SLR Awarded Golf Digest 2013 100 List of Best Clubfitters

Posted on April 4, 2013 by Swan Lake Resorts

Swan Lake Resort congratulates our golf team for being named to Golf Digest's 2013 list of America's 100 Best Clubfitters.

Clubfitting is the great and largely untapped frontier for golf improvement for the vast majority of golfers. Golf Digest stresses the value of fitting and we hope that this selection of the 100 Best Clubfitters helps get average golfers thinking more about clubfitting as a key element to their future enjoyment and progress in the game.

For Golf Digest, the difficulty of determining this list was substantial, and they do not enter into any ranking without the utmost diligence. They contacted many industry sources for recommended and honored facilities, they polled their national panel of more than 1,000 course raters to determine facilities that were held in the highest regard and they considered more than a thousand facilities nationwide and reviewed final nomination forms from more than 300 facilities before they could determine a list.

The list is featured in a special Get Fit package of stories in Golf Digest's May issue, and Swan Lake Resort will be added to their nationwide directory of more than a thousand fitting locations. If you are interested in exploring the opportunity that a custom clubfitting can provide to your game, contact Brian Natzel at 800.935.5616 and learn more about our extensive clubfitting services.

The main reason for swing flaws is that some golfers can’t move their bodies the way they need to in order to produce a fluid, unrestricted, and powerful swing.  If a player lacks mobility or stability in certain body parts, the player’s body will inevitably go around their limitations; creating common deviations and swing flaws.  This program will specifically target the body/swing connection and help all players find and reach their peak fitness and performance.  We are excited to be able to offer our new Golf Fitness and Performance Class at The Golf Academy at Swan Lake Resort.

What Is Included in Each Class??

Each participant will receive a physical screening that will identify any strengths and/or limitations with regards to flexibility, mobility and stability.  A digital high speed  golf swing video analysis will show the corresponding swing characteristics and relationships tied to the physical screening results.  This allows us to make the Body-Swing Connection.  Brian and Amy then align their professional findings and offer a powerful prescription of golf drills, exercise and stretching routines for each individual to improve their overall golf fitness and performance along with enhancing their everyday life.
