A scramble event in tribute to friend and member, Paul Picha.

The same format and rules as any of the Monthly Friday Scrambles.

Everyone is invited.
There will be a $7.00 charge for the cart fee but no green fees.
Outstanding prizes included!

Many of you played with Paul at Oak Knoll and knew of his gentle manner and love for golf. Paul did not want anything done upon his death, but we thought this would be a good way to remember him as he always played in, and enjoyed the Monthly Friday Scrambles.
 


The ball room filled up quickly for the Oak Knoll Country Club/Hammond Art Guild's “First Anniversary Art Show Opening Reception”.

If you missed the opening night, everyone is invited to see the show Tuesdays through Sundays from 9am -5pm or after your golf game.

See the show with friends and stay for lunch. The show continues through Sunday Oct 21st. Free and open to the public.




...And not just in our Art Show!

Managing tricky greenside shots becomes a lot easier if your Grind is designed for the way you play the shot.
‘Grinds’ are especially important on the Wedges you use for these shots; usually from 54º to 64º Wedges.
 
 
It can do all that, by allowing the bounce and leading edge to work effectively to support the way you hold the
clubhead at address and through impact. What’s important is having the right Grind for the way
you hold the Wedge on a particular shot.
 

Are you someone that LACKS CONFIDENCE when faced with tricky greenside shots?
Maybe your equipment is working against you.
 

 
We’re trying to help you make more 3’s on the Par 3’s.
Better decision-making is going to improve your scores.
 
 
Despite the increased amount of GPS data available, regular and inexperienced golfers still,
on the majority of occasions, come up short.

Even when a golfer knows the “yardage” on each of their clubs,
their misses are mostly short.



Simple Tip #2
Why are you expecting the perfect golf shot? What is your level of consistency? 
 
 
 If there’s no trouble behind
the green, then ignore the
distance to the flag, and pick a
club that, when struck well,
will get you to the back of
the green. That way a less
than perfect ball strike has
a chance of getting to
the green. Rarely do even
good ball strikers
make perfect contact.
 

Where are the majority of your misses on all approach shots?
Would aiming for the back of the green (assuming no trouble behind the hole)
be a course management strategy that would improve your whole round?
Improving your performance on Par 3’s will probably increase your enjoyment
throughout the round. Think about improvement. If we can help,
 
 

Here's to great golf!
