Greetings from Matt Bannister
Head PGA Professional - Panshanger Golf Complex

Hello golfers,

Just a quick reminder to start this week's newsletter that we are holding a Callaway Club Fitting Day on Tue 16 June. Appointments are starting to be taken so if you are interested in trying Callaway's 2015 product range or have your eye on a new driver get booked in ASAP. Either come and see us in store, give us a call or get in touch here to secure your place.

I really enjoy working in the golf industry, but I'm guessing as with all jobs there are some ups and downs. However when one of your pupils comes in after their round to show you their scorecard as they have broken 100 for the first time, you can see how good that makes them feel and that they are achieving a milestone with their golf. It also gives me satisfaction that they have take the time out to come and share that milestone. 

I really do enjoy helping people play golf. Half-term has been and gone and we move into June. A slightly damp start to the week and not to be out done by the weather, some golfers took advantage of our simulator to play golf indoors in the dry. This is the perfect use if you don't want to play in the rain but don't want to miss out on your day's golf. Genius! Apparently we will be experiencing a heatwave this week. What a perfect chance to get your clubs and come and play some golf at Panshanger.

We are going to start a tip of the week feature within the newsletter and hopefully it will give you some ideas and thoughts about improving your golf. There will be a short video for you to watch and then you can give it a go by booking some coaching with myself or Daniel who starts on the 8th of June.

The bunker shot

I was giving a lesson to a pupil this week on how to get out of the bunkers. Some people really make the basic bunker shot very difficult for themselves so I thought this was a good place to start! So watch the short clip and if you're having trouble with bunkers hopefully this will help. Click on the image here to view the video.

If you are still struggling after giving this a go or want a bespoke one-to-one lesson, please come and see us in the shop or get in touch here.

Lady Golf Improvement Champion's Report - Lesson Three 

Matt wisely suggested working on my short game this week, so I could spend time getting to grips with the swing changes made so far in my long game and avoid information overload. Matt was generally happy with my existing chipping technique, though he widened my stance a little to minimise my body movement and keep the main action in the arms. 

The main point of the lesson was to make my chip shots more predictable and reliable by getting the ball on the ground and rolling as soon as possible. Previously, I was automatically reaching for my pitching wedge even when there was no hazard between the ball and the flag. Now I will aim to keep the ball lower with my 7 or 8-iron when appropriate. Matt also showed me that 'putting' with my rescue club can sometimes be the best option. It's all about the right choice of club and shot. 

I'm looking forward to some warmer weather to take advantage of the light evenings and put in some practice.
