Allenby needs a caddy both on and off the course

When Australian golfer Robert Allenby missed the cut in the Sony Open , although still representing the PGA of Australia and the US Tour , his golfing was over for the week.

Whether or not he  was robbed, beaten and dumped in a park after missing the cut in the Sony Open, leaving him with cuts and a deep scrape on his forehead, is something that we will never know, yet it really shouldn’t matter.

When he handed that scorecard in for the weekend his golf was over and basically he becomes a normal (but famous) civilian who is alllowed to go about his business in anyway he sees fit .

My only comment would be that he should do as much behind closed doors as he can and maybe in future with all of his money he needs to hire a caddy/minder to get him into a taxi safe and home into bed.

His personal life should be just that , his mistake was taking it into the public eye and subsequently the media.

Sometimes things are out of ones control, but he loves to have fun and let his hair down ……he always has . So next time it would be advisable to have that caddy/minder look after him.

He can now get on with his golf , let his scores do the talking and try his best to not make any huge mistakes .

He needs to have a caddy both with him on and off the course

Video Golf Lessons or Trackman Golf Lessons

I have been using Trackman for many of my golf lessons of late and love the results and instant feedback that it provides my golf student.

Not only am I able to show the student where the ball is landing , but can also now show them the figures of their club face angle , swing direction , attack angle and club path, but I am also able to show them exactly what happens on different golf shots.

After using Trackman and don’t get me wrong ” I love Trackman” I still believe it is important to use a combination of both, as seeing what your golf swing is doing from a video perspective helps in the overall picture of fixing your fault…..or seeing what you are doing correctly.

So the next golf lesson you have , I would suggest a Trackman golf lesson in combination with a video lesson

Golf Lessons when it is HOT ???

hot golfer

Many students either don’t have a lesson or do not practice their golf and opt to do either on a cooler day , but interestingly practicing in the heat or having a lesson in the heat is actually good for you .

1. You will sweat out all the bad toxins in your body an d as long as you remain hydrated it is actually good for you

2. Too often we don’t practice our short games enough  and no one wants to hit balls in the heat , thereby giving you a great opportunity to sharpen your skills around the green.

 

Rules though for practicing in the heat would be the following

a) find a shaded spot under a tree

b) take a frozen bottle of water or two with you to practice or practice close to the clubhouse

c) take many breaks

d) vary your practice

e) don’t take the whole day off when it is hot , there will be pockets either during the early morning or late afternoon whereby it would be a little cooler

In addition hot days are nicer than playing on the cold rainy days so keep that in mind and there could be a run of hot days , meaning that you may not have the ability to play or practice sometimes for nearly a week.

My advice is to change your outlook on hot days , there is nothing better than practicing on a hot day , having a nice dip in the pool after your game and even having a nice cold beer at the end of the day.

Just remember to prepare for your practice , lesson or round of golf.

Take lots of iced water , wet a towel , frequent breaks and look at the forecast. As I said earlier there will always be pockets during the day whereby you can get your golf in
