points will form your impact pattern (Figure 4.2.4) which is very important to the success of your putting. Aim path face angle and impact pattern are four of the 15 building blocks fundamental to your putting stroke mechanics. They describe and define how you move your putterhead and how your putterhead moves through the impact zone determines how well you roll your ball relative to your Aimline.

4.3 Defining Speed

Putt Speed

The velocity with which a ball moves along the green can be referred to in several ways. Some golfers refer to this as the rolling speed or speed of the putt. Some golfers talk about the pace of a putt while others talk about how fast a putt is moving. It would be nice if we all could mean and understand the same thing when referring to speed.

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.
