Golf pros to lead power clinic

DOWNEY - John Marshall, a two-time super senior national long drive champion who, at age 64, routinely sends golf balls more than 300 yards, will lead a free golf clinic at Los Amigos Country Club on July 21 at 11 a.m.Marshall will explain the fundamentals of power golf and demonstrate them as well. Marshall, of Atlanta, has competed in long drive for the past eight years and was a finalist in championship competitions from 2004-07 and then 2010. He won the American Long Drivers Association national championship in 2005 and 2006. After the clinic, Marshall will be joined by former PGA Tour teaching professional and performance advisor Bob Cisco and sports medicine specialist Dr. Alfred Garbutt for an "Effortless Power Workshop" that starts at 1 p.m. Cisco is widely regarded as one of the top golf instructors in the country and has literally written the book ("Perfect Balance") on the importance of balance in a golf swing. His "plant and pivot" swing method is used by most world class professionals but few amateurs. Garbutt is a well-known chiropractor and nutritionist. He will demonstrate core stabilization drills that will help golfers increase club head speed and distance on the course. The workshop is $147. For reservations or information, call Bob Cisco at (818) 448-9694.
