Leighton Buzzard Golf Club Golf Director
Sometimes we see some golfers in the shop that wake up in the morning feeling tired for one reason or another. We then see them after their round of golf they tell us they actually played really well for the first 12 or so holes then the tiredness crept in and they finished badly. So obviously tiredness doesn't help but this does go to show that sometimes we golfers think too much about our swings, we get tensed up and worry about what may happen if we hit a bad shot, especially in competition. In this slightly jaded state all you think about is trying to make contact with the ball, your body is relaxed and you keep things simple. The trick is to try and get into this relaxed almost no care state without the lack of sleep, keep your tempo and go for your shot. In the coming winter months good rhythm can be difficult to achieve especially with more layers of clothing on and trying to keep warm between shots can prove a challenge but by just being able to keep things smooth will help.

It is congratulations to Derek and Maggie Shaw who on Sunday won the Christmas Mixed Greensomes. A competition sponsored by former Club Captain Mel Glover and his wife Pauline, a former Ladies Club Captain. They beat Alice Ward and John Tarbox on countback with 34pts. Mick and Marilyn Myatt finished third, again on countback from John and Christine Bateman scoring 33pts. Derek has had a few weeks off golf due to a shoulder injury so was absolutely delighted to be taking home the trophy with his wife who is fairly new to the game.
Golf lesson packages
For more enjoyable golf and better scoring all of our PGA Professionals offer 4 lessons for the price of 3 or 7 lessons for the price of 5. All aspects of the game can be looked at and worked on. During the winter months the Swing Studio can be used with the use of FlightScope technology where the data from every shot that is hit can be analysed.

"Having lessons with Will has improved my consistency and understanding of both the full swing and short game and has made the game even more enjoyable as a result."

If you think your ball may be lost outside a water hazard or is out of bounds, to save time, play a provisional ball. Players searching for a ball should signal the players in the group behind them to play through as soon as it becomes apparent that the ball will not easily be found. They shouldn't search for five minutes before doing so.

|High quality outerwear a must for winter golf|
|Are your shoes fit for the winter months?|
Switching to a yellow ball in the winter is not a bad idea, it will certainly save you from losing so many balls for when you stray off line and when the light is fading. Srixon's AD333 is an excellent option; give it a go and see how you get on.
