Hello once again from the one and only CMGC, as another week flies by and we thankfully edge closer towards warmer and dryer weather as the picture below shows (taken Wednesday afternoon), we take a look at what has being going on at CMGC this past week.

During the winter period it is a good time to reflect on how your game held up over 2015 and whether there are some areas that you want to and can improve on. The example we will look at this week involves Tom. 

Tom spoke about how too many 3 putts cost him some good scores over the summer and needed some help limiting these. We decided to look at distance putting to begin with, from about 40- 50 feet. 

We set up a square perimeter 2 foot short of the hole and 2 foot beyond the hole, Tom would hit 100 putts and record how many he got in to the square. We did this for 5 days with Tom recording results of 75/ 100, 87/ 100, 91/ 100, 90/ 100 and 91/ 100, a steady improvement but still some more practice is needed. 

The purpose of this drill was to help Tom get a feel for his distance control, Tom accepts that he won't hit it close every hole so having some long putts where you want to just get it down in two and move on will happen. Tom also mentioned how trying to beat the previous days score added a touch of pressure, this was also something I was hoping for as we often don't know how to practice under pressure and when we are under pressure on the course we may not know how to cope with it. The more you can practice under pressure the better prepared you will be when the situation presents itself.

We intend to carry on with this drill, hitting some putts with the eyes closed to gain more feel and to shorten the perimeter in an attempt to always get the ball to a tap in distance. Over the coming weeks we will vary the distances and focus on a variety of different situations including par savers and birdie putts.

Why not give it ago and let us know your results?

Update from Amy

I'm nearly halfway through my first year of PGA Training, with two assignments submitted and 3 more to do plus my exams, my training this year feels like its flying by. I'm learning more day by day, from the information and study guides available from the PGA but also from Dave, Rob, Sam and Tom. I'm really looking forward to expanding who I teach and getting some teaching prices set up ready for when the season truly begins.

Club news 

George is back and the Kitchen has a refurbishment. 

George has returned from his holiday and is back busy organising for another full year at CMGC, whilst George was away we had a local building firm, Hopton Buillding Services come in and give the kitchen an upgrade. Don't forget even if you aren't playing much golf at the moment we are still open if you want to pop on up for a coffee or a bite to eat.

Annual County Dinner 

On Friday 15th January the Annual County Dinner took place at Kings Norton Golf Club: Graham, Tom, President Tom Straughton, Vice Captain Dave Moore and myself were suited and booted ready to celebrate a successful year for the county. The County First Team won the Midlands League for the first time in a number of years. Another standout achievement went to our very own Jack Severn winning the U14 Junior County Championships. 

The event was well attended with over 200 guests, which included: The President of England Golf, Mr Nigel Evans, OBE, Will Painter, WUGC County President and Mr George Macgregor, OBE, and immediate Past Captain of the R&A. These events are always good for networking with other golf clubs and it was great to hear from several people who have played up at Cleobury in the last 12 months how they were made to feel very welcome from the staff and members of Cleobury. 

A big thank you must go to the county secretary Stuart Pritchard for helping organise such a fantastic night. If anyone would like to attend the County PGA Dinner in March at Kings Norton please speak to myself.

Time to Re- Grip those golf clubs

We all know you should re-grip your clubs once every year or every 40 rounds. Regardless of how often you play: ozone, heat, dirt and oils are constantly at work breaking down the materials that make up your grips. Granted, frequent play and personal preference may dictate re-gripping sooner, but with normal use there's enough degradation of the material after a year to warrant fresh grips. Keep in mind that grips lose a significant amount of their original feel long before they become hard and slick. 

Fresh grips can't overcome a bad swing, or poor alignment, or any of the other faults that bedevil even the best golfers. But a national survey of golfers showed that 66% of those who had clubs re-gripped showed an average drop of three to four strokes per round! 

If you are thinking about getting your clubs re- gripped then why not take advantage of this fantastic offer we are have on Black Widow grips. Have your irons re- gripped with either the Black Widow Tour Silk or Black Widow Maker at £4 per iron (Minimum of five irons) and get your Woods/ Hybrids re- gripped for FREE (Maximum of four woods/ hybrids) whilst stocks last.

Have a great golfing week and we hope to see you at CMGC very soon.

Dave, Matt, Amy and Team CMGC
