09-06-2006: Turk’s Turf

Just another quick reminder about top dressing and overseeding. The action
will be starting on Monday morning. Hopefully, the weather will provide
us with favorable conditions. Please bear with us on the plugging.

Upcoming events
Sunday the 10th Ryder Cup Type Tourney will be held starting at 12:45 p.m.
Two-person teams, with first nine scramble and second nine alternate shot
(both hit tee shot), flighted by handicap. Call 461-1849.

Pointer of Week
Build confidence in putting. An excellent drill to obtain a better stroke
– and a true confidence builder – is to place five balls 1 foot apart in
a straight line to the hole. Use the left arm only, putt the first ball in
the hole and continue until you miss. If you miss, start over from the
beginning. When you make five in a row, you are on the right track.

Rule of Week

The Spirit of the Game: Unlike many sports, golf is played, for the most
part, without the supervision of referee or umpire. The game relies on the
integrity of the individual to show consideration for other players and
abide by the rules. This is “The Spirit of the Game.”
