A couple tournament wins can get you on your Ryder Cup team. And we’re just a couple weeks away from Club Championships. Personal fitness, mental preparedness and practice are important to ready yourself. But all too often, golfers neglect the quality and state of their equipment. Ask yourself: What’s the condition of your wedges? How are the grooves, gapping, swing weight, and your grips? How are your grips? If you haven’t regripped within the last year – you’re overdue!

Dad’s Turn to Shine!

July 6th, 2024

  Now it’s Dad’s turn to shine!  After raising two great kids as both ranked swimmers and golfers, it is now Tim Painton’s turn to shine.  Tim came in with a set of clubs his father had built for him roughly 30 years ago.  As a former basketball player, he certainly needed longer clubs so we put him through a fitting and dialed him in to a new TaylorMade Qi 10 driver and hybrid, Ping G430 irons and Cleveland RTX 6 wedge.  In jest, Tim brought in a Medicus dual-hinge training driver we helped his son Spencer use when he was first fit with us in 2009.  Crazy picture…Driver Fitting Gone Bad!!  Great family! As a side note, Tim has a great business and has helped us with all of our voice and data communication needs.  Thanks for all you do Tim and Spencer. Here are some of his son, Spencer’s accomplishments:   Spencer Painton Qualifies for 2015 U.S. Amateur Championship Spencer Painton Wins Colorado Boys Golf 5a High School Championship Spencer Painton Qualifies for 2013 U.S. Junior Amateur Championships!

No. 1 – Strokes Gained Overall No. 2 – Strokes Gained Off the Tee No. 1 – Strokes Gained Approach to Green So what are his secrets other than unbelievable talent and composure? Tee it High and Let it Fly! In his post round press conference Scottie was candid about teeing it high and letting it fly!  He said, the fairways at Augusta are fairly wide so penalties were not that significant.  And, the longer off the tee you are, the shorter your shot to the green.  That allowed him to hit very select shots into the greens.  Most of our golfers want to hit more GIR this year so here are a couple posts to read on getting more distance off the tee! Four Keys to Optimizing Driver Distance Dial in Your Distances to the Green “Knowing your distances and distance gaps is critical to hitting more GIR.  And, most... Read More
