Hope everyone is well and celebrating the first day of Spring!
Want to play better golf? There are many ways to improve your golf game. The first and most important way is to take a golf lesson. See what you need to work on. You may need to have a grip adjustment or maybe an alignment checkup, or you may be making some move in your golf swing that is affecting the path of the club to the ball. Whatever the reason, it is always good to have a PGA Professional look at your swing and tell you what you need to work on to lower your handicap and enjoy golf more.
After that lesson -- go practice! You should be going to the range to improve your muscle memory and reinforce what you learned at the lesson. A good item to have in your golf bag? -- alignment sticks. Almost every pro has one or two in their golf bags. They use them for checking their alignment, for putting mechanics and other drills. You can easily pick them up at any Home Depot or Lowes. Do not expect your game to improve just by playing on the golf need to practice what you learned from your golf lessons.
Daylight savings time gives you more lesson time


Now that the days are lasting longer, lessons can be booked as late as 6:30! Please contact me so we can fit you in after work, or if you are busy on the weekend, taking a golf lesson during the week fits better into your schedule.  

I can be reached at 941-350-1653.

Callaway Demo Day Once Again a "Big Hit"


Keith Martin from Callaway Golf brought out the works for our annual Callaway Demo Day. All Rogue products - from Drivers to Irons - were a big hit. And they hit big! Everyone loved the feel, look and especially the distance they were getting. We have Callaway here at SchiavettaGolf Academy. The best way to try them is to hit them outdoors and watch the ball fly! Make an appointment to try out the new Rogue line of clubs and get fit for your swing speed and proper loft.

                               Thank you Keith!

Rooney has been coming to SchiavettaGolf Academy more frequently. She wishes everyone to say hello to her and pet her please. :)

Quite a surprise during Demo Day when these cute little 'kids' just happened to wander by. They were checking out the Callaway products and wanting to know where Rooney was! I know for sure Rooney would have had fun with them!
