Greetings from Rob McNicholas
Saffron Walden Golf Club - PGA Golf Professional

Hello and welcome to this weeks newsletter. I hope you all managed to catch some of the golf from the weekend. Personally I thought it was a fantastic Open, it had a bit of everything; from a great new champion to Tigers return, a final day charge from Sergio and a course that offered plenty of birdies for those playing well. I've already had requests for the next Lemons class to teach them to play like Rory. That's certain to be a test to see how strong my powers are!

The next two weeks will be a busy period at the club. This weekend the club championship is being held followed by the Pro Am next Friday. The greens, I'm sure, will be faster than they have been over the past month and the course should start to firm up if the rain stays away.

Good luck to all those competing over the weekend and I look forward to seeing you on Sunday for the climax of the championships.

Adams Pro DHy - #1 Hybrid at Hoylake

Modeled on the highly successful design of the SUPER DHy, one of the most popular clubs on Tour in 2013. A true long iron replacement uniquely designed for players who prefer a low spinning, penetrating ball flight.

The Pro DHy comes with an Aldila Tour Blue shaft as standard and is available in Regular, Stiff and X-Stiff. Left hand options are also available.

Lofts available for the Pro DHy are 18°, 21°, and 24°

Come and see us in store for more information, or click here to request your fitting slot.

Here is a simple warm up exercise to cure a number of issues in particular to stop excessive lateral movement/swaying.

The golf swing is 3 dimensional. It moves up and down, side to side and there has to be rotation. Most people can manage the first two movements but tend to over do the side to side therefore making it difficult to rotate. Standing with the feet together making half or three quarter swings is a great exercise to get people turning round a constant axis and stop swaying.

There is an tried and tested formula in coaching that control and balance equals timing, and the feet together drill will help you achieve this by creating better rhythm and motion which will improve the quality of your ball striking.

Club News
Two common faults I often see with a driver set up when teaching are; weight too left sided , and open shoulder alignment. These are both caused by the alteration with the ball position for the driver. As it's moved left in the stance for a right handed player, the weight tends to go with it, and the shoulders open at the same time.Read more...
