Uihlein fires New Course Record at the Bay Club

Tuesday, 12. August 2014 17:14

PeterUihlein2014European Tour Professional, Peter Uihlein was home in Mattapoisett for a few weeks rehabbing from a mid season injury and appears to be finding his form as he broke the Bay Club course record firing a 63 on Friday, August 8.  Playing along with members Mike Hiller and John Lees and Head Professional, Greg Yeomans this friendly game seemed to bring out the best in everyone.  Peter birdied four in a row on holes 3 – 6 and with one bogey on the front turned at 32.  Throw in birdies on 11 and 13 and Peter was now 5 under with 4 to play.  Heading home into the strong afternoon southwest wind, Peter birdied 15, 16 and then rolled in a 6 footer on 18 to cap off his 63. Almost seven years to the day (August 5, 2007) Greg fired the previous course record of 65.  And guess who was in his group that day, that’s right Peter. What goes around comes around.

Great playing Peter and good luck on the home stretch of the season. Click here to view the old and new course record.

Bay Club Head Professional named, 2014 NEPGA Golf Professional of the Year!

Friday, 18. April 2014 13:02

Greg_HeadshotCongratulations to Head Golf Professional Greg Yeomans who was recently named the 2014 New England PGA Golf Professional of the Year. This award is the highest honor bestowed upon a PGA professional. This honor signifies Greg’s leadership at the Bay Club and within the entire New England golf community. Greg received his award this week in front of a large audience of fellow PGA professionals at the 2014 NEPGA Section Spring Meeting at Andover Country Club. This recognition acknowledges him for his continued professionalism both at the Bay Club and throughout the New England Section and Cape Cod Chapter.

As we know, Greg has won many events at the Chapter and Section level and has been a 5 time recipient (consecutively) of the Wessner Award given to the Cape Cod Chapter Player of the Year, however this recent award recognizes Greg for his professional achievement in ALL areas of being a golf professional. Greg has served as the Cape Cod Chapter’s Tournament Chairman as well as their President. During his tenure, the Chapter experienced increased participation and renewed enthusiasm. Greg has been a member of the Section Tournament Committee for seven years and has chaired the committee for the last three. The Tournament Committee Chairman is also a sitting member of the Section Board of Directors, and Yeomans has been a welcomed addition in the Board Room. Greg has also been on the NEPGA Junior Golf Committee for four years and two years on the NEPGA Communications Committee.

Upon hearing the news, Yeomans commented: “Clearly I was honored and humbled when I received the phone call from President Kelley.” Yeomans was actually traveling on a Member Golf Trip in Puerto Rico when he received the first missed call from President Kelley. “I was unfortunately unable to return his call until my return, and to be honest, a call from the President usually meant there was a Section tournament issue. I was bracing myself for the next tournament issue when President Kelley started the conversation by saying: ‘on behalf of the 1000 PGA members and apprentices of the New England Section, I would like to congratulate you on being named the 2014 Golf Professional of the Year!’  After a brief moment to absorb what he had just said it was without question the best news/award I had ever received in my professional career” said Yeomans.  “I will cherish this award and am honored to represent the NEPGA as its Professional of the Year.”

An NEPGA awards banquet honoring Greg, along with other section award winners will be scheduled later this fall.

Congratulations Greg!

Mental Golf Game Advice by Dr. Adam Naylor

Monday, 31. March 2014 0:00

NaylorPicOutside SmallDr. Adam Naylor returns to the Bay Club for his 3rd season to work with members and teaching professionals on maximizing performance and enjoyment on the course and courts. As the golf season in New England returns, he reminds golfers not to forget to get your mental game back up to par.  Perhaps the best way to do this is to re-lay the foundation of your pre-shot routine.  The pre-shot routine is more than a bunch of entertaining tics and twitches, but rather purposeful actions that allow your mind to focus on the shot in front of you and your body to feel settled enough for a fluid swing.  Too often an intentional routine is left as an afterthought and golfers rarely reap its mental-emotional benefits.

A solid pre-shot routine should have three core elements – planning, settling the body, focusing on the target – and conclude with a trusting swing.  By slowing down on the range and around the practice areas, a player can purposefully get their routine ready for the course.  Here are three simple steps to rebooting your routine:

Plan – Take a moment to talk through the shot you are about to hit.  How far will it fly?  Where will it land?  How much will it roll?  Where do you hope it stops?

Settle – Develop an action to allow you to drop the tension from your body when addressing the ball.  A huge exhale lets go of tension.  Dropping your shoulders allows looseness to join your swing.  Letting your knees drop you into an athletic position gets you ready to unleash a fluid swing.  Pick one and practice it.

Target – Using your imagination to fill your head with your target helps you transition from swing thoughts to swings that throw the ball to your target.  Vividly seeing the target (or line of the putt when on the green) in your mind’s eye allows you to focus on the right thing at the right time.

Just like practicing your swing, practicing your pre-shot routine is important if it is to show up during competitive rounds.  Like an anchor that keeps a boat safe on stormy waters, the pre-shot routine keeps the golfer from drifting off course during the successes and stresses of each round. 

Dr. Adam Naylor leads Telos Sport Psychology Coaching and is a clinical assistant professor at Boston University.   His roots run deep in both golf and tennis.   Adam is currently the mental game consultant for the International Junior Golf Academy, the Lendl Junior Tennis Academy, and the Junior Select golf program.  His clients have traveled the country and globe to compete in club to amateur  to major championships.  Adam is the author of A Quick 9 for the Mind: Reflections from Public Links to the US Open, and a part of the American Junior Golf Association “U” faculty.

Golf Tip/Advice from Head Golf Professional Greg Yeomans

Monday, 27. January 2014 9:00

How can I be ready for the new season when there is snow on the ground?

Stretch-MateWith the arrival of winter, Head Golf Professional Greg Yeomans offers members some tips to prepare for the 2014 golf season without playing any rounds.  The first suggestion is to do lots of stretching.  This can be done utilizing the TRUE Stretch offered at the Fitness Center.  Once we stop certain activities such as golfing on a regular basis, we get tight and our swing can become restrictive or too short.  This can lead to timing and swing flaws.  Because  I don’t play from November through March, I make sure I stay loose by doing stretches.  

In addition, members are able to practice their swing at the Indoor Golf Center located onsite in the Cart Barn.  The hitting bays and simulator create a perfect environment to work on your fundamentals.  Whether you need to make a grip change, improve your posture or fix your swing path, utilizing the simulator can help you achieve all of these goals.  The worst thing you can do is to be sedentary.  IndoorGolfCenterGreg suggests you stay loose by stretching and if nothing else, hitting some balls to maintain your timing and rhythm so you are ready to start the new season. And if you need some professional advice, Fitness Director Dave Maloney at the Fitness Center or Greg Yeomans at the Golf Pro Shop are happy to arrange a private appointment and work with you to keep you flexible and in shape during the winter months.
