Your 2019 golf resolutions

Among the resolutions people will have made for 2019, many will fall under the categories of “Health & well-being;” “Social engagement;” and “Time for yourself.” Guess what? Golf delivers on all of those.

Some of you will be reading this from warmer climates. Get out. Walk. Play golf. It’s good for your whole well-being.

Those of you who can’t fly south should still find the time to get outside. Keep walking. Stay fit and healthy. The good weather will come again.

Shafts and myths

Let’s bust some myths and misunderstandings
You may have read or heard some say that “the shaft is the engine of the golf club”.
That metaphor isn’t right. If there’s an engine, then it’s you.
You create the energy. The shaft controls and channels that energy.
The shaft is more the transmission; allowing the shaft to return the clubhead square
to the target at impact. The shaft transfers the energy you create to the clubhead.
One of the questions you have to ask yourself is: do you have the right transmission for your engine and vehicle?
Are you maximising the return on the energy you’re creating; and are you returning the clubhead square to target at impact?  
“If you’re losing distance as you get each year older, then it’s really
worth while looking at options to create faster clubhead speed
and a better energy transfer.”
Now let’s check
Ready for your transmission to be checked over? We have examples of shaft changes that have added as much as 30 yards to tee shots. With irons we find big improvements in shot dispersion.

Strengthen your core

Not the shoulders and hands
If you’re going to have a better golfing summer then the first step for most is to simplify the golf swing starting with rule #1.
The hands hold the golf club. That’s it. It’s that simple. They don’t initiate either the backswing or downswing.
They grip the golf club
Your core controls your upper body rotation. Not your arms or shoulders. It’s your core.
Start now – at home
Don’t wait for the season to start. Don’t wait to visit us to make the adjustments, putting your core in charge. Get prepared.
