Play Better Golf.
Why? Because everyone needs to relax and do something that they enjoy. Many jobs are stressful and many are not, but we simply need to get away from work occasionally to expand our horizons and maybe, just maybe, we can learn something new and have some fun in the process. The only reason that I am in the golf business today was simply my desire to learn more about the sport I loved. Unfortunately, back in the 1960’s it was impossible to obtain any information about the technical aspects of golf clubs. The only information I found was a small booklet about golf club repair written by Kenneth Smith.
The problem with the book was that it had very little information in it and was terribly outdated. This is not the case today. Anyone looking for technical information on golf clubs has numerous books, videos and articles to read over and has the potential to learn as much or more about golf clubs than many of the people who are currently in the golf business.
Building and repairing golf clubs is fun!
The GolfWorks clubmaking schools are another great way to get hands on experience and learn at your own pace. The people who attend our schools come from varied backgrounds. Many are school teachers, golf professionals, lawyers, doctors, dentists, construction workers or simply interested golfers.
However, they all have one thing in common, which is, they love golf and want to get more involved in it and understand more about their equipment. Building golf clubs, repairing golf clubs, fitting golf clubs or simply altering the specifications of golf clubs is exciting and that’s what makes it fun.
We all have to start somewhere when we take up a new hobby. To find out if this is really for you, simply take the first step and either build a golf club or regrip your set of clubs. Individual golf club kits and the regrip kits come with complete instructions. For the regripping crowd, a new “Learn All About Grips” video shows every aspect of understanding grips. It’s geared for beginner to expert and has all the latest tips and tricks of how your grips can help you play better. For the club assembly people, my new “Learn All About Wedges” video provides plenty of insight into what type of wedge you should build to help your game.
Roll up your sleeves and jump right in. It’s inexpensive, educational and very rewarding.
