Stop me if you’ve heard this before

There’s new equipment on the horizon

PING will be formally introducing the Glide 3.0 Wedges in July for early August release.  Pictured is the updated version of the iconic Eye2 wedge that used to be available in a full set back in the 1980s.  Famously, Phil Mickelson used one in a tournament and was the impetus that Roger Cleveland used to create Callaway’s PM wedge.  “Rumor” has it that TaylorMade created the Hi-Toe as their answer to the Callaway offering.  This is the design that started it all.

However, the 3.0s will also be available in traditional designs as well.
Personally, I cannot wait!

Tips and tricks

Or real coaching?

"I keep reading all the magazines that give tips and tricks to improve my game.  I’ve tried many of them, but they really don’t last.  Is there something I can do to make the tips last longer?" ~ C.

Anything that you read or see needs to be put into practice often.  However, tips and tricks are usually quick fixes.  They’re there to get you out of trouble, in my opinion.  I’ve used many of them in tough spots, but as soon as I was done, the tip was out of my head.  I was left looking for another tip or searching for where I found the previous one.  But I’ve discovered that true instruction is what sticks long term

Individual lessons and packages are available at The Golf Station, and we’d be happy to get you on the path to long term success.

Putting problems?

Rick Wright is the best putting coach
I’ve ever worked with.

There I said it.  Rick is and has worked with Touring Professionals, and his approach is not only novel but basic.  Professionals are using his tools to improve their putting.  Our juniors who have taken lessons from him have benefitted from his instruction.

Moreover, selfishly, my three-putts are down dramatically, and it only took 45 minutes for me to get better and he didn’t have even his complement of training aids to include the Putting T-Bar to get the full impact of what he was doing.  I told my son only a bit of what I was taught, and he started putting more putts around the hole.  I’m sold and need another lesson soon.

If you want to get better, Rick is your guy.  Period.  If you’re ready for a putting lesson, give us a call in the store at 817.595.4653, and we’ll let Rick know, and we’ll work to schedule another event.

Could you save 5 shots per round?

Setup and practice
That’s right. Get into a better setup (with equipment that allows it). Add more focus to the face angle of your putter at address and at impact; and you’ll sink more putts in the 6 to 12-foot range.
This is a bottom line investment.
That’s right. Your improvement drops immediately to your scorecard. So benchmark your current performance by taking 10x10 foot putts on a perfectly flat lie.

 Then consider at least two of three investments.

1. A putter that fits you, allowing you to get comfortably into the perfect
with assistance to make sure your face angle is square to the target line.

2. An assessment and refresher to help make sure that, along with setup
and posture,your grip and stroke allow the face to return square to target at impact.

3. Practice with aids to help make sure your face angle is as square as possible at address and at impact.

Improving your ability to square the putter face at impact will likely take up to 5 shots off your scorecard. There are some simple keys to that improvement. Setup and putter are part of that equation. So come and see us.
