  1. Gregg Foley back teaching Tuesday July 24th

    For those who know Gregg and for those who don't.... Gregg is coming back Tuesday July 24th to help out with our swings. I started seeing him in the offseason and he really improved my ballstriking. Going to work on my Father and my wife's swing this year. Just thought I would put an FYI...

  2. One Plane Swing Instructors?

    Lately I've been pretty committed to learning and practicing the one plane swing (I guess Jim Hardy's book is the best reference). I have swing software and what not at home and have been analyzing video intermittently but feel that I can really sharpen things up with the aid of an instructor. ...

  4. wet conditions

    We have had 31 days of rain in the last 50 days, not all rain all day but a ton of water has made the fairways very soft. For a guy that traps the ball this is terrible as I cannot compress the ball off the fairway at all...short of learning to "pick" the ball what else can I do except suffer?
