Since my last blog, what a busy few weeks it has been, the golf season is really kicking in on and off the golf course.
It was a great night at the England Golf Awards at the Royal Lancaster London, honouring clubs, individuals and organisations that do so much for the good of the game. The room was packed with over 400 people there, making it a memorable evening for the award winners, even if a little daunting for those that had to collect the award and be interviewed by the host, BBC's Dan Walker. However, they all did a great job.
These type of events always inspire me, so I was looking forward to this year's first match in the Team Naga vs Team Clive Challenge. This was held at Lambourne Golf Club, where Clive and another member of his team are members, so home advantage! Only jesting as that's not an excuse for our two and a half to a half defeat, especially where my match was concerned. Julia and Richard, both single figure golfers, were just too good for myself and Lisa, but what a lovely day we had, playing in glorious sunshine - see our team pic below. As you know, I've been tinkering with my swing - six out of ten on that day, so it's back to the range!
Prior to the match, Dan Grieve, talked us through what's new for TeeToCup (the online learning programme) and what is involved for us as part of this exercise. Each month we will focus on a specific part of the game, beginning with the full swing. From the information that Dan sends (Discover), we'll digest this and then extract what relates to our game (Distill), and then practise the key points (Do) - known as 3D Learning. We're all really up for this and hope to improve, so I'll keep you posted throughout the year. If you'd like to know more, visit: teetocup.com
