MONARCH DUNES ACADEMY
May Tip of the Month
2016 is approaching regarding rules change on long putters... You will have to conform by having your putter no longer than touching elbow. Of course if its longer than, that it just cant touch your body. Have you considered what the greatest putters in past do or have done:
Best LPGA Ladies putter Inbee Park = cross handed
Best Mens PGA Hottest putter right now = cross handed
Jim Furyk PGA Tour Recent winner = cross handed
Also know as left hand low...
Biggest benefit is it gives you a landmark up against your wrist to feel if butt of club is moving. Traditional way of putting does not.
Also consider what Matt Kuchar does = long enough putter that is just under his left elbow .
Other great putters go traditional style but forward press against target wrist and hold club there. Again so they can feel what butt of club is doing during stroke.
Don't forget about the claw grip especially if your hands are turned in and you can see 4 knuckles when hanging .
And there is the Grip Print way.
May Special: $125
Full Game Assessment / Tune up
April Tip of the Month
The longest shot in golf is the pull draw! To do this (per right handed golfer or opposite for left handed players) try aiming right of your target and close the club face about 10 degrees. Now re-grip the closed club face and swing nice and easy. You'll see the ball curve to the left and roll a long way.
$75: a strength and flexibility assessment, an equipment assessment and a swing video analysis.
