A Passport golf clinic was recently conducted as appreciation for its current members. Presented by local Executive Director and Regional NGCOA Representative Tracy Conner, and conducted by Dale Ketola, Director of Instruction and Club Fitting at Grande Dunes Golf Performance Center, the Passport golf clinic was both informative and fun for the entire group.
Dale discussed pre-swing fundamentals with a full crowd of about 20 students; topics included where the clubface should be in the swing, proper grip, posture, balance, how golfers should learn a skill, make changes in a swing over time and how to practice with a purpose. There was a lot of information passed onto willing students!
Where the first part of the golf clinic focused on the basics, part two was dynamic, with students set-up at bays, hitting golf balls while Dale observed each and every golfer, helping them overcome their most obvious errors.
Everyone who attended learned something new about their golf swing and what is needed in order to improve their golf game.
After the golf clinic, the group met in the clubhouse for a question and answer session conducted by Dale as well as a cold drink.
Keep an eye out for our next golf clinic! Contact Dale Ketola directly for private lessons, group lessons and for club fitting assistance.
