5 Questions and Answers about College Golf Camps of America.

1. Are all these colleges going to be there? I mean really?
Yes, REALLY, the NCAA guidelines allow for coaches to work camps. So, over the past 5 years, we have contracted over 200 major college coaches within the NCAA guidelines…no different than coaches running their own camps, CGC is the buffet of College Golf Coaches at one camp….make sense?

2. Why do you only have BIG D-1 schools when I will probably play at a lower level?

This is a simple but unique answer. No one realizes the networking that goes on behind college coaching unless your a coach. For example, we have been told that if we have 18 major college coaches in attendance, you might as well have 50 lower level coaches in their pockets. Here is why….the coach at a “big-time” college may see a camper who can’t play for them, but could play for a “friend of his/her” at a smaller college…hence the vast network of coaching and the coaching fraternity. Now, we are not saying we will have 50 coaches in attendance, but we are trying to explain the relationships within college coaching and how they help each other out……

3. How will the coaches see me play?
Great question, coaches in attendance will be roaming the camp all day, from the range to the golf course. We will assign each coach a cart and 3-4 holes to per day. Those coaches will watch players come through their assigned holes each day. They will be assigned 3-4 holes on the first day and then 3-4 different holes the next. Having 18 coaches in attendance, every hole will have an overlap of coaches…..hence forcing them to watch campers come through so they can coach, evaluate, instruct, etc…..pretty cool huh?

4. Do my parents need to attend?
Absolutely, it is the opinion of the CGC that the parents could get as much or more information from the camp as their son or daughter. Parents can do everything but play. They can rent a cart and follow their son/daughter. They need to attend the clinics. The clinics are full of big-time information from college coaches. These clinics are geared to educate the campers and the parents!!

5. Am I good enough? Is my handicap too high?
This is a great question, but you and your parents are the only ones to answer it. We are open to all players of all skill-sets. This camp is geared for players who want to play college golf, period. Who are we to label a player and say they good enough? Don’t ever allow someone to label you. We believe in the process to gain results. Ultimately we can only control our attitude and our effort!! So don’t allow anyone to label who you are or who you will become!!

Spend 5 minutes a day to create more lag, more release thus more distance for junior golfers

Here is one of our favorite golfers of all time, Stan Utley.  Mr. Utley and his son attended one of our junior golf exposure camps in Dallas.  We talked about many many aspects of junior golf.  One topic of discussion was “how do we get junior golfers to release the golf club?”.  Further discussion brought us to the Orange Whip.  Mr. Utley firmly believes the Orange Whip naturally creates lag in the golf swing.  Thus creating a release of the golf club.  Listen to this great video with Mr. Utley.

“I use the Orange Whip to make sure my swing is how I want it” – William McGirt, PGA Tour Winner

Designed exclusively for juniors, the lighter weight and shorter length of the Orange Whip Junior, allows junior golfers to feel if they are maximizing their swing tempo and balance.

Three key components that make up the patented design of the Orange Whip Junior; a weighted orange ball, a counterweight, and a very flexible shaft.

The orange ball replaces the clubhead and allows you to focus on swinging naturally without worrying about the position of the club face. It’s weighted to promote a fluid swinging motion rather than a jerky hitting motion.

The counterweight balances the Orange Whip Compact, stabilizing your swing from the start through the finish. It’s essential in providing critical feedback on whether you are loading and unloading the golf club properly.

Our proprietary shaft naturally promotes the need to swing in rhythm creating synchronization between your arms, upper body, and lower body. The result is a perfect tempo and balanced swing creating more consistent and powerful shot-making on the course.

Feedback from the Orange Whip Mid-Size is instant and any wobble in the swing indicates a need to improve tempo and balance. Swinging it, you will naturally find the tour like motion needed to be a better golfer.

