More details Tommy!

I heard from more than a few of you this week.  Thank you!  But I was taken to the woodshed!  You wanted some detailed information on what I thought and what the options were for the genuinely average (and below) golfer.  What ball to try, what irons to play, and what from Cobra did I think that was so head-turning.  I get it, not everyone can use strictly game-improvement equipment.  Some of us need a lot more help for the enjoyment of the game or at least look at mixing up the bag to make sure that folks like us can have some success on the course.

As for the irons, you’d be hard pressed not to want the Yonex CB-701 irons.  They have a forged body and stainless-steel face that’s made to flex and send the ball up and out. These were about as close as “set-it-and-forget-it” as you could get.  These are large, but responsive irons focused on feel for the golfer that would like a little more assistance.

It drew a large crowd because the word was getting out that it was performing so well. Granted Yonex is not a household name, but the performance is proof that they are definitely worth the investment. It’s one of our best-selling, performing and underrated brands. 

Demo heads will be coming in shortly.

King F9 Speedback


The F9 driver, fairway woods and hybrids are not to be missed.  While waiting my turn to hit them, virtually everyone that tried it on the indoor range was turning around with faces of disbelief, scratch golfers included.  Everything looked great and performed even better.  The faces on the driver and fairway woods are CNC milled to make them more consistent and perform better on off-center hits.  The lofts and face angles are adjustable, but the weights are only adjustable on the driver to move the center of gravity higher or lower to add or reduce spin.  The thing that made them ideal for the higher handicapper (and everyone else for that matter) were the Baffler rails on the bottom of the fairway woods and hybrids.  It made them easier to hit off the turf by interacting with the ground better.  Yes, it was a mat, but hitting woods off the ground can be challenging. 
Demo heads should be available within the next few weeks.

What's all the buzz about PING?

The PING G410

When I got my chance to hit them, they were very easy to get airborne, and they do an excellent job of balancing distance and accuracy.  These replacements for the G400 Irons are legit.  One of the best things I noticed is that they don’t look as big as the previous model, but all the help is still there, but more so.  Trust me; they go high and straight.  If you’ve never had the chance to hit a 185 yard 7-iron, here’s your chance.  Anytime to have a shorter club into a green that should be a welcome change to anyone’s game, regardless of your skill level.  Golf tends to get more fun that way.

And of course, the PING G410 hybrid is adjustable for the first time to change loft and lie to dial in a perfect fit and performance.  These will help tame those 200-yard shots and have you putting for birdie more often.  This hits hard and flies high.  It’s time to take that long iron from your bag and put a couple of these in instead. 
These are available to be fit as of now.

Find a better game

I can’t think of a single time when someone has said, “I want to make the game as hard as possible.”  Even golfers who shoot in the 70’s and below like a little forgiveness now and then.  And for folks like us, we should take a lesson from them.  Then maybe we can keep up with them and perform our best.

Shafts and myths

Let’s bust some myths and misunderstandings
You may have read or heard some say that “the shaft is the engine of the golf club”.
That metaphor isn’t right. If there’s an engine, then it’s you.
You create the energy. The shaft controls and channels that energy.
The shaft is more the transmission; allowing the shaft to return the clubhead square
to the target at impact. The shaft transfers the energy you create to the clubhead.
One of the questions you have to ask yourself is: do you have the right transmission for your engine and vehicle?
Are you maximizing the return on the energy you’re creating; and are you returning the clubhead square to target at impact?  
“If you’re losing distance as you get older each year, then it’s really
worthwhile looking at options to create faster clubhead speed
and a better energy transfer
Now let’s check
Ready for your transmission to be checked over? We have examples of shaft changes that have added as much as 30 yards to tee shots. With irons, we find significant improvements in shot dispersion.

How good could you be?

Talent is overrated
Geoff Colvin, in his theory of “Deliberate Practice”, contends that you can all be so much better at golf,
and much quicker than you imagine, with a better approach to practice.
 This isn’t about beating balls until your hands bleed.
It’s about having a sensible structure that accommodates the commitment you feel you can make.
There are four essential steps according to Colvin’s principals:
A personal plan that starts from your current reality, identifying the areas you can most easily improve, quickly.  Go beyond your comfort zone, practicing shots you are not comfortable with. Choosing to hit shots you can’t execute consistently or adequately might not seem like fun, but you need to push your boundaries deliberately. If you don’t have a lot of time for practice, then limit the new skills you’re trying to develop. You need, through repetition, to sear the new movements required into the brain. You need continual and specific feedback. You need to record your swing in practice or have a coach present. If the result is bad, you need the diagnosis as feedback. If the result is good, you need the positive affirmation of the movements that created the result. 
Start your journey. We want to help.
We want to help you on your quest for a better playing experience. Let us start you off with an assessment. Then, involve us in your progress. Let us provide feedback and guidance. Better golf shots, more often, is a great payoff.
