Tiger is starting to prowl…..
I believe that it is just a matter of time before he dominates again.

Well, it is official !!
The new 9 holes at Shangri-La are as good as it gets.
Opening this past weekend with a flurry of activity from curious members to an MGA tournament Saturday morning, the consensus is unanimous, GREAT! Everyone pretty much expected it to be nice based on everything else that is going on out there; NO one expected it to be this nice. Congratulations to Eddy Gibbs (Owner) and Jason Sheffield (General Manager). For information call 918-257-4204.

Have a buddy, spouse or friend watch your knees while you make your golf swing.
If you have very much motion (laterally back and forward) with your knees, that will translate to a wider pattern of your golf shot. The back knee should pretty much remain “under the back hip”; keep both heels on the ground in the backswing. As always, if this doesn’t help you better give me a call, make an appointment and let’s get you fixed. 918-257-4967.

NEW – GOLF IMPROVEMENT TOOL – “Helps the amateur’s more than the pro’s!”
If you aren’t “SHAFT FLEX FITTED” you are at a disadvantage before you even tee up.
So, please read this…GRAND LAKE GOLF ACADEMY is now the official “Fitter” for in this area.
This is a new fitting system in which we can measure instantaneously if you have the right frequency shafts in your clubs. The inventor and developer proved to me that 60% of all golfers are playing with the wrong shaft frequency. Simplified, this just means you get the club face square back to the ball naturally or by force. Get the whole story by going to Naturally is of course best. We offer a fitting and swing lesson for $50; If you replace and order your shafts at $55 each including grip, we credit the $50 to your purchase. You can even use your club heads.
Call Steve at 918-257-4967 or Dave Rycroft at 918-791-5689.

From my friend Dan Kitowski over at Patricia Island Golf Club…
The Inventor of the gas golf cart died and went to Heaven.
At the Gates, St. Peter told the inventor. ‘Since you’ve been such a good man and your golf carts have changed the world, your reward is, you can hang-out with anyone you want to in heaven.’ The Inventor thought about it for a minute and then said, ‘I want to hang-out with God.’ St. Peter took the Inventor to the throne room, and introduced him to God. God recognized the inventor and commented,’ Okay, so you were the one who
invented the golf cart?’ The Inventor said, ‘Yeah, That’s me…’
God commented: ‘Well, what’s the big deal in Inventing something that’s pretty unstable, makes noise and pollution and can’t run without a road?’ The Inventor was a bit embarrassed, but finally spoke, ‘excuse me, but aren’t you the inventor of Woman?’
God said, ‘Ah, Yes. ‘Well,’ said, the inventor ‘Professional to Professional, you have some major design flaws in your Invention!
1. There’s too Much inconsistency in the Front-End Suspension ~
2. It chatters constantly at high speeds ~
3. Most of rear ends are too soft and wobble about too much ~
4. The Maintenance Costs Are Outrageous! ~
‘Hmmmmm, You may have some good points there,’ Replied God, ‘Hold On, —–’
God went to his ‘Celestial-Super-Computer’, typed in a few words and waited for the results. The Computer printed out a slip of paper and God read it ~
‘Well, it may be true that my Invention is flawed,’ God said to the inventor,
‘but according to these numbers, more men are using my invention than yours’.
