Golf, Fish, Compete At Local Events and Give Back To Veterans!
September is the perfect month for everything golf! It’s a chance to get a few more rounds of golf in before the leaves start covering the ground and the first few snowflakes are in the air. It’s a time look back on our golf season and enjoy the memories of fun with family and friends. It’s also a time to thank a veteran and to remember those we lost on September 11 by getting involved with one of the many veterans programs or outings available. This month’s newsletter offers great golf events and activities for everyone!

September Golf Tip By PGA Professional, Bill Abrams
Solid impact on short shots
Hitting our short shots crisply and accurately is a must to play our best. Many struggle with skulls or chunks on these shots. I suggest a drill to help you eliminate this from your shots. Simply place two tees in the ground about 12” apart. Set up as if the line the tees make is the back of the golf ball. Make a swing and notice where your club contacts the ground. Prior to the tees will result in a heavy and/or possibility a thin shot. Contact with the ground needs to be even with or slightly ahead of the tees to promote solid contact. Now take a golf ball and set it so the back edge is even with the tees. Hit a shot and see where the contact point with the ground is. You will notice if it’s past the tees, your shot will be much crisper. You will also notice a much better-balanced finish position.
