College of Golf April News

This month’s class is Short Game Fundamentals, and the first day’s lecture was followed by training and drills on the 1,500 square foot indoor putting green by Southwest Greens. Students were put through a Short Game Evaluation at the PGA CGLP, which consisted of Short Putts, Long Putts, Chipping, Pitching, and Bunker Play. Chris Dobbs scored highest with 89 points. Following will be the second day of Short Game Evaluation, and students will rely on their time on the practice green to improve on their first performance. The Motion Analysis Technology by Taylor Made System has been installed in the new College of Golf facility. Students will be able to have lessons by PGA Certified and Master Professionals on this system and lessons are scheduled weekly. We also hooked up the TOMI Computer Putting Analysis System today and will use this to provide detailed technical putting data to students on their initial aim point, face angle at impact, path of stroke, centeredness of contact, and tempo during their stroke. All three 65” Flat Panel TVs in the student lounge are hooked up and the HD is running so students were able to watch The Masters Tournament while practicing putting. All in all, a very exciting opening for the new College of Golf Keiser University Facility.
