I'm in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina today attending a PGA of America-Carolinas section business meeting so I thought we would let Doc Griffin have another go at today's daily since he did such a great job on the last blog posting.
I asked Doc to do this segment because Roy Jenkins' question has to do with how to properly determine the correct length of a driver (or any other club for that matter) and then what to do if you fnd that it is too long for you.
As you've heard me say many times before over the last few years the retail golf equipment makers have engaged in a marketing battle of who can make the biggest heads and longest shafts with the clear implication that bigger and longer is the best combination of driver head and shaft to give their customers more distance. As you'll learn in today's tip from Doc, nothing could be further from the truth!
I also want to say that Doc is getting geared up to take his show on the road again this year to places where we currently don't have a PPGS Certified instructor in the area. The first stop in 2013 will be to Toronto, Canada March 15, 16 and 17. Doc will only have 15 appointments in total so if you want to spend some time with a Top 100 International Master Club Fitter to get your clubs checked out then don't hesitate because his appointments always sell out within days of their announcement. If you want to know more CLICK HERE to go to Doc's information pages on this event.
In April, he'll be travelling with me to Allen, Texas where he will set up shop on the range while Dave Seeman and I hold a series of one-day long game schools. So, if any of you have signed up for one of these Performance Schools you may want to come in early or stay over a day to meet with Doc. Details on Doc's Texas trip will be forthcoming next week.
In May, Doc plans to travel to the United Kingdom for our first-ever trip there by a PPGS Certified Fitter. We're still looking for a place for him to set up shop, but it is likely to be near Northampton as that is the geographic center of the Surge Nation in the UK.
If you want information where our staff of teachers is going to be over the next few months, go to www.dontrahanacademyofgolf.com and click on School Schedule. We already have dozens of schools on the book with dozens more in the planning stages.
