Teaching Zone: how to maintain consistent ball striking
If you struggle to hit crisp iron shots, you have to learn how to strike the ball properly. By that I mean you’ve got to meet the ground with the sole of the club just after you’ve made contact with the ball – how you make the divot. When I’ve worked with club golfers lacking confidence in striking irons, I’d use this drill. Try it, because it doesn’t get much better than the feeling when you hit pure iron shots.

1. Tee it high
Push a tee into the ground so half-an-inch is showing above the turf. Swing the club, clipping the top of the tee with the sole. Then add a ball – you should still find yourself swinging freely as you are not focusing intensely on the ball.

2. Now press it down
After a few minutes clipping the tee at half-an-inch, push it right into the turf so it is just visible to the rear of the ball. Remember, you’re still focusing on striking the tee – even though the ball is there. If you want, you can start again without the ball.

3. The Result
Hitting the tee helps you groove the descending path you want into the back of the ball. It’s a very simple and cheap drill that takes the tension out of the arms and trains your brain to squeeze the ball between turf and club face.

Impressive debut for Paul Dunne in San Diego
Playing under a sponsors invite Dunne managed a birdie on his final hole on Monday ensuring a tied 13th finish and earning himself a payday of over $120,000. Shortly after that he received further good news when it was confirmed he would receive a sponsors invite into this week’s Waste Management Phoenix Open.
“Chuffed” tweeted Dunne of that invite,although he was entitled to feel mighty chuffed too about his first appearance on the US circuit. Shame on the European tour for not extending
him an invite into any of the recent events held in the Desert Swing. 

European Tour: 
Omega Dubai Desert Classic-Two time champion and favourite Rory McIlroy represents little value this week,better value can be found each way on Alexandro Canazares at 100/1.

PGA Tour: 
Charles Howell at 50/1 represents some decent each way value.
