Ball Golf NEVER gets tired of happy golfers:
“Just wanted to shoot you an update on the clubs you fitted me for earlier this year. I haven’t hit my irons/hybrids this well or far since I was 20. I literally picked up 10-15 yards per club and my misses are never that bad (unless they’re just bad). And my index actually hit single digits this year for the first time.Hopefully I can arrange a lesson the next time I’m back up in Oklahoma.Thanks for all of your help! Love the e-mails, keep them coming.”O.G.B.
I have taken a few lessons at Ball Golf over the last three years. I wanted to let you know yesterday I shot a 76 my first ever around in the 70s. Thanks for your help! CB
“Thank you for the email and for a great fitting yesterday. Your tip about my grip was a revelation. I played 18 yesterday and really focused on keeping it in place through takeaway. By the latter part of the round I was getting the club face turned back square and hit some great shots. Looking forward to working on it more in practice, particularly with the new clubs.”
Thanks again, DE
HITTING THE BALL FIRST IS A GAME CHANGER!
For me to hit the ball first and make the divot after impact, what do I need to do?
- Weight must be 80/20 on target side (weight on left foot for righty, opposite for lefty)
- Shaft MUST be leaned forward at impact, NOT NEUTRAL.
MOST COMMON MISTAKES
- Players mistakenly think set up position and impact position are the same. They MOST certainly are NOT!
- Some players think divot is before impact or under the ball. NOT TRUE, the divot starts after the ball
- If the ball is laying on the ground, there needs to be a divot in front of the ball. Even fairway metals and hybrids. Wedge divots and fairway divots are not the same, the wedge divot is deeper, the fairway or hybrid is more shallow, but certainly AFTER the ball.
If you are a serial “FLIPPER” or “SCOOPER”, I strongly suggest beginning with short chip shots. YOU CAN do this, but it won’t happen over night, but I GUARANTEE it is well worth it.
One of the Southwest’s Most Decorated Teaching/Fitting Facilities
Ball Golf Center Fitting Philosophy
We believe in hitting balls outside (where we play), off real grass, hitting real balls, seeing the ENTIRE ball flight.
We believe in letting the product prove itself, in other words, we think you should come in with an open mind, hit shots and let the product prove it.
We believe in education and training and experience.
We believe in technology, but we also believe in feel…feel is the one thing we do not fit, that is up to the player.
We believe that less than 2% of golfers fit off the rack.

More than 44% of our shots in a round of golf come with the putter. Golfers don’t think anything about dropping $400 on a driver, and now most even know how important it is to get fit.
But when it comes to a new putter, couple practice strokes, eye it, possibly half a dozen putts on the practice green and “off the rack” and in the bag it goes.
