Tennessee's Game Improvement Golf works on short game skills

OAK RIDGE, Tenn. -- In any round of golf, 40 to 50 percent of all golf shots are short game shots -- played with putters and wedges. Tony Wright and Game Improvement Golf recently attended the 2013 PGA Equipment Show in Orlando, FL to be trained by the world's best putting and wedge improvement experts. He attended four training sessions at the PGA Show:

• Putter Fitting Training conducted by Bobby Dean, Edel Golf VP of Operations, and David Edel, developer of the Edel Golf Putter Fitting System. He improved his knowledge for using the Edel system - the world's most sophisticated fitting system for creating putters with perfect aim and speed control;

• Wedge Fitting and Improvement Training conducted by Mike Adams - a Golf Magazine Top 100 Instructor and developer of the Edel Golf Wedge Fitting System. He learned how to fit all levels of golfers to Edel custom wedges that will improve their short games, and proper techniques for confidently playing all types of wedge shots from around the greens:

• AimPoint Green Reading Training with Mark Sweeney, developer of the AimPoint Technologies, the World's #1 Green Reading Technology. He learned how to precisely predict the break of putts, and how to easily apply this knowledge on the golf course; and

• Science and Motion Sports (SAM) PuttLab Level 1 Certification Training conducted by Dr. Christian Marquardt, developer of the SAM PuttLab. He learned how the SAM PuttLab has been used to identify how the world's best Tour Players putt, and how to use the SAM PuttLab to help all levels of golfers improve their putting skills.

As a result of completing this training, golfers of all skill levels in East Tennessee will have access to this world-class short-game improvement knowledge. For more information on Game Improvement Golf go this this link:
