Shell Classic Clinic Series: May 16-May 18

Peninsula

It’s time to treat yourself to an extended stay in Gulf Shores with your girlfriends!

 

Join us at the 2022 Shell Classic Clinic Series & Exhibition, sponsored by Titleist & FootJoy. Before you enjoy one of the best women’s invitationals in the country, experience an exceptional opportunity to improve your game by learning from LPGA Tour winners & Top 100 golf coaches.

In 2021, four teams that participated in our Shell Classic Clinic Series finished first and second in their respective flights.

Our Shell Classic Clinics are designed to help you lower your scores by improving your scoring game, creating a peak performance mindset and learning how to create an athletic and effective swing that matches how your body moves best. The clinics are designed to support any game improvement plans players may already have in place with coaches at home. Best yet, we create a dynamic and fun learning environment that allows you to immediately take your improved skills to the course on the Shell Classic tournament day.

You are invited to the Shell Classic Exhibition & Tournament Party sponsored by Titleist & FootJoy!

The Shell Classic Invitational is dedicated to providing women golfers with an extraordinary opportunity to learn from LPGA Tour legends and Top 100 Coaches while engaging with the #1 company in golf, Titleist & FootJoy.

Every tournament participant is invited to experience an evening of friendship, learning and relaxing as you watch LPGA players and coaches demonstrate golf shots and give you their secrets on how to play great golf. This year our exhibition features LPGA Tour Legend Michelle McGann! You don’t want to miss this exciting chance to meet Michelle and peek inside her competitive mind.

You’re not quite on the green. Instead you’ve hit it into a green-side bunker or you’ve left yourself that pesky 20 yard shot to a short-sided pin. These are common scenarios that can easily add a shot or two for many golfers. Join us to build confidence out of the bunkers and start hitting pitch shots that save your score instead of costing you strokes!

12:00-1:00 p.m. — Full Swing Swing Drills

Take the guess work out of how to practice effectively! Learn from the Pros–how they practice and what drills they use to improve their tempo and sequence. These drills take the over-thinking out of swinging and help you learn how to adjust your swing through feel.
