A fitting like no other


“I’ve been fit in several places, but I’ve never been fit like this!  You’ve changed my game and taught me something at the same time. 
Thank you!”
~ D.

I heard a saying once:  “You never own this game; you just rent it for a while.”  I have no idea where I heard it, but man is it true!  What we do here at The Golf Station is to remove as many variables as possible to help you rent the game more often.  Practice is important, as is instruction. However, your gear matters.  Coincidentally, we put the young man that gave us this quote this week in a TaylorMade M5 Driver in an Accra shaft.  A half hour later, we literally made a weapon for him that was
producing low-spin lasers.

When you marry all three, we’re all bound to get better.  But if we make sure your gear REALLY fits you by not only changing shafts to see what works but adding in some teaching to help you get the most out of your swing, then that’s a win-win for you and us.  We’ve done our part to help you play better, and you’re happier because you’re now capable of doing something you’ve maybe not done in years, or ever. 

Our way of fitting, along with The Golfing Machine, will help you see gains in your game that you probably haven’t seen before.  The Golfing Machine is a physics based approach using and understanding leverage to make the body work properly.  Yeah, it’s science and I can’t even pretend like I to understand it.  It works.  That’s all that I and Tim’s other students need to know.  Including one of our PGA Tour Pros who had a Top 5 finish at the Byron Nelson last week.  He’s well aware that it works.

 

Get noticed!

 

Whenever I play a round of golf or go virtually anywhere, to be honest, and wear my Golf Station polo or pullover, I ALWAYS get asked about the store.  The most memorable for me was on an airplane flying back home from Dallas.  The gentleman next to me saw the logo on the sleeve of my pullover, and we began to talk about European business and how golf can be used as a tool.  Then we talked about our kids. 
That’s something I know about more than European business dealings!

But one thing I know is that your logo on a shirt, jacket, or accessories can get your company noticed too.  Whether you’re getting ready for a tradeshow or sending your employees out on a job, you only have one opportunity to make a good first impression and keep your
company successful. 

We offer a full range of items from almost every major apparel manufacturer that encompasses a broad spectrum of price points, with some with low minimum amounts required to place an order.


Promotional items such as umbrellas, divot tools, ball markers, or even my personal favorite, golf balls are a great way to get your name and logo out there.  I think there’s something pretty classy about a company handing out a sleeve of ProV1 balls and a nice, heavy ball marker to a customer as a thank you for their business.  I remember where I got them from and am more likely willing to give them return business.  It’s a lock that I’ll be back, not just because they gave me a sleeve of balls, but that they think enough of their customers to thank them. 
It’s a nice touch, and your business deserves that.


Well, I do like ProV1s too.  In yellow.  I hope you’re reading this

Simplify your short game

 
Practice, check, repeat on the course
 
Knowing exactly how far you hit each wedge with a short, medium and full swing is vital if you want to become an accurate wedge player. You can also start to practice different shots. 
 
9-3 swing 11-1 swing Full swing
 
 
Bump and runs.
Flop shot.
Low shot into back pin position. Low controlled shot into the wind. High approach shot into
front pin position.
 
Armed with your wedge chart and your favorite distance with your favorite wedge, you’ll know where to lay-up if you can’t get to the green with your approach. That’s better game management. Every golfer, whatever their handicap, should have a wedge chart.
 
Fill your wedge chart
To gauge a distance for each of your swings for each wedge can be difficult without assistance. So why not book a session with us. Let’s complete your wedge chart and at the same time, we can look over your three swings. Maybe there are other improvements.

Ten shots better

 
Confidence counts
 
In our attempts to show you that, if you’re a mid to higher handicap golfer, you can take ten shots off your scorecard, we identified four areas where most of you lose shots. One of those areas is in the 15 – 40 yard range.
 
 
 
 Yes, most golfers miss the green with their approach shot, and leave themselves what ought to be a very simple short-pitch shot. One they should be able to play with confidence and competence.
 
Benchmark your skill level
Set yourself up on a flat lie 15-yard short of the green, take ten shots and see how many you can get within 8 feet and how many within 4 feet. Now take the same test off an uphill lie. Then a side-hill lie. Finally, a downhill lie. How well do you do? Do you understand the technique that makes this a simple shot to play well? A technique that will mean no “fat” or “thin” shots?
 

 
The ten-shot assessment
Why not come and benchmark your skill with us? You’ll be surprised at the simple pointers that make a big impact instantly. For most, just learning how to use bounce, to take away the requirement for perfect contact, will make a really big difference. Let’s identify how many shots we can improve your game by.
