A golf training ground with indoor and outdoor practice facilities, Woods to Wedges invites club-wielding trainees to shore up unstable swings year round. Aspiring aces can tame disobedient drives with a private 45-minute lesson from PGA instructor Tim Chrzan, who scares off unwelcome slices and snap-hooks with an incisive understanding of swing mechanics and a gunny sack of golf balls painted like eyeballs. Those bearing a punch card for 10 buckets of range balls reap 115 dimpled orbs during each session, each of which obediently prostrates itself at the spiked feet of its master before lifting off into the stratus. Punch-card sessions can be used at one of Woods to Wedges’ two indoor hitting bays or at the outdoor range, where all-grass tees emulate natural course conditions and help break pathological nine-irons from their irrational fear of dirt. Woods to Wedges rounds out its all-encompassing practice facilities with a practice sand trap, an indoor putting green, and video swing-analysis technology during instruction.
Woods to Wedges
Tim Chrzan began playing golf in 1963. From the start, he worked with instructors whose methods were ahead of their time, which helped Tim earn a PGA membership in 1983. Today, the PGA Pro heads the instructional efforts at Woods to Wedges: a year-round practice facility equipped with both indoor and outdoor training areas.
Like his instructors decades ago, Tim has developed a method that is logical and easy to follow for all levels. He combines that wisdom with modern technology, including a putting analyzer and a full-swing bay that measures everything from club speed and path to ball flight and spin. Outside the Woods to Wedges facility, Tim works with golfers at chipping targets, faux bunkers, and even on a replica fairway. In addition to lessons, Woods to Wedges also offers club repairs and custom fitting services.
