Maybe it is the clubs!! (Partly, anyway)

Grand Lake Golf Club at Patricia Island is now the official “Fitter” for in this area. This is a new fitting system in which we can measure and instantaneously if you have the right frequency shafts in your clubs. The inventor and developer proved to me that 60% of all golfers are playing with the wrong shaft frequency. Simplified, this just means you either get the clubface square back to the ball naturally or by force. Naturally is, of course, best. Go to for information. 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, you can ask us about our demo plan. Call Steve at 918-257-4967 or Gregg Compton at 515-333-9977.

Question: “Why do I hit behind the ball one time and then the top half of the ball the next time?”

Answer: “It all boils down to one major, primary, critically important thing – the lead arm is bending at the elbow during the backswing.”
