NEW – INTERNET LESSON VIDEO SWING ANALYSIS
The Blair Oko Golf Academy is excited to annouce that we will be launching our new Internet Lesson Video Swing Analysis feature!
This option allows golfers to receive swing analysis via the worldwide web. If you are curious about what’s going on with your golf swing, but don’t have the time to make it in to the Academy, or your location is not in close proximity to us, just simply provide us with a clear video of your golf swing. You don’t have to hit a golf ball in the house or anything dangerous like that, but please make sure your video shows you swinging your golf club with plenty of light in the background. Once you have made your video, just submit the video link via e-mail to us. This function works best on smart phones, iPads, etc.
The cost for Internet Lesson Video Swing Analysis is: $39.99 + GST. The turn-a-round time is 48 hours. Please e-mail all videos to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Got a quick golf question for us? ‘Quick Tips’ are only $9.99 + GST. We can provide you with professional advice for any golf issue on your mind.
We have a new payment option that allows our students to pay conveniently and securely. Just click on the PayPal logo and it will take you directly to the payment checkout page. Just be sure to include your name, a phone number where we can reach you at, and an e-mail address to send your video and swing analysis in the message options on PayPal’s payment site.
The Blair Oko Golf Academy creates a true “club” experience designed for an Edmonton climate. Our indoor golf training, virtual golf simulators, power skating treadmill and expert instruction will help you master your golf or hockey skills. Duffer, grinder or aspiring pro, come and cultivate a well-rounded game in a friendly social atmosphere.
If you don’t have a great set-up and good posture when you address the ball, you can’t expect to hit a great shot. Over time, we get put into ‘auto-pilot’ mode when we set up to the ball, and start to rely too heavily on habit and routine. It is important to take a few extra seconds, while out on the golf course, to focus on how you’re set up to the ball, if your posture is correct, and if your weight distribution from front to back is set properly. Proper set-up to the ball, and good posture will certainly enable you to hit a better shot!
Virtual leagues have wrapped up their first week of the winter golf season. It’s great to see everyone back in action again! We still have spaces available for groups and individuals who were not able to sign up prior to the league registration deadline. Stop by the shop and sign up if you’d like to get in on the fun!
