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?

Malton & Norton Golf Club

The Club was founded in 1910 and in 1923 moved to its present site. A nine hole course was constructed and thus began a long history of development and progress. Further land was subsequently purchased, a Professional appointed, new clubhouse built and in 1970/71 the Welham course you play today was opened.

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

Extract from the book:

What do you think causes most short-putt misses? Even though the distance is small many of these putts are missed because they are rolled at a speed that is either too slow or too fast.

Almost every golfer I know could improve simply by remembering this one rule: All putts are speed putts. The title of Chapter 8 is “Speed Is More Important Than Line”: As I explained there if your putts don’t roll at or near the right speed it doesn’t matter where you aim or what your stroke mechanics are like – you won’t make many.

What follows are my five favorite short-putt drills which will help you learn the proper feel to make these putts while rolling them at the right speed.

Develop Your Artistic Senses (Feel Touch Green-Reading) 321

Drill 1: Closed-Eyes Drill The purpose of this drill is to learn the feel of the three-foot-putt stroke which supplies optimum power to roll putts consistently through the lumpy donut without producing lip-outs. Drop three balls three feet from the hole and putt them in. Then move 90 degrees around the hole and do it

If again and again and again until you’ve circled the hole and made 12 in a row. you miss any putt start over until you hole all 12 consecutively.

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

Extract from the book:

Look at the two motions for bowling: Both are perfect pendulums formed by the arm swinging from the shoulder. On the top the arm swings along the desired starting line of the ball so whether it is released a little early a little late or at the perfect time it always starts in the proper direction. In the lower figure the arm is swung out and around the body so only a perfectly timed release will start the ball rolling in the desired direction. The same comparison for shot accuracy is valid in croquet basketball pool and putting.

So does any golfer want to move the putter or aim the putterface in any direction other than the desired starting line of the putt at the moment of impact? Of course not! Yet some golfers think they can achieve the perfect path through impact by using a screen-door stroke which rotates around their bodies. They obviously don’t realize that the timing of impact (and ball position) must be perfect every time if they hope to have a chance of holing any putts. And they don’t realize that the in-line-square stroke motion minimizes the effects of inconsistencies in timing and ball position.

One Negative

I’m not trying to sell you an in-line putting stroke. If this pils stroke seems too si mple and you want to make putting more difficult that’s okay by me. I’m just trying to inform you that a pure-in-line stroke is the easiest and best way to putt. But it’s not a panacea and there is one potential drawback to putting with this stroke (it’s the same drawback as for the screen-door stroke too).

To see this drawback look at how Perfy misses a simple three-foot putt with

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 85 his perfect in-line-square stroke (Figure 4.7.9). The problem is obvious: If you don’t align your shoulders parallel to the desired starting line for the putt even the perfect stroke path and a square putter blade won’t start the ball rolling on the right line.

So if you are going to take my advice and develop an in-line-square stroke you must be absolutely sure that as you learn this stroke you also learn to address the ball with your shoulders square (parallel-left) to your putting line. And as you will learn in Chapter 11 setting up parallel-left has other benefits as well.

The “Simple Golf” Swing: “Golf for the Rest of Us”

Extract from the book:

Really flip your right wrist through the ball. This action will give you a lot more club head speed. It also eliminates any slice that you may have had because your left elbow isn’t flying on the follow through anymore. So, essentially you’re keeping the left elbow close to the body now. Before it was your right, and now it’s your left elbow that you are keeping tight to your body. Keep your left elbow close to your body, and flip the right wrist through the ball at the same time. You should feel the extra power this gives you.
