Bay Club Pros Hold Their Own!

Thursday, 2. July 2020 14:52

Pro_AssistantcroppedThe 2020 Acushnet Golf NEPGA Pro-Assistant was played on Monday, June 29 at the Bay Club and the Bay Club teams proudly represented the host Club.  This is the 13th consecutive year the Bay Club has hosted this section and player favorite event.

John Paesani and partner Greg Yeomans tied for first place with a seven under par, 64 in the team better ball competition.  They tied with Kernwood Country Club (Dully/Bramlett).  John and Greg played bogey free golf and, for the most part, each had looks on every hole, which is always the key in team golf.  Birdies at 2, 6, 7, 10, 12, 13 and 15 along with a key par saver at 5 propelled them to the top spot.  This is the second time John and Greg have won the Pro-Assistant title, having previously won in 2017.  Greg also won with Tracy Djerf in 2012.

The Bay Club team of Ben Egan and Kyle Dobbs rebounded from a slow start to rip up the back nine with a team better ball of 30 to post a four under par 67 and finish tied for seventh.  The duo, bogeyed the opening two holes but rallied with birdies on 6, 10, 11, 13, 15, 16 and 18 to turn things around and finish strong.  The teams had an especially impressive moment on the 13th hole when all four approach shots were within 8 feet of the cup as they surrounded the flag.  All in all, a T1 and T7 finish for the Bay Club against 81 other teams from 50+ Clubs around New England is an impressive feat.

The Bay Club teams were cheered on by a large member contingency that certainly kept the host pros excited and motivated to perform.  Greg commented that on the 4th hole it felt like one of the Club’s member shoot-out events, having all the members gathered around.  And it was especially extraordinary to see so many members return to watch the finish following a 90-minute rain delay.  The staff was very appreciative of the member spectators and as always values their support.

Congrats John, Greg, Ben and Kyle on the solid showing!

Greg Yeomans Captures NEPGA Cape Cod Match Play Championship Title!

Thursday, 30. October 2014 15:03


Playing in front of a gallery of club members, the Bay Club’s Greg Yeomans defeated fellow Bay Club professional John “Pi” Paesani 1 up in the final match of the NEPGA Cape Cod Match Play Championship Thursday, October 30 on their home course. This win gives Greg his third consecutive title and seventh overall since 2005.

Greg took an early 1 up lead on the second hole with a par as John made bogey.  The two then halved the next four holes before Greg made birdie hitting his approach out of the left fairway bunker on number 7 to 3 feet leading to a win and 2 up lead.  The pair halved the next 8, 9 and 10 before Greg hit a poor tee shot into the fescue left leading to at least a bogey while John routinely hit the green in three to claim the hole.  John now having the honors hit a beautiful approach into number 12 about 15 feet behind the hole.  Greg missed his birdie bid and John made his, match all square.  After halves on 13 and 14, Greg hit two great three woods to 10 feet short of the 15th green and managed to get up and down for birdie to take the 1 up lead. John had good looks on 16 and 17 but just missed his putts taking us to the 18th tee with Greg leading 1 up.  Greg hit the fairway and John pulled his tee shot into the left rough but drew a great lie.  John’s approach missed the green just right in the first cut pin high.  Greg hit the green and was first to play and lagged his first putt into “gimmie” range for par.  The stage was set John need to make to extend the match.  Once his chip came up just short Greg had claimed the title.

Both John and Greg played real solid golf as between the two of them they missed only three greens the entire day.  Although Greg won it was a win for the Bay Club as the professional staff once again showcased their talents.

Congratulations to both Greg and John for putting on a great show!

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.

The Cape Cod Chapter of the New England PGA

Greg Yeomans Cape Cod PGA Bay Club at MattapoisettThe Cape Cod Chapter of the New England PGA holds a combination of Pro Am, Pro Junior and professional only tournaments from late April into early November.  This past week the Bay Club at Mattapoisett hosted a Pro – 3 Amateur with twenty-four teams competing from the South Coast area including several courses from the Cape.  Last year, Bay Club at Mattapoisett Head Professional, Greg Yeomans captured the title of 2009 Cape Cod Player of the Year.

“It’s fun to be able to play in a competitive environment against some great players and bring some members along,” said the head pro at The Bay Club in Mattapoisett. “I work with a lot of our members and it gives me a measuring stick to see how I’m doing with my students. I also like to see how they respond to playing in a tournament.”

Yeoman’s foursome fared well on their home course finishing in a tie for 7th place. Fellow Bay Club professionals, Tracy Djerf and Ryan Payne also participated with each of their teams also sharing in 7th place.  In the individual professional competition, Yeomans finished tied for 3rd at even par with Djerf finishing at plus one.

Winter Indoor Golf Practice Center

Monday, 28. December 2009 23:34

Indoor Golf Facility Bay Club Mattapoisett MA

The Bay Club at Mattapoisett has opened its Winter Golf Center.  This indoor practice facility allows members to continue to improve upon their games during the off season.

Of course this facility is valuable to all Bay Club golfers, but especially fun for the techno geek hidden in most of us!  The P3Pro Swing Desktop Simulator measures swing speed, ball speed, face angle at impact, club path and angle of attack.  Now I am not quite sure what I will do with all of that information, but I can continue to work on my game in one of the three independent hitting stations which are 25 feet away from the wall, a 40 x 20 putting carpet and multiple swing training aids.  There is even a complete set up of SNAG Golf for junior use.

For those of us who just can’t get enough golf, this is a perfect playland for a cold winters day.

The Bay Club at Mattapoisett is a country club with an eighteen hole championship level golf course and residential property located in Southeastern MA.   To arrange a private tour please contact Dave Andrews via email or phone, 508-758-9543.
