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?

Seacroft Golf Club

This Championship Links has been in existence since 1895 as a members owned family club and proud of it.It is a traditional links out and back layout on quite a narrow site adjacent to the Gibraltar Point nature reserve. Adaptation to the modern game has not spoiled the gloriously old fashioned feel to the golf with tight undulating and hogsback fairways and a number of blind or semi-blind shots, seventy five bunkers and the occasional impenetrable buckthorn. For our course is an “English Nature Site of Special Scientific Interest” where golf and the environment joins together in harmony. There are glorious views over the nature reserve, the Wash and to the distant Norfolk coastline from various holes.

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

Extract from the book:

The final addition to your Putting Track practice sessions is to work on making a pure-in-line-square down-the-Aimline stroke on breaking putts. Don’t do this right

274 Improve Your Stroke Mechanics away but after several sessions of good stroke-path results in the track and when it’s easy to hold your follow-through on-line for five seconds make one small change. After aiming the track at your target can put a small but visible piece of tape (any color as long as you can see it) directly behind the can then move the can six inches to the left. Now imagine you’re looking at a putt with six inches of break which requires seeing an Aimline that starts six inches outside the right edge of the cup. Don’t change anything but the location of the hole in your mind’s eye. Make your last look down the Aimline (at the tape not the can) then execute a perfect in-track stroke and hold your follow-through on the Aimline (between the rails without touching them). This is how you begin acclimating your stroke path to the Aimline for breaking putts. In the following session move the can a few inches to the right of the tape and practice a stroke for a left-to-right break of at least several inches. Go back to straight-down-the-line practice for straight putts in every third session.

Use the Elevated Aimline on the Green

After a few months your path should be getting well grooved and you will want to take some of your practice outdoors onto a green. Set up an Elevated Aimline (elastic string attached to two stakes running vertically nine inches above the actual Aim-line) for a straight putt and be sure to hold your finish after each attempt so you immediately see if your path finished inside on-line or outside your desired path (Figure 12.1.6). Then find a 6-inch breaking putt and aim your Elevated Aimline 6inches outside of the hole. See if you can keep your stroke under it just like you did on your indoor breaking putt practice. But be sure you aim the Elevated Aimline

I mprove Your Stroke Mechanics 275 properly when you practice breaking puns: You can’t fool your subconscious and you don’t want to force yourself to follow through down a line that isn’t right. Another feedback device for checking your putter path is the Pathfinder (Figure 12.1.7). Several Tour caddies use these see-through plastic plates so they can

Pathfinder stand behind the golfer close one eye align the bottom circle on the ball and the top circle where he tells you he is aiming. Then watch the putter motion relative to the dashed Aimline running between the two circles.

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

Extract from the book:

So does any golfer want to move the putter or aim the putterface in any direction other than the desired starting line of the putt at the moment of impact? Of course not! Yet some golfers think they can achieve the perfect path through impact by using a screen-door stroke which rotates around their bodies. They obviously don’t realize that the timing of impact (and ball position) must be perfect every time if they hope to have a chance of holing any putts. And they don’t realize that the in-line-square stroke motion minimizes the effects of inconsistencies in timing and ball position.

One Negative

I’m not trying to sell you an in-line putting stroke. If this pils stroke seems too si mple and you want to make putting more difficult that’s okay by me. I’m just trying to inform you that a pure-in-line stroke is the easiest and best way to putt. But it’s not a panacea and there is one potential drawback to putting with this stroke (it’s the same drawback as for the screen-door stroke too).

To see this drawback look at how Perfy misses a simple three-foot putt with

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 85 his perfect in-line-square stroke (Figure 4.7.9). The problem is obvious: If you don’t align your shoulders parallel to the desired starting line for the putt even the perfect stroke path and a square putter blade won’t start the ball rolling on the right line.

So if you are going to take my advice and develop an in-line-square stroke you must be absolutely sure that as you learn this stroke you also learn to address the ball with your shoulders square (parallel-left) to your putting line. And as you will learn in Chapter 11 setting up parallel-left has other benefits as well.

After we get through the remaining sections, you will understand that this will change your swing plane a bit. Your swing plane will become more horizontal, the straighter you stand up. Please realize that nothing else should change. You will swing each of your clubs in exactly the same fashion (found below). This repositioning at setup will have a huge effect on the outcome of your shot, so please take some time to see where you are the most comfortable.
