THE COURSE WITH TEE PEG
all to the new golf section newsletter.
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
keep reading the newsletter for future venues.
– 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
the next time – HAPPY GOLFING
