My Two Cents


"The most important shot in golf is the next one." - Ben Hogan

We have arrived at my favorite Major to watch, The Masters and the start of our season the Monday after.  Hopefully the weather will warmup and dry out.  The booking calendar will go live Wednesday the 10th and lessons start Monday the 15th.



Setup fundamentals review to start the season.

1) Grip: Hold the club with your base hand aligned correctly and your other hand providing light support.

2 & 3) Stance and Posture: Maintain an athletic stance with a straight back and balanced position.

4) Ball Position: Adjust the ball's position based on the club you're using for optimal shot trajectory.

5) Alignment:  Align your body parallel to the target line using an intermediate target to assist with alignment.

 Last month we looked at the grips and cleaned the clubs, now let’s prepare our bag.  Check to see if you have balls, tees, gloves, Band-Aids, tape, ball markers, towels, and a water bottle.  Pain relivers are also a good idea after a long winters break.

My two cents


He who is afraid to ask is ashamed of learning.

—Danish Proverb

Welcome to the first issue of our monthly newsletter! Our goal is to provide you with practice drills, equipment tips, commentary on golf events, and answers to your questions. We hope you enjoy it. Please let us know what you'd like to see in future issues!  

I would also like to congratulate Zach Peterson who has just graduated from the PGA program and become a Class A PGA Professional.  He is working at a private club in Kansas City and I am certain he will become a head Pro soon.  I. Couldn’t be prouder.  It's always nice when my students achieve their goals. 


When playing golf in the northern region during spring, consider taking up to two extra clubs when hitting over water. Colder water temperatures can cause the ball to drop sooner than when hitting over warm water. I found this tip useful until mid-June.



Spring is the time when everyone is eager to upgrade their clubs. I often hear "new year, new gear." I recommend cleaning your grips thoroughly with dish soap and hot water. Once dry, check if they offer a good grip. Play with them until the end of May or early June before deciding if you need new clubs. This approach allows for a more accurate assessment of your game and leads to a more effective club fitting. Remember, clubs are a significant investment meant to last for years, so it's important to make the best decision. If your grips are worn, consider getting them regripped. You can find quality grips at stores like the PGA Superstore or online on Amazon. While I offer grip installation services, I sell generic grips to keep costs down. If you need grips installed that you've purchased, there is a $20 installation fee.

Please enter your guess below, as well as any suggestions for what you would like to see in next month’s newsletter when we preview the Masters, the first major of the year, as we gear up for our opening day.
