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?

Lindrick Golf Club

In July of 1891, the first ever meeting of the committee of what is now Lindrick Golf Club met to consider the formation of a Golf Club, and to consider a number of potential sites. Later that month it was agreed that the course should be sited on Lindrick Common and within 3 months the course was open. The first competition was played on 9 April 1892 over 9 holes; it was won by William Jessop with a gross 74, less full handicap allowance of 45, giving a net score of 29. The original results sheet can be seen in the Billiards Room. In December of that year the Club professional holed in one at the 130 yard 7th “using Sir W Dalrymple’s hammer headed club and a Slazenger ball”. The club was originally named The Sheffield and District Golf Club, but this was changed in 1934 and the full name of the club is now “Lindrick Golf Club (Sheffield and District)”.

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

Extract from the book:

Now that you have good touch you need good feel to be able to transform what your touch tells you is needed into a stroke that feels right and that you believe will provide the perfect roll (speed and distance) required.

Remember touch is knowing “what” to do while feel is knowing “how” to do it. So when you practice feel you must assume you already know what is needed (the size of the required stroke) and you’re trying to create the how (feel) to do it. Although this assumption isn’t always the case on the course (sometimes your touch gives you its best estimate of what is needed but you doubt its accuracy) you

Develop Your Artistic Senses (Feel Touch Green-Reading) 313 must trust your touch when you practice feel on the putting green. This means feel practice should be very repetitive internalizing the process of producing a given stroke and roll after you know the power and distance needed for that putt.

To practice feel you must practice using your mind’s-eye memories and prior training to visualize how the stroke should look and feel to create optimum distance and speed. Knowing this relationship is your feel in putting. You then can recognize a job well done by the good feeling you get as you swing through impact and reach the end of your follow-through. You’ll know even before looking up to see where the ball has gone: If you feel “Ahhh yes that’s as good as I can stroke it; I made an exact repeat of my preview stroke and that’s the exact stroke I wanted to put on the ball ” then you know you did a good job feeling the putt.

However if you look up and see the ball going nowhere near the hole – that your stroke rolled it way too fast and past the hole – you know your touch failed you. This is a condition you don’ t want in your practice of feel. And that is why you should always practice putting to the same hole over and over again (so your touch of knowing what is needed becomes obviously accurate) when you are working on feel.

There are times when you may have the opposite experience. You’ll strike your pull and before looking up you know that you don’t like it. You know in your mind’s eye that the ball is not going where you planned it to go. The reason will he one (or a combination) of the following:

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

Extract from the book:

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.

Technically the speed of a putt can be described and measured in quantitative terms as the velocity of motion (in units of inches or feet per second) in a given direction and the decay or decrease of velocity (the velocity profile) as the ball rolls to a stop. However since most golfers don’t think in technical terms on or off the course the actual velocity of a putt at any instant is neither very meaningful nor useful. As a result golfers talk about the speed of their putts as being too fast too slow or just about right as they approach the hole.
