  From the golf manager
 Joe Sepesy


Happy spring to everyone!

Over the past month, we have successfully finished installing our new Dave Pelz Syn Lawn Tee Strike and Syntipede golf mats. The shorter mat is the "Tee Strike," which allows you to put a tee in anywhere and practice that drive or long iron shot as well as get a real feel for fairway experience, and the longer style, similar to the rough, lets you practice those annoying lies where the grass catches the club first. Soon to arrive are 800 dozen Low Impact range balls and our new Wittek range ball washer to enhance the driving range experience.

We have purchased 10 sets of rental clubs from TaylorMade. There will be 6 sets of men's and 4 sets of ladies'. They will consist of both right-handed and left-handed clubs. These are the latest in technology in shafts, club heads, and irons.

Looking ahead, the longer and warmer days will soon be the norm, and our Saturday and Sunday events, as well as the Sundowners, will be right on schedule over the balance of the year. We are very fortunate to have a tournament-style course and encourage everyone, no matter what their skill level, to come out and enjoy a beautiful day of practicing, playing a round, or just enjoying a drink on the patio.



 
  Message from the Grounds Superintendent
 Andre Cannonier

Dear Members, I hope you are enjoying this wonderful golf weather!

Firstly, a message from my team to say a HUGE thank you to all the members for their annual donation. They are most appreciative and wanted to make sure I shared this directly with you. "We want to let them know that we are moving forward with making their golfing experience the best it can be, and we thank them for their patience and understanding."

Secondly, here are some bullet points of the project work to be started this month.
Cart path root remediation. Tree roots will be removed from crossing under the cart paths, making for a smoother ride for carts.
Work will be started on the 12th fairway to fix a major leak in the irrigation pipe.
Steps on #4 will be opened up for use and the road fixed below.
 
That is what we will be working on this month, in addition to regular maintenance.

And finally, we wish all the best to Llewellyn Smith, who has retired after over 20 years of working at the property.

Thank you, and happy golfing.

We hope that this will offer more flexibility to accommodate all our golfing members.

  What's better than a hole-in-one?
 Two holes-in-one!

Holes-in-one are a rare event!

However, at Tuckers Point we have seen a few lately and would like to acknowledge those skilled golfers who have beat the odds.


Chris Conroy from Madison NJ, got a hole-in-one at Tuckers Point on hole #14 using a 6 iron. With a distance of 175 yards on October 30, 2021.


Nathaniel Holder from Bermuda, got a hole-in-one at Tuckers Point on hole 8, with a distance of 170 yards on January 21,2022.

Congratulations again! If you’ve had a hole-in-one, let us know!

  Stretch for a better game
 Your hips don't lie

Strong, flexible muscles can change your game. Tight muscles can ruin it.


When your hip muscles are tight, they limit the rotational force you need for a full, powerful swing. Flexibility in your hip flexors and quads allow for your hips and pelvis to hold the correct posture and proper rotation of your spine and hips.

   Together we can build
To identify where your strengths and weaknesses are, you need to come for a swing assessment. Once we’ve established a baseline, we can work on strengthening you and improving your game.

Get me started

If you engage in these exercises, you agree that you do so at your own risk and assume all risk of injury to yourself.


 
  The role of the hips
 How much do your hips rotate
 in the golf swing?


According to research conducted by the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI), tour players will rotate their hips clockwise at least 45°, and up to 60° on the backswing, and the same amount anti-clockwise up the point of impact.  

How much do your hips rotate clockwise on the backswing, and where are they at impact? Here’s an exercise to

Improve hip rotation


“Good hip rotation is critical to your ability to keep the club on plane. That improves not just clubhead and ball speed, it improves your consistency and accuracy.”
 


   Get started now
But what matters is your golf swing and the constraints of you body. Then  how much we can improve your consistency and accuracy by improving your hip action. Looking at your setup and then how the shoulders and hips work together is a great place to start an assessment.
