Teacher’s Forum – Hovering the Club; Not Just for Drivers

Teacher’s Forum – Hovering the Club; Not Just for Drivers

I first heard of hovering the club at address when reading ”Lesson Tee” by Jack Nicklaus. He liked how it freed up his takeaway and alleviated the likelihood of being called for causing the ball to move at address. He even did it with the putter. The late Jim Flick advocated “un-weighting” the club prior to commencing the swing. Brian Manzella told me that he noticed a trend on tour of mini-hovering all clubs at address.

Parun Captures SCPGA Senior Championship

Parun Captures SCPGA Senior Championship

The 2015 edition of the Southern California PGA’s Senior Championship was held on August 24th and 25th at Oak Valley Golf Club in Beaumont, CA. The field at this year’s event was comprised of some strong players throughout the Section, ranging in age from 50 to 85 years old. The course was playing firm throughout the two day Championship and with warm temperatures in the upper 90’s made for a true test for the stacked field. The group of “experienced golfers” proved that tough conditions nor age is not factor in playing good golf. This statement was more than true for Tim Parun, PGA of The Loma Club who at the age of 55 shot back to back rounds of 69. Being two strokes down coming into the final round, Parun’s came out firing on the front nine of the final round, carding six birdies for a 31 and allowed him to climb back to the top of the leaderboard. The 6-under 138 total for the two days put Tim a mere stroke ahead of Starkjohann, who posted rounds of 70-69. Parun proved to be a birdie machine, knocking in 12 birdies over the 36 holes, with the most important coming on the final hole of the Championship. The victory was Tim’s second in the last five years at the Senior Section Championship, with his first coming in 2011. Congratulations and impressive playing Tim! seniorsection
