Franz Finishes the Week Claiming Many Victories

(Bluffton, SC – March 26, 2019) – A very exciting week it was for Ray Franz. It was a slingshot to the top during the final round as Franz captured the CPGA Players Championship title, as well as, the qualifying spot for the RBC Heritage. Franz, of Daniel Island Club, shot 2-under 69 in his second round to finish at 4-under par for this 36-hole championship. He finished three strokes ahead of the rest of the field to capture both titles. “I played really well these past two days, and this is going to be my first Tour event ever, so I’m pretty excited.”

As golf instructors, we are always looking for ways to change motor patterns in our players the fastest and more importantly have them stick. I am always trying to learn and research as many tactics as possible to achieve this goal and  wanted to share  one of my training methods that I use called RNT or Reactive Neuromuscular Training. RNT originated in the fitness and rehab world and is currently used by many to train athletes and strengthen patients after surgery.
