Don't ground your club on the sand before you take a swing

HAPPY Australia Day for tomorrow and I hope you have a round of golf planned over the weekend.

Today I want to tell you about our Aussie golfers who are embarking on making their living on the tours around the world.

Let's start with the players on the main tour in the USA. Season campaigners like John Sendan, Jason Day, Geoff Ogilvy will be joined by Greg Chalmers, Marc Leishman, Aaron Bradley, Marcus Fraser, Kurt Barnes, Richard Green, Robert Allenby, Cameron Percy and Rod Pampling.

On the secondary tour players such as Scott Hend and Adam Crawford will be trying to finish in the top 25 on the money list to then jump up onto the main tour in 2014.

We also have players heading to Japan like Brendon Jones, Brad Kennedy and Steve Conran. On the One Asia tour we have players such as Daniel Popovic, Matthew Griffin, Nick Cullen, Anthony Brown and Aaron Townsend, who all finished in the top 10 money list last year.

This is just naming a few names on each tour that are doing well but there are many more finding their 'ground' on the minor tours.

Rule of the week

TODAY'S 'Rule of the Week' is for those players who are not aware of what you can do in a bunker and what you can't.

The first rule is not to ground your club on the sand before you take a swing at the ball and if you do touch the sand you need to add a penalty shot to your score.

You are allowed to shuffle your feet into the sand to get your footing so take advantage of this as it does help you understand the thickness of the sand.

Junior clinic

JUNIOR clinic entry forms are available for the classes which start in early February and all the classes will run for 30 minutes on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, from 3.30pm.

And we will only have four to five children in each class so book in early to reserve your child's spot. To book you can e mail us on browniesgolfshop@netspace.net.au

The cost is $95 and they run for eight weeks. Spots have been filling very fast and we have some clinics already full so book in quickly to get that required time.

Results

THE men's results for last Saturday event, which was a single stableford, saw the winner being Jamie McKay.

He is a new member to the club so well done to Jamie. He won by one point with 42 points from three players on 41 points.

Tomorrow's event is a single stableford for the men and ladies and we welcome all players who have a A.G.U handicap to join in.

To book in call the pro shop on 49782649.
