Rip it and Chip it

11 Feb 2016 13:33:27 Z

Golfers with great long games tend to be weaker around the greens, and those with terrific short games often struggle with ball-striking. Why? Because a full swing and a chip or pitch are fundamentally opposite motions, yet many of us approach them the same way. The fix begins with understanding "kinematic sequence."

How Can This Website Help You?

Begin by asking yourself, what does golf mean to you?  Is it a casual round with some friends for exercise or fresh air with no bearing on the score?   Or is it working towards your highest level with the intention of walking inside the ropes in tournament play?

Everyone will answer the proposed question with a different answer and express a personal view on why and how golf should be played.  Some players are more serious, some are more scientific and some play for business and/or social reasons.  All responses are correct and share one common goal… everyone is striving to get better.

That is the key to this website… improvement!  This website will help you as a golfer get organized, map out a plan of attack and guide you along the way with long and short term goals.   Each student will receive a locker to track stats, measure progress, store video lessons, capture pictures and moments (most people are visual learners), and analyze equipment.  The locker system will offer each student a different perspective on his/her golf game but ultimately show growth in everyone’s game. 

In addition, this website will provide current golf news, information on events, equipment, golf schools and instructional support.  By utilizing all aspects of this site, your overall game will improve and I will be accessible for support!

    We won yesterday at AGC MG - low gross & low net! We started on hole #14 which is a par 3, it was playing 196 yards. I took my 3 wood & landed it 5 feet from the pin. I sank my putt for a birdie! It was a great way to start the round! My short game was on 🔥! After every chip onto the green, I said "Thank You, Mark Sheftic!"  
  • Lowest Score Ever at Olympic

    Mark –   It all came together yesterday, shot a 84 at Olympic.  Great distance with the driver and a solid short game.  I might have broker 80 if my putter was a little more cooperative.  Story of the game.  Thanks again for all your work with me over the past 6 months.   I’ve never felt more confident or in-control on a course.   BW

    Dear Mark,   I am not certain the news made it to the Learning Center, but Liz Zug and I amazingly won the Inaugural Women’s Member-Member Event.  You were with Liz and I for the two day, as your name came up a number of times. Liz and I would say, “Mark would say this or suggest that.”  Thank you for your ‘coaching’!  Not in our wildest dreams did we think we would accomplish anything that meaningful.   I think Liz mentioned that she has a lesson set up with you today. I will certainly be back for more!   My thanks as always,   Margery
