Ian Hayes talks game improvement…

Mohammed Gani has recently become a member at Zwartkop. He is 17 years old and is a keen golfer, playing off a 15 handicap. He has been playing with irons that are much shorter than standard, and with steel, stiff shafts.

I recently gave Mo an assessment on the driving range and he explained to me that his goal was to get down to a single figure. After taking a look at his swing and build we worked out that he needed a new set of irons with graphite shafts.

While his swing was really good, his out dated equipment was holding him back. so, we fitted him with Cleveland CBX irons...and he’s loving them.

Fast forward a couple of days and Mo was on the course playing 9 holes on Tuesday this week. He played really well and very nearly aced the 7th hole. His ball pitched just a couple of feet short and rolled over the hole.

If you want to play better golf and you believe your equipment is holding you back, contact me on (012)654-2111/ ian@zwartkopcc.co.za and let me take a look. It doesn’t always mean buying new equipment – there may just be a tweak which will have you enjoying your game more!

Shooting between 85 & 100?

Then you’ll get the most benefit from a fitting
Too many golfers think that a fitting is for the very best players. In fact, if you’re shooting between 85 and 100, you’ll see a much bigger difference to your scorecard than anyone else if you play with fitted golf clubs.
Clubs that fit your swing, size, athleticism, and your strength will not only minimise the impact of poor shots; they will make it easier to develop a better swing technique.
Sure, if you’re shooting north of a hundred and missing the target with a wild slice or hook, then there are swing fundamentals to develop as a priority.

Did you buy clubs off the rack?
If you didn’t have a fitting to find the clubs with the right specifications to make it easier to hit better golf shots, then come along and see us. Often it isn’t a matter of buying new clubs. We can change certain aspects of your existing clubs.

Your performance/enjoyment

There’s compelling evidence that improving your putting and short game creates the quickest results on your scorecard. But does that lead to the quickest improvement in enjoyment? You all start each hole with hope and ambition.
It’s not so much that you’ve found the fairway that’s enjoyable (although it is). It’s the fact that you’ve set up an approach shot to the green and it's now all about opportunity and not recovery.

More fairways?
We’re not trying to turn most of you into a Tour Professional. We help you find ways to get more fulfillment out of your experience on the golf course. If you want to find more fairways off the tee, then we’re ready and waiting.
