The Thiel College Dome is a great place to work on your golf game this winter. PGA Golf Professionals Dan McMillen and Bob Collins will be conducting Golf Swing Instruction Clinics throughout the winter at the Dome. The first Clinic of the season starts Saturday, December 21st.

Bob Collins with Pine Lakes Junior Golf Academy Class of 2013 and the winning team of the Junior Scramble Tournament.
“Get Golf Ready Class” at Pine Lakes Golf Club! After a short putting exhibition by PGA Professional Bob Collins, participants rotate around 8 different putting stations using teaching aids and devices to improve their stroke and alignment. Bob works individually with each student as they rotate to his station. This format is very much like the “Golf Instruction Putting Clinics” scheduled throughout the summer and conducted by Bob Collins.
The “Golf for Patriots” Outing will be a fun golf event for a great cause. Each Team must include at least one Senior or Lady Player. Get your team together now and we will send you an entry form to sign-up.
Bob Collins uses the famous Ben Hogan Pane of Glass to demonstrate the proper swing plane during a golf clinic at the Thiel College Dome. During the swing the club shaft and head should never strike the glass pane throughout the swing with the exception of the end of the follow through.
Practice Putting at Home
Somewhere in your house I bet you have flooring with square crossing lines. Ceramic tile is a good example, these lines are great for practicing your putting set up and stroke without a ball. You can use these lines to make sure your feet and shoulders are parallel with the target line at set up. The lines also make it easy to place the ball slightly forward in your stance and ensure the putter head is aiming correctly. In this photo using the “straight back – straight through” putting stroke it is very easy to see that the path of the putter head is moving straight back and through with a square face throughout the stroke.
Improve your high lob shot by practicing it in a pressure situation. If you decide to hit it over your car the best tip I can give you is make sure you roll down the windows. To hit the high lob shot the angle of descent cannot be too steep or too shallow. If too steep you may hit behind the shot and chunk it short of the green. If too shallow you may hit it too thin and blade it over the green.
Practice the high lob shot in your house. By using a foam golf ball you can’t hurt anything. I like to hit it over the sofa and try to land it on the coffee table. Proper indoor practice will have your game ready for spring. If you need help with your game in the off season contact me at 724-734-9533
