Saturday Clinic Recap – June 13, 2015

GOLF SKILLS PRACTICED THIS WEEK
Definition of Through the Green: ‘Through the green’ is the whole area
of the course except the teeing ground and putting green of the hole
being played and all hazards on the course.
The key to ball position when chipping: place the ball in line with your
sternum, or the middle of your chest. This is the easiest way to place the
ball so that you make solid contact. Keeping the ball in line with your
sternum means the ball is in the back of your stance. Your club will make
contact before your swing arc bottoms out. This is critical for crisp
contact. If your club reaches the bottom of its arc before it gets to the
ball, you will send the ball screaming over the green, forcing you to chip
again.

SWING TIP OF THE WEEK
A display of Responsibility
and Respect by filling in
divots.
“Sometimes the biggest problem is in your head. Youíve
got to believe.î Jack Nicklaus.
