Greetings from Maurice Campbell

With the Ryder Cup starting on Friday it promises to be an exciting weekend for golf. I heard on the radio Paul Casey speaking about his Ryder Cup experiences and it was nice to hear how nervous he was on the 1st tee. Remember at the time he was one of the best players in the world. All he wanted to do was get the ball airborne. He admitted to mishitting the shot but getting away with it. So when you're playing a match or competition and feeling nervous on the 1st tee, chances are your opponents will be feeling the same. You have to trust your swing and focus on trying to strike the ball properly, do not worry about hitting it offline. Easier said than done, but with practice, achievable.

Europe and the U.S.A teams are very closely matched which should make for a thrilling finish, hopefully with Europe coming out on top again. With the likes of McIlroy, Poulter and Westwood on the team I can't imagine a more positive team atmosphere, and with the crowd behind them, a very difficult team to beat. So sit back and enjoy the wonderful golf played over the weekend.

Many members come into the shop telling me they would like to gain some extra yardage on their shots. Well the things you need to think about are: Have you got the correct shafts in your clubs. Has your Driver got the correct loft for your swing? Do you do any stretching to maintain flexibility so you can turn your body a little more and move faster through the hitting area? All these things make a difference to how far you can hit a ball. So having a set of clubs that suit you is a priority when it comes to hitting the ball further and straighter, but also a technique that builds power when the ball is struck.

Slower swing speeds require more loft on their driver to gain the correct amount of distance for their shots. The reason for this is just like when you use a hose pipe in your garden. Have you ever turned on the hose pipe, pointed it low and then slowly lifted it up. You will remember the water reaches an optimum distance depending on the speed of the water and how high you lift the hose up. If the trajectory is too low the water does not travel very far, but upon raising the height the water travels further until you lift it too high and then the water just comes straight back down again. This is the same with your drives. The optimum trajectory coupled with club head speed gives you the best distance. Another factor that affects distance if the clubface is left open at impact. Someone who does that will never hit the ball as far as they want to. Come and have a FREE check up to see if you have the correct loft on your driver. If you haven't you are making the game harder than it should be.
