We believe that putting is the fastest, easiest path to improvement. When you participate in our Eyes on the Prize Putting Masterclass you will get the insight and the training needed to trust your stroke, your aim, your equipment and your routine. Which means you could stop three putting, and start making more of those pesky five footers. A lot more!
Instead of just trying to explain how to putt, GNL Golf lets you experience what a silky smooth stroke REALLY feels like, using our TPM technology. We’ll also use lasers and state-of-the-art measuring equipment to check your aim, the lie angle, loft and length of your putter to see if it’s right for you. It’s a hands-on experience like no other, all performed inside a facility designed for accelerated learning.
“Perfect Impact” Golf Lessons for more distance and accuracy
The laws of physics dictate that faster BALL SPEED is the single biggest contributor to distance. One mph of extra ball speed equals three extra yards of distance.
But where does ball speed come from? It comes from two things: clubhead speed and sweet spot impact.
The average golfer’s just not going to generate 110 mph of clubhead speed. Especially no one here in The Villages. So the ONLY way to gain more distance is to hit the sweet spot consistently. That’s the only other option.
We’ll show you how. In just one session we help you maximize distance with the swing and the clubs you already have. These are the only golf lessons in The Villages that cover the on thing that’s easy to fix… your equipment.
I believe, wholeheartedly, that Golf Clubs Create Golf Swings.
I learned that early in my career when I was working with the big name pros who played McGregor clubs. They all had the skill to compensate for anything that we put in their hands.
It was amazing to see… I once handed Tom Weiskopf a club that was 6 degrees upright and dead shut, just to mess with him. He took one look at it, changed his setup a little, and started hitting it dead straight, just like every other club in his bag.
Those guys were so good they could adapt to anything. But they knew better!
They always wanted it their way… Whether it was Weiskopf, Nicklaus, Moe Norman, Sam Snead, or Arnold Palmer… They all insisted that we build clubs to fit them, so they would never have to change their swing to fit the club.
Why should you try something that even the best tour pros are not willing to do?
Let’s face it… You’re not that good. The average bogey golfer cannot compensate successfully, or consistently, for golf clubs that are ill suited to his golf swing.
And yet, thousands of golf lessons in The Villages are wasted every year trying to teach people to do exactly that.
No PGA certified golf instructors in The Villages take equipment into consideration. In fact, they’re told NOT to. “Leave that to the clubfitters or the sales guys,” they’re told.
So instead of making a simple adjustment to a guy’s clubs, they’ll try to get him to change his grip, his swing plane, his set up, his “angle of attack” and a hundred other things.
To me, that’s just dumb.
Changing the golf club is a lot easier than tearing apart a golf swing and rebuilding it piece by piece.
When I give golf lessons the first thing I do is I look at your equipment. It’s the opposite approach of PGA instructors.
I address the equipment issues first, get that out of the way, THEN I teach you now to turn accidental magic into a repeatable process. It’s not that hard.
Everyone hits it on the sweet spot 4 or 5 times a round. You know the feeling… when the ball sails magically right toward the target.
With a few simple equipment tweaks and a little work on your posture, I’ll have you hitting it dead solid 20 or 30 times per round. It’s the only golf lesson in The Villages that achieves so much, so fast.
Unbiased, Scientific Club Testing:
You may not need new clubs.
We believe that every club in the bag should perform consistently like all the other clubs in the bag. Chances are that’s not the case.
You probably have at least two clubs that you just can’t hit. So we offer Scientific Club Testing Services on shaft flex consistency, accuracy angles and 4 other critical factors. Because golf is hard enough without whacky variations in your clubs.
We’ll test all your clubs… every shaft, every grip, and every measurable data point with you standing right beside us looking at the results. Then you will swing your clubs and test the accuracy angles. You’ll instantly know if your clubs are helping or hurting your game.
Hand-crafted irons, woods, hybrids and putters
Save thousands of dollars on your next set of clubs, and get the most thorough fitting in the industry.
We believe a true professional club fitter should always start with the customer’s current set as a baseline. That’s the ONLY way we can ensure improvement, and that’s how our business works.
If the results from our club testing show that you do need new clubs, then we can help with our own, patented line of custom-made, custom fitted irons, woods, hybrids and putters. These clubs are designed, engineered and assembled by hand, by John S. Ford.
Ford is a craftsman at heart… A master clubmaker who has built golf clubs for some of the greatest names in the game, including Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer. His 40 years of experience and his technical skills in the art of clubmaking are unsurpassed. Before you spend another dime on golf clubs, go see him. One thing John learned while building clubs for tour pros is that each player had his own, authentic swing. And the clubs were crafted to match.
Every club will be custom made for your Authentic Swing. Plus, since no clubs come with a user’s manual, we spend two hours teaching you how to use them.
Club Prices: Costs vary depending on the set make-up. Rest assured, when we write you a quote and it will be less than what you’d spend for the big name brands.
Golf Club Repair in The Villages
We believe you shouldn’t have to spend $500 for a fancy new driver if all you need is a slight adjustment to the driver you already have. So whenever possible, we’ll fix your clubs.
Consistent, properly sized grips are more important than you might think. If you’re losing grip on the club, you’ll never make good, solid contact.
Shaft flex consistency in your irons: If you have just one lemon in your bag, we’ll fix it so it performs like the rest of your set.
Would you like to try a new shaft in your driver? For one-fith the cost of a new driver, we can make your driver new again.
Have one or two clubs that you just can’t hit? We can fix them and get you back in the game without spending a fortune for a whole new set.
