Nick's top tip of the week

Club MOT

As the new golf season is not too far away it is very important to get your clubs checked to see if they are ready to go.

First thing to check is your grips. Poor grips lead to poor shots no grip your clubs will slip!!!

The next thing to check is you iron lies This is a very important part to check as this will affect your ball flight in a big way I would recommend you should check these every 6 months You will see from the pictures below the effects your ball flight has when your lies are wrong.

How does lie angle affect your ball flight?

If the toe of the club is pointing up at impact the lie angle is considered too upright, and if the heel of the club head is up at impact the lie angle is considered too flat. Upright lie angles produce shots that tend to pull or hook, while flat lie angles produce shots that tend to fade, or slice. (Or, to put it another way - upright lie angles make it easier to close the club face; flat lie angles make it easier to leave the club face open) 


Sam's top tip of the week


A consistent golf swing and a consistent golf game can only be built on proper alignment. Don't try and correct faults in your game before addressing this issue.

To check your alignment, pick a target in the distance and set up to the ball as normal. Place a club along the line of your toes, step back and see where the club points:

- If the club points directly at the target, or to the right of the target, your stance is what we call closed
- If the club points way left of the left of the target, your stance is what we call open. 
- The club should point parallel left of the target (imagine the line along your feet and the line from the ball to the target are like 2 train tracks). This is a square stance. 


Remember - your knees, hips and shoulders should be in line or parallel to your feet. If you can, have a friend hold a golf club across your hips and then your shoulders while you are in the set up position. Step away and check where this club is pointing. 

Don't forget the angle of the club face as you address the golf ball. This should be square (at right angles) to the ball-to-target line (see images below).
