Golf is our favourite game

Eastlake Junior Golfers are encouraged to get out to the Australian Open taking place this week at the picturesque Australian Golf Club, just across the road. Marco Jerrich, Met Sergio, Louie and Paul Casey, as well as Ruben Clarke attended a clinic  put together by Golf Australia. A couple of up-and-coming golfing superstars, David Micheluzzi and Zach Murray, were also at the clinic. My little girl, Frankie, even got to meet Rugby League legend – Braith Anasta. In other news, some of our Juniors have been selected to play their hearts out in the Guard of Honour, happening on Sunday afternoon, for the winner of the tournament. On a final note – we have a bunch of members manning the 17th hole, so make sure you say g’day.

Fight the Fight, Find the Cure

Finding a cure is our goal, spreading awareness plays a role

In December, I’m taking on The Longest Day - the ultimate golfing challenge. I’ll be testing my skill, strength and stamina by playing 4 rounds of golf in a single day to support Cancer Council and raise funds for those affected by cancer.

Please sponsor me and support my efforts to give back and change lives.

Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world, with two in three Australians diagnosed with skin cancer by the age of 70, and I want to do something to help change this!

Simply click the link below to make a donation to my page.

Cancer Council is a community funded organisation, working in local communities to help support people as they navigate their cancer journey.

Their work is really important, and I want to do what I can to help. But there is only so much I can do on my own. You can help too, by donating to my page. Any amount you can give makes a difference! You can also support me by encouraging others to get involved, too. Please email the link to my page to your friends and family, or share it on social media.

Thank you so much for your support – it is truly appreciated.

What matters most to you?

Last week we asked if you could answer one question. With the ability to be entirely anonymous. We wanted to know how you viewed your position on a simple continuum. Where do you see yourself on your golfing journey?
At one end there’s space for the person who sees golf totally as a competitive sport, and on the other end there’s those that see it as a social and recreational activity. We’re asking golfers to position themselves. Next month we’ll publish a SUMMARY of how our community of golfers see the game.

If you haven’t already done so
So, if haven’t given a response then please follow the link below. It’s a very short and very private survey – no personal details required – so go on

Think about your golf

The second statistic we want you to collect over 4 rounds, is your average score on Par 3s that are within iron shot range. If you missed last week’s article, and the first statistic click here.

If you’re often under 90 but struggle to get below 85 regularly, then there’s a good chance that becoming consistent on the Par 3s will get you there.
Two 3s and two 4s on your card and you’re doing well. Three 3s and provided your steady elsewhere  then you’re likely to be below 85.

Improvements you can make that pay off on any approach shot:
If we can make sure your rotation and ball striking is led by your large muscles and not your hands, then we can improve your consistency of contact and accuracy of result. There’re a number of consistent club and shot selection errors we see from less experienced or skilled golfers that often cost them a stroke per Par 3. It’s an easy fix. 
“Improving your ball striking consistency, club selection, and shot selection on Par 3s will have a big impact on your approach shot performance on every hole.”
