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

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 right Grind adds versatility to your game making it easier to play various greenside shots.
Especially on the wedges you use around the green, spend time getting the right ‘Grind’ and ‘Bounce’.


Manufacturers have introduced two main ‘Grinds’ to make greenside shots easier:
 
 
 

The right grind on a Wedge that supports the way you’re likely to use that Wedge, will make shot-making easier.
You might use different Wedges in different ways, so it’s not one Grind fits all. Next time you’re looking at Wedges,
make sure you get fitted.
 
 
 
We’re two weeks in to some simple advice on how to improve your
score using the Par 3 holes. They’re an opportunity for everyone.
Removing risk helps.

Simple Tip #3
Where’s the easiest and safest target? Before you even look for the flag,
find the point on the green that gives you the largest room for error.

 
In this example, even going over the back of the target area marked will leave
you a chip and putt for a 3, so you’re looking at a 4 at worst. Go at the flag and the
consequences of a miss could be much greater. Even if you fly the flag and land in the bunker,
you’re then faced with a bunker shot back towards water. Going at the flag is a 2 or bust!
 

You’ll be faced with a course management challenge on all approach shots,
not just Par 3’s. Try playing a round where you take a ‘safety first’ approach to every shot.
Check out your score. Is it an improvement if you play within yourself?
Course management is an important part of your game; if you’d be interested
in an accompanied round to help with your course management,
 
 
Here's to great golf!
