Tom Minshull, our Head PGA Golf Professional here at The Grove is passionate about creating an informative and enjoyable learning environment for golfers of all levels – from those taking their first steps in the game to elite amateurs and professionals. Take a look at the short videos below where, he introduces you to four of his favourite game improvement tips.
1. The Greenside Chip
Tom’s played a great shot into the 18th green, but his ball has collected in one of The Grove’s infamous run-off areas. Here he shows how to pitch it back up the green to give yourself a chance of par.
2. The Fairway Bunker Shot
One of the most feared shots for the amateur player, Tom shows you how to play the long bunker shot into a distant green. Follow his advice and get yourself out of trouble and onto the putting surface every time.
3. The ‘left-handed’ Pitch
We’ve all been here. Our ball has nestled up against a tree and there is no room to make a swing. Tom has a cunning little trick to help you out.
4. Sloping Fairway Lie
You’ve hit a great drive down the fairway but you are left with a tricky lie that needs careful consideration of you are to hit the green in two, and give yourself a birdie chance. Tom shows you the way, on The Grove’s 2nd Hole.
