Free Sample Golf Tips

Below is a sample of some of my golf tips. You can use them specifically on the course to lower your score. Once you do, however, I'm sure you'll want the "full meal deal."

Try out my Distance Calculator.  You can input different conditions to see how they affect your tee shots.

Tip #1: Reading Putts

If you plumb bob a 20 foot putt so that the bottom of the shaft covers the ball and the top of the shaft is aligned 1 inch to the right of the hole, how much break do you account for? On a medium paced green, you would aim inches right of the hole and on a fast paced green you would aim 16 inches right of the hole.

If you would like to know how to plumb and then interpret how much break there is, you can purchase my putting matrix which is used by "Feel Good Golf Learning Centers" in Florida to teach their students. The amount the putt breaks depends on the speed of the green, the slope and the distance of the putt. My matrix tells it all!

Tip #2: Elevation Changes

For most golfers, elevation changes (uphill/downhill shots) are a guessing game. Doubt runs rampant!

A 166 yard shot that must climb to a green 10 yards above must be played as a 177 yard shot. In addition, when the ball lands, it won't stop as quickly because its impact angle is lower than normal.

I can teach you how to judge fairly accurately the amount of elevation change (no special equipment needed) and how much shorter or further the shot will play. I can even teach you how to take into account the wind.

Tip #3: Playing the Wind

How can you measure the speed of the wind without a special device? How do you determine how the wind will affect your shot?

A 150 yard shot played into a 5 mph wind will play 159 yards.

A 150 yard shot played with a 5 mph wind will play 146 yards.

I can teach you how to measure the speed of the wind my just dropping grass. I can teach you how to determine, very simply, how far the shot will play.
