Greetings from Maurice Campbell

How many of you practice your golf? This time of year is difficult for many people who work to find time to practice, but just by spending a few minutes on your weaker areas can dramatically improve your score. First off you need to start keeping statistics on your game. Simple statistics could be how many putts you have, how many fairways you hit, how many greens you hit in regulation and how many up and downs you have. Once you have found your weaker area you need to set about improving it. If it is your putting then you perform exercises to improve it. If your distance judging ability is poor then you need to start practicing long putts on the practice putting green. If you do this consistently then your distance judging will improve. One of the many benefits of being a member of Leighton Buzzard Golf Club is the ability to practice on the putting green, the pitching area and the practice fairway for free.

It is peaceful and normally not too busy unlike the video I have for you this week (above.) The video is from an American driving range and you won't believe what happens. Unfortunately you will have to get past an advert which lasts approximately 20 seconds and then you can see the video.

Who is the best ball striker you know?

The reason I ask is that I just read an article that voted Henrik Stenson as the best ball striker on the PGA Tour. Stenson was second in total driving and eigth in greens in regulation which earned him the top spot. The best ball striker I have ever played with was Michael Campbell. In New Zealand I played many times with him in events and played against him in matchplay. The first time I ever played golf with him was when I was 14 years old. Every year the New Zealand Golf Association used to have the top twenty juniors attend a golf camp in January, which is summer down south. It was the first time I was picked to attend and my first match was against Michael. I lost 6 & 5 and I was only one over par. He destroyed me, but it is something I will never forget because he was and is a great ball striker. It would be the first of many times I would play golf with him over the years. I will never forget how he would thump into the turf at impact. All good ball strikers make that thump into the turf. They all hit down into the ground and take a divot. Please remember the divot happens after the ball and not before it. If the divot happens before the ball it will go absolutely nowhere and this time of year you will be covered in mud. Watch my video that talks about hitting down and it will help you to do what all good ball strikers do and that is compress that golf ball.
