Greetings to DestinGOLF.info HOT DEALS Subscribers,

You might not have heard my name, but you probably have heard of the Slope System in golf handicapping. I was the inventor of the USGA Course Rating and Slope Rating Systems during my 16 years on the USGA Staff as Senior Director of Handicapping and GHIN. I was given the nickname “Pope of Slope” which has stuck with me for 40 years.

During that time I analyzed millions of rounds by amateur golfers and in the process confirmed the most important keys to having a lower handicap. In my spare time, I also studied golf club technology and learned what types of golf clubs would enable golfers to reduce their scores.

The results may surprise you as they did me. However…

THE KEY TO AMATEUR GOLFERS ACHIEVING LOWER SCORES IS TO INCREASE THE NUMBER OF GREENS IN REGULATION (“GIR”).

When golfers miss greens in regulation they often end up with bogies or worse. My good friend, Dr. Lou Riccio has confirmed this and shows a higher correlation between GIR and handicap than any other factor.

THE TWO KEYS TO ACHIEVING MORE GIR ARE:

1. MORE FAIRWAYS IN REGULATION.
2. CONSISTENT DISTANCE FROM THE CLUBS YOU USE FOR APPROACH SHOTS.

– Golfers achieve more GIR when hitting from the fairway compared to hitting out of the rough with even less distance to the green.

– Equally important is having consistent distance for each club in your bag used for approach shots to the green. A major reason amateurs are unable to achieve this is because they hit on the toe or heel approximately 50% of the time and all major brands metal woods steel faces. There is less trampoline effect in the toe and heel and particularly with steel faces, so that is why on average their shots fall short of the green approximately 50% of the time and end up with bogies or worse.

My design of the High Heat driver addresses the first key to more GIR – increased fairways. The 25% deeper and 18% lower center of gravity (“CG”) in High Heat clubs compared to major brands reduces the twisting on off-center hits, thus increasing accuracy, leading to more fairways hit in regulation and more distance on off-center hits. Major brands create their clubs with Tour Pros in mind. Our design considers the performance needs of amateurs.

I’m humbled that my Optimum CG Technology has won several awards and the High Heat driver was named best at the PGA Show by several prominent media outlets. Also we’re pleased that high-profile instructors have given rave reviews of our clubs. But most importantly, amateur golfers raved about how our driver increased their accuracy and distance, and lowered their scores.

When we then launched our High Heat fairway woods and hybrids and they were named the “best” by major media again for amateur golfers. In addition to our CG technology, all High Heat fairway woods and hybrids have titanium faces, a big improvement over steel faces in the major brands’ clubs.

Titanium faces have much greater trampoline effect than steel faces on toe and heel hits. This is why our customers increased their distance on off-center hits and thereby reach more greens with our metal woods for lower scores.

That, and the big news about a new USGA CT Rule change below which major brands never mention, covers key No. 2 to more GIR – we have increased the trampoline effect on our metal woods even more so that you will now achieve consistent distance on your approach shots no matter where you hit it on the face.

THE USGA’S RECENT CT RULE CHANGE PROVIDES AMATEURS THE GREATEST POSSIBILITY TO CONSISTENTLY OBTAIN MAXIMUM DISTANCE ON APPROACH SHOTS

The new USGA rule permits a conforming golf face to have a higher amount of time a golf ball can stay on the face (CT), but only in the toe and heel areas of the face. This increases the ball’s energy and ball speed for more distance on off-center hits.

THE RESULT? Amateurs will obtain about the same distance no matter where they hit their fairway wood or hybrid on the face without any swing change.

IMPOSSIBLE TO CREATE? As a matter of physics, golf faces perform like trampolines. The highest spring-like effect has occurred on or near the middle of the face and the least amount in the toe and heel areas.

It seemed impossible, but we figured it out how to create the novel idea of having 3 largely independent trampolines in the face. Now…

HIGH HEAT 257+ IS THE ONLY BRAND THAT TAKES ADVANTAGE OF THE NEW USGA CT RULE SO THAT AMATEURS OBTAIN ABOUT THE SAME DISTANCE ON FAIRWAY WOODS AND HYBRIDS ON APPROACH SHOTS.

The comparison below of the CT values for major brands’ use of steel faces and variable thickness face technology compared to High Heat 257+ with titanium faces and 3-Trampoline face technology is instructive. Now when comparing the CT values, you will now know why you are short of the green approximately 50% of the time with your current metal woods, and why Vic Williams, Editor of Golf Tip Magazine wrote “amateur golfers lose 20-30 yards on off-center hits with historically low CT” and “High Heat 257+ unique face construction puts big distance across the face.”

I invite you to visit us at our website www.HighHeatGolf.com and read:

• Reviews by media, including Golf Tips which not only named High Heat 257+ the best new club at the PGA Show” put said “all amateurs should buy High Heat 257+”, and teaching professionals about how they achieved the same distance on their off-center hits as their center hits ; and

• Most importantly, reviews by amateur golfers just like yourself who with our award winning technology have more fairways and added distance with our driver and more greens in regulation with our metal woods and reduced their scores.

We believe in our clubs and technology so much we offer a 30-day guarantee. In addition, when placing your order select Destin Golf when asked how did you hear about us and you will receive a 15% savings off our standard price.

All my best in golf,
