The eyes have it!

Someone once asked me if I knew which one of my eyes was dominant. I had no idea until I tried this simple drill. If you are missing your putts you may be aiming wrong. Ball position is very important if you want to aim correctly but before you can aim you need to know which eye is dominant. Try it out next time you are practicing.

If you want to improve your game, give us a call on 95173471 and make an appointment for a lesson with David.



Bags full!

Depending on what kind of golfer you are will determine how to choose your next golf bag. A lot will depend on how much equipment you need to have with you. Watch this video on how to organize your bag. If you like riding in a cart you will need a bag that is light and easy to handle with features such as a lined cooler, valuables pocket, 14-way divider and easy access to all pockets. If you drag or push a pull cart you may want a stand bag with top and bottom pockets, an easy lift handle, adjustable shoulder straps and either 14-way or 4-way full-length dividers. if you carry your bag you should consider a superlight version with 4-way full-length dividers, easy access pockets and a weight distributing shoulder strap. Whatever you are looking for, Golf Traders have got the bag for you. Come in and talk to one of our friendly staff who can assist with your decision. See what we have in store here.
