November issue of GOLF Magazine recently hit the newsstand with a
picture of Sergio Garcia on the front cover. Also on the front cover
was the headline, “Fix Your Game in a Weekend, Top 25 Golf Schools in
America.” Inside the issue is a fold out with a listing of the Top 25
Golf Schools in America as ranked by GOLF Magazine and the Classic
Swing Golf School is once again on the list. Wow! Yeah! Surprise,
Surprise! An even better surprise was seeing that the Classic Swing
Golf School is the most affordable of all of the Top 25 Golf Schools.
Also this month, we completed our first Peak Performance School and
finished our indoor learning studio with net, cameras and mirrors.
Top 25 ranking is an honor and a blessing. We could not and would not
have received this accolade without you, the student, feeling good
about your experience at our fine facility and enjoying a curriculum
that is helping your game. Please take this as a personal thank you,
and I will continue to improve our learning environment and quality of
instruction to make your experience the best and most affordable school

a 90 year old graduate of the three day school and the Peak Performance
School included Ralph, age 62, and Ernie, age 74. This illustrates to
me the love for golf is a passion, and it is not age discriminatory.
Also the golf stretches we are sharing seem to have an immediate impact
because some of our students are leaving here much more flexible than
when they entered our door. The following are the top three stretches
1) The criss-cross stretch with a turn to promote the importance of upper torso flexibility
The waist-bend with extension is for the lumbar and thoracic regions,
the lats, and arms. It also isolates the hamstrings and glutes while
keeping the knees locked
The Power Fan is our favorite training aid for increasing clubhead
speed, but it is also a great stretching tool. If you are looking for
distance, then The Power Fan is golf’s number one teaching aid to
stretch and strengthen golf specific muscles from head to toe.
