Mikael Lundberg finished in 4th position at the SSE Scottish Hydro Challenge at Macdonald Spey Valley Golf Club in Aviemore Scotland. Mikael held the half way lead after firing rounds of 67 and 65. He has been working hard recently with Right Sided European Tour coach Luke Ringrose and it seems to be paying off. He moved up to 48 spots to 24th on the Challenge Tour Road to Aman. Nice playing Mikael!
One of the most overlooked principles in the Golf Swing is perhaps the most important! The correct arm bias at set-up is crucial in determining the Shape of the body and how the arms work during the swing. Most people who leak power set-up with their right arm straight and then over-shape or invert their body. Both scenarios stop golfers generating power correctly and hitting with true loft and compression. We have just posted a video of Gary explaining it, nothing new…. that is a Ben Hogan drilling it above!
Rebecca Artis recorded her first career hole-in-one in the final round of the Four Winds Invitational in South Bend, Indiana. She was three-under-par for her final three holes after a holing out on the 7th hole and making a birdie on the 9th. Rebecca finished in a tie for 9th and earned an extra $5000 courtesy of Orion Group.
Centrifugal force is generated from the centre outward but if your centre is not in the right position at set-up and rotates in the wrong direction going back, you are not going to be able to maximise this force. This month in the Members Area Gary talks about the biggest power leak in the golf swing and shows how to fix it. We have a new Live Lesson, some amazing Before and After footage, and a video that will make it easier to know your own swing pattern. Enjoy!
Getting setup correctly is crucial if you want to turn correctly. If the right side of the body gets blocked it is impossible to turn in the correct direction and maintain your Shape. Most right-side blockers set up with backward hips and toe their right foot in. This month Gary explains how to free up your right-side so it can turn properly. He also answers some questions on arm lift and analyses the amazing wedge game of recent PGA Tour winner, Cameron Smith.
Taylor Cooper fired a second round 61 and will take a two shot lead into the final round at the Murray Bridge Hotel PGA Classic.
“I was pretty annoyed at myself considering the score, 59 was certainly in the back of my mind with a few holes to play,” said Cooper after a three-putt bogey on 17.
The tournament is the feature event in SA which makes up part of the 2017 WA/SA PGA Subaru Pro-Am Series.
Jason Pavese and Federal Golf Club will be hosting Gary & Peter Senior for their 2017 Pro-Am on Friday 7 April.
Gary & Peter will be doing a clinic from 10-11am with Peter playing the event starting just after midday. The clinic will be attended by event sponsors but all Website Members and Right-Sided fans are encouraged to come along and watch and also follow Peter around in the afternoon.
The clinic will feature Gary & Peter’s association – Pete’s history, how his career has evolved and how meeting Gary enabled him to achieve career highs well after most of his contemporaries have hung up their clubs. Gary will go into some detail on what he’s done with Pete and the things they still work on.
Peter Senior will also be playing Matt Millar’s event, the Austbrokers Gold Creek Pro-Am Saturday & Sunday, 8-9 April.
All right-sided fans are welcome to follow Peter for both events and also Taylor Cooper who is in town for the Canberra Pro-Am Series. Taylor has posted several top five finishes in recent events.
Gary often says “release is for prisoners”! What he means is that you do not need to change your initial wrist angles to “release” the club. This month in the Member Area Gary demonstrates the Toe-up Draw and explains how to shape your ball without extending your arms and flipping your wrists. We also have a new video coming on clearing the right side, a new Live Lesson, and Gary analyzes European Tour Player, Alex Norens‘ swing.
Fabrizio Zanotti claimed his second European Tour Title in style at the Maybank Championship in Malaysia with an eagle at the last. Zanotti reeled off seven birdies and an eagle for 63 in the final round.
“I think it was probably the best round of my career, so I’m very happy,” he said. “It was a really good day, a really good week and I’m really happy.
“I think it was at the 15th where I thought I might be able to win, when I made birdie there. I thought, maybe I’ll have a chance if I make two more birdies, but I made a birdie and an eagle so it was great.
“It feels really good to be a winner again. I’ve been working a lot and I was not in my best run of form, missing three cuts in a row, but that’s in the past and today I’m a winner again and it feels great.”
I think it was probably the best round of my career, so I’m very happy – Fabrizio Zanotti
Congratulations Fabrizio and his long-time Instructor Luke Ringrose on another fantastic win! It was a well deserved win to one of the straightest hitters on tour in 2016.
Peter Senior may have retired from four-round events last year but that has not stopped him winning the three-round ones. He fired rounds of 69, 69, and 67 to finish on 11-under-par at the Shepparton BMW Victorian Senior Open at Yarrawonga Mulwala Golf Club Resort and won by four shots. Nice playing Peter!
