Rowallan 36 Hole PGA Event – 9th & 10th May, 2017

Rowallan Castle Logos on TouRowallan 36 Hole PGA Event – 9th & 10th May, 2017

The PGA events have been a bit later in starting due a lot more of the events being played later on this year around September and October. I think this is due to weather conditions and it being milder at that time of year compared to March and April. This might work quite well and could be the template for future seasons, especially with the winter alliance events running up to April anyway.

I had never played Rowallan Castle before and was interested to play a Colin Montgomerie course for the first time. A practise round on the Friday before definitely helped as there were a lot of holes that required specific tee shots due to well placed bunkers. Monty obviously imagined how he would have played the course and accuracy was a big part of his game.

The first day I played with Michael from Edzell and Campbell from Strathclyde Park. There was not much conversation during the game until the end of the round, but on the 1st Tee I got to chat to the guys about what I was doing as Michael was sure we’d played together before and he asked me to remind him of what I was up to these days. Always good to get in there early. When we got to the second hole I experienced some adversity that seemed to follow me through the round but when I look back on it I smile and just shake my head. I hit my ball into the hazard on the second hole which I thought may have caught up on the bank and not actually went in. As I stopped to look and crossed over the hazard I parked the trolley. While I was looking I heard Campbell shouting, ‘Vincent, your bag!’. As I stood on the other side of the burn I witnessed my bag rolling into the water and almost fully submerging without being able to do much about it. When I finally fished it out and emptied the water I then had to go back to play another ball which resulted in a 7 at the par 3. I looked on the positive side that it was a nice warm day so everything dried within a few holes. Small Mercies.
By the time I got to the 11th hole I was still only 4 over so had played all the other holes in even par and felt quite good but then experienced something that believe it or not has helped me more than anything this year. I made an 11 on the 11th hole. Yes, that is correct and yes it helped me a great deal. The hardest hole on the course has out of bounds all the way down the left of the hole and I have been fighting a slight pull recently. I tried to trust the swing but the balls just kept going out of bounds. After this experience I was still able to finish the final half a dozen holes in 1 over and mulled over how I could have prevented what happened. It wasn’t till the second day that I understood why this happened and what needed to change.

I have always been a great believer in what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger and when you read the scriptures it is filled with stories of individuals overcoming tremendous adversity to fulfil God’s purpose. My adversity is nothing compared to what they went through but it is my own personal fight and one that I try and do on my own maybe too often. I don’t give up easily and always try to keep going but as I was playing my second round with a young lad from Paisley called Euan, it became clear what I must do.
Euan is just staring out in his career, and at 17 years old I could see the enthusiasm and desire to do well. I was able to chat to him briefly regarding my role but I could see his mind was focused on the game more than anything and talking about the top professionals and how good they are. We were both playing fairly well, and I managed to make it by the 2nd hole with a dry bag! What I could see in Euan was myself 25 years ago. So eager to play well and getting very frustrated when things don’t go your way. He was being very hard on himself and openly admitted he lets bad shots get to him. As I have gotten older and hopefully a bit wiser, I am not anywhere as bad as I used to be, but from making an 11 on a hole when not playing that badly and watching Euan at his young age, I realised that I was still trying too hard and my expectations were too high for now. I need to play to my strengths and look at the best route for me, not so much how someone else does it. Everything that is worth while takes time and I know God’s plan for the ministry will work hand in hand with my own performance and the example I will set for others no matter where it is.

I encouraged Euan not to let things get to him so much as I was speaking from experience and know it will not help him to be so hard on himself. He seemed to take it well and I hope I see him again soon to keep encouraging him.

Another positive note was that I got the chance to speak with 6 of the Professionals who I was planning to invite to the Pro-Am this year and all of them responded positively to attending in September. Only a few more to speak with and then we will have our full compliment of Professionals for the event.

Please pray for myself, the Pro-Am and those mentioned in this report.

Alliance at Irvine Monday 3rd April & East v West Match Thursday 6th April 2017

Alliance at Irvine Monday 3rd April & East v West Match Thursday 6th April 2017

Logos on Tour at Bruntsfield Links

 

With both of these days so close to each other I have combined the two reports into one. The last Alliance medal round was at Irvine and the East of Scotland V West of Scotland Match is always held at Bruntsfield Golfing Society Links, Edinburgh.
Irvine as always presented a stern test with yet more wind just for a wee change. I was paired with Frank and John who were decent single figure handicappers and I remembered them from about 20 years ago playing around the amateur circuit when I was just a lad. Frank remembered me right away but I had never really met John before, only knew his name from seeing it around back then. As we got going Frank asked me what I was up to these days which gave me a good chance to share about my life and where I was with my faith. The condensed version took about 5 minutes and I think I might have tried to squeeze too much in as I could see the shell-shocked look on his face, but he seemed to take it ok. John didn’t really say much, but again we had such strong winds that day so conversation was limited.
Each of us were playing in the East v West match a couple of days after so we used the round more like a bit of practise for that with the conditions worsening as the day went on. As we finished the round we were happy to get home and looked forward to a better forecast for Edinburgh. Not much else to mention about Irvine unfortunately but we take what we can get.

