Why You Need Your Own Clubs

Ladies, learning to golf this year? Why you need your own clubs.

Golf clubs are not all the same. The worst thing you can do for your development is tell yourself you will buy a set of golf clubs once you get better. The truth is you will get better sooner with a set of clubs fitted for your skill level and body type. Ladies golf clubs are lightweight with graphite shafts, shorter, more flexible and have smaller grips. These features will suit many females out there.   Read More >>>

Follow these steps to be prepared to play better golf next spring!   Read More >>>



Caddie Chronicles: The Rise of a PGA Star

The week I spent as a Caddie during the Nova Scotia Open is one of most amazing weeks of my career and personal life – A week I will never forget! Any chance I can get to be inside the ropes of a professional golf event I want to be there.

I first met Abraham Ancer at last year’s Tournament and was on the bag for him on Friday. He didn’t make the cut, but he did make a charge on the back 9. I saw that he was 39th on the money list this year. So I sent him a quick note on twitter congratulating him on his impressive play and asked if he was coming to Halifax again. He responded by asking me to be his caddie.   Read More >>>

Learn to Golf: For Runners

Follow these 6 Steps to become a Golfer this Summer

I am a golfer.

Earlier this year I had a great meeting with Stacy Chestnutt, Race Director for Sole Sisters Women’s Race. We share a similar passion to see women empower one another and encourage ladies and girls to become physically active. Stacy is a runner, a serious runner. I learned that day that Stacy has never swung a golf club in her life. Later, I was thinking about our meeting and thought to myself, If you can run 40 marathons, you can play golf!

I once heard Marlene talk when I was a young pro and was blown away by all her accomplishments!2004 saw Marlene Stewart Streit inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame - the only Canadian to have earned that honour. Born in Alberta in 1932, Marlene learned to play golf at Lookout Point GC in Ontario. She has won more amateur titles and awards than any Canadian golfer and is still active today in promoting and growing the game of golf. #GolfCanada125

Here’s some great advice from my friend in Fredericton. Follow his page for more info to help your game. Connors GolfCheck your pressure and weight distribution at address. This a common discussion with clients.
Weight on toes: is very unstable and causes a change in position upon returning to the ball. This often causes the golfer to stand up and lose good golf posture, making it hard to get a good consistent centred strike.
Weight on heels: also unstable and causes golfer to move closer to the ball at impact. This causes shanks, pulls, hooks, etc. It leaves the golfer feeling “stuck” and creates a handsy or arms only swing.
Good even pressure leaves you in a good athletic position and set up for a nice consistent swing and strike. #trackman #trackmangolf #trackmancertified #mytpi #tpicertified #tpigolf #superspeedgolf #superspeedcertified #golfinstruction #growthegame #statisticalanalysis #fredericton #newbrunswick

Testimonials

As a beginner golfer I can enjoy the game without intimidation or fear. Several scheduled tee times per week make it possible to pick and choose times and courses convenient to the golfer. It’s been a great summer of social golfing and of skill development. I look forward to next season.
