Avoiding Your Long Irons?

20 Sept First Tee Logo

Approach play becomes so much easier and more enjoyable when you’re confident with your longer irons. If your long irons are a constant struggle, let’s change that. Is there a swing change we could make? Or perhaps your lie angle is incorrect? Maybe hybrids would be better suited to your game?

Let’s figure out the best way to improve your approach play.

Maybe it’s not your fault

Sliced your drive? Hooked your iron shot? Missed the green from inside 100 yards? Sometimes the reason for these mishits isn’t your swing.

21 Sept GOlf 1

A driver shaft with the incorrect flex for you makes it difficult to square the club face at impact. That means more slices off the tee

21 Sept Golf 2

A lie angle that’s too upright for you can cause the club face to close at impact, resulting in hooked shots.

21 Sept Golf 4

There are many types of wedge shots that can be played within 100 yards. Playing with the right bounce and grind makes it easier to strike the ball cleanly.

Make the game easier
Golf’s tough enough as it is, why make it more difficult by playing with equipment that isn’t fitted for you? Let’s start by making sure you’ve got the basics, like lie angle and shaft flex, in place.

Port St. Lucie - The lush, expansive views of the St. Lucie Trail Golf Club in Port St. Lucie recently served as the backdrop for a Charity Golf Tournament to benefit Guardian’s for New Futures Children’s Advocacy Center|Baron.

Presented by Baron Real Estate and sponsored by many local businesses, including title sponsor St. Lucie Battery & Tire, the four-person scramble format offered a few premier opportunities to win big.

Although no one scored the elusive hole-in-one and walked away with the shiny-new Audi, sponsored by Stuart Audi, or the $10,000 put up by Lott Insurance, supporters sure had fun trying!

“This center is all about changing the trajectory of lives of the children in our community,” said Debbie Butler, Board President of Guardians for New Futures.

“The Advocacy Center is, essentially, a one-stop-shop for abused and neglected children entering the system and coming into our care. All the necessary resources will be in one location, thereby reducing the trauma on the children.”

“Not having to retell their story over and over again,” said Florida State Rep. Dana Trabulsy, “and being re-traumatized each time will help the speed of services and the healing process.”

Trabulsy, who sponsored a bill with State Senator Gayle Harrell, which Governor Ron Desantis ultimately signed, brings $1.3 million for the project.

“The Children’s Advocacy Center is a blessing to victims at their most vulnerable moment.”

For their part, Jason Yarborough, CEO, and the rest of the Baron Real Estate team are excited to help fundraise for the nonprofit. They are thrilled to participate in events that keep the money in the local community and raise awareness for the needs of the children.

Baron Realtor Willie Brooks helped raise additional funds with his impressive live-auction skills. Many participants brought home fabulous auction prizes as well as an assortment of raffle prizes.

With a team score of 55, tournament winners include Jason Wheeler, Marcus Sigmon, Nick Madden, and Nick Sama!

Article and Photos by: MaryAnn Ketcham

Michael Bonneville, the incoming head coach for the newly built Tradition Prep High School in Port St. Lucie, recently traded in his cleats for golf shoes! Not afraid of getting dirty or the hard work involved with implementing and building a successful program, Bonneville jumped right in and co-chaired, along with Marketing Director Jill Todd, the school's Football Team Golf Fundraiser at Gator Trace Golf & Country Club in Fort Pierce.

Thanks to a full complement of teams, a $10,000 title sponsorship from Mattamy Homes, and numerous raffle donations, the tournament raised $35,000, which will help provide the necessary equipment serving as a tremendous kickoff for the young athletes.

"Thank you to Mattamy Homes for their continued support of Tradition High School! Not only are they helping us build a world-class educational setting," said Principal Teresa Brown. "but they are providing opportunities for our students to follow their passions through their support of our athletic programs."

As the new school is currently accepting 9th and 10th-grade students, the athletes will begin competition at the Junior Varsity level, with the first game scheduled for Sept. 9th, at home, versus Vero Beach High School.

"Thank you so much to the community for your support. I am happy to join this amazing community in Port St Lucie," said Bonneville. "Our boys have been working hard all summer to prepare for the upcoming season. I am so proud of their GRIT - they have truly shown growth, resilience, integrity, and tenacity this summer! We can't wait to get on the field and show our Pirate Pride and Commitment to Excellence!"

Bonneville played football for Bethune-Cookman University, where he was named "Athlete of the Year" by the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. He also competed in the Arena and Indoor Football Leagues.

His successful coaching career includes time spent at Dr. Phillips, Edgewater, Wekiva, and Moore-Haven High Schools as an assistant coach.

As Head Coach of the Central Florida Christian Academy, he brought his team to the semi-finals. Named Coach of the Year at Dr. Phillips High School, he led the JV team to an undefeated season.

During his tenure at Haines City High School, Bonneville helped grow the program from 26 academically eligible players to 80 such players, several of whom signed to play college football! Before heading to Tradition Prep, Bonneville served as the Head Coach for Warner Christian, a small private school where he saved the program from collapse.

He most recently completed an internship as a Pro/College Football Video Scout for Sports Info Solutions.

Sit Less, Swing Better Restore the Rhythm

Article by: Judy Alverez - First Tee

Is your swing feeling stiff? Are you sitting for several hours a day? Your shoulders could be part of the problem. The anatomical term for your shoulder blades is “scapulae”. Your upper arm bone – the humerus – connects to your scapula. They work together to help you make a full shoulder rotation and swing on plane. This interaction is called “scapulohumeral rhythm”.

20 Sept First Tee Photo

Sitting too much messes with this rhythm because it pulls your shoulders forward, disrupting the scapula muscles, causing them to tilt and become unstable. When this happens, your golf swing will be restricted and you may experience pain at your shoulder blades.
