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?

There are two golf clubs in Wynyard – we are directly under Fossil Bluff and if you can’t see the boats tied up at the Wynyard Wharf on the Inglis River from in front of the clubhouse – you are at the wrong course!The Wynyard Golf Club is a great little nine hole course situated in a delightfully attractive setting on the western banks of the Inglis River and directly underneath Fossil Bluff at Wynyard on the North West Coast of Tasmania.

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

Extract from the book:

A common result is the unexpectedly weak putt that either doesn’t make it to the hole or breaks dramatically to the low side. If you have this problem or suspect that your hips rotate or slide as you putt practice putting with your hips against a doorjamb (Figure 12.5.4). Just as with the hair drill above it won’t take you long to learn how it feels to not move your hips.

Stand in Cement

Here’s a way to solve all of your lower-body motion problems but it will work only if you have a good imagination and react to visualization. Stand over a putt and imagine that your lower body – from feet to hips – is inside a barrel filled with cement. Then imagine that the cement has hardened solid as a rock. If this image is vivid enough you won’t be able to move your lower body (Figure 12.5.5) when you putt. Try this on a practice green and I’ll bet you leave the first putt short. (I accomplish the same effect in our schools by holding the student’s body still.) Keeping the lower body still robs golfers of power they never knew they were giving to their putts so they leave them short until they learn to putt without the extra motion.

Balance Board if your hips slide forward or away from the hole during the stroke try making putting strokes while standing on a balance board (Figure 12.5.6) keeping it bal

I recommend this device because it’s fun and it gets the golfer to focus on his or her body motion and balance.

The balance board doesn’t teach a motionless lower body but it strengthens the muscles that influence balance. Stepping off the board after just five minutes’ work the balance muscles in your legs will be quivering and tired but your lower body will feel solid as you stand on the ground. If you use the balance board over

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

Extract from the book:

The easiest way to putt is with the “flow-lines” of your body aligned parallel-left of your Aimline (any line which is parallel to your Aimline and to the left of it is defined as “parallel-left of the Aimline). You’re probably not familiar with the term “flow-lines ” so look at Figure 4.10.7. The lines of flow through my shoulders forearms hips knees and feet are all parallel and to the left of my Aimline which is shown by the shaded white line on the green.

As I mentioned earlier (section 4.7) your putter will tend to swing naturally down the Aimline through impact if your shoulders are aligned parallel to that direction unless you do something to prevent this move with the muscles of your hands and wrists. So it’s very important to start your setup with the flow-line of your shoulders parallel to your Aimline.

To emphasize the power of this concept my “bad-flow-line” setup is shown in Figure 4.10.8. Look at my shoulder flow-line. From this position do you expect my putter to naturally swing (flow) down the Aimline? No way! It doesn’t do it when Perfy sets up and swings this way and it won’t swing down my Aimline either unless 1 compensate and use my muscles to make it do so.

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 99

Once your shoulders are in place your attention should turn to the flow-line through your forearms as they are next most important in determining how your putter will swing through the impact zone. While all of this may sound very simple and in truth it can be for some golfers it does not turn out that way. A sure sign of trouble is the golfer who carries his right (trailing) forearm above and outside the perfect forearm plane as shown in Figure 4.10.9. This is the forearm power position from which it is difficult for the right forearm to not move over and in front of the left forearm through impact. I can assure you that most golfers who putt from this forearm position miss putts to the left when they get excited anxious or scared.

Forearm rotation is probably the most frequent killer of putting strokes I see in my schools. The forearm-power position is easy to get into because it feels natural. Well it is natural but it’s still wrong and it is something you have to resist.

Some golfers even roll the right forearm over after starting with their forearms level (Figure 4.10.10). This happens because they rotate their forearms for every other shot in golf and it feels like the natural thing to do in their putting stroke too. Watch out for this trap! There is absolutely no reason to try to supply power or directional control to your putter from the rotation of your forearms. If you let your forearms swing back and through straight down the line and imagine main taining your forearms ‘ perfect parallel-left alignment you ll feel a perfectly natural putting stroke. And the back of your left hand and your putterface will remain square to your intended line at all times.
