It will take place in the clubhouse at 7.30pm.

This week’s winner in the 200 Club weekly draw for £100 is J Lucas.

Tony’s Tip:

THIS week B is for Balance, a necessity in playing good, consistent golf.

Make sure that your weight is evenly spread between your feet and neither too much towards your heels nor your toes.

Try to have the feeling that your weight is between the insides of your feet, and although it moves from side to side during the swing it never moves to the outside of the feet.

A really good exercise, one of my favourites, is to practise swinging a 7 iron with your feet together.

When you get the hang of it, hit some shots this way – you will soon find out if you are being too violent with your body.
