On the Mark: Instant Fixes for Pitching
August 06, 2018

Mark Hackett, Director of Instruction at Old Palm Golf Club, shares some advice on how to instantly fix your shorthand golf game. Hackett was featured in Golf Magazine’s June 2018 issue and is deemed as one of American’s top 100 golf teachers.

Hackett explains that a player's stance over the ball is key to a perfect chip or pitch.

However, these drivers undoubtedly stand out from the crowd. The M1 and M2 drivers are some of the finest available, and each was constructed with a unique golf style in mind.

The M1 vs. the M2

Before you can decide which of the two drivers you should take out on the green, you must first understand what differentiates the M1 from the M2. If customization is what you are after, the M1 is likely to be a dream come true.
