Masters to be held without fans!

Augusta National says the tournament is still a go for November, but for safety reasons will be played with no patrons in attendance.

The Korn Ferry Tour Finals kick off this week at the Albertsons Boise Open. All KFT players will also retain their status next year, but they have the opportunity to earn their way into the U.S. Open with strong performances in the Finals events.

CLEVELAND GOLF INTRODUCES TWO ADDITIONAL PUTTER LINES

Cleveland Golf® is proud to announce the new Huntington Beach SOFT Premier putters, to go along with an array of new Huntington Beach SOFT models. Discover a new, premium putting experience and the confidence to sink more putts with the new Huntington Beach SOFT Premier, officially launching on Friday, Aug. 21, 2020.

“The Huntington Beach SOFT Premier builds upon the success of our current putter lineup,” said Brian Schielke, Marketing Director at Cleveland Golf. “With new head shapes, sleek designs, and a fitting system for every stroke type, we have a putter that will help any golfer improve their performance on the greens.”

The foundation of the Huntington Beach SOFT Premier is Cleveland Golf’s proprietary Speed Optimized Face Technology (SOFT). SOFT solves the crucial putting issue of distance control. SOFT normalizes the speed of putts across the entire putter face.

The center of the face features more condensed milling lines, while milling mark frequency decreases going outward from the center. Unlike similar technologies featured elsewhere, SOFT takes the next step by delivering model specific milling for each model so we can deliver optimized distance control regardless of the putter shape.

What separates the Huntington Beach SOFT Premier is a new Gray Satin finish that provides a sleek, premium look and limits glare.

Huntington Beach SOFT Premier features two specific putter grips to achieve optimal putting performance for each stroke type. For slight or strong arcing strokes, the Lamkin SINKFIT Skinny Pistol grip, combined with a toe-down weighting, will help facilitate clubhead rotation. Meanwhile, the larger Lamkin SINKFIT Pistol grip and face-balanced design is ideal for straight back stroke types.

Key Innovations Inside Huntington Beach SOFT Premier:

• Gray Satin Finish: Sleek, Gray Satin PVD finish delivers a premium appearance and instills a sense of confidence.
• Speed Optimized Face Technology: Ensuring consistent speed control and distance performance, Cleveland’s proprietary Speed Optimized Face Technology normalizes ball speed across the entire face
of the putter, even on off-center putts.
• Putting Fit System: With two different grip options, the new Huntington Beach SOFT Premier offers a precise fit depending on your
stroke type and model preference.
• Precision Milled Face: A unique diamond CNC milling pattern increases friction for a pure roll and softer feel at impact.

Furthermore, Cleveland Golf is introducing eight new tour-proven shapes to the Huntington Beach SOFT collection. These new releases offer a similar fitting system.
For slight or strong arc types, the Huntington Beach SOFT
Pistol grip comes standard, while straight back stroke types will benefit from the Huntington Beach SOFT Oversized grip.

Huntington Beach SOFT Premier putters are available for $159.99 MAP, while the new models of Huntington Beach SOFT putters are available for $129.99 MAP. Personalization is available for both models featuring 16 unique color selections and four different color fill areas for an additional $10.

Being able to conduct yourself professionally, dress the part play better golf than the membership, and know how to teach, (especially the fundamentals), are ideal ingredients to enhance your teaching practice.

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.
