Greetings from Maurice Campbell
Leighton Buzzard Golf Club - PGA Golf Professional

Congratulations to Justin Rose on winning last weekend. It is great to see a British winner coming through. It all helps with the profile of golf. Although I think outside of golf it was a little drowned out by the football world cup. Tiger did not score as well as he would have liked but with so long out of the game it is difficult to come back with all guns blazing. That said his mental toughness in the interview afterwards was outstanding. I was told he said that he played well and that his game is on the verge of a breakthrough. He has this amazing skill of taking the positives out of anything that happens. It is a skill that I would urge you all to acquire as well. Science has proven that it takes five positive things to happen to make up for one negative event. This is any part of life.

One of the things I asked players I coach to do is to keep a good shot diary. This is to help focus their mind on the good rather than what has gone wrong. We are all very good at beating ourselves up and extremely poor at acknowledging the good shots we play. I have done this in the past and it hurts the game severely.

Why does it hurt your game? It hurts your game because it destroys your confidence. If you continually focus on what is going wrong that ends up being all you see and take notice of. You totally dismiss the good shots played and that distorts your thinking. So start a good shot diary.

Dr Bob Rotella talks about this in one of his books about American tour professional Mark Wilson. Dr Bob got Mark Wilson to keep a good shot diary for every good shot he played. This was to build his confidence. If you start your own good shot diary over time your confidence will improve. The hardest thing about keeping a good shot diary is actually sitting down and taking the time to do it. Give it try, you never know you might have fun doing it and improve your golf at the same time.

The Importance of Custom Fitting

We talk about custom fitting quite a lot and the reason is because it is vital for your success in golf. A good example is someone who suffers from a fade. If they have irons that are too flat for them they will be more likely to push the ball to the right.

So here is the scenario, a golfer that hits the ball to the right using clubs that make them hit the ball further to the right. Does it make sense using clubs that hurt your game? I don't think it does, so please watch the video that accompanies this paragraph as it talks about the effects of the wrong lie angle on your clubs. Also please book in to see us for a FREE custom fitting session. This is whether you are looking for a new set of clubs or not. We are here to help you improve so please use us.

Titleist Vokey SM5 wedges

From deep greenside rough, use your bunker technique. Move the ball forward in your stance, open the face and keep your torso rotating to the finish. The new grooves in Titleist’s Vokey SM5 wedges will help too; tests show they increase backspin by up to 500rpm from long grass.

Take advantage of our expertise

It’s easy to trial a friend’s driver when your form with the woods dips. And whilst you might stumble across better results, long term it’s not the answer. With our expertise we can determine the proper loft and shaft flex that will suit your swing and, ultimately, save you shots.
