Congratulations to Amelia Williams on winning the Boyle Cup on Saturday. Amelia carded a gross score of 84 and a nett score of 66 to win by 2 shots from Dave Burden who's round of 68 included a hole in one at the 7th using his new fitted Callaway Driver! Craig Woodman, another talented youngster finished 3rd with a nett score of 69.
Amelia capped off a great weekend by representing the Hampshire Girls County Team and winning her match 3&1!
Amelia has been working very hard at her game over the winter months with Chris, and her hard work is certainly paying off! Her handicap has now been cut 3 shots to 12, and I'm sure there will be a lot more to come from her this season and in the future.
It is great to see two of Bramshaw's development squad finishing in the top 3 places in such a major competition.
May Day Flag
Ted Duff won this year's competition. On the 19th hole only ½" short of the hole, this is a great win early in the season for Ted as his golf has been restricted by working away. One thing Ted knew was that his putting was the weakest part of his game and preventing him from scoring better, so in March he booked a putting assessment and with a few alterations and a change of putter (as his did not suit the stroke he makes) he is now seeing the improvement.
The runner up was Mark Bolton finishing 12 feet from the 19th hole. Mark also took a putting lesson last year and has seen more consistency in his putting.
Putter Fitting and Demo Day
This Saturday 10th May is our putter fitting and demo day 11am -3pm (weather permitting). Bring along your putter and we'll see if the putter you are using is the correct length, has the correct grip size and the right hang to suit your stroke. With these key things in place I can help you improve your putting skills.
Your lie reveals the truth
We recently gave a lesson to a mid-handicapper who just could not stop his irons going left. The shot had been plaguing him for 18 months. He was aware that period coincided with using his latest set of clubs, bought off the shelf; but like many, he didn't want to be a bad workman blaming his tools.
We'd never argue against the importance of sound technique; but in this case, the solution was gear-related. This golfer's lie angles - the angle between the sole of the club and its shaft - were too upright. At address the club's toe was in the air, and at impact the heel was catching the ground, twisting the face shut. Not only this - as the toe rises, clubface loft makes the face aim further left. A simple lie adjustment later, his pull instantly vanished.
It can be hard to tell whether your shot pattern is rooted in equipment or swing issues, but our expertise in both allows us to diagnose the problem straight away. If our friend had done that, he'd have save himself 18 months of pain. We're here to make sure you don't suffer the same fate. Click here to contact us about your poor shots.
