Up & down!

If you stand straight up and down and turn your shoulders they will move on a flat plane. When you take your stance and your spine is tilted at the waist your shoulders should now swing more up and down. A lot of amateurs tend to continue swinging on a flat plane even though they are bent over at the waist. This can cause all sorts of problems most commonly a throwing of your right shoulder out toward the target line and of course causing the club to come over the top. Have a look at this great tip.

If you want to improve your game, give us a call on 95173471 and make an appointment for a lesson with our PGA David.

Wedges, not stripes.

Tiger woods recently added the latest TaylorMade MG3 wedges to his kit. Believe it or not, Tiger actually changes his wedges for new ones every week he plays. “I like having fresh wedges pretty much every week I play because of spin,” he says. “I spend so much time chipping that I wear out the grooves. If they lose a little bit of friction, that’s a little bit of spin I’ve lost. I can gain that back by having new wedges.” If you want maximum spin then you should try out the same wedges a 15 time major champion uses. Golf Traders have competitive prices on a great selection of the latest Milled Grind 3 wedges from TaylorMade.


The PGA tour held the Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. After persistent rain delays pushed the final 26 holes into Monday, Cameron Smith (-13) revelled in the situation and closed out his third round still trailing by two. A quick break and a snack was just what the doctor ordered and the 28 year old Australian opened his final round with four birdies in a row eventually closing with a bogey on the final hole for a 66 and his fifth title on tour. Having his family there was worth way more than the millions in prize money or the five year exemption on tour. See some highlights here. Just missing a birdie chip on the final hole after being in the mix all day, overnight leader Anirban Lahiri (-12) from India had to settle for solo second. England's Paul Casey (-11) was also in with a chance but his putts wouldn't fall and he was alone in third place followed by Kevin Kisner (-10) and fellow American Keegan Bradley (-9). The only other Aussie to make the weekend cut was Lucas Herbert (+7).


The European tour played the MyGolfLife Open at the Pecanwood G&CC in Hartbeespoort, South Africa. Starting the final day two shots off the lead, Pablo Larrazábal (-22) dueled all day and ended up in a playoff with fellow Spaniard Adri Arnaus and England's Jordan Smith. After a birdie on the second extra hole, 38 year old Larrazabal had claimed his sixth DP World title. Alone in fourth place was home favourite George Coetzee (-21) followed by countryman Richard Sterne (-20). Sharing sixth place were overnight leader Hennie du Plessis (-19) from South Africa, Spaniard Nacho Elvira and England's Ross Fisher. Australians in the field were Jason Scrivener (-7) and Maverick Antcliff (-5).


The LPGA tour held the 15th running of the Honda LPGA Thailand at the Siam Country Club Old Course in Pattaya. After finishing on 26 under and jointly setting a new tournament record, Nanna Koerstz Madsen and China’s Xiyu Lin headed back out for extra holes. On the first extra hole Lin missed her eagle chip by and inch and they both birdied. on the next hole, 27 year old Madsen drained a 10 footer for eagle and became the first player from Denmark to win on the LPGA tour. Alone in third place was Frenchwoman Celine Boutier (-25) followed by Canada's Brooke Henderson (-23) who shared fourth place along with Amy Yang from Korea. Aussie girls in the exclusive field were Minjee Lee (-19), Su Oh (-17) and Hannah Green (-16).


The Australasian tour and the WPGA jointly played the inaugural TPS Hunter Valley at the Oaks Cypress Lakes Resort in Pokolbin. After a brilliant 62 on Saturday, Aaron Pike (-8) was three shots ahead at the start of the final day. However, by the end of the round, 22 year old New Zealander Momoka Kobori (-8) had one hand on the trophy but she missed a three foot putt on the final hole and a sudden death playoff ensued. After both players had pars on the first two extra holes it was the 36 year old Pike who nailed his approach to 2 feet on the next to win with a birdie. See some final round highlights here. Sharing third place were Lawry Flynn (-5), Ben Wharton, Brad Kennedy and Cassie Porter. Louis Dobbelaar (-) was solo seventh. The only other girls in the field were Kelsey Bennett (-2) and Amelia Mehmet Grohn (+3).


The Australian Legends tour held the Moama Masters at the Rich River GC on the East Course. Coming off a win earlier in the week, Glenn Joyner (-11) was never threatened after rounds of 66 and 67 to do it again against the strongest field of the year. Defending Order of Merit champion Andre Stolz (-8) was alone in second followed by Andrew Welsford (-7). Tied for fourth place were Mike Harwood (-6), Simon Tooman David McKenzie. With the next few weeks being postponed due to the recent rain, our travelling pro David Fearns (+1) will have some time to work on his game.
