The one thing all great players have in common is they can all putt really well. If you don't putt well you won't win! Tiger started to putt like everyone else and stopped winning, I think the high flying 8 Iron didn't help from Mrs Woods also.
Some great players struggled with the driver and some were not great strikers of the ball. But if you can putt you have a chance of doing well.
If you are struggling with any aspect of your game, why not come and see me.

Williams takes centre Stage
Congratulations to Peter Williams on winning the Commonwealth Salver, day 1 of the Stage Challenge Cup with a fine score of nett 64. Well done Peter, great playing.
The ladies put together a fine team to take on the clubs juniors. They battled through the wind and rain but the Juniors came out on top with a combined Stableford score of 217 to the ladies 172.
Well done, Dean Jeeves will be proud
Bring on the Ryder Cup!
For scheduling reasons, the final Major of the season was on us pretty quickly at the weekend – but the 98th PGA Championship delivered a thrilling finale.
There was a danger that with events in New Jersey coming so soon after The Open at Royal Troon, the tournament wouldn’t have the same buzz, but eventual winner Jimmy Walker and defending champion Jason Day provided a dramatic ending to the Major season.
Day’s stunning approach to 18, which set up eagle put the pressure on Walker, but he held his nerve to capture his first Major title.
So, that’s that. Well, not quite, because we still have the Olympics to look forward to, and no matter what your opinion on that, it will be interesting to see how it pans out.
Then, it’s the big one! It’s less than two months to go until Team Europe takes on the US at Hazeltine National Golf Club. The Americans will have another new Major winner in their side after Walker’s recent triumph, and with Dustin Johnson claiming his first Major this year as well, things are shaping up nicely – it could well be a classic.
