Golf Leagues getting ready for playoffs

Posted

Local Sullivan County Golf leagues are nearing the end of regular season play and some have already set up their league playoff schedule. 

League play has the first winners of the 2022 campaign, with Chuck Husson IV and Chuck Husson III winning the Twin Village Monday Men’s League. Their 197.5 points were enough to best the second place team by half a point.

In the Tuesday Night Par league at the Swan Lake Golf & Country Club Tanous and Wilhelm lead the league with 110.0 wins while second place sees Fanning and Marciano with 102.5 wins.

In the Tuesday Men’s league at Tarry Brae another close race with Yaun & Gilmore in first (167.0), Green and Garcia in second with 165.0 and Bonsick & Cassevah in third place with 160.0 points. 

Another tight race in the Sullivan Travel league between Sullivan and DeVantier in first place with 188.0 wins followed by Thomas and Husson in second place with a 185.5 record. 

Makes the leagues much more competitive with the top teams battling it out for championships.

 

Golf Tip by Robert Menges

How to start your Downswing to become more consistent.

To start your downswing, you want to feel as though your hands stay at the top of the back swing and your front leg starts the downswing. Of course, this won’t happen but that’s the feeling you should have.

You should also experiment with a different part of your front leg to start your downswing. I recommend using your front knee or your front hip. So simply swing back as normal and then feel as though your hands do nothing because it should be your front knee or hip that pulls your downswing into action.

A good drill to get this feeling is to swing back as normal but pull your front foot in so it touches your back foot at the top of the back swing. And then to start your downswing simply move your front foot into its normal position and swing through.

This will help to teach you the correct chain of events for the downswing.
