4TH July Tournament

This yearís 4th of July tournament will be played on Thursday, July 4 to Saturday, July 6. This event includes top quality players from around the state and region and affords a great opportunity to be in the gallery watching these men and women compete. With over 20 players with scratch (0) handicaps or better the level of competition will be remarkable. A former 4th of July Champion, Kramer Hickok is now a regular on the PGA Tour. Both the North and South Courses will be closed for public play on the days of the tournament but will open again after play is complete on Saturday, July 6.

Come out and enjoy the derby on both Thursday after play is complete for the women and on Friday for the men. Both days the derby will start as close to 5 p.m. as possible.

Cart traffic and wet

weather

With all the recent rain please be observant of potential cart path restrictions on both courses. Usually when the course is really wet we will limit cart traffic to paths only or a strict 90 degree rule in order to protect the grass. The 90 degree rule should be followed at all times even when the courses are drier. 90 degree rule means drive out to your ball and then return directly to the cart path. The staff and turf will greatly appreciate your cooperation.

Find out where you are making contact

Last week I wrote about making solid contact being much more important than swing hard. To check to see if you are hitting the sweet spot on your clubs purchase a can of foot powder and spray it on the face of your driver. Hit several shots and then look at the face to see where the impact is occurring. You can then adjust your stance to be closer of farther away if you are hitting off center. You may need to move your hands up or down if you are missing either too high or too low on the face. Keep using the spray to track your progress toward hitting the sweet spot consistently. It should be noted that the new technology of clubs has created a much bigger sweet spot on all our clubs so our misses arenít near as bad as they used to be.
