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?

We have 2 courses at Killin, the main 9 hole course, and a wee course within it which was built with money from clubgolf for the juniors. This “wee course” consists of 8 par 3’s and a par 4, it is played from separate tees and to separate greens marked with white flags. Care should be taken when playing the 4th as the clubgolf 5th hole crosses the 4th fairway just in front of the green. The clubgolf 9th tee is level with and to the left of the white marker post on the 9th fairway.

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

Extract from the book:

Assume you have walked the green and read the break of your putt. Standing behind the ball looking along the Aimline you get committed to that line. If you aren’t sure how much break is there or the precise line you want to start on then you are not ready to begin your routine. So look some more maybe walk around again and resurvey the green for its slope speed and grain.

In reading the green you use your touch to imagine what kind of ball track it is going to take to get your ball into the hole. Once the break and line are firmly in mind and you are committed to that read you are ready to get into your routine to see and feel which stroke your mind ‘s eye tells you will produce that perfect roll into the cup.

The routine I suggest (detailed in section 11.2) is a five-step procedure that usually takes somewhere between 20 and 40 seconds at the end of which you should be absolutely prepared to execute your ritual and the stroke you have just seen and felt and believe will hole your putt.

5.10 The Ritual

A putting ritual consists of a few motions the last few you make before initiating the backswing of your real stroke. Besides being a consistent set of motions they are all made in a constant rhythm and timing sequence. It should never change. Your ritual sets the tone and timing for the rhythm of your stroke. It is this pattern and timing of motions that provides the trigger – the “one-two-three-go ” – for your stroke. Your ritual must take less than eight seconds to execute so the feel and vision of your perfect preview stroke is still mostly there fresh in your brain and body.

Once your ritual has begun there is no turning back unless you are so dis

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

Extract from the book:

Proper speed also largely eliminates the chance of three-putting. Above all else good speed control is a requirement for good putting.

The Sweetspot in Two Dimensions

I mentioned briefly that you can miss the sweetspot both horizontally and vertically. So a word about hitting putts high or low on the face. Most golfers habitually make contact at roughly the same height on their putterface. As long as this height is about four-tenths of an inch above the sole where most putters are designed to be hit this is good.

But some golfers try to hit up on their putts to produce overspin or topspin and in doing so usually contact the ball very low on the putterface near its bottom. This is bad because it causes hand and muscle control of the putter (subjecting you to the effects of adrenaline) and can even result in some putters rotating over the ball if hit hard enough (Figure 4.9.3). Such rotation can actually impart more backspin on a ball than the hitting-up motion removes. (1 prefer backweighted-low putter designs to eliminate this problem.) Hitting up on the ball also raises the effective putter loft which can launch a ball up off the green and produce a bouncing and therefore inconsistent putt.

Having said this there is one situation in which I recommend either hitting up on your putts or using a more-lofted-than-normal putter. When you find yourself putting on soft and severely bumpy greens you might want to try launching your short puns slightly upward to avoid the footprints that would send them squirting left or right. True this is not a great stroke but on truly bad surfaces it may be the least had of your options.

Spinning Puffs

Forget here and now the idea of imparting spin as a way to control your putts. Research has shown that the friction of the green removes all spin from rolling halls
