Upper body modifications for power

Upper_Body_PowerThe upper body generates the highest rates of speed in the golf swing. Therefore, any modifications that we can perform here will pay off big time in the long run.  However, these modifications to greatly increase clubhead speed also come with a greater risk of reducing accuracy.  But right now we are just trying to increase speed and power.  Once you do that then you learn how to control it.  If you go back and read last week’s article on lower body modifications and thought those tips were completely different from what most teaching professionals are instructing, you are really going to think the upper body modifications are wild.  But this is also why most of your longest hitters don’t have a “typical” looking swing.

HELP THE MIAMI VALLEY CHAPTER OF THE FIRST TEE 
Bourbon_RaffleThe Miami Valley First Tee Chapter is attempting to continue operations throughout the summer, autumn and winter without the aid of necessary revenue coming from June & July lesson programs. This hardship coupled with the closing of City of Dayton golf facilities has prompted our fund raising team to find new means of funding sponsorships. The Bourbon Raffle is our latest Post Covid-19 effort to save our 2020 programs.

Please link in to the raffle website and help their efforts. 
A NOTE ON OUR YOUTH ON COURSE PROGRAM 
YOC_Banner

One of our core beliefs at Miami Valley Golf is believing that every child deserves access to the life changing opportunities that our game can provide regardless of socioeconomic status.  

With that in mind, in 2018, we teamed up with Youth on Course to bring this national program to our Miami Valley area.  

Youth on Course members can play at participating courses for $5 or less during allotted times, after paying a small membership fee which is also $5. 

Our foundation (Miami Valley Golf Foundation) supports this program locally by supplementing the difference in green fees to the participating facility.  

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic we will need additional assistance as some of our opportunity for fund raising will not be available.  If possible, we encourage you to support this program.  

An easy online contribution can be made here. 

Thank you for your consideration!

Score Posting Questions
Send Additional Questions to info@mvgolf.org 
Q: If I don't hole out in the "Traditional Sense" do I still post my score ? 
Ball_in_HoleA: Yes,While in all of these instances, the ball is not holed per the Rules of Golf (Rule 3.3c), a round played under these conditions will result in an acceptable score for handicap purposes using the most likely score guidelines (see Rule 3.3 of the Rules of Handicapping).   
Q: How can I post my score if the clubhouse is closed ?
GHIN_App_IconA: Given the current concerns of spreading the Coronavirus, we are recommending that you use the USGA-GHIN Mobile Appor post through our siteor ghin.com.  This is also a good recommendation moving forward and we will likely begin phasing out our Scoring Kiosks wherever possible to avoid future contaminations. 
Q: I can't post a score as it says I'm inactive and I can't go into the Golf Shop to renew.
A: You can renew at almost all of our Public Access Facilities by following this link and selecting where you play the most golf 
when to NOT post your scores 
March 15th signaled the start of the New Score Posting Season in the Miami Valley.  Here are a few things to remember when it comes to NOTposting your score.  All other times you should!

When_to_PostSo, don't post your score....
  • When your score can’t be verified by another person
  • While being coached on the course
  • When you play using non-conforming clubs, non-conforming balls, or non-conforming tees;
  • When you don't play the required number of holes, Less than 6 for 9, less than 14 for 18.  For the holes you haven’t played, you post net par for the hole.
  • And when you are not playing your own ball — scrambles, shambles or foursomes (alternate shot).

And remember...A key tenet of the World Handicap System is that it is based on the fact that a you will try to make the best score at every hole in every round. 

So you post just about everything and that includes scores when you play Preferred Lies or adapting to modified Holes due to the Coronavirus !
