iGrow Golf Operation 36! Our New Junior Program!


Page-001
Eventbrite - Junior Golf Parent Orientation

Families,

Starting this year we will be launching the Marc Lapointe Junior Golf Academy. The academy is structured using the Operation 36 Junior Development Framework.  The framework is used by facilities across the nation and consists of parents, coaches, and juniors all working towards the goal of shooting par or better for 9 holes!  Each junior that enrolls in the academy will be issued an Op 36 Bag Tag and profile in our Op 36 Academy Mobile App.   

The Op 36 Platform consists of 6 levels, and has a 12 subject curriculum that our coaches will deliver throughout the academy semesters. When the junior can demonstrate objectives to coaches they will earn badges on their bag tag, and will be able to track and log the progress in the mobile app.  Each achievement is tracked in a social activity feed and points are earned for completing objectives, and playing/practicing outside of class.  To graduate from the Academy the juniors must progress through all 6 levels and ultimately shoot par or better for 9 holes from their full tee box based on age!

Please join us for a Parent Orientation on March 3rd to go over more details, and answer any questions you or your junior may have. We will begin registration on March 3rd. Spots will be limited to 6 juniors per class. Those attending the Parent Orientation will have first priority for registration. Once we reach 6 students in each class we will begin a wait list.

New Home For Andrew Kiger Golf


 

When I started teaching golf eleven years ago, I had a dream to become a top 100 golf instructor. It has been an incredible journey so far and I appreciate everyone who has supported Andrew Kiger Golf along the way. It brings me great pleasure to announce the next step in my career. I have been hired to be the Lead Instructor at Marc Lapointe Golf. It will be my job to run and operate top notch PGA Teaching programs at Fort Mill Golf Club, Springfield Golf Club, Chester Golf Club, and Lancaster Golf Club.

I am incredibly excited about this opportunity and I know I can deliver on all your golf instruction needs. The Marc Lapointe Golf facility at Fort Mill Golf Club houses state of the art teaching technology such as FlightScope X2 Elite, high speed video equipment, Tomi 3D Putting analysis, and three huge high def TVs to display club data and video analysis. The facility also has two indoor bays so that instruction is always a possibility, no matter the weather.

I have also embarked on a mission to help juniors become great golfers through the Operation 36 platform. It will help every junior golfer to one day shoot par, or better, and have a lot of fun doing so. You’re going to love it!

Be on the lookout for things to come. This year, we are going to get better at this game, your scores are going to lower, and we are going to have a lot more fun!

New To Golf- A Beginners Guide To The Golf Swing

The High Launch Low Spin Bomb


Here is an article I recently wrote for the Carolina Golf Journal. It explains how you can hit your drives farther and straighter than you ever have.

The High Launch Low Spin Bomb-

The key to long high bomb drives is hitting up on the ball. The LPGA hits up 3 degrees on the ball and the Remax Long Drive Champions all hit up on the ball upwards of 5 degrees. Bubba Watson has been measured to have an attack of 9 degrees upward. The average I see from amateurs is 3 degrees down. When you hit down on the ball you lower the launch angle and increase the spin rate causing your ball to balloon into the air sapping out precious distance. If you could take your normal swing speed and apply an upward angle of attack you could easily add 40-50 yards of total distance. Below I have included 4 steps to hitting up on the ball with your driver that will have you bombing it past your playing competitors every time.

Step 1- Ball Forward- Make sure the ball is placed on the shoelaces of the front foot to insure the ball is forward enough to hit upward on the ball.

Step 2- Tilt Away-  Bump your target side hip closer to the target as you tilt your spine away and behind the ball. With your lower body forward and your upper body slightly back you are in a balanced position to hit up on the ball. Your weight should still be equally distributed.

Step 3- Low and Wide Takeaway- Set up the upward attack for the downswing by taking the club back as low and wide as possible. To keep the width in the back-swing try to keep your arms straighter. This will make the arc of the swing the widest possible.

Step 4- Raise the Handle Through Impact- Using your body as a thrusting catapult push your hips (or Belt) as far forward and up as you can as your head stays back behind the ball. This will help you raise the grip end of the club enough to hit up on the ball. To add some draw to the shot raise the handle more up and to the right. This will help the club swing in to out more producing more right to left spin for even more distance!

Justin Rose- 3D Radar Technology


Justin Rose’s swing is one of the most beautiful golf swings on the tour. Sean Foley, Rose’s swing coach has done an amazing job helping him build a more repeatable and reliable motion. They often use slow motion video as well as trackman (3d radar launch monitor) to make sure Justin gets precision feedback during his practice. His putting coach, David Orr, also uses the Sam Putt Lab to help Justin with his stroke. When I was a student at Campbell University I would spend every  hour I could watching David teach and learned so much about the proper technique. The Sam Putt Lab allows Justin and David to have instant feedback on the stroke so that changes can be made and the putting stroke can be more consistent.

Here are some takeaways from Justin’s swing that you should try to copy in your own swing.

1. Centered Pivot backswing.

2. Lower body shifts aggressively to the target in the downswing and through to the finish.

3. Hands ahead at impact.

4. D-plane Control (Justin maintains great angles throughout the swing and has the ability to hit all the shots because of his understanding of clubface and path.)

You can use the same radar technology the pros are using! I use Flightscope 3D Radar technology and high speed video to give my players accurate and reliable feedback on what the club is doing through impact.

I look forward to seeing everyone on the lesson tee soon.
