Good Golf Swing Ebooks?
Hey gang. Any golfers out there have golf swing e-books that they’d like to recommend? I’m just getting started and can’t really afford professional lessons or coaching so I’m looking for some good instructional ebooks, preferably ones with clear instructions and lots of photos, etc. Many thanks for your help.
I’d pretty highly recommend The Simple Golf Swing (with a nice review of it located here: http://www.usfreeads.com/741561-cls.html )
Golf swing guides are a dime a dozen but The Simple Golf Swing is one of the better written ones, and, most importantly, has tons of illustrations and photos to back up the sound advice.
in a high school golf match, is it a penalty to kneel on the putting surface?
During a recent high school match, a girl was penalized a stroke according to the opposing coach due to kneeling on the putting surface? No where does it state that penalty in the rules book. I didnt know if there was other ruling on the judgement.
There is no USGA rule against kneeling on the putting green. Unless there was a Local Rule for this particular event, there would be no penalty… And if there is a local rule like that, it would be very unusual. On the USGA website there is a section on golf etiquette on preventing unnecessary damage to the course. If this player was kneeling hard enough to be causing damage to the green and was doing it on a consistent basis, the USGA has the following recommendation on their website – http://www.usga.org/etiquette/tips/Golf-Etiquette-101.
If players follow the guidelines in this Section, it will make the game more enjoyable for everyone.
If a player consistently disregards these guidelines during a round or over a period of time to the detriment of others, it is recommended that the Committee consider taking appropriate disciplinary action against the offending player. Such action may, for example, include prohibiting play for a limited time on the course or in a certain number of competitions. This is considered to be justifiable in terms of protecting the interest of the majority of golfers who wish to play in accordance with these guidelines.
In the case of a serious breach of Etiquette, the Committee may disqualify a player under Rule 33-7.
