Membership News

Another great session from Gary Gant at Chestnut!  We had 11 participants and he gave each one individual attention.  Here is a summary of his tips:

 He started with some good reminders on Pace of Play:

i)                    Don’t worry about anyone else; others aren’t paying attention to what you are doing... Everyone hits bad shots... Just keep up w/ the group in front of you

iv)                Don’t use a ball you can’t afford J … look for less than 5 min

v)                  Don’t be afraid to pick up if you have hit your max strokes (maybe then drop on the green & putt)

Next up was the air game on the range (basically all shots other than chipping & putting).  Here are his top tips

·         Grip:  put your left thumb in the crease of your right hand (opposite for lefties) and grip it loosely --- if you are not sure, take a club into the clubhouse & he'll be happy to adjust this for you!

·         Stance:  shoulder width apart

·         Shoulder to Shoulder:  swing the club up back over your right shoulder and finish through over your left shoulder (opposite for lefties).

·         Balance:  this is probably the thing he emphasized the most. Throughout your swing and especially as you finish, you must have your balance (pose at the end facing your target)

 We wrapped up w/ the ground game (chipping).  This technique can be used for a large range of chipping distances - the basics are the same, just change the length of the swing:

·         Put the ball in the middle of your stance

·         Lean like crazy (towards the green) - your weight should be mostly on the foot closest to the green 

·         Position your hands over your front knee

·        Keep your wrists/arms stiff (don't 'flip it'; stiff as can be)

Many thanks to Gary for his support of EWGA!
