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?

Founded in 1905, the golf course was designed on a gently undulating plateau overlooking the town of Llandrindod Wells, by six times Open Champion Harry Vardon.Vardon designed a golf course that demonstrates a unique individuality that is seldom seen on parkland golf courses. Vardon’s innovative use of the natural environment created a golf course that plays like a traditional “links” course.At almost 5800 yards with a par of 69 this is a golf course that no golfer will want to miss.

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

Extract from the book:

Everybody can benefit from the stability drills but they are especially helpful to golfers who make good mechanical strokes yet decelerate into impact. If you’re not stable (accelerating) through impact every error you make is maximized in your results. Simply by making a tiny change from your present putting rhythm you may be able to change your unstable stroke to a stable one. And if you do your results will improve significantly even dramatically in pressure situations.

12.3 Groove Your Impact Point

If making solid contact between putter and ball is a problem you can improve if you are willing to do some careful work. I say work because it will take about 20 000 solid practice strokes to make solid contact a habit. And I say careful because many golfers who try to change their stroke in search of more solid contact

Improve Your Stroke Mechanics 279 find themselves missing every putt to the right or left with their new solid stroke (because they practiced carelessly) and you don’t want that.

The program we recommend has worked for almost every golfer we’ve given it to without creating other problems in the process. It involves finding and marking your putter sweetspot documenting your improvement progress and maintaining a good stroke path while you improve your impact pattern.

If your putter has a mark on its top line don’t assume that is where you should address and strike your putts. Many manufacturers place those marks where they look good but don’t do the engineering and quality control necessary to balance the putter weight so the sweetspot is really there.

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

Extract from the book:

Problems on the Greens 25

That gives them a chance to go in and the longest ones will probably stop near enough to the hole to leave no-brainers coming back.

Now look at the bottom of Figure 2.6.5 to see how far these same putts roll given the same amount of starting energy on a straight downhill putt. There ‘s a big difference from the level and uphill putts. Of course each downhill putt rolls farther but more important the spread of distances between balls has increased meaning the roll distance is more sensitive to energy input. Now the distance between the longest and shortest balls is 18 feet. So your downhill stroke has to be about three times more precise than your uphill stroke to stop a putt at the right distance. When putting downhill make a stroke of the wrong speed and you’ll have trouble making your next putt.

I’m not saying that understanding putting like this will make you a great putter. But I am saying that understanding nature’s rules and where the dangers lie in putting can help you be a better putter. And not understanding what putting is all about will make it even more difficult for you to learn to putt well.

So if you don’t know that downhill putts break more than uphill putts on the same slope (covered in Chapter 7) then you won’t be making many downhill-breaking putts. Or if you believe that Bobby Locke and Ben Crenshaw struck their putts with overspin to make them dive into the hole then it’s unlikely that you’ll work on those aspects of your putting that actually can help you putt better (see section 4.9).

It might seem about now that I’m being very negative about putting that I’m pointing out how hard it is how much you don’t know and how much you have to learn to be a good putter. I’m not trying to he negative but I am trying to point out how much you have to learn. Learning is what good putting is all about: It’s not hard to putt well; it is hard to learn how to putt well. And the difference is crucial. I place much of the blame for the difficulty in learning squarely on the putting green. The green provides a very poor environment in which to learn.

Standing on the putting green golfers have no idea why they miss putts or why they make them. After missing a putt (even on the practice green) most golfers assume their stroke mechanics were to blame. However they may have stroked a perfect putt but it hit a hard-to-see footprint which caused the putt to miss the hole. Or they might make a putt and assume they stroked it perfectly when they actually hit a terrible putt but misread it just the right amount to compensate and – only luck can explain it – roll it into the hole.

This is a different view of the complete follow through. Your forearms are crossed, and that is the sign that you have completed the follow-through correctly Keep your head perfectly still during the entire swing This is the last crucial step that you must master. It’s by far the easiest step, but ironically it will produce the most results. The biggest problem is that you don’t always know when you are moving your head. You may find that swinging easier helps keep the head still, but other than that it is just something that you will have to really concentrate on.
