My first TNT Social was a success! As you know, City Golf is going through some changes and we are down to 3 simulators, so are only able to cater for 12 teams (24 players). I was in a flat panic because we had 13 teams down on the morning of the social, but fortunately (and unfortunately) a couple of guys pulled out. A few shuffles and shifts and we finally had 10 teams smashing it around Bay Hill’s back nine. The scoring was looking very good, but coming down the stretch I saw a few complete disasters. It really illustrates the importance of a swing that holds up under pressure. This will increase your consistency and confidence, especially under high pressure situations. The object of the TNT Social is to have fun, but it is still a competitive environment, and all players should really try and improve on their fundamentals of tournament golf. With my background in sports psychology, I have a number of little tricks to help you keep it together coming down the stretch. Book a lesson and come and pick my brain!
Guy Young and Steve Sablatnig were a couple under par with their alternate shot score, but as I mentioned there was a bit of a meltdown coming down the stretch. They finished on even par to win by 2 shots from Al Guthrie and Kevan Bartley. Mark Jones and Iain Pearce rounded up the top 3.
The “Nearest the Pin for Charity” event was won by Steve Sablatnig who knocked it to 1.35 metres. He was on fire on Wednesday night! Even wen we finished the evening with a quiet game of BINGO, BANGO, BONGO he couldn’t put a foot wrong! Sadly he is returning to New Zealand in a couple of weeks. We wish him all of the best and we’re sad to see him go, despite him winning everything he enters at City Golf! (apologies for the quality of the photo’s)
Once again, a massive thank you to Titleist for the kind sponsorship of Pro V1 golf balls for our prizes!
I look forward to the next TNT Social. Remember to book early to avoid disappointment!
– Happy Golfing
