LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

H

oly cow! What a season we just had. It was one of the busiest seasons in years. It finally looks like the upturn is here and we are all excited to see that happen. Course owners, golf management companies, general managers and pros all generally agree that this past season was one of the best in the past four or five years. Mike Calbot, the world famous “Golf Doctor,” told us that his lessons and swing analysis programs out at Old Corkscrew were running in high gear. It now looks like it will be even better for the coming season. Along with the increase in golf rounds and increase in new memberships at many of our 200-plus courses down here, we found many locations had more great news for new and second home clients and for realtors and builders alike. The market is starting to correct as I write this tome, and many realtors such as Phillip Rigsby and others in this market are starting to plan for the coming year when things should really kick in. We heard last week that another great community, Heritage Bay, was turned over by Lennar Homes to the members. Heritage Bay is now a fully bundled community with 27 golferfriendly holes and beautiful view throughout the entire location. In other golf news, Mike Dopsloff, former GM at Arrowhead, is in the process of creating a brand new amateur tournament program down our way. Doug Burnham, former GM at Spanish Wells, and now a member of the Choice Team at Prudential Florida Realty, is in the process of putting together a super golf travel group called Tee Up Travel. Down at Greenlinks at Lely, there is a shiny new restaurant appropriately called Sam Snead’s. If you go there at lunch time, be sure to say hello to Dan Sullivan, Director of Sales and Marketing for Greenlinks. Upcoming events are starting to fill the calendar here for the fall and winter months. The CME Ladies event and the Champions Tour Ace Group Classic will be held out at Twin Eagles. And it looks like the Shark Shootout will be on tap at Tiburon again this year. As always, we will be out supporting all of these top professional tournaments in our area. Please watch for the Fall/Winter Golfer’s Guide Edition for more news and information about the upcoming events. Last but not least, if you are looking for a round of golf at a great price in this area, be sure to visit www.teetimesavings. com. Super deals and courses can be found there every day. Till the next issue – Play Well. Ron Perrott, Regional Representative 6

We have seen several of changes in Southwest Florida over the past decade, but people still applaud at sunset while dining at The Turtle Club and it’s still the most beautiful place to be a part of. We have seen a dramatic rejuvenation in our real estate market over the past year and it is looking better every day. With independent economists predicting a 10 percent increase in home values in Naples over the next year, it’s time to get serious about that home that you’ve been eyeing.

Howard Krass, also with Lennar, says to me, “I would urge any golfer that is considering a new home in Naples to come and experience the outstanding quality and service that can only be found at TwinEagles Golf and Country Club.” The top U.S. golf destination and the best little corner of the world, can now be called home.

ecently a candidate for Golf Magazine’s best new course, this Troon Golf-managed layout welcomes you to the heart of Southwest Florida and the brand new hometown of Ave Maria, less than 30 miles from Naples and the beaches of Collier County. Renowned Florida designer Gordon Lewis calls this layout “one of the top three I’ve created.” He was allowed to put his stamp on the property before any of the homes, giving the course very deep set-backs that allow for generous fairways and huge lakes. Strategic bunkering and large, softly undulating greens act as the course’s defense, but six sets of tees give players of all abilities the opportunity for a fun-filled round through a natural setting as they challenge holes named “Cordgrass Corridor,” “The Outer Banks” and “Gordy’s Folly.” Committed to preserving the area’s significant environmental resources and its rural and agricultural heritage, and inspired by the eternal charm of Italy’s hill towns, this visionary community built around its own university has everything for creating an exciting and unique lifestyle, beginning, of course, with a fabulous round of golf. 2012 ISSUE 2

O

ld Corkscrew Golf Club, a Jack Nicklaus Signature Design is Southwest Florida’s No. 1 Rated Golf Course. The coveted awards associated with this property include: “Best Course Near You” and “Best Course That You Have Never Heard Of”, Golf Magazine, “Florida Golf Course of the Year – 2008”, and “One of America’s Best New Courses – 2007”, Golf Digest. The par-72 championship layout which opened in 2007 meets the highest design criteria and offers a great golf experience to daily fee and members alike. Since OCGC is not part of any real estate development, this course is a “core” or “stand-alone” extraordinary golf experience. The course design has been developed to mesh precisely with the outstanding natural assets – mature oak, pine and cypress trees and a natural flow way through the center of the property, adding up to one spectacular golf course. From the black tees, the course is rated as one of most challenging in Florida. Annually, the venue plays hosts to FSGA and USGA events, and for the past two years – 2011 and 2012 – is the host qualifying site for the ACE Group Championship, PGA Champions Tour. To any golf enthusiast, the course is truly considered a must play destination. The membership programs at this coveted award-winning venue are designed to meet the needs of today’s golfer. Members at Old Corkscrew Golf Club pay no monthly dues, no minimum monthly food spending and have no year-end assessment. Quite simply, members are 100 precent of their golf budget.

