All work and no play, makes for an unhappy golfer! So, last week I tried to actually get out and do some practice.
So... that's exactly what I did! When I play at other courses, I seem to do fairly well and certainly have some reasonably good scores. However, when it comes to Howley Hall, its a very different story!
Golf. What a bloody game!!!
Having not played or practiced as much as I would have liked... I had two rounds in two days. I didn't really have that much expectation to be honest, but felt pretty good and completely refreshed.
My first round was at Doncaster GC, followed by the medal at Howley Hall GC. Wow... how ...
Putters. I always find it's a love hat relationship with them. Most recently, mine is mostly a hate relationship!!
Having struggled with my putter for quite a while now... I decided enough was enough, and get a new one! However, rather than going to eBay, I'd go and get one that was actually right for me, and my putting ...
A question I get asked a lot... well, maybe once or twice... it What's In My Bag.
In the past, I have been a little bit of an eBay golf addict. Yup, I was forever buying clubs that I thought would be good for me without trying them before realising they actually weren't and then selling them again! Thankfully... I have ...
So, my wife is turning 40... and we went to the very beautiful Palma in Mallorca to celebrate. Obviously... I took my clubs too!!
Whilst we did lots of lazy sun stuff, some pretty good eating and drinking.. I found time to play a couple of rounds of golf and review some courses for Golfshake.
The 63 hole Arabella ...
OK... time for another golf lesson with Rick Shiels over at Quest Golf Academy.
I have to say, I bloody love having lessons with Rick. Love his coaching style and love how he makes you feel so good about your game. I've still been having some issues with my ball striking, so this is what we focussed on.
WATCH THE ...
This week, I was lucky enough to play in the Yorkshire Classic. For those not familiar with this competition, its three day competition run by Square Peg Events, who run lots of amateur golf competitions across the UK, including League To Dubai.
The Yorkshire Classic has two separate formats, pairs and individual, ...
Rick Shiels help me establish that my Irons were just not right for me. So, I went for a fitting with my club PGA Professional Ryan Rastall at Howley Hall GC.
After having the fitting for my Callaway GBB Epic Driver earlier this year, I realised the importance of having equipment that is right for you and your golf ...
Is this the most exciting week of the year? Quite probably, yes.
It's Masters Week. First Major of the season, and the week where everyone gets massively excited about golf. Me included! I think I've watched everything that was on Sky catch up relating to the Masters. It's SUCH a good major. Also, I always have a little ...
After the debacle at the weekend, lesson number 3 with Rick could not come soon enough!
I headed over to Quest Golf Academy not feeling particularly great about my game. I felt like I messed around with my swing throughout the entire round, and not really stuck with the things I'd been working on. So, I was completely ...
