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?

Immingham Golf Club

Immingham Golf Club is a member owned 18 hole course situated on the outskirts of the Port and Town of Immingham . Much of the course is built on the site of the Medieval village of Immingham, which surrounded the closely situated St Andrews Church. Opened in 1975 as a nine hole course , it was built on land that is one of the few examples of Medieval strip-farming that still exists. The exaggerated undulations provide the golfer with many differing stances and lies, truly rewarding the accuracy of the shot. The Course is currently just over 6000yds in length and is demanding of both accuracy and distance. The fairways are closely mown and shaped, with a medium light rough to trap wayward golf balls.

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

Extract from the book:

HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR PUTTING

CHAPTER 10

The Improvement Process

10.1 First Comes Understanding

Before you can improve your putting and become the best you can be you must fully understand the 15 building blocks of the putting game then understand your personal performance (what you do right and wrong) in each block. I say this from my experience working with so many golfers. The physical act of putting is not difficult to do and the putting stroke itself is not difficult to execute but many aspects of putting are difficult to learn to do. Most golfers try to work on their putting strokes with little or no feedback while many others work with bad or inaccurate feedback. As I said earlier putting is the simplest physical swing in golf but it also is the most frustrating for most golfers because when they practice to get better more often than not they get worse.

You can practice develop and improve the wrong aspect of your putting (that is an aspect that is not causing your problems) for the rest of your life and you’ll never putt any better. Because it doesn’t help to correct the wrong thing. To practice the wrong thing correctly is as bad as practicing the right thing incorrectly. Neither helps one hit.

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

Extract from the book:

There are any number of ways to hold a putter. But I think there is only one way to set grip pressure and that is light and unchanging throughout your stroke. Light pressure is better than tight because squeezing your hands and flexing the hand wrist and arm muscles makes them stronger less pliant and less sensitive to delicate feelings. And remember your hands should be dead rather than strong when putting. So the lighter your grip (as long as the putter doesn’t slip out of your hands and your wrists don’t get floppy) the less likely you are to “hit” your putts and the more likely you will “stroke” them. This applies to all putting grips.

The purpose of your grip is to hold on to your putter as you allow it to move along the perfect in-line path with a square face angle through impact. There is no

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 105 right or wrong way to hold a putter for all golfers. But there is a best way for each golfer to hold his or her putter. This best way will lead to making the best stroke the greatest percentage of the time.

The grip that makes it easiest for most people to produce a pure-in-line stroke is the parallel-palms grip (Figure 4.10.15). By parallel I mean the palms and the backs of both hands are parallel to the putterface which means they are perpendicular to the intended putt-line. Most golfers’ arms hang naturally in this parallel position they find it equally natural to swing their arms hack and through perpendicular to their shoulder line (Figure 4.10.16) and this motion is both easy to repeat and promotes a consistent position through impact. However if it proves uncomfortable for you try putting your hands on your putter shaft in the same positions that they hang naturally (without manipulation) under your shoulders (Figure 4.10.17).

Many other grips are possible including the “open palm ” “left-hand-low ” “claw ” “fingertip ” and “equal-pressure” grips. How to best use these and other grips will be discussed in section 11.6 along with how you can develop the best grip for your putting stroke.

Lower-Body Motion and Looking

Almost all golfers unknowingly move their bodies during the putting stroke. Sometimes a lot usually just a little but almost always some which tells me it must be extremely difficult to eliminate (at least without hours and hours of practice). Try rotating your lower body around your spine in your putting address position and you will see it turns your upper body as well (especially your shoulders arms and putter) because your upper body is sitting on the lower (Figure 4.10.18). This also rotates your putterface angle adding an unknown uncontrollable and unwanted variable to the starting line of your putts.
