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.

Sincerely,

Posture- An Important Fundamental

Getting Out Of The Sand


If you are struggling with your bunker game or just want to get better this video will help you get better and you will start having more confidence in the sand.

Here are the key points that I address:

1. The main technique that allows you to get out of the sand. For example; Wrist hinge, weight forward, thumping through the sand to the follow through, hitting the same spot every time)

2. Not Everyone needs to open their clubface. (An explanation of which technique is right for you and how to use that technique)

3. What is Bounce? How is it used? When should I use it? How much should I have on my wedge?

 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone enjoys the new year!

Please email drew@marclapointegolf.com if you have questions or call 919-449-4274 to schedule a lesson.

One of the most important aspects of putting is to make sure that the ball starts on your intended line. This skill is what separates the amateur from the tour pro. To start your ball on-line your clubface has to be square to the target. With these things in mind I recommend that you make sure your eyes are over the golf ball so that you can have a better perception of where your clubface is aiming. If the eyes are not over the golf ball things can become tricky due to the illusions a golfer sees when their eyes are inside or outside of the golf ball.

To illustrate these concepts I took some pictures of what the target line looks like to three different players.

This is a picture of two balls underneath the target line. In all of the following pictures this never changes. The first ball is the ball the player sets up to and the second ball represents where the ball starts (on the target line).

Here are the examples of what a golfer sees when their ball starts online to the target. Notice the difference in what the ball looks like in relation to the target line.

 

The clearest view to see the target line from is over the golf ball. Let me be clear though that I have taught all three of these types of players and all three players can be great putters. The point I want to make is that it will take you far less time to develop a repeatable stroke knowing that your clubface is square and that you are going to start the ball on the line you intended if you have your eyes over the golf ball.

To get better at this skill find yourself some string and two rods (pencils) and place them over your intended line towards the hole. Use this line to make sure the ball and putter look like the middle image above. If you do this you will know that the line on the back of your putter is square and your eyes are over the golf ball. Next stroke the ball down the intended line and practice getting your ball to start online just like the tour pros. I have no doubt that if you practice this your putting will improve and your scores will lower.

Cheers to better putting,

Drew

Grip- The #1 Fundamental in Golf


Take a look at the following video to see how to properly grip the golf club. Gripping the golf club properly will not only lower your scores but it will also feel incredible when you start striking the ball more squarely and in the sweet spot.

Climbing the Ladder to a Better Short Game.


One of the best ways to get better in your short game is to become more creative around the greens. There is never one “perfect shot” that you can play in every situation. For instance; When you want to hit a 20 yard shot to a back pin where you have plenty of green to work with it is best to play a low bump and run shot back in your stance. This provides less room for error with a shorter more repeatable backswing. However if the pin is in the front of the green with sand or rough to carry you must be able to hit the high pitch/lob shot to loft the ball into the air and land it softly next to the pin. Being able to hit multiple shots around the green with multiple trajectories will help you play the shot that best fits the situation.

A great way to practice imagery and creativity is to imagine hitting shots through different rungs of a ladder. In the picture of the ladder above there are 10 levels and 10 trajectories that you can possibly hit. Imagine the ladder about 10 ft. in front of you and attempt the following drill. The drill below has you hitting 10 different shots with 10 different ball positions. Using this drill will help you develop the skills necessary to hit the ball close to any pin in any situation.

Keep your Head Down! (or should you?)


Has any one seen this golfer before?

Top… Top… Top…. “Why can’t I keep my head down?” Chunk… Chunk… Chunk… “My head came up again.” Top…Top…Top… and so the devestating cycle continues. They have been told 1,000 times by their spouse, parents, or friends that they continue to raise their head, as well as take their eye off of the golf ball.  The golfer might get so upset that they can’t keep their head down, that they might even consider quitting.

If you have seen this golfer, please save them before it is too late! (That picture is over 100 years old.  It’s too late for him.)

Here is a great video I did with GolfGuruTv host Jason Sutton that shows the most probable cause to topping the ball, as well as how to fix it.

The head does not stay down. It pivots and follows the ball!

This allows the body to turn through the shot with a better chance of keeping the shaft leaning forward.

Stay tuned to the next post where I’ll go over the top three reasons golfers top the ball and how to fix them.

See you on the lesson tee,

Drew
