News From the Course
Frank sees improvement in the condition of the front nine and people are doing a
better job as far as keeping on the cart paths, etc.
When there are puddles on the cart paths, do not navigate around them – drive
slowly through them.
The back nine renovation is on schedule.
Tip From the Pro (Kenny E.)
For a 20 or 30 yard shot from the fairway to the green, use your wedge,
but make sure to release the club – don’t try to hold the face open, just let your
arms and wrists roll over.
Dick Leach (Club design & terminology)
A less lofted driver doesn’t necessarily mean more distance. A higher ball flight
allows the ball to stay in the air longer and may result in a longer drive. Where
you hit the ball on the driver clubface determines the actual loft of the shot (due to
‘bulge’ and ‘roll’. Use impact labels or Dr. Scholl powder to determine where on
the clubface you are hitting the ball.
