What do you want out of your game?

If you watched the last day of the PGA Championship, you would have seen more excitement than anyone expected. Congratulations to Brooks Koepka. It was a tough week for most of the participants, but he's tougher than most.

It's always a debate with golf. Should it be such an overwhelming challenge as we saw at Bethpage, or should it be a game that offers more reward and enjoyment more often?

There's never going to be a "right" answer for everyone. But there doesn't have to be. You play the game the way you want to. You take on the challenges you want to. You get out of golf, what you want to get out of it. Remember that.

Get properly fitted

Get a better experience on the golf course!

It’s sure been an unpredictable spring so far. One day it’s 75 and sunny and the next it’s 31 and snowing. However, this year more than ever we sense that many of you want to improve your golf game. With improvement in mind, we’d like to address two areas that can make a big difference in your scores this year:

    1. Properly fitted equipment
    2. Competition

Properly fitted equipment:
Can you imagine running a marathon in shoes that are two sizes too big or too small? I can’t actually imagine running a marathon at all, but I’m fully aware that if my shoes didn’t fit, both my performance and my feet would suffer.

I believe it makes more sense for your equipment to fit you and your swing than for you to make swing adjustments that fit your equipment. Many of the players I work with want to get better, and many times it’s not their mechanics causing under-performance—it’s the ill-fitting equipment they use. Both Nate and I believe this strongly enough that we purchased FlightScope, so the people we coach and fit will have access to perfect information.

If you aren’t familiar with FlightScope, click here and read up on the newest and most accurate technology available.

Here’s the process we utilize to ensure the equipment you purchase from us is exactly what you need to improve:
1. The Interview
Questions help us to identify your ball-flight tendencies, equipment specifications, likes and dislikes about your current set, and your needs and preferences for new equipment. The dialogue will continue throughout the fitting to ensure that your expectations are being met every step of the way.
2. Static Fitting
After the interview, we determine your initial club specifications based on your preferences, needs, and ability. For drivers, fairways, and hybrids, we'll discuss the general performance characteristics of different models, lofts, and shafts. For an iron fitting, your height and wrist-to-floor measurement are taken to help calculate your static lie angle and shaft length, and your hand dimensions are used to calculate your static grip size. 
3. Dynamic Swing Test
For an iron fitting, you will hit a few golf balls from an impact board with special tape on the sole of the club. When the club hits the board, it will leave a mark on the tape that helps the fitter better understand how your setup, posture, and swing affect the clubhead’s position at impact. We’ll then make adjustments to arrive at your lie angle.
For drivers, fairway woods, and hybrids, face tape or spray is applied to the face, and the impact marks are analyzed for consistency to determine the optimal shaft length.
4. Ball-Flight Analysis
Once the first three steps are completed, we put you on the FlightScope to ensure the fit is accurate and your chances of improved performance are maximized.

The second step to maximizing your improvement is putting yourself in more competitive endeavors. Tournaments, outings, and leagues are a great way to gauge if you’re performing better. All three of our facilities offer leagues that are great chances for you to compete, meet new players, and get out of your comfort zone. I strongly suggest to all of my clients that they regularly compete if they want to improve.

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.

Ten shots better

Worthwhile practice that pays back
How easy should a chip shot be? What should you be averaging to hole out from within 10 yards of the green playing a chip shot?
 How many times out of 10, do you take 2 and how many times is it 3 shots? Are you as good as you would be with a putter in hand?
A very common fault we see with less experienced golfers, is an attempt to “flick” at the ball on chip shots. Too much wrist action ends up with too many shots thinned, and certainly very inconsistent contact. If you’re not really in control of this shot, then come and learn the correct technique.
Then practice using some simple aids – as shown here – and set out to gain control over where your ball lands and how much it rolls. Watch Martin Hall show you a neat practice station to perfect your technique.

The ten-shot assessment
The right technique on just four shorter golf shots, can save most golfers 10 shots and more in a round. For many that’s a single figure handicap. For all, it’s a round full of great saves, and more opportunities. Start with an assessment. Let’s discover how many shots we can improve your game by.
