"Really enjoyed the clinic so thanks for doing it.  Used your pitching technique twice yesterday using different wedges to adjust the distance and got up and down both times so I'm already seeing some benefit." T.Newell

'The Putting Hour'
 
Fri 5th Oct 2.30-3.30pm
or Mon 15th Oct 2-3pm at Akarana Golf Course

Max. 5 players       Practice balls provided  
Video presentation to analyse your putting action

ONLY $60!
I will critique your putting stroke and give you some drills to take away to perfect your technique.  'The Putting Hour' is about teaching you the fundamentals needed to increase your chances of becoming a better putter.

After recently completing the training course with Phil Kenyon, I'm ready to pass on new skills to my clients.  Using the lessons I also gained from Scotty Cameron – the leading putting designer for Titleist and the maker of Tiger Wood’s putters; and Stan Utley who is well renowned on the PGA tour as a short game guru and now author, I will show you what the mechanics of a successful stroke are. 

You will get Trackman analysis ... so if you have attended 'The Putting Hour' previously, this is something new.  This will potentially be the most precise analysis you will have in Putting ... made simple by
WG!


 
'The Chipping Hour'
 
Fri 19th Oct 2.15-3.15pm
(
fully booked) or Mon 5th Nov 1.30-2.30pm at Akarana Golf Course

Max. 4 players       Practice balls provided  
Video presentation to analyse your chipping action.

ONLY $60!
Designed for all level of players, this hour teaches you the basic chip and strike to get you nicely on the green. Anyone can get great at chipping, if they understand the basics!

We will discuss your club selection, the process you need to go through mentally and physically, chipping technique, how to control your distances ... and much more.


 
 
'The Pitch' is back!
 
Wed 7th Nov 2-3.30pm at JK's World of Golf

Max. 5 players
ONLY $99!
WG
welcomes you to 'The Pitch'. This is designed for all levels of players and has no limit to what you can get out of this session.

My goal for students is to get a clear idea of what you can achieve from these distances, which undoubtedly are the biggest chance for
you to shave shots off your scorecard.
 
My playing and experience in tournament golf at the highest level for over 15 years have taught me the importance of this part of a player’s game.

In this clinic:
We will discuss your current wedge set up.  Are the gaps set up correctly in the different wedges you have for maximizing your distance control?
How do you control your distances? Deal with different lies of the golf ball and how that will react on the green.  Controlling your flight in the wind.

And much more!


WG will provide the golf balls and this will be conducted on grass to targets.



'The Putting Hour 2'       **Brand new for you!**

Fri 9th Nov 2.30-3.30pm at Akarana

Max. 5 players       Practice balls provided  
Video presentation to analyse your putting action

ONLY $60!
If you have previously attended a WG 'The Putting Hour', this advanced putting clinic is the next step and has been designed for you. 

WG will introduce you to the next level of putting.  Register for this clinic for a more advanced look at your technical side of this stroke as we delve into more of the mechanics of putting.

WG Academy

We have had a great year so far with enormous enthusiasm from this group of young golfers, aged between 13-17 years of age. Coaching is held for my WG Academy twice per week and this group are showing great commitment. We've had a few new faces join us this in 2018 and I am impressed with their potential.




 
 
 
 




 
 

The WG boys are on fire!
      
One of our WG champions Daniel Pearce has been ripping up the fairways, winning the Akarana Barfoot & Thompson Open and claiming his third Jennian Homes Charles Tour Title.   WG wishes you the very best for the fourth leg of the tour starting at Muriwai Golf Course.

Congratulations Daniel

 
Congratulations Harry ... you did it!

WG's Harry Bateman claimed his maiden victory in October on the Jennian Homes Charles Tour by an eight-shot margin (yes 8 shots!) at the Jones Jones Steel Harewood Open.  After previously finishing runner-up three times playing the Charles Tour, Harry wasn't going to let victory slip away this time.  Awesome result Harry!


                                           
 

It was a busy time working with Ryan Fox in the UK and Germany in June with temperatures hitting 31 ... very unlike the UK!

We practiced at Ryan's home course in London, aptly named Fox Hills in Cobham, Surrey approx 40 minutes outside of London.  Fox Hills is a 36 hole complex witht a hotel, manor house, 9 hole par 3 course with a full driving range, a spa, gym and 5 swimming pools.  It's a great place to be welcomed.

Then it was off to the BMW International in Munich, Germany ... ready for the week ahead!

Ryan Fox normal day:
