Golf Tip

by Brett Thomas


 

Drill for a Stable Base
 
To practice feeling centered during the golf swing.  Take your normal stance and wedge a golf ball under the outside of each foot causing your feet to pitch inward.  Your lower body will stay in place as your upper body rotates back and through without much lateral movement.
Staying centered is crucial key for good contact and consistency.
I like to think I am swinging in a phone booth. It is the only way I can draw the ball.

 

Good luck !!
See you on the course!

CDGA Handicaps and Equitable Stroke Control

Many of you know what Equitable Stroke Control or ESC is, but it is questions asked very often. ESC is the downward adjustment of individual hole scores for handicap purposes in order to make handicaps more representative of a player's potential scoring ability. ESC sets a maximum number that a player can post on any hole depending on the player's Course Handicap. It is used only when a player's actual or most likely score exceeds his maximum number based on the table below. There is no limit to the number of holes on which a player may adjust his or her score. Basically, we all occasionally have those holes where we seem to forget how to play this game, and ESC brings that score back to reality without allowing it to affect our handicap more than it should. The tables below show exactly how it works:

Course Handicap ESC Maximum

9 or less                 Double Bogey

10-19                      7

20-29                     8

30-39                     9

40 and above        10
