PXG is self proclaimed to be the “world’s finest golf clubs, engineered for golfers at every level”. Set up a club fitting for dad at one of their locations and receive a professional fitting with a PXG master fitter. They are trained by the engineers who produce the PXG clubs and are equipped with “a complete matrix of premium shafts that have been carefully selected for superior performance”. At the fitting, they analyze swing data and performance goals in order to effectively recommend the best club configuration for maximized distance, accuracy and overall enjoyment to increase performance for the next game.
Swag Golf pushes “the limits in a conservative sport that isn’t evolving to meet changing styles”. The brand prioritizes music, boldness, fun and golf and seeks to express it on and off the course. Their personality shows with the merchandise produced. Each product- whether that be putters, covers or other accessories, will spruce up your gear and make your next game more fun.
They get their name from the Rhodesian Ridgeback, a dog bred in Africa for hunting lions. Like the founders, the “Ridgeback perpetually craves activity and has an unmistakable ridge that runs down its back.” This inspired the co-founders to “always be ready for the next adventure”.
Purchase a session package from the coaches at Midwest Strength and Performance, who specialize in athletic training and increasing performance while reducing the risk of injury. The coaches will take dad through a series of drills to aid in hip mobility, allowing for full range of motion. Since golf is a ballistic sport, which involves sudden movements and is very much one sided, it can often create an imbalance within the body and lead to muscle fatigue, overuse and injury. The coaches will strengthen the muscles and help to restore harmony to the body and condition muscles to withstand all those swings.
When you call or email, let them know you're interested in setting up an athletic training session specific for golf.
They have in person and online training available.
