9th Challenge of the year done!
This Sunday I managed to complete my 9th challenge of the year for charity. I competed in the Robin Hood ½ Marathon in Nottingham in 24degree heat and it was tough.
I managed to shave another three minutes of my best time with two hours flat which I am pleased of.
It is now all about gearing up for the New York Marathon at the beginning on November, only the matter of the Great Eastern Run ½ marathon in Peterborough before that.
Remember there is still time to sponsor me for these challenges, which you can do in person with a cheque made payable to The British Heart Foundation, or you can donate online by clicking here
What a Ryder Cup...
Well if the Ryder cup last weekend didn't get you interested in golf nothing will. Some amazing displays of golf, competitive sportsmen, teamwork and guts! For me it is the best viewing spectacle in golf! Personally my highlights were Martin Kaymer Chipping in on 16 to close out Bubba Watson on Sunday, Jamie Donaldson approach into the final whole and pretty much anything that Sergio Garcia or Rory did.
It was great to see a European Team again look so united. It goes to show that golf is maybe more about teamwork, enjoying peoples company and having a great time. If the Ryder Cup got you enthused to improve your golf why not check out one of Winter Coaching Programs...

Course Management Evening. Learn to Play Your Course a Different Way
I will be running a 2 hour evening workshop in October based around course management. We will be confirming the date this week.
For those of you interested the session will be two hours and hopefully give you an insight into playing the course you walk around every week slightly differently. We will pick some of the toughest holes on the course but also give you an idea as to how different levels can play them to improve your score. Be prepared to have some ideas challenged.
If you are interested in this then please email me firstname.lastname@example.org or let the pro shop know.
The cost will be £10 for the evening
Some great news that came from last week's Club Championship for me was AFG pupil John Creighton shooting an amazing first round score of 71 Nett 60, to go on to win the Nett Prize. He also got cut to 8.8 from 11!
Some more AFG pupil achievements go out to Sarah Peek Vout for her 2nd Place in both the Ladies Nett and gross event and Rosemary Walker on Winning the Gross!
My congratulations also go to Russell Giblett on Winning the Gross Club Championships.
A Special Mention -
I want to highlight another success this week, but one I cannot take any credit for.
Ryan's Pupil Maggie Lowe last week got cut from 33 to 29 after scoring an amazing 45 points. It is great that our coaching staff are having all round great results.
Student Of The Week - Paul Howard.
Paul and I have been working together since April 2013 and it has been a great journey, there have been significant improvements in Paul's technical ability but also his short game and putting along with course management.
I think Paul would agree we have added around 20 yards per club since our time working together and this has seen his ability to score improve. Paul is also a great advert for long term planned programme. We have a plan for each session and a way to improve his golf game, not just his technique and he does it whilst travelling abroad with work.
Here you can see a couple of the changes made to Paul's backswing the extra length can also be attributed to some great strength work he is doing in the gym.
