    This is how to putt

    Some of our club's junior academy members showing us all how to putt

    And exhausting watching our budding 13yr old lass (most improved under 17 girl 2017) practicing athleticism

    to infinity and beyond...

    ...well from 10.0 to 9.4 this year would be nice.

    And last medal of the year (Oct) saw me play to handicap but CSS was +1 so that was me down 0.2 from 8.3 to 8.1

    That is some swing on the second video. However, there looks to be something missing from the end of her club

    Do you know what her handicap is, she looks like she will be good if she sticks with it.

    She's off 7 - started playing three years ago. We have great hopes for her - a month ago she won the title of England's most improved girl golfer. Off 9 at the time she knocked it round @Richart's place (Blackmoor in Hampshire) in level par.

    She looks a great talent and hopefully will improve as she matures.

    What she is doing there is speed training. Basically swinging the light stick really fast teaches the body and arms to move quicker apparently.

    Seen it being taught quite a bit on YouTube. Never given it a go out of laziness.

    Awesome. Think I was in my 30's when I had my first level par round.

    Hope she goes on to do good things. You don't get a swing like that by accident.
