Great clubs at an incredibly affordable price
With just one month to go until this year's Ryder Cup, the European team is now confirmed. European captain Darren Clarke named his three Ryder Cup picks on Tuesday afternoon:
I suppose we could have picked Lee Westwood based on his past experience and his performance in the majors this year.
Could Clarke have done anything but pick Thomas Pieters after he requested to play with him in last week's Made in Denmark event where Pieters shot a first round 8-under-par and then went on to win the tournament? This came on the back of his 4th place finish at the Rio Olympic Games. Talk about form.
Martin Kaymer's selection, however, could be seen as the debatable one. However if you recall, he did hole the winning putt in 2012 and has valuable experience to offer.
So a mix of youth and experience seems to be the case here with six rookies on the European side. Let's hope we can look forward to some more great golf just as we saw at Medinah Country Club in 2012 when it was last in America.
Developing your match play mentality
In the lead up to this year's Ryder Cup, we thought we'd share three top tips to help you become a better match play golfer. Some of you hardened match play stalwarts probably have a few tricks up your sleeve. Nonetheless, here's our top three:
- Control your body language - Reacting badly to a poor shot will fill your opponent with confidence. You need to give the impression that you're in control, so take time between shots to collect yourself and focus on emitting positive body language
- Expect to hole out - You should expect to hole out - always. If you're expecting gimmes, this is something a canny opponent will pick up on. A positive attitude to holing out is the way forward
- Consider the situation - There's no point in playing the safe option if your opponent has stuck one in close. Likewise, if they've found water with their approach, for example, why go on the attack? Play for the middle of the green and a safe two-putt will normally do the job
These tips may sound simple, but in the heat of battle it's easy to forget what match play is all about. If you are looking for a course management lesson that might help you play better golf in any competition, click here to request yours.
