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?

Nevill Golf Club

Founded in 1914 and with over 800 members, Nevill Golf Club is well placed on the Southern edge of Tunbridge Wells and has a magnificent view south from the verandah of the clubhouse over the well wooded slopes of Bayham and Frant. The course is exceptionally enjoyable and challenging at the same time and, from its tips, can stretch to nearly 6,500-yards.

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

Extract from the book:

To finish this drill you must roll 10 putts in a row that stop in the Safe-Zone and the 10th must be putted from the opposite side of the hole than the ninth. Remember all putts that fall into the hole count as good (as if they ‘ve stopped in the Safe-Zone).

This drill is great for developing feel because it makes you putt the same two putts over and over after you know what is needed and your touch is no longer in question. Also as you near the last few putts the pressure mounts to not miss which is a good test of how well you focus and concentrate on your feel under pressure.

Put Gloves on and Close Your Eyes

One way golfers can improve their ability to visualize the feel in their mind’s eye is to putt wearing ski gloves on both hands (Figure 13.3.4). Thick padded gloves remove all kinesthetic messages of feel from the shaft and putterhead to the hands. So all they have to determine the size of their stroke (and preview stroke) is their mind’s-eye vision.

When you first try practice putting in ski gloves you’ll be surprised to find that most of your feel actually is in your mind and you’ll probably putt better than you expected. That’s when you realize the physical feel in your hands is “icing on

Develop Your Artistic Senses (Feel Touch Green-Reading) 317 minimizes the kinesthetic side of feel and helps refine one’s mind’s-eye feel for putts. the cake” in putting. It also may be when you finally understand why you don’t want to supply putting power with your hands and wrists: This kind of power overwhelms the small kinesthetic messages of feel that are there and removes your chance of benefiting from that “icing.”

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

Extract from the book:

My tests also show that the long putter hanging vertically (from under the chin) is marginally more effective than the long putter anchored against the chest (right side of Figure 3.5.11) and better than the midlength putter anchored below the chest. But all three of these options because they employ a longer-thannormal-length shaft eliminate the problem of wrist breakdown that hampers many golfers.

The negatives of putting with a long putter are learning to roll putts the right distance (it requires learning new feel and touch for distance) and occasional instability in windy conditions. However both problems can be handled with a little practice leading me to believe they aren’t inherent problems but caused by a lack of experience.

50 Methods of Putting

The Pure Pendulum Stroke And that brings us to the simplest easiest most repeatable most reliable and therefore best way to putt – the pure no-hit pendulum stroke. By this I mean a putter swinging in rhythm with the arms and hands with no power input from the hands and wrists whatsoever. If the pendulum is pure and swings down the line with no face rotation it is as simple a motion as can be made under the Rules of Golf. And that’s why it is the method I recommend most often to my students. And I recommend it to you.

To see it in use watch George Archer on the Senior PGA Tour who has produced the purest and best pendulum stroke for the longest period of time of anyone I’ve ever seen (Figure 3.5.12). Over a 20-year period playing against Nicklaus Palmer Player Watson Crenshaw Ballesteros Faldo and Norman Archer holed a higher percentage of his putts than all the rest.

The list of others who make pure-pendulum strokes reads like a who’s who of great putters including Bob Charles Greg Norman Dave Stockton Andy North Loren Roberts and Phil Mickelson (Figure 3.5.13). Having now looked at these great putters and seeing how simple their strokes are doesn’t it make you want to start putting that way? If it does you are reading the right book because my Putting Bible is mostly about why what and how to do it!

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.
