Find your balance.

Most amateurs feel that as soon they have hit the ball, what happens next with their swing is mostly irrelevant. However, a nice, balanced follow through in your swing isn’t just for show, it actually has a very important role. Standing tall with most of your weight on your left side up on your right toe, facing the target will help to link the start and finish positions together so that your body can train itself to repeat that same move every time. If you start with a stable setup and finish with a balanced follow through you are pretty much guaranteed to pass through the correct impact position every time. Check out a great drill here.

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

ZX-Irons

 

ZX irons from Srixon

ZX4 are hollow irons that offer a sleek, narrow look along with the forgiveness you’d typically only expect from larger designs. These irons deliver an exceptionally good address profile while also boasting Srixon's most powerful forgiveness to date.

ZX5 combines pioneering ball speed technology with premium forged feel and delivers all of it in a forgiving yet workable chassis that’s razor sharp at address. If you’re after irons with forgiveness, control, soft forged feel and explosive distance, then this is your ultimate set.

ZX7 is a player's iron that looks and feels like a blade while offering more speed and total control. A compact blade shape, narrow topline, single-piece forging, and narrow sole provide the workability, feel, and world class aesthetics.
