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?

Huyton & Prescot Golf Club

Founded in 1905, Huyton & Prescot Golf Club is home to a fine golf course that, only ten miles outside of Liverpool, is well within easy reach of any golf fanatic in the area. It is an extremely popular course and enjoys a lively, active membership who are always friendly and welcoming to visitors. The course itself is laid out on luxurious, luscious parkland and is easy walking on the whole, spanning just under 6,000 yards from the first tee to the eighteenth pin. There are plenty of natural hazards littered around the course so accuracy and good course management is required to score well, particularly on the troublesome par 3s.

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

Extract from the book:

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.

Establish Your Practice Framework 251

As much as I like heel-toe weighting I won’t use a putter no matter how forgiving if it means sacrificing easy and accurate alignment (more about alignment in section 11.7). In the long run good putting means consistently striking putts on the sweetspot. Do that and you won’t have any problems with head balance or putter twisting. And that’s why you see as many Tour pros putting with non-heeltoe-balanced putters as putting with strongly heel-toe-balanced putters. Hit putts on the sweetspot and there is no difference.

Golfers’ Grips

However you choose to hold on to the putter your grip should present the putter-face to the ball in a square position through impact keep your forearm flow-lines in good position and allow you to feel the flow of your stroke.

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

Extract from the book:

Taking a Trip

Stick with me here as I equate the skills of putting touch feel and green-reading on the golf course to what you do when taking a Thanksgiving drive to your parents’ house. First to have a nice trip you need to know how many miles you have to drive and how much of the trip is mountain driving. With that knowledge you can figure out how much gas you need to make it there. This is like having touch in putting which is knowing how long the putt is so you can then figure out how much power will be required in your stroke to get the ball to the hole.

And you’d better know how much gas you need before starting the trip because there are no filling stations (putting stroke adjustments) along the way (after you hit the ball).

Five Nonphysical Building Blocks: Touch Feel Attitude Routine and Ritual 113

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.

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

The follow through is now complete. The forearms are completely crossed, showing that you have gotten your hands through the ball. It may take a few days to get used to this new “left elbow close-to-side, forearms crossed-at-finish” concept. It will come though. It’s one of the best things you can do for your golf swing. No more blocking to the right or uncontrollably slicing the ball!
