This month in the Members Area Gary looks at the reasons some students shut-off with their shoulders when trying to get into the Shape. We have some video coming that will make putting even easier, a Live Lesson on the Body Release, and more … Enjoy!

Rebecca Artis has been working hard on her game over the summer break. She headed to Sydney last week to play some ALPG events in the lead up to the 2017 season and has found her form early. She finished 4th last week at Pennant Hills with a final round 6-under-par and has just backed it up with a second place finish at the Oatlands Ladies Pro-am at Oatlands Golf Club. She fired rounds of 69 and 70 to finish one shot back at 7-under-par.

Jan Stephenson made it five wins in a row on the Legends Tour when she won the Honors division at Walgreens Charity Championship presented by The Seagate Country Club. She did not get off to a great start, three-putting the first hole for bogey, then missing a four-foot birdie putt on the second hole. She came back with a round of 71 and defended her Legends Honors Division. Well done Jan!
Peter Senior got off to a good start in the US last week with a T21 finish at the Tucson Conquistador Classic. He opened with rounds of 69-68 at the Tucson National course to be T9 heading into the final round. He finished with an even par 72 but it was a good result in his first tournament back on the Champions Tour with the short putter. He has been working on the claw grip with Gary and Luke over the summer and his putting has been very solid. You can see the changes he has made and learn his version of the claw grip inside the Members area this month.
Ben Hogan talked about wrapping the forearms and this month in the Members Area Gary shows how this feeling can help you if you have problems with shutting the face and or rolling the arms.

Gary spent some time talking to US Amateur Champion Bryson DeChambeau at the this year’s Australian Open. He analyses his swing this month and talks about what we can all learn from it.
Peter Senior finished inside the Top 10 in his first tournament in 30 years using the short putter last week. The ISPS Handa Perth International was a European Tour event and had a very strong international field. He posted rounds of 69, 73, 66, and 71 and finished in a tie for 9th position. He has been working hard on his putting stroke over the last few months at the Glades and putted really well all week. He averaged just 28.5 putts per round. Well Done Pete!

For Artis, it was a bitter sweet result, “I played pretty solid golf all day today. I hit some great shots coming down the stretch. I birdied 15 and 17. I hit great one into 17 to give me a one shot lead. I just hit a poor tee shot on the 18th and left myself too far in and it was a great birdie by her. That was one of the toughest holes on the golf course. That was an awesome birdie. “
“I have done some pretty hard work with Gaz (Gary Edwin) and Luke Edwin leading into this week and felt my game was pretty good leading into this week. I putted solid all week and holed some good putts today and all week. That was the main thing.”
The week is not all lost; she took home a cheque for over $15,000 and walked away with a great deal of confidence in her game and where it is going.
“It absolutely gives me confidence. It is all about putting yourself in contention, week in and week out, and eventually and hopefully one day I can finish it off again. But I am looking forward to China and Turkey. I had a great Aussie summer, so I can’t be disappointed at all.”
She has moved up to 2nd on the ALPG Order of Merit.
Rebecca Artis put on a ball striking exhibition in front of a heavy Right Sided crowd at Royal Pines Resort on the Gold Coast in the second round of the Australian Ladies Masters. Her bogey on the first hole was quickly forgotten as she reeled off eight birdies in difficult windy afternoon conditions. She is currently leading by three shots heading into the weekend.
“I started the round with a bogey and they always say you start a good round with a bogey. So it was 7 under, I’ll take that.”
A change with her putting has made a big difference to her confidence, “ I’ve changed my putting to left hand low. I changed after the second round of LPGA Q School which is not ideal but I just felt like I really had to make a change with my putting. My coach was over there and Geoff my husband who caddies for me he was there, and we just made a group decision that it was time to make a change with my putting -it’s worked wonders really.”
“You know, I can start the ball on line now, you know the line I choose, and it’s just been a matter of getting used to the feel of it and getting the pace because it feels a little bit different. But I feel like as if you know I’ve got that now and I feel comfortable over it now. I felt a bit nervous, especially last week when it was the first tournament I played with it but I feel like I’m really comfortable over the putter now and can start the putts on line so which is a nice feeling.
Rebecca Artis got the year of to nice start finishing 4th in the $250,000 Oates Victorian Open at 13th Beach Golf Links, Barwon Heads. She fired rounds of 73, 71, 69 and 71 and finished only four shots behind lead on 8-under-par. Rebecca changed her putting technique late last year and this is her first 4 round tournament using her new cross handed putting grip. This week she will be playing in The Australian Ladies Master at Royal Pines.
