SOUTH AFRICA – The Annual Drive, Chip and Putt Championship is back again for the fourth year, boys and girls from all 50 states, ages 7-15, will participate in local qualifying from May to August. The Drive, Chip and Putt Championship is a joint initiative to grow the game of golf, founded by the Masters Tournament, USGA and PGA of America. Top performers at the local level have the opportunity to advance through the competition and possibly earn an invitation to the National Finals at Augusta National Golf Club the following April.
This year 40 boys and 40 girls will compete in the 2016 National Finals at Augusta April 3, the eve of this year’s Masters. If your beginner or junior golfer is preparing to take part in next year’s competition, or pursuing a dream of becoming a successful golfer, or wants to learn to play golf, SwingClick PLUS can help.
While technique is important in learning the game, all too often, beginners and amateurs get overwhelmed with all the science and instructional tips focused on how to swing a club “perfectly.” As a result, more people are walking away from the game because the learning process seems too long and too complicated. Golfers, especially beginners and juniors, want to experience the joy of success by hitting the ball in the air, getting it on the fairway, and having fun in the process.
The SwingClick PLUS is the answer to help beginners learn how to play the game in reduced timeframes. Once golfers get the basic fundamentals in place: grip, alignment, stance and posture – the key to a good, consistent golf swing is timing and rhythm. The SwingClick PLUS provides beginners and all golfers this important frame of reference. The lightweight training device straps to the golfers forearm and clicks at three key points of the swing: at the top of the backswing, at impact and follow-through.
“Most beginners don’t know where the top of their backswing is,” said Mike Quinn, Managing Director of SwingClick, former Sunshine Tour player and teaching professional. “The SwingClick PLUS provides students the ability to hear and more importantly, FEEL the point of transition, and develop the muscle memory to turn in the same position at the top every time with consistency. If beginners and juniors learn to get their rhythm and tempo right, they will learn to play the game within six months instead of three years. Events like the Drive, Chip and Putt Championship helps build kids’ confidence and develop their love of the game … so more rounds will be played and everybody wins. ”
The new SwingClick PLUS has a sleeker design that complements the natural flow of the swing. The strap is more adjustable, making it one-size-fits all, and is available in four different colors – blue, red, orange and purple. SwingClick PLUS is the only transition-training device that allows you to use your own clubs. It’s not clunky or embarrassing to use on the range and golfers can use it in real-time taking their practice directly from the range to the course.
“The SwingClick PLUS offers instructors the opportunity to teach their students technique while they are swinging at a consistent tempo,” added Quinn. “Not only will this make beginners improve quicker, but you will look like a better coach. Let’s be part of the solution of growing the game.”
The new SwingClick PLUS is $39.99 and is available on Amazon.com and swingclickgolf.com. The original SwingClick is $29.99. Golf academies, summer camps and instructors quality for quantity discounts! For more information and video tips, visit swingclickgolf.com.WHAT'S YOUR REACTION?
