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

Hello and welcome to this weeks newsletter.

Last week saw the end of a busy fortnight at the club culminating in the Pro am and men's guest day.

As like last year, the Pro am was a fantastic event. Kieran and John did a great job in organising the tournament ensuring that the prize table is second to none in the region. The day had a refreshing difference from last year and not just with the weather, as the fist two teams were mainly made up of women!

Showing the men how to do it in first place was La Verne Frost, Deborah Bowler and Justine Voss with their Professional Chase Davis. They had a total of 129 (-15) which gave them a one shot lead from Janina Jones, Linda Kelsey, Nick Reed and team Professional Charlie Luther. The two Professionals from these teams also tied for 1st place in the Pro's event with a 5 under par 67.


As for Aaron and myself, it's a case of what could have been. I was going along steadily until finding some roots near the green on the 3rd my 12th hole, should've taken a drop, didn't, regretted it and patted the ball round the next five holes with a very sore wrist.

As for my team, what can I say, Gareth asked me to think of a couple of sentences to sum them up to. After 5 minutes of silence he concluded that I had been brought up properly in that if you have nothing nice to say, then don't say anything at all. .

Having said that, I had a thoroughly enjoyable day and all three were good fun to play with. We had enough birdies and nett birdies to win it but kept on giving shots back as soon as we picked them up to finish a couple under par.

What is the weak point of your game? Driving? Short putting? No doubt you have an answer. But how do you know?

For most club golfers, their answer will be based on a hunch. But ask a tour pro the same question and he can back his answer up with cold, hard figures.

Stat gathering may not sound the most exciting exercise, but it can have a very positive effect on your game. Truly know your strengths and weaknesses and you can start to work on the parts of your game that need it most. After all, as Lee Trevino said, golf is about making your worst shot better.

We'll be happy to discuss your best approach to game analysis. But for a simple start, chart your performance on par 3s, 4s and 5s for the next month. Compare the results to find out which type of your hole is weakest. Once you know that, you can begin to target your practice accordingly. And that's really going to speed up your progress.

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...
