Bubba Watson Wins The Masters

Congratulations to the 2012 Winner of The Masters, and fellow lefty, Bubba Watson! Bubba is definitely a crowd favorite, especially in the State of Georgia (he is a Georgia Bulldog after all).

This is what I try to preach here on Do not get me wrong, I am not suggesting that you do not seek out a professional for a few lessons or record your swing to see what your swing looks like and how you might be improved.

While they do offer fitting services, which I took advantage of last year, and there was value in doing so, it just seemed that daydream of “something more” would stay just that; a daydream. Well, my fellow daydreamers, I bring tidings of great joy! At least to those of you in the Delaware Valley/Philadelphia area. Such a place does exist and has opened its doors in our area! No, I’m not kidding! Promise! Club Champion golf fitters, which is based in Chicago, has expanded and chosen Philadelphia as their first destination. They have settled in Bala Cynwyd, PA, which is easily accessible by all the States that border Southeastern Pennsylvania. I was alerted of their arrival by a fellow golf blogger, Ryan Becker, who I had the pleasure of meeting...
