ON THE COURSE WITH TEE PEG

Welcome all to the new golf section newsletter.

A new season is upon us yet again. During the winter months’ there have been coming and goings, the most notable of these being Scott Lowson.

As most of you are aware, Scott has decided to hang up his pen and pick up his clubs instead and spend more time on the course. He hasn’t left us, he will still be popping his head around the corner, of which I am sure of.

The new man with the reigns is Chris Johns from the Uxbridge centre. I am sure you will all wish him well as it is a big task to take on. He has a wealth of experience within the golfing fraternity, as at one time he was a teaching pro in Italy (Perugia), Germany (VW Bockendorf), Spain (Los Aqueros) and of course in good old blighty. He also qualified as a Secretary at Windermere Golf Club in 1988. I feel sure with his guidance, that Middlesex can improve in what is already there and can become a force within the golfing calendar once more.

So far this season Chris has booked our first away day for Wednesday 31st May 2017 at Thorney Park Golf Club near Iver, Bucks (approx. 3 miles from Uxbridge).

Arrival time will be from 09.30 with the opportunity to have a “bash” at the teaching pro’s indoor Academy (as seen on Sky TV). So turn up early and relax. This will be followed by bacon roll & coffee.

The first tee time has been booked from 10.30, with evening meal being a rolling roast beef carvery with a pudding to finish with. Dress is casual and very relaxed. There will be a limited amount of buggies available, so first come first served. These can be booked in advance through Chris Johns. The cost of the day is £45.00.

Please keep reading the newsletter for future venues.

“Tee Peg’s Tip”

Putting – I quite often see players struggle to have a good game purely down to their putting techniques. After lining up their putt, instead of staying perfectly still with their head over the ball they start to fidget because they have over-thought the shot and stood there too long, this causes anxiety to creep in and invariably they hit the ball left of target (left wrist breaking). So,

• Stand tall over your putt
• Keep your eye on the ball with your head very still
• Don’t wait so long
• Keep a smooth stroke
• Do not de-accelerate
• If you miss the hole time and time again on the left, you have a problem with breaking your left wrist
• On practising start 6 inches away from the hole and move back 6 inches at a time until you are 3 foot away. If you miss a putt go back and start again from 6 inches away. (Remember to keep your wrist solid)


If you have any questions for “Tee Peg” please forward them to Chris Johns who will make sure they get passed over.

Until the next time – HAPPY GOLFING
