Congrats to Jim Furyk for winning the $10,000,000 FedEx Championship.


Try this the next time that you are on the driving range: As you address the ball, pull your elbows closer together and then let your shoulders take the club back only about a foot or two. Let the club head return and thru the ball another foot or two. At the same time keep your head from moving left, right, up or down. This will give you the feeling of a good take away.



 If so, please read this…GRAND LAKE GOLF SCHOOL is now the official “Fitter” for 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% 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 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.

GOLF JOKE of the WEEK  (Not golf but worth including)

When Dan found out he was going to inherit a fortune when his sickly father died, he decided he needed a woman to enjoy it with. So, one evening he went to a singles bar where he spotted the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. Her natural beauty took his breath away. “I may look like just an ordinary man,” he said as he walked up to her, “but in just a few years, my father will die, and I’ll inherit 20 million dollars.” Impressed, the woman went home with him that evening and, three days later, she became his stepmother. Women are so much better at estate planning than men.
