How to handle tough conditions

These days Wet Wednesdays are as common as Wacky Wednesdays at Steers. I don’t know why and how it’s possible, and I wish I could explain it, but it rains every Wednesday. It’s not easy playing when it’s cold and wet, but this is something we should get used to over the winter period in the Cape. Luckily it is almost summer time again.
But for now here are a few tips on how to handle tough conditions.

How To Putt Like The Pros

SEE, THEN FEEL

If you're looking for precise setup advice on stance, posture or how much to flex your knees, you've come to the wrong place. Just keep the ball the same distance from you at address--so your eyes are directly over it--then set up in a way that feels comfortable. With your eyes over the ball (above, left), you're in position to see the line, and if you're comfortable, you can concentrate on feel. My posture and stance width will change during a round (above), depending on how my body feels, but my eyes are always over the ball.
