Quick Fix For Easy Power

Every golfer wants to hit the ball further; many times this means buying the newest driver or hitting the gym.  Rather than draining the bank account, or pulling a muscle, take a few minuets to learn from a PGA Professional on how to power up. V-One ambassador Patrick Fannon is giving golfers a few tips on how to do just that.

Fannon explains the drill as simple yet effective, and one in which allows the golfer to feel a proper turn. Many amateurs lack the swing speed necessary for big drives due to a turning of the arms rather than the chest and shoulders. It is this complete torso turn that delivers faster club head speed and increased carry numbers.

To enjoy bigger drives and lower scores…take a look below.

A few months back, we began the process of moving our office (from our previous location in Plymouth, Michigan). We only moved a few miles down the road, however, it was a monstrous task. Thank you for being patient as we went through the process, and experienced some downtime with our phones and fax.

V1 Sports is now located in beautiful downtown Ann Arbor, Michigan on the fourth floor of the historic First National Bank Building. The city of Ann Arbor is home to the University of Michigan (Go Blue!), as well as many fast growing technology companies.

Everything is business as usual now. However, please make note of our new address:

All of our phone numbers, fax numbers, and email addresses remain the same.
