In our current poll, 43% of our readers want to improve Greens in Regulation (GIR)!  They know that the key to scoring and having more fun is to hit more greens.  So easier said than done, right?  Here are some tips that will help you drop as much as 1.8 strokes off your game, according to TrackMan data, by simply hitting more GIR: Book your fitting NOW!   Hit Your Drives Longer Duh!  If you are 10-20 yards longer off the tee, you will be hitting shorter shots into the green!  TrackMan tests have shown that GIR improves at least 50% for the average golfer when hitting shorter irons into the green!  We will be re-posting some of these tips shortly but for now see our series:  Getting More Distance Off the Tee! Play More Forgiving Irons New irons in the last several years have been not only hotter (more distance) but more forgiving.  Your shot dispersion can be reduced up to 30% according to some companies.  Examples are Callaway APEX 19, PXG Gen 3 0311 XF, TaylorMade p790, Srixon Z785 and Ping G410.  Why punish yourself when taking advantage of modern technology can help you have more fun.

Junior Golfer Club Fitting Starts Now!

January 13th, 2020

It is never too early to start thinking about junior golfer club fitting!  Junior golf, especially competitive junior golf seems to go year ’round. In the past year, we have fit golfers as young as eight years old.  And these kids are GOOD!  Most of the ones we have fit have qualified for U.S. Kids Regional, National or International competition.  One of the kids we fit went to the U.S. Kids Drive, Pitch and Putt finals at Augusta National and then went on to anchor his Boys State Championship team here in Colorado.  And we have juniors that have either won the State Championship for their team or been part of the winning team! Book your Junior Fitting Here! What to Consider in a Junior Golf Clubfitting So, the first thing we make sure of in fitting for juniors is the the shaft weight and head weight in all of their clubs is not too heavy.  Do NOT, I repeat, do NOT cut down your old set of clubs (Dad!) for your son or daughter!  Too heavy…too stiff…all leading to bad swing habits and discouragement.  If you are just getting your son or daughter started and they are in the...

What Are Your 2020 Golf Goals?

December 16th, 2019

As you reflect on 2019 and look forward to 2020, if you are like most of us, there is room for improvement!  Even the tour pros spend a lot of time with their coaches analyzing their rounds and making a plan to improve. Getting Analytical One of the top degrees coming out of college these days is Data Analyst.  The era of “Big Data” is here, even in the golf industry.  When Mark Broadie wrote “Every Shot Counts” in 2014, it was used very little on the PGA Tour.  Now, Strokes Gained is used and commented on regularly by tour players, analysts, and commentators.   Golf Digest recently published this article on how analytics are being used on tour!   The results have been pretty dramatic for several players!  So, take a look at your scorecards and find out where you are losing strokes.  Missed fairways?  OB?  Poor iron shots?  Short-siding your wedges?  Putting letting you down?  Fill out our survey on the right of this page with your biggest area for improvement!

Wedge Fitting

November 21st, 2019

Well, it’s about time!  Wedge fittings with multiple shaft options.  We finally decided to get a bit more sophisticated in our wedge fittings so our customers can see and feel the difference in wedge performance.  Most significant aspect to our new fitting process will be the ability to try different shafts with our fitting wedge heads. We will be using our indoor fitting studio, but we have a couple of different mat options to show the performance difference from rough or fairway.  Early testing is pretty awesome!

NEW! Miura MB-101 Iron

October 28th, 2019

Well, the wait was worth it.  The Miura MB-101 is a beautiful looking iron with shades of influence from the original MB-001.  Designed for the pure blade player, the MB-101 has all of the classic looks you expect from Miura but better turf interaction and feel.  Available in sets only, 3-PW and 4-PW.   I wish Miura would allow split sets as a combo set of MC-501 3-6 and MB-101 7-PW would be awesome.  I put in my 2-cents worth.  Will see what happens!                       Dan Sueltz

Get the Right Shaft to Hit Your Driver Straight AND Long

October 13th, 2019

Get the Right Shaft to Hit Your Driver Straight AND Long Bombing and Gouging The problem with bombing off the tee and gouging from the rough is that for us average golfers, it only works 13 percent of the time, according to a study done by Golf Digest and TrackMan.  But we also know that getting 20 more yards off the tee can drop up to 3 strokes off your game.  So the real answer is to hit your driver long AND straight.  The secret is getting the proper shaft to make this happen! Book Your Driver Fitting Here! Getting the Right Fit We always advise you on what happens when golf shafts are not right for your swing.  A lot of golfers that have never been through our fitting process, think that the majority of their miss-hits are caused by their swing.  And 25% of golfers are having trouble with their drivers (see Poll at the right of this blog).   Fortunately, that is not always the case!  We help golfers of all abilities hit longer, straighter drives by selecting the proper length, shaft weight, shaft flex, swing weight and shaft profile (trajectory and spin) for their unique swing.

Get Your 2020 Clubfitting While Your Swing is Still Grooved.

September 11th, 2019

Get  your 2020 clubfitting while your swing is still grooved.  Now that the season in the northern climates of the world is getting a little cooler, take an introspective look at your game and then go get a good clubfitting.  Don’t wait until 2020 as there are a lot of new head, shaft and grip options hitting the market this fall, and your swing is still in good shape from playing this season. The first thing you should do is take a look at where you were successful (putting, chipping, driving?) and where you struggled (hybrids, distance gaps, accuracy with irons?).  Be honest and think about where you lost strokes and what happened (thin, fat, poor contact, slice, hook?).  Your fitter should ask you a lot of questions about your shots and what you want to accomplish:  Improved Accuracy?  Increased Distance?  More Consistency?  Then you should concentrate on what segments of your game are costing you the most strokes and eroding your confidence. Our 2019 Player Survey indicates that the biggest “problem” clubs in our golfers bags are Long Irons (31%), Driver (25%),  and 3 Fairway Wood (24%).  It’s time for a fitting to get those problem clubs fixed!

Are The Premium Irons Really Worth It?

August 19th, 2019

It started with PXG.  Well, no, it started with HONMA.  And the other Japanese companies like Miura, EPON and Royal Collection.  But it was clear from the start that PXG was differentiating itself with premium designed products and premium pricing.  What has followed has been a continual introduction of premium products, especially irons, by many of the major companies in the golf industry.  Titleist CNCPT, Callway EPIC Forged and the new TaylorMade P790Ti are the latest releases in this space.  Some are available now while others will be available later in the Fall of 2019. So, schedule your fitting and find out which of these new premium irons will work best for you! Premium Designs If you look at the majority of the new introductions like PXG, there definitely are some advanced engineering techniques that are potentially causing prices to increase.  The combination of forged bodies, thinner face designs, hollow heads with special fill elements make the manufacturing process to assemble these irons more expensive versus traditional forged or cast clubs.  Are the materials more expensive?  Maybe…steel prices have gone up somewhat. Search for Distance AND Forgiveness So, there is no way a manufacturer can provide a more forgiving iron to... Read More

August 8th, 2019

Mizuno is revamping their MP iron lineup in  dramatic way!  All the way from the traditional MP-20 (blade) to a completely new forged MP-20 Hot Metal Blade (HMB).  And in between, the MP-20 MMC with multi-material construction.  We have always been Mizuno fanatics and this new line-up makes us even more excited.  Mizuno has taken a step back in time and is adding a layer of copper in these models to improve feel.  Every single tester liked the feel of the new models better than the previous MP-18 line.
