1-20-2007: Tuck’s Turf

By Howie Tucker

This week I will be off to Albuquerque for a high school workshop for the upcoming high school golf season.

Feb. 5: Start of Season for Golf Team
For all students who are planning to be part of the golf team, the season begins Feb 5.
Please contact me at 461-1849 before then to get organized for practice and before competition begins.
Next week, I will have both golf schedules ready!

Rule of Week
Provisional ball: A provisional ball is a ball played under Rule 27-2, for a ball that may be lost outside a water hazard or may be out of bounds.

Pointer of Week
Simplify your alignment: A simple and repeating swing starts with good alignment.
Check it every time you practice by placing clubs along the ground on either side of the ball, aimed directly at your target.
Then place clubs on either side of your feet, parallel to the target-line clubs, to help you square up your feet, hips and shoulders.
