Making Hole-In-One History

Thursday, August 31, 2017

Who was the first? Being the first at anything usually guarantees you a spot in the record books. This certainly applies to Tom Morris who was the first to make a hole-in-one in golf history.

Young Tom Morris, 18 years old at the time, would go on to win that Open Championship at Prestwick — the 10th played — by nine shots over runner-up Bob Kirk. Young Tom’s father, Old Tom Morris, finished in sixth-place, 23 shots behind his son. The field consisted of just 14 players.

The Young Tom Morris ace happened on the 166-yard, par-3, eighth hole — the “Station Hole” — on Prestwick’s original 12-hole course in the first round of the Open Championship, played on Sept. 16, 1869.

It’s important to know who was the first, but we think it’s even more important to know that he won’t be the last. And with US Hole In One it’s easy to give your golfers the chance to make the winning shot just like Tom Morris.

Get That Professional Swing

Thursday, August 10, 2017

Golfers frequently think about how and why proficient golfers’ swings look so easy. They ask why their own particular swings feel and look so different. After all its a little white ball moving with a swing adding up to an interwoven of moving parts and pressure. So what makes the players swings so unique? Here a few tips for your golfers to make sure that their swing is together for your next tournament!

Don’t Move

Maybe the greatest distinction between the swing of someone is the level of effectiveness. A player has an efficient swing when nothing in the body moves that doesn’t help the swing. A golfer who has a turn around rotate in the spine, leaves pose, significantly twists the lead arm in the backswing, flips the hands side-to-side, and moves his feet like he’s barefooted on blacktop won’t just have a troublesome time kicking it into high gear the ball to carry on, however won’t precisely look great while attempting.

Be Calm

The calmer a swing, the more effective it is; and the more proficient it is, the less it should be settled. Most golfers, in light of setup issues or additional moving parts, wind up using the hands and arms to adjust. It is exceptionally hard to reliably control the course and separation of golf shots when the deftness is working extra time to compensate for poor arrangement at address, or for flying elbows in the backswing. Furthermore, it’s hard to look and feel great when the hands and arms are stressing to make amendments.

Control Your Spine

One of the principle factors in a tranquil swing is spine steadiness. The spine gives an establishment to the swing. Each time the spine moves, the arms and the club respond, and the edge of the clubface changes. The trap, which golfers like Annika Sorenstam pull off, is to pivot on the spine, with negligible development of the spine itself. At the point when the spine is steady, the club has a tendency to be steady, and a golfer can just pivot through the shot without having to reroute or control the club. The absence of pressure in the exertion makes the swing look smooth.

Feel The Beat

Beat is another factor that isolates great golfers. Beat is particularly essential amid the change from backswing to downswing. A quick, jerky swing will again make the club shaky. It will have a tendency to escape plane, or the face will pivot, which implies it’s opportunity at the end of the day for those exhausted paramedics of the golf swing, the arms and hands, to do their thing.

Now that their swing is in order how about having them put it to use at your next Hole In One tournament? See if their swing can have them take home the grand prize! For more information give us a call at 888-882-5440 or email us at info@usholeinone.com.

Golf Season Is Far From Over!

Monday, August 7, 2017

Labor Day is approaching. This holiday, which is known for taking a break from work ironically signals the end of play for many activities – and golf is usually one of them. The further North you go, the shorter the season. The further South you go the longer the season. But generally, does golf typically have to end with the start of fall?

Golfers who are putting their clubs in hibernation during the fall season are passing up on a great opportunity! They’re missing out on a more enjoyable round that includes more comfortable temps and less crowds on the course. Also somewhat later in the fall (contingent upon your area) some truly amazing foliage. Climate also plays a part. With the change that we are currently experiencing with climate, we are experiencing milder weather in the months of December and January.

But aside from the leaves and pumpkins are fun contests and prizes available for your golfers to take advantage of next season. Holding a Hole In One, Putting, or Shootout Contest with US Hole In One will will be a great way to draw in golfers to your tournament. And by holding a contest with top prizes like a Ford F-150 or Hawaiian Golf Vacation will distract your golfers from the cooler weather and heat the competition up!
