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?

How it all began…. A Souvenir hand book of Newark Golf Club published in 1921 credits Mr Stuart MacRae (pictured left) with having introduced golf to Newark in about 1890. Mr MacRae, together with about a dozen fellow enthusiasts including Dr Ringrose (a fellow Scot) and Mr E H Nicholson, laid out 6 holes on the Sconce Hills elevated earthworks in a field on the Farndon Road near the river Devon.

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

Extract from the book:

Green-Reading the 15th Building Block 163

At the other extreme is the “lowest-possible-true-break” Aimline (Figure 7.9.4 right). This works with the highest possible speed the ball can roll and stay in the cup (when it hits the back of the hole dead center). Any putt started on a lower Aimline or rolled at a faster speed will miss on the low side of the cup or jump over bounce off the back edge or lip-out due to excessive speed.

So there is an optimum-true-break Aimline which is the Aimline combined with a putt rolling at the optimum speed that will allow you the highest percentage chance of holing the putt.

This is an important concept so let me repeat it: Every putt has an optimum speed which works with an optimum Aimline which is aimed for the optimum amount of true break to find the hole with the highest probability conditions will allow. Ultimately what I hope to teach you are the skills in reading greens and rolling putts that will help you to hone in on this perfect duo whenever you stand over a putt. conditions will allow.

Fudge on the High Side

You’re standing over a putt sure that it’s going to break but unsure whether to aim it 6 or 10 inches above the hole. Whenever you have doubts about the true break fudge toward the higher break. If you are going to make an error judging break it’s always better to play slightly too much than too little.

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

Extract from the book:

Some golfers even roll the right forearm over after starting with their forearms level (Figure 4.10.10). This happens because they rotate their forearms for every other shot in golf and it feels like the natural thing to do in their putting stroke too. Watch out for this trap! There is absolutely no reason to try to supply power or directional control to your putter from the rotation of your forearms. If you let your forearms swing back and through straight down the line and imagine main taining your forearms ‘ perfect parallel-left alignment you ll feel a perfectly natural putting stroke. And the back of your left hand and your putterface will remain square to your intended line at all times.

Eyes Hips Knees and Feet

The alignment of your eyes hips knees and feet flow-lines is important to your putting only in as much as they affect your brain or the orientation of your shoulder and forearm flow-lines. The problem is they can and do affect them for some golfers.

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 101

I say affect your brain because your eyes process information and feed it to your brain at all times. If you perceive that you need to push your putt out to the right because your eye flow-line is aimed too far left then your brain will make your body do it. When you are trying to perceive distance your eye-line should he horizontal in the binocular position (the way we usually look at things with our head up) to enhance depth perception (left side of Figure 4.10.H). However when you are looking along your Aimline to perceive the flow motion of your putter and ball along it your eye-line should he parallel-left (Figure 4.10.11 right).

As for your hip knee and feet flow-lines there is no reason I know of to have them aligned in any direction other than the intended flow direction of your putts. Some golfers tell me they see the line better when they stand open to their putts but when I test how well they are seeing the line it is usually pretty poorly. Look at Figure 4.10.12 and decide for yourself: Which setup do you think will produce better and more consistent putter flow down the Aimline?

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

Extract from the book:

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.
