FootJoy Freestyle Titleist FJ Matchplay Championship - 2016

Good Morning,

The clocks went forward, spring arrived and so did Storm Kate, however that didn't stop a great opening weekend of competitions at the golf club.

The fourball betterball medal was a great success with plenty of pairs entering and with some great scores in the winners' cup on Sunday in terrible weather. This Easter weekend means that we are back underway and it is time to think about your practice, golf improvement and golf tournaments for the season. Remember in the shop we still have the entry forms for all the major competitions so if you haven't entered, now is the perfect time.

This is a busy week for us in the pro shop with our Spring Pro's Day on Saturday! There are still a few tee times available, so remember this is our way of giving back to the club, encouraging some fun social golf and some friendly competition with a great prize to play Woburn with two our your golf professionals.

Added to the day - Along with some great prizes already in place, we have also added a prize draw challenge hole. This will give you a chance to enter on the tee with one of the professionals. £1 entry and if you hit the green you will be put into a prize draw to win a Callaway Mack Daddy wedge worth £99. Worth a £1 bet I am sure!

So if you haven't entered the tournament and would like to, please contact us ASAP so we can fit you in. Remember it is open TO ALL members (men and women) and teams can be mixed!

Pros news 

Have you set your goals?

So you may often here it, use SMARTER goals in life to achieve your objectives. How do you know you have succeeded if you didn't set goals in the first place?

This all may well be perfectly valid, but for I want to look at a slightly different angle. I personally don't think you can ever just set outcome type goals, I mean it generally assumes that effort and work put in gives you the desired result. Here's the problem, in golf it doesn't always work like this due the too variable, chaotic nature of the game.

Here's how you may want to think about your golfing goals...

Performance Goal

  • What do I want to achieve? Reduce my handicap, shoot lower scores, win a tournament?
  • What parts of my game do I need to change to reach it? Hit more fairways, hit wedges closer, less putts per green in regulation?

Learning Goal

  • What's stopping me achieving these goals now? Swing movement, thought process, warm up routine, practice patterns?

By working on the learning goals the performance goals will have a greater chance of being fulfilled. Whilst you focus on the performance goals with no framework, understanding what needs to be done to change it, or worse by just setting the goal and carrying out the same thing over and over again.

Performance goals alone are just thoughts and wishes, goals need focus, and application to come to fruition. What are your goals and what are you willing to do?
