GOLF TIPS

The Can't-Miss Putting Grip

asdBy Brad Brewer,
Golf Academy President


The problem:
You struggle with rolling the ball on target. The reason could be that you grip the handle in your fingers like you do with your irons and woods. This allows your wrists to hinge, which is good for full swings but bad for putting.

ORLANDO AREA MAINTENANCE SCHEDULES

Just when greens are at their best the aerification or overseeding process begins. A necessary evil to maintain healthy putting surfaces, the average healing time for aerification is about 14-21 days, some courses heal faster than others depending on the type of grass involved. Most courses will aerify 2-3 times between late April/early May  then again in the late summer.

Overseeding may or may not include the greens depending on the type of grass used. Look for wet conditions and cart path only for 10-20 days. Greens can also be slower as the seed takes hold. These dates are always subject to change based on weather conditions. We will update this chart as changes occur to keep you informed.
