Introducing The New Scotty Cameron Futura X5 Putters

The Scotty Cameron Futura X line of high performance, high MOI mallets are designed with modern contours and futuristic technology. In golf shops now, the new Futura X5 and Futura X5R wing back designs feature a hollow sole plate and thicker face for a solid, forgiving feel with vertical and horizontal sight lines to aid alignment.

Come and see us in the Pro Shop to find out more.

Poppy Appeal Classic

Sixty Three players entered this popular competition on Wednesday, 5 November and together with the Ladies event, held on Tuesday the 4th, a total of £350.40 was raised for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal. Frank McDonald wishes to express his thanks to all those Ladies and Gents who participated in their events. Special thanks are also due to Anne Reynolds and Eileen Fowler for conducting early morning reception duties (this is never an easy task) and to the Pro shop staff who followed on by managing entries to the competition for the rest of the day.

With a score of 40 Stableford points, James Goodfellow was the winner of the mens event, while Sue Gunter finished at the top of the Ladies competition. Congratulations to both players who will receive a commemorative medal on Trophy Night.


Putting drill

A common fault with breaking putts is that players don't look at the break as their eyes get attracted to the hole. Here is an exercise that will make you adjust your aim and alignment to the direction the ball must start, something which is important on greens like ours.

Find a putt on one of the practice greens that gives you a breaking putt and place a ball about 20 feet away. Visualise the line the ball will break and place 10 balls on that line, starting from 6 inches away from the cup and each successive ball 18 inches further back. Knock the first putt in then putt each successive ball over the spot where the last ball lay with a speed that will let the ball drop in the cup.

On the last putt, examine where the other balls lay to decide whether the line is good and try to make the final putt. This will teach you how to read breaks and give you better judgement with the combination of speed and direction.

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...
