(LAST CHANCE)

JUNIOR GOLF CAMP – SOUTH END OF LAKE

Grand Cherokee (Dam) , Langley – July 11, 12, 13, 14

Just a brief note on my Junior Camps: I really emphasize that golf is meant to be FUN; that the kids get some self esteem out of the camp experience, and ultimately some knowledge. We have loaner junior clubs. Call me at 918-257-4967 for details (Ages 6 to 15); 9am to Noon (includes lunch); Cost is $150.

NEW - SHAFT FLEX TECHNOLOGY -

“Helps the amateurs more than the pros!”

If you aren’t “SHAFT FLEX FITTED” you are at a disadvantage before you even tee up.

So, please read this…GRAND LAKE GOLF SCHOOL is now the official “Fitter” for www.fitchip.com in this area. This is a new fitting system in which we can measure instantaneously if you have the right frequency shafts in your clubs. The inventor and developer proved to me that 60 percent of all golfers are playing with the wrong shaft frequency. Simplified, this just means you either get the club face square back to the ball naturally or by force. Go to www.fitchip.com. Naturally is of course best. We offer a fitting and swing lesson for $50; If you replace and order your shafts at $45 each including grip, we credit the $50 to your purchase. Or, ask us about our demo plan. Call Steve at 918-257-4967.

LADIES ATTENTION

I have a Ladies Only Clinic every Saturday morning at 10 AM at Patricia Island Golf Club and Estates. Gregg Compton assists me and we simply give you tips and suggestions while you hit balls on the driving range. The cost is $10 per person. Anyone can come from beginners to low handicappers and you do not have to be a member at Patricia.

GOLF TIP OF THE WEEK

Observe your playing buddy and see if their knees are moving very much during their swing. If they're knees are moving, they're skiing, not golfing. The back knee especially should not move very much.

If these tips don’t help, call me at 918-257-4967.

JOKE OF THE WEEK

A small private plane was flying over southwest Florida when all of a sudden the engine died, miles from any airport. The pilot turned to his wife and said, “Don’t worry honey, there are dozens of golf courses in this area and I’ll just land on one their fairways.”

To which she replied, “What do you mean don’t worry? I’ve seen you play and you never hit the fairway.”
