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?

Lingdale Golf Club

Lingdale has a reputation for being one of the friendliest golf clubs in the county. It nestles in beautiful countryside in the picturesque surroundings of the Charnwood Forest and is easily accessible from Loughborough or Leicester and only 10 minutes from the M1 motorway. The 18 greens have been built to USGA specifications and the new clubhouse and pro shop provide the finest facilities for golfers of all abilities. Designed in 1966 by course architect David Tucker, it was described by Tony Jacklin in 1989 as having ‘probably the toughest opening three holes in the Midlands’. Come and play the course yourself and enjoy the challenge and the scenery.

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

Extract from the book:

Here’s a factor that you can’t see but you can feel. Of course if the wind is blowing 50 miles an hour you might see it blow your ball off-line as it rolls to the hole. But what about a light breeze? Does it affect your puns? In Chapter 9 I’ve quantified what wind can do to a putt. It’s just one more unknowable factor that you might want to be aware of so you can play your best golf.

Problems on the Greens 21

Let’s get off the greens and look at another common factor another bump on the road to consistently effective putting. That would be the thousands of ways in which you can swing a putter. It is precisely because there are all these options that so many golfers believe putting to be “personal.” I know you’ve heard or read of golf professionals teaching that putting is individualistic idiosyncratic or a matter of personal taste and that you should do “whatever feels right to you.”

Wrong! Nothing could be further from the truth. For many golfers there is absolutely nothing natural about a good putting stroke. When I’ve measured them most golfers putt pretty badly when they try to do “what feels right.”

There are as many body types as there are golfers. And while there are only a few proper ways to stroke a golf ball perfectly in trying to accomplish those few fundamentals each golfer can look unique. However this does not mean putting is individualistic; what it does mean is that when taking a perfect stance and perfect posture for the perfect address position different golfers will look different.

How about grip? There is a single best putting grip for every golfer. But there is not one perfect putting grip for all golfers. Different golfers have hands of different sizes and for some one hand is larger than the other. Each golfer’s forearms wrists hand strength instincts and even metabolism are different. So while there maybe many ways to putt there is only one best way for each golfer to putt.

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

Aim Is Learned

Aiming is easy. Everybody aims. It is aiming precisely where you want to aim that is more elusive. The fact that most golfers do a poor job of aiming is not surprising because there’s no feedback on a putting green to teach golfers how to aim properly. In the absence of feedback golfers use two inputs to guide their attempts to aim: First they use their previous putting results (what I call reaction aiming) and second they use the look of their putter relative to their Aimline (what I call position aiming). Further explanations are in order.

Reaction Aiming

The way most golfers aim is to consider past results and then align themselves and their putter to correct for stroke faults and produce the results they want. For example you miss a putt to the left and think “I pulled it ” or maybe “I aimed too far to the left.” Miss several putts left and you think “I must be aiming too far to the left.” So what do you do? You aim to the right. Pretty soon and without realizing you’ve learned to aim consistently to the right as a way of compensating for a stroke that tends to pull to the left.

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 65

Data taken in my Scoring Game Schools show conclusively that reaction aiming is a learned skill that most golfers develop as a way to compensate for their putting stroke deficiencies. Players who block their strokes to the right of their Aimline learn to aim to the left of the Aimline. Players who pull their putts to the left learn to aim to the right.

Think about it: Have you ever seen golfers who block putts to the right also aim too far to the right? Of course not. They would miss putts so far to the right it would be ridiculous. They learn to aim to the left and they think this is proper because it produces better results. So the overriding influence on how golfers learn to aim is as a reaction to their results. That is reaction aiming.