Benefits of Using the Orange Whip

One of the best and often overlooked features of the Orange Whip is the ability to use it indoors without compromising its unparalleled performance. It only requires a minimal amount of space and 5-10 minutes of training time per day. No golf swing trainer is more time efficient and effective. You can work with an Orange Whip year-round and never again have to depend on weather conditions or daylight when you want to improve your golf swing and fitness. It’s the ideal tool for those living in challenging winter environments and busy individuals with little time to practice.

The Foundation Drills are the core group of training exercises designed to maximize the effect of the Orange Whip. These can be performed in a single daily workout. To increase benefits to fitness and flexibility, 2 or more sets per day are recommended. In general, only 5 to 10 min every day is required to notice some results. This minimal time requirement makes it easy for almost anyone to incorporate these drills into their schedule.

When used regularly, the golfer will quickly see noticeable improvements in their golf swing such as, increased flexibility and strength, enhanced coordination, and a perfectly balanced tempo.

Flexibility
The weight on each end of the flexible shaft provides a low-impact stretch while swinging.

Strength
The Orange Whip provides a core muscle workout when used during repetitive motion drills. The wrists and forearms receive a workout doing various drills and during the hinging action while swinging.

Coordination
The Orange Whip synchronizes the arms and body while swinging it repetitively. If this motion is out of sync, the user will lose their balance and/or feel awkward.

Tempo
As the arms and body work together, a natural rhythm takes over the swing. This is how your tempo develops, some may be fast or slow, yet always in balance with an efficient motion.

With an Orange Whip, anyone can make the most out of the winter months and improve without hitting golf balls. If a golfer trains their swing without using a ball, the mind and body will allow the swing to develop naturally. The Orange Whip can eliminate the ‘hit’ instinct from your mind and consistency can be developed.

In addition, once a person athletically learns how to swing the Orange Whip, I encourage the user to try and feel where the Orange ball would release off the end of the shaft. This is a great mental exercise for those who want to improve the accuracy of their golf shots.

CAUTION:
When using the Orange Whip indoors, make sure there is sufficient space to swing freely in all directions. A garage or spaces with vaulted ceilings are ideal. Be sure to eliminate all obstacles and restrictions prior to swinging. Pay special attention to doors and entrance areas. Do not swing the whip near these areas and take the necessary precautions to avoid contact with unsuspecting persons entering a space near the path of the Whip.

Junior Golfers yardage books, Why? DIY yardage

Junior Golfers Yardage

College Golf Coaches are constantly seeking information about junior golfers and yardage books.  Coaches ask themselves often, “is this junior golfer organized? does he/she have a game plan?”  

All competitive golfers are looking for any advantage to maximize their scoring potential during tournament play as long as it’s within the rules of the game.  You can do this yourself.  That’s right, you can create a game plan with a DIY yardage book.  

After several years as a parent of a junior golfer, Michael Carter and his daughter Larissa created a do-it-yourself yardage book company called Go To Caddie. Since it’s inauguration in 2015, Go To Caddie yardage books are being used by professional and junior golfers around the world. In addition, their My Caddie Pro yardage book has been incorporated into top college golf programs throughout the country.

A yardage book is an essential tool that all professional golfers and caddies use when taking notes prior and often during practice rounds before a tournament. In the past, both player and caddie would spend hours familiarizing themselves with the course design. Now with new internet technology, they can design their yardage books from home allowing them to have accurate measurements throughout the course prior to even stepping on the first tee box.  DO IT YOURSELF with Go To Caddie Excellent stocking stuffer for Christmas!!

Yardage books can help eliminate costly mistakes and erase any doubt from a player and caddie’s mind by servicing them both with their own accurate information and game plan. This gives a mental edge to a player by having confidence over every shot. These notes can provide accurate yardages for distances from the tee box to hazards and landing areas in and around fairways and on the green.

A properly filled out yardage book also provides detailed sketches and measurements of the greens giving the player knowledge of landing areas where the pin is located. Players can then confidently assess their plan of attack or defense for each approach shot during a round.  DO IT YOURSELF with Go To Caddie
