Have you made progress with your game this year?

OK, we’re six months into another year. You might have started full of ambition with resolutions to improve. How’s that gone so far? Congratulations to those who’ve embraced a golf journey that includes improvement. Anyone who wants to make the second half of the year special, please contact us.

Centre of Gravity (CoG) matters

CoG can impact tee shot distance by 20+ metres

Below are two drivers with exactly the same loft. Let’s assume they also have an identical shaft and shaft length.

The white DOT marks the CoG

The white line through the centre of each driver represents the neutral axis. Almost all drivers have a CoG that is above this line. Both the distance above, and how forward or back the CoG is, will impact on the angle the ball actually launches, the amount of spin on the ball, and the amount of MOI (forgiveness the driver has).

The driver on the left will go farther for a slower swing speed golfer as it will launch higher and with more spin. The driver on the right will go farther for a more aggressive golfer with a faster swing speed because it will launch a little lower and spin a lot less.

The difference between CoG locations in drivers can be measured in millimetres, but the difference in distance can be measured in tens of metres.

CoG affects the launch conditions (angle and spin) and that significantly impacts on how far your ball will travel.

Fix your millimetres and metres

Get every metre off the tee your potential deserves. Come and have a tee shot assessment and let’s see how we can add 20, 30 and even more metres to your tee shots.

A better life for them

Children have to be digitally literate, but they also need to invest in movement and athletic ability, their health and well-being, and their interpersonal skills.

Let us add balance to their lives

Have your child enroll into one of our group sessions to learn to play golf, and we’ll have them outdoors, interacting, learning new skills, and having a whole stack of fun they can take out onto the golf course. They won’t stop playing computer games, but for a couple of hours each time we’ll have them off the phone, out from in front of the screen, engaging in fun activity.

Happy golfing!

Steve
