This Week's Featured Golf Hole

As part of our Player Profile Series we ask the Players to tell us their favourite hole from across the Golf Courses in Wiltshire, this is the choice of this week's Player.

Cumberwell Blue Course Hole 26

Steve’s Favourite Hole is Hole 26 at Cumberwell Park

Par 3


What can you say about the 26th hole?

One of the finest risk and reward holes you will ever find.

If the pin is tucked anywhere near the left side you will need to hit close to the lake for a good chance of a birdie or even a par.

Bale out right and you could have a monster putt.

From the back tees this hole is formidable where anything less than perfect will find a watery grave.

The Performance Zone

Each week we share a tip from a Golf Professional, Coach or Equipment specialist to help you improve your game, from Curing the Shanks to Choosing the right Driver

This week PGA Professional Danny Maude shares some tips to be more consistent with your chipping

In this golf lesson Danny shares what is quite possibly the easiest way to chip a ball on to the green I’ve ever seen.

Chipping around the green can be the source of frustration for so many golfers but I guarantee you will never see an easier way to chip a golf ball than this.

Here’s what you are going to learn:

1. Chipping is not that different to putting you simply use a club that has more loft – Putting with loft

2. Every golf shot is an arc and it’s simply a matter of where you strike the ball on that arc and with what loft that will determine contact and flight

3. So to be great at chipping you have to have a chipping technique that is great at delivering the desired loft every time.
