You hear the hype.
You read the new statistics.
You wonder to yourself: is this going to do anything for MY game?

Kyle Bauer - Gained 15 yards!

I am here to tell you that I was even astounded at the difference it made to my shots.
What have you got to lose? There were only gains here....

The new Titleist TS2/TS3 Drivers will be here Thursday, August 30th from 12 - 4pm. 

The newest Titleist drivers began their rigorous validation process at the 118th U.S. Open® Championship. They chose to begin on the toughest stage in golf to ensure that these new drivers perform under the highest degree of pressure. And they're off to a fast start, with 17 golfers choosing to play a TS2 or TS3 driver right out of the gate.

Join us on August 30th from 12 - 4 pm, to see if you can outpace Kyle's improved distance!

Over the past three weeks, we’ve looked at why Grinds on your Wedges are crucial,
and how the right Grinds make it easier to play greenside shots.

There are three main methods to tackling shots around the green:
Your Wedges should allow you to face any challenge and take any opportunity from 50 yards and in.
Do your current lofts and ‘Grinds’ make that easier? We’re here to help you Become a Short Game Wizard.

We want you to improve your score on Par 3’s.
Part of that is avoiding 5’s, 6’s and even worse.
Sometimes the hole designer is looking to harm your scorecard.
Consider this real Par 3 (it’s the 200 yard+ 12th on White River Country Club):

Simple Tip #4
Sometimes a Par 3 is really a Par 4. Play it that way.
The vast majority of golfers should lay up in the safe area,
and then pitch the ball up onto the green.
It’s probably a 4, a chunked chip might mean a 5, but it could be a 3.
But out of bounds, and you’re playing 3 from the tee.
In the water and you’re playing 3 from a drop zone that forces you to skirt the water again.
Now about that chunked chip shot…


Billy Casper was a great golfer.
It’s worth noting that, in his
1 stroke 1959 US Open victory
at Winged Foot, he laid up in
every round on the Par 3 17th.

You’ll be faced with a course management challenge on all approach shots,
not just Par 3’s. Try playing a round where you take a ‘safety first’ approach to every shot.
Check out your score. Is it an improvement if you play within yourself?
Course management is an important part of your game; if you’d be interested
in an accompanied round to help with your course management,
