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?

Norfolk Golf & Country Club

The Norfolk Golf & Country Club is considered to be one of the finest new courses in East Anglia. Built in 1993 and allowed to mature for two years before play commenced on it, this new course meanders through more than 200 acres of rolling Norfolk countryside, including ancient ditches, hedging and woodland. The greens built to USGA specification are substantial, with the 9th being over 1000 square yards. All the changes and improvements have been made to ensure the course is testing but fair to golfers of all ability.

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

Extract from the book:

Attention to Detail

Even putting which is the simplest swing in the game has 15 building blocks. Ignore any one of them at your own peril. While it is not difficult to putt there are many factors vital to putting success and you have to have a handle on all of them to be consistently successful.

The complexity of putting is one of its greatest aspects. The motion is simple enough that anyone can do it and a few do it surprisingly well without knowing quite how. But much of putting is very subtle so much so that it slips past most golfers by masquerading as art God-given talent or luck. Figure 15.6.2 shows four

U.S. Open champions I have been fortunate enough to work with all of whom have been referred to as “gifted putters.” While each one of them putts great I know from personal experience how hard they worked to putt that well and it was no gift. They earned it!

The more you understand simplify and habitualize your stroke the more you can concentrate on the right things at the right time. For example a “look” (with focus and attention) is better than a glance when you want to see and feel how far away the hole appears to be. A focused look is a vital ingredient to getting your feel and touch for distance.

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

Fingers Hands and Wrists

Most golfers control their putting with the small muscles of their hands wrists and forearms. These are the muscles that control most of the things we do in life – hitting things twisting things moving things – so using our hands and forearms in golf is instinctive and therefore feels natural to us. But instinct and natu

68 The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics ralness don’ t necessarily mean correct. And in fact trying to find a way to putt that is both initially comfortable and natural usually leads to disaster.

Supplying the power which determines how fast and how far your putts will roll from the muscles of your wrists hands and fingers (Figure 4.5.1) is bad. Wrist motion (hinging) causes putterface angle variations and hand and wrist muscles lend to tighten up and not work well under even slight pressure. But powering your putts with these muscles also brings an added complication: It’s not had all the time.

You can practice putting this way for years and as long as you putt on the course exactly the way you do in practice – relaxed and calm – things will be reasonably okay. But wait until you get really excited. When your heart begins to beat faster because a putt really matters your body naturally produces adrenaline which makes all of your muscles stronger. Then all your practice goes out the window because the muscles that control your putting power are now stronger than they ever were on the putting green. Even if your stroke feels the way it did in practice the adrenaline-induced extra power will cause it to provide the wrong amount of energy to your putts and produce bad results on the course.

You Can’t Avoid Adrenaline Everybody gets to experience excitement and adrenaline in golf. It’s part of why we love the game and if you want to become a better player you must learn to deal with it. You must learn to play well when adrenaline is in your system. This is easy in the power game when you want to hit the ball as far you can with whatever club is in your hands. Adrenaline in your system helps you to do this. But putting is altogether different. You can’t take one less club on the green when you’re pumped up. And you certainly don ‘t want to putt the ball as far as you can.

Luckily there is a simple way to control adrenaline when putting. Learn to putt

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

Now just line everything up with that item and fire away. This method won’t cure all of your alignment problems, but it does give you a simple way to assure that you are on the right path. Many students have the habit of lining up way left or way right of the target. When the ball goes where they are “aiming”, they think they have a problem. If your ball consistently goes left or right of target, but flies straight, then your problem is your alignment. Try this simple method before every shot on the course and you’ll definitely drop a few strokes.
