Greetings golfers,

Did you get a chance to get the shorts on last week and get out on the course. So let's keep our fingers crossed that it continues and we can keep the buzz around the golf club. This week has one of the best tournaments on the PGA schedule, TPC Sawgrass Players championship, with its famous 17th hole. After Rickie Fowler's incredible back 9 to clinch victory last year let's hope some exciting golf can captivate us this weekend. 

Club news 

Last week, saw Ollie and I compete in tournaments, unfortunately I played two pretty solid back 9s, but 2 pretty poor front 9's, there was a lot of rust and lack of competitive play, but great to be out on the links. Ollie also didn't have a great time on the course, but onwards and upwards and he has plenty of great events to play this season. 

My experience did get me thinking about a little thought for this week's newsletter… 

Thought of the week 

Raise your standard! 

I noticed that with a lack of playing, my standards were pretty low, it is not a great way to enter any event or tournament. The practice standard I set myself building up to the events was pretty poor, filing my weeks with work, coaching, gym, study, relaxing, pretty much everything but good preparation and practice ( especially on course practice). So this leads me to ask you all some questions…

What is the standard you set yourself for your golf?
Are you doing what needs to be done to reach that standard?
Does that standard include warm up, practice, putting practice pre round?
Are your clubs clean? (this one amazes me)
Do you use a consistent ball, routine, process game plan and strategy
If your strategy doesn't work are you prepared to change it? 

Believe me after some experience in tournament play, it doesn't matter what standard you set yourself, raise it and be the best golfer you can be!

Coaching news 

On-course Coaching - Real World Application

Can you afford to work with a coach on the course? Would having a skill session followed by time to apply it straight on the course be beneficial? Would be able to go out on the course give more context to the shot and open questions around you scoring better? If you think it would then sign-up to one of our on-course coaching options in May and June.

Option One with Head Professional Alan Fletcher

Acquire the skill then apply it! 30 minute skill acquisition session (based on your weakest area, putting, chipping, pitching, driving etc), followed by a 90 minute on-course coaching session looking at ways to APPLY this new skill, use it in game time and how to improve scores.

For May and June this is only £80.

Option Two with Teaching Professional Dean Saunders

Bring your friends and learn from everyone. Dean will be offering up to three people the chance to join him in a group coaching clinic. The cost is £70 split between the group, whether that be one, two or three people. Ask questions and let Dean talk you through different ways to play these shots.

To book either of these session email us here.

Fitting centre news 

Hot Products! 

Over the past few weeks we have noticed many members experiencing large distance gains through trying new products. Our most successful product so far this year would have to be the Callaway XR range, as used by Danny Willet to win the masters. 

Some members have gained over 25 yards with an iron and up to 70 yards with the woods! The XR 16 Driver is where forgiveness meets fast. They have worked with Boeing on their most aerodynamic head shape and a redesigned Speed Step, put in more MOI and added more speed with a next generation RMOTO face. All of this combines to give golfers exceptional distance! Book your free custom fitting session with myself today and try them for yourself, click here to book.
