Leighton Buzzard Golf Club Golf Director
|Greetings from Maurice Campbell|
|Leighton Buzzard Golf Club - Golf Director|
The last few days have been absolutely stunning, hot and sunny, temperatures reaching 32 degrees and we're treated to what it must be like playing golf in the hot and humid Far East. For some it is too hot and they head for the nearest air conditioned place. Others feel like they can swing the club with more freedom as their joints and muscles are looser due to the warmth.
This shows us that if you are able to get to the golf course a little earlier so you can hit a few shots before your game you will benefit from looser more flexible muscles enabling you to swing the club a little easier from the start, rather than spend the first four holes creaking and groaning trying to find some rhythm.
On the subject of rhythm pre shot routines are an all important part of playing good golf. The top players take pretty much the same time on every shot once their club has been selected. They have different routines but have found one that suits them the best. Whether it's getting a visualisation of the shot they want to hit then setting up to the ball, have a couple of waggles of the club then they start their swing, they do this on all shots. Some might have three practice swings others no practice swing at all, it is all down to the individual, but it keeps them in a constant routine before every shot and their rhythm stays fairly constant.

The June Monthly Medal was played in lovely warm weather and Phil Eddy was hot with his scoring, managing to go round in nett 63 winning by 3 shots from Teddy Jones, nett 66, with Paul Jarman and Jeff Beaseley sharing third place with nett 67.
We are now taking entries for the Leighton Buzzard Pro-Am. It is taking place on Wednesday 19th August. With the golf course well and truly moving forward it is a great opportunity to compete with a Professional in a day where you play for some fantastic prizes.
It is a comfortable format with the two best scores out of four counting and you get to play with some of the best PGA Professionals in the golfing in the area. Our goal is to get to 40 teams this year and we require your support to do this. If you would like to enter a team please click here to register your interest.
It truly is a great day at the Club.
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.
There are a limited number of free half hour appointments available so please contact us in the Pro Shop to book your place if you are interested as soon as possible.
