New Range and Course Buddy

Sometimes life as a pro can be lonely – especially dealing with all the hours practicing alone to hone and develop the  skills required to maximise the opportunity to win. 

To help me through those hours, I now have a new friend & we have named him “DEXTER”

   
 

Golf Channel posed this question on Instagram

  
Answer – Yes I believe it does 👍⛳️😀

  

The Masters Tournament is around the corner

This time last year I was preparing and looking forward to Masters week. Working, living and playing throughout the week in Augusta was extremely special. Meeting special people like Gary Player made it all the more memorable.

  

North Vs South Cup 2015 (Carolinas PGA)

One if the best pieces of information I have read for a very long time.

A stunning day at The Wyndham

I spent yesterday walking the course following Tiger, will he win today (maybe not), even if he doesn’t he’s certainly moving forward. Watch out for the English – Paul Casey can certainly get in the mix and he is due for a win…

  

Recently had a superb week in Augusta, GA

Masters Week in Georgia was fantastic, working and playing hard during the week and a great day at the Masters. – Thank You Champions Retreat for the experience, your facility is outstanding. Helping Mr Gary Player on the range was a privilege.

Score on the day – Level par 72 which included an unfortunate double at the 18th  (Drive hit the cart path and went OOB)

Playing a controlled chip shot…..

Position the ball toward the back of your stance

Chip 1

For distance control and feel~ maintain a light grip throughout the stroke (Do not tense)

Chip 2

Stay level throughout the shot and keep eye contact with your strike point.

Chip 3

Accelerate through the shot, do not break your wrists, let the club do the work.

Chip 4

Carolinas PGA Assistant Championships ~ Grand Dunes Resort, Myrtle Beach, SC

Scott USOPEN QUAL

Lambert Grabs Lead after Round 1

(Round 1 of 2)

(Myrtle Beach, SC) – Scott Lambert, a PGA apprentice at Mill Creek Golf Club in Mebane, NC, has taken a two shot lead after the first round of the National Car Rental Carolinas PGA Assistant Championship supported by Kirk & Matz. The 36-hole championship is being contested over Monday & Tuesday, August 4th & 5th at the Resort Club at Grande Dunes in Myrtle Beach, SC.

Lambert carded a 5-under par 67, with 6 birdies and 1 bogey during his round. That’s quite an accomplishment, considering the players had to endure about an hour’s worth of heavy rain during the early afternoon. The rain halted just in time for the golf course to still be playable, enabling the field of 71 to finish first round play.

The National Car Rental Carolinas PGA Assistant Championship supported by Kirk & Matz brings together PGA assistant professionals and apprentices from all over North and South Carolina. The competitors are vying for a chance to qualify for the 38th National Car Rental PGA Assistant Championship, Oct.  30 – Nov. 2, at PGA Golf Club (Wanamaker Course) in Port St. Lucie, Fla. Five qualifying spots are availble to the field, along with three alternate positions.

There is a three-way tie for second place at 3-under par 69 that includes PGA apprentice Luke McClellan of Chechessee Creek Club in Okatie, SC, PGA apprentice Rohan Allwood of the Woodlands Country Club in Columbia, SC, and Ben Burkhalter, PGA of Forsyth Country Club in Winston-Salem, NC. There are quite a few players in the hunt, as 21 players sit at even par or better after round one. PGA apprentice Ray Franz of Daniel Island Club in South Carolina is the only competitor in the field who is exempt from qualifying for his top-4 finish at the 37th PGA Assistant Championship last year. Franz is currently tied for 28th with a 2-over par 74.

The second and final round begins tomorrow at 7:45 AM at the Resort Club at Grande Dunes in Myrtle Beach. Competitors are teeing off from both #1 & #10 tees, with the leaders starting at 9:24 AM off #1.

A great afternoon of golf with Minjee Lee – the current Women’s World No1 Amateur

It was a pleasure to have the Women’s World No1 Amateur visit Mill Creek NC today with her good friend and respected member Mr Cho.

After her tremendous golf display in the recent Women’s US Open at Pinehurst No2, finishing T22, she was obviously out to relax and enjoy the
Course.

20140625-193959-70799296.jpg

We all played 9 holes off the back tees –
Scores after the 9 came in at Scott -3, Minjee -1, Mr Cho Level.

I wish Minjee the best of luck in her career – I am sure she will continue to impress everyone with her superb golf game.
