Sentosa Golf Club (Serapong Course), Singapore

Dec 30th
2013

Designed by world-renowned golf course designer Ronald Fream, The Serapong Course was opened in 1982 and measures 6,493 metres from the championship tee. A challenging par-72, it is one of the top five championship courses in Asia and home of the prestigious Barclays Singapore Open.

Following an extensive refurbishment in 2007, Sentosa Golf Club’s Serapong course has again become Singapore’s most stunning layout, and one of the best in all Asia. The lengthening of the course, as well as the addition of considerable new bunkering, revamped greens, square-cut tee-boxes and a few strategically placed palms, have contributed to making the Serapong a tougher all-round proposition.  But wait, there’s more…

Golf Books #122 (Hit Down Dammit!: The Key to Golf)

Dec 24th
2013

Most golfers have difficulty with the concept of hitting down at the ball to make it fly. Surprisingly, a great many players surveyed did not even know you need to hit down to get the ball up in the air. Hit Down Dammit! concisely explains the concept – and the technique – of hitting down at the golf ball for proper trajectory, increased backspin, much improved distance, proper divot taking, and best of all: consistent shotmaking. If you are inadvertently – or intentionally – hitting up at the ball, Hit Down Dammit! is for you.

If you are a seasoned amateur who has inexplicably “plateaud” – just cannot seem to get to the next level despite lessons and/or acquiring a library of books and videos – Hit Down Dammit! is for you. Symptoms of hitting up include (but are not limited to): – topping the ball – skulling the ball – pushing the ball – slicing the ball – poor distance – difficulty getting off back foot – poor backspin – no divot – fat divots – chunking the ball – thin/fat chip shots – roofing the ball with your driver – inability to hit long irons and/or fairway woods – good shots followed immediately by poor shots Hitting down at the golf ball is not a new concept, but it is a hitherto poorly explained (or completely avoided) concept.

All pros agree on the need to hit down, so there is no debate there. Even Tiger Woods, in his 306 page “How I Play Golf”, states the need to hit down at the ball – but does not explain how. Hit Down Dammit! does. Learn to hit down, watch the ball go up, and your scores go down. But wait, there’s more…
