The greenkeepers have seen their fair share of changeable weather again this week. Between the downpours, we have over-seeded the greens that needed attention following last week's fertilisation program. The fairways have also been sprayed with a selective weed killer to suppress the clover and weed growth accelerated by the recent weather. We are also continuing to work on the condition of the bunkers - external contractors were working on the course to de-stone and top up any sand that has been washed out by the rain.
What ball are you using?
So, you want to hit the ball higher, straighter and longer; what do you do? There are various options:
Get custom fitted for a new set of clubs in the shop
Have a course of lessons with one of our PGA professionals
Make sure you're using the correct ball for your game
I've spoken to you before about the importance of coaching and custom fitting, so I'm not going to go over this again (yet!). But it is the last of the aforementioned points that I want to briefly focus on this week.
The golf ball is the only piece of equipment that you use for every single shot (duh!), so why do so many of you neglect to consider whether the one you're using is best for your game?
It's exactly the same principle as club fitting. Jon will see different results from Greg, and Greg will see different results from Alex. It's all about finding the right equipment to benefit your game. Just because your playing partner reckons that Tour Balatas are the best balls since sliced bread, doesn't mean that they're going to give you results.
We've got plenty of different options available for you in the shop
So stop getting any old ball out of your bag, or using those scuffed ones you found in the bushes; instead, come and speak to a member of the team about which ball would best suit your game. If you're someone who wants to see the numbers by trying out each ball, then get in touch here to request a fitting.
Playing the correct ball is a cost-effective way of you improving your handicap!
Why wouldn't you want to help yourself?
