Whitefield Golf Club news from Mr Chris Bibby ~ Head PGA Professional
Welcome to the latest edition of our almost weekly newsletter, where we keep you up to date on everything you need to know going on here at Whitefield Golf Club.
Winter is coming
Have you ever noticed how much harder you need to hit your putts in the winter compared to summer? As surfaces begin to slow due to longer grass and wetter greens, the need for a little extra effort on your putting stroke becomes clear.
Should you change your putter?
As putts need to be hit harder to get the ball going the same distance as they do in the summer months, using a heavier putter certainly won’t do you any harm.
The thought here is that a heavier putter will do more of the work for you, allowing for a smooth and more controlled putting stroke.
Whilst still being relatively lightweight compared to some putters, Cleveland's new Frontline range is certainly an option we'd recommend you trying.
Come and see us in the pro shop and we'd be happy to help you find the perfect putter this autumn.
They've done it!
I start this week by again congratulating the NWMGA (Whitefield) Team for Winning the League for the first time in many a year. With Stand only drawing 4 - 4 with Ellesmere it means we are both on 76.5 pts with Whitefield having a game in hand, although even if we didn't win another point we would win on Away points advantage.
Massive Congratulations from the Pro Shop to everyone who has played in the team this year.
Captain's Away Day On Monday I was fortunate enough to play in the Captain's Away Day at Chorlton Cum Hardy Golf Club and had a fantastic day with everyone especially my playing partners David Rose, Rob Abbott and Mike Goldman.
We finished with a very respectable 83 points and I was lucky enough to come runner-up in the individual with 39 points after countback. Well done to Adrian Barr for his fabulous score of 41 points and getting down into single figures this week.
The Epic Flash is obviously working... Away Day Congratulations...
I would also like to congratulate my fine Assistant Ross King who qualified and passed his playing ability test so he is now going to start his First Year with the Professional Golfers Association. I'm sure you will congratulate him when you see him. I intend on helping Ross all the way with his training so he can become a fine Golf Professional.
