    A Golf Challenge Really Worth Supporting

    April 28th, 2015

    When we challenge ourselves at golf, we often think about improving our scores, hitting the ball further and more accurately, sinking more putts. Well now there’s a different challenge available and it is one you could be a part of and in doing so, help the lives of millions of cancer sufferers that much easier.

    It is called the Longest Day Golf Challenge and in 2014, golfers who participated in the challenge raised £740,000 for the MacMillan Cancer Support charity who run the event.

    Mastering the game within a game: A successful guide to putting from the Masters

    April 21st, 2015

    How much time to do you devote to practising your putting? Be honest. It’s probably nowhere near the amount of time you’ll spend at the range thrashing your driver and irons.

    That’s a shame because most of the shots you’ll take in any round, will be with the shortest club in your bag and to neglect it, is in effect doing the same to a third or more of your golf game.

    The key differences between winter and summer golf

    April 14th, 2015

    For most amateur golfers, dealing with a golf course can be a mighty struggle. Holes that have been designed to trip you up combined with those dreaded long par fours can see an amateur’s blood pressure rise and a few 8, 9 or even more written on their cards.

    Courses on their own can be mightily tough to get your head around but then you have to factor in the weather and the simple fact of the matter is, change the weather and you change the golf course.

    Fred Couples, Corey Pavin, Lucas Glover and Tommy Gainey (below). Four golfers and each of them is part of a somewhat select and unusual club.

    There’s always something to enjoy in a game of golf. Usually it is because of a players excellence or brilliance that we are brought to our feet to applaud, but occasionally the game gives us some other moments that we won’t forget.

    Beating Bunker Blindness

    December 12th, 2014

    For the amateur golfer who plays of a high handicap, few prospects in the game of golf offer them more dread than a typical bunker shot.

    Of course, that shot at the first tee, particularly if there is a crowd watching, is always likely to be the biggest nerve jangler of the round – The only exception being unless you have a putt to win your monthly medal.

     

    But during the course of a typical round nothing makes the heart sink than seeing your tee shot or approach plop into the sandy hell of a greenside bunker.