Every Alliance so far this year has been the windiest day of the week bar none and it has felt like a slog every time we have been out. Thankfully when we reached Edinburgh there seemed to be a calmer clear day on the horizon and this was the first day of the season that I had not needed to wear a waterproof suit. It was still chilly, but dry and playable, and I was very thankful for that. Before play I met with Crowwood Pro, Ian Graham and his father in the clubhouse. They were also playing for the West and I was able to sit and have a bacon roll and chat about how things were going. This gave me a good chance to talk about the family, work and the ministry to which they seemed quite intrigued. A good sharing time that I wasn’t expecting.
We play foursomes in the morning and then singles in the afternoon with one of our foursome opponents. My playing partner was Jim who is friends with Frank and John. Jim and I were playing against Colin and David from the East of Scotland and right away Jim started the conversation on the first tee. He asked me where I was playing my golf out of, hence the attachment, and this was just as half a dozen people gathered round us, including Colin and David, which allowed me to speak to about 6 people at that moment about my role with the ministry and my faith. It was quite a surreal moment but its amazing how these encounters come about. Jim then commented, “So your out spreading the word then.”
As we started our match Jim began to share with me about his family and how he introduced his children to their faith as he wanted them to have a choice as to what they wanted to believe in. I explained to him that I basically ran away from my faith for such a long time because I thought that was what I wanted then, but realised what a mistake I had made. Jim definitely gave me the impression that he has a ‘faith’ but is not quite sure of which denomination to trust. I spoke about how many times as Christians we can get lost in denominations when the real faith is in the title -CHRISTian, we believe in Christ. This is the basis of our faith in God and our salvation, and if we could just see past the cloudiness of denomination what a united and powerful people we could be. A good chat.
Jim and I managed to win our match in the morning and after lunch Colin and I played singles which gave us more time to converse. Colin didn’t really go there much regarding what I had said on the first tee that morning but spoke more about golf in general and his experiences in competitive golf. I managed to throw in a couple of small bites regarding the ministry during the afternoon, but there was no continued interest or questions so I left it alone until otherwise asked. After our match, which I lost on the last hole, we gathered in the Clubhouse for the presentation and I’m pleased to say the West retained the trophy, 13-11.

A long and tiring day playing 2 rounds but well worth it and I look forward to this match next year which gives some great opportunities due to the nature of the event. Please pray for those mentioned in this report and for God’s continued blessing on the ministry. His will, not mine.

Practice like you’ll play and play like you practice

PRACTICE LIKE YOU’LL PLAY & PLAY LIKE YOU PRACTICEdemonstration

 

If You Commit Yourself To Correct Practice You Discover

  • Your performance can be improved in some way
  • You must be willing to start with the small things, when you first start to Practice your gains will be small, but they will grow.
  • There’s a price to pay to reach the next level, Sydney Howard remarked, one half of knowing what you want is what you must give up before you get it, to many of us regard practice as an essential negative experience, but it doesn’t have to be if you think of it in terms of discovery and development.
  • Perfect or Good shots?
  • Many times golfers leave shots to the greens short of the pin and feel they have miss hit the shot or taken the wrong club, I believe that many times it is because we are guilty of allowing for the perfect shot instead of our good shot, how many perfect shots do we hit in the round of golf? A perfect shot with an iron will travel between 5 to 7 yards farther than your good shot, “So Allow For Your Good Shots Most Of The Time”

Practice Makes Perfect?

We often hear or read the above quote, I believe it is misleading, it encourages us into thinking that the more we practice the more successful we are going to be, unfortunately it sometimes had the opposite effect and leads to bad habits, loss of confidence and poor results.

The following quotes Are What We Should Be Striving For:

  • “Correct Practice Makes Perfect”
  • Practice Makes Permanent” “Quality Practice Not Quantity”

The Power of Correct Practice

Bunker shot at KLM Dutch Open

When it comes to practice the Two most difficult challenges you face are,
1. Having the desire to do it.
2. Having the discipline to keep at it.
You have to be diligent in these matters, !Persevere!
It has nothing to do with talent or ability.
It is not a matter of conditions, but of choice.
But once the choice is made and practice becomes habit

  1. Two things become obvious,
    The First is a clear difference between the person who practices and the one who doesn’t.
  2. The Second thing that emerges is a winning spirit, the harder you work, the harder is becomes to surrender to things like fatigue, complacency, discouragement, criticism and all the other stuff that tries to break your stride.

