Pros news

I hope you are not feeling too windswept after the terrible conditions the last few days. Although on an upside, we weren't as bad as the PGA Tour, which suffered with trees being blown down, resulting in a Monday finished where Brandt Snedeker was victorious without even hitting a shot on Monday. A good start to his week!

So February is upon us and there is light at the end of the dark wintery tunnel. I am sure you have started looking at your diaries, the lighter evenings and getting ready and excited for the golfing season, I mean it is ONLY 63 DAYS until the US Masters anyway!

Hopefully by now though you will realise that me and the team at Girton can't wait for the weather to get better and we have a number of exciting opportunities for you to take advantage of this winter, there will be plenty of information coming out in the next couple of weeks so keep your eyes peeled.

I must also add a massive thanks to my friends at Puma Golf for their hospitality at the Emirates on Saturday afternoon. It was a great win over Burnley in the FA cup for the Arsenal.

Pretty cool view I'm sure you'd agree!

Coaching news 

Morgan's winter progress moves to the putting green 

Morgan Tritton, one of our young County players has worked hard this winter.

Her winter progress has moved to the putting green now and it is exciting to see the changes.

Morgan's postures and set up was causing her a lot of inconsistency in her stroke, check out this video to see the changes we made.

Course news

Course Management Series - Hole 1

How do you play the first hole at Girton.

Here are a few tips as I see it.

A simple Par 4 first, short but put the ball out of position and the green becomes a difficult place to hit. Positioning the tee shot is vital. I would be looking for players to hit their ball somewhere the left bunker to open up the right side of the fairway for their second shot. The left side of the fairway also gives you a great chance to play up the left side of the green.

Playing down the right side of the fairway might seem the easiest option off the tee but it can led to a trickier second.

Positioning your ball on the green is also important, dependent on the length of your drive the best place for most club golfers is the front left, it keeps you away from the 2 greenside bunkers and gives you a great chance of a two putt. Attacking a tight right flag or back left flag can cause all sorts of problems and a shot that is over the back of this green leaves a horrible chip or you could go out of bounds. A club shorter than you think and leaving a small chip might be the better way to go!
