Wimbledon Park Golf club PGA Golf Professional
I went along to Cuddington golf club last week to watch our own Hyunji Kim playing in the county junior championships. I am so pleased to report back that she shot 7 over gross in round one and 9 over gross in round two.
Hyunji had her 11th birthday just two weeks ago.
She won the under 13s and she also won the whole thing, bringing her handicap down to 11.6.
The professional shop are so very proud of her. The county are all talking about her and Wimbledon Park golf club, what an advert.
If you have a youngster who would like to get into golf, why not bring them down to the club, or click here to get in touch and we can discuss the best options for your children.

With just one month to go until this year's Ryder Cup and the team is now confirmed. European captain Darren Clarke's three Ryder Cup picks are Martin Kaymer, Lee Westwood and Thomas Pieters. I suppose we could have picked Lee Westwood based on his past experience and his performance in the majors this year.
Could Clarke have done anything but pick Thomas Pieters after he request he play with him in last week's Made in Denmark event where Pieters shot a first round -8 under par and then went on to win the tournament. This came on the back of his 4th place finish at the Rio Olympic games.
However Martin Kaymer's selection could have been seen the one debatable one, but if you recall he did hole the winning put in 2012 and has valuable experience.
So a mix of youth and experience seems to be the case here with 6 (six) rookies on the European side. Let's hope we can look forward to some more great golf just as we saw at Medinah Country Club in 2012 when it was last in America.
Developing your match play mentality
In the lead up to this year's Ryder Cup we thought we'd share three top tips to help you become a better match play golfer. Some of you hardened match play stalwarts probably have a few tricks up your sleeve. Nonetheless, here's our top three:
1. Control your body language
Reacting badly to a poor shot will fill your opponent with confidence. You need to give the impression that you're in control, so take time between shots to collect yourself and focus on emitting positive body language.
2. Expect to hole out
You should expect to hole out - always. If you're expecting gimmes, this is something a canny opponent will pick up on. A positive attitude to holing out is the way forward.
3. Consider the situation
There's no point in playing the safe option if your opponent has stuck one in close. Likewise, if they've found water with their approach, for example, why go on the attack? Play for the middle of the green and a safe two-putt will normally do the job.
These tips may sound simple, but in the heat of battle it's easy to forget what match play is all about.
