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?

Hatfeild Hall, although originally built between 1598 and 1608 for Gervase Hatfeild and his wife Grace, has little Jacobean about it now. Its arched windows typify the late eighteenth century gothic style and constitute much of its charm today. The Hall, most of which was built in 1775, remained in the Hatfeild family for almost 300 years. It was then sold in 1897 at an auction in this Strafford Arms, Wakefield, for £3,750.

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

Extract from the book:

Phony-Hole Drill

The ” Phony-Hole Drill ” is one of my favorites for working on touch especially when the putting green is crowded. It utilizes a device I carry in my bag at all times the Phony-Hole a thin flexible circle of black rubber just smaller than the diameter of a real hole. The Phony-Hole almost looks like a real hole when it lies on the surface of a green is thin enough to let putts roll smoothly over it and comes in handy when the practice green is full of golfers and there is no open hole available. By throwing down a phony-Hole (Figure 13.2.8) you create your own target to putt to get away from the majority of the lumpy-donut effects and work on speed control by seeing if the putts you “make”(those that roll over the Phony-Hole) stop near 17 inches behind the hole.

To practice the Phony-Hole Drill mark a spot near the edge of the green with a tee then walk off the putt length you want to practice. Drop the phony-Hole and walk the same distance to the other side. Mark this spot with another tee and you are ready to putt.

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

The rules for the Phony-Hole Drill are the same as for one of our primary feel-development drills the 20-foot drill (for details see pages 315 and 316). The one difference is that when practicing touch with the Phony-Hole change your putt distance every time you drill.

Putting to the Phony-Hole is also good for a quick warm-up before a round. Putt three halls from opposite directions at least twice before every round you play rehearsing your routine and ritual and holding your finish to watch your putts until they stop (about 17 inches behind the Phony-Hole). You will be surprised at how quickly your touch for distance improves.

Extract from the book:

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 67

If you don ‘t learn to aim correctly then no one (myself and my Scoring Game Schools included) will ever be able to teach you a good putting stroke. A good putting stroke with bad aim will miss every time and your subconscious will never let you learn a stroke that it knows will miss every time. Instead you ‘ll begin compensating. However once you learn to aim accurately along the Aimline you choose your putting instincts will lead you to make better less compensating strokes and that leads to holing more putts.

4.5 Power Source

Your power source is the part of your body that supplies the power to control and move the putter through the impact zone of your stroke. The muscles you use to control your putter determine your putting power source. The three most common power sources used in putting are: (1) the small muscles of the fingers hands wrists and forearms; (2) the arms and shoulders; and (3) body motion.

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

Imagine the line that has been drawn is your spine (axis). When the backswing is made, just rotate everything around that axis. If you do this properly, you will be on the correct plane. This correct swing plane will help your power, accuracy, and consistency. Keep the left arm locked as shown.
