New technology


Smart shoes
Salted Shoe Company

Balance plate technology has become popular amongst teaching pros - the mats that you stand on when you hit balls that measure how your weight moves during your swing. The team at Korean-based Salted Shoes Company has taken that idea and shrunk it to fit in your golf shoes. Pair the shoes with the app on your phone, and you’ll see a readout of how your weight moved during the swing, allowing you to see what changes you need to make in how you shift your weight.


The cover drill in action!


The golf swing is a complicated event, full of many moving parts and varying demands on your body at different points during the motion. A well-oiled swing flawlessly keeps all of these parts in order by synchronizing their movement, from takeaway to finish. Here's a great drill you can use on the course to synchronize your swing and create more powerful, and more accurate golf shots.


Assume your address position with your club soled behind the ball. Then, keeping your clubhead in position, remove your target hand (the left for right-handers) from the handle and place it on the butt end of the club so that you can hold the club in position with that hand only. Now, simulate a golf swing using your right hand, allowing it to move to the top of your swing, then down to the ball until it moves under your front forearm through impact.

I call this drill the Cover Drill (Corey Pavin once used it as part of his preshot routine) because it forces the front shoulder to move upward through impact – just as it should – without spinning open. Thus, your shoulder covers the ball at impact and returns your arms back in front of you like they were at address.
 

If you think your swing needs some finessing, or you're struggling with the cover drill, contact us and make an appointment with one of our pros!

Everyone wants forgiveness

 
And you want it all ways
 
If your handicap is over 18, then there’s a good chance that you either don’t get great height on your approach shots, and/or often lose the ball to a fade or slice. There’s technology to help: Super Game Improvement!
 
 

 
Too many of our inexperienced and higher handicap golfers miss out on the fitting process. They don’t think they’re skilled enough. Where’s the logic? "I’m not that good so I’ll play with an iron that makes the game harder!" Get fitted. Make the game easier.

 
Changing shapes

Super game improvement irons used to look like mini metal woods. No longer. Materials, manufacturing and smart design deliver technical assistance in good-looking models. Talk to us. Let us show you. Oh, and let us FIT you.

Knock it down. Knock it close.

 
 
Played with the right technique and this shot spins a ton. The ball stops and even reverses. Setup and ball position at address are important. So is an angle of attack that is shallower than many of you have. You’ll even see the very best slightly deloft the club at impact.
 
 
Choosing between a high 56° wedge shot or a knock down three-quarter 52° wedge approach; the best players will take the knock down every time.

 
Learn to play this shot
If you want to be more accurate from 100 metres in; setting up more birdies or a par-save; then most amateurs would benefit enormously if they could hit their wedge shots on a lower trajectory with more spin. Come on. Be better. It’s time to learn a new skill.
