Solid Instruction, Better Game...
"Every golfer is built differently and therefore, no two swings are the same. With that said, the foundation of golf is built upon a solid setup and proper rotation of the club. At the Kyle Owings Golf Academy, we start with the body build and abilities of the person, then work on a proper swing to attain each golferís full potential. "
The Academy has computerized swing analysis, that will be used to breakdown your swing so that we will be able to see where you need adjustment on your swing and the progress you are making.
The indoor swing center is designed such that you can hit real golf balls in a controlled climate. In this environment we can focus on your swing and how well you have made contact with the ball. This will allow us to analyze all aspects of your swing, rather than giving too much attention to where the ball lands! We also have an outdoor driving range.
Indoor putting green has been setup that you can work on that most critical part of your game. There is also room to work on that short chip.
