A college teacher reminds her class of tomorrow's final exam. 'Now class, I won't tolerate any excuses for you not being here tomorrow.

I might consider a nuclear attack or a serious personal injury, illness, or a death in your immediate family, but that's it, no other excuses whatsoever!'

We went to breakfast at a restaurant where the 'seniors' special' was two eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast for $2.99.
'Sounds good,' my wife said. 'But I don't want the eggs..'

'Then, I'll have to charge you $3.49 because you're ordering a la carte,'
the waitress warned her.

'You mean I'd have to pay for not taking the eggs?'
my wife asked incredulously.

'YES!' stated the waitress..
'I'll take the special then,' my wife said..

'How do you want your eggs?' the waitress asked.

'Raw and in the shell,' my wife replied.
She took the two eggs home and baked a cake.

SRIXON, a global leader in golf ball technology and innovation, announces the launch of the sixth generation Z-STAR Series golf ball.

The Srixon Z-STAR XV and Z-STAR are available in Pure White™ and Tour Yellow™ and officially launch in North America on February 1, 2019.

“Distance is one of the major strengths of my game, and I trust the performance of the Z-STAR XV like nothing else on Tour,” said professional Cameron Champ, who currently leads the Tour in driving distance. “The exceptional ball speed and distance that I’m able to generate with the Z-STAR Series gives me the unique opportunity to compete at an elite level week-in-and-week-out.”

The sixth generation Z-STAR Series features the all-new FastLayer Core, a revolutionary way to make a golf ball core. It starts soft in the center and gradually becomes firmer around its edge. This greatly enhances ball speed for maximum distance performance, while maintaining exceptional feel at impact.

“The new Z-STAR Series golf balls are built on top of the heritage of one of the most successful, trusted Tour golf balls in the market,” said Jeff Brunski, Vice President of Research and Development. “The exceptional ball speed and distance of both Z-STAR offerings are driven by the new FastLayer Core technology, producing both outstanding ball speed and launch conditions tuned for the high swing-speed, better player.”

The new Z-STAR Series golf balls feature new Spin Skin technology with Slide-Ring Material (SeRM), a urethane compound that coats the cover of every Z-STAR Series golf ball. By taking unprecedented levels of shearing force without breaking its molecular bonds, Spin Skin with SeRM is able to dig deep into your wedge and iron grooves, dramatically increasing friction and maximizing spin for more control and more stopping power on every shot.

The all-new Z-STAR Series golf balls are the first and only in the world to use Slide-Ring Material, providing a competitive advantage that cannot be matched.

“Engineered for more spin and control, the Z-STAR Series features a Spin Skin coating enhanced with SeRM, an extremely flexible material,” Brunski said. “Never before has Srixon combined so many technologies in one golf ball, to produce more friction for more spin around the green.”

The 338 Speed Dimple Pattern on each Z-STAR Series golf ball improves overall aerodynamics for better flight performance, even in the toughest wind conditions, with drivers, woods and irons.

The sixth generation Z-STAR XV features a softer urethane cover and Spin Skin with SeRM, which significantly increases greenside spin for more short game control. It features a four-piece construction with a smaller inner core and larger outer core for more distance off the tee.

“The new Z-STAR XV is hotter off the driver,” said four-time Tour winner Keegan Bradley. “It’s definitely longer with my irons as well. So, it’s a ball that’s going to help you throughout the entire bag.”

Similarly, the new Z-STAR golf ball features Spin Skin with SeRM, which increases greenside spin and short game control, while maintaining that soft feel. In addition, the 2019 Z-STAR employs a three-piece construction and slightly increased compression with a harder mantle layer for more ball speed, reduced spin, and more distance.

Custom Club Fitting, Club Building, and Repairs Module

In our continuing mission of educating true professional golf teachers, this module is separate from the primary syllabus. Not only will this module increase your knowledge; benefit the player himself or herself, but also to afford the golf pro an ancillary income generating opportunity.
Available only for the 5-Day On-Site Course and Business & Marketing Module attendees.
A minimum of 6 students per class is required. $100.00 – 4 hours

________________________________________

Take a walk up and down the driving range, and a few things immediately are observable:
1. Not All Golfers Talk the Same
2. Not All Golfers Swing the Same
3. Not All Golfers Dress the Same

Only when you can put the same swing on every golf club, can you compete at the highest level and achieve results truly commensurate with your ability.
Probably the best example of this commitment to precision tuned and precision manufacturing, was when the great Ben Hogan invited Jack Fleck to the Hogan factory in Fort Worth to be fitted a set of precision Hogan golf clubs. The difference to Jack Fleck’s game resulted in his winning of the 1955 US Open over none other than Ben Hogan himself in a playoff.

Today all tour players today are precisely fit and most equipped with precision golf sets. There are 14 different considerations to include when custom fitting a set of clubs. On the other hand, the majority of the general golf public is stuck with off the shelf, mass- produced, inferior sets of clubs that do not match their swings.

So what’s the point? Custom Fitting is BACK. BIG TIME and we are not talking about the major manufacturer’s “Golf Fitting Carts” found on ranges and country clubs. Another favorable consideration – custom fitting runs about the same price as off the shelf clubs and if one has access to custom fitting, it would be well worth the time and effort.

Benefits:

• Taught by Professional Clubmakers’ Society members in their shops
• Learn to build, repair and fit golf clubs
• Offers student total service under one roof
• Lucrative cash generating option

Learn to build, repair and fit golf clubs. You will be taught how to determine loft, lie angles, shaft types and shaft replacement, shaft flexes, length, grip size and grip replacement, kick points and head designs and refinishing that will allow your customer/student to obtain the best possible clubs suited for his game.
