Gypsum Creek Golf Course – Tee It Up High

Gypsum Creek Golf Course – Tee It Up High

Gypsum Creek Golf Course – Golf is played in some of the most incredible settings in the world. Part of its allure is the sheer beauty of the experience. The time spent with friends in an outdoor wonderland is priceless. Gypsum Creek Nowhere is that more obvious than here in Colorado. We are blessed with some of the finest golf in the world right outside of our back door. Cool nights, warm, sunny days and majestic views in every direction make for a golf experience that is second to none. Our mountains provide a nearly perfect setting to play the game. The demands of everyday life keep most of us indoors, longing for time to breathe the mountain air while we stretch just a bit and try to touch the sky. Golf is the perfect escape. Although Mark Twain considered the game we love “A good walk spoiled”, he obviously never strolled the fairways of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Nowhere is the game more exhilarating than the Vail Valley...

Grand Lake Colorado – A Wonderful Escape

Grand Lake Colorado – A Wonderful Escape

Tucked up against the mountains at the Western entrance of Rocky Mountain National Park is a little town with big appeal, Grand Lake. I am always surprised by the amount of people who are unaware of Grand Lake and everything it has to offer. This town is located at the headwaters of the Colorado River and is situated on the shores of Grand Lake, Colorado’s deepest natural body of water. The shores of this lake are beautiful with soaring mountains serving as the back drop to the clear pristine water lapping at the lakes edges. The lake is home to the world’s highest registered yacht club and is the perfect location to kayak, SUP, canoe and even water ski. There is a wonderful little swimming beach reached by the town’s boardwalk for those who don’t mind the cool waters. In addition to Grand Lake there are two other bodies of water positioned very close to one another, Shadow Mountain Lake and Lake Granby. One of the biggest draws of...

Finding the Sweet Spot – EvoSwing Golf

Finding the Sweet Spot – EvoSwing Golf

One of the best experiences in golf is when the ball launches skyward off the “sweet spot” of the club face.  The sound and feel of a purely struck drive or crisply trapped iron can be the source of inspiration for many hours of practice on the range. As a teacher, it never ceases to amaze me how few of my new students actually know the correct location of the sweet spot on both the club and the ball!  So before we explore what our swing needs to do to produce pure contact, let’s make sure our picture of the optimum strike location on club and ball is correct! The ideal contact point on the irons (we will be looking at the woods next week) is the middle of groove 4 of the club face (see above). The sweet spot of the ball is back center of the ball (see below). In order to get the sweet spot of the club to match up with the sweet spot of the...

The founding principle of EvoSwing Golf is to make the game of golf and the learning process as simple and easy as possible.  Only three things directly influence the movement of the golf ball and it is crucial each golfer correctly understands these keys.  Golfers do NOT need to swing the same, but each individual swing must exhibit these fundamental movements of the club.

Evoswing Golf Lesson – Release Styles

Evoswing Golf Lesson – Release Styles

All players aspiring for maximum consistency and power should strive to time the release (squaring) of the clubface as late as possible in the downswing.  The later the rotation of the club back to square before impact, the more power you can deliver with less effort AND the more potential there is to minimize directional inconsistencies. However, as the following video shows there are a couple different styles of HOW to release the club face.  The “scoop” release that Dustin Johnson uses is very effective for those players whose club face tends to be a bit closed at the top of the backswing or who tend to hook the ball to the left.  The “trap” release of Stuart Appleby will work better for the vast majority of amateurs who want more distance from their shots and tend to miss to the right of the target directionally. The release is one of the most important timing marks in a quality golf swing.  Knowing when to release and what style works...
