As we all get ready for a big year at PGC.
I have had a wonderful week helping members get more from their game. Shooting 6 under par doesn't come anywhere near the rewards that helping you guys gives me!
With the sides match and light nights only some 6 weeks away we are starting to fill up the Professional Shop ahead of a busy 2017 at PGC.
Wow! That's got you thinking hasn't it………. Maybe it's time to call one of the Professional staff and sharpen the swing so you are ready for good golf in 2017.
This member is very pleased he chose to get his game ready with me this week!
Well done Geoff, huge change to the ball flight after a combination adjustment to client and kit!
Another success story is this young man!
Will Walne who came to me 5 years ago off 12 is now off playing off a handicap of 3.6.
Recently we started again with lessons as Will chases his target of achieving his new goal of getting down to scratch.
This week we talked distance off the tee and neither of us expected what came next. As I'm sure you can appreciate, a 4 handicap golfer is working with tight levels of quality in their action so making huge improvements to performance is never as easy as it can be with say, a higher handicap golfer.
Using FlightScope Launch monitor we found Will's driver numbers were as follows:
Swing speed average = 104.5MPH increased to 115MPH
Carry distance average = 221yds increased to 265 YARDS
Launch angle = 9 degrees increased to 12 degrees
Spin rate = 2200RPM increaed to 2300RPM
10mph speed gain at this level is massive (1mph = 3 yards) and this was the result of a change to his wrist hinge process. It's all very exciting for Will as the season gets ever closer! Will very kindly sent me this testimonial -
"45 minutes 45 yards!
Had my regular lesson with Andy yesterday. On recording me hit 5 shots with my regular driver swing on the video Tec in the teaching room Andy gave me a couple of pointers on my driver swing. The next 5 were hit like no others I've ever hit before. From averaging a 220 yard carry with my original swing, I went to averaging 265 yards and increasing my swing speed by 10 mph! We soon had to stop this however due to risk of damage to houses at the back of the range!
Genuinely I know how ridiculous this sounds. But I am a 4 handicap golfer and like to think I know what I'm doing to a degree! And didn't think a jump in distance like this would be achievable for someone who has played as much golf as myself in such a short period of time!
It just shows what a skilled eye can spot! Cheers Andy I owe you one (well about 45 really!)"
