SCORING GAME/STROKE SAVER SCHOOL
Without a doubt the fastest way to lower your scores is to improve your game from 60 yards and in. Learn how to reduce putts, get the ball up and down more often, build confidence getting out of the sand and watch your scores lower - without buying the $400 driver! The school will focus on five scoring/stroke saving skills: (1) building an effective pre-shot routine and stroke, (2) reading greens and controlling distance, (3) proper technique for chipping and club selection within 10 yards of the green, (4) mini-swings for pitching that can make or break your round from 10 to 60 yards from the green, and (5) learning to become more comfortable with sand shots so you are able to get the ball out in one shot, on the green, and closer to the hole more often.
Clubs needed: putter, all wedges, 7, 8 & 9 irons.
Instructor: Michael Barnett
Tuition: $99 per student per 3 hour session. Class size limited to first six paid registrants. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER AND PAY ONLINE.
