reminder to all of those long hitters out there it is not a

The next question is what are the optimum launch angles
and proper spin rates to create the best “Hop” for your
driver? This all depends on ball speed/swing speed of the
individual player. A tour player with 170 mph ball speed
is looking at a 17 degree launch angle with 1700 rpm of
spin off the driver face to create the maximum hop on
their golf ball. Composite head drivers are lighter and
create more club head speed, but can also create more
spin off the club face which is bad. Most club players do
not have enough loft on their driver and their shafts are
too stiff to create optimum “hop”. Ideally we want the
first bounce on the fairway to be forward, which means
at 140-150 mph of ball speed or 90-100 mph of club head
speed we would like to see somewhere between 14-16
degrees of launch and under 3000 rpm of spin to create
the best optimums for distance.
If you haven't had a chance to work with us using this
new technology, call the Golf Shop to set up a time before
the season starts.

LEARNING MORE ABOUT THE GOLDEN ROTARY
Rotary International Student Exchange Program
Getting off the plane in a foreign country where you barely know
the language is a scary experience, especially when you’re moving
there for an entire school year. This is what our high school exchange
students feel when they arrive, but they are quickly greeted and
paired up with amazing host families. Students typically attend
Golden High School and engage in school activities, Interact activities
and Rotary club activities. This program helps promote international
goodwill and better friendships, and it gives the exchange student and host families the opportunity to share
cultures and create better understanding. This year The Rotary Club of Golden is hosting a female student from
Denmark, Mallin. She sums up her year so far… “for me it has been an interesting ride. It has gone by so fast! It’s
really scary. My three host families have taught me a lot about different American cultures, that not everyone is
the same. Because of my host families, I’ve tried lots of new things, like climbing. My best memories are hanging
out with the exchange students and just having lots of fun!” So far this year, she has participated in the school
cheer program, the art club, and Interact. With the Rotary Exchange Program, all students have been up skiing and
before they leave for home in July, they will participate in a two week bus trip through the southwestern states and
California. This is always a highlight for the students.
The exchange program helps provide exposure to new cultures and ways of life which can foster a better
understanding between people from different lands. That understanding can be the foundation upon which lasting
peace and harmony can someday rest. Benefits include immersion in another culture while adapting to a new
way of life, improving foreign language skills, assuming leadership roles shaped by lessons from the experience,
improving resumes for college or jobs and building memories and life long friendships. Local students also have the
opportunity to participate in an outgoing exchange program.
Funds from the upcoming Golf and Gala will help support this program and ensure that we provide the best
experience possible for the students.
Your support as a sponsor or golf/gala participant will be greatly appreciated. And remember, you can be a host
family or if you have a teen-age student, they can apply to be part of the outgoing program! Quotes from past
host families: “It goes without saying that the Rotary Youth Exchange Program could not exist were it not for the
willingness of families to open their homes to students they have never met. It’s a leap of faith. It is not necessary to
be a Rotarian, to be married or to have children at home to be a host family for an exchange student.” “As parents,
we want to expose our children to the world in a safe way. This is an excellent start. Our children need to see that
