Head Coach Phil Moore

One of the most common faults I find with my lessons is their posture, many don’t realise what their posture is like until they actually see it. Once you get in the grove of doing something it may not be correct however it feels good and you continue with it. This is where video analysis and photography are critical for my lessons. When we work on the posture I will send you pictures so you know what you are currently doing and what needs to be changed. These are great to print off and take with you when you practice so you know you are doing it correctly.

Improve Your Posture for better ball striking

Many club golfers that I watch that have inconsistent ball striking also have poor posture at set up.  Mean while when you watch professionals on the European and PGA Tours, every posture is the same and they are all great ball strikers.  The posture, when done right, is the foundation for a repeatable swing and more consistent ball striking.

When the posture is angled properly from your hips, and not your waist or upper back, it allows you to turn properly on the backswing and swing the club up and down on a better plane.  If you bend from your waist or upper back your back will become more rounded and it’s near impossible to make contact with the golf ball with any great consistency.

 

A perfect drill for this is one in which you get the club up in front of you, the butt of the club should touch your belt buckle while the bottom of the shaft should touch the top of your head.  Then you will just bend over using your hips until you start to feeling a small stretch in your hamstrings.  Once you get this feeling you then just bend your knees a little until they are over the balls of your feet and this is how you stand to the ball.  

 

With this new posture you will not only look like a golf pro, but you’ll start hitting it like one too!

Emily Price Wins Again

Cleobury Mortimer golf club’s Emily Price has once again showed her supreme talent by winning the Shropshire Schools girls golf tournament. Cleobury Mortimer golf club was once again hosting this prestigious tournament with the golf talent of Shropshire descending onto the venue. 

Emily Price made a mockery of the conditions to shoot a gross 73 which is one over par for the 18 holes…. Yes you read that correctly one over gross off the ladies stroke indexes. Considering there was England international boys on show who shot 71 gross this score really goes show how good Emily is. We are very proud to have Emily a member of Cleobury.

Emily’s father Kelvin had this to say ‘Emily has been practicing hard all winter and to win this, her first tournament of the year really sets her up for a busy schedule. We will be traveling all over the country this year and hope to be in the mix competing at the top of the leader board in many of them’

Double Roll Up Results

The ever popular double roll up returned to Cleobury Mortimer golf club this past weekend. Despite some rough weather on Friday the course stood up well and it was decided the competition would become a handicap qualifier. Ian Downes and Andy Johnson shot 37 points to finish fourth and fifth. As the saying goes ‘beware of the injured golfer’ Guy Taylor further cemented this accusation with 38 points to finish third.

The day however belonged to two of Cleobury’s bright young prospects. Jack Severn shot 39 points to finish second and Alex Barnes shot 40 points to win! Both Alex and Jack have been working hard on their golf over the winter and are now starting to see rewards for their hard work. Both the lads have big plans for this year and I am going to stick my neck out and say by the end of the year they will be both off a handicap of 6 or below!

Great to see the next generation of CMGC golfers playing well!

With dry fairways and great greens Paul Liggins and John Haywood put in a stunning performance to record 44 points to give them second place.

However the day belonged to Aaron Booton and Craig Shorter. They played out of their skin to shoot 46 points and win by two shots. With scores like this been posted it really does make us excited for the golf season! Bring it on!