Bad Habits?

So nearly holed out

On arriving at a British Open to meet with a player I had been working with for many years I found his ball control was inconsistent, he had referred to his fault check list to try and work out which area needed attention but had not come up with the answer, having discussed his thoughts and seeing him hit some shots, I reminded him about his right hand position on the club, a key point we had worked on from time to time during the previous 8 years. All levels of golfers have times when they slip back into their bad habits, it is important to know what they are and know how to correct them.

Write them down, call it your “Fault Check List” even the top players need reminding and reassuring at times, it not because they don’t know it’s because they have forgotten.

“Time for Change?”

 

“Time for Change?”

It is hard to believe that over 9000 books have been written on how
to play golf. 9000 books dedicated to trying to unlock the secrets of this elusive game. And yet despite all this advice and knowledge golf remains the most frustratingly difficult game in the world.
irish open county down
Why is that?

Are you ready to challenge some of your long held beliefs?
During my fifteen years as a Tournament Professional, I like many others, fell into the trap of believing that someone else held the secret to my success. I failed to realise that success could not be found in finding the perfect swing that would not break down under pressure. That road lead to total frustration and feelings of wanting to do something better with my time. Does this sound familiar to you?
Lessons and information taken in, hours spent practicing, yet
still no improvement in performance. Well read on and change your golfing life forever!

The first step on the road to mastery is to trust yourself and understand what it is you are doing when you attempt to
hit the ball. Where is your attention and awareness focused?

Are you thinking too much about what is a simple task?

You need to move your game away from thinking, and move it towards feeling. You see FEEL is what we use to perform all the amazing motion skills we possess. You don’t think how to walk, you FEEL how to walk. You don’t think how hard to throw the piece of paper into the bin, you FEEL how hard to throw it. And if golf is to change then it must align itself accordingly, because more information is not the answer.

Any sport that sees naturally gifted people unintentionally slice for their entire golfing lives, or that has professionals with golf games that seem to regress in direct proportion with the more they learn about its mechanics, is definitely in need of change!

So how do we move away from thinking and towards feeling?
Well, all feel begins with an objective or task.
“Throw the ball to daddy” is all that needs said to evoke an appropriate technique and start the learning process in a child, and as the skill develops so does the feel.

The issue with golf “coaching” is that it tends to be technique rather than task led.
To help explain that a little more clearly lets look at how I was introduced to two sports. Squash and golf. See if you can spot the difference.
not an easy one
GOLF – This is pretty good representation of the type of instruction that I received when I came to golf for the first time. How does it compare to yours?
1. I was told how to grip the club.
2. I was told how to stand, aim and position the ball.
3. I was told how to swing. This included lots of things such as, keeping your eye on the ball and your head down.
Your left arm straight and your swing slow. Then as I progressed it become a bit more complicated and included stuff like turning my left shoulder under my chin properly on the backswing, and that my hips had to start the downswing etc. Unfortunately it didn’t stop there, and ultimately I moved on to swing planes, wrist cock, wrist lag, width and weight transference, and it went on, and on, and on. It was real fun. NOT!
4. Then every time I got coached I was told that I would get worse before I got better.

GREAT! Just what a young man wants to hear.

SQUASH – I was given the following help with squash from one of my friends.
1. I was handed a racket and a ball.
2. I was then told the rules and objective of the game. Which was basically that ball was only allowed to bounce once before you had to hit it, and my job was to try and direct it where my opponent couldn’t get it. The serve was explained, as were the lines and tin on the walls and floor.
3. I was then asked if I fancied a game!
Darren Clarke the Ryder Cup Captain warming up
Did you spot the difference?

You see golf was full of “how to” instructions, whereas squash was all about the game or objective. In fact in squash there is no technical information whatsoever, and amazingly in golf there was no mention of the objective. The contrast is startling, and that just shouldn’t be. People constantly told me that golf was different (but it isn’t), but I accepted this belief and all the baggage that comes with it.
Now it’s time to hand it back.
My introduction to golf encouraged me to think, whereas my introduction to squash encouraged me to feel and once
you learn the appropriate feel for golf you can never lose it.
Fact, the golf ball always does what it is told. We tell the golf ball what to do via the clubface and how it’s applied to the ball.
So what are you telling the clubface?
Is your attention where it should be, that is on the clubface?
If not it needs to be.
All golfers need to be aware of the reality of what happens at impact. The golf ball will tell you this.

