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

Hello and welcome to this week's newsletter where I'm pleased to say that the course has been fully open all week.

Last Sunday saw the Junior Academy team in their first practice match of the season against the Perse School Cambridge. The match was played in great spirit and I received an email this week complimenting Saffron Walden on the condition of the course, our hospitality, the attitude of the boys involved and the way that they conducted themselves on the course. The Saffron Walden team showed less hospitality on the course beating their opponents 5-0. Christie Woosey led the way with a 2 and 1 victory in the opening singles match and the remaining 4 pairs matches were won by the score 3 and 2.

We will be looking to play them again before the season starts in April to sharpen up on our foursomes and greensomes play. Well done to all those involved.

Over the next few weeks as we get back onto main greens I will be going through a few exercises to improve your short game. These drills only take a few minutes and I'm a great believer that you only have to practice the correct things for 5 -10 minutes a day to see a big improvement to your game. A lot of these drills can be done at home.

One handed putting drill

To get the feeling of swinging and releasing the putter head try practicing using the right hand only. Done correctly this will lead to a true sense of rolling the ball and not guiding the outer to the target. For those using a non-face balanced putter you will notice that the club wants to ark on the way back and through impact rather than straight up and down the line.

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...
