Successful Day of Golf

Successful Day of Golf

Tags : 

We hosted a very successful Networking Event at Point Walter.  Thirty Golfers played 9 holes of golf, learnt quick and savvy ways to improve your game at our student centered golf clinic, and organized refreshments for a ‘fuel up’ at the days end.  This was also a perfect time to meet other people in a similar working environment.

Of course prizes were awarded for best score, longest drive and closes to the pin.   According to the feedback the days was one of the best networking events held this year.

Junior Golf Coaching

In conjunction with Point Walter Golf Course, Simply More Golf will be hosting junior golf camps these holidays.  With over 30 years of working with junior, amateur and professional golfers, we know that our Junior Golf Camp will be ‘better than par’.

Many juniors we have worked with in the past have gone on to play professional golf.  Golfers such as Trevor Immelman, Lydia Ko, Rory Sabatini, Louie Oostehuizen, Clarke Osborne, and many others we have had the pleasure to work with.  We have also helped many junior golfers journey through amateur golf and into a golf scholarships where they have won a range of American titles including ‘All American Colors’ for finishing in the Top 10 in the USA .

These holidays we are inviting kids ages 8 to 13, who are interested in golf.  Our goal is to inspire kids in the game which can offer them a prosperous future.  Please contact us for more information.


Congratulations Dawid Malan

Dawid Malan joined our Junior Golf Camps in the mid 90’s.  He showed tremendous sportsmanship and won a number of our junior tournaments we hosted.

It is with great pleasure to congratulate Dawid Malan for making the English Ashes Team.  He will be playing in Australia through December 2017 and 2018.  Of course, we will be catching up with him in December and will update you on any more news from our Golfing Alumni!

 


The Golf Club at Impact

The golf club can withstand a lot of force through the impact of the ball.  When watching a golf club impact a ball, it is hard to see the affects on the club and the ball.  As a result, we have a little video to show you how much your club can flex at the impact position.  We hope you enjoy this short video.


Your Golf Grips and Your Game

Did you know that your golf grips can affect your game!  In fact, there is a chance that your hook or slice is a result of your golf grips?

Think about this for a moment.  Your right hand is probably the same size of your left hand – right?  Then why is your right hand grip area thinner than your left hand grip area?  (The opposite applies if your are a left hand golfer)

Another point to think about is the size of your hands?  Surely your hand size is not the same as all golfers in the world?  Well..when you buy a set of clubs off the shelf, chance are that the grip size is set for average.

At Simply Golf we match grip size to your hands.  More importantly, we also alter the grip


Hitting it Longer

We have worked with a number of Long Drive Champions including Davyn Nola, Phyllius Meti, and Leanne Quinn.  When it comes to hitting it longer, there are a number of aspects you need to understand before you can gain more distance.  According to many Long Drive champions the most important aspect to learn is your golf club.  Each inch added to your club can either make or break your opportunity.

A good example with Davyn Nola’s driver.  Davyn can pick up club head speed in excess of 160 mph and is able to hit it about 453 m (an Australasian Record).  Davyn’s key to big hitting was knowing the exact length, flex and kick point of his driver.

Of course, we don’t all hit the ball like Davyn, but we can improve on distance and consistency if we know basics about our golf club.

After a driver fitting session, we built a driver for Peter, an everyday amateur that did not think he would get any more distance.  He was told that the longer the driver the longer the shot.  But in our session, we found that his ideal driver was nothing like the driver he had.  After he received his custom built driver, Peter went on to win the club championships and out drive all his opponents that had out driven him through the year.

Notably, not all golfers are going to win a championship immediately, but we do know that they will see improvement in their drives!