Let me give you an example of this.
While I was giving a golf clinic one lady hit a shot heavy, taking a big divot and the ball barely moved. I asked her “What happened there?”
She replied that she had swung too fast and lifted her head up. A nice story but unfortunately it was just a story and not reality. What did happen was she miss applied the club and caught the ground before the ball.
After bringing this to her attention I then challenged her to hit the ball without hitting the ground. After a couple of practice swings feeling a different movement to her previous attempt, she hit a shot toward her target without taking a big divot. She had changed her technique due to the task I had given her, without any information of “How To” from me.

You will find that the task will always lead to your technique and NOT the other way around.
Logos on tour
Exploring different ways of applying the club will lead to you discovering what is right for you. Golf is fun once you rid yourself of all thoughts of rights and wrongs. Taking ownership of your own game will be a massive step on the road to having more FUN while playing.
Every great player in the world plays with feel as his major sense, now it’s time for you to do the same.

Good luck and happy INSTINCTIVE golfing.

“Use your Eyes for Correct Aim”

Logos on the tartan tour at Drumpellier

Use your Eyes”

When the well-respected Scottish Coach Bob Torrance, was asked what is required to be a top coach? His immediate answer was “A Good Eye”.
At a pre-season youth coaching week at La Cala Spain, we had group meetings to discuss various points relating to course management. The overall view from the players was that club selection and nap on the green presented difficulties. Making the correct club selection to avoid either being short or long of the green, and good nap judgement again avoiding the putts being 5 – 6 feet short or long, after hearing their remarks I suggested the following.

Due to La Cala golf courses, both the fairways and the greens being undulating, my advice to them was to “Use Your Eyes” put into your calculation the slopes, they tended to concentrate too much on which club to hit the green and the nap on the greens they had not seen the undulations, the ups and the downs.
Christy O’Conner snr, in a published article, when asked by a reporter on what single piece of advice would you give to golfers, which would improve their game, his answer was
“Use your Eyes”.

Logos on Tour at the Northern Open
Analysis of Correct Aiming

1. Body muscles produce the shot.
2. The body muscles receive their instructions and initiative from the brain.
3. The brain gets its inspiration through the eyes.

Therefore when aiming look attentively not only at the ball but also at the objective point, i.e. the hole or direction flag (“take dead aim” as Harvey Pennick always asked his pupils to do) so what the eye will register clearly on the mind the objective to be accomplished, then the mind will instruct the muscles what has to be done.
Many golfers give a casual glance at the direction of play, or area, they do not focus on a certain point within that direction or area.
It takes time for the eye to adjust its focus; the brain must concentrate on a certain thing if the eye is to focus on it.
The eye must be focused on the objective point if the exact location isto be impressively registered, the brain will then have the necessary information to instruct the muscular senses to control the direction and distance.

GOLF EXPLORATION

“Golf Exploration”

Logos on Tour in Switzerland

With countless golf books, magazines and articles on how to do the perfect golf swing, no shortage of golf clubs that help you achieve that and golf teachers offering computer analysis of your swing, does it actually help us or is it like putting a fire out with petrol?

We are the common denominator and we are unique, don’t you think it is about time that you took control of your golf game and become an explorer rather than a Sherpa?

shenzen international golf

Golf has been described as a journey with no end destination, if that is the case we must ask ourselves why we have chosen to travel, it could be for a number of reasons. I would love to travel with you, to share the journey, to show you the beauty that lies within you, your untapped potential, your natural abilities that have always been there but never fully appreciated. Come walk with me, put down that rucksack full of ‘does and don’ts’ and golf myths, its time to free yourself and breathe unpolluted  golf air.

LOGOS wentworth 18th

Over the coming months we will travel and explore together how you could play this wonderful game of golf. Let’s take our first steps together, ready?
There is no such thing as right and wrong when it comes to golf swings. There are no secrets, no ideal method to follow, but there are the rules of golf and rules of golf club designs which we must conform to, but after that we are free to do what we want.

But do we?
As I said we are unique, so surely we should play golf in our own  individual way and not fall for the trap, changing what is natural to what is mechanical.

Everybody reverts back to natural movements eventually so it makes sense to use them as building blocks, something that repeats must be good news in developing consistency especially when you consider all the other variables. The biggest one is you and me.

