Well, it has been a while!
Before I discuss winter golf lessons and winter practice, let me first mention what has been happening.
Since my post in July, 2013, I had a heart attack in late July of 2013 and received two stents, my mother, who lives several hundred miles from me, became very ill in spring of this year (2014) and I spent a few months with her before she passed away in late July. If you are over age 60, I highly recommend that you receive your Shingles Vaccination.
In September of this year I had an operation on my left hip to repair a torn labrum (the cartilage that sets between the top of the hip and the hip socket at the pelvis). The operation was successful and I have been undergoing significant physical therapy.
Needless to say, I had many priorities in addition to golf during the past year-plus timeframe. I did provided a number of lessons, and have worked on developing my book, "Playing Golf Instruction Manual" into an e-book that can be distributed through multiple well-known outlets in addition to my own golf instruction courses website (I am still working on the proper format for the chapters of the book to be converted into the ebooks).
Now, I can talk a little about winter golf lessons and practice.
I am providing winter golf lessons at Golf-O-Rama indoor golf simulator facility in Brighton, MI.
Although you can play simulations of numerous elite golf courses , such as Augusta National, St. Andrews, Pebble Beach, and others, for instructional and practice purposes we use the "driving range" program for the simulators as it provides important golf swing and ball flight information, such as ball speed, launch angle, loft, and distance.
For better golfers we can work on club gap management (know your distances for each club) as well as basic swing improvements. For the new or inexperienced golfer, we can help you thoroughly enjoy golf as you learn proper technique, skills, and shots with every club, putter through the driver.
I can only provide limited indoor lessons this winter as I will be spending time in Florida during January and February. I will, however, prepare several lessons that you can use indoors at your own home during the winter months that will help keep your game in tune and ready for play next spring, or for that pre-season trip to somewhere warm.
Hit 'em straight!
