News Letter Course at Covid level 1
Club Captains Report
Last week JUNE 27th Saw some Match play games get completed and we are getting down to the business of the comp so well done to all so far. The rest of us played a nett comp and to be honest some off us should of taken up bowls or learnt how to knit beanies or something as it was shocking. In fact one of our team members said that he would complete the 12 holes and then go straight to the bar but if he did that he would miss the double doors. Its ok CHOP CHOP I think we can play 9 holes next week.
Robbie Busing had a blinder as well or was he blinded? by Sunstrike who was more like side-swiped. As for myself I have been doing a Theseus on if you buy good gear does this improve your game …. and the answer is simply NO!!! ….NO YOU CANT!… .But all is not lost as Richard the Crowe said Jim almost got another hole in one ON THE 7TH and my reply was I almost didn’t go Out of bounds on the 8th …Richard.
So on to more serious stuff on the 11.07.2020 the finals will be played and we would like to get some atmosphere out there and support the members who made it.
So tee times will be made from 10.30am and when your game is done you could stay and support the 36 holers. Green fee players and others who can’t make it earlier can go at 1.30pm.

PRO – TIP
CHIPPING : How to practice & improve your Chipping
Take 6 balls your 8 iron, Pw & Lob. Go to the edge of the green & hit 2 balls with each club. Take notice as to which club hits the balls nearer to the pin. Putt them into the hole. Now go to a different position & repeat 2 balls with each club & again notice which club suits the lie & angle of shot. Again have a game with yourself & putt them into the hole so that you are also practising your putting. Now go to another spot & repeat the exercise. Many golfers play the same club wherever they are around the green which then becomes their “favourite club” but not necessarily the easy club to use from the lie. Try the practice routine & see new results from a Sound Chipping Drill.
Keep Well & Stay Safe
Good Luck & Good Golfing.