Logos on Tour at the Dutch Open

Before true learning can take place clear understanding must be present, so you need to know how the tool (golf club) works. I am assuming you know how a golf course is set out and the objects of the different types of golf played etc. But did you know golf clubs come with two lofts on the face (angle of the face to the ground – more loft ball fly’s higher, less loft ball fly’s lower). The first loft is the one the club is made with, measured as a static loft. The second one and by far the most important is the dynamic loft, simply put: how we apply the club face as we strike the ball. It is impossible to hit a golf ball straight. Every golf ball hit has spin on it, so it will either move to the left or to the right as it travels up and down.

logos on the tartan tour at Deer Park

So let’s explore facts not fiction. The ball is stationary when we hit it, resting on either the ground or a tee peg. We are not going to be tackled and the target is not moving. We can decide when and how to hit it. The ball does not contain any energy of its own (although some people think it has a mind of its own)! So it’s up to us to apply energy in a suitable way in order to move the ball forward.

Nowhere in the job description for the golfer, does it actually say we have to help the ball in the air. The ball is designed to go in the air, the loft is designed to get it there, and it is a perfect arrangement. We need to apply the bottom of the club face to the bottom of the ball. A mixture of all these things will be too much for the ball to resist and it will willingly co-operate resulting in great happiness and pleasure for the golfer.

So here is your first bit of exploring!
Go to a golf range or your practice ground. Use a 6 or a 7 iron. 50 balls are more than enough, warm up, then choose a target and form your ball to target line (BTTL). The task is to hit golf balls as far right and left as you can from the BTTL. You are not allowed to aim the face left or right to start with and you must start from the same position, deciding before you hit the ball, your intention left or right.
You should end up with no golf balls in line with the target.
This is how you develop awareness: be aware of the feel of the golf swing and the golf shots it creates.

Practice the swing you intend to use to create the shot you intend to hit and see how close they are linked. Have fun and explore, remember there is no such thing as right and wrong, it’s about you doing suitable moves.

Made in Denmark

putting out in Denmark Marc Warren winning in DenmarkMade in Denmark Aalborg August 12 – 15

After the mid-season two week break for the USA events, that seen Rory win both, including his fourth major and move into second place on the world ranking list, just behind me, so it was back to Europe for the interestingly named Made in Denmark tournament … There has been an eleven year gap since the last championship in Denmark and the title was celebrating the vast amount of golfers produced by that small country; Thomas Bjorn etc …

Had three good Godincidences this week; Player Eddie Pepperell, is well known to one of our Logos supporters, Alastair Booth, who is the secretary at
Frilford Heath GC in Oxfordshire to which Eddie is attached, and it was good to share a courtesy car and to chat over my role and the purpose of Logos on the Tour with him for the first time …

Once again I had a good talk with a pro, when I bumped into him in the middle of Aalborg …. Do keep him in your prayers and he has just become a dad for the first time …

Our old friend “the caddie” was in philosophical mood this week and was lamenting the state of the world and his position in life compared to those embroiled in the tragedies that are going on, seemingly everywhere … keep praying for him too …

This is the beginning of a run of 8 tournaments in the next 9 weeks and a time when players can see what they need to do in the various positions they find themselves … Tense times for many …

Next week it’s Prague for the Czech Masters ….

The Open at Hoylake

The Open – Royal Liverpool GC Hoylake July 15 – 17Rory wins 2014 British Open Rory can only see birdies

As ever the Open was a mass of activity, very little of which involved anything on the Logos scene … We had arranged a bible study aimed at the players from the USA and those who play their golf there, at a local Hoylake church.  The point was that at least they would be aware Logos were still around and available.  As we thought, due to the amount of functions and events these players are “expected” to attend on such a week, the study never happened … At least they know we are still around.

This is always a busy week for the SMS team, with three separate surveys, the hosting of the industry lunch at the Open, endless meetings with current and potential clients and there was the PGA function on the Wednesday evening which one of the Logos board members, Keith McIntosh attended with me …. A great networking place is the Open.

There has been a good deal of follow up chats from the memorial talk, some brief, some longer so do keep that in your prayers for the upcoming stretch of events … There is now a little gap until early August when Denmark kicks off another series of 6 tournaments ….

Let us continue to; “ .. Walk by the Spirit ..” and so “ .. Walk in the way of love ..”  [Gal 5:16 & Eph 5:2]

Tuesday was one of those days when every corner I turned, every time I looked around and wherever I went I bumped into someone who was ready to talk … Those days are rare and treasured and an assurance of your prayers that both go ahead and follow me …

Those of you who have been praying for; a Scottish golfer, two caddies, a photographer and the pending memorial service for the caddie who died, “Mac,” then know that all these were in amongst this week’s Godincidences ….

Topics for prayer;
