Jesse Crowe is taking his fun and productive Power Golf winter program to Fitness Maxx for 2013.

“Powergolf is going to wake up your golf muscles after some time off and teach you how to hit it farther than you ever have,” said Crowe, a fun-loving Kalamalka Laker grad and the head pro at Canoe Creek Golf Course in Salmon Arm.

The six-lesson series is in its sixth season and will begin on Monday, Jan. 21 with options of classes every Monday 7-8:20, Wednesday, 7-8:20 or Friday 6-7:20 nights or two separate classes Saturday 11 a.m.-12:20 p.m. or 12:30-1:50. p.m.

Crowe has more than 17 years of instructional experience. He was the head pro at Mabel Lake Golf Course and an assistant pro at the Vernon Golf & Country Club before joining Canoe Creek.

The opening lesson will focus on grip and power posture, followed by work on power stance and your power leg, the keys to hitting the ball long.

Each series includes six sessions, including five in the gym and one final class at Canoe Creek Golf Course in the early spring. Every participant will also receive a two-for-one green fee voucher for Canoe Creek.

“The five lessons in the gym will focus on techniques that allow the golfer to swing with power and control and cover key elements of the power grip and power stance, proper finish position and your power leg and power turn,” said Crowe, a father of two.

Golfers will get a lesson on drills for the driving range they can use in season, including some on the mental side of the game.

“I love teaching this class because everyone gets better by the end and starts the season ahead of the game. Golf courses keep getting longer and the best way to tackle that is to hit the ball farther. I know everyone who takes this course will have fun and be golf ready at the start of the season so they avoid injury and they improve.”
