Greetings golfers, Pace of play
The Masters is only a month away which for many golfers represents the start of their golfing season. There's always that sense of anticipation when the first Major of the year gets going. Many of us have seen the course on numerous occasions and know the challenges that lie ahead of the players. The golf course always looks stunning and the tournament is a pleasure to watch. At this stage of play obviously Adam Scott has become the favourite after winning his last two tournaments but we all know this is a very strange game and form can go very quickly. I'm sure he would like to bottle up his play at the moment and reopen it in a month's time. He has said himself that he considers Bubba Watson as favourite simply because Augusta suits his game so well, he has won the event a couple of times and he's also playing very well at the moment. Whether he's trying to take the pressure off himself or not it must still be very difficult for him to keep his own expectations down and just try to keep playing the way he is.

We get many members coming into the shop having just played a few holes for practice before a competition and are really looking forward to the event as they have just played really nicely, then their expectations get really high for a good performance which sadly doesn't materialise due to putting too much pressure on themselves. It's easy to say but when playing golf you can only worry about the shot in hand and if you give that shot 100% concentration you can do no more. You have to let the score happen and hopefully it's a good one.
In the shop we have our annual US Masters sweepstake up and running, so if you would like to have a little added interest it will only cost you £2.00 per player and you could win a voucher to be spent in the shop.
