Shootout 2018

  • Congratulations to the qualifiers for the Shootout final on the 27th November. Trevor Hughes was the big mover last Saturday and he has promoted himself to assistant chef.

  • The chefs will have the sausages simmering and the refreshments ready at the 10th tee while you wait for everyone to finish the first 9 holes and the 8 who will join Nathan and Trevor for the final 9 holes are sorted out.

  • The 10 players who go into the last nine knockout holes all tee off trying for their best possible nett score. When all players have putted out the scores are assessed and the highest nett score is eliminated and paid out. If there is a tie for last place a chip off takes place. Furthest from the pin is the loser. Note the longer you survive the greater the payout!!

The results and tee off times for the 27th are below. If you can't play please ring me 7547927 as soon as possible so that a replacement from the reserve list can be found.

The dreaded SLICE !!!

Everyone slices the ball at some stage in your golfing life, the secret is to control it. The practice area is where you learn to do this. Firstly understand WHY you slice!

1. The club face is coming across the ball, teachers call it the out-to-in swing path.

2. The fault is using too much effort from the “little body” at the start of the downswing & the head plus the body gets in front of the ball.

3. Also realise that if the body is moving faster through impact than the right hand the club face will usually be open.

4. The feeling should be that your hands square up the club face going PAST “little body” not the other way round. Sit in a chair & imagine holding a club, turn to your right as though making a backswing, now swing to the left.

There you have just seen the hands go over & past your body!

5. Take the effort out of your body & get that right hand PAST A STEADY HEAD!

6. Reverse this instruction for you Lefties.

Good Luck & Good Golfing

Professional John Garner.
