I must apologise about such a short blog last week; I had full intentions of writing a longer piece, but due to a fantastic internet catastrophe I could only post a short one. I had a great time in Lanzarote, with some great weather, cracking food and even better company.
In the week before I went away I started some group coaching coaching sessions at Withernsea Golf Club, which I am pleased to say proved a success. Withernsea is over 100 years old and therefore is one of the oldest golf clubs in the East Riding, but has struggled for members recently. It is with this in mind that we have teamed up to offer some coaching opportunities, not just for the members, but anyone in the area wanting to start at golf. We are also trying to establish links to Withernsea High School as another way of growing the game in the local area. Please let me know if you know of anyone in the Withernsea area looking for a new challenge
The next bit is possibly the most important part of the whole routine, as getting your back in the correct position not only gives you every possible chance of making a good swing, but it is very important for injury prevention. Lower back pain is the number one injury complaint amongst golfers and a lot of the time it is due to poor posture. We must ensure that we tilt over from our waist and maintain the two natural curves we have in our back. When you tilt over from the waist you may feel your balance start to move over your toes, move your backside over your heels to counterbalance this.
It is also worth noting that we are less than two months away from one of the hardest endurance tests that I could manage. Collectively they are known as the Hornsea 100, but to me are known as Joe Palmer, Leigh Gawley and Chris Wilson. They have taken on the mammoth task of playing 100 holes of golf in one day to raise money for the children's charity Barnardos. If you have any spare change and wish to donate to them then please click here.
I have already been busy this week planning for next week and I am pleased to announce the start of some 'After Work' coaching sessions. I ran these towards the end of last year and they proved to be popular. They start on Wednesday 6th May at 6pm and will cover all the usual aspects of the game. If anyone is up for a pint after then I am more than happy to join you
