Last month I shared a tip from Manuel de la Tore. As I related, he emphasized swinging the golf club with control and balance. So this month, let me add two more of his instructional pointers:
1. For Manuel, all good golf swings begin with a grip where the two hands face each other as they wrap around the handle of the golf club. As you wrap your hands around the club, be sure to grip without choking the life out of it. Remember, the golf club is your friend, not your enemy.
2. All good golf swings incorporate a balance between a relaxed and athletic stance, with slightly flexed knees and arms that hang without tension. From this setup, golfers can generate a smooth swing with a consistent tempo.
Hopefully, these tips help you the next time you tee it up.
TUESDAY NIGHT SCRAMBLE
Last week we finished our fourth month of Tuesday Night Scrambles. Between 12 and 18, four-man teams have competed for weekly cash prizes and skins. Tuesday, July 20th, 72 players came ready to play for a $360 cash purse and a skin package worth $1600. With that said, the team of Dave Mack, Justin Knapp, Danny Hamilton, and Joe Porfidio eagled hole number 9 for the “lone” skin. Congratulations, guys!