Learn to Hit the Shot Bubba Hit! By Tal Buchanan, PGA Professional at Heritage Bay Golf Course

T

David W. Leindecker / Shutterstock.com

he amazing shot that Bubba Watson hit on the second playoff hole ( No. 10) at this year’s Masters (huge hook with a wedge from the right hand trees) was a combination of talent, knowledge and practice. Although Bubba indicates that he has never taken a lesson, I guarantee that he is a great watcher and listener. He watched other players shape shots, listened to how they did it and then practiced what he learned. To hit a shot like Bubba did requires some basic ingredients.

2012 ISSUE 2

015.Buchanan Lesson.indd 15

First, talent never hurts. The players on the PGA Tour have hand-eye coordination that rivals the top athletes in all other sports. Second, to hit a shot with lots of shape, you must know the ball-flight laws. 1) To hook a ball the clubface has to be closed to the path of the club; 2) To slice a ball, the clubface has to be open to the path of the club; 3) You have to practice hitting shots that deviate from the norm. In other words, in your practice sessions you should have some fun and experiment with hitting balls that turn left, balls that turn right, low balls and high balls. Don’t fall into the habit of just trying to hit straight shots on the practice tee. Put some purpose into your practice by moving the ball one way or another. Enough practice and you will be able to amaze yourself on the course – just like Bubba amazed millions of us watching him win the 2012 Masters with a miraculous shot preceded by plenty of practice!.

How low can you go?

Improve your game with a punch shot.

F

By Scott Newhouse, PGA Professional at The TwinEagles Club

rom a sand wedge 60 yards away to a 4-iron recovery shot through the trees back into play, the punch shot is a shot that takes practice. Let’s talk about the recovery shot first. One thing that I have learned by watching the 15 to 30 handicappers is that when you are in trouble, the first rule is to get out of trouble. So grab your 4- or 5-iron and head to the practice facility. As we know, the most important part of hitting a punch shot is to catch the ball first. By putting the ball one ball right of the center of your stance, we can hit down on the ball, keeping it low and ensuring that we do not catch any thick grass, twigs, pine straw or sand before we strike the ball. If you are able to put and keep some extra weight at address on the left leg, that would be even better. Hands forward? Sure, just make sure the weight stays on the left and the hands stay in front of the club head. Let’s try not to get “scoopy.” I know it is natural to try to lift the ball, but as Jim McLean says, “it’s a death move!” So make sure your hands are forward, your weight forward and the ball is one ball right of center. Now, as I teach in all of my fullswing lessons, the shoulder rotation takes care of the rest. After the setup has been accomplished, your rotation away should allow the golf club to be picked up abruptly without setting your hands. Just turn back and through and the club 2012 ISSUE 2

025.ScottNewhouse.indd 25

will return to the ball with a downward blow. Remember; try not to help by scooping. If you do, you will have the same shot just 10 feet from where you just tried the last one. Okay, punch wedges. Try using this method with a sand or pitching wedge. Let’s try it with a sand wedge first. To recap, we will be trying this from any yardage you want. Let’s begin with 70 yards. Okay, same setup as the 4-iron recovery shot -- weight forward, hands forward and ball one ball right of center. Take a ¾ swing with very little hand action. If successful, notice how the ball takes two hops and then stops. If this happens, you have accomplished something very special. With the same move, you can move this ball position to the center and have the ball fly slightly shorter and higher with one hop and a stop. Move it two balls back of center and have the ball hop twice and release slightly. Remember, if you are helping the ball with a little “early release” success may not be immediate. Okay, now let’s talk about what shot to hit when. Well, maybe we will save that for our lesson!

alance is the key to success in a golf swing. Most golfers stand out of balance when at address. When they go to make a golf swing, their body fights the action and end up looking stiff or rigid. When you are stiff or rigid, you can’t build up the speed for distance or control for consistency. There is also an early fatigue, and even in some cases, injuries may occur. Making a golfer feel balance is not that difficult. See the illustration of the golfer in the photo, standing on two air discs at address, making a backswing and still keeping his balance. You know you’re out of balance when you can’t hold your finish to the count of three. You know you’re out of balance

when you take a step immediately Mike after Calbot your golf swing impact position. You know Director of instruction you’re out of balance when after you hit the ball, you’re walking backwards. Here is a quick way to feel balance. Get two big bath towels. Fold each over one of time so you can stand on the towels individually, one under each foot. It is recommended that the towels be about 4 inches in fitness from the flLocated oor to your at foot so you will feel anyOld in-balance motion. Corkscrew Golf Club Florida Place the towels downEstero, about the width of your stance. Now stand on the towels and take a golf set up position. Feel your address position. Let your weight rock you to the front of your feet, then to the back of your feet. Rock too much to the left and too much to the right until you find your center mass balance. From this point, make a backswing and count to three. See if you can maintain a full backswing in balance. It is advised not to swing forward while standing on the towels without guidance of your coach or instructor. Being able to learn to feel your balance at address and the top of the backswing should increase your awareness of your balance and balance points, therefore improving your timing and tempo, improving distance and accuracy. Good luck and have fun playing better golf with the golf doctor. The Mike Calbot International Golf Studio &Schools are located at Old Corkscrew Golf Club in Estero, Fla.
