I know this sounds like a set-up but one of our customers dropped his handicap index from a 3.2 to 1.0 this year, a 70% decrease. What was his secret? The short game. For low handicappers, dropping even one stroke is a big achievement. Usually the low handicapper has a solid tee game and iron play so it comes down to chipping it close(r) and sinking more putts. For an 18 handicapper to drop 70%, or 12.6 strokes would take a lot of work on all aspects of the golf game. So what are your plans for next year to improve your handicap?

Chipping? Putting? If you do not know where you are losing strokes to average, you may be working on the wrong things. Some of your loss of strokes could be from improperly fit equipment so don’t count out the inconsistency in your game from that perspective.

Anyone who has played at Red Sky understands completely how hard a score of 66 is, let alone on the final day of a tournament! Congrats again Izzy for your hard work and dedication to the game. Keep up the good work!

Ignacio is an awesome young man and came to visit us in early August. We built him a new set of blended Mizuno clubs with SteelFiber shafts as he has outgrown his US Kids set. Well, who would have expected him to win his first Rocky Mountain Junior Golf Tour event at the Broadmoor in a playoff? Ignacio also is Venezuela’s representative to the Junior Latin American Golf team. Good luck, Ignacio, when you had back to Caracas next week. See you next year so we can tweak your set as part of our Lifetime Fitting program. Check out his scorecard…
