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?

Wrangaton Golf Club

Wrangaton Golf Club was formed in 1895 when a 9 hole golf course was established on rented land on the foot of the southern edge of Dartmoor.The club now owns the land, and has added a further 50 acres of parkland below the original course and a further 9 holes were established in 1988. The result is a uniquely different and challenging course, 9 holes moorland and 9 holes parkland, situated only 5 minutes off the A38between South Brent and Ivybridge.

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

Extract from the book:

First I’ll deal with green speed (Figure 13.4.3). If you can become proficient at knowing how fast greens are you can imagine how fast the ball is going to roll. Without this there is no way to predict how much it is going to break. There are three ways to learn green speeds: (1) measure them exactly; (2) measure them approximately; and (3) observe other golfers’ results over time.

Develop Your Artistic Senses (Feel Touch Green-Reading) 329 inch backswing strokes discussed in section 12.2) on the practice green before you play each round. Make it a habit to roll three balls on a flat part of the putting green one with each reference stroke. Then roll them in the opposite direction to average out any slope or grain effects. Over time you’ll learn what to expect while each day you’ll get a visual judgment of how the greens are rolling. The accuracy of this method depends on the consistency of your reference strokes; therefore this method will never be as accurate as learning the green-speed scale from the superintendent.

3. As usual the easiest way to do something provides the least satisfying results. You can try to get a feel for green speed by watching other golfers putt noticing how much speed their putts seem to have as they roll versus the way the greens look. This is better than being oblivious to green speed but there’s no point of reference and at best it gives you only an approximation of the speed you’ll be dealing with on any given day.

How About Slopes?

Have you ever trained yourself to see slopes in greens? Can you see detect or differentiate between one slope and another? Unfortunately for most golfers the answer to both of these questions is no. It’s not that seeing a slope is difficult it’s just that most golfers have never looked at slopes with any point of reference (again no feedback) that would allow them to learn which is what.

The learning process to recognize slopes is almost identical to learning green speeds. There are three ways: (1) measure them; (2) learn to recognize them relative to a reference system; and (3) pay attention when you are on the course and hope for the best.

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

Extract from the book:

The list of others who make pure-pendulum strokes reads like a who’s who of great putters including Bob Charles Greg Norman Dave Stockton Andy North Loren Roberts and Phil Mickelson (Figure 3.5.13). Having now looked at these great putters and seeing how simple their strokes are doesn’t it make you want to start putting that way? If it does you are reading the right book because my Putting Bible is mostly about why what and how to do it!

Methods of Putting 51

Back to what 1 said at the beginning of this chapter: Simpler is better. Because the mechanics of a pendulum motion get the job done and because they are the simplest then they must be the best. And they are the best because they are easier to learn and master than any of the more complex motions.

But be careful because there is not just one single pendulum motion. A pendulum stroke can be swung down the line around the body or across the line. It can be swung with the face rotating or with the face kept square. It can be pushed or pulled or allowed to swing in a consistent natural rhythm.

The best of all these is the simplest of the simple the pure-in-line vertically swinging face-always-square natural-rhythm pendulum. It is the way to go if you want to putt your most consistently and most successfully.

I know it took a little time to get through all the possible strokes from the hardest to the easiest. But it is important that you understand the big picture of putting. It will help if you want to putt your best because at some point in your putting practice you’re going to doubt that what you’re doing is right that what you’re doing is working. And that’s when you’re going to fall back on the knowledge imparted here that to putt your best you must commit to the simplest stroke that will work for you and then believe in it. Come hell or high water – or missing 20 putts in a row – you must believe in the stroke you have committed to and stay with it until you groove it and own it. Only then can you ever hope to move toward achieving your personal optimum putting performances.

So let ‘s get into the putting methods techniques and systems most golfers use find out which is best for you and learn how to incorporate them mold them refine them and fit them into a system that will allow you to improve and then optimize your ability to putt.

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

At the end of step two, you reached the top of your backswing. As soon, as you get there, start your downswing. As you start the downswing, make sure to remind yourself to keep your arms “connected” to your chest and shoulders. Stay connected all the way through the ball. Your hands and arms only swing as the shoulders rotate. If you start your downswing by rotating your chest, without starting to swing your arms, you will most definitely end up slicing the ball. If you swing your arms before rotating your chest, you will most likely hook the ball. Staying connected will always produce the straightest ball.
