For many years, I’ve purchased my daddy many golf-related gifts for Father’s Day. The majority of them were linked to the United States Open in some way or another, as the competition coincides with Father’s Day every year.When I was much more youthful, I recall buying him a chipper from a large sporting goods merchant. He didn’t use the club often.
Don’t be lame like me. This year, if you have the monetary ways and you are trying to find something really unique to shock your old guy with, send him to Sea Island Resort. More specifically, get him a package deal with some golf, an overnight stay with mother at the Lodge at Sea Island Golf Club, a Forbes Five-Star AAA Five-Diamond resort, and top it off with a day-long training session at the resort’s Golf Performance.
During a recent golf journey to Sea Island, I had a chance to go through the resort’s brand-new efficiency center, which underwent a total renovation in 2014. There’s now an indoor putting lab, five outdoor, covered meeting bays and a broadened modern golf-fitness area. (Through screening, I learned I can touch my toes with my legs directly like a PGA Tour pro. Let’s simply say that the other screening broad jump, crouches, arm lifts, etc. did not produce Tour-caliber outcomes.).
The comprehensive game analysis assessment, referred to as the Player’s Performance Index, will cost you $395, less than many new motorists on the marketplace.On the surface, you might believe that the efficiency center is simply another place that evaluates your swing as you strike balls into a screen. Been there, done that. If that s exactly what you want to get for daddy, you can discover that at a lot of Dick's Sporting Goods DKS -3.23% or PGA Tour Superstore places. You d save a lot of money, too.
What sets Sea Island apart though, aside from the sensational ocean views throughout Saint Simons Sound, is the gain access to you can get to the location’s top teaching pros, such as swing trainers Todd Anderson, veteran PGA Tour fitness trainer Randy Myers, and master club fitter Craig Allan, just to name a few. During the year, these teachers work straight with many of golf’s top PGA Tour gamers who also call the Sea Island location home, including Davis Love III, Brandt Snedeker, Billy Horschel and Brian Harman. You won’t discover those names at Dick s.
And simply because your dad might be a high-handicap gamer, that doesn’t mean he’s not worthwhile of expert treatment. Anderson and his staff treat every golf player the exact same. As an 11-handicapper who sent a couple of (okay, perhaps 6) short chip shots yelling over the practice putting green, I can ensure you that the instructors are extremely expert and didn’t make fun of my video game. Well, a minimum of not in front of me. I m sure they d alleviate your dad the exact same.
