Golf tip of the week


Bunker play can be a beach


Choke in the sand

In a fairway bunker, be careful when you dig your feet into the sand. Digging your feet two inches into the sand effectively lengthens the club by two inches. The tendency here is to hit the sand first, a no-no when you need to pick it clean. Make sure you choke down the same amount.

Alternative sand play

If you skull your sand shots using the standard bunker technique, try this method. Open your body to the target line more than normal and position the golf ball in the middle of your stance. Now, make sure that the majority of your weight is set and remains on your back foot (the opposite of the normal technique) all the way through the swing. This ensures that you'll hit the sand first and guard against catching the ball thin.
 

If you struggle to get out of the bunker or if you want to become a master of the sand, contact us to book a lesson.

Centre of Gravity (CoG) matters

 
CoG can impact tee shot distance by 20+ metres
 
Below are two drivers with exactly the same loft. Let’s assume they also have an identical shaft and shaft length.
 

 
The white DOT marks the CoG
The white line through the centre of each driver represents the neutral axis. Almost all drivers have a CoG that is above this line. Both the distance above, and how forward or back the CoG is, will impact on the angle the ball actually launches, the amount of spin on the ball, and the amount of MOI (forgiveness the driver has).

The driver on the left will go farther for a slower swing speed golfer as it will launch higher and with more spin. The driver on the right will go farther for a more aggressive golfer with a faster swing speed because it will launch a little lower and spin a lot less.
 
The difference between CoG locations in drivers can be measured in millimetres, but the difference in distance can be measured in tens of metres.
 
CoG affects the launch conditions (angle and spin) and that significantly impacts on how far your ball will travel.

 
Fix your millimetres and metres
 
Get every metre off the tee your potential deserves. Come and have a tee shot assessment and let's see how we can add 20, 30 and even more metres to your tee shots.

A better life for them

 
You didn’t grow up like this
 
Does the way children grow up today worry you? How radically different is their childhood and teens to that of just 20 years ago?
 
 
Children have to be digitally literate, but they also need to invest in movement and athletic ability, their health and well-being, and their interpersonal skills.
 
 

 
Let us add balance to their lives
Have your child enroll into one of our group sessions to learn to play golf, and we’ll have them outdoors, interacting, learning new skills, and having a whole stack of fun they can take out onto the golf course. They won’t stop playing computer games, but for a couple of hours each time we’ll have them off the phone, out from in front of the screen, engaging in fun activity.
