Analysis of Skinfolds
According to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, select skinfold equations can have a marked overestimation of body fatness. When it comes to body fat testing, periodic skinfold measurements will give a reflection of change despite the estimate of body fat percent. Read more about the two testing methods used by our Personal Trainers in Amber's recent blog post. (http://sacdt.com/dt/blog/2013/03/analysis-of-skinfolds/).

Reading Greens: Visualize Lines and Curves
Using a True Roller training device to display how a green reacts, this weeks tip is best understood with the latest SAC Elite Golf video tip. Knowing more about the topography of the green and how it reacts to the path of your ball is critical to making the appropriate fine adjustments in your stroke to sink more putts. To do this, it is important to judge a green using lines and curves as reference points. By visualizing the ball path through lines and curves, you will be in a better position to judge where a ball may break and at what distance you may need a ball to break in order to develop greater accuracy in your short game.

SAC Elite Golf Weekly Tip - Putting with Confidence
If your putts are coming up short, or nearly miss the hole, you may need to build some confidence in your stroke. A drill that helps you build confidence in your putting stroke can be easily arranged on a practice green. Simply place a club horizontally in front of the hole (at the back/leading edge of the cup) so you have to cross over the shaft when attempting to make a putt. Once the club is set in this position, move away from the hole and square up to the shaft of the club. Take a few strokes to attempt to make a putt with the ball hopping over the shaft. It should take you a few strokes to find the right amount of force to put into your stroke. Once find this “sweet spot”, take away the club in front of the hole and see how your new stroke feels compared to your old stroke. You should see that you have a more confident putting stroke that places the ball a little further in to the hole.
