Under Pressure

This is a slightly self absorbed post, I must apologise, but my thoughts may help you in the way you approach competition golf one day, who knows. So I recently played in a Pro Am at Flackwell Heath. Starting Double, Par, Quad was not the best of starts. +6 through 3 holes. I had aContinue reading “Under Pressure”

Wedges – A Buyers Guide

So when it comes to wedges there’s a lot to learn and consider. You can go for every degree gap or you can space it out to give fewer wedges and more woods. The starting point for me it is to look at the irons in your golf bag. You may have irons down toContinue reading “Wedges – A Buyers Guide”

Scratch That Itch

How might a scratch player set up their golf bag? For me, the emphasis is on the wedges first. Good loft gaps to create consistent yardage gaps at the bottom end of the bag. Also not often will you see two clubs create the same yardage anywhere in the bag. If there is is, itContinue reading “Scratch That Itch”

The Shaft Experiment

6 Driver Shafts. 1 Driver Head. When all shafts are the same flex…. How far apart could they possibly be? Many golfers stick to one flex of shaft based on their swing speed and previous successes, but there could be a little more to it than that. Rick Shiels did an interesting video where heContinue reading “The Shaft Experiment”

With a Pinch of Salt

So everybody learns differently. Especially with motor skills and technique based activities like sports. Visual, phonetic and kinesthetic. See it, yell it, do it. In addition to that, some are at a different stages of development to others, beginner through to Tour Player. The world now has many back garden videos telling you how toContinue reading “With a Pinch of Salt”

How did you start playing golf?

How did you start playing golf? and how would you advise someone to take up the game? For me, it was my Dad that played years before I was born. His Grandad got him in to it by swinging broomsticks in the garden and that connection with the game transferred down to me. And IContinue reading “How did you start playing golf?”
