My thought for this week is, “Don’t come up short on approach shots.” A study revealed that the most common miss by amateur golfers is short. When we look at club choice, amateurs select a club for approach shots that, if they hit it perfectly, will get to the middle of the green. Try a round where you choose a club that should get to the very back of the green, and then see if you hit more greens.

Contact us if we can help.
They say that “it only takes one great shot to bring you back again.”
Next time you’re out we want you to hit more great shots than usual.
Then we want you to hit even more the next time.
A set of irons working for you and not against you makes this so much easier to achieve.
You’ll square face to target; and sole to turf; experiencing the real joy of sweet contact
so much more often.
There are over 1,000 fitting options
on any single iron. Wow. Yes, lie angle;
shaft type; and length &
flex alone usually makes for over 900 options.
And we still haven’t touched grip type and size;
swing weight; or even the amount of offset.
The correct lie angle on your irons brings
the sole of the club back square to the
turf at impact. An incorrect lie angle will make
that very difficult to achieve. Depending on
whether you are toe or heel up at impact,
the face will bepointing to the hook or
slice side of your target at impact.
Why suffer that challenge?

Don’t suffer in silence. Let us help you hit more great shots.
Check out your lie angles with us.


We often get asked, especially by those looking to have better short games,
how they can learn to hit wedge shots with a lower trajectory that one-bounce and-check quickly.
Before we start on that journey there are three questions:

How are your wedges?
Do you have the right lofts, and are  your wedge
grooves sharp? Not only do you lose 1,000 rpm of spin with worn grooves, you’ll also launch the ball higher.

What ball do you play?
If you’re serious about wanting one hop and check,
then you need a premium golf ball that will spin much
more than a 2-pce, and launch a little lower.
Do you clean your grooves and dry your wedge
face before each shot? In tests conducted
with a launch monitor, a wet face lost up to 3,500 rpm
and added a whopping 8° to the launch.
This research shows that ball control requires the right equipment, cared for, and prepared for
the challenge with each shot. I guess that means rule one to ball control is
make sure you have the right equipment.


If you want to sharpen your short game, then learn how to control ball
flight and spin with your wedge. It’s a cool skill.
