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?

Mundesley Golf Club

Despite being just half a mile from the beautiful Norfolk coast, Mundesley Golf Club, founded in 1901, sits in rolling parkland with commanding views over the surrounding countryside. It was designed with the help of the legendary 6-times Open Champion Harry Vardon and offers a fair challenge to golfers of all handicaps.The nine-hole course, with 18 tees, provides a variety of tests, from the deceptive par three 1st with its tricky, slick green, to the aptly named Sea View par five 14th which requires a sturdy tee shot to carry the gorse. The course is complemented by a modern clubhouse where members and visitors alike can be sure of the traditional friendly Mundesley welcome.

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

Extract from the book:

Sometimes the most significant grain effects occur on putts that go directly

Green-Reading the 15th Building Block 169 with or against the grain by changing both the amount of the break and the overall distance your putts will roll. If you putt against the grain (that is the grass is growing directly into the rolling ball) its speed will be slowed your putt won’t roll as far and all breaking putts will break a little more than normal (right side of Figure 7.10.2). Putting with the grain not only gives the ball extra speed and distance but also keeps it rolling more on-line and breaking less than normal (center ball track). On long putts the difference in rolling distances can be quite significant (Figure 7.10.3).

If you’ve played in the southern tier of the United Slates you’ve probably putted on Bermuda grass which has broad bristly leaves and a sparse growing pattern and can be especially grainy. But bent grass which is found predominantly in the northern part of the country has grain too just not as strong. Wherever you play try to learn about the strength of the grain before you venture onto the course.

There are a few quick ways to judge the way the grain is running on any green. First look to see if it’s obvious – that is if you can sec that the blades of grass lie all in one direction. Remember grass tends to grow toward water and the sun so look that way first. Then check if you can see the sun ‘s reflection on the grass: If the grass appears whitish or shiny it means the grain is growing away from you; if the grass looks darker you’re seeing a little shade under the blades as you look into the tip ends which means the grain is growing toward you.

Grain will have the greatest effect on a putt near the hole since that’s where the ball rolls slowest. So check how the grass is growing around the hole. Also examine the edges of the cup: One side may look cleanly cut while the other is ragged which indicates how the grass is growing. A clean edge means the grain is growing from that side toward the hole; the ragged edge is on the side of the cup that lost its roots when the cup was cut (that’s why it is ragged because some blades died during the day after having their roots cut off) so the grain runs away from the hole on the ragged side.

Then there’s the “drag test” – simply dragging the leading edge (bottom) of your putterface firmly across the grass to see what happens. If the grass continues to lie flat your drag is in the direction of the grain; if the grass bristles up that’s the against-the-grain direction as seen in Figure 7.10.4 (you may have to drag in a circle to find the pure “against-the-grain” effect). While dragging your putter

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

Extract from the book:

In keeping with their tradition of maintaining the game’s challenge the USGA would prefer that golfers putt in what they describe as the “traditional style.” While this technique is not as simple or easy as the methods described above it’s not necessarily all that difficult either. Lots of putts have been and will be made the USGA way.

Up to this point I have been going from the easiest to more difficult ways to putt. Now I have to reverse that. In discussing the following ways to putt all of which conform to the Rules I will begin with the most difficult and work down to what I perceive to be the easiest way to putt.

The USGA would be happiest if every golfer would putt like Bobby Jones (Figure 3.4.1) used to putt and would use a putter similar to Jones’s old “Calamity Jane.” Jones putted standing perpendicular to the intended putting line and made what appeared to be a miniature golf swing. While this sounds like it might make putting easy being like all the other swings in golf in reality it makes putting quite a bit more difficult.

If the putting stroke is a miniature chip shot which is a miniature 5-iron swing which is a miniature driver swing it makes down-the-line vision difficult involves a slight rotation of the body and encourages rotation of the forearms. This also encourages rotation of the putterface provides far more power than is needed and brings to bear critical timing requirements all of which make putting so difficult and traumatic to so many golfers.

Methods of Putting 41

As I continue to detail the various options you have for putting you should know that some of the legal ways are easier than others (yet not one is truly easy). And here’s the kicker: Only one will work best for you.

As 1 mentioned above l’m moving from the more to the less complex in terms of having to perform manipulations and actions to make these strokes happen. That means I’m going to finish with the method I think is the easiest. You can skip ahead if you like but 1’d suggest reading through the less desirable methods so you don’t someday find yourself doing something that you think is good but is actually hurting your chances of success.

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

Hold the club steady with your right hand, and place left hand underneath the club as shown. The first joint of the left forefinger should be directly on the bottom of the handle, as well as the last joint of your left pinky. Once you have placed your palm on top of the club, do the same with your left thumb. Place it directly on top of the handle of the club. Next, interlock the left forefinger, and the right pinky. Nudge your right hand all the way towards the bottom of the grip. Now again, wrap the right palm all the way around the top of the grip. Don’t hold the grip of the club in your right palm. You should be able to cover up your left thumb with your right palm if you’ve done it correctly. You’ll see another V-shape being made where your right thumb and right forefinger meet. As a check, this V should be pointing directly at your right shoulder. If it doesn’t point at your right shoulder, rotate your hand on the grip so that it does. Your fingers should be giving the club most of the support it needs, NOT your palms.
