Naas Golf Club PGA Golf Professional
Congratulations to Conor O'Rourke who won the St. Andrews Links Trophy last weekend on the famous old course at St.Andrews Scotland. Conor has been waiting for this win for some time and showed that hard work, patience and belief pays off in the end!
Conor joins Jack Hume and Jonathan Yates next week at the British Amateur in Royal Porthcawl and we wish them all the very best of success.
Best of luck to all our club teams competing over the following week and in particular our Pierce Purcell team who are out this weekend at home.
Hole-out without fear
Holing short putts is critical if you're to compile a good round; it can save a poor score and turn an average one into a competitive total. The pros on TV make it look easy, but even they struggle, so there's no need to panic if you're having difficulties from six feet and in.
Confidence is a key factor, so here's a top tip for you to work with on the putting green, one that helps you to stop looking for the ball, which is a common fault.
When you're worried about the result it's understandable that you might look where the ball is heading almost before you've even hit it. So, try putting a marker underneath the ball and keep focused on that after you've hit the ball. This will help maintain stability in your technique.
There are plenty of tips out there to help putting, but this drill is simple and can work wonders. Give it a go and hopefully you'll reap the rewards.
