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?

Newburgh On Ythan Golf Club

Newburgh-on-Ythan Golf Club was founded in 1888 and was originally a nine hole course laid out on the Newburgh Links which is located along the River Ythan estuary and the coastal dunes. The course was extended in 1996 and the new nine holes – the outward half – is characterised by undulations and hills, with elevated tees and greens requiring a range of shot making. The original inward nine demands accurate golf from tee to green and is the epitome of the typical Scottish links course. The course at Newburgh is noted for the quality of its greens, its playability regardless to the weather conditions and its magnificent setting. The Paul Lawrie Junior Classic has become an annual event at Newburgh.

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

Extract from the book:

As you can imagine poor green-reading is not something that can be fixed easily. As the three circumstances above now exist they self-perpetuate errors and compensations. (Hey it’s taken more than 400 years to even recognize that there is a problem!) And here ‘s the important fact to remember: Green-reading isn ‘t one problem it ‘s two problems:

You can read all the detail in Chapter 7 but the net effect of the two problems is that the compensations don’t quite make up for the full amount of underread. So most golfers today miss about 85 percent of their putts below the hole without realizing either that such a high percentage miss to the low side or why any one putt misses (they usually blame some mechanical error such as pulling the putt pushing the putt or not hitting it solidly). Then yours truly comes along and points out the mistake they are making. And what happens? Some of them try to correct the situation by solving problem 1 so they play more break miss high get confused and ultimately putt no better and possibly even worse. Or they work on problem 2 try putting accurately (without compensations) on the line they’ve read miss everything low and ultimately putt worse. The result is that in neither case do golfers learn to read the true break or start putting better. They don’t understand how to solve the problems and can’t stand the negative results when they try to.

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

There is only one way to solve this green-reading problem and that is to correct both problems at the same time.

The Pelz Proposal for a Solution

I will devote the remainder of this chapter to showing you first how to see how much putts truly break – that is how to react greens (predict how much putts will truly break). Then 1 will show you how to groove a noncompensating stroke that will start your putts on your Aim line without subconscious compensations. This noncompensating stroke will be the one stroke that works for all your putts from here on out. It will make your putting game simpler and more effective than ever before.

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

Extract from the book:

It takes a talented athlete like Chi Chi to swing his putter to the left while holding the face open to the right and successfully make his ball go straight. But even he couldn’t do it all the time which is why I think he would have won quite a few more tournaments had he grooved and owned a simpler stroke. (Don’t think the cut stroke spins putts enough to make them slice across the green. The friction of the grass takes all spin off of putts the same as with hook-stroke putts.)

Another unusual – I wouldn’t go so far as to call it unique – putting style was put to good use for many years by Billy Casper. He locked his arms against his stomach and powered his putts purely by hinging his wrists (Figure 3.5.7). Once again Casper no longer uses this method and steers others away from it saying that it took far more time patience and practice to keep sharp than the pendulum stroke that is now popular among Tour pros.

However in his behalf I have to say that Billy won a lot of tournaments putting with his wrists so you know it can be done. I caution you though that you will have to devote yourself to hours and hours of practice for years and years and also play under enough pressure to learn how to handle the effects of adrenaline the way he did.

The Block Stroke Here’s a method that sounds almost ridiculous: Aim the putterface a foot to the left of your target on a straight putt then block the ball toward the hole. That’s what Lee Trevino has done throughout his career (Figure 3.5.8).

Methods of Putting 47 “block-strokes” better than Lee Trevino.

Every part of Lee’s game is built on aiming to the left then blocking his swing through impact so it’s little surprise he does this when putting too. In my opinion Trevino is another great player who achieved greatness in spite of his putting not because of it. And he agrees: Lee told me that if he had putted as well as Jack Nicklaus you might never have heard of the Golden Bear.

I believe him. He has always been a great ball-striker (the best I ever measured) and he putted reasonably well but never great. He is a very talented player who did well with a somewhat complex putting stroke. But he would have putted better and won more with a better (which to me means simpler) putting stroke.

Golf Swing Tips

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

Extract from the book:

Golf Tuition Newburgh On Ythan Golf Club

The chest and shoulders shouldn’t be turning, unless your arms are turning with them. In other words, you want to start your swing with a shoulder turn, but your arms should start swinging at EXACTLY the same time. They are an extension. They are connected. Furthermore, your arms shouldn’t be swinging unless your chest is rotating. Don’t start swinging your arms without starting the shoulder turn. They are connected. Your left elbow remains locked throughout the entire swing. When you complete your shoulder turn, your arms should stop as well. The goal will be to have your left arm exactly parallel to the ground. Your elbow is still locked. When it gets there…STOP. Do not continue to swing your arms.
