Risk-Reward

Risk-Reward

 

Is the risk worth the reward?  When playing par 5’s it’s tough not to want to “go for it” every time.  You have a access what is really going on with the golf course.

Course management alone can help you save strokes.  Knowing your carry yardages for all clubs plays a roll in this.  Having a yardage book or measuring device, the weather conditions, and really how are you performing that particular day determines the choice you make.  Watch this video for some helpful tips to save some golf shot.

How To Build A Wedge Range

How To Build A Wedge Range

 

Want to score better?  Of course you do!  The Wedge Range at Boyne Mountain Resort opened this past July to rave reviews!  A place to help you with your game from 100 yards and in!

In this video, we discuss how we built the wedge range at Boyne Mountain Resort including the costs involved and time.  You would be amazed that for only a few dollars you can add so much to your facility. 

What’s a Wedge Range?  Our wedge range at Boyne Mountain is specifically designed for you to “dial” in your shots from 30-100 yards.  Spread out in a baseball diamond shape at the back of the Boyne Mountain Learning Center are cement targets placed in the ground.

Hit the target and watch your ball sail into the air! All distances on the Wedge Range are measured from a plate mounted in the middle of the teeing ground back there.  So, where ever you go, you can play from just about any distance you want.

Now you will know exactly how far you hit your clubs! Come up and play on Northern Michigan’s first Wedge Range!  Lower your scores and have fun!

How To Regrip A Golf Club

How To Regrip A Golf Club

 

In this video, Mike spends some time with Steve Heuston owner of Precision Fit Golf teaching us the finer points of how to regrip a golf club.

Most people do not really think too much about your golf grips.  Getting them re griped when needed is so important.  If you do play a ton of golf, the more often you need new grips.

Another thing that I have seen is improper grip size on some of my at least new players.  Grip size is so important.  Sometimes we can really help your golf game by having the club in your hand properly.  Get fit for your grips.  It makes a big difference.

Fairway Bunker Shots

Fairway Bunker Shots 

 

In this video, Mike discusses the finer points of hitting fairway bunker shots.

Mike’s Rules For Hitting Fairway Bunker Shots

  1.  Use a club with enough loft to get the ball out of the bunker.  Make sure you get it out!

  2.  Take one extra golf club.  So if you determine that you are 7-iron distance away, take a 6-iron.

  3. Set-Up:  Make sure you hit the golf ball first.  Have a wider base to stabilize the legs and play the ball a little bit back in your stance.   Limit the leg motion for a better strike.

Hopefully these tips will help you hit your bunker shots better.
