Becky Brewerton day was a great success
It was great to host our ladies exhibition day last week, with European Tour Player and Solheim Cupper Becky Brewerton. Becky took the time out of her busy schedule to entertain the ladies with some long game, putting and short game skills.
This was a first for Girton golf club and a great day was had by all. The Highlight for me was Becky ripping driver off the deck!

Odyssey Works Putter Range
For me, Odyssey putters have alwaysbeen great looking putters, but the original white hot face was so soft that a lot of players struggled on slower greens. With the new 'Works' range, the idea was to combine the soft, consistent feel of the White Hot insert, with the roll benefits of the latter Metal-X pattern.
They have then added a very sharp finish to last year's versa alignment design, creating a great looking, great feeling putter than provides an excellent roll.
Pros - Superb design, easyto align, multiple putter head options, great feel.
Cons - The versa design and larger Odyssey designs might not be to everyone's taste if you are used to a very traditional colour and shaped putter.
Mark your ball for better alignment
Are you good at reading putts but can't start them on your intended line? How about drawing a straight line around the equator of your golf ball with a permanent marker. After you mark your golf ball on the green, replace it on the green by aligning the golf ball line to your intended putting line.
The rules of golf allow you to do this, so why not take advantage of this! The visual aid of the golf ball line makes it easier to hit your putts on the path you want, and avoid a swiping or hooking motion that puts sidespin on your ball.
Your putter will have some sort of alignment aid on it, such as a line, or some white circles that represent balls, or something similar... why not extend this concept to the golf ball?
