MONARCH DUNES ACADEMY

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.

April Special
$75: a strength and flexibility assessment, an equipment assessment and a swing video analysis.

Tip of the month
Want to hit the ball more consistently? Practice swinging through to your finish and hold finish for 3 seconds or more. Do this drill for 5 min a day maximum... Equals about 5 to 10 practice swings. Excellent strength and balance training for more consistent shots!
