So you’ve had lessons, play golf several times a week, and you still can’t figure out why your game hasn’t improved. You may have even bought a new set of clubs because you were so frustrated, but you’re still hooking and slicing every shot. So what’s the problem? Are you just destined to be a bogey golfer for the rest of your life?
Tony Porter may have the answer.
As owner/operator of Tony’s Club House in Peterborough for more than a decade Tony has provided many golfers in the area with the tips and strategies needed to improve their games.
“Some people go out and spend thousands of dollars on new clubs, but they neglect to invest the time required to have them fitted properly. It can make all the difference,” said Porter.
Porter offers many products and services including; golf equipment repairs, re-gripping, re-shafting, club fittings and new golf equipment sales.
“There are so many people that don’t have the right clubs. We all have different swings, the consistent thing should be the club. It makes a big difference,” stressed Porter.
A graduate of the golf repair and fitting program at Golf Works Canada, Porter likes to work with clients on an individual basis. He runs his business by appointment only and takes the time to get to know each golfer’s swing.
“I like to meet up with clients out at a local driving range or course, have them hit some balls, and I critique their swing. It’s amazing how a few simple adjustments can improve someone’s game.”
Porter plans on being out in the community again this season, so check back regularly or contact him at [email protected] to be on his mailing list. “We bring in clubs, let golfers hit a few balls and try a variety of clubs out with various shafts and grips. Most people end up walking away with a new club and come back later in the season to say thanks and tell me what a difference the club has made to their game.”
Porter has been an avid golfer for 25 years and enjoys golfing in the Peterborough area. You can find him roaming the fairways of his favourite courses.
