January 2018 Monthly Friendly Tip

Happy New Year!  I sincerely hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas Season and a great ringing in of the New Year.

This is the time of year to make the effort to improve your game.  Think about what you really need to work on.  Is it your putting?  (It accounts for ½ of your total score).  Is it your chipping? (This gives you the opportunity to get that little white ball closer to the hole in order to save you putts.)

Is it the Full Swing motion?  How about getting off the tee? (It doesn’t do you any good to hit the ball 275 yards, if it’s 30 yards in the woods.)  Let’s not forget the ability to be able to put good shots together, back to back.  Mental game?  Sand?  Uneven Lies?  Iron shots?  Fairway Metals?  Hybrids? (These clubs really should be one of your best friends.)

I think you are beginning to get the idea that there is NEVER some part of your game that does not require “Tweaking”.  That’s why WE’RE HERE!  Take advantage of your off season to really work on those things you need help with the most.

How about equipment?  Could you use an upgrade to those clubs that have been gathering dust in the back corner of the garage?  Let us help you with that.  We can make suggestions to help you get more “User Friendly” equipment that is more suitable for your game.  Properly fit equipment will definitely help you score better and enjoy the game more.

I frequently find those students that have directional challenges simply need to work on their aim and alignment.  Also, if you wear corrective lenses – remember – that’s part of your “Equipment”.  It can affect your perception.  Sometimes what you “Think” you are seeing might not really be the case.

We would love to help you on ALL parts of your game.  Our winter lesson special is still in effect.  You still have plenty of time to get in those lessons before the April 1st deadline.  (Just in time for the Masters.)

Feel free to email me with any questions you might have.

My goal is always to help my students develop a love of the game that will last a lifetime.  Funny thing, the better you play, the more you LOVE the game.

Take care – and, as always – “Swing Happy”.  Let’s make 2018 your best golfing year ever!
