Set on one of the most historic university campuses in the world, our Notre Dame Boys and Advanced Golf Camps provide a fun filled week of golf and summer activities. Instructed by the Fighting Irish coaching staff, with assistance from PGA professionals, our camps are designed to foster both golf improvement and lasting relationships. While the Boys Golf Camp includes daily individual and group instruction sessions, competition and various fun activities similar to the Advanced Golf Camp, the Advanced Camp offers more individualized instruction and a higher level of competition.
Golf is a highly dynamic sport that requires stability, balance, flexibility and coordination in addition to body awareness so using explosive and reactive power will generate the golf swing that a player desires! In the explosive power movements, you create a single movement in one direction but reactive power combines two or more muscle movements or create power.
If the goal is to create more acceleration with the club head, then increased flexibility would logically produce more power.

The Need to Establish a Game Plan Prior to a Tournament.
Do you take practice rounds prior to a tournament seriously? After completing a practice round, do you have a game plan for the tournament? Are you keeping score in a practice round and then setting a score expectation for the tournament? Ask yourself these questions as summer approaches and you ready yourself for the tournament circuit. Many of you will be playing in multi-day tournaments or high-level one-day qualifiers like the US Junior qualifier this summer. Playing a practice round for these types of events will allow you to create an effective game plan for the tournament.
