The weather can't seem to make up its mind at the moment, one day warm the next five cool. The England cricket team got some much needed practice in during this time and then beat New Zealand by using the all or nothing technique. This technique can be good for golf also. Often when golfers are in a friendly fourball they tend to play with a certain amount of freedom in their swing and they go for the shot in hand without too many negative thoughts. However when they put a scorecard in their hand and their score matters a whole new mental outlook seems to take place. All of a sudden they are thinking, don't hit it into trouble as it will wreck the score, negative thoughts. So next time you tee up in a competition try to relax and find the freedom to swing the club and go for the shot you want to hit rather than trying not to hit the one that will go into trouble.
The June Monthly Stableford was won by Alex Sandham with 40pts, close second were Shaun Cavanagh and Steve Leng with 39pts and John Tarbox came in with 38pts. Again only 8 players managed to better 36pts. With the fairways being shaped and the greens a little quicker scoring is obviously trickier so well played to all who scored 36pts and above.
On Thursday 9th July between 2pm and 6pm we are holding a PING Fitting Day where you can try out all their latest equipment and find out which combination of clubhead, shaft and grip suits you most.
