There were some tricky scoring conditions last weekend when the men's March Medal took place on Saturday. Andy Vale though breezed round to win with a nett 65, ahead of Ben Proud and Paul Ellam who both scored nett 68. Only 8 players out of 112 managed to break par which may suggest that playing off the White tees for the first time this season was a bit of a shock to the system.
The Seniors Section played their first trophy of the year on Wednesday, the Spencer Cup. This was won by Alec Jones with 38pts, Brian Carter was second with 37pts and Martin Broadley came third on countback from Geoff Hawkins, both scored 35pts.
Staying with the Seniors Section, Denis Leitch and Paul Johnson beat Tom Davis and Keith Rogers to win the B.K. Smith Winter Knockout Cup. Apparently a fiercely fought battle being decided on the 18th green.
The importance of getting the correct shaft for you
Here are 3 things that need to be recognised before getting the correct shaft.
There is no standard for shaft flex across manufacturers. A test was carried out with 6 regular shafts from different companies and there was 4 different flexes.
You can't simply match swing speed to shaft flex. How you start your downswing is more important, you might have a fast speed but a smooth transition.
Your driver shaft might affect the amount of spin on the ball. Most golfers start to unhinge their wrists early in the downswing, so the chances of the shaft impacting on spin is small.
Please feel free to come into the shop to discuss this with us, or click here to book an appointment with us to use our FlightScope and see if your shafts suit your swing.
