Greetings from Cleobury Mortimer
Cleobury Mortimer Golf Club - Director of Golf

Good day members and friends of CMGC! From what I gather the weather has not been so good here, luckily Tom and I managed to get away to Spain for a few days. Sadly no golf was played unless you count 18 holes around the local mini golf course! Lloret De Mar for our good friends stag do was an interesting place to say the least! I did manage to have a walk around the course Wednesday afternoon and it is still holding up nicely considering the heavy rain it has had thrown at fingers crossed it will all change by the time you read this and we can have a nice weekend in the sun!

Head coach Phil Moore

Another week has come and gone and it is great to see so many of my lessons starting to put into practice what I have been teaching them. Rich Smith came second in the roll up and Bob Lucas after a long lay off from injury is getting back to where he used to be. Bob won the weekend medal in tough conditions and has been to see me regarding a few tweaks to get him back to his best. My lesson diary is always in the golf centre if you would like to book in any time, I can also be reach on this number 07851351513 or alternatively click here to send me an email. 

The dreaded shank

After a lot of requests my tip of the week is something all golfers dread and need a quick fix for 'stop shanking'. If you would like to suggest a tip of the week please contact me and I will feature it in forth coming newsletters.

A shanked golf shot is a shot in which the golf ball has been struck against the inside corner of the heel of the club where the clubface joins hosel. This causes the golf ball to shoot offline - to the right for right-handed golfers, left for the left handed golfers.

There are normally two main reasons why a golfer would hit the dreaded shank, first is a severe in to out swing path. This is a path in which the club head sinks or falls behind the player on the downswing. As speed and momentum build up, the club literally flies from coming down behind the player to going outward through the impact zone. The club stretches away from the player in the hitting area and eventually reaches too far away and shanks the ball.

A right handed player with this swing style will appear to swing to the right of the tar get, usually draws the ball naturally but pushes it often and has a high finish.

A shank will also occur if during your downswing you shift your weight from your heels to your toes. As your weight moves forward you will begin to lean forward. As this happens the club head will move out from the body about an inch and a half. This forward movement means the hosel is now positioned where you intended the centre of the club face to be. Thus the result is a shank as the ball is hit with the hosel.

Why it might be time for a spot of shoe shopping

Last week we talked about power transfer, something you will find uncomfortable if your shoes don't fit correctly. Research suggests a significant number of you aren't playing in the right size shoe which can only have a negative impact on your golf. Then there's the pain...

No more faffing! Choose the right trolley bag

Last week we took a look at some fantastic new lightweight carry bags on the market. For those 36-hole days, however, a trolley bag may be a better option. Be careful though, for trolley bags are like referees - you only notice the bad ones. Thankfully, we have some super options in our shop...
