Owen Dawson Golf Instruction Fall Newsletter

2012 Fall Newsletter
Hello From The Lesson Tee!!
The summer is almost over and I hope everyone has enjoyed it. The career change I made this year to full-time Director of Instruction has been a good one - it's been a record year for me. The support and interest in my golf programs, lessons, and instructional website has allowed me to be successful at what I enjoy doing most - teaching golf. I look forward to continuing to improve the teaching program here at the Country Club of Maryland.
I'm gearing up for after-school junior clinics and adult clinics this fall.  There is something for everyone and hopefully you can find time in your schedule to join me on the course or lesson tee.

Golf Tip of the Month
When setting up to hit a chip-shot make sure your spine is vertical (shoulders level) and 75-80% of your weight is in your left leg.
Players, in an attempt to put more weight left, actually bump their hips to the left and their spine tilts away from the target, dropping their right shoulder.

Try these 5 steps the next time your practicing your chipping:
1. Vertical Spine (level shoulders)
2. 75-80% of weight in left leg
3. Weight stays left until finish
4. Short backswing with minimal wrist set
5. Finish with club head below knee level
