Start to Finish Golf Academy at the Grand Palms Resort

Pembroke Pines FL


The Start is the setup, it is amazing how much easier it is to perform a desired shot when you have the correct grip, posture, alignment and ball position. When you look at the best golfers in the world, recognize that they start with proper fundamentals of the setup. Impact is the most important position of the golf swing. Everyone has a different swing that is best for their body type. If you can Start properly and Finish in balance for each and every shot then you are simplifying the whole process which leads to consistency. The Finish position of each shot is critical to achieve desired results. When you finish your shot in balance, then you are in control at the moment of truth . . . Impact.
