Marking position of balls during plaf of a hole
A question that some amateur golfers seem to have a problem with is which rules situations require the position of a ball to be marked and which do not?

An easy rule of thumb to assist you with this question is that when the ball is to be replaced at the same spot it was lifted from, it must be marked before it is touched.

Good golfing!

A man who has been stranded on a desert island all alone for 10 years sees a speck on the horizon. "It's too small to be a ship," he thinks to himself. As the speck gets closer, he rules out the possibility of it being a small boat, then a raft.

Suddenly, a gorgeous blonde woman emerges from the surf wearing a wet suit and scuba gear. She approaches the stunned man and asks, "How long has it been since you've had a cigarette?"

"Ten years!" he says.

She unzips a waterproof pocket on her left sleeve and pulls out a pack of fresh cigarettes. He takes one, lights it, takes a long drag, and says, "Man, is that ever good!"

Then she asks him, "How long has it been since you've had a sip of bourbon?"

Trembling, he replies, "Ten years!"

She unzips a waterproof pocket on her right sleeve, pulls out a flask, and gives it to him. He opens it, takes a long swig, and says, "That's fantastic!"

Then she starts slowly unzipping the long zipper down the front of her suit, looks at him seductively, and asks, "And how long has it been since you've played around?"

The man, with tears in his eyes, replies, "Don't tell me you've got golf clubs in there!"





Please remember to fill your divots & repair your pitch marks!

 
We’re really pleased that most of the golfers who responded to our Brand, Price or Fit survey (which is the most important priority when purchasing irons) thought that getting ‘Fit’ for the correct technology and configuration (shaft type, shaft flex, shaft length, lie angle, swingweight, grip size) was the most important priority.

 
 Really?

Two golfers are 150 yards from the green; which one needs the most help
from their equipment?

Which one would be able to use equipment that wasn’t perfectly matched to their size and swing?
 
 
We’re passionate about you enjoying your golf. Hitting better golf shots more often makes a big difference. If you’re thinking of improving your approach shots, before you drag something off the shelf, let’s start the conversation about your golf game, your swing, your potential for improvement. Let’s match equipment to your game to get the best result.

A lot of what you read about golf is entrenched in ‘grip, stance, posture’ and ‘swing plane, swing path’. Important, but not exciting.

How about having a conversation about what happens in your golf game? There are particularly parts of the game that have a huge impact on enjoyment for most of us, and performance for the very best:
 
 
Put the ball in play, find the green consistently from the 50-yard range, manage a longer putt so that you’re not left with a knee-trembler, or sink an opportunity from 15 feet and you’re not walking off the green, you’re floating. It’s a great feeling.
 
Why not book an assessment with us? We’ll examine your comfort with these basic skills (Driving, Pitching & Chipping, and Putting) and together with you we’ll work out what the quickest route to more fun and enjoyment is for you. Come and chat to us or
